IMPORTANT: If you haven't already done so, you may want to review the INTRODUCTORY NOTES on the storyline, controls and saving/checkpoints. These appear at the start of the PROLOGUE walkthrough.
As always, I highly recommend that you do not rely exclusively on the autosave. Instead be sure to save manually at least once or twice each level. Then, if you miss something or run into a bug, you can reload rather than having to replay the entire level.

LEVEL 2: COASTAL THAILAND - PART 4: A PUPPET NO LONGER
FLOODED ROOM WITH BROKEN WALKWAY: Use the ring on the ceiling to grapple swing across the gap to the other side. If Lara falls into the water, there's a small ledge below one end of the broken walkway where she can climb out.
On the other side, go to the far left corner of the room and climb the handholds between the rocks. Climb to the left end of the higher handhold and jump to grab the horizontal pole sticking out of the wall. This is actually a lever. Hang on as Lara's weight pulls it down, opening the underwater door below.
UNDERWATER TUNNEL: Drop into the water. Swim through the doorway and along the tunnel. If you swim quickly, you can probably make it to the end of the tunnel without stopping for air. But if you need it, there's an air pocket near the ceiling about halfway along. When you reach the big door at the end of the tunnel, swim forward to end the level.
Cinematic: Lara climbs back onto the boat and grabs her laptop for a little conference with the boys back at home. She tells Zip and Alister about the map and her father's involvement. She says she's convinced he kept a record of the map's contents and that he found and hid the other gauntlet. . . .right under their noses. We then see her motoring toward home.
†UPDATE HISTORY: 1/2/09 - First draft of walkthrough (Nintendo Wii version) posted online.
2/8/09 - First revision with PS2-exclusive information posted.
6/13/09 - Removed a bug note that was included in the original version, since the glitch in question apparently does not occur in the PS2 game. Thanks to Sean and Treeble for this info.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: Very special thanks (the most special kind possible) to Fiona M. and John W. for helping me update the Wii walkthrough for PS2 players. As many of you know, I don't own a PS2, so writing this walkthrough would not have been possible without their help. Special thanks also (the next best level of special) to Treeble for helping us find all the treasures. You guys are treasures to me!
