Times Online writes: "Prince of Persia is a classic series of Arabian Nights adventures. You play as an acrobatic rogue who must leap, slide and clamber from palace balconies or sprint up castle walls in a dizzying display of gymnastics.
In this instalment, you and a mysterious princess must defeat a dark god. The dark-fantasy style of recent episodes has been swapped for a more cartoonish look and the results are spectacular. The title's crumbling towers and ruined palaces are a wonder to behold, but the real enchantment is in the gameplay. The excellent control system emphasises timing over complexity. The princess provides you with useful backup - by pressing a button at opportune moments she will help you to leap huge gaps or slay fierce demons."
