Mac|Life has posted a new review of Prince of Persia, the latest version of the popular franchise to make its way to Macs. 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. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.
From the review:
Even though the prince and his helper, Elika, can do dozens of things, the game helps players along to avoid frustration. You won’t need perfect timing to run along a wall, grab a hanging ring, and leap across a chasm. Even if you do fail, Elika automatically rewinds time several seconds, putting you back on a safe platform.Head over to the page listed below to read the full review.
Mac|Life: Prince Of Persia Review
The forgiving mechanics usually give a sense of empowerment and exploration, instead of robbing the game of its challenge. We maintained the characters’ agile confidence while running though the vibrant world, leaping before looking and nearly always catching a pillar, platform, or other just-within-reach object.
Elika rewinds time whenever you’re about to die, such as on the pointy, losing end of a sword fight. These interspersed battles punctuate the quieter, acrobatic substance of the game. Your attacks feel countered by enemies, with the give-and-take patter of a conversation. Unfortunately, we still met enemies that beat up on us for 10 constant minutes, through what would have been dozens of lost lives. Those fights can drag the otherwise well-tuned pace.
