Sega Power ( )

Platforming action at its very best. Huge levels, puzzling mazes and animation that'll simply take your breath away, this is a very, very special game that deserves to be in every handheld owner's library of carts. What are you waiting for? Get it.

A completely brilliant conversion of the classic game, which you MUST have in your Game Gear collection! Need we say more?

If you'd never played any other version of the game, you wouldn't even know there were any flaws at all. The brilliant sprite animation is here. The wide variety of available moves is here. The timer ticking away which panics you into making silly moves is here. The brilliant sword-fighting sections are here. The uncannily addictive gameplay is here. In fact everything is here.

OK Consolas (88 out of 100)

Porque "Prince of Persia" es una delicia jugable que va a hacer las idem de todos los consoleros saltarines de clase "A", "B", "C" y "CH", por ambiente, mĂșsicas, grĂĄficos y, sobre todo, los movimientos de un personaje que mĂĄs tiene que ver con el cine que con el mundo de los juegos animados... TĂ©cnicamente perfecto e infaltable en juegoteca, aunque sea portĂĄtil, alguna.

Grafik und Animation nehmen Ausnahmestellungen ein. Der Sound kommt etwas blechern. Trotzdem ein absolutes Muß fĂŒr die Sammlung.

Schöne Grafik, unterhaltsamer orientalischer Sound und eine interessante Story - schade nur, dass sich das Spielprinzip schlecht mit der kurzen Batteriedauer des Game Gear vertrÀgt und ihr so am besten immer auch gleich ein Netzteil zur Hand habt. Zudem werden auch Profis trotz unendlich Continues noch gut gefordert, daher sollten Game Gear Besitzer beim Besuch der arabischen Kerkeranlagen schon etwas Geduld mitbringen...

Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) (28 out of 40)

I like this version of P.O.P. because you can bring it with you wherever you go. The graphics are very good for the Game Gear and the animation is cool. The sounds are kind of annoying, but expected from the 8-bit hardware. The gameplay is very solid and has lost little if nothing in the translation. Lots of fun.

Retro Archives (13.5 out of 20)

Une nouvelle fois, Prince of Persia aura eu beaucoup de mal Ă  transfĂ©rer efficacement son systĂšme de combat sur Master System et Game Gear, transformant des versions autrement honnĂȘtes en ersatz maladroits. Un choix malheureux et inexplicable qui pĂ©nalise suffisamment l’expĂ©rience de jeu pour recommander de prĂ©fĂ©rer autant que possible des versions plus fidĂšles au jeu de base.

Auch nach der x-ten Umsetzung macht Prince of Persia immer noch Spaß. Die anmutigen Bewegungen des JĂŒnglings samt detaillierter Grafik und knackiger RĂ€tseln sprechen fĂŒr das Game-Gear-Modul, leider ist die Steuerung gewöhnungsbedĂŒrftig - dafĂŒr springt der Prinz so weit wie keiner seiner System-Genossen. In Sachen Spielbarkeit sieht‘s auf dem Game Boy besser aus, dafĂŒr bleibt dem Game-Gear-Casanova Augenflimmern erspart. Wer sich entscheiden kann, sollte die Game Boy Variante erwĂ€hlen. FĂŒr angehende Thronfolger die einzige Alternative.
