The Mummy Demastered
Top Critic Average
After 2017's "The Mummy" starring Tom Cruise, a game was needed to complete the joy for the fans and WayForward studios surprised them with a 16-bit action game. It's a really exciting experience after all, there are lots of guns to shoot with and lots of different areas to conquer. Although the death mechanism can become boring after a while, but the whole game is a fun journey.

The Mummy Demastered is a retro inspired game good enough to both whet the nostalgic urges of people of a certain age whilst fulfilling the needs of newcomers alike.
The Mummy Demastered hits most of the right notes in bringing back nostalgia-driven 16-bit gameplay and aesthetics. While not without its flaws, anyone looking for something similar to Metroid or Axiom Verge would do well to give this a shot.
A decent blast of fun let down by a slew of frustrating elements
The Mummy Demastered feels less like a movie tie-in and more like a love letter to the metroidvania genre. The art style will appease a retro gamer appetite while it brings some modern elements to keep it fresh and engaging. If you're a fan of games of this ilk, then it is a must-have purchase. If you're not sure what metroidvania is, give it a go anyway. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
Despite some questionable design choices, The Mummy Demastered is a fun game, imbued with good exploration and action moments, in a perfect metroidvania dress.

The Mummy Demastered gives Switch owners a Metroidvania style game, while also delivering an experience that brings in some twists of its own. It has a few small warts that hold it back from the classic status of the video game franchises that inspired it, but the fact that can be said for a licensed game in 2017 is nothing short of remarkable.
At the end of the day, Way Forward took a fairly boring contract deal and put their golden seal on it. This proves that when it comes to using a franchise in bold new ways, Way Forward is ahead of the game.
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.
Audiovisual assets notwithstanding, The Mummy Demastered is an average game.
