The greatest desert campaign since World War II explodes onto your AoK screens! Play as the mighty Persian Empire as you lead their armies, escort their kings and crush a rebellion. All of this and more when you play Pride Of Persia. Pick your path to glory, just mind the elephant dung.
Is this campaign supposed to be historical? Because as far as my knowledge goes the Persian Empire made little to nothing to do with any conquests on a global scale.

Its not only ahistorical it really doesn't seem to do much of anything. Wandering along a series of lengthy paths doesn't provide a whole lot of interest. Perhaps the later scenarios are more interesting but after the first few I just deleted the whole thing. Really not worth downloading.

Who cares anyway. I've got no taste for desert campaigns...I dodn't bother to download it. I heeded the advice of some guys. Really mad.

"Conquests on a globale Scale" is a confusing point of view.
Everyone says, the roman empire ruled the world ! But which "world" ? Just europe ! This isnt "the" world !
The same to persians. I recommend you to read the book of Prof. Josef Wiesehoefer "Ancient Persia", and you will know a lot about the three Persian dynasty before of the muslim invasion.
Their empire was from India to Egypt. Look at a map, isn't that a big conquest on a globale scale?
Another example: The roman empire and later on the byzantine empire could never defeat the persian empire. Both of sides had a lot of victories and defeats, but no side could conquer the other side complete.
If you like to know more about the persian army and way of fighting (3rd dynasty), look at http://www.throneworld.com/oathofempire/en/sassanids.htm
