Rebellion’s game does stand out, however, in part through its setting: a pulpy action adventure set in the unearthed tombs of 1930s Egypt. It also adds to the proven formula a number of puzzling minigames and a full story campaign – which starts with an ancient evil unleashed by a bumbling amateur archaeologist, naturally. How gloriously kitsch. read more
