ST Format (Feb, 1991)
Precise, detailed animation is married with entertaining puzzles to produce a thoroughly absorbing game. If you're looking for something you can impress your friends with and still be addicted to after a marathon 12-hour playing stint, this is it. Let's hope Prince of Persia is about to mark a change in animation techniques so that we can finally kiss goodbye to the laughable character movements in such games as ESWAT, Ninja Remix and Rick Dangerous. If only all games could be like this!

Nevertheless, when you add the atmospheric graphics you have a first-rate arcade adventure. Completing the game will be a matter of trial and error, and the inclusion of a save-game facility helps no end. All in all, Prince of Persia is a great little game that will undoubtedly attain cult status.

Musiken och ljudeffekterna är rätt sparsamma inuti spelet men de är välgjorda och passar utmärkt in i sin miljö. I kombination med väldetaljerade miljöer samt dessa snygga animationer skapar de ett spel med en otrolig charm och dragningskraft. Det är ett sant nöje att kämpa sig igenom de tolv nivåerna än idag och trots uppföljarna klarar det första PoP att fortfarande locka med en spelupplevelse som är tämligen unik.
