Presumo che tutti oramai sappiano cosa è e cosa non è prince of persia....e chi non lo sa può benissimo considerarsi una capra in termini videoludici, ed apprestarsi a comprare questo bellissimo titolo!...Eh si, anche se abbastanza vecchiotto Prince of Persia : The sands of time rimane un titolone, un gioco che riesce ad appassionare qualsiasi genere di utenza e che vi terrà incollati allo schermo del vostro pc per un bel po di tempo!....un gioco che unisce parkour, puzzle, platform e azione in un mix pazzesco, con un gameplay che non stanca e continua a interessare...la grafica per l'epoca era veramente curata, anche se ovviamente al giorno d'oggi sfigura in confronto a molti titoli next gen, ma sincermente, giocando a questo titolo, non ve ne potrà fregar de meno della grafica....il level design è ottimo, le musiche pure, e la storia vi spingerà a continuare il gioco senza mai annoiarvi!!....punto a sfavore solo del doppiaggio italiano, che personalmente non ho trovato sto gran che...anzi -.-....ma non soffermiamoci su queste inezie, questo è un gioco che va comprato!

Il primo episodio di questa saga è qualcosa di innovativo, bella la grafica e la storia anche se semplice è coinvolgente. I combattimenti a lungo andare saranno molto ripetitivi ma finirlo sarà una bella soddisfazione. Il metodo di salvataggio a checkpoint penalizza per il fatto che si riparte con la vita che si aveva in precedenza e a volte si rimane "incartati" in alcuni punti.

Do I recommend this game? No! I strongly Insist that you should try it!

The "Prince" was one of the best titles even in 90's, but its 3D re-vision I am talking about - is definetely a mind-blowing piece of art! We've got a perfect mixture of both simple and catchy story, and a veeery enjoyable acrobatics, with tons of multi-levelled obstacles to climb, enemies to bring down...

Game is perfect!

Well, yeah, it's dated 11 years now, so we have visuals of PS2-era... But it was fascinating back then, and still looks pretty decent even on big screens. And it's the only dated part. Story - still fine, acrobatics (and control of it) - kicks asses, music - eternally fresh.
9/10 in my book.

PS Yeah, there is "fog" issue you might meet, if at first start all is blue and you don't see anything... worry not, just turn off that "fog" feature in video options and you'll be fine.

The Gold Egg of the trilogy, classic as ♥♥♥♥, decent and sometimes annoying combat (I.E. a couple of those big dudes surround you, knock you down, you get up, rinse and repeat while they say "YOUR TURN! YOUR TURN!" as you get stuck in an infinite loop of ♥♥♥♥ no amount of time travel can save you from. Eh, anyway...

Time travel, parkour, and puzzles. This game does those 3 best (well, at least at the time, its no fun, fast paced, free roaming type of parkour like in the Assassin's Creed games, but more of a (mostly) linear, slow pace, and eventually satisfying platforming and parkouring and whatnot. Also unlike in Assassin's Creed, you can wallrun horizontally and vertically to reach otherwise inaccessible places, which made me cream my pants the first time.

Puzzles are fairly straightforward and challenging.

And then you have several time altering powers using the Dagger of Time, you have your:

Recall: Reverse time (uh, in real time?.... backwards....? er, yup!) for up to several seconds, usually for saving you from heavy damage, screwing up on a jump or puzzle, or instant deaths.

The Eye of the Storm: Slows down time and makes combat and some puzzles/platforming/parkouring easier.

Enemy Freeze: Renders an enemy frozen in time and much easier to kill.

Frozen Time Assault: Freeze time and go into a badass Omnislash-like frenzy on multiple enemies and wreak havoc.

All time powers require either a sand tank, or a halfmoon depending on which power it is. You fill up sandtanks and halfmoons by finishing enemies with the Dagger of Time.

One of my favorite parts in the game I remember is the bats, who always retreat in groups of 3 when you kill a bunch. My brother would always yell "THREE RETREAT!" and I would always laugh.

Man... I wish I would of kept my Gamecube copy of the game I got back in 2003 that my dad got me for Christmas... because... them nostalgias.

The PC version of this game holds up pretty good though, well at least the last time I checked. I'm one of those hip ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s who still uses Windows XP, so I wouldn't know whether this is horribly broken or not on much newer operating systems.

So yeah, a classic game and is pretty badass in general, give it a try sometime.

I owned this game on Gamecube, PS3 and now PC. I can't tell you how many hours I've put into playing and re-playing it. <3

Game rewards your progression by making the protagonist's clothes come off. 11/10 would undress the prince again and again!

The first Prince of Persia game I played and probably the one I enjoyed the most. It was great while it lasted.

The level design, the storytelling, and the ability to rewind time during intense platforming sessions all combine to create what has become one of my favourite games, that I have played through too many times to count.

Absolutely awesome game, the story line throughout this game is just fantastic. The fight engine is a little limited and can be frustrating to use on PC occasionally and the camera angles can be a ♥♥♥♥ but they are more only complaints and they are really minor. Esepcially as the sequals fixed these issues. But, the story itself and the complexity of the puzzles and boss fights makes this into an absolute gem of a game that has inspired many games after it's time.

