Über dieses Spiel

Das von Kritikern gefeierte Prince of Persia® Franchise ist wieder da - zum ersten Mal mit einer brandneuen epischen Reise für Next-Generation Platforms.
Vom preisgekrönten Ubisoft Montreal Studio, den Machern von Assassin’s Creed™, wurde Prince of Persia über drei Jahre lang entwickelt, um Ihnen ein komplett neues Action-Abenteuer anzubieten.
Prince of Persia bietet Akrobatik in Kombination mit Action- und Abenteuer und wird mit Sicherheit einer der Verkaufsschlager der Weihnachtssaison 2008. Ein Prinz in neuestem Grafikdetail, eine komplett neue Geschichte, atemberaubende Schauplätze, ein neuartiges Kampfsystem, ausgezeichnete Spielgrafik und der neue Charakter 'Elika', einem neuen tödlichen Verbündeten.
  • Ein neuer Held entsteht: Meistern Sie Akrobatik, Strategie und Kampftechniken des agilsten Kriegers aller Zeiten. Halten Sie sich an Gebäudefassaden fest, üben Sie perfekt abgepasste akrobatische Bewegungen und schwingen Sie über Canyons, Gebäude und alles was sich in Ihrer Reichweite befindet. Dieser neue, aggressive Krieger muß alle seiner Fähigkeiten gekonnt einsetzen und ein komplett neues Kampfsystem perfekt anwenden können, um Ahriman’s korrupte Leutnants zu bekämpfen, das Land von der dunklen Korruption zu befreien und Gerechtigkeit wiederherzustellen.
  • Der Beginn einer neuen epischen Geschichte: Entfliehen Sie in diese fantastische Welt des alten Persiens. Einzigartige Geschichten und weitläufige Umgebungen werden Ihnen ein Action Abenteuer darbieten, das es mit den besten Hollywood Filmen aufnehmen könnte.
  • Eine neue offene Weltstruktur: Erstmals im Prince of Persia Franchise — werden Sie die Freiheit besitzen, zu bestimmen wie das Spiel sich in diesem unvorhersehbaren Abenteuer entwickelt. Spieler werden selbst entscheiden, wie sie die Geschichte lösen, indem sie den eigenen Weg in einer offen gestalteten Welt wählen.
  • Das Erscheinen eines tödlichen neuen Verbündeten: Der beste Verbündete der Geschichte kommt mit Elika ins Spiel, einer dynamischen Begleiterin, die sich mit dem Prinz in seinem Kampf zusammentut, die Welt zu retten. Ausgestattet mit magischen Kräften, wirkt sie auf den Spieler während der Kämpfe, der akrobatischen Tricks und der Lösungsfindung ein und ermöglicht damit dem Prinzen, neue Höhen an tödlicher Kunstfertigkeit durch spezielle akrobatische Bewegungen im Duell oder verheerende Kampfattacken im Team zu erreichen.

This game is not compatible with the Steam Controller to the extent that it will cause the game not Launch... Period!

The game itself seems funny, and wonderfully designed. Easy controls, however; has an obnoxious tutorial that you'd except EA, except this one follows you throughout the gameplay for some reason.

I got this game on PS3 in 2010 for 5 dollars. And from that I like this game, even today. But I don't know if I could really recommend this for everyone. To collect 1001 light orbs, backtracking and repetive acrobatic elements are sometimes painful and anooying to sit through. You don't have to collect all 1001, but the reward is two alternative costumes for the Prince and Princess, that what I heard somewhere are prototype or alpha versions.

I enjoyed the atmosphere with the middle-eastern architecture, music, character design and combat system. The story is not bad, nothing much else to add than it's simple and easy to follow.

I'd recommend this game to you if you love adventure games.

Not your classic beat-em-up Prince of Persia game. However if you like more platform puzzle games for their story than their challenge (this game is easy) this game is fabulous. Highly recomended for relaxing/frustrating on decent levels.

The Sands of Time Trilogy has the best game-story ever made. After the Trilogy this Prince of Persia has second best game-story in my opinion. Fighting against a God which he is immortal, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent. Awesome musics, very cool fighting scenes.

