Did You Know?


Was originally envisioned as a Prince of Persia spinoff called Prince of Persia: Assassin where you played as the Prince's bodyguard when he was a child. UbiSoft though didn't like the idea of a Prince of Persia game where you didn't play as the Prince so the game was turned into a new IP instead. See more »


Al Mualim: Impossible... the student does not defeat the teacher!
Altaïr: La shai'a waqi'on motlaq bal kollon momken.
[Arabic for "nothing is true and everything is permitted."]
Al Mualim: So it seems... you have won then... go and claim your prize.
Altaïr: You held fire in your hands old man. It should have been destroyed.
Al Mualim: Destroy the only thing capable of ending the Crusades and creating true peace? Never.
Altaïr: Then I will.
Al Mualim: We'll see about that...

User Reviews

6 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's start with the good... - The game is smooth and looks very good - The Parkour is very good - The combat is great - The story is great - It was very innovative at the time

Now the bad... - Incredibly repetitive - Ridiculously frustrating at times - Often boring

Not a great game, but it's playable. The main reason for playing would be the story. I'm just getting into the series, and I wanted to start from the very beginning, which is basically the only reason anyone would ever have to play it.

Compared to some of the other additions in the franchise, this game is horrible. But compared to E.T. The Video Game, this game is The Shawshank Redemption. It's all about perspective.
