  1. The tone of the game has gone from an Arabian Nights fantasy to something akin to a Marilyn Manson music video. In dark and grimy settings, the once gallant prince curses and jeers as he swings his sword at demons whose decapitations are lovingly shown in slow motion to a soundtrack of screeching guitars.

    The first new prince of persia game was good, but this is just a copy from the first one with all the aspects worse than before! The jumping The first new prince of persia game was good, but this is just a copy from the first one with all the aspects worse than before! The jumping scenes are more tedious and boring than before. The atmosphere is just depressing, not scary, and it remains the same all the time. The rock music doesn't fit at all. I guess they tried to improve the fighting system, but the ugly truth is that it just feels complex with all the weapons and "combos" but in the end often the best strategy is to just tap the same button. And the map system is also crappy as it doesn't really show anything concrete. I hate this. Full Review »