To be honest, I expected a much worse game, cause it has the reputation of the black sheep of the PoP franchise (along with Prince of Persia 3D).
It may be not as good as the Sands of Time trilogy, but it's a fun, entertaining game, with some serious flaws that you can accept and surpass, if you really want to. Yes, it's repetitive, yes, the story takes too long to make any sense, yes, the animation could have been a bit more polished, but it still is a pretty good Prince of Persia game.
Its most important flaw is that Ubisoft tried to pass it as a PoP reboot, and fans couldn't accept that they should leave their favorite dark Prince for that light-hearted anime character. If it was called something like Prince of Persia: Orient and was promoted as a parallel game, it would have been greeted much nicer.

I love the POP series, but this game is a repetitive chore. There is nothing of interest in this game. You climb the same exact areas, the same exact level designs, collecting shiny orbs, with an occasional "boss" battle. It is an insultingly lazy game. Ubisoft did not care one bit about the game itself, the orb collecting and area opening aspect of the game, which is the biggest part by far, is the most boring thing ever in a game. The prince's and Elika's relationship is by far the best aspect of the game, but honestly the game is not worth playing for that reason alone. The only positve thing I can say about the game is the cellshaded graphics, and the general art direction. Other than that, just pass this one, it's not worth the money. 4/10

This game is great for someone who's more comfortable with a 360 controller than I. The QTEs (quick time events) are essential to beating some bosses and they are VERY quick, even for some non-boss fights. nothing is more frustrating than failing simple QTEs because you haven't memorized the colors for the layout of the 360 Controller and using the coresponding keyboard keys.

Otherwise the stroy is fun, a bit far from the past titles though :/

Great little gem, although a Prince of Persia game only in name.

+ Beautiful stylish graphics, voice acting and musical score (the best out of the PoP games).
+ Great characters and simple plot, easy to let yourself invest in what's going on and get emotional attachment
+ Mix of platforming and cool powers
+ Genuinely funny and charming
- Sometimes repetitive
- Awkward camera angles

The ending will leave you in the same state as Shadow of the Colossus

TL;DR: Middle Eastern Parkour Simulator

I played the game originally on the Xbox 360 when it first came out and enjoyed it. Since I didn't get to finish it there, I wanted to play it on the PC.

Pros:
  • Looks beautiful, especially after you have cleansed an area. There's lots of really nice Middle Eastern architecture to look at and a nice ambience overall. Best played with the lights off to get the full effect.
  • Occasionally funny dialogue between the protagonists.
  • Puzzles can be challenging at times, I wish there were more.

Cons:
  • No non-boss enemies. You don't really fight anything that isn't a boss like animals or other hostiles. You can't use your sword outside of battle to cut stuff or anything.
  • No depth to fighting style. Essentially, you can get away with continually hitting the attack button and dodging the enemy. There aren't any real combos other than magic/sword/magic. You don't learn any new moves or get any new weapons as you progress.
  • Light seed collection can get repetitive.
  • When you fall off, you go back to last piece of level ground you were standing on, which could have been really far back, forcing you to repeat the jumping sequence you just did.
  • Story could use a little tweaking.

Other:
  • You can't seem to die. Ever. Falling off ledges, almost getting skewered by the Hunter, getting sucked up into goo . . . everytime you will be saved by Elika. Even when she is trapped by one of the enemies! She can't free herself, but some how can reach across the arena and grab your arm.
  • I hope you like parkour because there's a lot of it. Sometimes it's fun and fluid, especially when you have a good rhythm going.
  • There's quick action sequences during boss fights reminiscent of Resident Evil 4.

Overall, this isn't the type of game I see myself playing for several days in a row, but more of a game I come back to whenever I need to take a break. I still recommend it though.

Note: I have never played any other PoP game before this one, so I can't compare it to previous installments in the franchise.

Trotz altbewährter Masche: Gut gegen Böse, Licht gegen Dunkelheit, landet Ubisoft mit Prince of Persia (Achtung: Kein Teil der Klassischen Sands-Of-Time-Tetralogie!) einen Megahit. Die Entwickler der Final Fantasy Saga im Boot ein Spiel zu entwickeln, dass auf der bereits bekannten Assassins' Creed Scimitar-Engine basiert ist keine Kunst. Dafür aber der Grafikstil. Die Entwickler bedienten sich hierbei dem Illustrative Art Style, welchen Entwickler Ben Mattes als comicartig und an Konzeptarts erinnernd beschrieb Defintiv ein Hingucker und alleine deswegen ein Highlight in jeder Game-othek!
Auf seiner langen und wohl nie enden wollenden Reise kämpft sich der Prinz durch ein verlorenes Land, wo er auf eine Prinzessin stöst, die scheinbar auf der Flucht ist. Schnell stellt sich heraus, dass die Schergen ihres Vaters hinter ihr her sind und ihr Vater von irgendetwas besessen scheint. Die Dunkelheit bricht aus einem uralten (und btw wudnerschön gestalteten Tempel) aus und übernimmt die Welt. Alles in Schatten getaucht und mit Finsternis verseucht, kämpfen sich Elika und der Prinz nun durch das Land und befreien Stück für Stück das verlorene Königreich.
Die gute Synchronisation mit bekannten Sprechern wie Simon Jäger (Deutsche Stimme von Heath Ledger, Matt Damon und Jet Li) und Katja Liebing (Deutsche Stimme von Rose McGowan, Amy Adams, et al.) gibt der Geschichte erst richtige Sympathieträger.

