Not too shabby, but I'll definitely give it a rental first since it may retain some of that clunky gameplay from previous POP games.

The animation still doesn't look believable enough for my taste, and the environments could use a little bit more mood, more flying dust, mist...etc.

Its a remarkable action-adventure game in its own account but man it does not cater for "Prince-of-Persia"-ness. The environments are so European, with windmills and canyons, the main character is so anime looking with Dragon Ball Z lookalike hairdo___placing a scimitar in his hands and fixing some arabian arches randomly in buildings does not go for the required asian/assyrian/persian feel the game deserves.

the trailer is very cool ... especially because it doesn't show a single of those very cheesy dialogs that unfortunately are in that game *sigh*

Personally I think its too far from the original. Its looking a lot easier and stuff, and I really liked the combat in PoP. I think this looks like a pretty great game, but I think it needs to notch up the difficulty. Plus the enviroments feel a little big, which makes it seem like there are less choices, because outside enviroments have less surfaces and stuff... I duno, I will have to try it out to see if its worth a buy too though.

And I love the engine. And the prince actually IS pretty persian looking, which I was surprised by when I saw a good close up of his face. Gorgeous game though. Might be worth a buy just to see it all the way through haha.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (22 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (23 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Feels so much similar to Watch Dogs 2's mechanics, minus the best parts. (24 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I understand what the developers are trying to achieve, but the execution leaves much to be desired. And make no mistake, this is a collect-a-ton open world first and foremost than a TPS game. (25 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts are too predictable. Didn't have any challenge to it. But it's not all bad, the chatter between the team members is really nice and the customization is great. Graphics are very good, minus pop-ins. (27 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Can't put my finger on why exactly, but if I had to guess is because the shooting is so bad, and in a TPS game, that's basically it. The areas you explore are really good, design wise, but the enemies (29 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts It's a Ubisoft game by the numbers. It's like playing Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Watch Dogs, etc in a military setting. Had fun checking lists and collecting stuff, but it feels hollow somehow. (30 minutes ago)
