Critic Reviews for Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

All this said though there is a decent romp buried (no pun intended) within the confines of this experience. Sure it isn’t going to go down in history as a great platformer, but I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting it.

It puts an interesting game-ified twist on Egyptian mythology and shows how far influence can take a project, as there are multiple prominent moments where the game is clearly trying to emulate the feel and pacing of a Zelda title. But in a time where remasters and remakes are a dime a dozen, THQ Nordic may want to put a little more effort into their IPs next time around.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is a very good game that was overlooked by many the first time it popped up over a decade ago.

Who knows, maybe Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy would have been more attractive in this day and age if it exuded more…Pharoahmones.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy brings forth a gameplay that features combat and puzzle-solving in an Ancient Egypt background and with lots of humor all around, especially from a protagonist who's supposed to be dead. As an example of a good port from a previous generation, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is an enjoyable experience that can easily find its place with nearly everyone.

While its platforming mechanics are still a tad unpredictable at times – and the huge gaps between save points still rankle – Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy's quality nonetheless shines through. Weaving melee combat, environmental puzzles and plenty of platforms with a fun and interesting take on Egyptian mythology, it's an action-platformer that really holds up well, despite the years on its clock. Its camera might still be a bit rubbish, but with a new lick of HD paint, this is a hidden gem that deserves a little time in the limelight.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is still a good action-adventure game, although some of its core elements have not aged well.

If you like early 2000s 3D third person platformers, this is worth a look, but be aware that it isn’t as modern as the current promotional material might make it out to be.
