On the new Prince of Persia game

Prince of Persia - Yay!
I've been waiting for years to
play the new sequel.

But wait - what's this crap?!?
Everything looks cartoony.
And bad voice acting.

Where are the bad guys?
The whole game is deserted.
Just one boss per world.

One or two puzzles
here and there, but not like in
the previous games.

Collecting "light seeds"
feels like Mario Galaxy.
Star bits, anyone?

There's still wall running,
but crawling on the ceiling?!?
That might be a stretch.

The male lead is not
even a prince! The writers
missed the game's title.

I could go on and on like this, but I won't. Basically, the new Prince of Persia game is a complete departure from the franchise. The story line is garbage, all the best gameplay elements (fighting, puzzle solving) have been removed, and the new art style makes it look like a Japanese RPG or superhero game. Very disappointed. :(
