About This Game

Amidst the scorched sands of ancient Persia, there is a legend spun in an ancient tongue. It speaks of a time borne by blood and ruled by deceit. Drawn to the dark powers of a magic dagger, a young Prince is led to unleash a deadly evil upon a beautiful kingdom. Aided by the wiles of a seductive princess and the absolute powers of the Sands of Time, the Prince stages a harrowing quest to reclaim the Palace's cursed chambers and restore peace to his land.

Bought this game on Nov-2015 as a thank you for the good times I had playing this game long time back on Windows XP. Good story. Very engaging. Best played with a controller though. One thing I noticed while playing recently on Windows 10 64bit Home is that if FOG is turned on in game settings, then full display goes white. So had to turn off FOG and play and it worked fine. I totally recommend this game.

Force your monitor to 3:4 ratio and crank up the settings in the nvidia/ATI control panel, and the game looks pretty good. Pair it with the Steam controller and it plays like a modern day game - not a game that is 11 years old. Immensely fun! I had never played anything in this series until now.

One of my all time favorites franchises. I still have the trilogy for the Xbox but can't play it due to the second two since they can't be played on Xbox 360. The controls are a little wonky at times, though, especially using a game pad.

Absolutely a gem. Played this way back with Original XBOX whenever they made games right. Only thing wrong, is that for a new player, they may have some trouble operating the camera angles. They do like to jump around on you.
