Did You Know?


Despite favorable reviews, much criticism of the game was directed at its dark tone, highly sexualized characters and graphic violence, as well as the Prince's new appearance and disposition. Fans complained that it all seemed far removed from the 'Arabian Nights' inspired look from its predecessor, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2003). 'Sands of Time' co-creator Jordan Mechner also voiced his disapproval of the artistic changes made by the design team. No doubt this criticism led to a return to the more cheery and lighthearted atmosphere seen in its successor, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones (2005) See more »


At an early point in the game, Kaileena mentions that she knows about the Dahaka. However, near the end of the game when it appears in front of her and the Prince, she seems to be completely unaware of what it is. See more »

Great game
2 April 2009 | by ruffinelli_roSee all my reviews

This game came to me by accident. About two years ago a friend of mine was trying to install it on his computer, but luckily to me his computer was not running very well so he asked me if he could give it a try on mine. I had very little idea about the game, a couple of years before I watched the Two Thrones announce but still it didn't appeal to me.

When I got to play this since it worked very well on my computer I got instantly dragged into the world of Prince of Persia again (I used to play the first installment of this series a long time before). I think this is an excellent game. It has everything in the Adventure/Action genre. You are able to perform incredible acrobatics in order to avoid the classic traps from the original game (Blades, those sharp thing that come out of the floor, etc.) You have tons of deadly combos to use in the different minions, but above that all is the use of time. The features to control time are for example going back for a few seconds (to avoid a fall for example) slow motion for everyone and everything except for you, increase your speed, etc. with incredible results.

Even if the adventure takes place in a castle (and a bit in your ship), it's still a really big castle where you can get lost(I don't like games that show you every step to win them, therefore you never get lost and always know what to do without doing some exploring, like God of War, which was the only title that I liked despite the characteristic mentioned above). So you can be sure there's a lot of adventure in Prince of Persia.

Many people don't like this new aggressive, darker prince, but I think it works better this way. The prince is a bit soft for my taste in "The Sands of Time" and in "The Two Thrones", and I said a bit because he is a terrific main character. But I prefer the non-typical hero, and this darker prince fits that role very well. The other two titles intended to be little funny while this one didn't. An example would be some conversations between Farah and the prince in "The Sands of Time" and another would be a conversation between the prince and the dark prince in "The Two Thrones". Now about the soundtrack, there's no doubt that the other two surpassed this one. That is the only negative aspect I found in this title.

Overall this game is really great and might be enjoyable for everyone. It is for me the best game in the sands trilogy. It kept me wanting more.
