This is considering that the original (With it's 20+ reviews) wouldn't be retrieved for some time. So until it returns, the sequel will do, but the sequel can only so often triumph over the original.Outline/Example:Recently Completed:
Prince of Persia: Sands of TimeSystem:
The Prince and his father conqueror the Maharajah for honor and glory. Among the loot is the Dagger and Hourglass of Time and Farah. The Prince wishes to keep the dagger, to the Vizier's dismay; the Vizier, in turn, tricks the Prince to stabbing the Dagger in the Hourglass, unleashing the Sands of Time which turn all but the Prince, Vizier and Farah into sand creatures.Time Spent:
5:52 (Original time was around 9 hours)The Good:
+ The ambiance, surroundings and music; and how they all flow together. The Arabic setting is easily a highlight and works perfectly with the game. Excellent production value.
+ Camera, when you're scoping out the surroundings to see the best way to get to your destination, fighting or simply enjoying the surroundings. Nearly perfect.
+ Controls are absolutely perfect, nothing is out of place and it works wonders.
+ Exploration and platforming, they go hand in hand and is easily the best part of the game.
+ Being able to rewind time after a bad jump or in combat, eliminates some frustrations and is a big help all around.
+ The characters and their interaction with each other, mainly the Prince and Farah.
+ The Prince would think his thoughts to himself, which was an excellent touch. Made the Prince come alive even more.
+ The fighting is good, at times nice and fluid, almost a weave of elegant slashing and stabbing.
+ Plenty of enjoyable puzzles.
+ What's there, in the end, is amazing.
+ Original Prince of Persia as an unlockable.The Bad:
- Some puzzles can be tricky (Gatekeeper one specifically)
- Kinda short, which is a shame.
- Fighting could be a bit betterScore:
9.5/10, easily one of the highlights of Platforming in the GC/PS2/X-Box generation for platforming, and one that should not be missed.
