    Largely missed opportunity. Those who loved the original for its setting and style will be disappointed and put off by the direction the series has taken.
  2. 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.

    This a great game but not as good as other entries in the series, the Prince isn't as an enjoyable character as he was in Sands of Time, inThis a great game but not as good as other entries in the series, the Prince isn't as an enjoyable character as he was in Sands of Time, in this he comes across as a guy to tries to hard to be a bad ass, the combat is cool and more brutal than it was in Sands of Time, and the plat forming is even better, and the story is pretty cool, it's still a great game with good controls, while I can recommend this don't expect it to be as good as Sands of Time.
