Well as the title suggests, I'm not going to really get into it - Just give you a quick overview - I looked for reviews on here before buying the game, & couldn't find one - So maybe this will help you out a bit.

- This is a turn based strategy game much like Advance Wars.. only not nearly as fun as Advance Wars at all - You are given a deal of cards & you can move them to the opposing enemy & attack.. but theyre just cards - you cant control what your army is like.. & after a while, the game feels lame - However it is a great game to play once in a while.. although it lacks the ability to hold interest - If you're interested in following the story line, theres also a lot of reading.

The game appeals to mostly an older audence of 17 & up - However theres a thin line between making a strategy game for older people & just making a game that feels lame after a while

The whole card thing was a bad idea - You see the battles scenes when your cards attack or get attacked.. but its the same thing over & over

If you haven't gotten Advance Wars yet, get that instead - This Prince of Persia game just feels like a rehash. Id recommend getting this only if you really love Advance Wars.

I have never owned a hand-held game system until my sons got a DS Lite for my 40th birthday. Prince of Persia Battles is the first game I played, and coming from a table-top wargaming background, I thought this game was excellent.

Playing as a general of an ancient army, you maneuver small, medium and large size units ranging from archers, spearmen, swordsmen, cavalry, and even war elephants against an opposing general and army in a wide variety of offensive and defensive missions. Your ability to command is effected by how many cards your general rates every turn. You can play these cards for their order value, i.e. a selected card may allow you to give orders to 3 of your 12 army units for a given phase of the turn. Or, you can play a card for an effect, i.e. enhance the defense and armor values of all units within command range of the general.

As you progress through the story driven campaign, your earn new cards after battle victories. Some of these cards, which you can trade with other players via wi-fi, are very unique and provide very interesting and colorful ways to going about winning the day on the battlefield.

I like the artwork alot and have to say the game designers did a great job of creating very historical looking units. For those of you looking for something a little more "epic", don't worry. There is an evil army that brings various monsters and giants to the field of battle. Don't underestimate the enemy giants. Yes, they look brutishly stupid but their ability to hurl huge boulders at great distances in the midst of your peasant archers makes for a bad day!

When I heard that the Prince of Persia will be making an appearance on the DS, I was thinking, Ubisoft would do well by not turning it into some lame 2D platformer. Well, they didn't. Instead, they totally revamped people's impression about the Prince of Persia series, and turned it into a turn-based strategy game! Now, I'm not exactly a fan of this genre, but I did enjoy Advance Wars DS. And, to a certain extent, the concept works pretty well, even though it could've been a little more polished.

The story of the game happens between the events of The Sands of Time and Warrior Within, so it has been billed as "the lost tales" of the Prince's adventure. The game plays like the usual strategy game. You know, you'll be in-charge of a group of soldiers, and you'll go into the battlefield, attempting to conquer a map with whatever resources you've at hand. There's quite an impressive array of men that you can use - swordsmen, artillery, archers, etc. Obviously, they'll also have their respective strengths and weaknesses, and it's entirely up to you to decide how you want to approach an area. So far, so good.

Now, the gimmick of this game. Battles of Prince of Persia actually uses a card-based battle system, which basically sums up how the tactical battles are fleshed out over the course of the game. When you enter a battlefield, you'll hold a deck of cards. Most of these cards are your usual command cards, but some of these are a little less ordinary, allowing you to drastically boost your troops or decrease the morale of your opponents. If you've played Dynasty Warriors before, think of these cards as a substituition for the Rally and Roar commands, for example.

I have had this game for several years now and am just now reviewing it because I happened across it and saw there weren't many reviews, and the reviews were just okay. Basically, the game reminds me of the card game Magic meets the video game Age of Empires. Growing up, I was a pretty big fan of both games, so needless to say, I am a fan of this game. It is like Magic in that you create a deck of cards that you play with, each card having unique abilities that help you either with power-ups or attacks or defenses. You play as many or as few cards as you want on each turn, and some cards last for several turns and some are instant. Once you have moved all your men or pass, your turn is over and it is the computers turn. As you play the different levels you "win" more cards so that you have a whole slew of cards you can choose from to make the deck you think is best to play with. So, that is how it is like Magic, now, how it is like Age of Empires. It kind of reminds of the crusades mode of Age of Empires, where you are only given x number of players and you have to complete some said mission, basically killing all their guys or protecting something for x number of turns, and you move your guys around on a large map. If you like Age of Empires and Magic, you will probably very much enjoy this game. If you only like one or the other, you may not. However, it is probably more like an active version of Magic than like Age of Empires. It is definitely targeted more for older teens and above. I am 27 and enjoy it very much; however, I have yet to finish it because each battle usually takes roughly an hour, and you usually don't want to play more than 1-2 battles in one sitting, at least I can't find the time. Plus, I like to jump around from game to game instead of focusing on just beating a game and then moving on to the next. Out of the 80 or so video games I have, I have probably only finished 10 or so, so don't let my lack of finishing it deter you from giving it a try.
