December 2, 2008 - Excellent - With all of these ingredients -- both new and familiar -- mixed together, Prince of Persia is undoubtedly one of the year's finest games.
November 26, 2008 - Excellent - It has its shortcomings, but I already sense that Prince of Persia will be one of the few games from this generation that I carry with me for the next decade.
December 2, 2008 - Good - Some issues here and there disrupt [Prince of Persia's] goal in surpassing The Sands of Time, but it's an incredibly enjoyable journey nonetheless.
January 15, 2009 - Good - Prince of Persia is an interactive extension of what good fiction tries to be, and while it's not for everyone, it can often leave you with a desire to come back for more.
December 2, 2008 - Good - While its lack of challenge may lull fans, its ease of use will delight newcomers and draw in anyone who appreciates a touch of magic.

December 3, 2008 - Good - The fact that Elika literally won't let you die could make things feel too easy and auto-piloted for some die-hard hardcore players. But we didn't mind, and would still recommend Prince of Persia to everyone - it's too good, too beautiful, and too charismatic to pass up.
December 10, 2008 - Good - [Prince of Persia] offers the specific gameplay features that fans of the series will be looking for, while establishing a sequel-ripe new world and story arc that are every bit as engaging as those of the previous trilogy.
December 5, 2008 - Mediocre - The platforming fluency is seductive, but it's a language of indifferent thumbing yawned through timing windows as wide as a house.
December 3, 2008 - Mediocre - Prince of Persia is a disappointment because the game has a lot going for it but all in disparate elements that don't feel fully fleshed out and don't blend together despite the amazing visual splendor that wraps it all up.
