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...”

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.

I'm sorry, I really wanted to like this game, especially since there are so few games that actually deal with Persia and its mythologies (Prince of Persia notwithstanding), but I cannot in good faith recommend this game to anyone. There's no actual randomized items, no deep character development, and the story looks interesting but sounds like it was badly translated. All together, the game comes across as bare-bones, it functions like its still in its development stages (hell, it probably is considering), and you really don't get bang for your buck. Thankfully I got this during the steam sale, so my wallet wasn't hit too bad, but still, unless the developers release a HUGE update that actually makes like it like an actually finished game, I don't think I have the strength to finish it. Plus, going by the achievements, its not very lengthy anyhow. Sorry folks, but look elsewhere for your hack'n'slash'n'cast'and gunnin fix.

If you purchase this game expecting Diablo III or Torchlight II set in a Middle-Eastern world, you will be horribly disappointed. I backed the game on kickstarter thinking it would be exactly that - a mid-east Diablo II clone. Initially I was put off by what seemed to be an overly simplistic game, as everything seemed to be rather generic. However, if you play on, the game gains more complexity - equipment gains stat modifiers for example. Legends of Persia is actually a fairly decent ARPG.

The graphics are not great by modern standards, but they are not as terrible other reviewers say. I guess people tend to forget that many of the games people loved that influenced this game (Diablo I & II, Divine Divinity, Siege of Avalon) look horrible by modern standards. In a forum I saw someone compare this game to RAW. This game is no where near as bad as that turd.

While I like the game, I believe that the average steam consumer probably would want to pick this game up when it is on sale because it does not compare favorably to some of the other games available on steam in the same genre.


What is interesting to me is that the game studio is based in Tehran. The story is based on a legendary prince of ancient Persia. Personally I believe that cultural engagement with the Middle East is important, and do not at all mind having paid full price for this game. I also believe that this game studio is capable of improving and doing better. Instead of giving up on the game after 10-15 minutes, play the game and give the studio constructive criticism.

This game is very very bad. It's a very poorly made diablo clone, everything is glitchy and laggy, nothing's really thought out or balanced, the game art is terrible (though i swear they worked harder on the cut scenes than the rest of the game combined).

I got this from a $2 bundle and I feel ripped off. This is a terrible game. The combat is so slow the mouse feels super weird and picking anything up is awkward. There isn't even a real options menu. Don't buy this game let alone at full price.
