Thursday, 27th November 2008 06:24 GMT By Patrick Garratt


The IGN scores for Prince of Persia are in, with the Americans going for 9.3 and their British counterparts posting a 9.4 score.

Ubi boss said in an earnings call last night that expectations for the game were high internally.

It’s out on Xbox 360 and PS3 on December 5.

    I’m afraid that if it’s a 9er I may have to get it. Which means I’ll be selling one of my legs. Who needs a left leg?

    For the sake of balance, this is taken from the Meanwhile… section of this month’s NGamer.

    Talking of sucking, Ubisoft delivered the quite upsettingly bad Prince of Persia this month. December’s only major release is a beautiful but soulless affair, totally devoid of the brilliant platforming and epic feel of its predecessors. As a ledge-leaper it’s fiddly and inadequate. As a combat game, it’s wafer thin. As one of the year’s most anticipated titles, it can only rank as a disappointment akin to Macca’s ‘classic’ [the previously mentioned Wonderful Christmastime] being followed by Chris Rea’s Driving Home For Christmas while you’re in the queue at Asda.

    Are you talking about the game or SticKboy?

    NGamer’s a Nintendo mag isn’t it? And there isn’t a Wii version of PoP. Although there is a DS version… which will probably suck. Because it’s a DS game. And DS games suck.

    I won’t let some poxy Nintendo mag deprive me of dreamy French buggery.

    That Asda metaphor makes no sense to me.

    The Meanwhile… section takes a look at the best and worst of the releases on the other consoles each month. It’s usually written by someone on one of the other mags as far as I’m aware, and is always very honest about great games on other consoles. So yeah, it’s talking about the 360/PS3 game.

    Also, DS games don’t suck. Some do, but it’s had another good year, particularly if you’re not import-averse.

    That Asda metaphor makes no sense to me.

    It’s pretty simple to follow – it’s just saying PoP’s as big a disappointment as having to listen to those two awful Christmas songs whilst queueing for your festive turkey.

    Ah. I thought he was saying one was good compared to the other, hence the disappointment. Couldn’t figure out which one was supposed to be the good one.
