Until now I had never played a PoP title, but always heard and read good things, now I see why. Although the fighting is a little monotonous, the scenery, the graphics, and the story more than make up for it. This is a prime example on how a game should be. For $50 you shouldn't be shelving a game as a "been there done that" the next morning. You should be able to get a little time out of it, and this title is just that. Its got a little bit of everything that makes a fun game, easily one can see why it has spurned the sequels which I will add to my Q soon enough. You won't be disappointed, and maybe even pleasantly surprised.

I have finally gotten around to playing this game. This game is fantastic and true to the franchise. It has plenty of acrobatics and puzzle solving. It also has some challenging fight scenes as well. I can now officially say that the movie based on this game made by Disney is total bull. They have warped the plot line in that movie beyond belief. On another note, if you are a fan of the franchise PLAY IT!!!! If you want to start getting your feet wet into this franchise, play this game. You also get the original Prince of Persia when you beat this story line. So its 2 games for the price of 1. Must rent and a great keeper!!!!!

I liked this game, but I didn't love it.

On the minus side, weak combat and storyline, a few annoying puzzles, occasional camera problems, and the boss of the game was a total let down.

On the plus side, mostly fun puzzles and about the best acrobatics system on a modern game. The easy game play and the cool stuff the prince can do makes you look like a gamer ace. Before long you'll be doing flips, jumps, and dodges all wonderfully fluid. The animations look nice and smooth, and it's overall a very pretty game.

Don't rent it for the combat, rent it for the flips.
