Original P.O.P

Does anyone remember the original Prince of Persia game? It's one of my favorite classics.

Yeah, that was a great game. I had it on the Amiga and enjoyed it immensely, although it's habit of saving your position back to the game disc always filled me with dread. In those days it was "good practice" to keep your floppies write protected...

I did start playing it again when Sands of Time came out, since you could unlock the original game in that. Brought back some memories, but I never got round to completing it again.

I love the new series. After playing S.O.T and unlocking the original I found it very hard to play. It seemed so slow.

POP, what a game, many happy memories playing that.

And to 'kinda' follow it up, POP 3D anyone!? with Sands of Time was a great feat. I have to admit to not liking the sequels following it though. Going from the beautiful Arabian atmosphere and art direction of the original to the rawk/grunge/goth banality of its sequels was too much for me I'm afraid.

Still I'll always remember my little mouse friend from the original.

Here's hoping the new Tombraider can pick up where SOT left off...

I've made known my disdain for Warrior Within before, but Two Thrones wasn't actually that bad.

It's biggest problem was the stupid difficulty spikes with end of level monsters, especially the final boss which I'm sorry to say I had to cheat to get past in the end due to getting overly irritated with it. A shame because the last little bit set in the Prince's brain was really nicely presented, even if some of the background speech was a bit cheesy.

I'm looking forward to the new Tomb Raider as well. Might give me something to play on my PSP again now that I've finally completed Mercury...
