A masterpiece by Raphael Lacoste
Doorway to enchantment

A tale about a Prince, a Princess, and the fate of the world, the 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' is based on '1001 Nights,' or 'Arabian Nights,' and is an enchanting game with breathtakingly beautiful graphics and a moving storyline.

The game's thoughtful and eclectic soundtrack of Arabian inspired music will stir delight in a wide range of gamers; rock fans will love the introduction and prison fight sequences, and the magic cavern's tranquil hymn will appeal to more than just soulful mystics. The game also features innovative gameplay, giving players the ability to 'rewind' their mistakes with the Dagger of Time and to defy gravity through several kinds of acrobatic moves, from running across vertical surfaces to scaling castles by performing a series of wall-to-wall jumps.

The Prince unintentionally unleashes the Sands of Time while in the palace at Azad. The Sands of Time ravage all that they touch, transforming humans into sand beasts and animals into sand creatures, leaving the stunning palace of the Sultan in ruins. With the Dagger of Time, the Prince gains some temporal control to aid him in his quest; among his time-manipulating capacities, he can 'rewind' his mistakes as well as slow time. The Prince teams up with Farah, an Indian Princess, to reverse the release of the Sands of Time from their hourglass, and to stop the treacherous Vizier from implementing his plan to unlock the ultimate power of the Dagger of Time.

Amidst a palace abounding with sand beasts, the Prince and Farah quickly find that they are all that is left of what was, and a relationship develops between them during their journey.

The voice acting is well-portrayed and realistic; character development is psychologically rich and deep; players will find it hard to believe that the Prince is merely a video game character. As the story nears its end, the protagonists go to great lengths to fulfil their goal; sacrifices are made and a bittersweet victory is attained.

After the Vizier's plan is foiled, the Prince and Farah say their good-byes, but the mystery of the Sands of Time is just beginning. The adventure continues in the sequel, the 'Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.'
