I accidentally bought this. I added it to my amazon cart because I had a limited time $5 coupon on a pre-order, but I decided I didn't want it... but it shipped a day early, so it was too late to cancel by the time I decided to!

That said, I got it with a pre-order price guarantee of $29.99, and then $5 off, and free shipping... so $25 total. It's probably worth that.

not even available on uk steam store

amazon says released june 11th (again amazon will send it and sell it cheaper than steam ever could which defeats the point of having it)

Amazon is often very much cheaper... they even have old games for very cheap a lot of the time, as cheap as a weekend deal on Steam. The only real issue of course is waiting for the mail to come!

Isn't this PoP pretty meh. Fighting is almost a button affair like Fable 2.

The less/easier fighting in PoP the better, really.

But it's fun. Was awesome in Sands of Time and Warrior Within. Flipping over guys, cutting their heads off, that is what being a Persian Prince is all about. ::bleh::

I hated... HATED... combat in Sands of Time. Actually I don't think I ever completely finished the game because combat toward the end was so prevalent and terrible.

Of course I hate hack n' slash games in general.

Really? It's rather simple, that's why it's so fun. Then again, Steam probably sabotaged your version, which is impressive as I'm guessing you played it before Steam released.

If you practise you'll get better Velvet. Otherwise stick to the one button mashers. Like the double click test box in Mouse Properties.

Is Steam going to come up in every freaking conversation I have on here now? Really?

If we don't, you'll mention it yourself, remember the last time you started arguing with yourself?

I forgot I got sands of time, and warrior within with it too', So 3 games I got with my 49.99 purchase. I already had sands of time but didn't have warrior within.:D

So how does it compare to the last one? I thought it was pretty epic but collecting the lights thing was kinda lame and how about some screen shots.

Well THAT came out of nowhere. This game is awesome!

It's basically Sands of Time with ten times better graphics and smoother combat. The visuals are stunning, it is the Assassin's Creed engine but it runs at a smooth 60fps on my rig no matter what on max settings... textures are great, mouse and keyboard controls are great. Platforming feels real, like you are doing it, rather than the auto-pilot feel of the last game. Combat is fast-paced with no blocking, you have to dodge enemies and constantly attack. You get life from smashing boxes and killing enemies, not from water.

If you liked Sands of Time at ALL this is a MUST purchase I would say. I feel like I stole something getting this for $25, it's epic and I am so surprised... I was going to cancel my order, but I am glad I forgot.

That's because it really uses multi-cores instead of relying on raw power (this is the case in AC2). Check the multicore usage under Task Manager ;)

Thanks for the screenshots. It does look pretty great and it sounds pretty great too. Iím going to have to pick it up for sure. I've been reading and checking out the vids, sounds like they are pretty proud of being able to have up to 50 some characters on the screen.

Yeah, it's cool at first with the battle scenes, then later on it means fighting like 40 skeletons and such at once! The combat is really fun in this one, in Sands of Time I suffered through the combat to get to more platforming but in this one I enjoy both.

A couple more notes:

1) Amazing opening cinematic... I miss cinematics.

2) It fills a 16:10 screen, unlike many Ubisoft games.

Good to hear. I still have a billion other games to play, (including FFXIII) so I might grab this laters, prob on sale. I still haven't played the PoP before this one either. ::(:
