Story


At the height of the glorious Persian king KayKavoos' reign, he had dominance over half the lands of his age. Seeking to cement his legend, he looked next to conquering the heavens.
Lashing a great sky chariot to four mighty birds, the lord of Persia ascended far above the earth.
Before the king's ambition could be fully realized, an angel appeared to quell his flight. But as the celestial creature prepared to strike down the Persian king, the glowing spirit of a child materialized.
“Stay your hand, angel! I am KayKhosro, this great king's yet-unborn son. If you destroy this man for his arrogance now, you destroy me! To rob him of his present would be to rob me of my future.”
The angel paused, considered the spirit's words, and sent the zealous King's chariot crashing down to the realm of Earth from whence it came.
“I am forbidden from severing your bloodline, and have returned your ancestor to his kingdom alive, but the burdens upon you are heavy, indeed.”
The angel embraced the spirit child, imparting these words.
“You will be born into an age of conflict, your ancestors beset upon each other with steel and cruelty, and your people will look to you for guidance. One day, evil will descend upon the borders of Persia, and you must be ready.
Now, rest, child. Your time has yet to come...”

It plays like an Early Access game, but it's not. Weird...

I gave it a chance, and it's a bad game. It had some potential, but it is so unbalanced. You're better off playing Torchlight I & II, or even one of the Adventures of Van Helsing games.

Summary
Legends of Persia is an action-RPG played from an isometric point-of-view, similar to Diablo or Torchlight . It is one of the most disappointing games I've played in years, with very few redeeming qualities.
Unless you obtain it as part of a bundle, it is not worth the price of entry.

Story elements
Original but underused setting
Original story, set in a part of the world that isn't often explored in videogames. However, the story is conveyed entirely via cutscenes and only the first one has voiceovers; the remaining dozens do not. The cutscenes are mostly exposition, and the gameplay barely feels connected to the story.

Cliffhanger ending
Game ends on a cliffhanger promising a sequel or an expansion. Remains unclear if it'll happen.

Brief longevity/replayability
Game it very, very short. A playthrough while watching the cutscenes is about 4-5 hours long. Replayability is almost non-existent.

Gameplay elements
Underwhelming loot
The weapons and equipment variety is extremely low for an action-RPG. I changed gear a total of 5 times from start to finish.

Very few skills
Skills variety is low. Descriptions don't update past the first level, making it impossible to know what leveling a skill to the second and third level does before investing points.

Unbalanced difficulty
Game difficulty is poorly balanced. Instead of fixing it, the developers added cheat codes to be invincible and skip levels...

Linear level design
Levels are very linear and exploration is not rewarded. There is no minimap.

English translation
It is rather obvious that the game wasn't developed by native English speakers, or translated by someone who had the skills to do so. In addition to numerous typos and grammar mistakes, sentences structure is often incorrect, making the story harder to follow. My favorite error is the game title: on Steam, it is called "Legends of Persia"; in-game, it is "Legend of Persia".

Technical details
Dated visuals
Graphics are dated and the aesthetics are bland and generic. Animations are sub-par.

Additional information
False promise
Editor promised in the Key Features section is unavailable.

This may not be a bad game, but I could find no desire to keep playing it after 20 minutes.

From the beginning the load times are atrocious. There were 3 times before I ever reached actual gameplay where I thought the game had crashed because I was just staring at a blank screen for over 2 minutes. The cutscenes at the beginning were beautifully drawn but shoddily stitched together and at one point there was a 3 second clip of in-engine gameplay that was completely inexplicable. Sometimes things were voice acted, other times I had to read the subtitles. Once I was finally given control, I was dumped into the most lifeless, barren, bland city I have ever scene. I must have wandered around a good 10 minutes before I finally saw the single object in the whole town I could interact with and when I clicked on him I sat for another 2 minutes staring at a black screen while the cutscene loaded (this time without any sound period). He made a bow and sword materialize behind me and I proceeded to roam the town with the objective “Finding the Gold” until my eyes finally began to bleed from the terrible aliasing and constipated character animations.

If I’m going to play an aRPG I would reinstall Path of Exile; Legends of Persia brings nothing to the table that would merit overlooking all of it’s awful design first impressions.

horrible game. it bugs out when travelling back through completed quest areas. it has an extremely basic skills tree/char development and plot. items are also very bland/generic with only 3 lines of modifiers and is no where near as detailed/varied as the diablo series. the graphics/animation and controls are also poor. its easy to get lost during each quest because theres no minimap (or any kind of map). stay away, they're better free games on the internet.

I'd rate this a 3/10.. closer to a FREE flash game than a $20 game.
