Anybody who enjoys action adventures should try this game and I can promise him or her without a doubt that they would enjoy every moment of it.
First the good stuff, the characters look nice and control pretty well. You get to control the prince and unlike the other versions, the princess. In that respect, it was like a better executed version of Kim Possible 3: Team Possible. There are also some pretty decent boss fights vs a Griffin and with some exceptions the controls are tight.
Though not the central theme, combat is pretty good. You're mostly using your dagger or the bow and arrow for Farah. The prince is much better rounded when it comes to combat, employing double-jumps, time reversal, time slowing, time freezing, and more. Some enemies can be a little tricky, but if you work at it you can find their weak spots. In boss fights you often have to use the Sands of Time to cause damage. For a GBA game, it's not the flashiest available, but is pretty well executed.
If so many good things, why am I so disappointed? Well, for one thing the length of time between checkpoints gets very tedious. You'll often be asked to make a leap of faith or need to figure out how to get past an obstacle and end up dying repeatedly. That wouldn't be so bad, but the game will often set up three to four of those puzzles in a row, so you have to play through the first tricky one to get to the next, die a few times, then do the third, die another half dozen times, then finally die again a few more times to finally make it to the save point. This is made worse because some of the puzzles require waiting a little while, so you can't just rush through them to the next. It gets old VERY quickly.Read more ›
