The Mummy Returns to PS2

Due in November, with two powerful globe-trotting campaigns

One of this summer's most entertaining action movies is coming to PlayStation 2 courtesy of Vivendi Universal Interactive. The Mummy Returns will follow the plot of the film closely, action/exploration sections fought either from the perspective of hero Rick O'Connell (played by Brendan Fraser, whose image has been captured perfectly for the game), or his nemesis Imhotep, the Mummy from the first film back to cause mischief on a whole new scale this time around. As Rick, players have to rescue his son Alex and wife Evy from Imhotep and defeat the evil Scorpion King (aka The Rock) using all manner of present day and mythical Egyptian weaponry, while as Imhotep, players must resurrect the Scorpion King so that the dark sorceror can use his armies to take over the world. Pleasant stuff. Levels featured in the game include London, Cairo and Hamunaptara as per the film, and all manner of beasties that came to life in the film will find themselves embodied once again for the game. The Mummy Returns is due out in November. Related Feature - The Mummy Returns screenshots
