>Lawrence of Arabia is enough source in terms of technical feats to create the good movie Mummy '99 was.
You're looking at it retroactively, like they would for some reason use Lawrence of Arabia as an standalone inspiration for a Mummy remake because now It comes to mind due to large scope scenes set in the desert. But it is that way only because they wanted to make it a fun mythology action adventure clearly inspired by Indiana Jones. If somebody didn't have the bright idea to turn it into a "swashbuckling" thrill ride a-la Indy it would have likely been a late '90s horror shitflick set in modern times starring Xzibit.
>but i can't see it being considered good for my own tastes, who are jaded considering i played the first games.
I don't see why playing the games would make the film bad. I'm a big fan of the franchise and I liked it, it's pretty decent regardless of whether you played the games or not.
>Didn't recall those for some reason
It's similar but for some reason not as good. But maybe I'm just projecting the game over it, or maybe my pp is just too fond of the night dress.
>i meant the Legend model which was Xbox 360 but also OG Xbox, which sure enough are much more similar to the PS2 ones
It's the same model, Legend came out on PS2 and everything else under the sun.
