For a game that seemed to be put together rather hastily, Prince of Persia: The Fallen King had all the elements it need to be good, if not great. PALGN can forgive the lacklustre story and presentation, as there have been far worse on the DS. They can't forgive however, the fact that the input recognition is just not up to scratch. You'll get through the game and you'll be able to everything that you are supposed to do. Unfortunately, this will only be after you've been back to the checkpoint several times.
Prince of Persia: The Fallen King has some good ideas but ultimately is let down by being rushed out the door.
