    A short but sweet turn-based nod to the original games that ends up celebrating Lara's heritage even better than Rise of The Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration. [Feb 2017, p.97]

    Lara Croft GO is beautiful to look at, has thought-provoking puzzles, and most importantly, is super fun to play.

    Lara Croft GO offers a fun spin on a concept that Square Enix Montréal originally nailed with Hitman. Yet again, it offers a distilled version of what makes Tomb Raider fun and presents a pretty unique and challenging puzzle game.

    A great puzzle game that manages to do well on almost everything but, at the same time, keeps being the same thing that has been on mobile platforms.

    We could not recommend Lara Croft Go enough. Performance issues with the Vita port notwithstanding, this is a near flawless game that exemplifies an attention to detail seldom seen in gaming nowadays. Charming visuals, rewarding and challenging gameplay, and a lot of replayability make this a must have purchase. If you're looking for something that's high quality while also doing something a little different, look no further than Lara Croft Go.

    An excellent distillation of the Lara Croft experience. With some charming puzzles and great use of the environment, this is a great puzzle game. Whilst the VITA version suffers with long losing times, this isn’t an issue on the PS4.

    Like Hitman GO before it, Lara Croft GO is basically the same mobile game, only with a higher price tag and a handful of new content. It’s still a brilliant puzzle, but if you own a smartphone it’s hard to recommend this version.

    Lara Croft Go is a cross between a puzzle game and turn based strategy and for what it is it's close to perfection. The puzzles are reallyLara Croft Go is a cross between a puzzle game and turn based strategy and for what it is it's close to perfection. The puzzles are really well thought out and the difficulty curve is great; It eases you in with very basic puzzles but by the end it will test even puzzle experts. The graphics are a fitting mix of old and new with an angular, isometric style that gives it a retro feel but with modern polish. The music ambient and relaxing.
    It's a bit short and the controls aren't always perfect but they feel like small issues especially when you consider the cheap price tag and the overall quality of the puzzles. The dlc is also worth looking at if you enjoyed the main game.

The puzzles are mostly easy but become challenging towards the last portion of the game. The gameplay was originally suited to Hitman GO and I'm not convinced that it was meant for Tomb Raider as well. But an impressive effort has gone into making a Tomb Raider-themed "GO" game. Fans should be pleased. Expand

    Simple and straight foreward game but there is no chapter select which is annoying in a game where you have to look for collectables.
