Summary: A few minutes after I finished installing it, it already froze! I closed and opened it again. It didn't freeze until I was in early training, it froze again. Sheesh! That's too early, so I bet it freezes a lot. That's the reason I give up. I'm disappointed. My system is reasonably great. MSI motherboard, 2 GB memory cards, Windows 7, Radeon 5750, AMD Phenom II X6 1090T. I bet it's game's problem. I hope they'll make patch for that problem.
Summary: I couldn't stay awake through this game. No challenge, and too many tricks you can only do in certain spots. It's practically impossible to lose this game. I'd almost say it's just a long movie, but it's not even that. It has about as much plot as a 'see spot run' book.
Summary: We all thought Ubisoft was treating their PC fans well when this game was released with no additional DRM. Now, it appears that they just didn't care enough about the PC version to bother paying the licensing fees for DRM. Ubi recently announced that none of the new downloadable content for POP will be available on PC. It was never stated upon release that DLC would be platform-specific.
Prince of Persia sets a bad precedent for DLC and future Ubisoft titles

Summary: Recently there have many cases of downloadable content being exclusive to one platform. It happened to Grand Theft Auto IV and Fallout 3, two high profile titles. However, the DLC that is coming February 26th for Prince of Persia is fundamentally different. First, this DLC will continue the main story of the game and give it a new, different ending. Compare this to most DLC, where what is added are new side quests/missions, weapons, armors, bonus modes and maps.
You cant die, so no challenge, so no edge of the seat tension, so waste of time.

Summary: I thought in order not to die in games you need a cheat. Well in this one the cheat is built in. No matter how many times you fall off the cliff or get KOed by the boss or other you get saved by the girl who accompanies you. WHAT FUN IS THAT??? No pain no gain. Too bad because the cheezy dialog can be funny at times.
as much fun as gouging out my eyes with a shrimp fork

Summary: according to ubi the game has "An intricate new combat system that lets you wage battles with no boundaries. Manipulate the environment and the enemies themselves to develop your own unique fighting style." Unfortunately this is not true. The game is a console game that was just switched to pc with no thought. There is no mouse look in this game, which means that the game is completely linear.
Conclusion: When I bought this game I was very excited, because the "first" Prince of Persia title (sands of time) was for me awesome. After some hours of play I began to ask myself why they ruined such a great game...in sands of time I felt myself like in a fairy tale, now the atmosphere has become too dark. The game has become very difficult too and it gets very frustrating at times. Even the story is confusing and sometimes it is hard to understand what to do next...
Summary: Yet again another hyped game we had to wait ages for and when it came out you guessed it it was crap the only word for it. The graphics are fine sound ok gameplay questionable. Only 12 levels as well. Some of the collision detection is very suspect if you played the game you will no what I mean I didn`t like the 3d angles it game me a very wierd feeling, the usual things associated with prince of persia, traps guards, puzzles have to be solved.
Prince of Persia 3D (PC): How could they spoil such a wonderful game?
30 July 2000
Summary: The original Price of Persia was so fresh and original it was where the break through in gaming came from. Did you know this game is where the idea for Tomb Raider came from? I would have thought that making a good 3D version this game would be quite easy, but even so they managed to spoil it. If they had done a good kob of this game they good have released at least another 2 games like it and made millions.
