Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light News

Crystal Dynamics won't continue the Guardian of Light series

"We are anxious to see what else we can do in connected play."

Tomb Raider was always a series about being alone, solving puzzles in a 3D space, but somehow Crystal Dynamics proved that Lara's adventures could be just as rewarding in an isometric co-op game in the surprise hit Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Unfortunately, it looks like the critically acclaimed digital title was a mere one-off rather than the start of a side-series.

EU PlayStation Store update - 16th November

Call of Duty: Black Ops for £48.

Thank goodness the year-late Call of Duty: Black Ops only costs £47.99 or €59.99 on PlayStation Store - for a moment there I thought it would be more expensive than Modern Warfare 3!

As balance, the "ridiculously absorbing" Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes HD has halved in price to £6.29. Definitely buy it.

Also worth serious consideration: excellent games Beyond Good & Evil HD at a new price of £4, and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light at a new price of £5.
