Lara Croft’s latest adventure is surprisingly religious. It’s not just about the good aspects of a communal belief in a higher power. Rise of the Tomb Raider’s main bad guy is a true believer, too.
When we last saw Lara Croft, she was growing out of being a victim. A victim of fate, of other people’s aggression, of her own uninspired previous playable incarnations. She’s still growing, but she’s different now.
