In our estimation, it's the last blockbuster title of 2008 that could really be a legitimate Game of the Year contender. Obviously, we don't expect it to top the likes of MGS4 or GTAIV, but we've been anticipating Prince of Persia ever since it was announced. Here's a look at the hero in question, and it's a great inside peek at how the team constructed this protagonist. He doesn't hold the same "kill 'em all then spit on their corpse" mentality of a Dante, but he's not the over-played "oh gee, I wish I didn't have to do this" anti-hero type. As they say in the video, he's "more cerebral," and this makes for a very compelling main character. If you want, take a look at the Elika Trailer after watching this one; she's the Prince's partner in this new entry.
