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

Okay but not as good as others

  • 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.

An Exoctic Land of Platform Perils

  • Excerpt: Way back in time, when PC's were made of wood and bits of glue, the original Prince of Persia pioneered the style of game play which was taken into three dimensions by Tomb Raider. So what? Well it's back to challenge for the modern platform crown. But this time it's in 3D! Unfortunately, the Prince doesn't quite manage to triumph, but the game has much to recommend it over other platform would-be kings.
  • Pros: More royal than corgies
  • Cons: Slow response and tricky controls

WOW JUST LIKE OLD TIMES

  • Excerpt: I remember playing the original Prince of Persia (POP) on my old 386 around ten years ago. At the time it was a ground breaking action/adventure game with great cartoon graphics and pretty fair music and sound. The original POP actually inspired most action adventure games you see on the market today. The puzzles were relatively easy and the action was simply, well, simple. The main thing I remember is that it was fun to play.
  • Pros: IT's prince of persia
  • Cons: Annoying camera angles

It's OK

  • Excerpt: I played the first one years ago and loved it but thought that more could have been done with it. I happened to be in a computer store one day and came across a boxed set of Prince with the first two games and the 3D version, needless to say I had to try it. I have not yet tried the second game as I was dying to see the 3D version. At first I was quite impressed as I love this type of game, adventure combined with detection and puzzle solving.
  • Pros: Can be fun
  • Cons: Not Challenging enough

Pretty but pretty disappointing

  • Excerpt: So, here it is at last - the sequel to the classic Prince of Persia and less classic but still enjoyable Prince of Persia 2. Prince of Persia 3D continues shortly after PoP 2 left off. You, your wife and the Sultan are visiting the evil King Assan (the Sultan's brother) when you are imprisoned. It's up to you to escape and rescue your wife. PoP 3D is a 3D platformer, with the emphasis being on exploring and solving puzzles.
  • Pros: Pretty, combat is fun
  • Cons: Pace of game is too slow

Well it's Prince Of Persia in 3D...

  • Excerpt: I'm sure most of you have fond memories of the original Prince of Persia, it was one of my favourites. Well Prince Of Persia 3D is pretty much the original in 3D, so why is this a bad thing? Mainly because the gameplay is still in the 80s! Prince Of Persia (The original) works much better as a side-viewed platformer, rather than a poor imitation of Lara Croft's Tomb Raider.
  • Pros: It's Prince Of Persia in 3D
  • Cons: Inferior to other platformers

Prince of Crap

  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: everything
