    So Ubisoft is offering a net savings of $15 on the game from Amazon with the code POPERSIA (until release, of course). Before that, I was going to wait until reviews came out to order it, but it's tempting. But, again, it is still a movie-tie-in game technically, so I don't know what I should do [​IMG]

    Recommendations?

    It may be a movie tie in but Ubisoft see it as a separate game from the film. It has its own story. When they put effort into a game it usually ends up worthwhile, especially if its one of their most love franchises.

    Previews have been very promising, some say its a lot better than the other versions and it could be one of the best PoP games since Sands of Time.

    You'll be paying $35 for it, so it's not that bad. Unless you're planning on buying something else with that cash (like saving for SMG2 or Metroid: Other M or some other title), I'd say go for it.

    I'll be downloading it myself.

    I'll be getting both the 360 and Wii versions of the game (assuming they get decent reviews). I love platforming games like Prince of Persia.

    A PAL version was dumped a few days back but the scene didn't take it or whatever that release was by iCON. Never actually tried it yet.

    There is an official USA release right now Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands USA WII-PROMiNENT.

    Yeah I think they have the same story but different levels and the Wii one is supposed to be better.

    PSP version is out there too, looks pretty good. Its more of a side scroller.

    It loads via USB fine on IOS 249 with the anti-002 fix. The game freezes at certain point, likely because its update isn't installed. Now waiting to see if the new update is safe.

    And what update is that? There's no IOS version(s) in the update that aren't already available.

    Guys, the Wii version is truly horrible, don't buy it by any means, try it first from torrent or wait for the reviews, but trust me on this one, the prince now is retarded, the game has nothing to do with the sands trilogy, it has a fairy and from the moment you take control of the prince it feels cheap, rushed and has worst graphics than the gamecube or PS2.
    PS: I'm a big fan of the series.

    Played the wii version for 15min before it froze. Either you are trolling or you have a very bad taste (and blind?) since the graphics are amazing for wii, the controls are fine and overall the game felt really good and refreshing. Hopefully more games like this come for wii!

    By that I know you haven't played it, you've seen some bad res youtube vids and you are trolling.

    Gave it a spin, it doesn't play like a Prince of Persia game but it certainly isn't horrible. Graphically its what all Wii games should look like, lots of detail though the water parts are flat and could be better. Seems to focus more on acrobats then the last load of PoP games and that is welcoming as only Sands of Time was the one that I can go back to and enjoy.

    Can't say I'll ever go back to it once I've finished it, its one of those typical 7/10 games. A good time waster but will only serve as a footnote in gaming history.

    So far it is a lot better than the decent enough 2008 game that I cannot remember the name of, it may not feel like a PoP game but its more so than that one.
