5.0 out of 5 stars Very good title with no DRM! December 12, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is how PC titles should be released!

1. There's no DRM at all. Ignore the rumors that it "phones home". It only connects to the Internet to automatically update (at your option) and to play a video from UBI's website. If you disconnect completely from the Internet, the game STILL PLAYS FINE.

2. The game plays well on older hardware. It even runs smooth on Radeon 2000 series graphics cards and Pentium 4/D CPUs at relatively high resolutions.

3. The game's actually fun! Controls are wonderful, especially if you have a gamepad. Mouse/keyboard is functional.

Please support this title. UBI is really taking a risk using no DRM. Show them that they can trust the PC gaming community. Purchase this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserving of attention December 12, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll start by saying that this game is amazing. The platforming is fun, the combat, while simple, has an amazing combo system that you can spend quite a bit of time researching.

The story is interesting in that you can get as much (or little) backstory as you want. It's up to you to talk with Elika and get it. If you're more interested in the action, you won't be forced to watch long cut-scenes or learn about a history you don't care about.

I actually play this on my 360, but I'm putting my review under the PC section because Ubisoft deserves to be praised for deciding to ditch DRM on a high profile title like this. In a time when SecuROM is getting more and more invasive, it's a breath of fresh air to see a major publisher go against the grain and offer a quality product that doesn't give the actual consumer a headache. The consumer will not be punished with secret installations of a software that behaves just like any other malware.

I encourage all avid PC gamers to vote with their wallets and pick this title up. It helps that the game is also worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Live the Prince! February 22, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It is one of the games that will never say "Game Over"; it is this strategy that keeps one busy playing till you get your moves right and move forward to the next level.

UBISOFT also made an intelligent move by making this game DRM free and no copy protection whatsoever that most of the users will appreciate and this trust that UBISOFT has placed on users like us will surely make them buy products from UBISOFT again and again.

I have played all the Prince of Persia games since the good old Prince of persia-1 came about 15 years back, I love the storyline, Agree it has changed a lot over the years and graphics have become more intense but there is this magnetic attraction that draws users like me whenever we hear about a new release of prince of Persia and we surely play the game to get the thrill of it.

Prince of Persia 2008 is no different. The graphics are smooth even on modest PC with very little lag, Game play is immersive and conversations between Prince and Elika keeps one busy climbing and jumping and solving puzzles.

Again the main reason for the success of the game play in Prince of Persia (2008) is due to new supporting character, Elika, has a large role in game play, in that she saves the Prince from death while in combat or exploring the world. The Prince cannot "die" in this game, as Elika will save him from any danger and bring him back to the last safe point of the game. also UBISOFT's smart move to make this game DRM free. Thanks UBISOFT for trusting users like us we appreciate it.

Buy this game and support any and all software companies that trusts their users and release games like this completely DRM free.

Cheers! Buy this game and have lots of fun time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sure Buy! December 12, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Buy this game. Its a great game in typical PoP fashion, with the added twist of having an entirely AI companion throughout the game. And this is not even mentioning the fact that it ships WITHOUT ANY TYPE OF DRM WHATSOEVER. None.

So, in short its fun gameplay, great puzzle solving, great freeroaming dynamics, and no headaches whatsoever. Its definitely money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding PC game with reasonable reqs and no DRM! December 14, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is a great reboot of the PoP franchise. The controls are intuitive, although you have to almost "trust" them. You would expect it to be complicated, but it is deceptively simple and elegant.

The amazing this is that the game looked incredible on my laptop! Most recent PC games won't even run on my laptop, but this one looked great.

The environments are gorgeous, and the atmosphere (something that has always been an Ubisoft trademark since "Beyond Good And Evil") is engrossing.

The combat system is very fun. I've never really enjoyed the combat system in previous Prince of Persia games, but this time they made is very easy to get into, but there is a great deal of depth which makes it great for experienced gamers as well.

UbiSoft has made the decision to make this game a test as well. They want to see if removing DRM will help the game sell better. Another reviewer here said "vote with your wallet". I agree completely. This game is well worth the money, it provides a great deal of entertainment, and it casts a critical vote against the use of DRM in the future. You can't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game December 12, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ubisoft always applies excellent craftsmanship to a game, and this is no exception.

The art is excellent, the controls are excellent, and most important, the gameplay is excellent. And as always, Ubisoft actually finishes the game before the release it (I'm talking to YOU EA and Sony!)

Ubisofts games usually work best on a console, due to embarrassing DRM problems, but there's no DRM here. No SecuRom, no Sony rootkit, no destruction of resale value.

If you like the POP series, this is a must have. If you haven't played the POP series, and enjoy innovative gameplay and controls, you will likely enjoy this game.
