    This is, quite simply, a stunning game.

Although I am yet to try co-op (which is supposed to be the best thing about the game), the single player boasts a variety of level designs, weapons, enemies, and, most importantly, achievements. These features will want you coming back for more time and again, and if you finish the game completely, there's always the option to purchase DLC in the form of extra challenge rooms, which extends the pleasurable experience of this game. With about 7 hours gameplay I would definitely recommend buying this if you are looking to get a PSN game. Expand

    this is my most favorite tombraider...more top down baldurs gate. than behind the back 3d. lack of two player support when it became a download killed my buzz...its a dual stick game. you need to move with left aim with right...online please have a mic AND use it. try adventuring in a game like this with a micless person. uberfrustrating

    This game takes all the elements of Tomb Raider and shoves them into an exciting top down action game. It is a worthy Tomb Raider game and interesting platformer / puzzle game. This has more gameplay than Drake's Fortune. Every room and level is exciting to explore. Danger is everywhere. This kind of feels like a hybrid of Tomb Raider and something older, like Pitfall.

    Great game. Lots of fun. Great puzzles that can be frustrating, but rewarding. Seems like there's tons of collectibles and challenges to make you replay each level over and over. Well worth the 15 bucks.

    Hermoso juego descargable via PSN, una aventura entretenida llena de puzzles, accion y logros por desbloquear.
    El modo cooperativo es muy divertido y es genial la forma en que interactuan los jugadores ayudandose tanto en las batallas como en los puzzles.

    Muy bien por Square Enix, dio en el clavo y ahora acaba de rematar lanzando el origen de Lara Croft en TOMB RAIDER.

Although the camera does need some getting used to this game still has great combat and exploration present in the best games of the series. The levels are incredibly detailed and makes exploration a pleasure in itself with plenty of rewards to the thorough players. These rewards are very varied some are immediate like guns and others help in the various objectives that the game has to offer. Lara's method is more combat oriented and there is plenty of opportunity to use your guns and its great that the controls are very easy and makes shooting a breeze. its incredible that all the weapons are effective, some are better than others and you're sure to have a favorite. The puzzles are also great and some provide a lot of opportunity to use your noggin. There is plenty of fun in single player, but the game stands out when you have a friend...it gives you a whole new way to play the game and its great. A set back of the game is the plot, its not great and is easily forgettable when you get in the action. Expand

    This PlayStation Network game is the comeback of Lara Croft. The gameplay is great, the graphics are fantastic and the sound is pretty cool. You can play the whole game in co-op (offline) and in the future online. Must have!

    In a year of shining PSN goodness, Guardian of Light draws its guns against DeathSpank, Shank and Scott Pilgrim and shoots them like endagered animals. [Issue#51, p.102]
