New Releases 12/1/2008: Return of the Prince

We’ve made it to December and hopefully your wallets are still in one piece and  you have managed your time properly so that you could play all the great games that have been released thus far. We get what may be the last big release of the year this week. It’s the reimagining of a beloved franchise with an eye-catching art style that will be closing out the year.

The Prince of Persia (Xbox 360, PS3) franchise has been known recently for the ability to control time and run around walls in a pretty well done 3D world. The newest installment, which forsakes a subtitle, ups the acrobatics but eliminates the time control powers and adds a new, cell shaded art style that will catch the eyes of new and old fans alike. The addition of a female sidekick, Elika, gives the ability to perform even more acrobatic movies with some tag team action. Large scale boss battles are also back as the game goes for a larger scale as the prince battles evil once more.
