Gamepro: First look at the new Lara Croft

Lara Croft Diablo clone...

I don't get it? You can barely even see Lara's guns...

    Core to this impression is the fact that the viewpoint has shifted from behind Lara to a fixed isometric viewpoint. This has freed the development team to focus more on the content of Guardian of Light, and less on managing camera angles or wrangling the graphics engine. It's also particularly useful for accommodating the title's fundamental shift toward being a two player co-operative action experience. Players work together to fight off large swarms of bad guys, and solve environmental puzzles by taking advantage of the key characters' core strengths.

The title of the new game is Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. It will be digital distribution only and the demo was running on an Xbox 360.

If there's one thing I hate more than erratic over-the-shoulder third person camera, it's a fixed isometric viewpoint.

That and the digital distribution only thing.
