Has anyone tried it? Is a good metroidvania? I've never played a Prince of Persia, not even when it peaked in popularity 20 years ago, but this one being a metroidvania gets my attention.

I played it on the Nintendo Switch (not finished yet, but not far from it). It's a pretty good Metroidvania in my opinion. The looks and feels kinda reminded me of Metroid Dread. I'd say it's not as great and complex as Hollow Knight, but pretty much on the same level as the Ori series (at least regarding the level-design/-structure and gameplay-wise). Hope that helps :D

Also: the last PoP I happened to like was Sands of Time on the GameCube - failed to have fun with pretty much every entry in the series since then, except for this one.

If I may venture to guess: there will be some sort of triple-a-male-cow-manure with this game.

I will keep to the real indies, thankyouverymuch.

If it's on the Ori spectrum, works for me. From your PS I understand that no background from other games is needed, right?

Denuvo doesn't stop games working with Proton.

Yep, it's surprisingly proton-friendly, and I can't imagine its performance impact (real or imagined) will have much effect on a game like PoP.

But personally, I don't buy Denuvo-encumbered games as a point of principle. I follow this curator on Steam, and that reminds me if any potential purchase features Denuvo and their anti-consumer bs. Really helpful.

This is another title that I'd have bought in a heartbeat if it wasn't for Denuvo. The character movement has a nice Dead Cells feel to it, and some of the fighting counters reminded me of Salt & Sanctuary, two amazing games. I had high hopes. But given that it's Ubisoft, I suppose I should have known better.
