    Looks like a good game gameplay wise, but I do think the graphics are a bit too mediocre.
    If they polish that up a bit, this really can be a terrific game.

    My only big concern is the motion controls. If they just went with simple button controls and used the point for Sand Powers I would've been satisfied. Motion controls in these types of games rarely work well.

    The graphics look good, personally.

    I hope the end game comes out well, Prince of Persia is a series that shouldn't go into the realm of mediocrity. If it should die it should be sudden and through lack of games, not through continually shitty games.

    I agree.

    I am a bit worried about this game. I hope it doesn't turn out to be one of those games that look neat as a bystander, but ends up sucking once you dig in.

    graphics look great, game technics as interesting as always, looks like they made improvements,
    i feared that the wii version will come along with that ugly ubisoft standart look.

    i am bit worried they havent said anything for the DS... it may just turn out to be a "for the heck of it" (the ds one)
    the DS seems to be the forgotten one... this looks very nice more like PoP TT with newer ideas (which was a great game)
    it seems like the controls may be an issue cuz although the features are great but will it be difficult to play it (like PES 2010 which is a great game but difficult for starters)
    i would love to play it

    I like the one-on-one battle-system of PoP08 way more then the one of the original SoT-Trilogy so I`m a little disappointed, that they made this decision... It wasn`t bad back than but I just liked the new one more.

    Other than that the game looks great and I really welcome it, that they made the game harder then PoP08 and that you need to be accurate again with the acrobatic moves (PoP08 was still an amazing game though!).

    I`m gonna play it on Wii and PC... So I`m gonna play two new PoP games [​IMG] Good times!
