Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is an isometric puzzle adventure available today for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It is the sequel to Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light and plays very similarly. The two player coop has been extended to four player coop and puzzles change based on the number of players so that cooperation is required to solve the puzzles when playing with others. It is a great idea that make playing with friends after playing alone a lot more interesting.
Eurogamer’s review by Christian Donlan summarizes the game well: “… the whole thing remains a breathless rush between one classic Tomb Raider idea and the next: a gentle puzzle (generally involving rolling boulders about or dodging spikes), a quick burst of combat, and then some light platforming and a crazy race over treacherous ground that’s just itching to drop away beneath you.”
He concludes with: “This is the only real problem, in fact: Osiris is so good at braiding its simple pieces together that it takes a while for you to notice that none of the individual parts of the game are truly first-rate. … Still, The Temple of Osiris is a welcome throwback, and for the five or six hours it took me to barrel through the campaign, the rest of the world blinked away as the sands swept in and the ancient machinery started to turn.”
