The definitive way to play?

Reviewed By: imabutt on 12 Jul 2022

A wholehearted recommendation. I never post reviews on this site, but I’ve been going through a bunch of versions of Prince of Persia the past couple of days, and I’ve settled on this being what appears to be the definitive way to play it (at least if you’re like me and have no nostalgia for the original). Playing old computer games can be a chore to get working well. That inclines me toward playing a console port. The SNES version is nice but it’s very different from the original design. The Turbografx version has an intro that’s pretty bad compared to the others and, while it seems in some ways to be more faithful to the original, this hack makes some drastic changes that I feel can only be considered improvements for any modern player. Playing with this hack and Retroarch’s latency reduction features makes for a very engaging experience for a game I was concerned I would never be able to appreciate.
