Is anyone excited for the recently announced remake of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time? Have you played the original? Will you be buying the remake or even preordering it for the bonuses? Is there anything from the original game you hope gets carried over or expanded upon? Or is there perhaps something you hope gets cut from the game completely?
This is a game series that I have played only three games in the series and have no real strong attachment or nostalgia to. I only half liked the first, found the second one frustrating (especially to get the canon ending which was hidden behind a secret) and sort of enjoyed the Wii port of the third. I think the remake looks interesting and I think I’d be willing to give it a chance, but don’t think I’m going to preorder it. I’m hoping that health upgrade secrets are slightly more rewarded by finding hidden or alternative paths and that the combat itself feels more fluid than it did on the Gamecube version and that a mechanic to maybe carry a certain amount of water on your person might be a thing (assuming drinking is still the healing mechanic).
