Take this game for what it is, something fun to do for a few hours, and you'll be amazed with it. I was very skeptical of this game but decided to give it a try because I liked the movie so much. This game has no defining characteristic but it has elements from fighting games, shooters, and Tomb Raider, and yes, light-gun. The motion controls in this game doesn't the fast-paced action that will have you hooked.
That being said, this game won't have you hooked for very long. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is very short with only 7 levels. Those seven feature almost all of the action scenes from the movie. Speaking of which, definitely watch the movie first because otherwise the storyline will be very sketchy. The cutscenes basically provide a summary of the movie. The sidequests are nothing that will challenge you. The game itself is very easy but parts of the last couple of levels will challenge you.
Keep in mind that this is a game with a diverse range of aspects and you will have a lot of fun.
This is one of the best shooters for the Wii that I've played so far. PERFECTION...Tomb Raider should take some hints from this game. I didn't think this game was gonna be that good. It blew me out of the water. DEFINET PURCHASE! MUY AMOR!
