    I've read this game suffers from the Ubisoft sickness (repetitive like Far Cry 2 and Assasins Creed). Is there any truth to it?

    Because I like the looks of it and may even buy it.

    This thread is hurting me, I will never click on it again.

    I will weep in silence.

    yeh its repetitive - it basically:

    1)run through dark area fight boss
    2) make world happy
    3) collect as many lights as you can in that area
    4) return to hub
    5) go to another dark world, fight boss
    6)collect lights
    7) return to hub
    8) ocassionally get a power up to jump on bouncing circles and do some crap flying.

    i miss the old POP, i want time reversal back - the fact that you cant die is lame theres no scope for experimenting either, as long as you can press 4 buttons in certain orders this game is a breeze - its basically see ring press B, see pillar press A, even the fights are pretty boring consisting of nothing more then press B (claw) press A (jump), press Y twice (spells), press X (sword) x repeat till boss is dead.

    its basically Guitar Hero in a different setting with a bit of wiggling of the direction button occassional (heck it even turns you around when you jump on a piller - lame)

    IGN got this spot on apart from the score(where they basically said it plays itself - which it does, and if you dont think that your obviously blind) , this games about an 7-8.

    anyone else notice as well that this game prevents you from jumping in a diagonal direction unless it wants you to! (case in point the garden leavel with the fountains) iv just completed TR underworld before playing this and i have to say that underworld is a much better game then this. at least underworld sticks to what it knows best instead of trying to be a pretentious affair with bugger all content or connection with the game world.

    I can't remember that I have been there yet. Sorry.

    Some light seeds seem impossible to get. For some you need a specific power.

    For an example, there were 5 of them that were on some impossible locations (like floating in the air) and after using the yellow power it collected those 5 automagically by flying to them.

    I spent a couple hours playing it last night and I think it's really a good game. very fun to play and quite addictive. and.. the graphics! OH MAN, gotta love the sweet graphics! I've played and finished Sands of Time and Two Thrones, and the gameplay in this one reminded me a little of Donkey Kong Country, I don't know why.

    Anyone who can buy this game, should do it. it's really worthed.

    I've just finished the game.

    The interactive end of the game is well done. Let's hope we don't have to wait long for part II.

    I loved the atmosphere in this game. The machinery was fantastic. Some of the scenery was beautiful. Lots of nice details. Good animations, although the gestures in-game often seemed a bit off. Good voice acting for the Prince and Elika. The graphics and the music were great.

    The story wasn't that great, but for a platform-kind-of-game it was packaged very well. The game content was very systematic (finish everything on your map and you're done). That doesn't leave many openings for a creative story along the way.

    During the fights I often had the impression I was fighting a random number generator and I sometimes killed the opponent by pure luck rather than skill.

    Still, I had a very good time playing the game and I am looking forward to the sequel.

    well can't make everyone happy i guess.. personally when i play games i like to have fun (xcept for games like deadspace whereas i like to have fun and heartattacks too!!) and with pop u would like to get100% fun rather being puzzled and getting headaches or struggling soo much that you would say that's enough for one day .... the light seeds part is kinda boring as you need more n more but overall this is the best game to date i have ever played and i am totally addicted to it ......... well done ubisoft ..

    Bought that game a couple of days after it got released.
    Have to say i really enjoyed the game, couldn't let it till i finished it.
    The battle could have been a tad better, but still it was fun. Its obvious that they were trying more for level exploration and they did it good i think.
    The only other PoP game i was arsed enough to finish was the sands of time which i think is a bit better than this one.
    Lets hope they won't mess up the second one in the second trilogy

    damn it, don't post spoilers! you've probably ruined the surprise for me! I can't say I'm happy with that.

    and for the record, that big *SPOILERS* warning you wrote, don't work at all if the surprise is right below it.

    Well, it was a great game..

    Still do you think things will be different in the end if I collected all the light seeds?

    I was bored after couldn't find a few light seeds and dropped collecting all of them still I had about 850 light seeds... Well, I didn't search much through city of light and the tower..

    The thing is if you could see light seed you could eventually find a way to get that light seed (of course if you have all 4 powers) but if you can't then it sucks..

    I would like to see beta costumes.. Bleh.. Whatever..
