I really enjoy Underworld, it's different to the other "classic" TR games. My only real complaint is that it's too short and in many places, too easy.

In the Mediterranean area, Niflheim is probably my favourite level albeit rather easy and too short.

Thailand scenery is beautiful and Bhogavati is a decent level with the Shiva puzzle a real highlight.

Croft Manor. Only one objective - find the gauntlet. Whilst the architecture and modeling of the underground caverns was great, it's pretty boring. The highlight for me is the death of a certain annoying bit player.

Mexico. Xibalba is the highlight for me in this area. I like the calendar puzzle and the time restriction to access the entrance of Xibalba proper. The Midguard Serpent is a good level and probably a close second. Land of the Dead felt a bit disappointing following on from the previous two levels.

I really like the Jan Mayan Island section and am really disappointed that there are only two levels. Valhalla is a decent level but rather short, it could have been so much more.

Rituals Old. Way too short and too easy to complete, it's more like a cutscene.

Arctic Sea. I like the puzzle to get into Helheim and the level itself is OK but yet again, it's too short and easy. Yggdrasil is purely "get from here to there" and way too simple. I like the final level from an ideas point of view but it's too easy to do what you have to do.

To each their own, imo the game was okay, it could have used some improvement.

Okay but same tbh.
The opening area is really pretty, and that's all it has going for it imo.
