Good news?? Loved the PS2 games, wasn't that fussed with PS3 debut.November 30, 2009 at 7:25 pm #51414BigWoopMagazineMember
SWEET. Thats fantastic news to me. I loved the story line of the PS2 trilogy, and the great combination of gameplay elements. I wasn't surprised when they tried to go a new direction with the PS3 PoP, but was really dissapointed at the lack of difficulty, and repetitive and overly simple gameplay. If they bring back the multiple enemy combat system, the time manipulation, and the puzzles that are actually puzzling (and require some time manipulation), well I will be a happy camper indeed!November 30, 2009 at 11:17 pm #51425czesionyoMember
Awsome :D. I love old PoP. I heard so many bad thing about the new one that I did not even played it. Hope it was not a mistake.December 1, 2009 at 2:21 am #51438xxKnightmarExxMember

Sweet man ! Prince of Persia has always been one of my favourite on going series , so its good to hear they're going back to the original roots of the game and returning to the original prince ( hopefully ) aswell . I thought the newest installment was quite fun , i didnt hate it , but it still also held room for improvement . Now that we've seen what Ubisoft has done with Assassins Creed II we know they have the potential to make this game live up to the standards !December 1, 2009 at 4:30 am #51439xxKnightmarExxMember

I would say it might be worth a rental. I think it was just a major dissapointment, because they departed from all the things that made the others great. The combat is clunky feeling, and is always one on one, theres virtually no puzzles (I think theres actually 2, total.), the time manipulation mechanic is gone, which was really fun, you can't die, and all the platforming is super super obvious. On the other hand, it is a beautiful looking game, and worth a playthrough. Its still kinda fun the first run through, but I don't think its worth buying.
On another note – I read some more about the upcoming game. It will take place between the events of The Sands of Time and Warrior Within. Apparently the prince travels to another castle to visit his brother, and some sort of crazy crap happens. They've confirmed a return to the root game mechanics, with multi enemy fights, time manipulation, and “epic moments”, which I assume are some sort of QTE scenes or rediculous boss fights. And I'm assuming you can die. yay! I never thought I'd be so happy about being able to die!
So what I'm wondering is, are they ditching the other PoP story line they started and left us hanging with? Or is it just coming later? I'm still kinda confused on that note.
