According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Nudity
Parents should be aware that this game features graphic violence such as decapitations or splitting people completely in half. Most of the enemies dissolve into magical sand, but the fact remains that they have human or humanoid form. It may not be bloody exactly, but it's graphic. Besides the level of violence, there is not much to be cautious of. The back of the box mentions nudity, but I was completely unable to find any examples throughout the entire length of the game. If there's any nudity in here, I could not find it.
Action fans will find an extremely solid adventure that encapsulates the best parts of the series.
People new to these games may be a little lost when it comes to the story, so it may be advisable to start with the original disc first.
Prince of Persia fans will be glad to know that this game is a return to the graphic style and forward-moving structure of Sands of Time. It's a solid, fast-paced adventure and avoids most of the things that fans didn't like. It's worth noting that the game has fewer puzzles (a little disappointing) but also ditches the cheese-rock and S&M flavor that a lot of people found repellent.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers are out of luck. There are no subtitles to be found anywhere in the game, which was a major disappointment to me.
