Prince of Persia: The Fallen King (DS)


Touch-screen controls prove to be a double-edged sword in this alternately compelling and frustrating side-scrolling adventure.

Prince Of Persia: The Fallen King


With the recent release of Prince Of Persia on the PS3 and XBOX 360, we all fully expected some sort of loosely made port to the DS or PSP. And for better or worse, we got one for the DS. The Fallen King is a 3rd person action adventure developed by...

There are far better games out there, usually for a lot less money.

Prince of Persia: The Fallen King ..


More like the falling prince.

Well implemented platforming puzzles

Imprecise stylus detection, annoying characters, bland boss fights

It's a shame that the game doesn't match the acrobatic thrill of its next generation cousins, but at the same time you do have to give credit for trying something new with the stylus only controls. A little more time spent tweaking said controls would...

Prince of Persia: The Fallen King Nintendo DS Review


Like the console editions, Prince of Persia is all about the team effort. You'll take control of the prince most of the time, but call upon Zai if you need a wall created or hooks for the hero to grab onto in order to reach new areas. It's an...

Interesting touch-screen controls, graphics embrace the formula of the original Jordan Mechner game, over 50 levels to explore

Repetitive music, wonky controls, Zai is nowhere as good a companion as Elika, nothing to go back to once it's all over

Prince of Persia: The Fallen King for DS puts the hero on a dangerous quest to stop an evil god named Ahriman, who has flooded the land of Persia with a dark oozy corruption. Helping him out is his sidekick Zai, who can conjure up tools that will help...

Prince of Persia: The Fallen King


Nintendo fans have waited years for an old-school Prince of Persia (PoP). After a very successful, cross-platform trilogy in the third dimension (not to mention the latest next-gen release), the Prince returns to the 2D plane for classic PoP gameplay...

Prince of Persia: The Fallen King


As they did with Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft has released a DS version of a game to complement its console counterparts. And also akin to Assassin's Creed, the DS version of Prince of Persia, titled Prince of Persia: The Fallen King, is a poor show....

Interesting story ; Ambitious control scheme ; Great pacing and level design

Inconsistent controls ; Repetitive music ; Annoying boss battles ; Many gamers won't bother to complete the game due to repetition and boring storytelling

Prince of Persia: The Fallen King is a fairly traditional platformer. You maneuver the Prince and Zal across the screen, avoiding spike-filled pits, falling blocks, spinning saws, and other dangers. You will fight the odd guard, but these fights are...

Stylus over substance

Of course, the reality is that sharp metal objects are more fascinating than slightly chewed biros

E3 2008: Hands on with Prince of Persia: The Fallen King on DS


Conjuring compelling action on DS is a tough proposition, with few games managing to unleashed a satisfying experience.

Here, you're guiding the Prince through 2D levels with the stylus activating all manner of acrobatic moves and magical abilities. Everything is stylus-driven, yet the gameplay is firmly rooted in the tradition of old-skool side-scrolling action and...

Consumer review by:

Worth a rent...


If I had bought this, I would have been a bit annoyed - the story is very basic (Bad is taking over the world, you're the Good who has to stop it..) and not at all helped by the addition of 'Scrolls' throughout the level which are presumably there to...

Prince of Persia


Not good, childish graphics lead you to believe this is going to be a fairly easy game, not at all in fact its teeth grindingly hard in parts and mind numbingly boring in others, if you're expecting something as accomplished as assassins creed forget...
