Oct 20, 2010If you don't have a friend within driving distance, you may want to wait until Guardian of Light's online multiplayer is switched on; the game's single-player mode is competent but incomparable to the sheer joy of raiding tombs with a friend.
Oct 20, 2010The level design is as epic as ever, with puzzles spanning entire vistas littered with tunnels, tombs, torturous traps, and more.
Oct 20, 2010The experience of the Crystal Dynamics designers and their investment to start this spin-off series on the right foot are certainly visible in every aspect of the game, and I can't help but be thrilled by the new way in which we'll be able to hunt ancient relics with lady Croft.
Oct 20, 2010Every hour we've spent playing this game (be it offline co-op or solo play) was tremendously fun.
Oct 20, 2010Exploration, combat, and puzzle-solving come together beautifully in this rewarding, replayable arcade adventure.
Edge MagazineOct 20, 2010As the more intimate title suggests, this may be as much about Croft's brand awareness in the face of unprecedented (and Uncharted) competition. [Oct 2010, p.96]

Mar 6, 2013This may be my personal favorite Tomb Raider game, although it technically isn't part of the series. The co-op play is the best I have everThis may be my personal favorite Tomb Raider game, although it technically isn't part of the series. The co-op play is the best I have ever experienced. I have gone through the co-op game with 6 other people at this point. Single player isn't as strong because it is clear the game was built off of teamwork. Totec and Lara are both flat characters, but it isn't the story we're after here, it is the puzzles and challenges. Pros:
Neat isometric game which makes use of 3D and jumping like never before seen in a game this style.
Excellent teamwork mechanics in which both players are needed to accomplish goals.
Puzzles are well designed, thought out, and gives you a feeling of being heroic. Some of the best level designing I have seen in a game of this style. Combat is fun and collecting items is addictive, New Game Plus is great for speed running.
Puzzle DLC is innovative and also great for speed running.
Cons: PC controls are terrible.
Only official Microsoft Controllers work properly with the game.
Bad at performance even on a super-powered rig.
No windowed option.
Obviously designed with an XBOX 360 first mentality as the PC and PS3 are inferior to that game.
Extremely fun game once you have it operating at its best. I have over 100 hours into it after 3 years and it is a game I can go back to all the time. If you like to speed run platformers, then this is one of the best. Glitches, zips, and skips are littered throughout the game making it enjoyable even after you can beat it in under 30 minutes. At less than $20....it is a steal.… Expand

Jan 17, 2012Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is not your traditional Tomb Raider game but this addition to the series is a welcome to not only theLara Croft and the Guardian of Light is not your traditional Tomb Raider game but this addition to the series is a welcome to not only the series but the Isometric action game genre... with one exception (and a pretty big one). The Visual during game play are very detailed but not excessive to the point of distraction. enemies look diverse enough to know which type they are without having to look directly at them. The Story is on the weak side but is interesting enough to make you want to know the conclusion. Lara is hired by a group of "explorers" to find the legendary Mirror of Shadows. They removed the Mirror from it's resting place and awake Xolotl from his sealed prison. The Guardian of Light, Totec, is brought back to life and with the help of Lara, must defeat Xolotl and seal him back in the mirror...
The Game play is where its at! It's fast pace and non stop... BUT i have played this game with both first K&M and then game pad (xbox 360 controller) and this game absolutely terrible to play with K&M. There are some severe navigation issues when moving the stone balls from location to the other and having to place a bomb, roll and detonate the bomb is a real task. Now playing with the game pad is controlling Lara in action perfect (makes sense, since it is a XBLA game), but makes aiming seem a little tedious when compared to the mouse's point and click shooting. Single player and online co-op both smoothly with co-op reigning supreme when compared to each other.
Replay Value in this game is great. each mission as three levels of score total, three to five map challenges and 4-7 bonus items on each mission. giving you three way to play each mission in and different levels of difficulty, you can easily spend 15-18 hours on this game
The Music is good and keeps the atmosphere and action going but the voice acting is sub par.
Overall: This game would have gotten a 5/10 for having bad K&M and below average voice acting and story but the action in the game, online co-op, the ease of playing with a game pad and the incredible amount of replay value earns this an extremely solid 8.
Just make sure you have a game pad for this game.… Expand

Et l'étron, l'infâme étron ne se lance pas ! on est sur PC après tout : sur cette plate-forme, c'est comme au service, on a droit à 5% de pertes.
Pas si grave, j'y ai joué sur le Xbox Live Arcade : on se rend très vite compte de la nullité du truc. Lara Crott se met donc à l'indé pour la gamelle et s'avère décidément abonnée à la médiocrité perpétuelle. Inutile de s'attarder plus avant sur cet ersatz minable, il est temps de tirer la chasse.… Expand
