Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time review (PS2)

HonestGamers
2 March 2005
  • Excerpt: At this point, you have two options. Either you can mash buttons like crazy and hope for the best, or you can press the 'L1' button. Go with the second choice and the game will stutter. You'll relive the last few seconds you played... backwards. In this manner, fatal dives into a sea of spikes and even poorly-timed jumps that would otherwise lead to frustrating backtracking can be avoided.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Just RPG
4 January 2005
  • Excerpt: More than a decade ago, Jordan Mechner made a game featuring a turbaned man running through dungeons, making death-defying leaps, evading traps, and dabbling in more than the odd bit of swordplay with enemy soldiers – all to get back the woman he loved. The graphics were pretty ordinary by modern standards, the story was not exactly one to rave about, and the music sounded downright tinny.

  • Conclusion: The Sands of Time is an excellent addition to the series and only the lack of subtitles puts a dent in the rating. The addition of the original Prince of Persia as an unlockable extra is a very nice touch though.

  • Excerpt: Unlike past 2D titles though, this one includes the above-mentioned narration. The narration continues throughout the game as the Prince constantly tells his story. If he dies, he calmly states "No, that isn't how it happened." If he solves a puzzle, he continues his story. The player isn't forced to sit through this dialogue while the action stands still. Instead, he can usually continue with the game as it goes on.

  • Excerpt: Guardando alcuni filmati di anteprime di questo gioco, distribuito da Ubisoft, ero curioso di verificare se tutti i vari movimenti del personaggio erano così semplici da realizzare o no. Chi di voi ha giocato al primo Prince of Persia, sarà rimasto stupefatto dal modo naturale in cui, per quei tempi, il personaggio principale si muoveva nei vari livelli.

  • Conclusion: Ongetwijfeld zullen de oudere gamers onder ons met plezier terugdenken aan vervlogen glorietijden bij het spelen van de laatste nieuwe Prince. Maar ook jongere gamers vinden hier meer dan voldoende uitdaging. Wie niet bang is van actie, platforms en moeilijke puzzels, is hier aan het juiste adres. To prince or not to prince, that is the question!
  • Pros: Prince aan 30 fps op de ps2. Originele prince game unlockbaar als extra. Geweldige decors en omgevingen. Back-in-time optie.
  • Cons: Soms falende analoge besturing. Zwakke voice acting. Weinig AI voor Farah. Bij momenten storende camera.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Gamereactor
8 November 2003
  • Conclusion: Det är som hämtat ur tusen och en natt. En klassisk saga. Den unge prinsen följer med sin pappa på härjningståg. För att visa sig på styva linan smyger han in i fiendeslottet och stjäl en magisk dolk. Det visar sig att storvisiren var ute efter samma dolk, och snart lurar han prinsen att släppa lös en massa onda krafter. Även om Prince of Persia är en klassiker så är prinsen idag en bortglömd spelhjälte.
  • Pros: Stämningsfyllt, strålande spelkontroll
  • Cons: Linjärt, bitvis ojämn grafik
