    A gorgeous and athletic blend of platforming and exploration only occasionally hobbled by its controls.

    The Prince of Persia series gets yet another modernized port, and the App Store is all the better for it.

    It's not the 1993 original, but dodging traps and cutting down monsters as the re-imagined Prince is still a fun way to dive back into its universe.

    Torn between the two princes, Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame can never quite find its own identity. It's fun, but it's flawed too.

    Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame's handsome visuals and exploration-friendly levels can't quite make up for the game's control issues and bland fighting sections.

    Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame leaves too much to be desired, both as a remake of the original 1993 game and as a modern mobile game.

    There are so many things you could buy for $2.99 – a candy bar, a couple of lottery tickets, or most of a bottle of Charles Shaw wine. Any of those would be a more sound investment than Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame. For a company like Ubisoft—one that usually releases fantastic games on multiple platforms—to drop the ball like this can only mean they’re cashing in on a fairly renowned series as quick as they can, leaving Prince of Persia fans feeling burned hotter than the Persian sands.

    It's a really well realized game, graphism are great and on Android touch control are completly ok even if not perfect at the begining (learning curve is a little bit difficult). Like the story and sound too Overall is great I would just need a LOT more level because it take only 2 hours to complete. Collapse
