I recently got to play this game at a PS event and the game looks amazing. Like a living comic book.

Probably one of the best trailers I have seen for a game. Might as well be a movie trailer or a music video

Why do the Ubisoft guys always choose the least appropriate songs for their trailers. They started it with Assassin's Creed and it goes on with the Prince. But the game looks absolutely fantastic, nevertheless. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

The track is called " breathe me " by Sia

awesome trailer, the art direction is stunning and the animations look amazing...

Because the contrast moves people. Well some people anyway. Including me.

I thought the trailer before this one was more powerful though, not least because of its even more haunting music.

Amazing trailer, hope the game holds up well.

people who cant sing shouldn`t do songs for trailers..other than that this looks really cool!

Really beautiful trailer. The game looks great and the music really does it, the song just blends beautifully with the slow-moving imagery. Really nice.

edit: I'm sorry but for those complaining about the music, no offense but you have no idea of how to do things right. The same thing happened with the Gears of War tv ad that featured Gary Jule's Mad World. But well I guess you just can't expect everybody to be able to appreciate it the way it should.

the difference: in the gow trailer (which RULED!) the song was sung by someone with an actual voice. in this one the voice constantly breaks and just doesnt`sound right, imho.
anyways - the game will rule!

Thing is I just watched some of the gameplay trailers and what annoy's me is the American prince character voice, it sounds sooooo cheesy and the Sands of time prince was in My opinion WAY better...

Now I haven't commented in this thread because my comments would be the same as the rest of the POP threads, but you said what I was thinking.

PS. Music sucks because it doesnt fit the theme of the game.

I mean having the prince narrate the entire game and having him sound like an arab prince made it much more authentic and put a lot more emotion into the game then this cheesy american guy making smart ass remarks....

He didn't sound Arab, it was some American/English accent.
Commented on 2008-10-11 12:57:38
Arab?

He aint arab :P

You mean as a middle eastern accent or persian accent.

But yeah I know what you mean.

They should have atleast have a accent, not broken but atleast something than having a native US american language, just feels like out of place.

Hmm, maybe I should do the voice over for the prince, I got more experience with english with persian accent, I am persian afterall ;)

But seriously, I am not looking forward to the game that much, they have done so much wrong with the game, that the only thing they got right is 2 things.

You are right I did mean more middle eastern. I was just a generalizing a bit.

It's just weird in my opinion, I mean Nazi's in Call of Duty don't sound chinese now do they?
Commented on 2008-10-11 15:20:40
Yeah...well I am still very skeptical about this title.
Only one weapon type and that gauntlet throughout the entire game...boring.

I remember when I played Warrior Within you could pick up any weapon from the ground that belonged to the enemy and even dual wield various weapons, but now, you wont even have one different sword.

It feels like they have gimped down Prince of Persia ALOT, so much for the next-gen epic prince of persia title.

It's good..i mean going back to the mythical elements

Prince of persia sands of time was a good tale, the following sequels were dark..

now we are going back to the magic, wander and mythological elements..it's going back to how the original story was..

A tale of wonder, and i think the game will provide that.

Gameplay looks great, the prince can do some awesome things and i really like how the AI works with you, she is a part of the prince in battles, they are working together to take the bad guy down and the whole cinematic element is great..

and i do like how the prince is just one of those guys who wants to make money, get with girls and make more money on the way..like i said, it's all going back to the story element..

by the end, the prince will change and the AI character will deeply change who the prince is, and this is their tale in my opinion
