Review in XBOX Magazine
The Prince of Persia is an enigma. He's never the same person, in the same time, living the same adventure. This graphic novel embodies this mystery with the dual storylines of Prince Guiv in 9th-century Persia and Prince Ferdos in 13th-century Persia. Authors Jordan Mechner and A.B. Sina took a purposeful retreat from the conventions of Western storytelling, introducing a Middle Eastern flair to an audience of loyal fans. Guiv and Ferdos have no enemies but the passage of time, and nothing to stand in their way but their own thoughts and actions. All other antagonists are minor annoyances as the two heroes search for enlightenment - a connection between their life and the rest of existence.
Fans hoping for the puzzle-solving action of the game will be surprised at the complex inner battles that take place in this beautifully drawn novel from illustrators LeUyen Pham and Alex Puvilland. While an initial reading may confuse as much as dazzle, the somber adventure across centuries may be the Prince's most epic journey yet.
