Not a Difficult Game

The challenge I have with this title (as I have with the other POP games) is that is constantly feels like you're "on the way" to doing something great. You never quite get there.
This game (while beautiful) is not much in the way of boss battles. To the contrary; it's about the journey. That's all well and good but I need a pay-off for this amount of effort. I didn't get one.
Not a bad game/not a great one.
I'd say unless you enjoyed the previous titles; move on.

This game is about the worst and most easy game I have ever came across. After playing Prince of Persia, I was so bored with the game. I don't know if I would wanna see the movie. So my point of view of Prince of Persia, it needs to be more challengeing.

As previous viewer said, I am about 2 hours into this game and it feel to repetitive.

The levels and graphics are GREAT. But that is all the game has going for it.

If this is your first step into PoP, get this game. You will not be disappointed. But if you come into this game with the previous games level designs, and acrobats, you will be severely disappointed.

The story is not that captivating, and the hack and slash is boring with the Wii mote. I'll take mash A anyday over this.

Next problem I have is the block, and evading.

Block, if you do not block a full second before the attack, you will get hit. Every time.

Evade, while quicker response than block, you will find yourself hitting strafe, to roll sideways, and Prince will wind up going forward or backward when you KNOW you hit sideways. I think this has to do with camera angles.

All in all, if this is your first, or don't mind the nit-picking, this game is worth it. But if you come in, hoping for something similar to the first few games, you will be sad panda.

Overall, giving a 7, as I see its Pros, but the different alley they took with game design left me wanting.
