My favorite screens from Lara Croft Go

Lara Croft Go is a nice combination of Hitman Go and Monument Valley, but lacks what made those games special. The levels in Hitman Go felt like real places, and there was ample variety. By comparison, with only a few short exceptions, the Lara Croft Go locations are all extremely similar and dull, and feel like video game puzzle screens rather than a mysterious tomb. And unlike Monument Valley, with its subtle narrative, this game has no story at all.

Definitely worth playing, but it's mostly just a great foundation to build a far superior sequel.