Das Spiel hinterlässt einen nach dem Ende mit einem etwas unwohlen Gefühl. Das Ende ist etwas anderes und setzt einen Punkt, der eine Fortsetzung dieses Game-Franchises nicht möglich macht. Eine herzergreifende Geschichte von Gut und Böse, die btw auf der echten Persischen Mythologie basiert (deutlich mehr als die ausgedachte Sands-of-Time-Serie).

Empfehlung für Fans der Sands-of-Time-Serie ist es dennoch; Fans von Grafikstyles, die den Grundstein für Borderlands et al. setzten und ein dringendes Must-Have für Spielesammler, die Wert auf ein Stück Fantasy des nahen Ostens legen.

zu Beginn gleich mal gesagt, Spieler die eine Herausforderung suchen, oder abwechslungsreiches Gameplay sind bei diesem Spiel falsch.

Prince of Persia 2008 hat eine schöne, abwechslungsreich gestaltete Spielwelt und 2 coole Charaktere. Vor allem der namenlose Prinz überzeugt wie immer mit coolen Sprüchen, treudoofen Aussagen und schöner deutscher Synchronstimme.
Auch Elika ist gut gelungen. Die zwei geben sich in Punkto dumme Sprüche nichts, denn Elika hat auf jeden dummen Kommentar des Prinzen einen Konter.
Das Zusammenspiel der Charaktere ist auch prima gelöst. In vielen Spielen ist der zweite Charakter immer ein wenig störend, aber hier ergänzen sie sich ziemlich gut.

Zum Gameplay sonst ist nicht viel zu sagen. Springen, an Wänden laufen, Springen, mal ein kleines Kämpfchen. Auch die Rätsel sind simpel, von den Bossen ganz abgesehen. Ich finde es ist ein spiel für Zwischendrin.

Das Rumgehüpfe macht Laune, die Kämpfe sind immer wieder ganz lustig, und die Konversationen sind niedlich und witzig. Für einen günstigen Preis kann man sich das Spiel wirklich gönnen. Ich empfehle aber für die PC Version einen XBOX 360 Controller zu benutzen.

Prince of Persia (2008) ist ein tolles Spiel mit einer hervorragenden deutschen Sprachausgabe.
Sehr humorvoll ohne albern zu wirken, etwas Märchenhaft aber dennoch eine sehr erwachsene Story + Dialoge. Einfach top!
Auch die Grafik und die Animationen sind wirklich gut gelungen.
Die Kämpfe stören eher den Spielfluss, die Bossfights brauchen zum Teil (nicht immer) eine spezielle Taktik, dennoch wiederholen die sich zu oft.

PoP ist ein wunderschönes Spiel, welches sich perfekt mit Maus und Tastatur steuern lässt. Da sollten sich andere Hersteller mal eine Scheibe von abschneiden. Der F okus liegt bei diesem PoP Spiel aber eindeutig auf dem klettern und erkunden der Level, gekämpft wird relativ selten, was mir persönlich sehr gut gefällt.
Daher kommt es mir wie ein 3D Jump'n run mit toller Story und klasse Dialogen zwischen dem Prinzen und seiner Begleiterin vor. Klare Kaufempfehlung von mir, ich würde 8/10 Punkten geben.
Kaufen!

