    This Prince takes platforming to new levels of brilliance

    I've never been into PoP of the franchise, the early originals passed me by and when I was introduced to 3D PoP games with "The Sands Of Time" series, the frustrating difficulty levels made me feel like the game had aban... Read Full Review

    Prince of Persia features an engrossing story and gorgeous visuals but the platforming is, at times, too simple.

    This is one of the few remaining 2008 games I had left and what a great one it is! Prince of Persia has been a staple of Ubisoft with the Sands of Time trilogy (which I never played) but they decided to reboot the franch... Read Full Review

    Prince Of Persia. I heard the name of the game from one of my friends. So I bought it and played the game. And what I found was, the game was quite entertaining one as good as the previous but lacked something in the gam... Read Full Review

    at first i liked the game the story was immersing and the graphics are interesting. but after an hour or so it gets extremely boring and repetitive and the combat system is basically broken. i liked the hack-n-slash comb... Read Full Review

    The best Prince of Persia game made so far, really enjoyed this one. I loved it!

    Wonderful game from start to finish. love the previous titles in the series, but this one set's the bar even higher. Its very different from them, but its just so much better in near every aspect. The best thing I can th... Read Full Review

    Whats didnt they do wrong in this one?

    You do not expect a PoP game to be only running around. The combos are fun but you rarely ever finish them because if u reach the edge of the platform you are fighting on you immediately stab and kill the enemy. Seriousl... Read Full Review

    It will always be a debatable issue just how good this game is.

    Now,as you would have noticed,this Prince Of Persia title takes a break from the regular story line,and branches out into a brand new narration of a brand new story,often leaning on the original. The very first thing I ... Read Full Review

    It's beautifully made, but that's all.

    At first, it seems to be a great game. The sceneries are beautiful and there's the promise of unlocking new powers as you progress. But in the end, it's just a dumb game of pressing buttons in the correct moment (and you... Read Full Review
