Is this finally a successful revitalization of an old series?

The Good
In Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time you play the prince who of coarse is the son of the king of Persia with a vizier helping them who has more intentions than clear by breaking in the Maharajah’s vault and unleashing the sands of time which turns all but The Prince, Farah the maharajah’s daughter and the vizier because they each have a special artifact that protects them The dagger of time, a Medallion, And a staff.

But the dagger doesn’t just protect the prince from the curse it also allows the prince to reverse time when he gets in a sticky situation and you will need it a lot it’s not so helpful in combat but in the platforming elements it is which sometimes it can be difficult to figure out exactly where you are supposed to go the game has a very storybook type feel having the prince narrate the story.

The Bad
One of the strange things that happens because he tells the story when you die you’ll say something like “No no, no that’s not how it happened” then how does it happen? As if in the middle of the story the listener blurted out “And then you died?”

The combat also isn't particularly good with a lack of moves and the fact you have to finish the enemies with the dagger of time and the only things you can do is a regular attack and what is called a vault in which you jump over the enemy and attack as you come down which later enemies can block which can lead to some frustrating moments but was fixed in Warrior Within but that’s for another review.

The Bottom Line
Overall if you liked the original or you are looking for a fun new action game pick this one up.

Great game for any one.

The Good
Great story line that kept the game interesting. The character design was really awesome and made the game very fun to play. The puzzles were easy enough to solve but weren't to easy. The different swords made combat fun and turning back time was fun and got me out of a couple of difficult spots.

The Bad
Sometimes you don't have enough time to use your time orbs so you just waste time turning time back and forth as you see yourself die several times. Also, i was really confused with what i had to do in the part after you and the girl go into a bath. I had no idea what was going on so i was just going in random doors.

The Bottom Line
A game for all action/puzzle solvers libraries.
