MacLife Review: Prince of Persia

MacLife writes: "Don't be disappointed when we say that Prince of Persia is all about movement; this isn't Woz dancing with stars. (Oh wait, he was the star.) Prince of Persia makes wall-running parkour look like toddlers at a playground. Your characters stick vaults more cleanly than Russian gymnasts and free-climb like geckos. While the game stumbles once in a while, your sure-footed characters carry the excitement. Well-paced sword fights and other action peaks help the prince excel.

The simply named Prince of Persia--loosely part of the same-named 1989 game's lineage--lifts controls from an Xbox 360 gamepad. You can play with a keyboard and mouse, but the game feels arduous without a controller. The left joystick moves the prince, the right joystick moves the camera if needed, and the buttons interact with the storybook world.

Even though the prince and his helper, Elika, can do dozens of things, the game helps players along to avoid frustration. You won't need perfect timing to run along a wall, grab a hanging ring, and leap across a chasm. Even if you do fail, Elika automatically rewinds time several seconds, putting you back on a safe platform." (PC, Prince Of Persia) 4/5
