Gameplay (Benelux) (Dec, 1996)
Ikzelf heb Mummy op drie dagen voltooid. Koop dit spel dus niet als je een echte hersenkraker zoekt. Verder is er op Mummy weinig aan te merken. Het is goed uitgewerkt zonder een echte hoogvlieger te zijn.

Just when you think you've seen everything in graphic adventures, Mummy shows it to you once again.
MUMMY: TOMB OF THE PHARAOH is an entertaining story with well-acted movie sequences and good graphics, sound effects and music. The puzzles are sometimes challenging (or obscure, depending on your point of view), but are appropriate to the story and its setting. It's not a groundbreaking title, but MUMMY should provide gamers with a pleasant sojourn into the mysteries of ancient Egypt.
GameSpot (Sep 26, 1996)
The overall result is merely an okay-looking, reasonably straightfaced, wonkily-balanced game experience not quite challenging enough for the long-time adventurer and not quite guiding enough for the newbie. It's a shame because the Mummy is, in many ways, a much more engaging character than Frankenstein, with the potential for a deeper backstory and more mythical involvement. If you enjoyed and were not overly daunted by Frankenstein, Mummy will be more like a light snack with occasional pits you need to spit out or swallow with some resignation. Interplay hasn't strolled down the sidewalk with this much of dog in some time, but it's weirdly reassuring to know that nobody's perfect.
Die atmosphärischen Stärken des Vorgängers Frankenstein wurden hier arg verwässert. Die Szenen mit den einkopierten Schauspielern wirken vor den starren Bildhintergründen irgendwie aufgesetzt. Die Rätsel sind nicht sonderlich schwierig und manchmal unlogisch. Das Geklicke von Bild zu Bild wird bald langweilig. Es ist einfach zu wenig Bewegung in Story und Optik. Bei allem Respekt ist mir diese Mumie eine allzu tote Angelegenheit.