One of the best platformers ever made. Great parkour sections, well animated and challenging to boot. The sequels never managed to top this one, whether it comes to story or gameplay (though the sequels vastly improved the combat system, I'll give them that).

Has aged relatively well, though I don't remember the game having such awful washed out colours on PS2 as it does on PC. Get a good SweetFX setting to resolve this.

Only fault of the game is the repetitive and simplistic combat, but it's animated well enough as to not be TOO annoying. Just figure out how to cheat the combat system so you can get to the platforming, which you'll mostly be doing anyway.

The game is an old classic, and a damn good one.
I mean, it does have its drawbacks. The camera, for one, is horrible and at times can really mess things up, especially during combat. And this particular version of the game has a few strange bugs, but nothing game breaking (except for one at the end of the game which forced me to reload my last save).
Those things aside however, the game is really solid. The gameplay is fun and quite a bit challenging, there are lots of platforming sections and environmental puzzles which are fun to go through. The story is... all right, nothing earth shattering but engaging enough and well executed, in my opinion.
If you haven't played it already, please do so, you will most likely enjoy it. Anyone interested in platforming should give this game a chance. And if you're not interested in platforming, give it a shot anyway, who knows, you might get into it!

*Warning* possible spoilers ahead

Pros:
+Excellent platforming based puzzles. These are usually pretty simple to work out once you realise most of them have only one path but when you consider how they work as a whole they are pretty ingenious and will challenge you're platforming skills and timing.

+Great atmosphere and art direction. The Persian setting is unique and rarely done. Even in 2014 this game looks excellent. The character models haven't aged well but the environments have for sure.

+Ability to rewind time and use it in battle is an excellent idea

+First person view allows you to offset the terrible camera

+Varied enemies force you to engage combat in different ways

+The Prince. Although it happens infrequently, when the Prince does chime in it's usually something humorous and entertaining.

Cons:
-The camera is a pain whether you're doing platforming or you're in combat. During platforming the camera will frequently move into undesirable positions forcing you to guess what you're supposed to be doing next. In combat it does the same which quickly becomes tiresome when you're unable to see the enemy attacking you from behind. It also struggles hard when you're in tight spaces and the camera has to contend with walls :S

-You're companion is kinda useless and it feels as if you're partnership is a one way deal. During platforming she will stand there and let you do all the work aside from when she has to go through a few cracks or pull a few triggers (to Ubisoft's credit they use this as a point of humour which is much appreciated). In combat she is the same. The AI refuses to move from a certain position unless you stray too far from her which means that when there are multiple enemies attacking her she is essentially a sitting duck which wouldn't be too bad but she has very low health. Oh and her arrows can harm you. She killed me once when I had one enemy left to kill and a number of times her arrow has hit me stunning me for a number of enemies to take away my remaining health. Her voice actor is also very poor.

-Combat encounters take far too long on occasions. You would expect combat to last about a cpuple of minutes at the most but sometimes they take double that making those encounters tedious to go through.

-Fall heights are deceptive. There are essentially 3 fall heights. Twice you're height which the prince can handle. 2-3 times you're height the Prince will lose a bit of health. Anything above 3 times you're height and the Prince will die. This becomes incredible frustrating when you have what appears to be a manageable fall and yet the prince cant take it. What would have been useful is a more lenient falling system where you took larger damage rather than outright dying for higher drops.

-The story. It feels as though everything is rushed. You never get a chance at the beginning to digest what is actually going and then suddenly you're on this Grand Adventure. What's worse is that at no point aside from the end of the game is the story truly developed, which is a shame because the concept is excellent. There are points in which the subplot with you're companion is expanded but it feels so contrived especially since she is so damn unlikable.

Misc thoughts:

=You're companion would be far more likeable if she was controllable. Frequently during the game there are situations only she can deal with like crawl into narrow spaces etc. I stand by my point that she is still useless as you tend to do 95% of the work but being able to control her would have enabled more complex puzzles and allowed there to be more varied
platforming challenges if creative enough. In combat it would allow you to experience a different combat style and allow you to better position her to reduce damage if you were primarily going to play as the Prince. I belieev this would also help you better engage with her as a character (although thevoice acting is still terrible)

=It would be nice to have a larger variety of sand based abilities to use.

=Controller support on PC would have made the game much more easier to control but as it is it's still very much playable.

Final thought:
Get the game if you enjoy excellent platforming and puzzles but pass if you're buying it for excellent combat or story.

Si tratta di un gran gioco, che riscrive la serie antica come meglio non si poteva. Fu uno dei primi giochi (se non il primo) che permetteva di riavvolgere il tempo per evitare cadute e danni da nemici. O semplicemente per correggere una mossa sbagliata. La grafica è ancora bella tuttora, ma è lo stile grafico che è davvero eccellente. Doppiaggio italiano del principe molto impostato ma ci si fa l'abitudine mentre i restanti sono ben doppiati (sopratutto Farah). Compratelo assolutamente!

