Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this game features a major amount of violence, including decapitations and eviscerations; sometimes minions are cut in half. Slow motion lets players savor the kill as blood gushes. The game also features negative female stereotypes, including cat-like characters who moan about how good the pain feels even as they are being decapitated. The star rating given this game is based on quality of gameplay and is not an endorsement of the violence within the game.
Is It Any Good?
The tasks players must accomplish amount to little more than the pull of a lever or press of a button, and eventually, the time travel grows stale. The baddies are often quite dark and in some cases offensive. The formidable Dahaka is a large, black beast with glowing eyes, big horns and muscles, and tentacles. Cat-woman-like characters in leather hip boots moan and groan about how good the pain feels, even as players chop off their heads.
At first it's cool to go from a ruined castle to a brand new one, but after seeing the same rooms over and over the play becomes monotonous. On the plus side, the Prince's acrobatics are fun, and the environments are amazing and complex.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
