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...”

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.

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).

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.

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.

Legends of Persia isn't a bad game but you have to like the genre. If you like to explore a world and love to see your character grow, you will like this game. If you're looking for an RPG, it worths to play

Edit: after two days playing the game, I should add something more. The game has problem just in first 20 mins, I donno why they didn't care about it. After next lvl, I enjoyed skills, criticals, equipping items and ...

If you can play more than 20 mins, you will enjoy it.

If you hate yourself, this game is for you. A tedious journey through terrible graphics, a boring and completely forgettable story and controls that are awful. It feels like this game was made as some intro to game design project that they thought they could sell for $20. Even if I got this game for free, I'd want my time back. Unfortunately I paid actual money for this atrocity. As I write this, the gameplay video is streaming above. Watching it, It's like they sped up the gameplay to make the game actually appealing. I wish it moved that fast! In reality, you run around through bland, muddily textured environments and fight enemies named "Zombie_lvl3" in what feels like slow motion. The excitement never ends, folks.

I like supporting indie games and little known studios but when they put out crap like this at a high price point, it's extremely sad. If I was their gametester for this, I'd have strangled myself with my own mouse cable for having to play this so much and find bugs. This entire game is one large bug. The only people I can imagine enjoying this are ones who have never experienced a quality game experience IN THEIR LIFETIME. They're the ones who loved Superman 64 and ET for Atari. Even Atari hated ET so much they buried the game cartridges in the desert. There should be an equivalent to that for this game.

Move on, for you have been warned. You'll find dying in Dark Souls 10,000 times over is more appealing than 15 minutes in this nightmare.

While the game does start out a bit rough, the constant updates, the interesting story and the fact, that it's a nice Action-RPG, should make every Action-RPG lover take it for a spin.
There's no denying, that the game has a couple of flaws (typos mostly, which I'm trying to send to the devs), but in my opinion the game is satisfying for an indie project.

This is a copy of what i wrote about this game in the forums (i left out the horrible graphics as i thought that problem was way too obvious. also:if someone says that it's like diablo 2-> they blatantly lie. even diablo 1 had better standards UI/gameplay-wise than this):


My first experiences in this game


When I first started the game (after the settings, which kinda confused me with the "switch attack/run buttons" and the fact that it changes the resolution if you uncheck the fullscreen option) I watched the intro cutscene just to realize that my mouse speed has been altered (sped up)....is that supposed to be like this? and if yes? WHY?D:

anyway, i chose one of the character appearances (an actual model or a bigger picture would be nice...its quite small you know) and got started. I skipped the cutscene, got a loading screen just to experience....another cutscene. yay. Skip again. I found myself in a small town without a clue what to do (which was probably my fault as i skipped so much) so I run around looking what I could do. Shortly I finally knew what was meant with "attack/run buttons". Just...why couldn't it be like in most of the other games of this genre? why do you NEED to have 2 buttons for attack and run? I don't see the point. You can't change it either :/. Anyway, after a while I found someone with a "!" above his head. Thought i would get just a textbox i could click through to get some fast information but nope, another cutscene.(which i skipped. Is everything involving a dialog a cutscene in this game?I just want some quick info i can scroll through, not a cutscene that takes ages for each sentence :/)
After that, I finally got my first quest (or rather my second, as my first was to find that person as it seemed): get some gold. Now that (while searching for something to do) I already found some gold from destroying some debris etc. I actually thought my quest is already complete (since that guys "!" didnt change. could have been greyed out...). So after some reading in the quest log it turns out i have to go to some graveyard south east of town. first i thought it would be outside of town, buuuut it wasn't. after some enemy bashing i got tons of gold, brought that back to the quest-guy and got my next quest: An escort mission. yes. (everyones favourite).
so apparently i didn't know where to go, had suddenly the choice to get some kind of minion (which i just realized that those are fighting for me after reading the description of the LAST of them...)....oh and they also cost gold which hasn't been mentioned anywhere (didn't see it at least). after a while the to-be-escorted guy died and i had to start over, which was the point where i quitted.


other complains:
- why are things like "character"-button, "skills"button etc. in the skill bar??? they are neither skills nor items, so seperate them from the bar!
- i have NO CLUE what skills actually do damagewise. is 20 dmg much? does it scale with my other stats? what dmg does it on the next level? what level is required level up that skill? those infos are mandatory imho
-why does it tilt when i scroll in/out?
-could leave the city only with several tries as it felt like a forcefield stopped me from proceeding (maybe a bug?)
-clicking dropped items while npcs follow you is a complete mess. their boxes are HUGE
-also, also...why do dropped weapons have to be so gigantic?
-dropped misc item would probably be better displayed as a small bag instead of something that looks like a treasure chest full of potions (looked at least to me like one on first glance)


overall this "full game" rather feels like a pre-alpha of an early-game. Sorry but 20$ is NOT an appropriate price for this game.

1/10

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.

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.

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.

Where to begin. Oh boy. When i bought this game i thought to myself, hmmm this looks like a fun game. The screenshots look nice, it has RPG, Action, Indie, Adventure tags. What could go wrong? Everything. I am not a person who goes for graphic looks, they are the last thing i look in a game, but this game . . . this game. So much bugs. So much crashing and crashing and crashing and . . . did i mention crashing. The minor things like enemy names with underscores, enemy names ending with numbers like "zombie_lvl2_197" or something like that. Desynced cutscenes and constant crashes. Inventory bugs, like items randomly unequipping from a character slot, not being able to equip items at all and then crashing. Did i mention this game crashes. I really want to finish this game i really do. But it looks like the game does not want to be finished. The price tag for this game 19.99 Euros is ridiculous when the game is at the state it is now. I would understand if this was early access or alpha or beta. But this game is a finished product that . . . oh i hope i mentioned it before, CRASHES all the time. Until this game gets fixed i can't personally recommend this game to anyone.
