It’s about time for Ubisoft to consider making a reboot for the successful Prince Of Persia series. Prince Of Persia is one of Ubisoft‘s best games. The last game in the series was Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands which was released in 2010, so it’s too late for another sequel now. We need a reboot. But we also need new things in this reboot.
First of all, we need it to be an open world game. I’m not saying totally open world like Assassin’s Creed but more like Thief, when you’re not in a mission you can free roam but when you’re in a mission you follow a certain path. The settings of the Prince of Perisa games were beautiful and deserved to be explored freely.
Another thing we need is a new prince. We love the old prince but if it’s a reboot then it should have some major changes. It can be a change in the appearance only like Dante in DmC. He was still Dante but he had a (slightly) different look and wore different clothes (also slightly different).
I, personally, preferred the personality of the prince in Prince Of Persia: Ghost Of The Past, so i would love to see this personality used in the new prince.
The last thing we need is not something in the gameplay its something in the Prince Of Persia games that are yet to come. We want it to be an annual game just like Assassin’s Creed and the Prince Of Persia Trilogy.
Prince Of Persia is a game that should stay forever. We loved it so much, we still love it and we will love it forever!
Let me know if you agree with me or not in the comments. Also if there’s something you’d like to see in a Prince Of Persia reboot, just say it in a comment
Game movies are usually rated (by the game fans) according to two things:
1- How much different the plot is.
That’s how it always was and always will be. For example, Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time movie wasn’t admired by Prince Of Persia fans because of Jake Gyllenhaal (who was totally different from the Prince) and the different plot. Everyone was like “Why call it The Sands Of Time if you’re not going to use the game’s plot”. Not to mention that what Dastan (a.k.a. the Prince) was wearing in the movie was from Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within game. At the end, we got a good movie but a terrible game movie. If you watch it as if it was just a movie you’d like it, but if you watch it as a movie based on Prince Of Persia you’d hate it!
One of the greatest games out there (I didn’t play it but watching the gameplay was enough) is getting its movie soon, this game is The Last Of Us. The Last Of Us has a great plot, great characters and an amazing environment, so the movie should be great, but is the plot going to be the same? YES! Neil Druckmann said that the movie is a game adaptation, in other words, it will be a re-telling to the story of the game. So The Last Of Us passed the plot stage!
Now what remains is the casting, which shouldn’t be difficult because Joel and Ellie from The Last Of Us are very “clear” characters with crystal clear features and ages. If I had the chance to pick the actors, I would pick either Hugh Jackman or Gerard Butler for the role of Joel, as for the role of Ellie, it has to be Ellen Page and nobody else. Although she’s a bit old for the role but her height and features say otherwise. She’s the one for that role!
The Last Of Us will make a great game movie. I expect it to be the highest grossing game movie of all time!
