Not quite up to snuff with the original
24 February 2004 | by (Colorado, USA) – See all my reviews

I'm not quite sure what I expected. After all, it was only 5 bucks. The plot feels almost identical to begin with. Jaffar shows up, kicks you out of the kingdom, and the princess will die within 75 minutes unless you save her. Mechner throws a new flavor in by taking you out of the kingdom and around the world (in 75 minutes?), but none of the gameplay feels right anymore. The animations seem to conform to the quicker, less detailed process rather than the smooth style of the original. You do, however, learn more of the prince's past and background; and there are some new, deadlier traps that give new challenge to fans of the original. Maybe Jordan Mechner fell victim to the same laziness that has plagued the Star Wars prequels.
