Did You Know?


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.

The first in a rather good three set of games.
27 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

Yes, this is the first game in a three game set with the Warrior Within and the Two Thrones to follow. This one was really good, though for my money Thrones was the best. The weakest was Warrior Within. This one has the prince raiding a country for their treasure. One of these treasures is the dagger of time which is the main source of power for the prince during the game. The prince's father is killed and the sands of time unleashed as people in the kingdom are turned into sand monsters and such. The prince must navigate this world fighting the sand monsters and navigating steep cliffs and traps and such as he tries to put everything right. The dagger of time gives the prince powers too, as he can kill the sand monsters and do various things with time including rewinding it to avoid death. Speeding up time to kill enemies more quickly. See into the future to find out clues to navigate through certain ares and so forth. The best parts of the game to me were the levels where you had to do acrobatic wall runs and such to get through areas. Then other areas you had to fight...these areas were a bit more of a pain and less fun. Though the fighting became more fun once you got a certain sword as it was easier to kill the monsters. There is a lack of boss fights in this one that drag it down as I only recall the one at the end with the main villain. So incorporate the fighting and the acrobat levels a bit better and make the fights more fun and you have an even better game and for my money you have The Two Thrones.
