Although it looks like just another platform game, Prince of Persia takes a fresh angle on this popular formula. Instead of the usual arcade-style running and jumping about, the gameplay is fairly sedate and, for want of a better description, far more realistic than anything I've played before. You have to think about where you're jumping to, whether to haul yourself up a level or cautiously drop down a floor. The realism is further enhanced by the outstanding animation. The movement of the main character is truly brilliant and is easily the most realistic I've seen on a console game - this is a game you really have to see to appreciate. The only thing I was slightly disappointed with was the combat - it's all a bit weak and the parrying and thrusting could have been made far more realistic. But really that's a minor niggle, and it doesn't stop this being an essential purchase for platform/arcade adventure fans
Prince of Persia är kort och gott ett bra spel. Det enda som irriterar är att den läckert animerade gubben är lite svår att flytta på, och att man inte alltid ser riktigt hur han står. Innan man blir van drattar han i avgrunden och pajar ihop rätt ofta, men man lär sig snart dubbeltrycktekniken. Klart köpvärt för alla 8-bitars äventyrare.
