The only Prince of Persia game I have played more than 5-7 times. I know it doesn't seem that way, but that's because I first owned it on XBOX 360 before selling it a long time ago and purchasing it on sale on here about a year later.
The Prince of Persia is back, and he's smoother than ever. With a new engine for the series, new visuals, new gameplay, you'll be hooked. I think besides having one of my favorite characters ever lead the way again, the other part that got me hooked was the upgrades and the upgrading system itself. I really like games that have this, even if it's minimal. I don't like being stuck with the same set of skills and powers for the entirety of a video game.
The Prince is sent to study alongside his brother, Malik, in order to become a great leader. On arrival, he notices his brother's kingdom under attack again, only this time it's much worse. He is forced to rely on a mythical army to stop the invaders of his kingdom. He releases the army, and not only are the invaders turned to sand, but so too are his soldiers. The only thing that's stopping The Prince & Malik from turning are the amulets they acquire from when Malik released the army. Find out more by playing this amazing game.
I really like the smoothness of everything, from the combat to the parkour we all know and love. The Prince is also able to upgrade powers he later acquire and uses, his health, energy, attack power, and more! If you're like me, and you want to stay protected during a fight, so you don't have to scavenge too much for health and energy, then upgrade the power that armors you.
I recommend playing this game with a controller. My logitech gamepad works great with this. I don't know about the xbox 360 wired controller.
The developers were able to combine SoT & WW into one fantastic game, and I couldn't have kinder words about it. I only wish there was some kind of epilogue DLC, where The Prince runs into something he has to deal with on the journey back home to his father. That would've made the game even more epic.
I look forward to more Prince of Persia games.
