Who doesn't have dreams of Brendan Fraser looking all cool as the swarthy hero Rick O'Connell? Honestly, The Mummy
movies are pretty fun, and the upcoming movie The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
should be equally righteous. Since the movie will be tops, there's no reason the associated game of the same name won't be just as good, right?
Well, swashbuckling journeys
have a certain special place in the DS library, but we're not sure if TM:TOFTDE
will be quite the same. It's an action-adventure
spanning many locations around the world, culminating in a battle with a DS-ified Jet Li -- after all, he's the bad guy in the movies. Provided the control is smooth and combat responsive (not unlike the reasonably okay Pirates of the Caribbean
game), we might just have an epic journey worthy of taking along on another epic journey of bus and train-like proportions.
