    Prince of Persia is the latest installment of the franchise and with a new make-over. All of the trick-jumps, climbing and platforming is there, but now you get to play cooperative with Princess Elika. Purge the corruption by slaying bosses of each realm and explore multiple routes to the next objective, all in comic-book style graphics.

    Conclusion:
    Prince of Persia ran great on my GeForce GTX 950. There were some short freezes when loading some content, but otherwise climbing and fighting was smooth. This game has some wonderful Borderlands-ish graphics and amazing animation. It is a lot of fun playing co-operative finding the way to the next area and then fighting off minions and bosses.
