Good idea.... Not so fun to play

Prince of Persia is confusing and Saves are too far from each other. The idea of a dagger that can turn back and slowdown time is a great one though. Thank you for tuning in.

Spent 35 minutes trying to jump up two walls. There was some combination of buttons to press but god knows what they were.

I wanted so badly to like this game, but the gameplay just killed it for me. For it's time the graphics and character animations were pretty amazing.

Here's what killed it for me. First off this guy is super acrobatic, yet there's little ledges he can't just simply jump on? Secondly and this is huge is the camera. It's worse than spiderman indoors. Why do they insight on having you walk blindly? Especially when you need to jump on a wall with a spinning blade on a timer? Sure they've got creative ways to adjust it, but it doesn't stick.

Lastly the combat is really button mashing and at some points it gets really old because they just keep re-spawning and you have no sense of accomplishment and it's really hard to be good.

So many people like this game and the developer is talented, but if I was sitting in the testing room this one wouldn't have hit the shelves.
