    Probably the best version of a classic game. Most of the visuals and sound are taken straight from Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. The controls have also been lifted from Sands of Time, along with mo...

    I played the original Prince of Persia on my Commodore 64. I'll never forget those hours and hours I spent trying to finish the damn game in 60 minutes. I don't think I ever actually did it. But I ...

    Prince of Persia Classic has great updated graphics, compelling puzzles, and plays great; it's only flaw is the combat.

    This game is both fun and challenging. It is also one of the best looking XBL acrcade games yet.

    very fun and challenging game

    Rated on June 14, 2007 by MChammertime05

    This is a fun game and it is also very challenging. Some people didn't want to buy this game because of the 60 min time limit. You will definitely not finish this game in 60 min the first time you pla...
