    Great graphics and interesting gameplay, December 7, 2003
    This review is from: Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy – Xbox (Video Game)

    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.

    While sound really shouldn’t be a key for a game, it is sadly lacking in this one. The background music and ambient noises are OK, usually very faint. But this game has a ton of dialogue and there is no speaking! That might have been fine back in the days of Final Fantasy 8, but in this day and age it really feels lacking every time an important dialogue is going on and there is just … silence.

    The actual gameplay is very enjoyable. The characters’ movements are smooth and natural, from swinging up a rope to leaping across chasms. Each map has enough area for you to explore and not feel stuck, but it’s not so huge that you get lost. There are good assortments of puzzles and action sequences to keep both your fingers and your brain engaged.

    Sure, a few of the puzzles are a bit hokey – but that’s the case in any game. The save feature isn’t great, but you learn to deal with that. In general it’s a fun game for all ages!

    Good, but needs a little something for flavor., November 25, 2003

    On the good side the game is beautiful and flows smoothly. I’ve only had it a couple of days but the rendering is great I found it quite easly to get lost in the background and colors. The Movent of the characters we just as bewitching. The puzzles are not too chalenging but the keep you interested.

    As for missing ingredient:

    It seriously needs voice overs. The characters act like they’re speaking as the captions are displayed but no sound. It is difficult to become one whith a character who has no voice, even Rayman made noises.

    Secondly why on earth would you have a game that only lets you save on one module. In english you cannot save different parts of the game on seperat memory locations, you select the location at the begining of the game and you are stuck with it.

    Lastly the game give you no clue of where you should be going. This is a plus and a minus. If you like to spend an hour looking for a key and another hour trying to figure out what to do with it great. I you want to find things quickly and get to the action, you’re out of luck. There are no hints on less obvious puzzles. That frustrated me but once I figured out a puzle I was like “Oh” and moved on.

    The game is great for Tomb Raider types you like puzzle solving get thing game (just use the voices in your head, since characterizations are not included) I would give it a 3.5 but Amazon does offer it.

    This is a brilliant little game. Although little-known, any gamer who likes good story and imaginative world-design should pick this up. I love it, my daughter loves it – you will too…
