12th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards Winner: Outstanding Achievement in Animation The critically acclaimed Prince of Persia franchise returns for the first time on next-generation platforms with an all-new epic journey. Built by the same award-winning Ubisoft Montreal studio that created Assassins Creed, Prince of Persia has been in development for over three years to deliver a whole new action-adventure gaming experience to consumers. With a whole new Prince, storyline, open world environments, combat style, signature illustrative graphical style and the addition of Elika, a deadly new ally, Prince of Persia brings the franchise to new heights of deadly acrobatic, artistry and is set to become a fan favorite.

Features

  • A new hero emerges: Master the acrobatics, strategy and fighting tactics of the most agile warrior of all time. Grip fall down the face of a building, perform perfectly timed acrobatic combinations, and swing over canyons, buildings and anything that is reachable. This new rogue warrior must utilize all of his new skills, along with a whole new combat system, to battle Ahriman's corrupted lieutenants to heal the land from the dark Corruption and restore the light.
  • A new epic journey begins: Escape to experience the new fantasy world of ancient Persia. Masterful storytelling and sprawling environments will deliver to action-adventure fans an experience that rivals even the best Hollywood movies.
  • A new open world structure: A first for the Prince of Persia franchise - now you have the freedom to determine how the game evolves in this non-linear adventure. Players will decide how they unfold the storyline by choosing their path in the open-ended world.
  • Emergence of a deadly new ally: History's greatest ally is revealed in the form of Elika, a dynamic AI companion who joins the Prince in his fight to save the world. Gifted with magical powers, she interacts with the player in combat, acrobatics and puzzle-solving, enabling the Prince to reach new heights of deadly high-flying artistry through special duo acrobatic moves or devastating fighting combo attacks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool take on the series The unique art style and game design make this a great addition to the series. The combat is fluid and the help that you get from the second character definitely adds to the game play fun. Worth picking up if you like the series or the action adventure genre. I loved the story and it kept me coming back to do the collectibles as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Super Repetitive This game starts out relatively fun but that doesnt last much more than 10 minutes. 90% of the game is just traveling to the objective area. The character movement is a little stiff but its bearable. Pretty similar to most PoP games. Theres little mini bosses that pop up every once in a while which are easily beatable. The same goes for the main bosses. You just figure out what actually hits them and you cheese it until the fight is over. The beginning of the game is barely different than the end of the game in terms of character abilities. I cant remember any new moves or abilities you earn besides the 4 power plate abilities (which arent as interesting as they sound). The free running paths are all very similar and not a single area sticks out in my mind. There is also only one puzzle that was somewhat challenging. I felt compelled to finnish the game despite being bored most of the time. The ending sealed this as a terrible game for me. Possible spoiler (ill try to be as vague as possible) the prince makes a choice at the end which throws away all the work you just did. It makes you feel like there was no point to even playing the game. Because of this, there is absolutely no replay value to this game. Its ok if you are a casual gamer, but anyone looking for a game with any content should pass this one up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very solid game. Some of the best graphics of this generation are in this 2008 "Prince of Persia" game cel shading is used I believe which makes for fantastic graphics. The gameplay is a bit repetitve in the latter stages of the game. However, the freerunning flow is amazing and breath taking throughout most of the game. The sound is pretty solid nothing too new for the prince of persia games, but that isn't a problem at all. All in all a very solid game that deserves to be bought by any lesser mainstream gamer, especially at 2.99 a copy. Enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from incredible game this game has really fun game play its not your usual style though. you don't go around mindlessly killing hordes of enemies, however you fight one enemy at a time and have cleverly string together the most devastating combos. It has an incredible graphical style. The story is really cool and the dialogue is great as well. if your looking for a great inventive, puzzle action game with cool gameplay this one is worth trying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for PoP fans Honestly, I'm just gonna keep this short. If you've played other PoP games then I'm sure you'll love this one. The controls are similar to The Forgotten Sands, and the graphics are better then Sands of Time. The combat system is a lot of fun, and it's got Assassin's Creed style parkour. There's not penalty for dying, whether it's by falling or just being killed in battle. Elika will save you no matter what and all that happens is the enemy gets a little health back. The game is totally fun and i would recomend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic for only $2.99 I am one of those people who is broke a lot, so I was looking online for some cheap games. I stumbled across this game, and picked it up at GameStop. This is a good game. Before Brink and Asassin's Creed, this was THE parkour game. You can run up walls, across them, or even run on ceilings. The Graphics are weird, but they look great. It's like mixing drawings with graphics. The fighting is fun, and this game will last for a pretty long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fun adventure This is the first Prince of Persia game I have ever played and after completing the story I have to say I am very pleased. Although it does not bring a challenge, if you look at the other qualities of this game I think you find a experience worth trying. First of all, this game is beautiful. The environments are rich in color and each have an interesting layout. The characters also look very nice too. Exploring the land is very fun as well. You will be doing a lot of climbing, jumping and grappling and it's a lot of fun to check out as much of the land as possible. However, the combat is the weakest point in the game. The Prince has a button for his sword, claw, Elika's magic, and a acrobatic move. Players shouldn't try to mash these buttons, instead they should try to chain together combos that deal a big chunk of damage to the enemy. Besides trying to think up new combos, the fighting is static. The only point of advancement is the game is when the Prince gathers light seeds for Elika and unlocks power plates to travel farther into new areas. Knowing this though, I would still recommend this game. What it lacks in challenge, it makes up for in a fun adventure in story.
