User Review

Matt B., Newegg

  • Summary: I think this is a decent game. Hesitant to give 5 eggs since I found the previous titles (Sands of Time, Warrior Within, The Two Thrones) a bit more enjoyable, but this one is still fun.
  • Pros: Fun, decent graphics. Seems you can't really die. Good ole Prince of Persia action/adventure/puzzles.
  • Cons: Character graphics are a bit cartoonish. Getting the "Light Seeds" after completing each area feels a bit too time consuming.

great game! worth the value

Stephen L., Newegg

  • Summary: the graphics remind me of streetfighter4... my geforce 8600GT runs the game in medium settings... i bought it for $6.48 shipped!
  • Pros: i havent played through the entire game but so far its pretty fun. the only prince of persia game i've ever played before this was the original on nintendo. the fighting system and movement is very reminiscient of the original. also, the graphics are very nice (and demanding).
  • Cons: the game does not support my saitek p2600 controller. it seems to ONLY support Xbox-PC controllers as indicated on its option screen. this is one of those rare games on PC that actually feel better with controller than keyboard/mouse.

Great Game for the Price

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: At the current price, it is a no brainer. I paid two bucks more for it, it is still was not a bad deal. I am giving this 5 stars because it offers great value for the price. I would probably have given it 3 stars if I had to pay the release price for it.
  • Pros: Beautiful world. Interesting jumping puzzles. Not too hard. You can develop the motor skills necessary for game completion fairly quickly.
  • Cons: The conversation between the hero and the princess can be a little long and annoying. The ending is sorta suck.

Ok game but may not be worth your time

  • Summary: While I did have fun it isn't much of a game. At this low price you may as well get it though.
  • Pros: -Cheap price on Newegg -Nice graphcis -Easy difficulty
  • Cons: -Laughable dialog -Story doesn't make much sense and one idea is stretched across the entire game -Ending didn't make sense -Boss fights while not difficult were tedious

Worth the admission price

CAROLYN B., Newegg
16 December 2009
  • Summary: Somewhat repetitive, only basic interaction with one character. Worth the sale price but not worth whatever it sold for at release.
  • Pros: No install key, and DVD is not needed in drive to play. Graphics are good. Cheap when on sale.
  • Cons: Script doesn't fit with the environment the game is supposed to be set in. Combat system needs work on KB/mouse. I suppose game controllers work better for these kinds of games.

Worth the low price of $5.99

Lyncoln D., Newegg
3 December 2009
  • Summary: Like the title of my review says, at $5.99 it was worth the price of admission. I wouldn't pay more than $10 for it though.
  • Pros: The game had beautiful graphics and easy-to-learn gameplay. There was enough levels to keep me busy for a good while.
  • Cons: While the vast open areas and epic scenery were nice. The absence of other characters besides the woman that followed me made the game feel lonely. While the gameplay was easy to learn, it was even easier to win because it's impossible to die - that kind of takes away some of the feeling of being...

Okay but not as good as others

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: If you havent played the previous Trilogy buy it instead its a 100 times better and the whole sets only a few bucks more then this piece of junk.
  • Pros: Graphics were pretty good and sliding down walls was fun.
  • Cons: Game got really repetitive not much of a variety of enemies, puzzles, or acrobatics. The ending was also terrible felt like it was supposed to have multiple endings but they stick you with one bad one.

Ok

Liviu O., Newegg
27 September 2009
  • Summary: Great graphics. A bit tricky to handle if you're not patient to read the on screen instructions... duh. Game seems fine, expectations were off, that's all.
  • Pros: Good price. Game play ok. I haven't played the Prince since the first installment many many years ago. Found this one to be playable. It takes a bit more coordination than I thought you'd need. As for the hook or reason to be, I played it few hours when I got it, but didn't make me start it again...
  • Cons: No cons, really

Excellent Game

Rajeev S., Newegg
3 August 2009
  • Summary: Thinking that it would take a lot of processing power, I installed it on my workstation - Q6600, 2GB RAM, and Nvidia 9800 with 1 GB. I run it on full resolution (1920x1200) and only the graphics card becomes little hot (70C) - no significant load on processor, and that too only one core!
  • Pros: Excellent graphics, good storyline and very resourceful guide (doesn't come with the game)
  • Cons: Why is it T rated - I haven't seen anything so far and my 8 and 6 year old daughters love to watch me playing.
