    This game could have been great, but the unresponsive controls make this game frustrating to a point where it is not enjoyable any more. The demo was real easy and I thought the rest of the game would be a little more difficult but not to the point where you repeat the same 30secs about 100 times to get to the next checkpoint. Level one was easy, level 2 a little bit more difficult level This game could have been great, but the unresponsive controls make this game frustrating to a point where it is not enjoyable any more.

Level one was easy, level 2 a little bit more difficult level 3 starting to get frustrated level 4 impossibly hard. The combat system is slow and unresponsive making it almost impossible to kill the tougher bad guys. The only thing this game has going for it is it looks nice. Expand

    Prince of Persia Classic is certainly short, but it's oh so sweet. This is one of the best games released on XBLA to date and the template all future enhanced classic games should follow. If it weren't for the brevity of the experience, POP Classic would be, well, an instant classic.
  2. Survival mode is where it's at in terms of ultra-difficulty - completing all levels without a single death requires a superhuman level of dedication.
  3. Prince of Persia has always been about getting through each challenge as quickly as possible, thanks to the one-hour time-limit on the game. Thus, it makes for a perfect Live Arcade action game, as it basically comes with built-in leaderboard support.
