Do you remember one of this summer's greatest blockbusters, The Mummy
? It was to be part of the MCU — the Monster Cinematic Universe. You know, the one that Dracula Untold
was supposed to begin until it didn't do so well, then The Mummy
was supposed to begin? Well, if somehow you've been living under a rock and didn't see the film, I have good news for you. The Mummy Demastered
is much better than the movie on which it is "based."
It's actually completely different. It's a Metroidvania title and it doesn't star Tom Cruise. Instead it mixes roguelite elements in by adding permadeath into the mix. On top of some quality shooting gunplay and a dash of exploration, what's not to love? Dean
lets us know as he gives us his first impression of the game.
