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.

An average action game with attractive graphics.


Parents need to know that this "Everyone"-rated Prince of Persia game is tamer than its console or PC counterparts. Not only is our hero a pint-sized cartoon but combat is far from graphic. There is no blood or gore when fighting with swords or magic.

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...

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...
