[E3 2008] Prince of Persia Developer Walkthrough

Right now Mirror’s Edge and Prince of Persia are neck and neck as my top games of E3. But I don’t know, as I watch this two-part developer walkthrough of the new Prince of Persia I think it may just be pulling ahead of DICE’s incredible first-person parkour platformer. It’s hard to put into words how blown away I am by what Ubisoft is doing to reinvent the franchise. The new combat, AI buddy system, expanded acrobatics, flowing animations, and “illustrative” art style are all so impressive to watch come together. Do yourself a favor and watch the walkthrough, part one below, part two after the break.
