However this is not the untitled prince of the 2008 game, but the old Prince from the Sands of Time trilogy. Gone is the fantastic art. Gone is Elika and her death-defying help. Gone are the one-on-one fights. Instead the Prince gets his time-rewinding abilities back as well as a sleigh of snazzy new elemental powers."
