High Score
Persiska nätter med en vacker prinsessa och modig ung man i huvudrollerna. Mycket bra plattformsspel.
Video Games & Computer Entertainment
The latest cartridge version of "the game that won't disappear" won't disappoint Genesis owners. There is plenty of action for die-hard Persia fans and the few newcomers, but, if you already own a version, there isn't enough new here to buy yet another.
Mega Fun
Domark hat es geschafft, die Modulversion besser zu machen als die Mega CD-Fassung, die Frage ist nur, ob das so schwer war. Jordan Mechners Kultspiel bewahrt auch in der neuesten Version seinen Charme, obwohl sich so langsam die ersten Ermüdungserscheinungen zeigen: Man(n) weiß einfach zu genau was kommt. Daraus resultiert natürlich eine stark eingeschränkte Kaufempfehlung, denn Prince Of Persia ist nur für diejenigen interessant, die das Spiel noch niemals zuvor gezockt haben. An die SN-Version reicht Domarks Prinzenmodul nicht heran, dort sind Grafik und Sound einfach um Klassen besser.
