I loved "The Sands of Time" trilogy. They had excellent plots, great gameplay, and memorable characters. This new rendition of PoP has totally captivated my attention and refuses to let go. The first thing that you will notice about the game is the graphics. These are VERY unique graphics, and have an art style that will surely be talked about for a long time. Wait until you see the shimmer effects of heat. Fantastic. The amazing voice acting and sound effects are slightly wasted by odd facial designs for expressions, but that is a minor graphical complaint, and praise for such high quality sound. It controls like a breeze... moving around the world is easy, and the 1 on 1 style fights are exciting and never got old. The game is long, and the game is open. This is one of the most entertaining story driven games I have played in a long time. Give this one a rent and consider a purchase... you will get your monies worth.
Graphics: 9.5/10. This is the most mesmerizing art style since the Legend of Zelda: Windwaker. Great graphics all around.
Sound: 10/10. Sounds like the developers spend a great deal of time and effort on the sound. Beautiful music and OUTSTANDING voice acting.
Control: 9/10. Great controls. The wall running can feel floaty at times, but the fighting is well done.
Fun: 10/10. Some of the most fun I have had gaming in a long time.
Story: 8/10: Some silly moments, but a great "summer movie" style story.
Overall (NOT an average): 9 (More like 9.5... I do not usually give 10's)
Time to Complete: About 15-20 hours, depending on how much exploring you do... could actually probably be less.
Check out my other reviews for SOUL CALIBER 4 (6) and DEAD SPACE (8). (Overall score for each game in parenthises). Thanks, and enjoy the game!
