A decent rental (but glad I didn't buy it)

I thought this game was fun. The environmental puzzles where well put together and presented a decent challenge without being overly frustrating. The combat was lackluster though and the replay value is next to nothing. I haven't played through the other PoP games so I can't make a comparison there.

All and all this is a game that I'm really glad I didn't buy. It's short, the challenge modes present maybe half an hour of entertainment after you complete the game, and there's no difficulty harder then normal. As I mentioned above, next to no replay value.

At first i thought because this isnt a movie tie in game it would be just like sands of time but better. Boy was i wrong. Sands of Time, Warrior Within & Two Thrones are way better than this and those games are all last gen. The graphics seem off to me and very sloppy by ubisofts usual standards. The combat is in my opinion is the worst in the series and although the prince's witty dialouge is still present its a pretty dry story. The only positive thing i can say about this game is the platforming and rewinding time(that never gets old to me) is pretty good. Using elements in the environment for platforming is genius and feels good. Movement in the game feels slower because now you have to input all the movements for the prince kind of like assassins creed. Which works well in Assassins creed but not PoP. If you like PoP then this one is worth playing at least through once, other than that i cant recommend this for more than a rental. There are 4 other Prince of Persias that are older and better than this.
