Summary: Best graphics of any game out there. Smooth gameplay. Easy to control characters. As with any great game you always feel like it was short, you just want it to continue. Some tough puzzles to solve. Several optional skill challenges that are difficult but not impossible. Great storyline. Replay potential. This game will leave you wanting more.
Summary: this game has amazing graphics and a good story line. it is not too hard but not to easy and keeps your mind challenged throughout. the only problem i had with sphinx and the cursed mummy is that there is no voice overs and you have to read every thing. overall its a solid action adventure game took me about 16 hours not including attempts that i never saved.

Summary: In this puzzle-adventure set in an Egypt-like location, you switch between two characters. One is Sphinx, a tail-toting teenage guy, and the other is a mummy. The graphics in the game are great.Your tail swishes from side to side, the wooden bridges sag beneath your weight, your shadows move along with you. It has a cartoony feel to it, which is fine for its style. The smoke and fire aren't very well done, but those are always tricky.
Summary: First the bad: no voice acting although all the full speech animations are clearly present, probably a late cost cutting exercise. A bit of slowdown in areas with lots of animated elements and the occasional frame rate 'hiccup' when certain monsters appear. Not much replay value either unless you're a completist and want to capture all 35 monster types. Apart from these things I can't think of anything really bad to say about Sphinx And The Cursed Mummy.
Summary: I was in two minds whether to buy this game. I played the demo and loved the characters but the start seemed too simple and there was no voice acting. In the end though, because I was short of something to play, I baught it. I'm so, so pleased I did. It is a quality game with amazing visuals and animations. Once you are past the slow start, the game gets upto full speed and from then on it is fun and engaging all the way.
Summary: Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is a fantastic game that offers dual play modes, challenging puzzles, a progressive character development system, and balanced gameplay that is great for gamers of all skills and ages. There are some not-so-subtle nods toward the Zelda franchise and their game design, but Sphinx manages to create its own unique genre niche with a style and class all its own. I highly recommend it to everyone who is remotely interested.
Excerpt: Prendete un'ambientazione da sempre affascinante e misteriosa come l'antico Egitto, aggiungete un piccolo accenno di mitologia, inseriteci non uno ma ben due personaggi principali e condite il tutto con una impostazione Arcade/Platform/Risoluzione enigmi. Ecco gli ingredienti che riusciranno a creare un micidiale cocktail capace di farvi divertire per ore ed ore dimenticandovi di tutto il resto.
