Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy – Review

GameCritics.com
4 August 2004
  • Excerpt: There was a recent news story regarding Sega suing the makers of Simpsons' Road Rage because they felt the game was a direct rip-off of their own Crazy Taxi . While I agree that the Simpsons game is a rip-off of Sega's madcap driving title, I'm not sure there's really enough there to warrant litigation. I mean, the gaming industry has made an art out of taking one successful idea and running it into the ground, with everyone and their brother using it in similar games.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

The Gamers Temple

  • Excerpt: By Gary Kearney It can be a dangerous situation when developers start mixing different gaming styles together. Usually it’s best just to stick with a pure action game and don’t mess around with the adventure part. Or if you’re creating a first-person shooter should you really throw in some puzzles? It’s like having too many cooks in the kitchen.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy became an early favorite among some of the staff here. Although I would love to say it was the tricky level designs and Zelda-like gameplay that drew us in, it was actually the sadistic fun of seeing how much pain we could inflict on the Mummy -- but more on that later. Visually, Sphinx ranks with some of the PS2's heavy hitters. Before playing the game, I took a few minutes to watch the 'Making of...' feature that's included with it.

  • Excerpt: It might be tempting to dismiss Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy as just another platformer, but you'd be missing out it you did. Though there are a few flaws to be found here and there, great characters, varied gameplay, and cool puzzles are just a few of the reasons to give this one a look. Click here for the full review.

  • Excerpt: Formerly known as Sphinx and the Shadow of Set, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy has proven to be better than the demo I played months ago. You play as two characters, Sphinx, an Egyptian demi-god, who is our main hero and where all of the action aspects of the game come into play. His “partnerâ€?, the mummy, better known to many as King Tut, is where you will play a much more adventure role. Mummy is more creative in reaching his goal than Sphinx.

  • Summary: Überraschungshit! Sphinx und die verfluchte Mumie ist ein spassiges, unglaublich gut spielbares und grafisch überzeugendes Action-Adventure. Trotz fehlender Sprachausgabe und kleinerer Mankos konnte mich das Spiel nicht zuletzt wegen den einfallsreichen Rätseln längerfristig an die Konsole fesseln. So kann ich den Titel allen Genre-Fans nur wärmstens ans Herz legen.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

  • Conclusion: Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is een zeer leuk avonturenspel, goed voor zo’n 20 uur spelplezier. Hoewel het spel een langzame starter is, ontpopt het zich later tot een ‘bijna-klassieker’ die helaas niet kan tippen aan titels als Zelda, maar alleen al door de toevoeging van een tweede karakter zeker de moeite waard is.
