At the time of writing LCGoL is sitting pretty on Metacritic with an average score of 89%!!!

Here is the breakdown of the 27 reviews:
Positive: 27
Mixed: 0
Negative: 0

That is pretty impressive!

Keep an eye on it here: http://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-360/lara-croft-and-the-guardian-of-light/critic-reviews

Here is a snippet from the Telegraph:
You will rarely find a game that offers such phenomenal value for money, even at full price I would wholeheartedly recommend it. It's an exciting reinvention for a heroine whose light has unfortunately faded in recent years; an exciting parade of action, puzzling and exploration elegantly crafted with fresh direction, all while retaining that familiar Tomb Raider ethos.

LOLZ! I downloaded the 360 trial overnight, had a quick crack at it this morning & will have a proper go at it tonight. To be honest, the trial is more than enough until the full release next month. I wil be picking up the PS3 version.

For a twin stick shooter, it feels really good. Cannot be fairly compared to 'Tomb Raider', but is a nice diversion whilst we wait.

One thing that I did notice is that, for an Aztec tribesman, Totec speaks remarkably good English :rasp:

Congratulations, CD! The development team took a risk and it was definately worth it, despite early negative reactions :thumb:

A very funny video review by a Lara Croft impersonator: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/bt/aj/ajsreview/27640-aj-laracroftreviewlisa

It scores 9 out of 10
