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 reminded me of the progress of our medium as well as the days when every company was trying to get in on the character platform action. I like to see forgotten games get a second chance, and THQ Nordic seems to be doing the legwork.
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.
Most of the platforming and combat has a “been there, done that” feel to it that felt fresh 14 years ago, but not so much now. I highly recommend this for fans of the original looking to replay it one more time. For gamers unfamiliar with the original – I suggest playing with an open mind and understand that it is an older game and might require a bit more patience than recent platformers.
