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...”

To be honest; They are WAY overcharging for this crap game. Persia is not really anyone's idea of "the coolest setting ever", to begin with, but the gameplay is just brutal. I couldn't get into the story due to its horrid gameplay.
Instead of buying this game, get yourself either the FREE Path of Exile, which is awesome. Or if you're looking for more of a story, I strongly recommend Van Helsing. I haven't beaten 2 yet to give you a good enough critique, but the first was(in my honest opinion) better than any of the diablos I've played.
Honorable mentions: The artists for this game obviously worked their tushies off, and I love the story telling aspect. But the programming and animating team should probably be REPLACED, or trained a lot better. Might I suggest Disney's Principals of animation? You'll be doing yourself an immense favor by learning from it. A programmer I am not, but from the dabbling I've done in UDK and Unity I have created more convincing and better programmed pieces of crap. Honestly though, the animation is probably worse than the programming. All I could say for programming is it felt like they were not compelled to do a better job, which I could understand to some degree, but they should have at least tried their best :/
Review END.

Bland, bad, boring.
Controls are sluggish, 3D models are choppy, textures were made without imagination.
I heard the story might be good if you give game a chance, but I won't risk it ;)
I heard item costumisation further into the game is quite good, but I won't try to check it.
The only good thing I see, are the cinematics (2D) - not that great in any manner, but many levels above the rest of the game.
I heard the game came from KickStarter. Pity.
The truth is, that You may even like it. I can belive it would fit some niche quite easily. But not for this horrendus price. But if You manage to catch it from some bundle (I gave 3$ for this and few other - better - games), don't hesitate to try it ;)

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.

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.

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).

Awful, absolutely awful. Very, very simplistic Diablo clone. Combat is a chore, having to hold down right click on each individual enemy to kill them one by one, with only skills that deal AoE damage able to kill more than one at a time. Graphics are very basic, and are hardly worth mentioning, and that hideous green effect that persists throughout a long portion of the beginning gets very annoying very quickly. Questing goes by horrifically slow, with even obtaining quests being a pain in the ♥♥♥. When you pick up a new quest, assuming can even find a one, you're greeted with a slow, boring cutscene instead of a quick and simple popup text window, almost ensuring that nobody will pick up the details because they'll feel an urge to skip that damned thing. I wish I were more eloquent when it comes to describing games, so that I could warn everyone else of this awful clone of a game better. THANK GOD I PICKED THIS UP IN A BUNDLE FOR ABOUT 3 BUCKS! Stay away from this game, and save your money for the Diablo 2 battlechest, or even Torchlight!

Recommendation - Only for the most rabid of ARPG fan with NOTHING else to play.

Whether you trust game critics or metacritic user scores or not, it says something about a game when not only are almost all the reviews for it negative, but only 2 of the positive ones have an hour hour play time. Seriously, go check out the reviews here in the community hub. Only TWO of them played the game for more than an hour. Odd, since you would think people that enjoyed the game would actually play it, right?

This review will be short, since this game is not even worth the time it would take to write a detailed review.

Put simply, everything about this game is sub-par. Graphics, sound, voice acting, cutscenes, animations, combat, load times, and even translation. There is nothing in this game at all that hasn't been done a hundred percent better (at least) by just about every other ARPG out there, often simultaneously.

Play Van Helsing 1/2 first. Play Torchlight 2 first. Play Grim Dawn first. Play Path of Exile first. Play Diablo 3 first. Sweet merciful LORD, play Torchlight 1 or Diablo 1/2 or Titan Quest or any other PC ARPG first. If you have old consoles, play Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance or Champions of Norrath first. If you have a PSP/Vita, play Dungeon Siege 2: Throne of Agony or either of the Untold Legends games first.

Play EVERY other game first. I got this game for about $0.20 in a bundle deal, and I can say I wouldn't play it even if it were free. It's not HORRIBLE (it... KINDA is...), but literally every other ARPG I have played in the past 5+ years has been more enjoyable, and we are not starved for choice in this day and age.

Discounting all the mechanics issues detailed in other reviews such as the clunkiness of the controls, the game is just plain unstable. During the time I played it (All the time on record here, guaranteed, won't be launching it again), I experienced 3 soft-locks, a bunch of AI glitchiness, and to top it all off, the game locked and hard faulted right back to the desktop. Can't recommend, it's not very fun to begin with, and coupled with all the glitched, it's unplayable.

Got stuck behind a wall 5 secs into the game and the cutscenes I saw before that were dangeriously boring. They ask 20 euros while the price should something closer to 2.

Gameplay is clunky as hell. Nothing works how it should (for some reason I could never have more than 1 spell equipped even though there were four empty slots). This game was terrible, glad I got it real cheap in a Humble Bundle at least.

I want to like this game, I really do. Unfortunately, the setting is not one that is very exiting for me, and one I don't particularly care for. That *may* taint my review of the game, so I am warning you beforehand. In terms of graphics, I would say they are "alright," but nothing that really screams out "Man, this game looks great!" Item placement on the maps (thus far) doesn't make much sense, and so far the environment is dull and lackluster. The UI is ugly, in my opinion, but servicable, it does what it is supposed to do. The character models are well done and well animated, but again, not very interesting. The cutscenes for dialogues get really annoying, really fast. You have to go by the speed of the cutscene if you want information, so if you read faster or slower than the text during the cutscene, you're pretty much SOL. And if you skip the dialogue scenes, you miss everything that is said, which is unfortunate. On the plus side, I really do like the art for the dialogue scenes.

