"When last we saw the Prince of Persia, he was gloomy, decked out in guyliner, and one step away from listening to My Chemical Romance. Reactions to Warrior Within and Two Thrones were mixed; though the gameplay was generally appreciated, the Prince's emorific demeanor was not, so Ubisoft wisely decided to reboot the franchise with the most recent entry in the series. Simply entitled Prince of Persia, it beautifully recaptures the spirit and flavor of the older games, but ditches the cock rock, the chicks in metal bikinis, and most of the controller-throwing frustration. You may as well go ahead and update your holiday wishlist now."
