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.
