Lara Croft and the Banality of Whatever

I was a big fan of the rebooted Tomb Raider where we join a young Lara Croft in a more gritty setting where she isn't a fabled tomb raider quite yet. This is not that game. Temple of Osiris is a Unity game - a top-down isometric shooter where you run around Egypt with some resurrected gods (only some of whom are trying to kill you) while collecting monies, power-ups and trying not to blow yourself up or fall down pits due to the crappy camera. If you can't tell, I'm not a huge fan, though, begrudgingly, I kept with it for the multi-player aspect.

Presentation: The game is not pretty. I am told this is a sequel to Guardians of Light (which I have seen briefly but since it's only a two-player coop, and I'm lazy, I haven't actually played) - and it is also apparently a step down in terms ...

Sloppy Second

“Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris” (“LCTO”) is the 2014 follow-up title to 2010’s “Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light,” which took the character(s) and lore of the venerable ‘Tomb Raider’ franchise out of the big-budget “AAA” space and plopped them into a demastered, top-down/isometric environment that focuses more on puzzles than flashy graphics or setpieces. I didn’t know what to think of this demastered take on ‘Tomb Raider’ going in, as someone who quickly grew to despise the series on the PS1, but I am pleased to report that, while it suffers from some technical issues not present in its immediate predecessor, “LCTO” is a very enjoyable experience.

Presentation
“LCTO” is made in Unity. That should give away the fact that it’s not an over-the-top treat for the senses....

Rating of
4/5
