$20 Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy (Xbox)

ebgames.com has Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy with a free t-shirt for $19.99 plus free shipping. It got a lot of good notice on many end-of-year awards sites, so I thought I would pick it up and pass along the deal info.

It's a very fun game, it took me I think 19 hours to finish. Similar to Zelda somewhat. It's not perfect but no game ever is. The only complaints I really have is that 1. No voice acting which is disappointing because the game has great facial animations and 2. The game is to easy, not as easy as Wind Waker but close.

Just an FYI, it appears the Sphinx game is also the $19.99 price at EB and Gamestop B&M stores also. I purchased my copy at Gamestop last night. I asked them about the T-shirt, and they replied that they had just received the T-shirts so I got one of those too. The clerk thought it was weird that they had just received the t-shirts for a game that has been out for awhile. The EB store didn't have the T-shirts, but they had the game priced at $19.99. This is probably one of those YMMV deals.

Thanks for posting this deal!!

Thanks for posting the deal. I purchased Sphinx from EBgames a few weeks ago. I called EB today, and they gave me credit.

THANKS!!!

Our EB store got the t-shirts for pre-orders. They were very cool looking (the entire shirt was a print of mummy tape)

I'm surprised that it took that many posts before that was mentioned. I was about ready to

I need to wait longer on new releases for them to drop in price like this. I was lucky to not pay full price for this one, but I would feel like a sucker if I paid $50 for a game to just drop to $20 in less than 6 months. (Which by the way has happened to me!)

Yeah I really can't bring myself to pay 50 for a game these days especially when they usually drop to 30 at least within a few months. Even for games I really wanna play and feel I should support so they will make more (Prince of Persia) 50 just seems to much these days. Some games I never would have bought turned out to be some of my favorites (Beyond Good and Evil), and I only picked them up cause they dropped to a good price.

Back on topic though, I may pick this up when I have more cash flow(saving for a trip to Europe), with the GGC at Best Buy. I enjoy platformers and this got decent reviews.

Just picked up this game (it finally came back in stock at my local BB). What a friggin' beautiful game. It really looks amazing. Who was the dumb-ass who thought it would be a good idea to have no voice acting though? That is so N64. I didn't think it was going to be such a big deal, but it really takes you out of the experience to see characters miming while you read their subtitles. I guess someone in development was too lazy to cast for some out-of-work actors and book a recording studio for a half-day. Very, very lame.

Yep, that's pretty much the only thing I disliked about the game, well besides the easy difficulty. Still a fun game though.
