Gameplay: So in this game your playing this nameless Prince who is just called "Prince" and your identity has been taken by the evil Grand Vizir Jaffar whome you defeated in the original Prince of Persia. Banished from your palace, you must fight to reclaim what is yours and save the Salaultan's lovely daughter. it is strongly similar to the first Prince of Persia. The character explores various deadly areas by running, jumping, crawling, avoiding traps, solving puzzles and drinking magic potions. Though it has more focused in combat then the first one. In the first game enemies would always be fighting alone, but in the second one there will be two or more that you will have to fight and sometimes there will be re-enforcements when you kill one person. Just like the first one there is a live time limit to complete the game and time cannot be regained. Graphics: Even though this is an old game you cannot compare it with games with today's standards because it was a diffrent time back when it came out. Anyways The graphics are a huge improvement for the first one. It's way more colorful and there is more colorful 2-D drawings like a picutre of the prince and the princess.
Sound: Still has good sound, like when you fall and hit the ground for the highplace it really gets to you. Though the sound effects of some of the actions don't sound the way they should sound like when you get hit by a sword, but then again this is from another time and probrably did not have the techology to do somethings. Also the sound track is good though it is limited.
Value: You will find yourself playing this over and over again because the gameplay is just so addictive and something that just motivates you to complete the game over and over again.
So Prince of Persia 2: The Shafow and the Flame is a great PC adventrue game that should not be missed but to bad it's not really known to newer gamers or caual gamers to this era. This is a great game to add to your games collection. I give this game 9.5 out of 10
