Great acrobatic and swashbuckling fun! But the game is way too short at 5 hours or less...not much replay value either
8 January 2014
Summary: Pros: -super fun acrobatics! -using elemental powers is fun -new leveling system -challenge mode slightly extends the life of this game -final level is lots of fun and very exciting -using the powers of time (ice freeze, recall, power of time) -acrobatics is more streamlined Cons: -terrible story--there IS background on the 4 main characters but no real depth to characters or emotional investment -too short especially for Prince of Persia veterans like myself...
Summary: Up to now is as excellent game. I have all previous versions (PS2), but this one is almost the same. Very nice game, I recommend it. But note that is almost the same gameplay than previous versions.
Summary: (I own all the Prince of Persia games made for non-hand held consoles - Sands of Time, Warrior Within, Two Thrones, Prince of Persia, and Forgotten Sands) Just a heads up, this review is pretty negative. I was letting off some steam after a particularly pointless section of the game. ----- I'm glad I only paid $18 bucks for it... A lot of the acrobatic parts were in the style of do one thing, then do it again.
Summary: I knew this game wouldn't be on par with the classic trilogy, but man, this game wasn't thought through well at all. The combat system isn't bad, perfect for children to absorb, and there are supplemental fire, ice, shield and wind (the lamest) attacks at your disposal. The upgrade system is simple, but only saves after check points. What's new in this game is freezing water and restoring old structures, which can be tricky when you're multi-tasking.
Summary: I'm a big fan of the Prince of Persia series, so this game was highly anticipated for me. I bought it on street date and played for about six hours. The next day, I finished it in another 4 hours. Needless to say, I was a bit surprised that the game was so short. I played the two challenge arenas and beat them both in an hour. I repeated playing the "waves of enemies" level until I got my character leveled all the way up.
