Just as the title states, the scenes in the beginning seem engaging and curious, like this will be a good story game. Then you play and thoughout the game, the game play is fun, nice concepts. But towards the end of the game it seems like they didn't know how to end it or their funding was cut or something, but compared to how it started, it ended very rushed and poorly executed. I mean, the cinematography at the end wasn't even a movie! It was a series of pictures that explained what happened at the end. The end. Is the game horrible, no, but if you have other titles you consider playing, leave this one for last. I enjoyed the first 3 PoP games (Sands of Time, Warrior Within, and my favorite - The Two Thrones), but I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did the rest, if that helps you decide.
this game is incredibly fun. i don't understand why the bad vibe for this game exists. it isn't perfect, but it has the same feel of the PoP trilogy, along with added BONUSES. i am not finished with the game yet, but i have played enough to feel a need to review. i bought this @ gamestop for $7 and i've been playing it nonstop. the platforming is fun, ESPECIALLY when you can freeze water (so cool, i just got this ability), and i can't get enough amusement out of jumping on enemy heads over and over. the combat could be a little more difficult, but that's why you have harder difficulty levels which i'm sure unlock when the game is finished (according to trophies), and the prince has elemental powers which are fun to use. my only other complaint about the game is that the combat MOVEMENT could be quicker. it isn't incredibly slow or anything, but i just recall him moving faster with a sword in Sands of Time and Warrior Within (never played Two Thrones).
an added bonus for Assassin's Creed fans? play the game in Ezio's ACII costume. that's how i'm finishing it :)