Memorabile. Uno dei giochi migliori che abbia mai giocato. Level design ottimo, grafica davvero buona per i tempi, ambientazioni molto curate, sistema di combattimento divertente e non eccessivamente banale.
Dura poco: breve ma intenso.

che dire......questa è una delle mie saghe videoludiche preferite e,in particolare,la tetralogia delle sabbie del tempo mi è piaciuta molto.
andiamo a vedere cosa ha di buono questo titolo:
-prince of persia è un gioco che fa dei combattimenti il suo punto di forza e anche in questo capitolo risultano molto divertenti e difficoltosi,soprattutto andando avanti nel gioco.
-la trama non è niente di speciale,anche se devo ammettere che non mi è dispiaciuta per niente nella sua banalità
-la grafica,anche se un pò "anzianotta",è comunque godibile anche oggi, grazie alla possibilità di impostare texture e ombre in "alta definizione"
-il sonoro è su ottimi livelli,almeno dal mio punto di vista.
-la longevità del titolo è anch'essa buona,attestandosi sulle 10 ore di gioco.
Insomma se dovrei dare un voto a questo capitolo,gli darei un 10/10 non solo perchè e divertente ma è anche il migliore capitolo della tetralogia secondo me,con la sua atmosfera fantastica da "le mille e una notte" , abbandonata nei due capitoli successivi e ripresa a grandi linee da prince of persia the forgotten sands.
l'ho rigiocato su pc per avere una resa grafica migliore (ai tempi lo giocai su PS2) e devo dire che sono stato felicissimo di riprendere in mano un classico come questo.
consiglio a chi non ci ha giocato di recuperarlo è giocarselo.

This game is a classic. Years after it's release, it is still one of the best, engrossing game which makes you nostalgic. The combat is so fluidic and the story is itself is very good. The game has it's own problems of common camera misalignment, but when in doubt over whether to buy this game, you have my recommendation.
9/10 from me.

The game that changed my life forever. This masterpiece has it all:

- Amazing Story. (The plot is just a marvel.) 10/10
- Great Graphics. (I still can't believe this game was released back in 2003.) 10/10
- Fantastic Music. (The whole soundtrack was stunning. Perfectly scripted for every situation and utterly magnificent. Stuart Chatwood quickly became one of my favorite music composers.) 10/10
- Charming Voice Acting. (Yuri Lowenthal's voice alone was enough for the top score. The whole adventure is so beautifully narrated, so full of great ideas and outright perplexing figures of speech...) 10/10
- Addicting Gameplay. (A great mix of combat, acrobatic free-running and a some tricky puzzles.) 10/10
- Character Progression. (The game constantly updates the player with new powers, weapons and even clothing.) 10/10
- Diverse and Unique. (This game has some of the most beautiful surroundings I ever seen. Lots of unique enemies and locations to discover.) 10/10

This game is pure gold. The characters not only look amazing but they also feel... Alive. Totally different, each with it's own moral standing and their way of thinking. There is this good feeling when playing this game. Both the Prince and Farah are behaving as natural as it could get. They are very distant at the beginning, unmoved, cold. But as they make progress, they develop this feeling of mutual respect. Later on they become good friends. Joking and taunting each other in a very loving way. Check this monologue here:

"She said my love... I know she did. I didn't dream it... at least I think I didn't... It's quite natural really, her Kingdoms' conquered, she has nothing, no one to protect her. She needs me! I can see it in the way she looks at me. All I'd have to do is... Reach out and, take her hand... And she'd be mine! Why am I talking to myself ?!"

I have beat the game at least 5 times. Don't mind my Steam playing time. It was before I had purchased it here. And I don't regret a thing.

This game offers and unforgetable adventure. If you haven't still played it, do it. The best game in the franchise.



10/10

The best game in the world. That's it. It's not a long game, but it'll make you play over, and over and over again, and you'll like it even more as you continue to play.
Its script is very well thought, and counts with impecable voice-actors. The soundtrack is just the best one that there's.
Even now, after ten years, The Sands of Time is a flawless game. Every single person will enjoy it.

Honestly one of the best games I have ever played, The story line was magnificent, the atmosphere, it all drew you. However the constant changing view points have resulted in my death in the game quite a bit, nonetheless magnificent scenery and captivatng story. The gameplay was a bit shakey but very wonderful, leaping through the air from beam to beam tends to exite someone, and this game created that feeling.

The addition of the sidescroller prince of persia minigames was excelent.

There were a few issues with playing on steam however, I noticed that it lacked the ability to "shift+tab" while in game. The ability to "alt+tab" still remains however it is a tedious thing to tab out of a game for the purposes of a message.

I did enjoy the soundtracks but there were some moments where it would not play during a fight and then start again at random intervals. Nonetheless this did not make the fighting less intense.

In summary a very well made game, it is astonishing to believe it has really been ten years since I have played it on the ps2.
I recomend this game for anyone who likes a good story over graphics.
