Summary: This game breaks strongly from earlier versions portraying the Prince in a sort of watercolor environment and he looks and sounds like he's from Denver. Pretty co-star. Fighting is strange, with seemingly no actual direct control. Lots of jumping and climbing and being saved by magic powers of his new girlfriend. His old girlfriend has become a lost mule.
Summary: This is a great game, but paying the extra $20+ dollars for the limited edition is not worth it. I only got the limited edition when it was sold on Amazon on sale for $29.99. The limited edition is essentially the regular version plus an extra Blu-Ray disc. This bonus disc has a "soundtrack", making of videos, art gallery, and a snippet of a help guide. The "soundtrack" was disappointing since you can't play it from a CD player or transfer to an MP3 player.
Summary: Sands of Time is by far the most fun platform of all time in my opinion. It was both breathtaking and revolutionary. Unfortunately, the next two sequels were more cookie cutter and repetitive - with a fake dark atmosphere and repetitive, needless fighting. This games returns to the fun of the Sands of Time. The acrobatics are the showcase. The atmosphere, though not the most vibrant, can be lush at times.
Summary: This game is truly one of the most enjoyable games I've played in many years. It reminds me of playing some of the earlier Nintendo games such as Legend of Zelda because of the pace and relaxation of the whole experience. There is no hurry in this game and no annoyances that you find in many other games. This is a nice break from some of the awesome but sometimes stressful pace and feel of some of the newer games out there. P.O.P.
