No, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is not a Tomb Raider game. It's something quite different. For a start, it's going to be a downloadable title, rather than a retail release -- but that's not the only thing that's unique about it. While it uses the same graphics engine and core technology as Crystal Dynamics' recent trilogy of Tomb Raider titles, the fundamental gameplay has more in common with an action RPG like Dungeon Siege, or even (brace yourself) Diablo II than it does with Tomb Raider: Underworld.
