So, this week my blog reviews
return for some fairy tale lovin' and the PS3's latest killer app! This review covers Prince of Persia and Killzone 2. Enjoy.
Prince of Persia
The only PoP game I had ever played before the current-gen title was Warrior Within back on the Xbox. And, while I liked it, I wasnít blown away by it. Luckily Prince of Persia totally blew it out of the water in terms of story, art design, pretty much everything about the latest PoP screams quality. It easily stands as one of the most memorable titles of the last year or two.
From the moment I started the game up I knew I was in for a treat. The graphics are what I consider magical. They sucked me into the game world and never let me go. I often called to my ex-girlfriend (we were dating at the time I played through it) and told her to come watch because I felt like I was playing a fairy tale. The fact the engine held up the entire game without a hitch of slowdown was a testament to Ubisoft. To me, the game world was as enchanting, if not more so, than my favorite atmospheric game of all time, Shadow of the Colossus, and thatís saying A LOT.
Truly iconic. Good work.
In the end, Guerilla games have created the current killer app for Sonyís big black box of Bluray. Itís a must-purchase for every PS3 owner out there and is a tremendous value. I must admit I canít wait to play KZ3 seeing how fantastic Guerilla has handled KZ2, if only for the fact I want a co-op campaign. Whatís here is downright amazing, though, and should not be missed.
Quick ass review score: 10/10
Thanks for reading!
