The console versions of Prince of Persia offer some bonuses, in addition to the main adventure, of which the most notable is the inclusion of an unlockable port of the original version of the game that started it all. Unfortunately, for some reason, these bonuses have been omitted from the PC version (which retails for less, as if in exchange). Still, perhaps you remember the original Prince of Persia, which influenced games like Tomb Raider and pretty much every other game in which you can grab on to ledges. The original game presents a stark contrast with the new installment of the series in just how punishing it was. On the other hand, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a game that can be recommended wholeheartedly. It looks fantastic and features responsive controls, some original play mechanics, a good story, and plenty of thrilling adventure. In the simplest terms: Do not miss out on this game.
