Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time review (PlayStation 2)

Reviewed March 02, 2005

Suskie says: "If you’re big on shooters (or really, any game that relies on constant, intense action to keep the player, um, playing), you’ll probably be familiar with the common scenario I’m about to unravel. Say you’re playing a game that really gives you an adrenaline rush. It’s got lots of guns, blood, explosions, all that good stuff.
