An Enchanting Platformer- 0

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a remarkable and enchanting game. It combined fluid visuals with engrossing storytelling and stellar level design to form a unique standard of game that is rarely achieved.  The plot of the game follows the titular Prince of Persia, who is manipulated into unleashing the Sands of time which turn everyone in the palace the game is set in into horrible Sand Demons. The only exceptions to this horrible fate are Farah and the Vizer.  The Vizer is the games Anta...

Fantastic! 0

Prince of Persia: SoT was excellent from beginning to end. It's highly immersive with some excellent puzzles and platforming. The level design is extremely logical and fun to solve. The levels are challenging but it's not impossible like most other games of this type. I was able to beat it without a faq so that shows that anybody can figure out this game. The difficulty isn't high and the game is very forgiving. The save points are numerous enough that you won't be frustrated if you die and the ...

An absolutely killer reboot. 0

The ShortPros- Superb evolution of the platforming formula- Excellent platforming puzzles and traps- Introduction of the "time reverse" mechanic relieves the frustration of failure- Charming characters and witty dialogue- Story told as a narration fits the Arabian theme- Excellent graphics for the time, still hold up reasonably well- Great musicCons- Combat isn't particularly enthralling and can be "broken" with a few attacks- Some of the puzzles can have obscure solutions- Pre-rendered cutscene...

The Prince's First Succesful 3D Outing 0

First of, I'd like to say that it's a rare treat to see such smooth and simple controls incorperated into a game. The ease at which you perform the dazzling moves, and death-defying leaps is incredible. Whether you're wall-running or fighting a hord of sand creatures, you'll never end up feeling like you have to twist your fingers in a knot to make it work. Ever wanted to play acrobat? Well, you'll be doing plenty of acrobatics in this game - and it's a whole lot saver to do too. If more develop...

PoP is one of the best games to come along in years. 0

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a great renewal of the classic POP franchise. Ubisoft created an instant classic by bringing us a rich game world, a very cool main character, and fun platforming. While the game is on the short side, it's a fun ride while it lasts. The first thing that you'll notice about SOT is that it looks great. The Prince narrates the story in the past tense throughout the game. Following along with that theme, there's a sort of warm glow over everything that gives t...

Buy this game! 0

I did not like the original pop, it was wiked hard and didn't deliver anything grand to the table. But that is not even relevant in this amazing game. Pop: Sands of Time is a truly amazing platformer that you cannot put down. I had great fun playing this game from start-to-finish. While it is relatively short being that I finished it in 4 hours, it was still worth it.That being said, the other Prince of Persia games are dwarfed by this amazing game. Great graphics, great cutscenes, and a great s...

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (GameCube) Review 0

Fans of the original series rejoiced when Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was released by UbiSoft. Until that point, not many people knew much about the series, and despite the influence it had over many later games like Tomb Raider, not many people had even heard of it. Unlike the original games, Sands of Time takes place in three dimensions, and the transition was a seamless and impressive one that took the games to new heights. The story centers around the unnamed prince, who narrates th...

Solid platforming and a quality production make this a must try 0

The fluid controls and animations of the original Prince of Persia are unlike anything from that era. That level of fidelity translated to a true three dimensional world without a hitch in The Sands of Time. One of the more significant aspects of this game is how well the Prince controls. He has a very impressive catalog of acrobatics including wall running, pole swinging, tightrope balancing, ledge scaling, and rope climbing. All of his moves are easy to perform due to a control scheme t...
