To all the naysayers: This game does not deserve it's "mixed" rating. It's a great game and it's even a good PoP game. I literally can't find much fault here. The game is unpatched (v 1.00) yet I've encountered not a single bug. The prince moves and fights smoothly and responds well to commands. I've only encountered a handful of times in which I wanted to do something that he did not (usually that's wall jump instead of wall run or vice versa, which has always been a problem). There's everything here that makes an interesting game: good platforming, interesting mechanics, devious traps and relatively diverse combat, though this is still the weakest part of the game (but thankfully after having played Sands of Time right before this one it's nowhere near as bad and actually quite enjoyable). People complain that there is no block don't need it in this game. Simple as that.

The platforming is extremely smooth and there are enough mechanics introduced throughout the game (about 8 hours in total) that it won't get boring. You have a few boss fights, mini bosses, etc. The story is actually rather interesting as well, though here is my one and only real gripe with the's a pre-sequel. It's PoP 1.5 instead of PoP 4 for example or just an entirely new game. It interjects the overall story arch with something that wasn't necessary in my opinion and since it's about 8-13 years newer than the rest of the games it takes you out of the immersion (it's weird going from 2003 to 2010 and then back to 2004 and 2005). Apart from that I can only recommend this one. It looks good, plays seemlessly and has an interesting story.

Personally loved it!
Comparison with the sands of time trilogy is unavoidable, so let's see:
-Story and characters are okay, alas not at the same level as previous games. Let's just say they keep the narrative going for the game, but they are not going to be a shining beacon in the videogame world. Trap comedy never gets old for Ubisoft.
-Platforming - absolutely the greatest achievement of the game. It keeps the Sands of Time trilogy basic format, adding here and there some of the features we'd seen in the reboot, plus all-new mechanics which make it so much deeper, and in my opinion better than any of the old ones. It even makes up for the need for uPlay....Ah, yes, of course, there's uPlay... *sigh*
-Combat is the hard one. So... love it or hate it, I guess. The fighting system is completely different than before: it's not anymore as acrobatic and varied combo-wise as the old trilogy, but hey, if you're into cleaving through a swarm of enemies with large swipes and the occasional roll-out-of-trouble, this might suit you well. I'm personally pretty ok with the chosen style. If you played the others for the combat though, this may not be the game for you. The powers one can acquire, always in my opinion, all in all are fun and useful, probably more than the sand powers we were used to. Fights get a bit dull, as per usual, at the end with the acquisition of the ever-present "water-sword-of-the-day".

Average game can be played as a stressbuster. Average story, average combat system. Nothing much has been changed from its former Sands of Time game in the area of combat and aerobics. Play if you have free time or love Prince of Persia franchise.

If you're a fan of the Sands of Time or Warrior Within then this game is a mustn't have!

The game takes you back seamlessly to the Princes brother's kingdom in Azad (Did you know he had a brother? I didn't know he had a brother!) where you go through the necessary tutorials to understand just how awful the controls in this game are. The basic controls are all there; jump, roll, strike, run up walls... block isn't one of them, because apparently it isn't useful when you're fighting several dozen enemies at once, with an arrogant sword combo so slow it gives you an extra half second every strike just to appreciate how much you hate the game. Oh and it's just the one weapon, no several weapons, no stealing them from monsters, or using them to throw at enemies, or infact throwing enemies at other enemies (Come on, we all did it), no instead the Prince relies on a much more effective stategy of kicking them. Yep kicking them, oh and apparently all that awesome jumpy acrobatic mid air strikes stuff just wasn't cool enough to continue. Then again this is probably for the best as Prince has difficulty moving correctly because the controls are so poorly calibrated (or at least different from the previous 3 games) made worse by the AWFUL automatic camera showing you various angles of walls and the Prince's ♥♥♥♥ instead of useful stuff like obsticles or enemies.

Merits: Good Story, good boss characters, some new obstacles
Pitfalls: Everything else.

I got this game on sale and I still feel ripped off. This is the kind of game that makes you want to slap the whole of Ubisoft in the face.
