Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is a complex remake of a 2003 release action adventure game called Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The game was developed by Ubisoft, namely the Ubisoft Mumbai and Ubisoft Pune studios. The authors of the original were also involved in its creation; the father of the brand Jordan Mencher was a consultant in the pre-production phase, while the Ubisoft Montreal team (who created the original) provided the developers with their motion capture equipment for the session.

Plot

As in the original, in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake we play the role of the prince. After a successful assault on a maharaja city and the possession of a dagger that allows for the reversal of time, the protagonist falls victim to a conspiracy plot plotted by a treacherous vizier who, in order to gain immortality, persuades him to free the Sands of Time from the giant hourglass. The real chaos will unleash then, so the heros has no choice but to try to restore the old order and curb the plans of the sinister old man. The prince is not alone, as he can count on help from the maharaja's daughter Farah.

Mechanics

In Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake the action is observed from the third person perspective (TPP). During the game, we travel through a variety of locations that catch our eye thanks to oriental architecture, solve environmental puzzles blocking our way, overcome numerous traps and field obstacles, and fight against encountered enemies. The clashes are dynamic, and during them we have to show above all dexterity and reflexes. If we make a mistake in the heat of battle or while walking through fortified locations, thanks to the power of the dagger we can fix it by moving back in time. However, the matter is complicated by the fact that our capabilities are limited by the number of titled Sands of Time, so it is worth saving them. Interestingly, the original Prince of Persia game, which started the whole brand in 1989, can also be unlocked here.

The remake is unique in its ability to freely control the camera. Besides, the authors modified the control scheme so that it does not deviate from modern standards, and also looked at the combat system, making it more responsive and diverse. In addition, difficulty levels have been introduced that have not been found in the original; they appeared only in its sequels.

Technical aspects

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is based on Anvil technology, in the version that powered Assassin's Creed Origins. Although the game looks clearly better than the original, its graphic design is not impressive, even despite its fairytale style. Moreover, for this project the entire soundtrack known from the original was remastered. It is also worth adding that although the main character is once again played by Yuri Lowenthal, this time Farah's voice was lent by actress Supinder Wraich.
