Welcome to Persia

by wfgodbold

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time rebooted the series after years of inactivity (or bad 3D attempts at new Prince of Persia games).

The game follows the adventures of the eponymous Prince (who gets no other name) as he helps his father conquer some nameless country (in India, I think), and falls into a trap laid by (who else?) the Grand Vizier.

The prince wisecracks his way through the game, and once he obtains the dagger of time, he can rewind the flow of time.

This lets the player recover from certain death; if you miss a jump, or fail to dodge an attack by a sand zombie, you can rewind (as long as the dagger has enough charges) to before the misstep and try again.

The Disney adaptation was decent, though they toned down the prince’s sarcasm a bit, I think. Probably to make it more family friendly.
