Haven't played a Lara Croft game since the PSX days, not including a little time I spent with Anniversary. How are the more recent ones faring? I love Arkham City/Asylum and the Assassins Creed series. How do the Tomb Raiders stack up?
The Tomb Raider games are more similar to Prince of Persia, they're 3D platformers with puzzle solving, acrobatics and occasional combat. I'd rank them Anniversary, Underworld and Legend, but they are all good games.
Guardian of Light is different, it's top down and isometric, but it's very much in the same spirit and also a lot of fun. And it has coop.
