This is some gameplay footage of the Dreamcast port of Prince of Persia 3D.

Some of you may not be aware the Sands of Time was indeed not the first 3D PoP game. This one was developed by different developers, and plays a lot like the original Tomb Raider series. It has similar controls, and play mechanics to the TR series. I guess that's OK because TR took the concepts from the original PoP series and translated them into 3D, so Prince of Persia in 2D begat Tomb Raider in 3D which begat Prince of Persia in 3D. Even the new PoP series owes a lot to TR for showing how 3D adventuring is done.

As you can see this footage is cut short (no pun intended) by a trap I should have ducked under instead of trying to jump over it. Like TR, death means you have to reload your last save which can make for a lot of retreading familiar territory.

This game was only released in the US on the DC, so Pal gamers never got it unless you imported it. The PC version of Prince of Persia 3D did, however get a Pal release.
