The Scorpion King: Rise of the Akkadian

Playstation Illustrated
3 June 2004
  • Excerpt: The Scorpion King: Rise of the Akkadian is easy on the eyes. From the opening screen, the menus are done beautifully. The in-game graphics are great to look at as well. The environments are always rendered one room at a time, but each room looks great.

  • Excerpt: Here’s the thing, whenever I receive a videogame based on a movie, I pretty much already know that it isn’t going to live up to its namesake, nevertheless, I always go into games like this with an open-mind. And that was especially the case with The Scorpion King: Rise of the Akkadian.

  • Excerpt: It's been done so many times, and has consistently been executed poorly; movie to videogame conversions. Some of the worst that have gone down in the books include E.T. for the Atari 2600, Blade for the PSX, Street Fighter: The Movie, and that's only naming about a percentile.

Review: "The Scorpion King" (PS2)

6 March 2003
  • Excerpt: Der Film war nicht gerade ein Meilenstein in der Unterhaltungsgeschichte. Das dazugehörige Spiel reiht sich durch dessen Inspiration wunderbar ein. Dadurch ist kein geniales Kampfspiel entstanden, aber dennoch ist es (für Fans des ehemaligen Wrestlers The Rock) durchaus spielenswert.
  • Pros: Nette Filmumsetzung, The Rock, Viele Bonus-Objekte
  • Cons: Technisch nicht top, Teils eintönig
