    What a game.

    Installed it on my pc yesterday, and it really brings back the feel of the original. With blade dodging, hole leaping, slabs crumbling and enemies to dispatch with such an enjoyable combat system it's really good.

    I would recommend a gamepad, (ps2 or xbox controller using usb link is the best) as the mouse and keyboard controls get a little fiddly.

    Overall i would give it a very healthy 9/10 :smashin:

    Is this out on the Xbox ?

    I ask because I have it for the PS2 but its still in the cellophane and I'd prefer it for the Xbox.

    Ah darn it. I really wanna get this game but it comes out on the Gamecube next year. I can't get it for XBox cos my Dad would never let me on his XBox to play it and I really don't wanna buy the console that I hate the most to play it. The PS2....:thumbsdow

    Would the US version work on a non-chipped PAL XBox? I've heard that many Ubisoft games are mult-region.

    Is this game as frustrating and annoying as the original?

    Not at all, it is sublime! A couple of the puzzles are tricky, but don't take too long to figure out!

    Very good game, but too easy by far. I actually like a challenge when playing a game, but this was as challenging as putting on a pair of socks

    Agreed, it isn't that difficult but the game is so gorgeous to look at and plays like a dream.

    I find the xbox version controls a bit iffy, esp the running up the wall part where he tends to run of in a mad dash to dead and not the way you intended.

    One problem with the game that i can find... I'm on the Observatory part of the game, where you have to move the blue, green and red light thingys to get to diffrent platforms... well, everytime i try and swing to the platforms, the prince misses the vital swing pole, lands on the platforms and dies. This happens every time. Is there a way i can do a little swing jump to catch the pole.

    This is 71% into the game and i'd rather buy 10 more copies and burn them all than start again!!

    :mad: :mad:
