This game looks stunning. The art work makes it feel like you are playing through a sketch or water painting- an amazing look thats never really been done so well. The puzzles are nearly absent throughout the whole game and the few you run into are very simple. The focus is mainly on platforming and ballet-like combat. The combat is way too easy. button prompts show up on screen to aid you in battles and there is no way to turn them off which could make some people looking for a challenge, look somwhere else. Platforming is fun and its impossible to die because your AI sidekick saves you every time you miss a jump. Its nice because you dont have to satrt all over but, again, it takes away from the challenge. You AI companion is one of the smartest I have ever seen. The enemies are not numerous- focusing mainly on 1v1 combat. The open world allows you to complete tasks in any order you please. This is a huge step away from the sands of time trilogy but a welcome new step at that

this game is awesome....but, i do have issues with it. visually, its got some of the more impressive graphics ive seen ever in a game. the animation was stellar and in its own rights, there isnt a game that offers the quality of graphics that this game offer. the familiar jumping style gameplay (Prince of Persia, Mirror's Edge) is very exciting and fun at the same time being easy enough to play, but with enough challenges to annoy you when you mess up for the hundredth time. the fighting system is alot of fun once you learn how to use it. now, the problems....thats really all there is to the whole game. once you get past all the new concepts this game has to offer, it gets rather boring, at least for me it did. there isnt much fighting, really and i got bored of jumping and sliding and swinging (and falling) off of things after about the 3rd hour. the story was interesting enough for me to finish the game, and i will say that, even with what i thought were flaws, this is one of the best games of the year and you definitely need to experience it yourself, because it has some amazing features to offer.

ok lets start by me saying that I'm was a huge fan of the POP trilogy...loved it on my ps2...and what alot of changes has been added on the next gen POP. The graphics are amazing story is good...the only comment that i have about those two sections is: Its prince of PERSIA..and here comes a prince from the desert with blue eyes and an american accent..come on !!!!!they were suppose to make him more authentic with a persian look and an cool accent ..and I'm sure every body agrees when i mention NIKO BALAC from GTA4 ..ya the looks and his accent made him very cool.. one huge deference that this game has from assassin's creed is the environment with assassin's was filled with people walking in the markets and the city makes u interact with other people but with POP u play the whole game with the prince and elika and maybe one or two enemies..thats it ! remember the old prince of persia when u fall in a crowd on enemies and u start jumping from one of them's back to stab another ..i hope u will get my point..i think it will get kinda boring running alone in the desert with a chick walking on walls and jumping on polls ..walking on walls and jumping on polls ..walking on walls and jumping on polls ..walking on walls and jumping on polls ..see i bet u got frustrated by now ..that exactly what the game does to u ..I'm sorry ubisoft u could done better..
