Summary: I'm not very far into the game, but it's pretty fun so far. I'm the only one out of my friends that never played this game when it came out, but they always spoke highly of it... which is why I bought it now.
Summary: Sands of Time was Ubisoft's first effort in a new Prince of Persia trilogy.Its captured the original essence of the game without compromising tradition:Jumping dodging spikes,walking through walls,fighting against their enemies.I recently purchased this game for relax in the weekends,for only $8.00 (its a bargain) PLAYABILITY:The gameplay consists of three types of actions: NAVIGATION (the most common and best type), COMBAT, and PUZZLE-SOLVING.Its surprisingly easy to...
It's not on Sony's Greatest Hits List for nothing...

Summary: I recently purchased this game on sale for $15.00. It's definitely worth that, maybe more, but I might have had a problem with it paying the original $50. The game is very good, as any number of other reviews here can tell you. Once I popped it into my PS2, I had trouble turning it off because I was having so much fun. Personally, I find the negative reviews to be far more valuable than the positive ones, so I'll focus my attention on the downsides of this game.
Summary: Ubi-soft's game, The Prince of Persia: The sands of time is an outragously awsome game! That said, I would like to present to you my review. At first I figued Prince of Persia was some generic Platformer with a Persian and Indian featured in the game, I was unaware it was an old franchise (My sister's constant raving about it didn't help my skeptism either). So after my younger sister and brother had played it I decided to give it a try.
Summary: In terms of a pure gameplay experience, this is among the best of the next-generation games. The first thing you will notice are the stunning graphics. The textures are clean, the faces and character models are crisp, and the animation is breathtaking. The second thing you will notice is the control - every single action (and there are quite a few of them) is incredibly easy to pull off.
Summary: Stunning animation, movie-like camera and effects, fun gameplay, and wonderfully designed interactive environments make this one of the best games of the year. The voiceover narration is fantastic and I particularly enjoyed the charming and humorous comments on the "game over/try again?" screens. The music is nicely done with some standout pieces throughout the game; a nice touch is that the combat music changes every few levels which keeps things from getting stagnant.
Summary: Most video games these days seem all new-fangled and complicated to my 20-year-old self, but I'm into this. The puzzles are tricky without being frustrating, the graphics are rather gorgeous, and my friend Krista says the prince is hot. I think he's a little polygonal-looking, but I guess men with jagged edges need love, too.
Summary: From the development team who created the gritty stealth-action phenomenon Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time reflects on Ubi Soft Montreal Studios' enormous talents on integrating fantastic visuals with amazing gameplay value. Prior to trying this game out, I had not-so-fond memories of sludging through the dull, boring dungeons of the vintage Prince of Persia titles. Five minutes later into the game, however, I was completely hooked.
