When an ancient evil threatens to rise and take over the world - and if the Ghostbusters, Men in Black, and the US Armed Forces aren't available, what do you do?
You call in the O'Connells, the same family who took out the mummy in the first two installments of The Mummy movie franchise.
In this 3D platformer, you play as either Rick or Alex O'Connell. Each Act, you go from start to finish, beat up bad guys, solve puzzles and crawl along ledges. Each has more problems then the army of undead clay things.
When you shoot at an enemy, you can lock on to him or her, but you can't jump, and the dodge function requires a lot of space; you don't just sidestep the attack, you leap several feet in one direction.
The camera also gets in the way of combat - off screen enemies are hard to find and harder to dodge.
The puzzles are inventive, but the use of the Wiimote is clunky and haphazard. Turning a lever or lifting a pole became much tougher than it should be.
The ledge climbing is the worst of the bunch; it's hard to tell which ledges you can use and it's far too easy to fall off ledges to your character's death.
Despite that, the graphics are good (the cut scenes are great to look at), and there's a lot of fun of shooting and beating up the bad guys If only the camera and jumping didn't make this game frustrating.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is a good rent, but I wouldn't buy it for $50.
