  • Excerpt: The Wargamer is pleased to present Ubisoft with this Award for Excellence for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.  Prince of Persia creates a masterpiece in action adventure games, all the while acknowledging the nostalgic history of the original games.I have a confession to make. I haven't been playing computer games on a PC for very long. Actually, I've only been playing them for about 5 years (gasp!). Before 1998, I had never been able to afford an IBM-based PC.

  • Excerpt: Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Or in this case, Prince of Persia or ICO ? Looking at the question from a purely objective standpoint, Jordan Mechner's original take on the Prince clearly came first, but the matter isn't as simple as that. Released in an earlier era of gaming, the first Prince of Persia it was hailed at the time for its smooth animation and innovative play.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Amazing controls, realistic, vibrant and super impressive graphics, ambient sound as well as some thrilling music, combined with innovative ideas and innovative puzzle, time-orientated gameplay. You can unlock both POP 1 and 2! This game is a gem by any measure. UbiSoft has done well with this one and we hope that a sequel is just as rich if one gets made.

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Review

8 December 2003
  • Excerpt: Jordan Mechner's classic action-adventure game Prince of Persia was a resounding success and managed to be ported to all kinds of computers and consoles back in the late 80's and early 90's. Its unique visuals, moody music, and non-standard gameplay hooked players quickly, and the excellent animation looked more lifelike than almost any game at the time.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

  • Conclusion: Still, the game is, at its core, a Prince of Persia sequel - and if you're at all familiar with the original series, you know what that means - frustration, fencing, frustration, jumping puzzles, frustration, and lots of fun. But don't be discouraged. If you can get past the shoddy camera controls and precision jumping techniques, you'll be rewarded with a game that makes you feel that a man really can walk on walls (although I feel I may need to warn some of our readers...
  • Pros: Fantastic atmosphere, addictive gameplay, fluid animations, great environmental sound effects, worthy successor to the Prince's throne;
  • Cons: Can get frustrating at later stages, camera controls are difficult to pinpoint, game has an overall console feel.
