Final Breakdown


The gameplay overall is good and solid, though a little long in the time taken to move from point A to point B. Warning, however: the "copy protection" scheme is more a user annoyance scheme than copy protection.


For the system requirements, the game's very well constructed. 

Sound and music:

The ambient sounds and minimalist soundtrack work very well at enhancing the mood of an old mummy movie in videogame form.

AI and Difficulty:

The game's not that difficult, nor the enemies hard to kill.

Controls and Interface:

If you're at ALL worried about adjusting to the controls, go for the Xbox version. Please.


It's worth looking into. One of those few middle-of-the-road games that doesn't justify a $50 price but can be entertaining as a $30 bargain title.
