This game had a very cool concept and integrated some gameplay components nicely: like the combat, which was really exceptional, and the acrobatic manuevers performed by the prince in his quest. Unfortuantely there was a lot more bad than good as far as the total product. The prince was petty and arrogant, and at sometimes annoying. The game really started to drag through the middle portion of the game which seemed to last an eternity with recycled puzzle solving and enemies. You can only cut a skull-cronies head off some many times before the effect goes dull. I would not recomend buying this game because though it may look cool, looks can be highly decieving and this is a perfect example.
