Not bad, just not for me.

The Good
This is a game based on a movie and as such it benefits from excellent music and a cinematic introduction.

It loaded and played well under Windows XP and gave me no problems at all

The Bad
I played the game on the maximum resolution, 1200x1600x32 and thought the graphics were still too blocky. I know this is an old game, thirteen years old as I write this, but I'm sure that games of this period generally looked smoother.

The keyboard and mouse controls are non-standard. The mouse or arrows can steer and the left button or space bar can be used to strike/fire which is OK, but using Q & E to display weapons felt clumsy.

There were a couple of times when the game's point of view lost the character, this happened mainly when the character was in a corner or close to a wall, and at one point it cost a life because I didn't get to see my attacker.

The Bottom Line
This game is a bit like a Tomb Raider clone with lots of running around, killing bad guys and collecting stuff. The character is a bit blocky for my taste but generally the game plays well and has good music.

Action and adventure game

The Good
A normal and easy one but full of adventure. The weapons scheme is very good. And the enemies are really from the ancient times. It gives an enjoyment as wondering in ruins.

The Bad
There is nothing I dislike about it.

The Bottom Line
Play and enjoy your adventure to ancient period and defeat the mummies. Use your ancient weapons against the ancient enemies. Play the bonus levels to increase your life. So long playing the ancient idols also increases your life. You will really enjoy your adventure in ruins.
