You may certainly have seen this trailer of Prince of Persia a few days ago elsewhere, but it took us all this time to get a good quality version. So there it is, and it's a great trailer!

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.

    rayy @Moonwalker: GTO is really good. One of my favorite comedy animes. You should read the manga after it because the manga goes longer and is better overall, but the anime is good. (3 Hours ago)
