I was really hoping for a sequel to the new PoP released recently. The SoT trilogy should stop. It ended nicely as possible IMO, and shouldn't have a 4th installment due to trying to cash in on the movie $$$.
Really ? I thought it blew... The anime-ish style, the fact that you can't turn back time... That was the best feature of the Prince of Persia trilogy and it was what made it famous.
So.. um... what happened to the PoP? I hope it didn't get thrown out. Sure, it wasn't challenging but I thought they would change that in the sequel to attract more players.
