  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.
  2. Feels more like a prologue than an epilogue because the story has no end. It is fun to play and puzzles are better than in the original game. [Apr 2009]
  3. If you're after more antics with the prince and princess, then I would recommend this additional content, as a worthy addition to the game. If you're still up to your eyeballs in the original then I would say hold off until you've fully exhausted the game first.
  4. Unless you absolutely thought Prince of Persia was one of the great games of last year, it’s truly hard to recommend the Epilogue to you. Sure the new level is great and the story is as we’ve come to expect from the series, but after the short 2 hour burst, there is nothing left to do.
  5. One of the Achievements to nail in Epilogue is to complete it in under two hours. So, you’ve paid 800 points for two hours of additional content that, on balance, isn’t really all that good, and does little with the narrative save to clumsily set up Prince of Persia 2.
  6. Features superior platforming, but we don't appreciate having to pay to see the game's "true" finish. [June 2009, p.95]
  7. 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.

    POP Epilouge is a good DLC. It gives us some new gameplay, added to the story, and it's cheap. Really the only bad thing is that the ending was pretty weak and had no substance. Expand
