Prince of Persia screen revelation

Prince of Persia screen revelation

Finally, will say some, Prince of Persia: Prodigy is unveiled through these first screens with an awesome style. Really, it's wonderful, and gives Level 5 a run for its money in the graphical domain. Big surprise for me, knowing this game will be released before the end of the year.

If the whole game looks like you're walking through an artbook(amazing background detail), then I see nothing wrong with this graphical style.

The graphics look NICE!

I am just a tad worried however because I haven't been a fan of Ubisoft games this generation. I thought Assassin's Creed was shite.

wow, and at the end of the year you say!? Colour me impressed!

Love the style.

Big fan of the art style. Hope the gameplay either has little-to-no combat, or a combat system that is less God-of-War wannabe.

You say that as if there could be something wrong with the style.

This looks to be probably one of my favourite looking games ever. There's plenty of colour, but good taste prevents it from being tacky with its colours; it's cartoony but dark. The detail is pretty sweet as well. Plus, I'm diggin' the design of the Prince and the one monster thing in the screens.

Before we saw any Ninja Gaiden 2 screens/footage, I was either hoping Team Ninja was going to go uber-realistic with its design or go for something like this. NG2 would've been pretty sick looking like this with its insane speed, crazy effects, and geysers of stylized blood.

The art style is incredible! Hopefully the gameplay delivers, then it's a first day purchase.

cell shaded was not the way to go with this game. people are saying how nice the graphics are, they are as nice as a comic strip.

Cell shaded was easily the way to go. People are saying how nice the graphics are because they are absolutely stunning.

Some comic strips are nice looking...and by "some" I mean Calvin & Hobbes.

i really dont like the artstyle. its not that it isnt impressive...becasue it is. it works well for crackdown and it looks to be working well here. i just dont think this art style works very well with the POP series in particular. i dunno. so far im not digging it tho.

Can't say I agree about this looking next gen. I assume there's still work to be done. I like the direction it's headed, but I'm hoping this is early yet.

It's not supposed to look "next gen." It's supposed to look current gen, which it does.

jesus that is hard to seperate from concept art, looks awesome
Commented on 2008-05-22 04:29:50
Honestly, it doesn't look THAT good to die twice. But it does look nice.
Commented on 2008-05-22 04:36:44
YES! YES! YES! I love it when designers get creative with games! The colors, characters, style... awesome!

It looks like it was painted with watercolors. Beautiful.

They must have felt proud of the Naruto engine and thought that it could work on other franchises. I defiantly like the look of the character in the second image.

I do think that this is going to drastically change the feel of the game. lets just see if they actually spend enough time on character animation or if it ends up all jerky and quick.

Considering how well other PoP games animated, I'm not too worried.
Commented on 2008-05-22 04:56:54
Maybe they decided to do this because in the POP games its always someone telling a story. This could just be someone ...reading a story? Hense the whole artwork feel.

there is nothing "next gen" about this, this could be done on a ps2.

"next gen" should not be cell shaded! that was last gen attempt to make a game look better than the hardware could support and have room to slack on graphics because it really isnt that demanding. a "next gen" game should push the graphical limits and reallity, this is not even close.

it doesnt take a next gen console to play a comic strip. its a glorified comic come to life. the type of detail in this game is like a drawing nothing graphically complex, not going to push the consoles with this one.

imagine if gran turismo prologue was done in cell shading, that wouldnt even be close to what it is now, no one would say that it was a next gen game and no one would praise it.

That art style is quite something :D

I have no faith in Ubi. They simply cant deliver AAA tittles.

Nice art direction though, heavily inspired by Shadow of the Colossus and Okami adapted for american teens.
