Product Description

Amazon.com

The first disappointment registered with this based-on-the-film game is that it comes with a promotional trailer for the film's sequel, The Mummy II. From there, one goes into a full-motion video scene directly ported from the movie's footage, which is a cheap ploy to try engaging players in the game's action. The game's poorly defined actors look like mutant clones next to their film-based originators.

For those who are unfamiliar with the film, players take on the persona of Rick O'Connell, itinerant foreign legionnaire who travels to Hamanaptra with gorgeous Egyptologist Evelyn Carnahan and her sincere but greedy brother, Jonathan; much action ensues. Where The Mummy fails is that it really doesn't extend anything to new heights, and occasionally descends below acceptable levels. Everything in it you've seen dressed up in some other video game.

There are pits, ledges, menacing traps, and such, but the game doesn't ever challenge the player too much. Ammo and power-ups are always pretty handy, though they're sometimes stashed in dumb places. If you conserve your ammo, you can usually get out of most tight spots the first time through. One reason for The Mummy's lack of challenge is the auto-aiming system that reduces common aim-and-shoot action to just shoot.

The Mummy aspires to Tomb Raider status, but does so with one arm and one leg tied behind its back. If channeled exploration, limited puzzle-solving, carnivorous beetles (again!), and scads and scads of shooting float your boat, then climb in. --Todd Mowatt

Pros:

  • Fast-paced action with plenty to do and shoot
Cons:
  • Poorly designed character models
  • Uninspired level designs

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't play a lot of video games; we bought a Game Cube last year and we have a few games, then we "inherited" my nephew's PS1game and "The Mummy" along with it. My nephew, like most teens, is very prolific at these games, but he got stuck on the 3rd level(caverns of the Nile) when he could'nt make it down the river on the log. I'm in my late 40's with a degree in US History, so I'm drawn to anything even remotely historical. I LOVE this game! Yes, some of the graphics are a little outdated, but games have come a long way on the past 5 years. The weapons,fights, and various settings are very well done, and the music and the many booby traps keep you on the edge of your seat.I have made it through all 16 levels, in just a few months; pretty good for someone with NO game experience at all. If I had more time, I would play it 2 hours a day, every day- but I don't. And for those "reviewers" who complained about it being unrealistic ("I'm sure Egyptologists are killing everyone"), well HELLO! This, like 99% of video games is FICTION! Anyway,if you want a game with a simple premise, lots of action and progressively harder challenges, give "The Mummy" a try. My only regret is that I won't get a chance to try "The Mummy Returns", as it is a PS2 game. If I had a chance to purchase a less-used copy of "The Mummy" I would, as mine is starting to wear out!PS. The 4 or 5 chase scenerios and the 2 trips downriver on logs are an absolute challenge, and a BLAST!

3.0 out of 5 stars This mummies okay with it. July 14, 2001
My 9 year old son and husband enjoy this game. Graphics are not very good.We don't think they sound like the real characters either but we find it humorous. We all like the music. You don't have a choice of characters to play with. The game is not real challenging.We liked both movies so they just have fun with the combination of music and levels they are playing on along with some imagination. We rented this game and are now purchasing it. We can think of better ways to improve the game but for now they are just having fun with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars THE MUMMY February 3, 2002
By A Customer
FIRST OFF, THE GAME IS CHALLENGING AND REQUIRES SOME HAND EYE COORDINATION. YOU WILL NEED SOME CHEAT CODES IN THE END UNLESS YOU PLAYED THE GAME OVER 200 TIMES. I HAD TO REPEAT SOME LEVELS BECAUSE THEY WERE TOUGH BUT EVENTUALLY YOU GET THE HANG OF IT. EVERY GAME HAS A SEQUENCE TO IT AND ONCE YOU FIGURE THE PATTERN YOU WIN ALMOST ALL THE TIME. AS FOR GRAPHICS, I DONT KNOW WHY PEOPLE EVEN BOTHER DISCUSSING GRAPHICS BECAUSE OF COURSE THE HEADS WILL BE SQUARE AND THE SCENERY WILL NOT BE AS DYNAMIC , BECAUSE THESE PLATFORMS DATE BACK A FEW YEARS AGO. SO THE GRAPHICS IN TODAYS PLATFORMS SUCH AS PS2/DREAMCAST OR NOW XBOX ARE LIFELIKE. IF YOU WANT GREAT GRAPHICS UPGRADE TO A MORE NEWER PLATFORM SUCH AS DREAMCAST OR XBOX AND TOSS THE OLD TECHNOLOGY OUT. REMEMBER THE OLD SAYING, AS SOON AS YOU BUY YOUR COMPUTER ITS ALREADY OUTDATED. COMPARE THE SONY GRAPHICS TO THE OLD SEGAS OR NINTENDO. BUT NO 360 DEGREE REVOS IN THOSE OLD GAMES HEY! HARD TO FIND THE ONES THAT DID.

1.0 out of 5 stars ................... December 30, 2001
both of the movies were great, but this game is pathetic! i had a sleepover with my friends and my mom went out and rented 2 games we wanted ready to rumble boxing and some other game but they didn't have it so she got the mummy. so i was thinking cool maybe it will be as good as the movie. i was wrong after the first 5 minutes or so me and my friends were both bored and frustrated. DONT GET IT DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
