The 2D graphics, quite frankly, are stunning. The many characters you encounter are fluid and beautifully animated and brought back memories of the original Prince Of Persia game. The point and click puzzle solving system is very simple to use, although the puzzles themselves can be a bit tricky. There are flashes of Japanese weirdness throughout (some of the characters are somewhat eccentric to say the least), and it can get very talky at times.
