Heal The Land In Prince Of Persia

Macworld has posted a new review of Prince of Persia, the latest version of the popular franchise. In the game players take the role a new prince who must use his special gifts to assist the Princess Elika in her efforts to heal the lands. Macworld gave the game a score of 4 out of 5 mice.
From the review:
One of the hopes I had for this new Prince of Persia is that it would have better writing. It doesn’t, but you’d only notice it if you allow the characters to talk. If you press T on your keyboard to talk, Elika will recount plot points or the blatantly obvious tips throughout the game. For a more enjoyable experience, never press T.Click over to the link below to read the rest.
Macworld: Prince Of Persia
Anachronistically, the dialogue is written for a hip twenty-something audience and performed by voice actors with American accents. The dialogue has moments of genuine humor but the gravity of the world’s plight is lost when your two leads seem to be channeling Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Alba, respectively.
Elika is a worthy sidekick because she can unlock powers that are quite useful (though the odd flight sequences are strange and unnecessary) and she’s not your typical oversexed damsel in distress (except for her ecstatic moments when she’s healing the land).
There are rarely moments in gaming as purely fun and liberating as jumping around the well-constructed world of Prince of Persia, full of obstacles, rooftops, and open areas. This alone makes Prince of Persia worth playing. The visuals are stunning and the environments, though repetitive, are vast and fun to explore. Thank the Assassin’s Creed Schimtar engine for finally opening up the world of Prince of Persia. The camera system is also much improved over the previous game.
