TIME ONLY KNOWS

Серія Принц Персії бере свій початок, ще у далекому 1989 році. В той час гра вирізнялась з поміж інших платформерів своєю чудовою плавною анімацією, та незвичним геймплеєм. В грі було багато пасток, акробатики, секретів, та трошки ворогів, принцеса, злий Візир, та пісочний годинник, який невпинно рахував час до геймоверу. Це все, та багато іншого було надзвичайно якісно втілено в грі Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time розробниками з Ubisoft.

Сюжет гри починається з облоги замку індійського махараджи, військом Персії. Юний Принц йде в свій перший бій. Не гаючи часу він відправляється в скарбницю, за своїм першим бойовим трофеєм. Волею долі цим трофеєм став кинджал часу, який мав дістатись зраднику Візиру, в свою чергу Візир допоміг персам захопити замок, відчинивши ворота. Плани Візира руйнуються остаточно, кинджал часу тепер власність Принца, а пісочний годинник з піском часу, має стати подарунком султану Азаду. Прибувши до замку Азада, Візир відважується на нову зраду, обманом змусивши Принца відкрити годинник з піском часу. В результаті локального катаклізму, всі мешканці замку перетворюються на пісочних монстрів. Цієї участі уникають лише Принц, поневолена дочка махаражди Фара, та звісно ж Візир. Принц та Фара об'єднуються, щоб покласти край цьому жахіттю. Для цього їм потрібно закрити пісочний годинник, який знаходиться у самі високій вежі замку, в руках у Візира. В продовж гри ми будемо спостерігати розвиток взаємовідносин між Принцом та Фарою, від ненависті до кохання.

Геймплей гри базується на паркурі, головоломках, подоланні пасток та битвами з пісочними монстрами. Найбільше часу ми проведемо стрибаючи через прірви. Щоб гравці сильно не нервувались від постійних падінь Принца, розробники ввели перемотку часу. Принц у будь який момент може відмотати час назад на декілька секунд, щоб виправити свою помилку, вчасно відстрибнути від стіни, чи ухилитись від пастки, тощо. Але кинджал не є панацеєю від усіх проблем, на кожну маніпуляцію з часом витрачається пісок, який треба постійно поповнювати, шляхом вбивства монстрів. Наступним важливим аспектом гри є бої з монстрами. Монстрів досить багато, вони різні, та кожний потребує окремої тактики, але всіх їх об'єднує одне, їм можна вбити тільки кинджалом часу. З допомогою кинджалу, в бою ми можемо не тільки відмотувати час, але ще й заморожувати його, або заморозити монстра, та прискорити Принца. Дещо псує картину слабенька бойова система, та мала кількість прийомів, а також всього 2 боса. Майже весь час нас буде супроводжувати Фара, яка є не самою видатною лучницею, та частенько буде пускати стріли Принцу в зад. Нам доведеться не раз її захищати від монстрів, адже вона дуже вразлива, і теж має свою шкалу здоров"я.

Графіка на момент виходу гри була просто неймовірною, персонажі та оточення були чудово деталізовані, а новомодні фільтри, робили картинку більш соковитою. Але найбільше вражала анімація, при бігові по стінах, чи стрибках через ворогів розумієш, що Принц далеко не картонний, він має свою вагу, та піддається законам фізики, і це тут чудово відчуваються, трюки не здаються якимись нереальними, більшість з них легко можуть виконати паркуристи у реальному житті. Музика в грі чудово підкреслює казкову атмосферу.Усі треки підібрані чудово до різних ситуацій, від спокійних, романтичних мелодій, до швидких, бурхливих треків під час поєдинків. Східна музика у сучасній обробці. Саундтрек гри чудово слухається і поза грою, декілька композицій, вже давно в моєму трек листі.

Підводячи підсумки хочеться сказати, що перезапуск серії вдався, гра вміло балансує на класичних аспектах геймплею оригінальної гри, все це приправлено чудовим сюжетом, картинкою та музичним супроводом.

Продовження яке вийшло в наступному році, назавжди розділило фанатів Принца Персії на два ворогуючі табори....

Далі буде....

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 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!

I grew up partially with this game, I remember when it came out on PS2 years ago and just loving this game to pieces, it's not your usual linear adventure, it actually holds an interesting story with great character development and incredible gameplay, especially for the time it came out. Words can't describe how amazing the soundtrack is by Stuart Chatwood, really immerses you in the experience with catchy music overall, even though it's all instrumental. I really recommend this game to anyone looking for a great game to play. Honestly gets a 10/10 from me. Probably an 11/10.

*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.

Найкращий серед усіх Принців. Власне, усі наступні могли би і не зявлятись на світ.
Оригінальний нарратив, неймовірна атмосфера східної казки і просто нездорова увага до деталей - ось що робить цю гру, хай як би не дивно це звучало, живою.
Коли завіси у палаці хитаються від вітру, коли пил стелиться над підлогою, коли Принц перебирає ногами, міцно вчепившись за виступ, - тоді ти відчуваєш її, МАГІЮ східної казки.

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.

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.

The platforming is excellent but the combat only serves to break up the platforming elements and to buff the game length. Regardless of that issue this game is a favorite of mine and my favorite in the series.

Ever since I bought this game for the PS2 back when it was first released, this game is still one of the best games to play for PS2 AND PC. Fun puzzles and it is not too challenging, at the same time you have a dagger that can take you back in time, slow down enemies, and even collect sand to make you stronger. Another cool part is, it's in HD. The graphics are awesome and way better then the PS2 version. This game has it all and I recommend this game to anyone who loves adventures and puzzles.

The game has enchanting graphics. Each room and area has a gorgeous design and the platforming has been done well. The combat can get repetitive once you are long in the game even though they have tried to keep it fresh by introducing new enemies as we progress in the game. The story line is romantic, charming and gripping with its sense of adventure and loneliness. The puzzle solving is downright fun and the voice acting is awesome. This is one the best games ever to grace the consoles and PC. The score is extremely good with the Persian chorus and music; will have the gamers immersed completely in the game forgetting about the real world. A must play game. A classic forever
