The Mummy

This game is based on the movie of the same name and follows the story of an Egyptian Emperor who betrayed his master ashe was sentenced to mummification in 1290BC.His soul is reawakened by some archaeologists and wreaks havoc upon the land.Taking a third-person perspective, the player guides Rick O'Connor--the hero of the movie--through pyramids and mazes,fighting various villains, living skeletons and Scarab beetles while collecting treasure and solving puzzles along the way.The graphics are excellent, with cut sequences placed between each level to reveal more of the game's plot.The music is directly taken from the score of the film, which adds to the tension and excitement.To help the uninitiated of the gaming world dialogue boxes appear teaching you how to control O'Connor and these also actas a way to point out switches, levers and later on actually help to solve some of the more difficult puzzles.The playing arenas are vast, all with source lighting so as not to reveal too much to the player.With eight levels and 78 hidden bonus features, this game certainly is value for money.The Mummy, like its celluloid brother, is action-packed and fun to play.Fans of the Tomb Raider series, looking for something without Lara, need look no further.