Can I recommend this game? Not really. Unless you get it drastically reduced in price, you'll probably feel that your money is better spent on another game (like enjoying the first two Dungeon Siege games again, or playing Sacred or Sacred 2, or even Diablo 3 is far superior to this game.) Is it a horrible game? No, but there are much better (and often cheaper) alternatives that you may get more enjoyment out of.

WHAT? $13 for this game? You guys are serious? I thought it would be like 5-6 dollar game. I got the game in some bundle and decided to give it a try. Well, as many folks stated before me - this is NOT a good game. Yeah, the setting is somewhat unique.
But... Controls are horrible, game speed is horrible. The game itself feels like running Diablo III on ol' Pentium II computer. Want something good? Play any of Torchlight games. Cheers.

Terrible game. It's full of spelling mistakes, god-awful controls, huge lack of skills, the game crashes like crazy, and often.

I'd suggest staying away, even if it's only a couple dollars, I'd still say, save your money.

3/5 Average game !

First of all, don't be fooled by the cool cinematics, this game is abysmally different, it's like the devs hired an animation studio to do the cinematics and showed them none of the gameplay. This game is an average hack and slash, a Diablo 2 clone that's anything but memorable although it still manages to be fun if you don't set your standard to Diablo 3 kind of quality. You will beat it in about 5-6h and I don't think it's worth $20 (more like $5-8 IMHO) but if you're a fan of the genre or want a pretty simple hack and slash then you will have fun with the game as you progress.

The game lets you chose between 3 classes: melee warrior, ranged archer or mixed mage. So once I completed the game as a melee warrior I did play it as the other 2 classes and had my fair share of fun with it. A downside are the way the achievements are managed since if you beat the game on a hard difficulty you don't get the previous achievements as if you beat it on the easier difficulties, also there's an achievement for the First Boss that YOU WILL NEVER GET because the dev has stated that they have decided to permanently remove this boss, so bummer there for all the achievement ♥♥♥♥♥s around the world (such as myself).

You hack through a variety of enemies with melee, ranged and magic weapons (you can equip up to 2 at a time) and use mana on your magic powers (you can equip up to 4 at a time, also can invest on passive abilities too). As you level up you can spend some points on improving your character and making it more oriented to melee, ranged and magic to suit your preferences; each avatar is purely cosmetic since you can make your barbarian a warlock, turn the bow girl into a warrior princess or your mystic into a deadly marksman. This game has very simple mechanics and this may give you a good time if you're looking for a beat 'em up with some light mechanics.

Visually this game isn't on par with other games of the genre, that's OK by me although it makes a little bothersome to pay full price for a game that isn't remarkable on gameplay or story either, but we shouldn't be so hard on the game visuals since they aren't THAT bad either as some people have said. The loading screens and cinematics present some nice visual art but you NEVER see those characters ingame, nor you see the armors and weapons depicted in them, which is why I start the review by telling that the developers most likely hired a separate studio for the art that they display.

To be honest the story is just a nonsensical filler, I was really excited after seeing the opening cinematic but then found a pretty bland and uninspired story, quite confusing since I can't even remember the name of the character you are supposed to be playing, at some point I stopped trying to make any sense and thought that characters call you different names on each level as if you are just supposed to represent a different mythological persian character. So yeah... forget about getting an engaging story from this game.

The sounds are ok and the music isn't bad either, I can't complain nor praise the game's musical score, all I can say is that I wasn't bothered by it but wasn't lost in it either.

Absolute garbage. That a game like this exists at all is bad enough, but the fact it costs money - £14.99 currently! Thank Krom I got it from humblebundle for £3! - should be illegal. You want an action RPG? Get Path of Exile or Torchlight.

The movement animation is painful, movement is slow, attacks are AGONISINGLY sluggish. I used a bow when I ran out of health, and by the time I'd shambled out of range and tried to attack, I only got as far as nocking the arrow before I was surrounded and gibbed.

You can polish a turd, but the makers of this game didn't even do that. Avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid. 1/10 by virtue of it at least working well enough to run, though I'm not sure that's a positive.

This game is realy bad. I do recomend... stay clear of it. Unless you really are desperate for another Diablo clone.

The game does not look too good and the "feel" from it is even worse. I am not much into writing a review, so just some points which I realy hate about it:

- Ingame movies and even most dialogs are more like static images, taking over whole screen, some of them even does not have voice actings.. hm. not good.

- In game graphic and character and even enemy animation is prety decent, but the inventory graphic is prety ugly and small so it is hard to say what is what just from the look of it and I have to look at the popups. This makes the inventory hard tu use because there is absolutely unnecessary delay before description pops-up. and I did not found any way how to check the items in any other way. Also not good.

Character control feels "lagy" - its like you click to attack and the character thinks an half a second before doing so. It is even more noticeable with ranged attacks. And if you decide that you need to move away during an attack animation, it gets cut of in the very moment, which looks very very ugly. And well, this is also true for enemies - most noticeable is it in the first (second?) boss fight when using a bow. This is not only ugly, but it also makes the bow usage a bit hard against the bos, because he just break of his atack and continue chasing you as soon as you gets out of range. This is not so ba as it sounds, it is mostly ugly/strange, but for me it is another negative point.

Also interaction with game world is bit problematic - you need to click very precisely when you want to pick up something from the gorund. You can not actualy click the item itself, but you must click the ground in a place when your chjaracter will end up standing exactly over that item before he pick it up, which is sometimes really hard... this makes me angry very easily and it is probably because of this that I will not play the game anymore...

Well, to summ it up: I am really sorry that I can not give this game to someone who will be able to apreciate it, because I definitely can't.
