Prince of Persia: After 15 years they finally get it right!

February 9, 2009

Rather than age old concept of saving-the-princess-trapped-in-tower-by-the-evil-wizard, this time they’ve turned the princess into an acrobatic and witty character that journeys together with the prince. Jumping on walls, fighting evil monsters and catching the prince when he falls. Yep, my kind of girl.

Thanks to the princess, the prince never dies. She always brings him back to life, making the game more of an adventure genre rather than an action one. Good for ol’timers like me. 🙂

The conversations are hilarious. The prince is playful, extremely flirty and acts the fool – all the time. The princess is sarcastic, down-to-earth and has a sense of direction. Yeah, I know, I didn’t believe it either. You have to play it to believe it.

On a technical note: The graphics as you can see, are simple yet colourful. I played it with the highest setting on my notebook which has a 7900GS equivalent VGA. It should work fine at lower settings on average machines.
