  • 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: 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: 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.

  • Cons: Technisch nicht top, Teils eintönig
