I got this as a gift, after we watched the movie. It goes without saying, that the cinema looked better, but apart from that, this is a pretty fun game, if a little too hard. Defeating the sand monsters are easy, and the way you collect your sand to your time warping powers is nice, but also a little absurd, that if you run out of it, you will have to start from the autosave point if you lose. The acrobatics stuff is hard. I actually never finished it. There was a part, where i had to wall run, jump to the other wall, run up, avoid the blades, and run again....never got it right.
Finnaly after many years we were able to play new Prince of Persia. This time of course, game is not classic platformer, but the fully 3rd person arcade adventure that redifined the arcade adventure genre. Game is beautifylly designed with stunning graphics, excellent gameplay, and phenomenal atmosphere. Story follows young Prince that was betrayed by Maharaja advisor Vizier who's goal is to control Sands of Time. This time Prince will have help in certain levels from Maharaja daughter Farah. Together they will try to stop evil Vizier and return Sands to the hourglass. Gameplay is well balanced with many challenging puzzles and fight scenes. Commands are pretty simple and every player can get used to them very fast. At a certain point in the game you will obtain dagger of time, and after that games gets another dimension. You will be able to reverse time and correct your previous mistakes , freeze enemies etc. Graphics are amazing, with many exotic and interesting locations. Mechanics and physics are great. Variety of Prince abilities, his movement, platforming options are something completely new and revolutionary and represent complete refreshment in this genre. This is instant classic game that will be player and refered to years to come. Must have for every serious gamer.

Sands of Time is a classic title. I guess, nobody doubts that. I had first played Sands of Time at PS2 and got familiar then with the Prince of Persia series. I didn't knew what exactly to expect, but unsurprisingly I liked it more after I kept playing. Worthy feature to mention, you can wall-run parkour-style. Isn't that cool, especially for a game released in 2003? The fighting system is good and different at some moments (you'll eventually find out how exactly it is if you play). You'll be fighting guys and monsters, but I won't spoil the story though. Sands of Time is a great action game. I like how the graphics are, especially for the specific Prince of Persia game, and they are of course different than the rest of the series (besides, it was released in 2003, but I think they made them like that on purpose). Nevertheless, the game is worth it's price. You wanna try the series? I'd suggest you to start with Sands of Time.
Prince of Persia is like a dinosaur among video games. A respected and loved dinosaur but the elder of the family nonetheless. And then, Ubisoft remade the game in 2003. However, the developpers knew they could not simply do that. That's why there is a twist to Prince of Persia's gameplay : you can go back in time at will. Yeah, you read that right. For instance, you've made a mistake and have fallen down a pit. No problem! Just go back in time right before your jump. For that reason, the game manages to stay challenging while not being frustrating. This Prince of Persia game is also interesting to play because it serves as an spiritual father for the Assassin's Creed franchise. Prince of Persia is pretty fun game to play.
