Summary: Game is similar to zelda but different in many good ways. this game you can trap monsters and use them as weapons or you can donate them to the museum. you switch between mummy and sphinx character when the story requires it. there is no guessing there. the sphinx character is more of a warrior type with a sword and shield whereas the mummy just runs and jumps and uses special abilities unique to that of a dead person.
Summary: First off, AMAZING game. It has both the action and puzzle solving of Legend of Zelda (though a bit more puzzles than LoZ), but with, in my opinion, a cooler setting. It is a good game for sure. Some parts will have you confused. You can complete the quest in about 7-8 hours if you just stick with the story and don't play super-seriously, but it's hard not to get sidetracked, such as the fact you have an empty museum to fill with creatures, minigames, and more.
Summary: This is simply one of the greatest games of all time. In every area - be it gameplay, artwork, music, characters, storyline, sound effects or animation - it shines, thereby constituting a splendid tribute to the grand civilization of Ancient Egypt. Indeed, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy deserves to be held up as a textbook example of how to create a videogame.
Summary: Top game. Must be one of the best games i've played ever. Maybe eventopping the classic Banjo-Kazooie games but i doubt that. The graphics are great as they are. no need for life like graphics here.The puzzles are so good, it can take you hours of exciting gameplay toconquer them all. It doesnt get boring i can say though. I dont like games which can take a day to complete, but this is taking meages! it has a unique storyline.
Summary: To sum this game up in 1 word it would be brilliant, but brilliant doesn't cover it fully. This game from the moment you start to play does not stop the ongoing mind numbing puzzles that are either easy for the elite puzzle solvers, or very hard for those who don't think exactly the same way. But this game is not just about puzzles, this is also about action and advenure.
