Livings hard, but dyings harder in Ubisoft Montreals Prince of Persia. Or should we call it "Prince of Persia Begins"? Either way, death is no longer in vogue. Fable II recently gave it the boot, and now Prince of Persia gives it a pair of hands....

When the Prince of Persia was born in 1989, it began as a simple side-scrolling platform game. At the time, the graphics were beautiful, and the gameplay put a refreshing twist on the genre that Mario had set not too long before. After a few sequels...

Creating a fresh spin on a franchise that spans as many games as Prince of Persia does isn’t easy, which is why Ubisoft have done a great job with its recent PoP game. The basic elements of jumping along ledges and sword fighting against foes...

Also youre really not fighting groups of enemies anymore, so combat doesnt get monotonous nor does it seem like a pain in the ass. On the flip side the combat in this game is way too simple as compared to, say The Warrior Within or even Two Thrones...

With Prince of Persia, Ubisoft has now re-invented Jordan Mechners titular royal nearly as many times as the average comic book characters been revamped. This is nothing new, as the prince has seen several makeovers throughout the nearly twenty...

In many modern games, you rain death upon your enemies; how refreshing, then, that your main task in Prince of Persia is to breathe life into a darkening world. That doesnt mean that the forces of evil arent on your tail in this open-world...

International Review By I Am Gamer on 80

Wenn eine Serie Kultstatus genießen darf, dann ist es die aus 1001 Nacht. Als 1989 der persische Prinz geboren wurde, wusste niemand, dass dies der Startschuss für eine glänzende Serie war. Nach einem Nachfolger plus einer 3D-Version...

Prince of Persia přišel na konci roku 2008, ale to neznamená, že už nejde o hru aktuální a svým způsobem zvláštní. Tvůrci měli vizi o nádherném pohádkovém...

Prince of Persia ist ein Jump'n'Run Game mit Schwächen. Für Kurzweile sorgt es allemal, da die Story einem immer wieder dazu bewegt, ein weiter zu machen um mehr über Elika und ihre Familie zu erfahren. Die Sprüche, die unser...
