Prince of Persia Classic Reader Review - 7.5

MaximusAurelius, IGN Entertainment

  • Conclusion: Prince of Persia classic is a great remake of the real late 80's classic. For those of you older gamers who know the game, you'll notice that all the details of the game are extremely familiar, especially the identical mapping of the levels. Graphically TXB has it on the spot. It's simply a gorgeous game and without a doubt raises the bar for the XBLA. You'll enjoy playing through the game as it's visually enticing.

Knock down but not a knock out

  • Excerpt: Prince of Persia is what I personally consider to be a low difficulty rating game, neat to play, good fun with reasonably good graphics. I obtained this now relatively old game recently at the knock down price of 99p at a car boot sale. It’s been played a lot, but most recently relegated to the back of he cupboard due to boredom issues. It’s a third person perspective game with a 3D platform. More impressive in its time, I guess, but this old dog has had its day.
  • Pros: Good clean fun
  • Cons: Had its day, too easy, boring

Only buy this if you hate owning money

  • Excerpt: What a cynical, pointless and iditoic game this is. It shouldn't have been made, I'm not sure why it was made and by me it was played and oh how I dismayed. This is an action adventure game based around platforming and combat, set in some weird universe which looks like it fell victim to several exploding paint factories. There's just too much going on graphically, it's horribly overdesigned.

  • Excerpt: The Premise… Prince of Persia is a 3D platform game, played with a 3rd person perspective. You play the role of the Prince, who with the aid of the magical woman Elika, must cleanse her kingdom from the darkness which has engulfed it, and defeat the evil forces which now inhabit it. Drink it in... Prince of Persia is a beautiful and unique looking game. The graphic style, known as 'cel-shading' is a real highlight of the whole game.
  • Pros: Beautiful stylised graphics, great platform gaming, fluid movements, very fun to play
  • Cons: low difficulty, little replay value

  • Excerpt: This was the first Prince of Persia game released for the Xbox 360 and the PS3, id seen it advertise before but because of the cartoon like graphics i wasn't sure id like it, however, it was a brilliant game. The main story of the game, sees you playing as the Prince and working together with Elika, a princess who is fleeing from soldiers when you first meet her.

A game that is different, but enjoyable

  • Excerpt: When I was deciding what new game to get, I came across Prince of Persia. I have played Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time for PS2, and I thought it was excellent. I had heard mixed reviews on this game, but decided to get it. I'm glad I did. There are quite a number of big changes to this game compared to the old Prince of Persia Trilogy. 1) The Fights are one on one, compared to Sands of Time, which are one vs many.
  • Pros: You can never die; One on One fights; DLC
  • Cons: Collecting Light seeds to progress; Poor Ending; No multiplayer

  • Excerpt: I must admit it's been sometime since I've played the Prince of Persia games, most notably when The Sands of Time came out. I was a big platforming nerd then and I was recommended the game by a friend. Sitting down to play it, it certainly was a good platformer that put even Miss Lara Croft to shame, however, I repeatedly get mauled by several enemies at once and ending up dying far too much.
  • Pros: Seamless platforming, great soundtrack
  • Cons: Too easy, too drawn out, poor combat, irritating characters, ridiculous achievements, odd graphics

All That Glitters ...

  • Excerpt: The original Prince of Persia and its sequel, The Shadow and the Flame, were fantastic; blending wonderfully intuitive movement and combat with for-the-time impressive graphics. 1999's Prince of Persia 3D was most certainly not - a horrible polygonal nightmare that was made fiendishly difficult mostly by dent of its awful controls. Come 2003 and Ubisoft rebooting the franchise with a trio of largely-excellent reimaginings, and then nothing ...
  • Pros: Beautiful visuals, easy - to - pick - up, intuitive controls .
  • Cons: Clunky combat, repetitive gameplay, zero challenge .

Prince of Persia has had a golden history, but as much as it glitters, this is a let-down.
