Croft is the toughest video game character ever
created, according to a new poll. The Dixons survey
ranked characters to determine the strongest,
most determined and physically fit. Lara beat
Metal Gear Solid hero Solid Snake into second
place, with Duke Nukem in third. She also beat
cult heroes like James Bond and Spiderman.
executive Stuart Carson thinks the launch of Nintendo
GameCube might "soften up" the games industry.
He said: "The heroes in first-person adventure
and shoot 'em up games often face opponents with
superhuman powers, so it's little wonder they're
a tough bunch. However, the face of our heroes
may change with the launch of Nintendo's GameCube.
Nintendo is known for creating fun and colourful
characters, such as Mario and Pokémon, and we
can expect a few new faces with a softer side
from May 3."
