    That's a UPlay unlockable bonus outfit, it's interesting but I prefer Malik's outfit or what his name was instead, I'm not much for the default leather outfit.
    (TexMod retexturing it to be more unique would be fun but can't be done as the launcher interferes from starting the game exe directly.)

    (Plus the other ones in the screenshot thread makes 29 in total plus the settings menu seen above and covers most of the intro and initial game areas up to the actual palace plus various menu screens, mostly from cutscenes and no text shown as to avoid spoilers where possible regarding story.)

    I'm curious about the game but not curious enough to splash out £27.99+ for what is supposed to be a merely decent game as opposed to brilliant one. It's also very short and lacks replayability according to some reviews I've read so I'll wait until it's £17.99 or less at Play.com before considering buying it. At the moment it's definitely overpriced here in the UK where the average PC game sells online for £17.99 to £24.99 (and £29.99/£34.99 on Steam!!!).

    Much appreciated, Stone Gargoyle, but I still refuse to pay more than £18 for the game! :p

    Had it not been a revision of PoP I'd long been waiting for I very much doubt I would have paid the £25 price tag either. But after playing the opening hour I'm now extremely glad I took the plunge. If this were a movie tie in it would possibly be the best movie tie in game ever. PoP vets will feel right at home with this game, and quite rightly you will progress through the opening levels fairly quickly. What does slow things down a bit are the extra enemy numbers and although they are definitely not as difficult to beat as I'd prefer you can have lots of fun disposing of each individual in a variety of ways. Including the old I'm gonna kick you back until you fall off a high ledge routine. And the moves you can pull off as you fight are very cool indeed.

    One word sprung to mind as I reached the first big cut sequence and that was simply EPIC. It pretty much is the next gen PoP game that we all hoped for after Two Thrones, and it mixes up elements from all three previous outings (excluding PoP 2008) with visual flair and a certain elegance. The prince himself looks astounding and moves in an amazing fashion with animations that are just as good as if not better in parts than Assassins Creed. Couple this with fighting steadily mounting enemy numbers and it really is a treat in motion.

    Level design is also good from the very early stages and I can imagine it getting to exceptional levels later on.

    Everything Ubisoft attempted in 2008 is now history, and although it can feel rather too familiar it's that same familiarity that is making me love it so much. It's precisely what I wanted from a re-imagining of the traditional PoP magic sauce that I missed so far.

    The Prince is most certainly back. In my very humble opinion that is. ;)
