Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light online patch
The latest PSN (and PC and XBLA) Lara Croft title received a long-awaited patch yesterday that allows for online co-op play. The game takes a turn from the usual Lara Croft FPS formula by presenting the characters in a somewhat distant 3rd-person perspective. The game is much more an action-puzzler than a shooter. Integral to the game dynamic is co-op play with two characters who have unique abilities: Lara and Totec, the fleshly manifestation of an Aztec god. In single player, Lara gets all of Totec’s abilities in addition to her own, and the game gets, well, boring. My wife and I have had fun with the local co-op, so online co-op is a most welcome addition.
