Summary: I almost bought this game during two separate shopping trips, but decided to rent it first. Boy, was I glad I did. THIS GAME [ is bad] I can't believe it's a PS2, it seems more like a Game Boy Color, it's that bad. The voices are bad, the characters lips don't move and that really throws me off and the controls are horrible. The best thing about this game is the graphics on the box. When I returned this to the video store I rented Devil May Cry. Whoa, what a difference.
Summary: Ok, this is the WORST game I've ever played. The ontrols handle like a shopping cart with three wheels missing and the graphics are rather scribbly at times. The story isn't even intruiging, if there even is one hidden in the shadows, and the option that you can be good or bad scarcely helps. Overall, it stinks, so don't buy it, don't play it, or even better, never even think about it again. If you like these kinds of games, try Batman Vengeance or Rayman Revolution.
The Mummy Returns.......With the (Worst) PS2 Game Yet!

Summary: I only rented this game, and I brought it back the same night! I spent six bucks only and feel ripped off! The characters have horrible controls, move clunkily, do not jump, Etc. It feels like you're steering a vehicle, not a character! Granted, as Imhotep, stealing the soul of an enemy is kind of cool at first, but afterwords, watching the same exact animation over and over again is just boring.
Summary: I'd like to point out that on buying this game for my son aged 12 he was very upset that he completed it within 3 hours. I was most shocked that I bought him such a short-lived game. He has asked me to write a review of the Mummy Returns warning other people that there is not a lot of game play elements in this title. I now have taken it back to the store for a replacement game that will keep him more occupied at least for a couple of days.
Summary: This is the dullest PS2 game I have played this year. Its even worst then the first Mummy game for the PS1. It only took me a day to beat this game. Some of the problems this game has is that it does not look like a next generation console game at all. Some of the PS1 games look better than this.
Summary: I got my Playstation 2 for my birthday. With it were a number of classic titles - and - the Mummy Returns. After playing Devil May Cry I knew that this was going to be the best birthday ever. That was until I booted up Mummy Returns. I tried to enjoy it but I found myself going back to DMC. Compared to the other titles, this just looks dated and badly put together. Graphics are bad and the characters only resemble those of the film. Worst PSX2 game... EVER.
Summary: I was looking forward to this game as I enjoyed the film. I have a number of titles on PlayStation 2, yet this has to be the most disapointing. A combination of poor graphics (that wouldn't look out of place on a NES, let alone a 21st Century console) and wooden gameplay make this a sub-standard product indeed. I hope that when the Mummy comes back again, he will find a better product to put his name on.
Summary: I was looking forward to this game lots. Sadly it is really poor. The graphics are very weak, they look like PS-One graphics. The character's are very wooden as they move along. The landscapes are dull & not intresting at all. The gameplay was weak too. Maybe they should have told the development team to wait for the next film instead. Avoid this game, wait for Metal Gear Solid 2. I feel that this is a very poor standard for PS 2.
