Moving on with Ms Croft, I have managed to finally best the monster bear but not before it kicked seven shades of snot out of me. It means I have made progress but at great loss to personal health.
I am now in the Glacial Caverns of Siberia and it looks damn hard- and cold.
For me the greatest difficulty lies in mastering the array of buttons and switches and I am still making so many many mistakes hitting the wrong option. I am sure that will improve but it is taking time.
