Default Underrated Game - Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

I really liked the demo of this game, and I recently bought for the low price of $10 (13 with the delivery and tax). I must say its one of my favorite games right now. It has strong puzzle elements as well as adventure elements. Strongly recomended for that price. You can order it from www.ebgames.com
You can see the reviews of the game at www.gamerankings.com

I was interested in what was thought about this game. I noticed it a while back and never could quite decide whether it was worth a look =- how the game play was etc. But it had an quirky look to it that appealed.

Thanks for the links and the base line opinion. Nice to have a game that is way under the radar brought up.

I've heard it compared to Zelda or BG&E and since you can buy it used for about $7 I'm thinking of picking it up.

If I was you I would buy it for $10 new, you never know who blew their nose with an used copy...

Have you played any of the puzzles invovling the Mummy? Probably the best puzzle elements since the Lost Vikings...but thank god easier. Common guys buy this game...you can do a lot worse for $10, like say, buying 10 copies of BMXXX...

I used to own the Xbox version. It's a great game. The puzzles are awesome.

I picked this game up for cheap when I was in the U.S. but I still haven't bothered to remove the seal and try it. My huge backlog of unplayed and unfinished games haunts me.

Damn I was about to ask you if you sell any games...but then again I saw that you were from Finland. Hmm, since you bought the game in the U.S. that probably means that it was a NTNC (or something) game. I am interested in buying some of your "unopened" games if they are in the American standart.