Pro:
+ Schöne Grafik
+ klasse Sprachausgabe, tolle Dialoge
+ perfekte Steuerung mit Maus und Tastatur (Gamepad habe ich nicht getestet)
+ Sympathische Charaktere (Prinz und Elika)
+ tolle Animationen
+ keine Bugs
+ Spielt sich sehr flüssig
+ Klettern macht Spaß
+ Toller Soundtrack
+ lange Spieldauer (ca. 15 h)

Kontra:
- Kämpfe stören die Spielfluss
- Kämpfe immer gleich
- häufiges Backtracking (was abgemildert wird durch die Tatsache, dass man nach und nach in bekannten Levels vorher nicht zugängliche Stellen erreicht)
- Epilog DLC gibts nur für die Konsole, nicht für den PC

Prince of Persia is a beautiful game and it's a lot of fun to play. The controls are simple and make all the well animated jumping and running easy to pull off. The graphics are very beautiful, almost like playing in some kind of painting.

The game is rather easy, since you can never die. If you fall or miss your jump, your partner Elika will pull you back onto solid ground. If you start to lose in a battle, she will pull you to safety, knocking the enemy back. However, the enemy will regain some of it's lost health for doing so. To me, this is a really great option. Sometimes games are just meant to be fun, and not so much to provide a hardcore challange that will only end up frustrating.

Combat is fun and smooth, with great attack animations. You can attack with your sword, you can grab an enemy, and you can let Elika attack. You can combo all sorts of beautiful moves together to make for an awesome fight scene. None of the bad guys should really give you too much trouble, especially since right before you would "die", a button will pop up and if you press it in time you avoid the "final" blow, so that way Elika doesn't have to save you and the enemy's health stays where it's at.

The environments are great to look at. The world starts off all dark and dreary with corruption, but as you heal the lands, everything becomes bright and green and lush again.

Most of the time you'll have to go through an area twice, once to get to the fertile ground so you can heal it, and then you'll probably want to go through it again after it's been healed so you can collect all the Light Seeds lying around. You collect Light Seeds in order to "buy" special powers that Elika can use for platforming, which allows you to get to new areas.

The voice acting and script of the game are not top-notch, but are certainly passable. Personally, I found the soundtrack and plot incredibly pleasing.

Overall, Prince of Persia is quite fun; however, it is not for those who don't want to relax. Challenge-seekers will be severely disappointed, and those looking for excitement will also be let down. For those who seek a fun and relaxing experience in a richly textured world, on the other hand, Prince of Persia is the game to play.

The 2008 reboot of Prince of Persia has already gone down in history as a weird specimen, an odd game that was disliked by the series' fans and that Ubisoft hastily tried to sweep under the carpet. As such, I approached the game with a mix of curiosity and caution.

What I found was a beautiful, mesmerizing experience.

The graphics and the music are striking, from the first moment. I understand that the game extensively cell-shaded appearance can be a love-it-or-hate-it experience which won't appeal to everybody, yet I found the game atmosphere beautiful and enticing. Every scenery is wonderfully drawn, and every moment it feels like you are watching a fairy tale unfold before your eyes. I found myself stopping every now and then to look around and visually explore the enviroment around me, taking the time to appreciate the details of the level rather than just calculating where I should aim my next jump.
The rendition of the Prince is also my favourite, so far. Having played through the original Prince of Persia, back in the MS-DOS days, and also through the whole "Sands of time" trilogy, I must say I like this version of the Prince the most. This has mainly to do with the Prince's attitude. There is no sense of urgency in this game, no running against the clock, no being pursued by a deadly monster, no ambition, or thirst for power driving the game's protagonist. He simply stumbled upon an ancient evil which is about to be unleashed; however, he still has all the time in the world to stop him. He embraces the adventure he suddenly found himself in and just goes with the flow, always smiling, always relaxed. When controlling the Prince, you can rush from one level to the next, pursuing enemies, or you can stop and go for a walk through the desert under the moon: nobody's coming at you. This is your story, have it your way.

Speaking about the actual gameplay, a great deal of criticism stems from its dumbed-down difficulty. In fact, there is no "game over" screen, as there is no way to die. Whenever you fall to your death, you witness a cutscene where Elika saves you instead. This is merely a convenience, though: each time you see the cutscene, you know you screwed up; only you don't have to worry about saving, reloading or continuing. To me, that's perfectly fine.
Coming from the "Sands of time" trilogy, the difficulty of navigating treacherous environments feels reduced as well. There are no spikes or deadly contraptions you have to avoid, most envirnomental hazards are about well-timed jumps and avoiding falls. The controls are easy to master, and there is some amount of auto-pilot helping you navigate the most treacherous parkours. All in all, navigating a level feels more relaxing than challenging, although you will sometime need several attempts to figure out how to traverse a difficult section.

