  • Summary: The best platformer from yesteryear brought bang up to date. Although the graphics aren't jaw dropping they do look good, the animation fluid (as it should be with this series) and the levels look lovely. As for hte game itself.

  • Summary: Nostalgia, nostalgia, nostalgia--in a good way. While the core gameplay is certainly present, the controls were a bit too clunky. I understand the desire to enhance classic games while still retaining an authentic experience of the original, but it almost feels like it was designed to have poor...

  • Summary: I have to say this is a great remake. Something to consider: this game is 800 credits because although it's only an hour long (technically) it took a group of people time to make as it was remade from scratch, with excellent graphical improvements.

  • Summary: I'm very happy to see this classic title appear on XBLA. Sure, it is frustrating, but for those of us enjoying a challenge, it is a blessing. Nice graphics, too. The only problem is the delayed responsiveness of the controls, but that was part of the original too, so... I'll bear with that.

  • Summary: This game could have been great, but the unresponsive controls make this game frustrating to a point where it is not enjoyable any more. The demo was real easy and I thought the rest of the game would be a little more difficult but not to the point where you repeat the same 30secs about 100 times to...

  • Summary: I have to agree review with the Computer and Video Games review up there. This is the best looking remake for Live Arcade yet. But that's where the good ended for me. It did have the feeling of the 3D POPs and some of the sound effects and animations were transitioned nicely from those game into...

Prince of Persia Classic Reader Review - 7.5

  • 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.

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.
  • Pros: Good clean fun
  • Cons: Had its day, too easy, boring

  • 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...
