"With Prince of Persia, Ubisoft has now re-invented Jordan Mechner's titular royal nearly as many times as the average comic book character's been revamped. This is nothing new, as the prince has seen several makeovers throughout the nearly twenty years since his debut on Apple II. His classic bitmapped incarnation, its acrobatic 3D redux, and his nu metal-laden misfire all share one thing: they put on quite an acrobatic show. The Prince of this newest title is no exception, and Prince of Persia marks a triumphant moment for the series."
