Summary: I was never really into the Prince of Persia games because I don't really like games with blood and gore. However, this game caught my interest because I saw that it was about time travel. As a huge fan of stories that involve travelling through time, I was immediately intrigued. As an added bonus, this game features much less violence than the original version, so I decided to try it. I have to say, this game cleans up nicely.
Summary: The Good: Amazing graphical showcase for the PSP, great voice acting and sound, all the content from the console versions is here, long campaign, exclusive areas and content, excellent control setup The Bad: The environments may be pretty but the character models can be down right ugly, checkpoints and saves are unbalanced for PSP standards I had high expectations for POPRS and it went beyond them!
Summary: I have a collection of good PSP games and this one is really good. I can't play the game as much as I would like to because I work but when I get the chance to play I just can't stop playing because its that much fun.
Summary: Prince of Persia Rival Swords is in no way, a bad game. This game just seems to have some trouble finding out what kind of game it want to be. It seems like sometimes it tries to be a hack 'n slash game, while other times it attempts to be an adventure game, and then it tries to be a stealth action game. Sometimes, blending genres can really work, such as in Valkyria Chronicles 2, but that is not the case in Rival Swords.
Summary: compared to the reviews i have read about the prince of persia series, i never had the chance to get one. gameplay is very nice. graphics are great. can't wait to get the others in the series for the psp. it is worth getting.
Summary: My grandson really wanted this game. He was very excited about getting it and loaded it onto his PSP successfully. When he tried to play it it would not play. Thinking it was a defected game I returned it and got another one. Once again the same problem. If there is some secret to getting this to work it should be included in the instructions. We are currently waiting for a response to our email from the help department.
