World Village (Gamer's Zone)
Prince of Persia, I'm happy to report, is still a delight. Oh, it's challenging as &*%$#@, especially for the keyboard-impaired who cannot keep up with the pace of the action, but it's still a hoot. In the first game, you are imprisoned by the evil Vizier Jaffar, who has taken over in the Sultan's absence and decided to marry the Princess, your betrothed, himself. In the sequel, having defeated Jaffar's plans once, you are once again put upon to overcome great odds to defeat the Vizier's nefarious schemes. What this means is that each game is filled with plenty of jumping, running, crawling, leaping, falling, and swordfighting to fill any great action movie.

Revisiting the past with The Prince of Persia Collection is a mixture of the good, the bad and the utterly boring. In this case, packaging two such similar games as one play experience shows how little changed between the two releases. Allowing a long rest between the games reduces that "been there, done that" feeling and prolongs the enjoyment. For those with the original games, the collection offers nothing new.
