For this year probably no game has incorporated it better than the ‘Prince of Persia'. Almost everything from the original Jordan Mechner game and character has changed here and this is definitely a different Prince. The look of our dear Prince has been changed too. More graphic detail has been added to him - he now has a muscular body rather than the light athletic body he had before and his face has turned from Aladdin-like to being raggedy. This Prince looks more of a vagabond than anything else.

In most of games main focus is on killing enemies, but in Prince of Persia (2008), the focus is on resurrecting people! In that way, this is a 'constructive' game rather than a 'destructive' one. But fans of the previous Prince games will find this one very easy to play. There are helpful hints such as homing orbs strewn around everywhere and there are more tele-porters now, which makes Prince's task much, much simpler. If you sit at a stretch, you could complete the game from start to finish within 12 hours.

However, these changes are definitely not to indicate the game is a poor show. On the contrary, Prince of Persia is one of the most visually stunning and the most engrossing games of 2008. If you are able to lay the mantle of the previous Prince aside, which should not be too difficult to those who have entered later in the series, you will thoroughly enjoy our new avatar of the nameless Prince. There is definitely a good storyline, though not much of a continuation, and the most significant feature of the game is the fighting action. If you are fans of sword fighting in games, Prince of Persia (2008) holds its ground just like its predecessors have.

The most unique and interesting aspect of Prince of Persia (2008) is the character of Elika, whose father has helped to release the evil god Ahriman. She is Prince's loyal and trusty sidekick during most of the game. But no, Elika is not just a sidekick, she is much more. She is a complete parallel character, and you are playing not one but two characters here. There are some interesting features put on here. When the Prince jumps, Elika will jump with him. When he walks on narrow ledges, she will hop on his back! And if he happens to fall off vines, she will grab his hand and pull him back! In this way, the Prince of Persia (2008) will never get over abruptly because the Prince dies. Because, as a matter of fact, he never dies!

Now, if you like that bit about Prince of Persia, go ahead and play this game by all means. Despite the sea of changes, the basic maneuvers of Prince, such as jumping, swinging, wall running, etc. are all there. There is also an amazing roof running feature that is sure to make you press the action button again and again just to see how Prince does this act.
