Disappointed grandchild

  • 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.

Oops. Sorry, Prince...I couldn't see where you were going.

  • Summary: This was my first Prince of Persia game. Given the relative dearth of great adventure games on the PSP, I thought I would give this acclaimed franchise a try. However, I must say I'm embarrassed when I walk by the PoP:RS game case that sits collecting dust on my bookshelf.

  • Summary: Let me start by saying I love most Prince of Persia games and I would probably like this one to if it were for the camera! How am I supposed to play a game when the camera is facing backwards 1/2 the time? And I know I could re-center the camera but I never really had this problem with other PoP games (sands of time comes to mind). Having said all this I have loaned the game to a friend to doesn't mind the camera at all so maybe it's just me.

Climbing is as good as ever, but the rest just sucks

S. Cordes, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This game follows on from the PS2 version which was, in my opinion very good. This is a straight port which shows yet again that games of this genre (Tomb Raider, POP etc.) just don't work on the PSP. Climbing is a good and fluid as you would find on a console version, but when it comes to fighting it's just jumpy, awkward and clumsy.
