Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
Technical gremlins aside, this is vintage Lara Croft with fantastic shooting and adventuring.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Review
by on July 8, 2011
Lara Croft’s most recent outings have recaptured the magic of the early Tomb Raider games, and Guardian of Light is a particularly satisfying chapter in her story – provided you can ignore a few irksome technical issues.
Not content with merely retooling the old Tomb Raider formula, the developer has taken a twin-stick shooter and built a thoroughly engrossing Lara Croft game around it.
The levels are rich with detail and challenging puzzles, involving unlocking gateways, platforming and grappling. Camera and control issues occasionally rear their heads but not enough to spoil things.
You can also play co-operatively over Bluetooth and online, with a second player taking control of Lara’s buddy Totec as they use their skills to help each other out.
Be warned, the game crashed regularly on a second-generation iPod touch, but Guardian of Light is a wonderfully fulfilling adventure on newer hardware.
