Quite possibly the best-designed game of the last gen, PoP masters the platforming gameplay tropes of years past with the technical brilliance of modern 3D systems and the sheer fluid awesomeness of motion and movement at play—but basically, we just love fucking with the space-time continuum. Even Jake Gyllenhaal on HGH can't ruin this one.
