It's like an Arabian Nights movie come to life! Plunge into an exotic labyrinth of heart-stopping action, challenging mazes, intrigue, and superb animation that's so breathtakingly realistic it has reviewers raving:
"fantastic...stunning animation." - Game Players PC Strategy Guide
"...a tremendous achievement...the Star Wars of its field. Mechner has crafted the smoothest animation ever seen in a game of this type." - Computer Gaming World
"Superb...an almost cinematic experience." - inCider/A+
"An unmitigated delight...comes as close to (perfection) as any arcade game has come in a long, long, long time." - Nubble
Jordan Mechner's Karateka was hailed for its graceful, realistic karate sequences. For Prince of Persia, Mechner worked from hundreds of movie clips to create animation so uncannily human, it must be seen to be believed.