The combat system is maybe this game biggest flaw. There are very few enemies scattered throughout the game, so virtually every fight will be a boss fight. You cannot die, but each time you are saved by Elika, your opponent has a chance to recover some life, protracting the battle longer. Fighting in this game is mostly about quick-time events and stringing together your attacks in a long combo, in order to maximize damage. Then it's parrying and ducking, until you can start a combo again. The whole control system seemed stiff here, and whenever I though I had an opening to start a combo I ended up being hit instead. All in all, I never developed a good feeling with the battle system, and boss battles degenerated in a chore rather than a fun experience.

Ultimately, this game might not be for players or long time series fan who are looking for a challenge, but I think its visual style and atmosphere earn this title a place in any gamer's collection. It looks and feels like a remarkable work of art; and each time you complete a level, you watch the scenery transform around you, feeling a genuine sense of reward for your efforts. I definitely recommend to try this one out.

Having already beaten this game in 2008, I remember loving everything about it, the graphics, the voice acting, the gameplay... everything was perfect. So the idea was to instal and play a relaxing game while I wait for Arkham Knight to get released.

Well, the 2008 me was kinda wrong... the combat in this game is just awful and cringe inducing, I have no idea what they were thinking when they made it so that you're blocking 70% of the time, with maybe 15% of free fighting, and 15% quick time events/button mashing. Maybe they were trying to make it harder artificially when they realized the game was too short and fun and easy, I don't know... but I wish the game had 0 combat and more environmental puzzles to fill in the blanks. Luckily though, there are not a ton of fights in the game, so they don't completely destroy the mood.

The controls could be a bit tighter, but they aren't horrible, they work... I mean it's a Ubisoft parkour game, you can't expect anything more out of it really.

The story is next to non-existent and that's OK. You're looking for a donkey, but instead you find a princess, now help her save the world... c'mon man, do it! She may not be a donkey, but she's hawt.

The game came out in 2008, and it looks absolutely amazing even by today's standards, with maybe some stiff animations and facial expressions that wouldn't be present if it were released today.

All in all, if you love and miss Playstation 2 era platformers, this game might just tickle your nut$@ck. - 7.5/10

An underrated blast.

It may be very different to the other Prince of Persia games, but thats what makes it stand out to me. Most people complain about how you can't actually die in this game, however most people don't seem to realise that Elika saving you whenever you 'die' is just a replacement for the sands of time in the original trillogy (The time reversing mechanic).

The writing is funny and it's great to look at too. My only complaint is that the combat can be too simple at times, the ability to fight more than one enemy at once would have spiced things up!

This game is great!

A rather underappreciated game that fails to innovate like previous installments in the series have, yet, it delivers a thrilling adventure, beatiful enviroments, great platforming and parkour experience. This, mixed with a lackluster fighting system it gets a solid recommendation.

While the game itself is not on par with the Sands of time trilogy in terms of fighting mechanics, it sure delivers a story that will stick, a beatiful, cel shaded world that encourgaes to explore through the platforming system that is as satisfying as always.

It feels like Ubisoft took a hasty look at The Two Thrones, threw all mechanics out the window and started fresh with everything but the core of the franchise. The instant revival system that recieved a tsunami of hate is there, yes, however this is not necessarily a bad thing. While the fact that you get pulled from every jump you miss shortens the game somehwhat, it gives the more casual gamers a try to get involved in this massive laborynth called gaming.

7/10 - Great bang for the buck

As a fan of the Prince of Persia™ franchise, I just couldn't miss this one. And it blew my mind.


This game was just what I needed. Like a ray of pure light it purged the ideas of blood, brutal violence, and gory deaths. This particular game was full of magic. And when I say magic, I mean it. The world is just beautiful. Filled with gorgeous landscapes such as: huge mountains, shining rivers, caves and caverns, flowery plains and other delightful sights. And that's just the "nature" part. There are also a large number of beautifully designed buildings. Some go deep underground, and others reach the throat of the world. Which is both beautiful, and impressive. Especially when there is a Day/Night cycle. And the nights are full of wonders.


The new protagonist is a nameless adventurer in search of fortune. Which, even though called a Prince, is not one. The adventurer is accompanied by an Ahura named Elika, whose race has forsaken the duty given to them by the god of light, Ormazd, and intend to set free the main antagonist, Ahriman. Ahriman is the god of darkness who was imprisoned by Ormazd. The game is a constant fight between the forces of Lights and Darkness. In order to entrap Ahriman and his 4 Corrupted followers once and for all.


