Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was amazing. I think we said: ‘genius.’ The game was an action adventure offering in the truest sense of the term, featuring beautifully detailed levels, environmental puzzles, and, of course, the acrobatic Prince of Persia himself.

Unfortunately, much of the game lacks focus, and the experience suffers for it.
Danish developer IO Interactive had created a memorable character with the original Hitman but it wasn’t until the sequel we saw the true excellence this game was hiding.
