Remaining true to the original series, Prince of Persia 3D seamlessly combines the fast paced combat of a fighting game with the depth and challenge of a timeless adventure.

Your bride, the Princess, is taken hostage and condemned to marry her cousin, the hideous Rugnor. And your quest to save her begins in a dark prison, armed only with your wits and the clothes on your back.

Between you and your beloved stands a host of bloodthirsty enemies - but your weapons will only take you so far. You will need a keen mind to unravel the countless traps and devious enchantments that await you. The slightest hesitation or errant step will have you gasping your last breath.

Reviews:

Just Adventure by Randy Sluganski

"In 1989, Jordan Mechner released what was probably the very first arcade game to provide a detailed storyline--The Prince of Persia. The plot, while not very original, was the stuff that classics are made of: love's labours lost and regained with some healthy bloodshed and decapitations thrown in for good measure (this is, after all, the world of computer gaming). A sequel followed, The Shadow and the Flame, and now ten years have passed and the Prince (also referred to as the artist formerly known as #@^) is back in glorious 3D. Don't let the 3D fool you, though--the motion-capture technology and platform feel of the original are still very strong."

"The puzzles mostly consist of activating secret levers, pushing and pulling crates, unlocking chests, discovering hidden passages and avoiding traps. It is not an adventure game in the traditional sense, but if you have played and enjoyed the previous installments in this series, then you already know what to expect. You will die in this game. You will die more than any other game you have ever played. But that is part of the attraction: figuring out how not to die. Also, kudos to Mindscape for resisting the urge to turn this game into a bloody gorefest..."

"If you are a patient gamer and if you like to proceed in small intervals and not defeat a game in a week or two, then PoP3D is for you. It is an action game for the thinking person. A game where strategy and planning are more important than a quick trigger finger and lightening reflexes. Highly recommended for the adventure gamer looking for a change of pace."

Four Fat Chicks by Old Rooser

"With this latest iteration, we find our hero, the Prince, needing to escape the confines of a dungeon, find and rescue his wife and, if he has time, save the kingdom from evildoers and their henchchicks. This establishes the framework for an adventure that wonderfully combines puzzle-solving, acrobatic jumping, and exciting fighting."

"The fourteen levels present a range of beauty, clarity and complexity—from the dungeon to the rest of the palace, the floating ruins, the dirigible, and the Tibetan cliffs. Motion-capture video enables an impression of moving through an entertaining, cartoon-like film (cf. Aladdin). Indeed, violence and gore (adjustable) are inoffensive, and I can fairly safely recommend this as a "full-family" adventure activity. The intent of the publishers, with Mechner's contribution, was to have a 70% to 30% adventure/fighting balance, and I think they've succeeded fairly well."
