So, here's a little hidden gem from Eidos/Square Enix: Take one of your best-known franchises, strip off the name, and re-do it as a twin-stick shooter. Do keep the puzzles & non-shooty action segments. Then, for good measure add in a co-op mode where puzzles are re-worked to actually require 2 people to solve. Oh, and make sure the levels are designed for fun.

Despite the genre-shift, and despite being a non-canon spin-off, this game does keep the Tomb Raider spirit, and is pretty solid. Main game isn't too long (I'm close to the end in 6 hrs, and taking my sweet time), but various challenges and such help extend that. (Speed-run and score-mode challenges on the levels in particular).
You get equipment upgrades from the challenges as well (any required weapons you will find in the wild though) - the later ones are pretty powerful, and especially the relics can border on being broken - only kept in check by the fact that they'll stop working for a while if you take any damage.

And like with the older Tomb Raider games, blindly rushing in will get you killed more often than not. Better keep an eye out for the various tells & signs, and make sure you time your jumps correctly.

The game does have one annoying bug: It'll just crash if you die frequently enough on the same map.

Finished 1st level, co-op online, in a whopping 41 minutes. Loved it. No clue how I didn't play this game sooner. If you are seeing it cheap, and wondering if you should try it, or if it's crap. I can tell you, it's NOT crap. Grab two copies, for a pretty cool puzzle/action/adventure Hybrid, with a pretty sexy incarnation of Lara.

Definitely a fun game, meeting with the expectations of an adventure game. It's more fun played in co-op mode but still enjoyable in single player story mode.

I was never a huge fan of the franchise, but I really enjoyed this game. The story is pretty bad as you would expect, but other than that, I don't really have any complaints. Controls are great, gameplay is fun and the difficulty was just right for me (playing on normal) - overall not particularly hard, but enough of a challenge to make me feel I was putting in a decent effort, whether I was solving puzzles or enjoying the flow of combat.

Note that as this is a console port, a gamepad is pretty much a necessity. I didn't even try the alternative (which I'm guessing is keyboard and mouse).

So yeah, overall, a very enjoyable few hours of puzzle-platform-shooter action. Check it out!

Amazing game to play on co-op.

This games is like a mixture of Diablo-style hack 'n slay and classic Tomb Raider puzzles. The game is perfect for two players requiring both their special skills for each level.

Puzzles are diverse and challenging. Definitely recommend buying this one.

I cant really remember why I bought this. Not really my type of game.

Still it has everything to offer, a 2D and a tomb Raider game needs:
- Guns
- Action
- puzzles
- more puzzles, combined with timeruns and immediate danger
- a load of achievements and unlockables
- a meaningless but still interesting story

I know, it isnt really 2D. Looking from above, you have to jump over gaps, climb and do acrobatics. Guns and tools are aimed with the position of your mouse, which is actually good and precise. Sometimes going full ♥♥♥♥♥♥, the controls feel good and the camera position never annoys you.

I DONT recommend the coop mode (split screen is working), because of disconnects, and a lot of asynchronous gameplay, that will hinder you doing most of the puzzles and combo moves.

Also, coop is more difficult, because of more enemys and the fact that everything, you need two people for, is dumbed down in single player, making it more easy for single players, because you dont need to play perfectly with a partner.
Also having a highscore in a coop game? Without shared points? Who thought that would be a good idea? Now, ether both players fight about the points, or play every map two times, so everyone gets the point rewards. The coop is sadly a big flaw of the game.

CONTRO:
-Many problem to start a co-op game.

Based mostly upon the level of game-play and enjoyability even though there is a couple of small issues and not exactly envelope-pushing graphics Laura Croft & the Guardian of Light earns a solid 8.3 out of 10. Definitely worth the purchase especially if you intend on player multi-player, enjoy.

A very different style of Tomb Raider game. I never got to experience the multiplayer aspect, unfortunately, but the singleplayer holds up just fine. The story is nothing special, especially compared to the new Tomb Raider game. Game mechanics work well and the puzzles aren't terribly difficult, but are challenging enough. Some of the level challenges are considerably more difficult than others and many can be missed. Not a huge variety of enemies and the tactic for taking all of them down is basically to just dodge and shoot continuously. But not a bad game overall.

A pretty fun co-op experience. Game works pretty well, with a ton of replayability from the scoring system and all the unlocks. If you want a fun and relatively short co-op platformer with a focus on puzzles, go for it!
