With its modest hardware requirements, familiar 'meat-and-potatoes' gameplay, and puzzles of moderate difficulty, "Mummy" may well appeal to novice gamers. But if you are in the market for something spicier, more exotic, and, most importantly, innovative, leave the ancient tombs undisturbed; you'll find there little more than old wine in old bottles and an old adventure game formula mummified.
This is not a bad game but far from one of the greats. I would not wholeheartedly either recommend for or against it. However, I found it well worth the $5 I spent on it and would recommend it for that reason alone. The game was put together very professionally, but the gameplay itself stunk. I think this is a classic case of where too much time and money was spent on the graphics and actors, which were first-rate, and not enough time spent on the actual game—the designers copped out on too many puzzles by trotting out the ol' tried-and-trues, and there was not enough, or rather no, originality.
