Prince of Persia Classic Reader Review - 7.5

MaximusAurelius, IGN Entertainment
16 June 2007
  • 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 ...
  • Pros: Good clean fun
  • Cons: Had its day, too easy, boring

  • Excerpt: "...game. If ever the Prince takes a misjudged leap or slips off a tower, your magical female companion is there to save you and whisk you back to the nearest safe spot. In essence, this is an autosave feature which saves every couple of seconds. This nullifies a lot of the challenge and makes you take more risks, as the stakes are low, however I find it does also minimise frustration of having to repeat long sections of the game over and over again. - ...
  • Pros: Beautiful stylised graphics, great platform gaming, fluid movements, very fun to play
  • Cons: low difficulty, little replay value

A game that is different, but enjoyable

  • Excerpt: "...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. 2) You can never die (I'll elaborate more on this later) 3) ...
  • Pros: You can never die; One on One fights; DLC
  • Cons: Collecting Light seeds to progress; Poor Ending; No multiplayer

  • Excerpt: "...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. Even with the difficulty turned down it seemed damned near impossible to avoid ...
  • Pros: Seamless platforming, great soundtrack
  • Cons: Too easy, too drawn out, poor combat, irritating characters, ridiculous achievements, odd graphics

  • 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 ... until ...
  • Pros: Beautiful visuals, easy - to - pick - up, intuitive controls .
  • Cons: Clunky combat, repetitive gameplay, zero challenge .

  • Excerpt: "While playing through Prince of Persia it is so easy to lose yourself in its immersive world. Which is one of the game's best selling points, not due to story but it's incredible visuals. Taking the long-running series down a different path, the game utilizes cel-shaded graphics which really enhance the feeling of an old legend being told once again. The story however, is very hit and miss but with that being said, it is not constantly rammed down ...
  • Pros: Stunning visuals, animation and character design
  • Cons: Too easy and the storyline a little lacking .

  • Excerpt: " Prince of Persia I have always loved, from the very beginning but what Ubisoft have never failed on is it's unique game play and captivity. Quite literally use the whole game as your play ground, running up wall, jumping small canyons then landing on ledges, climbing up poles, rope climbing, ring swinging, running along ceilings, jumping from wall to wall etc. All of this action while puzzel solving and destroying the bad guys as well as the big ...
  • Pros: highly playable and very exciting
  • Cons: some of the puzzels can be frustrating, but not often .

  • Excerpt: "Prince of persia is one of the longer running franchises in the video games industry, and after a rather successful comeback on the previous generation of consoles (the playstation 2 and gamecube et.c.) it has been re-invented yet again for the current generation. Although the main character's title remains the same he is a different prince to the previous set of games (The sands of time games) so players are unaware of this prince's past actions. == ...
  • Pros: Beautiful Graphics, "fire and forget" controls
  • Cons: Short, repetitive, rather poorly conveyed story

The Persian Prince Is Back With A Bang!

7 January 2009
  • Excerpt: "...screaming out for your attention! *Introduction* The Prince of Persia was originally a mildly successful, low budget series that was started in the very late 80's to early 90's. The game was a classic spin on the Action Archetype (Think Mario, In the Desert) with the classic 'hero must save damsel' storyline. The first 3 games were all on ancient systems, which some people might not even remember! Consoles such as the Mega Drive, Nes (Nintendo ...
  • Pros: Beautiful comic - book like graphics, great music, fun battles and solid gameplay .
  • Cons: No real difficulty due to the way the game works .
