The Prince Of Persia franchise is back, But is this prince worthy enough to be the Prince Of Persia, Or should he be washed away in the sands of time?
Prince Of Persia On Next-Gen Consoles is a new Prince, Not the prince of the Sands Of Time trilogy.
The Game opens up with the Prince walking through a sandstorm looking for his donkey...Yeah i no..As he gets blown away he is blown off a cliff and lands on his back, then a few moments later "Elika" a mysterious princess lands on top of you and then runs off.
This is were you chase after her and leran the ropes of the game, You learn how to run jump climb fight blah blah, Very simple.
Now the story that Prince Of Persia has to offer can be very detailed and complex but not to the average gamer.
In regards to the story your kinda thrown into left going....ummm hang on?.
The only way for you get get into the story and find out ALOT more about it is to stand beside Elika and press LT to trigger a repetivite (?) cutscene each time to find out a little more out the places, why eveythings happening, who Elika is, Her father.
It bugs me that they couldnt tell you the dialoge while your doing your mission, But no they make you sit watch stoopid cut scenes which DO help out with the story but just take to long to tell.
Now the graphics. WOW! the looks just plain beautiful it looks like your playing a water-colour painting its just stunning.
The Game runs on an engine called Scimitar (a HEAVY modified version of the Assassins Creed engine) if they can give out detail out like this in games then i cant wait to see what Ubisoft can give us in years to come.
The combat system in the game is very different compared to other games, once engaged in combat your sort of locked into a ring and all the buttons are mapped out very nice.
X = Sword
B = Gauntlet
A = Acrobatics
Y = Elikas Magic Attacks
and these can all be mixed and matched to deliver brutal combos.
I wont go on any long because ive went on long enough but to some up this game is great if you have the time to watch all the cut seens and get into the story.
Its not like the other Prince Of Persia Games, if you've played the other ones youll like this one!
