As a conclusion let’s see how much fun the game is on a scale from 1 to 10.
OVERALL FUN-FACTOR — 7
I marked it down from an 8 to a 7 due to some in-game glitches that have seen quite a few players left stranded and unable to move forward. This was never patched, but Ubisoft have suggested a workaround.
As for the music, graphics and everything else, as a whole it is absolutely fantastic fun to play through. I loved it and if you’re a Prince of Persia fan I’m sure you will too, so check it out.
