Mhm!! I really like it. Admin plays usually, though, since she has better hand-eye coordination ; - ;
An example of an interaction between Elika and the main character: 
Ahh, I love them...
If you have a minute and thirty seconds, which you might not, I don't know (;-;) you could watch the first boss fight here- 
There are four main attacks. The sword (which you see used most of the time), the gauntlet (4:32), the acrobatic (5:08), and Elika's attack (5:22). I'm just listing some times, there are probably others in which those were used... Especially Elika's magic ; u ; 
There are obviously times when each is better; the sword is medium range and can be combined into any combo, the gauntlet is better when you're very close (it's that thing on his hand), the acrobatic... doesn't do much other than get you into position, and Elika is amazing and a beautiful princess. Also, most of her attacks are punctuated by the main character saying something like 'Need your magic', which led to Admin saying "yeah, all I remember of this game is the dude saying 'Elika, now!' and nobody being able to beat the boss" when I asked if she wanted to play.
Oh, and there are 'special' attacks... I say special because it's just a special situation. If you're up against a wall or something, the game generates a button for you to press. If you hit it repeatedly, you win that little segment of the fight.
The whole game isn't fighting, though.
The story begins when the main character is in the desert, looking for his donkey (Farah) who is apparently carrying enough gold to enrich him for the rest of his life. Elika falls on top of him, which is mildly se.xist but oh well. As soon as he gets a look at her, she runs away, and he sees that she's being chased by multiple guards. Of course, him being the main character, he absolutely has to chase Elika as well, despite her telling him to go away. He beats up a couple of guards, at which point she begrudgingly allows him to accompany her to the temple she's trying to get to (while also being clear about the fact that her father is probably going to kill him if he's involved with her at all.) The main character ends up fighting her father, who cuts down the tree in the temple, which has been holding Ahriman (evil god of darkness) back for a long time. Elika basically gives the main character two options- fight the spreading Corruption of the land and trap Ahriman once more, or die on the way out of the desert.
Neither can live without the other's help. Elika cannot save the Fertile Grounds (areas that have been corrupted) without the main character's help, as she is too quickly weakened by healing them. The main character can't fight his way out or even really run away without her magic.
So most of the game is a combination of fighting, running around/using parkour to get places, healing the Fertile Grounds, and collecting Light Seeds to strengthen Elika's magic.
Due to Elika's powers, you cannot die in the game. This is the part I like! Whenever you are about to be killed by a monster, you just regen with both of you at full health, and if you fall off a cliff or something, Elika pulls you back up! 
I love her so much... ; u ; 
Anyway, Prince of Persia is a wonderful game and you should play it. I apologize for rambling, it's one of my special interests.

URBEX and Parkour are by far my favorite hobbies right now.

I like working out, playing music on the guitar and on the flute, singing, and dancing.
