Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is one of the most enjoyable and challenging coop games you can find with this price and super fun and engaging gameplay and mechanics in the industry, in my opinion if you play the game in coop mode with your partner you feel what this game is really made for and you see all of its potentials and greatness, and when i say to play it with a friend i really mean that because some puzzles (most of them actually) can be real hard if you are going to depend on AI as your partner, but with a skilled player you can beat and solve them much easier! you better not expect a very good story from this one though but it's quite satisfying and it shines in its own way! Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has the best experience in Coop mode, so definitely give it a try!
Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light it's a completely new and different experience Tomb Raider game. Now adapting an isometric perspective, Lara must go together, or alone, in a new adventure to discover new mysteries and treasures for her book. The levels are well made, the puzzles are fun and the combat is ok and entertaining, for the price, the game is worth the try. Especially if you love Lara Croft. Recommended.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is a cooperative top-down puzzle-action spinoff of the Tomb Raider series. It's a more light-hearted adventure than the more recent Tomb Raider games, with a sense of wonder and exploration; you'll be solving puzzles and fighting off supernatural creatures in this cartoony romp of a fun time. The co-op mechanics are incredibly well done, with much fun to be had by all. The single-player experience allows you to change between the two unique characters on the fly, but it does limit the creativity with which you can solve the puzzles. Despite this, it's still a solid experience. However, if you can, grab a second copy and play it through with a friend! The two playable characters offer unique experiences, and with optional collectables and objectives yielding additional unlocks and upgrades, there is more replayability to be had. If you're looking for a co-op game to play either locally or online, this is an instant classic.
Works fine as a nice single player adventure too, but it's best to play in coop mode. Great looking, varied and complex levels with awesome puzzles, tricky traps and some nice action moments. I love how clever some puzzles are, and that there are more than one solutions for some of them, you really need to use all your gears and your brains to solve all the obstacles. The replay value is also good, as you have many weapons, upgrades and challenges to complete. All in all, it's a fun adventure!
First game with Lara in an isometry. And it's cool. Many actions, exploration, puzzles. Pleasant cooperative mode. Good optimization for old computers. An additional plus: DLC don't affect the game. Interesting play experience for Lara Croft's fans.
