Excerpt: 04/21/2016 Review for KOI on the PS4 was published. Video for FFG Unboxing (2 Loot Anime April 2016) was published. Video for The Peanuts Movie Snoopy’s Grand Adventure (Gameplay Part 8) on the PS4/Wii U/Nintendo 3DS/Xbox One/Xbox 360 was published.
Excerpt: It's quite remarkable that Crystal Dynamics has been able to create a game that feels designed for solo play just as much as it does for co-op. On my first run through the studio's download-only Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, the mixture of combat, puzzles and platforming seemed built around...
Conclusion: I for one hope that Crystal Dynamics, Eidos and Square Enix take the lessons learned from this title and apply them to the next disc-based Tomb Raider title, but while we wait for that this is a game well worth experiencing.
Excerpt: I still remember when the first Tomb Raider came out on the original Playstation. Sure, we all ran out and bought the game because of the buxom Lara Croft, but what kept is around was the gameplay, which was a nice mix of adventure and puzzle solving. Oh, and a dinosaur. Can't forget that.
Excerpt: Lara Croft is an icon of the industry but she has been mostly non-existent this generation. It seems Crystal Dynamics is working on a full-fledged installment for release some time next year – yet to be confirmed – but in the meantime, we’ve got a downloadable iteration of Lara’s latest.
Conclusion: At a nice price point and providing a polished product, Lara Croft makes a triumphant return from semi-obscurity. Clever level and challenge design with the promise of more to come makes this a contender for PSN Game of the Year status.
Summary: Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is the video game you never knew you always wanted to play. Who would have guessed that last-generation video game sex symbol Lara Croft would come out swinging with an action-crammed co-op action-puzzle-platformer hybrid that absolutely kicks ass?
Pros: Tight Controls, Thoughtful Puzzles, Engaging Co-Op, Amazing Graphics For A Downloadable Game
Excerpt: Focusing less on her tight tops and short shorts, Guardian of Light lets Lara do what she does best: kick ass, collect treasure, and decipher brain-bending puzzles. The addition of co-op and several other game-changing tweaks only serve to complement this can’t-miss formula.
Pros: A seamless blend of the series’ trademark puzzling, exploration and combat gameplay in a neat new package.
