The Dreamcast Arabian Nights, now for the PC, with less bugs!
Prince of Persia 3D is a game that was originally designed for the Dreamcast, where it was an ambitious game, though one pretty much riddles by control and camera issues. At any rate, jump a bit in time, allow Red Orbit to be bought by The Learning Company, work a little on fixing the basics and port the game for the Windows environment, and this is what you get: a Prince of Persia game that stands pretty tall in comparison to the Ubisoft series though never really got that good. What Sand of Time will come to do better, at a higher level, Prince of Persia 3D did just alright; there are wall jumps, there are puzzles to solve, there are spikes to avoid and all of that, but, as I said, in a more constrained type deal, in a less engaging envelope. Certainly though, if, for some reason you want a more grounded Prince of Persia in 3D, this one can really do the job well enough, plus it doesn't look half bad. So yeah, for acrobatics fans and for sword and melee fight lovers, this can be as good as any other era third person, an adventure that won't let you down.