Most of the gameplay is still intact. The player can use the Prince character's acrobatic prowess, sword, and gauntlet, as well as magic from Elika to perform combat and acrobatic feats variously throughout the game. Which not only looks stunning, but also causes more damage if you chain all the attacks together. The game features open world exploration that allows the player to travel to any spot in the game world at any given point, and lets the player witness the plot in any way they want. The traps are manifested in various forms of the antagonist Ahriman's Corruption. Black-colored blobs that coat the land and swallow the player if touched. The player can use acrobatic maneuvers to avoid these traps. And after they heal the land, the traps are purged completely.


The player can not conventionally "die" in Prince of Persia. Rather, when an enemy is about to strike the finishing blow, or The Prince presumably falls to his death, Elika saves him. But by doing this, the enemy has time to regain it's health. The combat is tricky at first, but when you get the hang of blocking and deflecting attacks, you won't go down anymore.


The voice acting is probably my favorite part of this game. As soon as the Prince started talking, I knew it was Nolan North. And the game would be full of jokes, witty comments, and funny remarks. And boy, I laughed my face off. Elika was serious about the imminent apocalypse, while the Prince was joking around most of the time, making this adventure less tensioned. Take a look at this:


Prince: I hope that hurt!
Elika: He can’t hear you.
Prince: He can’t?! And you're an ugly mother too!
[Elika gives him a look]
Prince: What?


Or this:


Elika: Tell me about your family.
Prince: I don't have a family.
Elika: Well, you come from somewhere.
Prince: Yes, and I'm going somewhere else.



Although I find Yuri Lowenthal's voice more charismatic and touching, I cannon resist Nolan North's. His voice created so many amazing characters...


Alright, last one:


Prince: Want to play a game ? Come on, it'll be fun !
Elika: The World's about to end and you want to play a game ?!
Prince: Might as well die happy.
Elika: What sort of game is this ?
Prince: Well, I see something and you have to guess what it is.
Elika: How can I guess that ?
Prince: You just guess.
Elika: Grass.
Prince: No.
Elika: Rock.
Prince: No.
Elika: This is a stupid game.
...
Prince: Want another go ?
Elika: No... Path.
Prince: No.
Elika: This is impossible !
...
Prince: The game would be easier if we played it by the rules.
Elika: There are rules ?
Prince: Yeah. I tell you the first letter.
Elika: Then why didn't you do that ?
Prince: You didn't give me a chance.
Elika: *sigh* Can we get to the Fertile Ground ?
...
Prince: S.
Elika: Are you still playing that game ?
Prince: S.
Elika: Sky.
Prince: Hey! You got it! Okay, your turn.
...
Prince: Come on, your turn.
Elika: For what ? Uhm... C.
Prince: Corruption.
Elika: Yes. Can we go on ?
...
Prince: S.
Elika: Sky again ?
Prince: Now you're getting it !
Elika: You picked 'sky' again ?
Prince: No, but you're getting the hang of the rules.
Elika: Ah, thanks, they're so complex I was worried they might evade me.
...
Prince: S.
Elika: Scar.
Prince: No.
Elika: Scarf ?
Prince: No.
Elika: Shrine ?
Prince: Aha! No.
Elika: I give up.
Prince: It's too soon to give up.
Elika: I give up !
Prince: Soulless Follower of Ahriman !
Elika: I am amazed no one threw you overboard on your sea trips.
...
Prince: G.
Elika: Are you still playing ?
Prince: G !
Elika: Gauntlet.
Prince: Yes !
Elika: You wanna make this game harder ?
...
Prince: Wanna play the game again for forfeits ?
Elika: No.


I was even laughing while I was re-checking the text again. Ubisoft, thank you for choosing Nolan North.


Now the music. Stuart Chatwood and Inon Zur, my favorite composers. They created this amazing, vibrant music for the game. Both epic and fantastic. When you are roaming around the plains, and other healed ground. A soft, relaxing, light music is playing. And when a fight starts, the drums and flutes are pulsing and come crashing down. Both of these create the perfect atmosphere.


As I said, this game is just stunning. Full of adventuring, jokes, fights, flights, magic, beauty, and romance too. I had so much fun playing it, and I still do. I recommend this game to everyone who enjoys an epic adventure.


10/10
