    Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris’s new mechanics and graphical improvements make it a must-have for any couch co-op fan.

    While certainly not a successor to the main Tomb Raider series, I think both fans of action and platforming puzzlers will get some enjoyment out of this one.

    The real treasure in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris wasn't Lara’s story, bipedal alligator warriors, or a bounty of gems, but solving complex and varied environmental puzzles with friends.

    Huge fun with friends and enjoyable on your own, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a strong follow-up to Guardian of Light. It might retread a lot of old ground from its predecessor, but it also offers enough twists and interesting puzzles to keep you playing for a good few hours, making it well worth excavating and dusting off.

    It's not the revelation that Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was--it's a bit too glitchy and dated to herald it a new classic, in spite of the welcome addition of four-person online play.
  6. 70
    Not as compelling as its predecessor, but as a four-player alternative to the Lego games this an enjoyable enough attempt at a Tomb Raider lite.

    It’s often said that co-op makes any game better but in this case, co-op is the only way to glean any enjoyment from the game at all. Played alone, Temple Of Osiris struggles to evade box-ticking tedium and it’s only when confusion and banter come into play that it’s even worth considering.

Instead,An excellent combination of combat, platforming, and puzzle solving. This spin-off doesn't follow the traditional Tomb Raider mold. Instead, it's a more arcade style twin-stick shooter with an emphasis on co-operative multiplayer. Don't let it's top-down perspective fool you into thinking it's some of Diablo clone. You won't be going around blasting through a constant stream of enemies and picking up the loot they drop. Those elements are here, but in very small ways. The core tenets of the main series are still in place. While there are regular enemy encounters, they are spaced out enough so that the puzzles and platforming take center stage.

    The game is a blast whether you are playing by yourself or with up to three friends. It's an incredibly smooth and well made experience. The boss fights due tend to fall back on that irritating trope of spawning standard minions to get in your way, but it was an easier thing to put up here than it is in other games. While the game was made with co-op in mind, the single-player experience is strong enough to stand on it's own. In fact, the way the game tailors the dungeons to fit the number of people onscreen makes it feel like you're getting two games in one.

    With plenty of post-game challenges and hidden content scattered throughout the world, there proves to be quite a bit of content in Osiris' temple. It could also prove to be a nice breath of fresh air for the series. Fans who want to spend more time with Lara in a new way now have that option without having to worry about the main series going through some unwanted changes. It's one heck of a spin-off that I would love to see return for a third entry at some point in the future.

    Generally a fun game. This is not a first person game but, a top down (2.5) type of game. If you like those Lego type of puzzle games orGenerally a fun game. This is not a first person game but, a top down (2.5) type of game. If you like those Lego type of puzzle games or just enjoy the constant barrage that a hack and slash type of game brings then you will like this game. I have not had a chance to play the co-op mode (up to 3 additional local or online) but it looks like fun. In co-op mode you can work together and then turn on your fellow adventurers - seeking their death for the treasure and points. Apparently, adding more players just doesn't make the same levels harder (e.g. the standard more monsters to deal with) it actually rearranges the levels (but, like I said I have not played co-op yet) Another nice feature it that Osiris will allow to change both the time of day and current weather you are playing in and in turn these affect the type of enemies that you have to deal with. However, if you had a choice between this and Diablo (the hack and slash king) I would chose Diablo. Osiris does have more advance and rewarding puzzles but, it's story is not as complete and fulfilling as Diablo III. Expand

    Creo que este Tomb Raider es uno de los que menos pretenciones ha tenido nunca. Su meta es la de entretenernos durante unas 6 horas de juegoCreo que este Tomb Raider es uno de los que menos pretenciones ha tenido nunca. Su meta es la de entretenernos durante unas 6 horas de juego con puzzles divertidos y un sistema de juego sólido. Tiene buena música y un estilo visual bastante armonioso con su temática. Ofrece un multijugador local u online para los calabozos.

    Fuera de lo anterior aquí no hay nada, cero guion, personajes o desafios. El juego es sencillo, corto y sabe lo que quiere: entretener. El problema es que sólo consigue eso.
