One of the peculiarities of this title is that it offers the ability to play cooperatively with up to four people and all from a totally different perspective with other Lara Croft titles. With stunning visuals and a renewed history, we need to cooperate with other players to explore the temple and discover its secrets and treasures. This Gold Edition comes with the original game plus the Season Pass, so we have access to all the expansions that are released for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.
I have fond memories of the latest rendez-vous with Miss Croft in the Temple of Osiris and I wish you the same. [02/2015, p.50]
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a fun experience that shines when played alone but also with a few friends. Bear in mind that cooperation is key and you might need some time before you get accustomed to the problematic controls.
Last year’s Guardian of Light was quite the surprise hit for me: the mixture of arcade-shooting and interesting puzzle-segments was a lot of fun – especially in coop. With Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Crystal Dynamics didn’t focus on anything innovative but rather on delivering good gameplay, beautifully designed levels and cool coop-puzzles (this time you can even play in a team of four). So if you don’t expect Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris to add mind blowing new elements and are satisfied with “only” a solid sequel, I can only recommend it.
The reality is if you’re looking for this kind of puzzle-action isometric fix, there’s not a shortage of games out there which can offer it. So presumably Lara herself is the lure, however, like I said before the story and characters were, for me, anything but a strong point. That said, this is a decent game with enjoyable puzzle mechanics, a slick combat system and smooth luminous graphics. Just don’t expect any surprises, you’re getting exactly what you see.
A nice Christmas gift for the fans of ‘classic’ Lara Croft.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a co-op game. It is easy but nice to play, and the trivial story makes it a great game for anyone. The difficulty in this game is not challenging, which means that getting better armor does not really change a lot. Easy is easy.
In the end, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris was almost an enjoyable sequel to Guardian of Light. However, it’s impossible to look past its glaring problems with performance, which sully what could have been an otherwise enjoyable sequel.
