Trailer PC Xbox 360 PS3

After Kane & Lynch, it is the turn of Raziel and Kain to impose themselves in Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. If fans will be thrilled to see these two iconic characters, like us, seeing them with guns will certainly feel out of place. We'd rather they were back in a dedicated title instead of being mere player skins that are far from indispensable.

GSY Review PC Xbox 360 PS3

My friends know that the Tomb Raider franchise has always had a special place in my humble gaming career. I have indeed completed all the episodes on PS1, Dreamcast, PS2 and Xbox 360/PS3, yes even Angel of Darkness, the last episode developed by Core Design. Thankfully, since 2006, Crystal Dynamics has been in charge, and with such pedigree as the Blood omen and Soul Reaver series, the Tomb Raider games have all been pretty good since then. This new adventure of Lara Croft comes as a bit of a surprise though, as it is this time only available on Xbox Live Arcade (the PS3 and PC versions are to be released later, in about a month or so). The game mixes action, exploration and platforming sequences and uses an isometric view that is completely new to the franchise. Such a choice will probably remind you of a combination of the first Legacy of Kain and its top down view and the last game in the Raziel versus Kain story, Legacy of Kain: Defiance, which chose to propose a fixed camera for the first time. So what about Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light then? Come on inside and find out!

Eidos sent us this first trailer of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, showing a very dynamic looking game. Quite a change from Tomb Raider, but it certainly looks interesting.

Lare Croft's next adventures will be released this summer on Xbox Live, Playstation Network and PC so we will soon find out what Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is really all about. A price of 15 dollars / 15 euros should be a safe bet for this co-op game, let's hope it is worth it.

Previously announced, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has its first look with these screenshots. The game will come to unspecified platforms somewhere around in 2010.
