Summary

A game that will blow you away!

The Good

I love the way the makers of this game maintained the atmosphere of the predecessors although this game is in 3d.

You will be dazzled by the amazing graphics, sounds, and levels.

The Prince has been invited to King Assan’s (the Sultan’s brother) castle to celebrate (or rather ruin) the Prince’s & Princess’s marriage, it turns out that King Assan is furious that the princess did not marry his son, Rugnor, and it also turns out that the princess has been kidnapped, and (much like the original game) the prince is thrown in the dungeons and has to fight his way out to save the princess.

The Bad

I am disappointed (although I like this game) that this game has completely lost the platform genre of its predecessors, the game also suffers from camera angles that go wild while trying to avoid traps making it very annoying to avoid these traps.

The Bottom Line

My personal rating for this game is 9 out of 10, so if you feel that you can take the challenge, buy this game, sharpen your sword, and embark on adventure of a lifetime.
