Shadow of the Tomb Raider nails the former, with sumptuous South American locations to climb, dive and rappel around, ranging from ancient Inca cities and missionary crypts to modern-day Peruvian jungles and towns. Lara gets caught up in mudslides and earthquakes, scrambles from collapsing buildings and blows up attack helicopters, but instead of hiding behind cover with an assault rifle, more often she crouches unseen in long grass or presses herself against walls, hunting oblivious militiamen in the darkness. Sending a poisoned arrow into the thigh of a guard from the jungle canopy before dropping down into the grass and picking off his panicking companions one by one is more interesting than pointing a pistol at them and pressing a button until they fall down.
She has inner conflicts about her single-minded pursuit of Trinity, the evil organization that killed her father and is set on controlling the world. Somewhere in the Mayan and Peruvian jungles, she discovers who she is, musters the will to survive, and becomes merciless in her pursuit of all enemies. I finished the game and interviewed Rich Briggs, senior brand director of Crystal Dynamics, about what the developers intended to convey in this game, which is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The gameplay was fun and refined though I hated the quick-time events that keep showing you Lara Croft getting hideously impaled when you failed. The writing suggests she gets a boatload of PTSD for her ordeal as she ends up killing hundreds of crazed cult members on the island. But she comes out stronger and more determined.

Frozen Portraits at The Bayon. I have an admission to make: we followed Angelina Jolie to Cambodia. She beat us to Angkor by a dozen years, filming scenes for Lara Croft: Tomb Raider in among the picturesque ruins of the Khmer Empire, and as round the world travelers with a stop in Siem Reap, it was too hard to resist the cheesiness of a little star-stalking during our visit to the ruins.
