Prince Of Persia is a amazing game. The story is unique in its own way. Its very captivating. It would be wrong of me to give away any of the story to anyone who hasn't played this game yet.
The characters are a big sigh of relief. When I first heard that the original prince was not the PC, I was a little concerned. but I'm very happy with the new prince. He is a bit of a hardhead but is one of the most compelling characters I've seen in a video game to date.
Throughout the game you watch as the prince grows/matures. In the beginning, he is very selfish and is a loner( besides his donkey) As the game progresses, you watch as the Prince comes to realize that he is apart of a bigger world. He comes to realize that Ahriman must be stopped to save the world. Now in video games its usually kill the bad guy, save the world, get the girl. But its amazing to watch the emotions change in the Prince as the game goes on. He is one of my fav. video game characters of all time.
Elika is a great "companion" ( has the whole helpful feel like Navi to Link in LOZ: OOT) She's beautiful and feels like friend/useful NPC and not a burden.
Gameplay flows together smoothly and has a strategic feel to it. Some may find it a bit repetitive after a while but others will welcome it because it just feels so smooth in each battle.
Platforming is amazing from Wall/Claw running to Ceiling crawling. The platforming in this game is some of the best I've ever seen.
One thing that is either a love/hate thing is the "No Dying". Some people love it because the don't have to start all the way back at a checkpoint where others hate it and feel it is too easy. It's a opinion thing. I like it.
Ok now the CONS: I wish it was longer. It's about 12hrs(maybe a bitlonger)
Wish the 4th costume was reviled( lol) Also that the Altiar costume wasn't only available for people with PSN or Xbox live.
This game isn't for everyone but its amazing none the less
