4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but Temperamental, 14 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (PS2) (Video Game)
From the moment you start playing PofP you will find it a wonderful visual experience. The graphics are possibly the best in a game yet, you actually feel like you are playing within a Disney animated film. The plot is good enough to remain interesting.
I liked the ability to rewind time, as there is nothing more irritating than accidentally falling and having to redo an entire scene again. The rewind came in especially useful when the camera angles did not allow you to see what is happening and you had to jump as if blindfolded! That is the main problem with this game, and why I am only giving it 4 stars. There are some serious problems with the camera angles, so that you can not see around you when you zoom out, and more frustratingly sometimes no matter what camera angle you use, you remain obscured behind a wall, flag or some other object. There is also a problem with the was use of the directional buttons. Several times in the game I found that you actually had to aim in another direction (not necessarily opposite) to get the Prince to move in the direction he needed to go.
I found that after the first 10% of the game, it did not get any more difficult, as you had already learnt most of the skills necessary to continue. This leads to a feeling that the levels and puzzles are a bit repetativeThe only time this was not the case was when, towards the end of the game, you no longer have use of the dagger and therefore the power of the sands – it is then you find just how much you were using the power to rewind time! Expect about 12 hours enjoyable gameplay.
