  1. The game has an innovative use of time travel that doesn't include a cat with a vacuum cleaner or a hard drive to enjoy.

    It's a nice game when you're on the go and the gameplay is OK too, but there is no real thrill since the AI sucks and the levels all look alike. Full Review »

    Quite different from the careful movements and slow controls of the original prince of persia, this remake is a blazing-fast platformer that plays like the classic SNES Aladdin (now available for GBA) with shades of Castlevania: Symphony's RPG and adventure elements. While it feels and plays great, it's pretty generic, with elements from the Big Console version of the game, like rewinding time and extracting sand from enemies, feeling somewhat tacked-on. The game is very fun for the first hour or so, but gets somewhat monotonous, an excersize in run-jump-slash trap. All in all, this is an above-average platformer, but a Prince that falls short of its original Ancestor in terms of innovation and design. If you're a fan of smooth-as-silk platformers, take this one for a spin! Full Review »
