It’s unbelievable to think that nearly three decades ago, the very first Prince of Persia title brought big innovations to the gaming table. The series’s debut title in 1989 was one of the first games to include inertia. Recklessly running ahead without checking your footing and velocity meant a trip down to a spike-filled doom. With several ports and sequels, the original Prince of Persia trilogy set a standard for character animations as well as a new way of thinking about platforming.
It wasn’t until the early 2000s, during the 6th console generation, that the titular Prince returned for some more adventures through ancient Iran. With so many games far ahead in the platforming space, the question was how would this classic game capture the imaginations of gamers once more. The answer was in high-flying acrobatics. With a brand new story concept involving the mystical Sands of Time and lot parkour-based action, the Prince’s homecoming was a spectacular one. All of the vertigo-inducing platforming was complimented by flashy wall-running mechanics and aerial combat that made you feel both powerful and stylish all in one go. It’s no wonder the Sands of Time series is getting a remake soon.
