Top Customer Reviews
- 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.
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!
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.Read more ›
