GamesMaster have given LCGol a glowing review & scored it a whopping 88%!!!

Some snippets:
*) A shining example of download excellence.
*) A retro-inspired shooter that's small in scale, but big in entertainment.
*) Each level has ten red skulls hidden around the environments. Collect them to unlock rewards and Achievements/Trophies to boost your rankings.
*) While there's plenty of ball juggling and lever pulling, there's satisfying combat too. Pick a higher difficulty level to make the gunplay particularly frantic and fierce.
*) After a relatively shallow learning curve, Lara's latest hits its stride in the last quarter of the game; the volume and intensity of the enemies increase, the physics-based puzzles get more devious and the oh-so-tempting collectables become more treacherous to reach. The pick-up-and-play style encourages you to repeat levels, strive for scoreboard glory and speed run for success.
*) Second Opinion - A superb co-op game that hits all the right notes. The puzzles are brilliantly tricky, the shooting violently satisfying and I got to dump Shaun [primary reviewer] down a pit full of spikes. Hurrah!
*) Best Bit - Discovering a crafty way to solve a puzzle with a pal makes you feel like a genius. It's almost as much fun as some of the 'do I trust them?' moments when using Lara's grapple hook as a tight rope for Totec. Sometimes it's good to be bad.
*) Sure you can play Guardian of Light solo (Lara comes equipped with Totec's spear and some puzzles are altered to compensate for the fact that your Mayan buddy isn't there), but playing with a pal should be compulsory, as you work out what combination of spear, grapple hook, shield and explosives you'll need to overcome the next Mouse Trap.


GM LOVES:
*) Working with a buddy - Play with a mate or you'll miss out on the true essence of the gameplay.
*) Blowing up your buddy - So much temptation to get one over on your pal - things get competitive.
*) [Removed owing to mild spoiler]

GM HATES:
*) Totec is crap - Does Totec have to be such a stereotypical genero-tribesman?
*) Waiting for a full blown Lara - If we all buy this, Crystal Dynamics will know we love Lara and bring her back!

Just checked the "GM loves" spoiler and I have to say that that part sounds AWESOME (Yes I've just used caps lock for emphasis but that's how awesome I think it sounds)! :D

So we're getting a high-res version of the render? Sweet! :D

Although Lara is unbelievably cool and looks like she wants to kill everything that moves in that image, I'm actually more interested in the werewolf like creature in the background...

So there's werewolves in the game!?! With them, Chompy and the flaming T-rexes you can definitely tell that Crystal had a fun time making crazy ideas for this game!

I dont really hav any interest in this 'Laura Croft' game. Im actually kinda disapointd......
bt i will get it anyway just bc i collect all the games with this chik in it. And Laura looks part stripper as well in this game. Her shirt is wayyyy too LOW! Youv also changed her looks too much from the original tomb raiders. The originals will always look the complete BEST!

I cant wait to learn how to game design and work on my tomb raider games. i alredy hav an idea for 1. Its a sequel to AOD (the best tomb raider made). Mayb i can giv u guys ideas on the story line on some of ur games.......im just suggesting....not telling u wat to do. bt its my dream to work with games, it really is.

Judging from the grammer i'm going to take a wild stab and say you a kid but i don't believe this exempts you from continously posting that AOD is best and CD has ruined Tomb raider and lara croft. i'll be blunt because im tired. stop living in the past, the past is past its gone and will never come back, I will say good luck you to become a game designer but stop posting how AOD is great and how LCGOL is bad, when you have not even played the game

play it and you will be pleasantly surprised ;)

it's because they all get bite by a fly and they all became dummies! they like escaping from the main subject which was lara..and starting a new one..grammar! and then start judging us..forget it vampire..it's just a waste of time trying to get an answer on why they are all unfriendly! but don't judge the game already..maybe u will love it (maybe)

Apologies, have re read what i have typed and it seems a bit out of line.

But if they left Lara Croft and Tomb Raider alone then we would not get to play the games in new interesting ways. Most of the community is happy that this game is coming out it's something to bridge gap for the wait of a pillar release

It looks like the forum mods need to step in. All of the recent threads are getting polluted with nonsense & being taken off on random tangents.

Kudos to CD and I wish them the very best with their release. As to this Punk Vampire, he's obviously a troll. Have the Mods not learned how to keep their forums free from Trolls yet?

:scratch: :D
