Default Re: Prince of Persia (2008) Official Release Thread

I picked this one up too. I expected to see a literal remake of the original, but its nothing like it. I give it a 9/10 overall. I'm enjoying it.

After playing it a little while, for some reason, I started having flashbacks of the game Overlord. While we have no minions in this one, its oddly similar in layout. Just imagine the little Seed Orbs in this one as Sheep in Overlord. Then in Overlord we have certain areas controlled by some sinister ruler that the Overlord must destroy...same in this one. Is it just me having these thoughts?


Plays super smooth maxed out here. No bugs at all.

I like this game too. Having some weird save issues though. Aside from that, it's a fun little adventure game, though it's a bit on the shallow side.

Yeah its good, just uber samey.

The combat feels a bit pointless too, Im hitting something that blocks me all the time, so then I have to sit, counter and hit it a few times before it counters me. Then never kill it. More lower level fun enemies to practice my combos on pls.

In case anyone is interested newegg has this game for $7.99 now with free shipping. It's also DRM free so even though I am a bit ticked off that the extended ending DLC is never coming out on PC I bought it anyway.
