Video game royalty makes its presence felt at #6 with the incredibly refreshing, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
The PlayStation Network has come a very long way in the last five years.
Believe it or not, there was a time when merely a handful of games were available on the PlayStation Store, and only a fraction of those were actually worth playing. However, nowadays, Sony’s online service is full to bursting with quality titles that have no doubt had your virtual wallet begging for mercy on more than one occasion.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light takes the well known tomb raiding heroine on her most enjoyable adventure yet. Gone are the days of solo expeditions, slow methodical platforming, and clunky gunplay mechanics.
Instead, the Guardian of Light is a faster paced action platformer with an emphasis on cooperative gameplay and clever puzzles. Even the viewpoint is different, with the camera now taking an isometric perspective instead of the 3rd person viewpoint the Tomb Raider series is known for.
Lara Croft fans will not be disappointed with this much needed departure.
Remember a while back when Laura Croft and the Guardian of Light was announced, and Crystal Dynamics said it arrive for the X-Box 360 first? At that time, we here at the Attitude Towers all had a good laugh because we found out that the 360 version was going to lack co-op, despite its early release. Come to find out, the joke’s on us.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is unlike any Tomb Raider game you have ever played. Despite that, there is still a strong sense of familiarity that long time fans will enjoy.
This is not your typical Tomb Raider.
The latest press release for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has revealed details about the gameplay, a fresh batch of screenshots and concept art.
The game is expected to mark a significant shift away from the origins of the series: for a start, it will lead with the Lara Croft brand in favour of the traditional Tomb Raider title; it’s going to be distributed as a downloadable only title; it’s the first Lara Croft game with co-op; a fixed camera will also be used for the first time; and it’s expected to be a lot more action packed than previous Tomb Raider games, with concept art showing Lara sporting a flame thrower and other screenshots picturing Lara facing up to a cluster of giant spiders.
