I haven't played this game, and want to. That doesn't mean i'm going to be fooled by ubisoft into paying full price for a 2 year old game i can get on the Cube for about a fiver.

It's all well and good porting games, but i think they should have at least done something with the graphics, maybe given the Wii version a new level or area or something.

Why give it a different name? It's the same game just with Wii controls! When will 3rd party publishers realise we want new games with graphics better than the original XBox and using the unique features of the Wii to draw us into the game. The only decent 3rd party game so far has been Red Steel.

:( Oh dear, what is this? Waggling and shaking is as much as the game offers for motion control?

Crap!

Yeah, I love the Prince of Persia games, and liked The Twin Thrones.

But it's old.

A few new levels would have been nice; a whole new PoP game - even with the same graphics engine - would have been better. Much better.

Definitely not worth paying full price for what sound like fairly feeble tacked on Wii controls... if you can get hold of it just get the Gamecube version - a lot cheaper for basically the same experience.

As for the name-change - I'm sure film producers have done the same thing in the past... but it's bad and lazy and they need a good kicking for thinking they can get away with it.
