Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, gets my vote for best video game of 2003. It takes everything I liked about the Tomb Raider series, and improves upon it tenfold. I mention that fallen angel of a game series, only because it's the same type of game at heart. Block and jumping puzzles mixed with a healthy amount of combat, and a dash of exploration. If you liked Tomb Raider, like I did, then you will lose your mind playing POP.
This game lets you rewind time when you mess up, a feature I've never seen before. Bar-none the greatest video game feature since the continue became the industry standard.
The graphics are top par, exactly what I've come to expect from Ubisoft, who's previous game Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell had the best graphics I'd ever witnessed. Add in an slick and amazing combat system, silk smooth character movements and controls, and a flawless control interface, and you have a game that rival developers will be hard pressed to top in 2004.
This game is that damn good. Take for instance, the t.v. spots that have been airing. Most games show FMV cut-scenes if that, but POP shows actual shots of the game. Yeah, that's what the f-word I'm f-wording talking about!
THIS GAME IS WORTH IT. Sell your body to get a copy. Sell your body thrice to get the cash to buy the XBox to play it on. Sell your body several more times if the money is good.
