    I must admit that I've never played a PoP game before in my life.

    I will start with this game eventually! :)

    • I loved this game and warrior within. Two thrones not so much. This is still one of my favorite games. Oh the many deaths I had back then...

    • Youngsters these days :P The PoP trilogy is hands down one of the best series of the PS2 generation. Especially Warrior Within, it packs some demanding platforming and fluid, dynamic combat. I bet you'll love it, if you don't mind the dark emo-goth-numetal aesthetic (it was the mid 00's, that's how we rolled back then, son :D ). It's a shame they dumbed the mechanics down when creating Assassin's creed series. Highly recommend, go get it :)

Seems to be much more about the puzzles than anything else. The story is pretty simple, get to the hourglass and stop the sands of time from being unleashed. 99% of the game is pretty much just running around the castle trying to get to the hourglass.

    The puzzles are usually quite simple, though they can be challenging at times as well. However the biggest challenge in this game is the controls. Sometimes they function the way you want, sometimes they don't. I had experiences where I'll try a dozen times and fail at a rebound jump, then on the 13th try, without doing anything different it will work. They're not terrible, but I'd say there's something like a 20% chance that certain maneuvers will fail on you.

    The only other flaw I could point out is the camera. It's not terrible by any stretch, but it often gets stuck behind walls or leaves you at a terrible angle during a 10 on 1 fight.

    I know this was their first effort in this series so I am pretty sure the following games will improve on these and other areas.

    The prince has the same voice actor as Sasuke, Luke (Tales of the Abyss), and Byakuya. /voiceactortidbits

    If I had the Dagger of Time, I would probably use it to win scratch-off lotteries. Wait, what was stopping the prince from just reversing time right after the sands were unleashed? O_O

    • Apparently the HD trilogy has a slew of new glitches, mostly audio ones. I've been playing through the second game (Gamecube version) and it apparently is the least glitchy version of that game, and I still get some audio bugs. I've seen some videos though, the games look NICE in HD. Warrior Within in particular was much improved from the shift.

      And yeah, I've always seen Assassin's Creed as a sort of spiritual successor to this series. Emphasis on parkour style platforming with each of their respective first games having pretty meh combat but telling a great story along the way.

    • Yeah, I'd heard that there were some glitches, but wasn't aware of the specifics. I guess if I ever go back and play them I'll have to decide what I want to sacrifice: graphics or audio. Of course, I suppose I'd be sacrificing my preferred controller as well if I went with the PS3 version.

    Very happy I found this today when I was out and about; going to spend my weekend playing it when I'm not watching anything Doctor Who related.

    [+] Prince of Persia news coming next week.

    "Unfortunately, the nature of this news remains a mystery. Could it be a new, proper Prince of Persia game? Sure hope so—fans have been clamoring for one since the 2008 PS3, Xbox 360, and PC title. Could be a new mobile game following the Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and Flame remake for iOS. Of course, consider Ubisoft’s recently created film division—Ubisoft Motion Pictures—it could be a new flick. Whether you cared for the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring Sands of Time or not, it is the highest-grossing video game film adaptation to date."

    Now which series should I play 1st? And I'm playing by the story's timeline too;

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution > Deus Ex: the Conspiracy >Deus Ex: the Invisible War

    Paper Mario > Paper Mario: the Thousand Year Door > Super Paper Mario

    Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time > Prince of Persia: the Forgotten Sands > Prince of Persia: the Warrior Within > Prince of Persia: the Two Thrones

    Metroid Prime > Metroid Prime 2: Echoes > Metroid Prime 3: Corruption > Metroid Other M

    And by the way, I haven't played MOST of these games before.
