Ratings and Reviews
Each level is broken up into small scenes, each of which is a “maze” with various elements such as levers, creatures, boulders, that you may need to move, or approach from the right direction or in the right sequence to complete the section. While a bit of imagination may be required with some of the manipulations the puzzles are very largely purely logic based. You also have gems and artefact parts to collect, which give you new outfits, and require you to spot vases. Most of which are fairly obvious. You may miss a few but the games tells you how many are in each section and lets you redo individual sections to find them. I’m about half way through. So far the puzzles have been varied and fun and for the most part no more than mildly challenging, although they do appear to be getting harder as the game progresses and more elements are introduced.
Overall, not a classic but a good game that’s easy to dip into to complete a section during a coffee break.
Great graphics and gameplay make for an all round cracker of a game. Challenging and equally frustrating I spent hours feeling my way through all the twists and turns. The core game went quicker than I thought it would but the two expansion adventures were far more difficult and entertaining. I hope there’ll be an additional campaign at some point. Just one thing I’d have liked would have been the ability to turn off the music but keep the sound effects on like other similar games, but that aside, money well spent!
I love Lara Croft GO!
This game is such a great idea, it takes elements from the classic Core series and elements from the Rebooted SquareEnix Series. It is full of content that old school fans of Tomb Raider will love, like classic outfits from TRII, TRIII to unlock. The puzzles are great as well as I actually got stuck on a few of them which I love because I felt great when I finally solved the puzzles. (Or you can download a solution pack if you really struggle) looking for Artefacts and Relics reminds me of Tomb Raider Underworld as they are hidden in pots. Most of which will be easier to find for the eagle eyed yet some are better hidden.
The Two downloadable chapters are great extensions and introduce new game mechanics so there are new puzzles and solutions to work out which makes it feel non repetitive.
All in all I’d recommend this game to people who don’t play Tomb Raider games but love a puzzle game and I hope they make a sequel as I can’t get enough of this game.
