That is one ugly djinn.
I'm somewhat concerned about the Prince of Persia franchise. Sands of Time is a legendary game, and the series began a precipitous fall in the titles that followed it. The last iteration, an attempted reboot, took the story in a new direction but many lamented gameplay changes -- myself included.
But does the solution to the problem really lie in going back to the same thing which had been going to hell in the first place? That just seems like a bad idea. Grateful to have time-altering sand back in my pants but, jeez, the tale was stretched thin enough already.
