Transported to a land of myth and legend - The Prince of Persia finds himself caught up in an epic battle between the primal forces of good and evil, the God of Light, Ormazd versus his brother Ahriman, the God of Darkness. He witnesses the destruction of the legendary Tree of Life - an act which threatens to plunge the entire world into eternal darkness by releasing a deadly dark matter, known as the corruption, across the land.

Compelled to thwart the God of Darkness and his evil minions, the Prince joins forces with a mysterious protagonist gifted with magical powers called Elika. Together they embark on a heroic quest to heal the ravaged landscape of the corruption that has plagued it and restore peace.

The first episode in a brand-new epic trilogy, Prince of Persia will deliver masterful storytelling, sprawling environments and incredible set-piece moments in an experience rivaling the best blockbuster Hollywood movies.

Prince Of Persia (With Play.com Exclusive Packaging) Includes:

  • Scratch card with unique code to unlock exclusive in-game skins for the Prince (Prince "Classic" skin) and Elika ("Farah" skin)
  • High quality collector box set featuring varnish and metallic blue arabesque finish
  • Exclusive 24-page Comic book unveiling the backstory of the Hunter, one of the key bosses of the game
  • Bonus DVD including soundtrack, videos, e-goodies, widget and more!

Game Features:

  • Master the acrobatics, strategy and fighting tactics of the most agile warrior of all time. Perform perfectly timed acrobatic combinations to traverse canyons and buildings and avoid the evil tremors borne out of the corruption. Armed with a gauntlet acquired from previous adventures, the Prince scale sheer cliff faces and tackle Ahriman's minions in combat!
  • Experience an ancient mythological world brought to life with an all-new art style labeled "Illustrative," inspired by the highly detailed hand painted illustrations it takes its source from. Prince of Persia's unique graphic style is a perfect balance between classic drawings and modern modeling, offering the look and feel of a watercolour painting in motion.
  • Combine the Prince's abilities and Elika's power to deadly effect. Her abilities will help in combat, acrobatics and puzzle-solving. She will enable the Prince to reach new heights of deadly high-flying artistry through special duo acrobatic moves or devastating fighting combo attacks.
  • From sprawling Persian citadels, deserted kingdoms and perilous lava rifts, discover a vivid and mythological world of unprecedented scale, with an evolving non-linear structure. With multiple paths to choose from, players will influence the game's final outcome

This new game is great to play, it's fun, quite fast paced and has a good story. But what happened to the cool prince, he's become the annoying back chatting guy from "the mummy". Also the cartoony graphics in this game really ruin the main characters, but the scenery and enemies have a slight improvement. This game is too easy as you can't die and the combos last forever. There are lots of new cool moves, the fightings one on one and it is less challenging to traverse the environment. Overall if you want a game like the old prince of Persia your better suited for "assasins creed".

I love it. I got it a few days ago and it's really managed to impress me. I was really unsure at first if the graphics would be offputting but I'm a massive fan of adventure as a genre and it's on the PS3 so how could I go wrong? Glad I took the leap of faith and went for it 'cos it's totally addictive.
The story, although kinda diluted and kiddish, is engaging and makes perfect sense through the context of the game. The characters (maybe not our prince) are great with nice wholesome personalities and values as you'd expect from this type of game.
The two things that really make this all come together are the gameplay and the graphics.
I'll start with the graphics, they are nothing short of incredible, I was impressed at first but then it kinda just kept on getting better and better. Firstly, the animation in movement is fantastic, it's incredibly fluid and this ties into a gameplay point I'll mention later. The stark contrast between corrupted and healed worlds is great and really adds to the atmosphere of the game. Also, when you heal a world, the scene is nothing short of beautiful and really makes you feel like you're doing something good!
Ok, so on to gameplay. I'm a bit of a thinker when it comes to adventure games (if you played early Tomb Raiders you'll know what I mean) and I had some concerns as a lot of reviews etc.. really focused on the intuitive side of the game. I'm very pleased to say that this totally blew me away. The action is divided over a few simple button presses that really don't always have to be that well timed taking away any of the pressure you might think this game would throw at you. After you get to grips with how he moves and such, you feel compelled to pull off a 'clean' run and this is where the graphics some in to play some more. The transition between any and every seperate action is completely seamless. This gives a massive feeling of accomplishment when you've had a good run at something and makes you want to go out and learn how to do it yourself (not recommended).
The last thing I gotta cover is combat. If you've read this far then you probably already know that I think it's ace. Every fight is effectively a boss fight, this means that you're free to concentrate on getting from A to B without being jumped every 2 minutes. The combos you pull off rock and they are pretty much endless, you can be losing a figt one minute and with a good bout of low level concentration and a beautiful acrobatic display, you're chucking some random beast of the edge of a cliff.
All in all an excellent game that I wish I hadn't played like a maniac so I had more levels to cover, not to worry, they're bound to make a sequel!
Buy buy buy.

 The Prince for a new generation

Top 10 Tickets Reviewer

Ever since its debut on the archaic Apple II machine in 1989 (and its subsequent transfer to the popular console machines of the '90s), Prince of Persia has been one of the most fondly remembered games of its era. A reboot of the franchise in 2003 saw it become popular for yet another generation, moving the game onto the more modern consoles and proving its longevity in its new format.

Now in 2008 we see Prince of Persia undertake another reboot, this time for the "next-gen" consoles, PS3 and 360. An entirely new Prince in an entirely new setting, the game benefits from a new art direction, as well as new gameplay elements. The art direction is the first thing you'll notice, the menu screen alone presented in the form of a fluid oil painting. Once you actually start playing the game, you'll realise that all the marketing hype of a "painting in motion" has definitely been lived up to. The world you find yourself in is a glorious, richly textured beautiful one, but at the same time can be dark and menacing, depending on what stage of the game you are in.

As for gameplay, the guys at Ubisoft seem to have taken all the best bits from the Sands of Time trilogy whilst adding their own positive elements. The acrobatics and agility of the Prince return, this time in a completely open and non-linear world. All paths do eventually lead to the same goal, but it is down to you how you get there. Wall-running, cavern traversing and pillar climbing is both fun and a necessary requisite and thanks to your partner Elika's magical skills, you won't very often be left wandering without aim.

Elika herself is one of the most positive additions to the game, providing some witty banter between her and the Prince, as well as a vital partner in traversing the world and seeing off its enemies. The combat system itself is wonderful, moving away from the frequently used horde of enemies to fend off and towards a more gallant one-on-one style battle. It makes every fight seem like a challenge, with four different attacks (including Elika's magical ability) to string together in any form you want, leading to some magnificently satisfying and beautiful battles.

Much as been made of the fact that you cannot die, with Elika saving you from any potentially fatal falls and stepping in if enemies get the upper hand. However what at first seems maybe as the game holding your hand in times of need, just proves to be the same as in many other games where you die and spawn at the last checkpoint. The only difference in Prince of Persia is that you don't have to sit through a load screen and so it keeps the game moving at the intended pace.

Just as Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time did in 2003, this current reboot has breathed fresh life into an already invigorated franchise. With an engaging storyline, a great script and most importantly beautiful visuals and fun gameplay, it may not challenge you in the most innovative gaming sense, but it is sure to keep you entertained for the 10 or so hours it provides.
