Prince of Persia (NA)
This game requires a free UPLAY account to play.
Built by the same award-winning Ubisoft Montreal studio that created Assassin's Creed™, Prince of Persia has been in development for over three years to deliver a whole new action-adventure gaming experience to consumers.
With a whole new Prince, storyline, open world environments, combat style, signature illustrative graphical style and the addition of Elika, a deadly new ally, Prince of Persia brings the franchise to new heights of deadly acrobatic artistry and is set to become the #1 action-adventure game of 2008 this holiday season.
- A new hero emerges: Master the acrobatics, strategy and fighting tactics of the most agile warrior of all time. Grip fall down the face of a building, perform perfectly timed acrobatic combinations, and swing over canyons, buildings and anything that is reachable. This new rogue warrior must utilize all of his new skills, along with a whole new combat system, to battle Ahriman's corrupted lieutenants to heal the land from the dark Corruption and restore the light.
- A new epic journey begins: Escape to experience the new fantasy world of ancient Persia. Masterful storytelling and sprawling environments will deliver to action-adventure fans an experience that rivals even the best Hollywood movies.
- A new open world structure: A first for the Prince of Persia franchise — now you have the freedom to determine how the game evolves in this non-linear adventure. Players will decide how they unfold the storyline by choosing their path in the open-ended world.
- Emergence of a deadly new ally: History's greatest ally is revealed in the form of Elika, a dynamic AI companion who joins the Prince in his fight to save the world. Gifted with magical powers, she interacts with the player in combat, acrobatics and puzzle-solving, enabling the Prince to reach new heights of deadly high-flying artistry through special duo acrobatic moves or devastating fighting combo attacks.

Although it may not offer a particular challenge, Prince of Persia is an enjoyable ride. By making a more accessible game, the game broadens the appeal of 3d platformers, even if afficionadoes of the genre may be turned off by the seeming simplicity. What makes this game different from its predecessors is how the gameplay has been streamlined. This allows you to focus on getting from point to point and taking in the beautiful vistas and stunning architecture. The way that dying is handled means that it's impossible to fail, which frees you from having to perfect particular sequences and constantly reload, allowing you to sit back, relax and enjoy yourself. It's a graphically elegant game, and the interactions between the two main characters are believable and humorous. Definitely pick this game up if you're interested in trying out a less frustrating platformer with some personality.
