Excerpt: For those of you who saw the movie, you'd know that The Mummy Returns had some incredible special effects. It would have been awesome to see similar effects in the game, but instead the game has your basic layout of mazes and standard texture mapping. Everything in the graphical department looks excellent, however, but could have been a bit more original.
Excerpt: The Mummy Returns follows a long line of videogames based on movies. While the history of these games has been littered with some real bad games ( Crow: City of Angels , Batman & Robin ), I still hoped that this game would prove me wrong. For those who don't know, the movie details the adventures of Rick and Evy O'Connell as the evil Imhotep is raised once again from the dead and kidnaps their son so he can defeat the Scorpion King and take command of Anubis' Army.
Pros: Two storylines to play, Simple controls with HUD aid, You get to suck souls as Imhotep
Cons: Graphically underdeveloped, Too short, Too easy, The camera is definently one of your greatest challenges
Excerpt: These days it seems like just about every blockbuster movie has a game to accompany it. As is the case with many movies that become games, the story closely follows that of the film in an attempt to re-create the experience on the small screen. In fact, it is almost a given that these games play in such a way that they appeal to the mass market--playable by young and old gamers alike.
Excerpt: You can be good... or evil. Those are the choices that you are offered as you start the title, The Mummy Returns by Universal Interactive. It is nice that they offer us the choice, but it would have been more beneficial if they would have taken the option themselves. Evil is the only way this game can be described. Universal Interactive fell into the trap of releasing a game way too quickly to coincide with the video release.
Conclusion: Mumien Återkomsten är ett stycke skräp. Så snart jag sagt det och så snart du förstått att ett inköp vore dummare än att dra ned byxorna i -44° har vi kommit en bra bit på väg. För det är ändå recensentens roll, mitt uppdrag... tror jag. Jag ska prisa kvalitet eller varna för onödigheter, rekommendera eller avskräcka genom oändliga klagomål.
