Summary: I have loved Prince of Persia-Sands of Time games on PS2 and since this game looked similar and some people were speaking highly of it, I decided to give it a shot. After finishing the game and unlocking >80% of the secret emails, here is what I thought of it. PROS.
Beautiful game, certainly not fun after the first 15 minutes...

Summary: It's been a long time since I've been this annoyed with a game. I had originally played Assassin's Creed 2 and was loving it, so I stopped playing it in order to pick up Assassin's Creed and get back history going in to the second one.
Summary: Playing Assassin's Creed is like hanging out with a caricature of a ditzy high school cheerleader. On one hand, it is a very, very pretty game. Its a pleasure to look at, every detail obviously painstakingly done by skilled professionals. Its also very slow. Now, I'm used to a methodical pace.
Summary: Do you like collecting hundreds of hidden items for no reason other than to brag (without the help of trophies) to you friends? Buy this game. Do you enjoy only having 3-4 different types of missions that you can repeat over and over again with no increase in difficulty or challenge?
Summary: The first 2-3 hours of gameplay are great, jumping from building to building, riding a horse through open fields, hiding from soldiers, etc. Then you realize the major flaw of the game: repetition. You do the exact same thing city after city after city, which gets old really quick.
Summary: The game is gorgeous, but I found it very boring. It's very slow paced. I literally fell asleep at the marketplace (I mean, at the sofa) - that's how I would define it - a relaxing experience. Too relaxing. I don't think that was Ubisoft's aim for this game. Why must you ride a horse for so long?
