Hey guys

As I am trying to study for my Organic Chemistry II Final... I just got this crazy idea that this might be a spiritual successor to orginal Prince of Persia Series.

How you may all ask?

Well most of the old Prince of Persia Fans wanted a realistic Prince of Persia game. Well that's not going to happen on how I see it. Prince of Persia will be Ubisoft's Action and Adventure game that has over the top platforming and action.

Now with Assassins Franchise this will become their Action and Adventure game with realism. That will please old Prince of Persia fans, while bringing in Splinter Cell Fans and new fans in one whole sweep. So through this game will gain huge sales and become one of the best games of 2007.

Just some speculations....

Arg I can't wait until E3

And I think you may be on to something Zap, hopefully PoP will go towards a fantasy theme, since it has been like that since the original PoP's.

And this game will hopefully revolutionize the realistic platforming and action genre http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Actually, that makes a lot of sense Zappy. Plus, this is the kind of game I've really wanted... Another Thief, set in PoP surroundings.

Awwwesoooome. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It looks pretty damn good. I'm not gonna hesitate in getting it.

HOWEVER, I don't ever want to think of it as having anything to do with Prince of Persia. To me, this is its own game. It will never be Splinter Cell meets Prince of Persia...it's just completely Assassin's Creed.
Similar to them, yeah...cuz it's done in the same style.
This just isn't a game I want to see as being created in another's shadow.

Although the main character does seem to have the same facial structure as the Prince for SoT...

I agree, it's something new and unique in itself.. Hi there. I'm from http://www.ttlg.com/ forums.. and I have to say "Not really"! check this: http://www.thief-thecircle.com/

I don't know if anyone knows Thief, but Assassin's Creed seems significantly similar to it. Nonethelees they will probably be two entirely different games; for starters, Thief has a (subtle) fantasy setting, Assassins looks pseudo-reality.

I've played Theif myself, and while AC is similar, it differs quite a lot as well. The setting is completely changed, the actual gameplay has not been seen yet, but I do remember that in Theif you were encouraged not to kill but to sneak, whereas an assasin is trained to kill. But they are similar, and that's good in a way as it'll draw in more gamers.

This game reminds me of TTT in its earliest premier days, when the dark prince was that white haired maniac, and things where overall darker. It seems like this game will be what I thougt TTT (or KB as we called it back then) was going to be like.

I've had this theory for a while, especially because the people who are making this is the same group who made PoP. They switched away from making PoP after the last game and made this.

I remember reading somewhere that Ubisoft wanted to make a Prince of Persia 4 but ended up designing a whole new character and setting, yet they wanted to keep it somehow linked to POP.

Maybe AC is it...
