  1. A pleasant surprise that is faithful to the movie without compromising the game.
  2. By far the best video game based on The Mummy franchise, but it still isn’t great.
  3. 62
    For this grizzled old veteran of the action game realm, the Point of View developed movie piece leaves a lot to be desired.
  4. 50
    You’ll often find the interface working against you.
  5. Proves once again that the name of a popular movie and even the likeness and voice talent of its star aren't nearly enough to make an otherwise bland and uninteresting game seem enjoyable.
  6. 40
    In terms of visual presentation the game is a total letdown, with flawed 3D graphics that even at their best are not all that striking or impressive.
  7. SK’s controls are quite a bit choppy and jumpy; the game is so far from responsive it should be a crime.

    This is absolutely one of the crappiest games that i have ever played and anybody that likes it just because of the Rock should be shot and then dragged through a field of goatheads. Collapse
