OLD PRINCE

If you played through sands, warrior within, and two thrones, then you must have fallen in love with the battle system. Picking up different weapons, throwing them at your enemies. Facing up to 6 opponents at once sometimes. Kind of mixing the old jet li game with different sword techniques. The playstation 2 prince of persia games were all about the action, and the puzzles!

NEW PRINCE

If you liked the prince before, you will not like this one. I played an hour, and it left me almost in tears. They changed the battle system... THEY CHANGED THE JUMP/CLIMB/WALLRUN BUTTON! WHAT THE SHIP? you cant do that to us! If you want a really pretty game to look at that doesn't skill or hand eye coordination to play, then you might like this game. But for the more hard core players that have experienced the old prince games, i would strongly advise you to not touch this game.

If you played the past PoP, you will be disappointed with this one. You spend most of your time in this game trying to collect these light orbs. There are only 5 different enemies in this game. You play each boss 5 times, and by the fifth time your just annoyed really. There are no fancy combos as there were in the past PoP, no weapons you can pick up, no special abilities. This game really was an utter disappointment. If your thinking about renting this game, don't bother you'll have a better time with PoP: Sands of time. This one sucks monkey n-ts. I got the impression the producers need to realize a game so they cheaply made a game, with last generation graphics and old interfaces. JOKE.

Ever get the feeling your watching a game as opposed to playing it, well thats how I felt with this game. Sure, it looks alright, nothing spectacular if you have played Ninja Gaiden or Heavenly Sword. The gameplay is just straight forward button mashing - I suppose my real gripe with this game is its too easy, I understand wanting to attract casual gamers and all, but seriously if I want to just vegetate with no real mental stimulation I will watch any of the national news channels.
