Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Pros: Tactical, frantic twin-stick shooting, Fun puzzles, especially in co-op, Doesn't require a second player to be fun
  • Cons: No online co-op until a patch comes, A couple of weird bugs in co-op, May not satisfy those looking for pure action or puzzles

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light review (X360)

HonestGamers
22 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Besides puzzles, the game also offers a nearly perfect combat system. As Lara explores the fourteen stages in which her adventure unfolds, she'll do battle with all manner of monsters: gators, spiders, magicians, demons, skeletons and dinosaurs. She carries around a giant spear that she can toss repeatedly at her foes, her signature handguns and a whole arsenal of special weapons that she can acquire along the way.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

True achievements

  • Conclusion: They looked almost impossible at first, but as I am sure you are all aware, a little practice makes it a lot easier. All in all this is one of the best Xbox Live Arcade games I have played, and I picked it up in the Christmas sales, so the price was very nice as well. I would highly recommend taking a friend along for the ride, as well as using Kane and Lynch (free DLC) for your second play through.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

The Gamers Temple
31 October 2010
  • Excerpt: In many ways Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light reminds me of action-RPGs like Dark Alliance and the numerous imitators it spawned on the last generation of consoles, and, more recently, games like Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2. While Guardian of Light isn't an action-RPG per se, it plays a lot like one with experience points replaced with points used purely for scoring and a greater emphasis on platform elements in its puzzles.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (X360) - Review

VGChartz
16 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Being quite successful for the third year in a row, Xbox Live's "Summer of Arcade" has given the community over a dozen quality titles to keep the summer months from becoming the usual gaming lull. Fall is right around the corner (and with it, the "Feast of Arcade"), but XBLA has one more gem for us to put in our libraries and a kibosh on the summer, and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is quite possibly the best of the five game bunch, toting an all new top down...

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (Xbox360)

  • Excerpt: Lara Croft has had somewhat of a rocky videogame career, it started out well enough when the British archeologist debuted back in 1996 in Tomb Raider on the Sega Saturn. The savvy lass went on to star in a number of games after that, but it soon became apparent that things had started to go a little downhill for Lara when The Angel of Darkness was released to lukewarm reception.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
1 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Games starring Lara Croft are normally rather lonely affairs, although the latest game to star the famous adventuress is anything but lonely. This downloadable title has an emphasis on cooperative play and also has lots and lots of enemies to shoot. If you want a Lara Croft game (the Tomb Raider title isn’t attached to this one) that gives you a chill down your spine as you run around the environments, then Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light isn’t going to suit, but...

  • Summary: Lara Croft is back again, in a new angle and a brand new adventure that puts some of the older Tomb Raider games to shame. Games Xtreme helps her to catch an evil spirit that once more threatens the world.
