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.

Fun and cool looking game.


I do not know why anyone else complains about this game. I think it is super fun. I liked the cartoon styled graphics and gameplay which was nice. Probably in the Prince of Persia series, I like the Warrior Within the most, but this one has this unique style that makes it the most original part of the story. Price nowadays is rather cheap so give this one a chance.

Interesting spin-off of the Prince


Prince of Persia (2008) is a different but visually awesome game for the PoP series, starring a new prince with new enemies, dungeons, bosses and allies. And of course, new parkour mechanics and new powers too. This game tells a whole different story we know and love about the sands of time, as this time, you as the Prince need to learn from your mistakes and solve problems to help you allies to save the world. Overall, is a good game, but don't expect much of the Prince from previous games. Recommended.

Prince of different Persia.


This Prince of Persia is very different from the previous games. You are not killing hordes of monsters but more likely fighting your way trough several bosses. It is still pretty good gaming experience and game requires you to be much more carefull with your sword since every time the fight is a little different and you need to adapt. I was surprised but in a good way. The game took a different course but I like where it went. Story was separate from other games and I loved every minute of it. Just give it some time and you will get used to it and believe me, you will enjoy this game a lot.

A good game, but it doesn't hold true to the franchise


I think this game had potential. However, the fact that in this game you cannot die takes away the challenge. While in the other Prince of Persia games one mistake can cost you your life (but you can rewind time to try again) this is the exact opposite: it is truly hard to lose, but when you do, the game holds your hand and just revives you. The story: This is where they tried to be different, with the whole "reboot" and all, and, personally, I didn't like it. In the other games you are the prince, a noble who tries to save the world but, by messing with the tides of time, he creates new problems. He has to learn to grow up, to fight his evil side and accept life as it is. In this game you are some sort of poor guy with a metal arm that doesn't come with a back story or anything of this sort. He meets some girl and then they have to save the world. I won't spoil the ending but it's nothing impressive again. The gameplay: As I said, the game is way too easy. No matter how intricate you try to make the combat system, if players can win by mashing random buttons and can't lose, they will get bored fast. The bosses were pretty cool, but the parkour is not as good because failing doesn't mean death, just tedious backtracking. The graphics: The game looks gorgeous. However, I think I should mention that it isn't well optimized, so you will have to have a pretty good computer to play it on max graphics. The cell-shaded look is also pretty well-done The conclusion: Buy this game if you want to see a different take on the Prince of Persia formula. It is a pretty ok game if you ignore the fact that we got this instead of a proper sequel to the great original trilogy.
