If you're a fan of the Assassin's Creed franchise then you'll love this because Prince Of Perisa is the father of Assassin's Creed.

Is there a better "remake" game than Sands of Time? Maybe the new Tomb Raider? This game revolutionized platforming in many ways. The controls are so fluid. You just want to make the acrobatics fast and flowing. Get it wrong? Just rewind. These mechanics were revolutionary at the time. I loved this game when I played it on the GameCube way back when. Its still a fun romp through amazing puzzle platforms. A+.

"Most people think Time is like a river, that flows swift and sure in one direction but I have seen the face of time and can tell you they are wrong. Time is like an ocean in a storm, you may wonder who I am and why I say this ,sit down and I will tell you a tale like none that you have ever heard." Origin of a great series. Btw the official soundtrack is amazing 10/10
