More Spike TV crap? I can only handle one game related story about them a year.

And man is PoP: Warrior Within the biggest sellout title ever or what. They change the game so it has a more dark edge, make it more based on fighting than puzzles, have freakin' Godsmack music, and they're always marketing it in "cool" ways like this. They're ignoring those who loved the first game in favour of a more mainstream audience and I think it's going to have disastrous results both critically and financially. The mainstream will ignore it in favour of the other higher profile releases coming out around the same time and the fans of the first game won't care for the change in focus.

PSM gave it a 10....so hopefully its pedigree outweighs its creators "creative" efforts to help it stand out this holiday season. Personally, if I were Ubi, I would hold back and drop it early spring.....they are just trying to make sure that POP2 doesn't become another "Beyond Good and Evil".

Once Bitten + Twice Shy = Overkill

I think releasing it in March would sell as many extra copies as the forced image.

well I played POP2 on xbox on a demo disk.. and i think its crap. its nothing like the 1st one. now they added like a hundred meele weapon combos like aaby or aaab or aba or something like that. all confusing as hell. they also added combos to jump off wals and attack while running on walls. I think these are good.. but take away all those in combat combos. also.. i did not like the HUD as much as in pop1.

and there was just something about the game that didnt make it feel like the first. I will not be buying it.

I hated the first one...This doesn't fair well for the Prince in my eyes...

"its nothing like the 1st one."

Sigh... now I might actually have to buy this.

See, this is why I changed my sig.

By the first do you mean the 1st Prince of Persia this generation

Well, it's obviously not like Prince of Persia, either.
