"Prince of Persia is one part fighting, two parts talking, and three parts running and jumping. After a while, with monotonous swordplay and a flat story line, the game becomes quite boring. The story isn't too interesting (plus I'm someone who doesn't usually enjoy video game stories; but this one is particularly dull). In short your "counterpart" Elika's father releases an Evil God, Ahriman, who plagues the Persian landscape with Corruption. Your task, with help from Elika's knowledge and magic, is to heal the Corruption and trap Ahriman once again."
