Ace Gamez Review: Prince of Persia

Ace Gamez writes: " Still seen as one of the best games of the PS2 era, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was a classic in every sense of the word, one that brought the platform game into the twenty-first century with innovative use of the environment, beautiful animation and a feature that allowed you to rewind time to avoid death and correct your mistakes without lengthy backtracking from the previous checkpoint. After bestowing this system upon the amazing Race Driver GRID, the Prince must find a new way of coming back from an early death. Your companion Elika is the answer, but does her ability to prevent you from failing make this far too easy for all but the casual gamer?

The most obvious change to the series this time round is its graphical style; rather than utilising the realistic visuals seen in the last trilogy, Ubisoft has instead opted for a complete overhaul and a brand new cel-shaded style. This sets the game apart from its predecessors immediately, looking more beautiful than the series has ever done before; both the environments and the characters that inhabit them have a 'brushstroke' quality to them, with vibrant colours and textures bringing the world to life in amazing high definition. The Prince himself looks more elaborate than ever, with a headscarf that trails fluidly behind him, and everything from his mighty gauntlet to his complicated arrangement of clothing has been brought to life perfectly, topping the already stellar visuals found in the Sands of Time trilogy. If you want some HD eye candy then you've come to the right place."
