Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

Strategy Informer
2 January 2011
  • 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.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme

  • 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.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

Digital Chumps
4 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Presented in a gloriously isometric manner, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light doesn’t need Lara Croft – it creates a big time, engaging action action-adventure experience that stands on its own merits. Whether or not the game needed an iconic character to succeed is irrelevant; it’s absolutely loaded with well-crafted dual stick gunplay and an adventure worthy of a full retail game.

  • Summary: Lara Croft's single-player is competent but incomparable to the sheer joy of raiding tombs with a couch-side friend.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Review (PS3, PSN)

Yet Another Review Site
13 October 2010
  • Excerpt: A new Lara, nothing like the old Lara…. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is a new direction for one of gaming’s biggest icons. Leaving behind the full 3D of previous titles, GOL instead utilises an isometric view and a lower budget to try out a fresh approach to a series which has arguably gone stale in recent years. GOL is an action platformer of the old style, blending a good dose of combat, head scratching puzzles and jumpy goodness we have come to know and love.
  • Pros: Redesign is great, puzzles work, awesome multiplayer co-op, great replay value
  • Cons: Can feel a touch old fashioned, slight lack of variance with the weapons.

  • Conclusion: If you were going to spend 1200 MSP during this year’s Summer of Arcade, you will be making a hard choice between this and Limbo. But Lara Croft is certainly the one that brings the literal bang for your buck.
  • Pros: Great gunplay. Perfect pacing of action vs puzzles. Lots of options for replayability.
  • Cons: Fable II type invisible chain in co-op.
