Things we want to see in a Prince Of Persia reboot.

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

Thief could have been much better.

Thief (sometimes referred to as Thief 4), which is a reboot of the Thief series, came out this year in February. I learned that fans were disappointed. I didn’t play any of the first three Thief games but I did play the reboot (the fourth) and it could have been much better than this.

First of all, the first-person mode wasn’t comfortable. I’m controlling a thief, I need to see his body, specially with the shadows thing. Controlling Garrett while seeing his body would have made it easier and better.

Another thing is; the freerunning. In Assassin’s Creed, you can climb almost every structure, but in Thief, Garrett the professional thief can’t climb almost every structure! Though, I do admire the swoop ability.

One of the most annoying things was the lack of weapons. This Blackjack isn’t enough. What kind of thief who steals forks doesn’t have a dagger at least. I know that you can finish the game without killing any guard but sometimes the best way to reach some destination requires killing one guard who will detect you and engage in combat. At this point, this Blackjack isn’t useful at all.

The last thing (I can think of now) is Garrett’s terrible voice acting. It’s very flat and lame.

The game is fun with a lot of amazing abilities. The stealth is great. The Focus ability is very helpful. The environment is great. But there are some things that could have made Thief meet the fans’ expectations and even impress them.

If you have the game, don’t give up on it and take good care of it because…What’s yours is mine!
