Prince of Persia: Artistic direction

Prince of Persia: Artistic direction

Ubisoft released the third Prince of Persia developer diary, this time about the game's very interesting artistic direction. It's also a good way to discover some beautiful environments, but they *really* need to fix that awful tearing.

i don't find the visuals outstanding or horrible.

what fascinates me more is what the actual game is.. Gameplay looks awesome and the game itself looks like an unbroken tale (no sudden stops to battle random enemy after another)

Really like the acrobatic elements, prince is very acrobatic and even if you fall from doing a certain jump, you can still find your way to your target, which is very nice.

i am in love with the art direction of this game. a must buy for me,Pc version no less, this game cries out for some serious V-sync and AA, both of which my PC can provide ample. the only thing is i'd like to get the trophies with the ps3 version. damn

it's artistic design is awesome, it's scale is enourmous, it's sound is fantastic, the gameplay is intriduing ... everything screems epic and then they had to implement those stupid b movie action flick / sitcom dialogs that totally take you out of the experience T_T ... *sigh* for the love of god replace that with some kind of fantasy language noone can understand and this title is a winner

I agree with Lafiel!

That and give us more various sword style to choose from!

This is a big step BACK from the previous titles, the only thing it got going on is the artistic approach, Elika and the music, thats it.

Sure the combat seems to be good, fast and pretty intense, but one enemy at a time and no other weapon throughout the entire game...seriously?
The last titles let you pick up pretty much any weapon on the floor and even combine them into dual daggers or swords.

    GriftGFX I mean they can keep upgrading it but why bother when they have more capable engines already. (11 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it shows its age in a lot of ways in FC5 and they have better tech so they should use it. (11 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth if they still pay royalties to crytech when using it they probably should (11 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Although I think it's kinda time to retire Dunia. (11 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @HR2: a lot of studios used modified UE3, games like Arkham Knight, XCom2, both being very problematic on pc. Interesting to see what those studios will do for their next games. (11 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @HR2: Ubisoft uses their own engines. They have like.. three solid in house game engines. (11 Hours ago)
  • HR2
    HR2 @Melmoth: agreed. speaking of Ubisoft, I wonder which engine they're using for the next Splinter Cell. a heavily modified UE3 like Batman AK or UE4? (11 Hours ago)
