fine new Prince of
The new Prince of Persia Title
installation takes quite some time as it is a very big game and well detailed
too. At the end it will update your DirectX and then you will be asked to
restart your computer to finish the installation.
Then you will get the Main Menu with the following items:
New Game, Load Game, Options, Extras, Quit.
As you can see, there is no Save Game item yet. Later on you can load any Savegame with the Load Game tab.
The Main Menu
the Options tab: Display, Sound,
Combo List, Controls.
The Options Menu
select the Display tab. Allow Tutorials.
Click on Back on the lower left
corner to return to the previous menu.
The Display Menu
Click on yes (Tutorials)
would also be a good idea to read the Manual.
Extras there is a Skin Manager. You need the Pre-Order Code to use the Manager. Press
Yellow to get the screen for entering you 8 digits code on the back of your Game
Package. For now you only have Prince active.
The Skin Manager
Enter your 8 digits code
360 Gamepad for Windows
select the Controls tab.
You will find the Controls for the Mouse/Keyboard and for the only kind of Gamepad you can use for this Game: The Xbox 360 Cordless Controller for Windows. Yes, Microsoft manufactures this animal, exactly identical to the Xbox 360 Gamepad, but with a USB stick to a receiver for the Cordless Gamepad. This model version is made for the PC, not for the Xbox 360.
Fortunately I had that Gamepad bought especially for the Game BioShock, which could also only be controlled by this Xbox Gamepad.
If you’re going to use this Gamepad turn on the Vibrations.
The Controls Menu
is quite different from the Logitech Dual
Rumblepad which is a lookalike of the PlayStation
3 Gamepad. For those who are not used to this lookalike of the Xbox 360
controller here are some facts:
Left Analog Stick (LAS) and the D-Pad are interchanged, meaning LAS is
positioned at the top left and D-Pad under LAS, a bit to the right. The Right
Analog Stick (RAS) is at the same position of the PS3 Gamepad. LAS and RAS can
also be used as pushbuttons.
square of 4 main buttons is at the top right and has colors (anti-clockwise from
below): A (green), B (red), Y (yellow), X (Blue).
has a central button marked with a rounded “X”: push it in for a few seconds
and one of the quadrants will light up.
and right of the central button are two small white buttons called Back (left)
and Start (right). Button Back has an arrow pointing to the right (we’ll
indicate this by “/”) and button Start has one pointing to the left
lower front buttons are called LT (left) and RT (right).
upper front buttons are called LB (left) and RB (right).
It all looks very logical, doesn’t it? That’s Microsoft style. But that’s not all of it. When you open the Controls you can hardly read or see what buttons are meant.
You can hardly read anything here
Therefore I’ll provide this table:
|Move forward||LAS up|
|Move Backward||LAS down|
|Move left||LAS left|
|Move right||LAS right|
|Move sideward left||LB|
|Move sideward right||RB|
|Move Camera up||RAS up|
|Move Camera down||RAS down|
|Move Camera left||RAS left|
|Move Camera right||RAS right|
|Elika (Combo)||Y (yellow)|
|Use/Lift Attack||B (red)|
|Back (in Menus)||B (red)|
|Select (in Menus)||A (green)|
can have a look at the Combo Menu
too, but the Combos will become clear in due time.
a New Game
will be loading:
Into the Storm
short Intro will now start where two voices are speaking in mysterious riddles:
All you must do is ask.
The asking is yours.
You know what it is that I ask
If I would have your wish, then give me... mine.
a cinematic will show the Prince running in a stormy desert landscape.
The wind is free, but the sand goes where it is blown. Unaware of the world around it. Whirling on the breath of the Gods, at the mercy of the storm that engulfs it.
Narrator: What is one grain of sand in the desert? One grain amongst the storm?
we see the Prince tumbling all the way into a deep canyon. He stands up.
Meet the new Prince of Persia in full glory!
he shouts again: FARAH?!
Suddenly a girl jumps from a higher ledge on top of the Prince. But it isn’t Farah.
She wants the Prince to be quiet
we immediately see why. Three men with spears standing above near a tower were
chasing her. But the Prince and the mysterious girl have already hidden.
The girl was running from these three Guards
I told you she didn’t come this way.
The Guards leave and the girl runs away from the Prince who is pointing at her:
Hey! At least tell me your name...!
you are getting some control instructions. If you Pause here (\) you will see a
screen among which is a Save Game tab
that is not activated (yet).
Enjoy now, and go on starting LEVEL 1
