This is an amazing game! A Tomb Raider game from an isometric perspective letting you complete it in coop mode, too! You cannot go wrong with such an approach! You have action, you have puzzles, you have collectibles and you have a very good level design. Some of the collectibles are difficult to obtain so there is replayibility here. Also, some puzzles / challenges are completely different in coop, thus, the game should at least be completed twice (alone and with a friend) for the different experience.

For me Guardian of Light was a nice surprise after the many third-person shooter episodes. Interestingly, the idea and the development came from the same team so this really is a thumbs-up!

This game is pretty good and kinda surprised me.Its in short a top down Tomb Raider game.Kinda feels like a hack n slash mixed in with a puzzle game.The controlls are pretty tight and can use controller or Keyboard and Mouse.The game has SIngle Player and Co-Op so thats pretty neat.One player takes control over Lara and they other plays as Totec an ancient Mayan warrior and leader of the Army of Light.So do you have what it takes to stop the evil Xolotl !! If you do give this game a go.

P.S cant wait for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light 2 !! =D

Trust fall, the game.

I also battled a flaming T-Rex that shot fireballs out of its mouth, using a gatling gun.

Can't wait for the sequel.

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!
