Even though there was a lot of criticism concerning the physique of Lara Croft, this favorite heroine has been so immensely popular that she is a true star of the gaming scene, one that could even rival Mario for the title of the most iconic gaming character (judged by the sheer number of titles for various platforms that both have).
The occasional dud will happen here and there (Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness comes to mind), but last year’s Rise of the Tomb Raider gained excellent reviews due to the fact that it successfully updated the character, while still fully utilizing the power of next-gen consoles, and it ensured a definite place in the gaming hall of fame to Lara Croft.
The busty heroine entertained many gamers even away from the consoles, with the mobile running game Lara Croft: Relic Run having a lot of success. There’s another spin-off in the Tomb Raider slot game at the Lucky Nugget Casino site, where you can find more than generous jackpots amidst the well-known Tomb Raider motifs.
All in all, the year 2016 is looking good for all Tomb Raider fans, when the 20-year anniversary book recounting the impressive legacy of Lara Croft is released, we’ll be able to take a look at what Tomb Raider meant for the world of games.
And we’ll be seeing more of Lara Croft, not only in games, as there is going to be a Tomb Raider reboot, where Alicia Vikander will play the part of the iconic games star.
