Other time-involve games either jumped years forward or back in time, or used cheezy VCR symbols to handle your time changes. In Sands of Time, it's extremely easy to use and VERY handy. You fall off a ledge? Just slide back in time a bit and try again!
The graphics are just amazing. The character moves fluidly, and the combat sequences look like a well animated movie. The character can run along walls, do back flips, climb poles, leap chasms, and much more. When he runs along a wall and passes a banner, the banner ripples in the wind. The attention to detail - from shadows to textures to torches flickering and water rippling - is just amazing.
Part of the game is slaying your enemies in new and interesting ways. But part is negotiating the terrain and figuring out how to get to the next area. Some of the puzzles are straightforward - run along the wall, jump up the ledges. But others are far more devious and require a lot of thought to get through.
There are many great releases out right now that we are enjoying greatly, but Sands of Time is the one that always draws the most fascinated reactions from friends. They comment constantly on the graphics, animation and gameplay while we move from scene to scene. It's like poetry in motion. And it's fun.
Highly recommended for someone who is looking to really enjoy the game as a visual feast while reaching their goals.
When the poor 3D version debuted for PC a few years back, nobody was really surprised that it was poor; from the earliest preview screens, the game reeked of a formulaic approach to try to "update" a game that had no need of updating. The result was, well, expected.
When Sands of Time was announced, I barely let it register. Oh, great, I thought, another Prince of Persia game. Didn't they already try that? Why not just try updating Asteroids again? It would be cheaper to fail at that.
Well, my foot's in my mouth pretty deep right now. Really deep, in fact.
The new Prince of Persia is among the best games I have ever played in my life. It falls just a teeny bit short of legendary status - It's not quite the legendary, genre-defining stuff of Mario 3 or Half-Life - but it's very, very close, and it easily ranks as my favorite game out right now.
What sets this game apart is apparent from the instant you start playing it. Gone is the feeling that this is a rehash - everything is new while maintaining the spirit of the original games, from the Prince's ninja-like acrobatics to the music to the storyline. It all comes down to this, possibly the highest compliment I can pay this game:
If the original Prince of Persia had been made in 2003, this would be it.Read more ›
The game looks great! Not just are the graphics very good, but UbiSoft is also introducing a new way of presenting a jump-and-run game to the player. While most of the time the camara is behind the player as in most other jump-and-runs, it also moves around whenever something special happens. Example: When the prince runs up and along a wall, the camera moves to the side to show the best possible perspective for the action. This is more like a movie than a game as far as the presentation goes. And the most amazing part is that this does NOT interfere with the gameplay. One would think that all this moving around would confuse the player, but it does not, because it is done very well. To me, this is a major advance in gameplay. Many player may not even notice the effect or think it is a small issue, but it is really a major leap forward towards providing a much more immersive experience.
Luckily, this game has more going for it than just visuals. The best part is probably the gameplay. The prince can do things that are breath taking, yet they are easy to pull of. This makes the game a lot of fun, because it makes the player feel good about him or herself. At the same time, the game is not too easy. In fact, the game has a number of difficult parts, although asides from one battle, I didn't find anything that is really frustrating.
So is there anything I do not like about the game? Well, the camera could be a bit better at times, although it has been majorly improved over the demo versions that were available before the game shipped. Also, the game says it is Xbox Live enabled.Read more ›
