Im a big fan of the prince of persia franchise so I know my prince of persia games. I didnt expect too much for it being on psp but was ok for the game system it was on. the animation is ok and some of the challenges in the environment are somewhat difficut as you progress in the game. so if you have played the other games on ps2 and ps3 then dont expect too much from this game.
The graphics of POP:TFS are actually pretty impressive considering PSP restraints. The scenery is well rendered 3D, as are the characters/objects.
Gameplay is fast and fluid and haven't lost the touch of the traditional Prince of Persia games. Well coordinated button pressing at the right time just to get you across some seemingly impossible obstacle.
The sound is good, nothing extraordinary about it.
What makes this game different amongst the previous incarnations is that this version is more of a side-scrolling/platform game. It feels more like a NDS game on steroids.
As a "rail" game, this leaves the stress behind, and more of the fun in moving foward.
Overall, it is a great game in itself and is definitely worth playing.
