  1. Even though this game this game can be beaten in a short time period, do not let this stop you from purchasing the game. It has well designed levels, tight controls, and a great theme to play.

    Fans of the film, disciples of The Rock, and old-timers who enjoy a good 2D action / platformer should all investigate The Scorpion King.
  3. 80
    The game's slow progression of introducing game ideas as well as a good variety of enemies keeps things interesting in The Scorpion King.
  4. 75
    Our primary gripe against the game, however, is the length: veteran gamers will be able to beat it in a matter of hours. [June 2002, p.88]
  5. Royally difficult. [Apr 2002, p.152]
  6. The levels have too few checkpoints - die mid-way through, and you'll usually go all the way bck to the beginning. [Winter 2002, p.46]
  7. Doomed to be as bland as the Rock's acting. [June 2002, p.87]
