I can't wait to buy the PS3 to buy that game too... Artistically(?) speaking, I'm in love with the visual style of that game! :love3: :love3: :love3:

This is another game my company worked on.

I gotta say, I loved the artistic direction of it, I dont know if I've played another game that looks this amazing and unique.

My only problem was that there was absolutely nothing new. There was no exploring because you have a set path with distinct limited options. There was almost no enemies either except for scripted boss and miniboss encounters. There was completely repetitive gameplay with almost no upgrades in the abilities that the prince can perform. There was also no real sense of danger since the princess saved you from every deadly drop--and contrary to that mechanic it can be SO repetitive if you get stuck on a tricky corner or ledge and have to try the jump over and over again...

I played it for hours and hours, days and days, and finally returned it because I realized it felt like I was just playing the first level over and over again :?

Overall, I say it had the best graphics and artistic design I've seen in forever, some fun dialogue and neat characters, some great free running game mechanics, but the gameplay was overall extremely shallow and combat was virtually non existent. I don't think we'll see the Prince of Persia franchise continuing with this particular rendition (especially considering the movie Prince of Persia goes back to the older Sands of Time era prince!)
Nothing is certain until your dead and then I'm sure God negotiates.
