The Mummy Demastered
Top Critic Average
The Mummy Demastered has small issues that are appropriate for the era it recalls, but they are quickly overshadowed by the excellent gameplay and feel of exploration and discovery amid blasting your way from room to room. The Mummy Demastered is wonderfully executed and full of surprises. WayForward didn't just make " another one of those". There are real and meaningful changes to the formula you wouldn't expect, and flipping them on their head is well worth the price of admission.
WayForward once again showed how to do a platformer, despite the fact that the game was created by movie universe, the developers tell their story of what is happening, The Mummy Demastered does not suffer from the syndrome game adaptation, which undoubtedly is a huge plus for fans as a great game, and for fans of movie universe Mummy.

After pushing through the first two hours of few interesting upgrades or weapons, The Mummy Demastered becomes an above-average title that tickles the fancy of those missing classic Metroid gameplay. It's not perfect, but certainly enough to whet the appetite of metroidvania fans.
It looks great, it plays great and it comes with that one ingredient that always makes for a decent experience – an addictively teasing quality.
A solid metroidvania game. The game’s visual design and soundtrack are fantastic and the enemy variety is large enough to not make the experience feel repetitive.
This is a fantastic Metroid-clone. It's well worth your time, it's polished, fun, has fantastic production values and a killer ost. There's very few bad things to say about it, and the only real detrimental one I'd say is that I didn't know about it beforehand.
With The Mummy Demastered, WayForward offers a compelling and enjoyable Metroidvania that is full of secrets and incentive for exploration. If some mechanics of the gameplay deserved to be modernized like the aiming, The Mummy Demastered is a clear home of the 16-bit era Metroidvanias, and a great pick for your Nintendo Switch (or other platforms).
Audiovisual assets notwithstanding, The Mummy Demastered is an average game.
