Uplay prevents you from playing offline, for a single player game!

* Character design and writing both suck
* Voice acting sucks
* Stupid Uplay "achievement" popups that last forever in the middle of the screen
* Game breaking graphical glitches in the very first level
* No Linux support (as usual with Ubisoft morons)

Screw Ubisoft and their bad business practices.
Do not buy Ubisoft "products".

This is another installment of the Sands of Time series of the Prince of Persia. While is not the best in the series, proves to add some improvements to the whole gameplay; a new and somehow fresh story about the Prince of Persia (kinda short if you ask me) has the typical elements of the series, such as: the puzzle rooms, sword fights and some confusing "extra" powers. One of the big differences compared to the other games is definitely the combat as this time you fight hordes of enemies which will grant you experience to unlock more skills and/or powers. At first can be fun to fight a lot of enemies, but after a while it is somehow repetitive as there are too many enemy variations.

Graphics and the environments are okay and probably way better compared to the other games. Music is okay too. Probably where the game shines is in their puzzles and room exploration as you progress you will get a power which will change the room exploration greatly (you will know while going through the story, but don't want to spoil it for you).

Compared to the other games this game has a challenge mode, which is pretty much survive 7 waves of enemies to get more experience and unlock the Prince's skills in story mode. Not really difficult to beat, specially if you have the sword and life upgrades already.

I'd recommend this game only if you played the previous games in the series and you are curious about this game, otherwise you will feel the game is really short and doesn't have too much content, for the same reason pick it up when is on sale.

It's not Sands of Time or the cel-shaded reboot. But it's good enough to play through.

Taek the prince and make him a character for children in a 6 hour long game with a story that is very cliché.

Yes... this game is lame.
