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.
