Awesome, thanks for posting!

A quote from the Eurogamer review:

This is because every level in Guardian of Light has been built twice – once for one player, and once for two. Playing in co-op is not just a matter of squishing more enemies, or standing on two switches instead of one – the levels and puzzles are significantly different, and satisfyingly clever. Entire set-pieces play out differently, meaning that the game is still a surprise in multiplayer even if you've already conquered the levels solo.

Thatīs great. :)

The only thing the reviewers seem to find lacking is the story. Lol, itīs an arcade game, the last thing I want is some way too serious story with supposedly clever plot-twists and all that crap. (The story was never that great in Tomb Raider games anyway...)

It a pleasant suprise to see this as getting such good reviews, I was very "meh" on it.

Will probably end up picking up a 2100 tomorrow and get this and Limbo....plus my returned 400 points :p

Hope the proposed DLC is as good as the main game, could give the game a lot of legs with some decent support.

yeah, new issue of Game Informer just gave this a 9 out 10, and it got their game of the month award. Love Crystal Dynamics - ever since they took over the IP, they've brought it back in full force to what it should have been doing consistently since 1996.

Definitely looking forward to another Lara adventure. Looks great. :Bounce:

Cant' wait to shoot things too! :uzi:

Just wish the online co-op was working at launch. I'll pick it up, but may wait until the patch. Kinda wanted to play the game the first time through online with a friend for the fun of it. It'll still be fun either way though. :)

Other than it being a bit hard (getting swarmed by enemies; health rapeage), it's really quite fun. Nice to see Lara back in a genuinely great game.

I switched to easy. Although I haven't died, I've lost like a lot of health. So it's not that easy.

Or maybe I suck.

Yeah, I probably suck.
