I love the "Prince of Persia" franchise and since I noticed the score of this game I decided to give it a go. The graphics is amazing. The prince moves around, jumps or runs the walls in pure harmony with the environment. The novelty was the RPG-like system: you can improve the prince's abilities and powers if you kill many monsters. And you get plenty of it. The story can be summarised in just few words: an evil ancient deity wants to revenge and turns everything into sand and you come to help your brother, Malik. After a while you realise Malik is possessed by this deity and in the end you must kill him in order to free the realm. You're helped by a woman who introduces you to new powers and advised you on the quest. There are some bosses and at times you find it difficult to pass over some obstacles but with the help of your powers( rewind time, solidify water, protective shield or the fire trail) everything turns up to be easy. The final boss is a little challenging, but if you get the hang of it, it'll be beaten easily. The only issue I had was with the voices; I couldn't hear them. Don't believe the low score, the game is awesome.
