fun in parts, repetitive in others
7 April 2018 | by manus byrneSee all my reviews

Prince of Persia the sands of time is a remake of the 1989 prince of Persia after you finish the sands of time you unlock the original prince of Persia. This game starts off good enough, but this game becomes very repetitive because the whole game is in this one castle and it gets very boring. the story is very good but it movies very slowly and goes on for far too long. this game is about ten hours long but so little happens to break up the repetitive gameplay. this game is a platformer and for the most part, the platforming is good. the selling point of the game is the sand of time which in the game is a dagger which can either go back in time or slow down time. the combat is good at the beginning but becomes very repetitive afterward. there are only five enemy types and nothing is done in the whole game to break up the repetitive combat. The game could have been a lot better if it was not so repetitive. all it had to do was make the castle more interesting. have the story move on a bit quicker and add something to the combat. but this game is very fun at the beginning and at the end. That's why I give Prince of Persia the sands of time a 7 out of 10
