Kane and Lynch go tomb raiding.
Thankfully, this game also comes with the option to play as Kane and Lynch via DLC. Kane and Lynch are a great team and have not really had their moment in the spotlight yet, so the option to play Guardian of Light with those characters appealed to me. It's just a bit annoying that they chose to bleep out all the swearing.
The game itself plays sort like Dungeon Siege in that it features mild puzzle-solving, ancient, crumbling temples (and dungeons), artifact power-ups, and a whole bunch of lava monsters and giant spiders. It's an easily consumable game, split into decent-sized chapters that are not too daunting. I played single-player all the way through, but toyed with two-player for a few levels and it's definitely more fun that way.
Forget Lara, go for Kane and Lynch.
