Camera angles and jump on or off walls get frustrating sometimes. Awesome graphics, great story. Fights are easy

i thought that prince of persia was a okay game. It had its moments. it felt odd that it was rated T it made no sence because the other games were rated M.When i played the game it was nice with all the running around n'such but when i looked at it all the fights were boss fights. nobody else is around and when u do have more than one boss at a time the next person is just standing there waiting for u. over all i think the game is over hipped and like i said it has it's momments but when u look at it its not the best. I think u could do better sony.

Glitchy

I was really looking forward to this game, i remember playing the Sands of time for countless hours back in 2003,than Warrior Within left a bad taste in my mouth and the Two Thrones was a decent enough effort.

Prince of Persia 2008 seems like a slap in the face. While the game may start off as fun an neat things get a little weird after you get you first power or two. i dot know what it is but theres a point that keeps glitching for me, its after i chose the green power, i can "heal" the area im at but when im trying to collect all the power orb things, i can seems to do the mini game where you have to run up the wall, it will randomly send me into the wall making me start all over?? i cant believe Ubisoft would allow such a stupid at lazy thing to happen!

The camera is fine for the most part but it can get annoying during the fast pace moments and im NOT a fan of the new controls for running on walls.

Pros
+ Amazing graphics
+Dialog is sometimes funny
+Good Music
+Trophies
+Fast loading

Cons
-Glitches
-Lazy developers (Like usual this generation)
-Too linear for an "open world" game
-Repetitive
-You cant die??!!?!! (Stupid)
-Horrible wall running

Ubisoft needs to go back to its roots... remake Sands of Time, start the series over (Again) and try not to be so lazy when developing.
