Not surprising but pretty solidmahon | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all mahon's reviews »
There haven't been many videogame series which evolved as much as the Prince of Persia games. From the early platformer (very interesting, graphically impressive and innovative for its time) to modern action games of today, the games remain popular choices and have kept entertaining players for years now. The Sands of Time is not a new game now and it shows its age, but it remains very playable and can be enjoyed as much as in the time of its release. It combines some platforming elements with combat and pretty good story, which combination results in enjoyable gameplay. The game will not surprise you with any innovative concepts now, unless you are not familiar with games of the last decade, but it's a solid bit of gaming anyway.
