The Scorpion King: Rise of the Akkadian is a Bronze age themed 3D action-adventure game that was released alongside the The Scorpion King movie.
The game features an original storyline that precedes the movie. You play as the future Scorpion King Mathayus who is an Akkadian by birth, a tribe famous for their assassination skills. Magus, a dark lord is planning to resurrect his dark master. Mathayus is sent on a simple assassination task but it soon turns out there is more going on than meets the eye. He embarks on a journey to stop Magus which leads him to ancient Egypt, Crete, the underworld and Babylon.
As the story progresses you fight a variety of enemies including men, beast and mythological creatures. You fight the enemies hand to hand or with up to eight weapons (swords, staffs, gloves) in a variety of environments. Power-ups for strength and endurance can be found in cracks in the floor or walls and concept art can be unlocked by collecting rubies scattered around the levels. Dwayne Johnson who plays Mathayus in the movie voices his character in the game.
