  • Abstract:  February 24, 2010 - Ubisoft's 2008 Prince of Persia was both a great game and a fitting homage to the franchise. However, the visual redesign and the lack of challenge turned some fans off. Accustomed to the poetic looks and engaging storyline of the Sand...

  • Abstract:  The 2008 release of Prince of Persia took the franchise in an invigorating new direction, employing open-world design and a painterly artistic style to great effect. It breathed life into a series that had been treading water for years, but you won't s...

  • The Forgotten Sands is, as noted, an absolutely unnecessary addition to the franchise in the literal sense, as it contributes almost nothing to the story vault of the series. The migration to HD was also a choice the reason for which can be hard to com...

  • Abstract:  Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a return to the old style platforming seen in Sands of Time. Using a tried and tested combination of combat, platforming, and the odd puzzle it does do a pretty good job bringing players back. Sword combat is en...

  Published: 2010-06-12, review by: 1up.com

  • Abstract:  Prince of Persia's had somewhat of an identity problem this past decade. If you count Prince of Persia 3D, The Sands of Time, and 2008's Prince of Persia, The Forgotten Sands marks the fourth time Jordan Mechner's classic puzzle-platformer has been rei...

  • Abstract:  The new Prince of Persia is a 3D platformer on autopilot mode. You run, jump, and swing around a castle, occassionally stopping to kill sand skeletons, all while trying to get some place (usually to where ever your brother is) without any particular ur...

  • Forgotten Sands is much better than the 2008 Prince of Persia, but still not as great as Sands of Time – the game it so obviously seeks to recapture the spirit of. The story and visuals are unimpressive, but the combat and platforming are good enough t...

  Published: 2010-05-19, review by: evergeek.com

  • Abstract:  As the umpteenth outing for the looooong-running Prince of Persia franchise, it's hard not to describe the newest chapter, The Forgotten Sands, as anything but "predictable," which seems like something Simon Cowell might say were he a game critic inste...

  Published: 2010-07-02, review by: gadgetguy.com.au

  • Abstract:  The new Prince of Persia game is a return to the core gameplay of Sands of the Time, which is most certainly a very good thing; although there's not much in the way of innovation to freshen the offering. In your quest to save the kingdom or whatev...
