  1. Epilogue offers nice entertainment to prolong the Prince of Persia experience, and that lasts around 2 hours. In terms of duration its cost is very questionable but its gameplay is an interesting challenge, a fact that the original lacked.

    Prince of Persia Epilogue is very short experience with an ending that's less intriguing than that of its retail counterpart. The new additions are nice, but this is really just for fans of the first game who want a little more. And I do mean just a little. This shouldn't take any seasoned POP player more than two hours to beat.
  3. A very good addition to a good game, but it is lacking in the style that the original was known for.
  4. The original's art style divided fans, but at least in Epilogue we can all agree to being disappointed. [June 2009, p.107]
  5. Is it harder? Absolutely—but it's also not nearly as much fun, the witty banter between the Prince and Elika is gone, and the ending leaves the player, and the Prince, wondering just what all of the effort was for. Combine that with the short play time (about two hours) and the recycled enemies and you're left thinking that your ten bucks could have been better spent elsewhere.

    For only 2 hours, it is extremely overpriced, taking into account it is the same very easy or very frustrating combat and recycled enemies including the Warriror (need I say more?) Full Review »
