In ancient Persia, a young prince and his father's army raid a city where the prince acquires the Dagger of Time. With captured women of the palace and the dagger in their clutches, the army heads to the palace of the Maharajah to show him the dagger. In the Maharajah's throne room is the Hourglass in which the dagger is embedded into. The prince places the dagger into the hourglass where without realizing it, he releases the ancient Sands of Time. Now with the entire palace infected with sand creatures and dilapidated into ruin, only three remain: The Prince, Farah and the evil Vizier. You must play as the prince and use the dagger as your ultimate weapon with Farah as your sidekick and the Vizier as your ultimate enemy. Written by commanderblue

There is a code you can input upon starting a new game (while staying outside on the balcony) that will load a 3D version of the first level from the original Prince Of Persia game from 1989. While tricky to do (it may take a few tries), and while the level/mini-game has no end (the team didn't have enough time to complete it), it still has two main goals (attaining a sword and getting into the secret room) and it's fun to go and see. Inside the secret room you will find 24 pack cases and empty bottles of POP drinks (a play on the European nickname for soda/soft drink - "pop" as in "bottles of pop" and the Prince Of Persia acronym as well), a giant poster of the POP Team themselves and stands full of Penguin Caffeinated Mints (which explains why the team put the company's credit into the end game Credits). The only sign of what the Penguin stand is, is because the stand logo has one word: "Penguin", a penguin logo and the mainly orange packaging. The company's website looks almost the same four years after the game was made. You can also use the Landscape button to see glimpses into the secret room, and it changes every time you swap screens.

29 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this game you play as the Prince.... The Prince Of Persia ( his name is never revealed ) an athletic fighter new to the battlefield and must undo a mistake that would cost everyone their lives. He accidentally let the sands of time out of a giant mysterious hourglass after being tricked by the evil Viser to do so. Now he only has the help from a mystical dagger called the dagger of time and one of his palaces captured servants , Farah . He must learn to work together with her and use the dagger to his advantage but can he trust Farah who's home land was sacked by his only a few days earlier.....this game brings action/adventure/puzzle solving to a new level , not to mention a fantastic storyline , this game wasn't game of the year for nothing !
