Storyline

Two thousand years ago in Central America a battle was waged between Totec, the Guardian of the Light, and Xolotl, the Keeper of Darkness. Totec's army was defeated but he survived the battle and found a way to imprison Xolotl in the mirror of smoke and become its immortal guardian in the form of a stone statue. In the present day, Lara Croft reads of the legend and attempts to finds the mirror. While examining it, she is caught unaware by a band of mercenaries that, led by the local warlord, followed her into the temple. The warlord takes it from Lara and unintentionally releases Xolotl. Totec comes to life and he and Lara must stop Xolotl before the light of dawn.

Kane and Lynch go tomb raiding.
9 August 2012 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

I have to admit, Lara Croft's heyday is over. She's had a few redesigns in the past few years in an attempt to make her less pneumatic, but she reached the height of her popularity with the Angelina Jolie movies...11 years ago!

Thankfully, this game also comes with the option to play as Kane and Lynch via DLC. Kane and Lynch are a great team and have not really had their moment in the spotlight yet, so the option to play Guardian of Light with those characters appealed to me. It's just a bit annoying that they chose to bleep out all the swearing.

The game itself plays sort like Dungeon Siege in that it features mild puzzle-solving, ancient, crumbling temples (and dungeons), artifact power-ups, and a whole bunch of lava monsters and giant spiders. It's an easily consumable game, split into decent-sized chapters that are not too daunting. I played single-player all the way through, but toyed with two-player for a few levels and it's definitely more fun that way.

Forget Lara, go for Kane and Lynch.
