  1. I am really excited to see a new game in the Prince of Persia franchise. I liked the last game released, although not as much as the original Sands of Time. I hope they incorporate the old style of combat with multiple enemies.

  2. I agree, Sean. I think the first Sands of Time which re-launched the franchise is still my favorite and it’ll be nice to see them go back to that.

  3. It kinda got away from them with the last prince of persia which was insanely easy. Hopefully they make it a bit less linear in the paths that you can take while doing the climbing and running. I like the dual swords from the 2nd one too. Oh i hope the bring back the CHOMPERS, from the original prince of persia haha. Overall its a great franchise im expecting greatness!

  4. finally they continue the sand of times trilogy, screw the other 2 sequals.
