Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
I got a couple of years ago the special box of Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. The one with the art and little Lara doll.
Since then I've been playing it on-and-off the game.
It takes a while for you to recognize this as a Tomb Raider game.
And you mainly do that because of the puzzles. Because besides that it's different.
You don't get to feel the same third-person feeling of surviving like you get on the normal series games. Specially since the 2013 reboot (which I finished and enjoyed so much...).
But you sure get the millimetric jumps. And even more difficult because you play with a isometric camera which sometimes is a pain to get the controls right to make Lara go in the right direction.
Besides that you get pretty good graphics. Not only on the cut scenes but also during the game play.
Which works like an RPG game remembering those full of dungeons to explore. But here you don't have to destroy your mouse while smashing your enemies. Here you have a bit more tactic to care about.
Which is a nice approach to the game.
You also have multiplay modes. But since I don't like playing online I've never tried those yet. So I don't quite know yet how those go.
I'm more old school and like to enjoy a lonely journey with a good story.
You will collect new weapons and cloths and other RPG stuff that will help you improve throughout the game.
You also have pretty big and nasty bosses to beat.
I already had to watch some youtube videos to pass some puzzles but also some bosses. The game is tricky sometimes.
Lots of Egyptian things...well, that's the game theme.
You have to collect pieces of statues. Nice foot.
This one was quite difficult to pass. But the satisfaction you get in the end pays it off.
My Steam page says I've spent 10 hours already playing this game. I'm that clumsy or it is quite difficult for sure. Only unlocked 14 achievements from the available 40. Damnnnnnnn I say it's difficult.
