Forgotten Sands is one of the best games in the Prince of Persia series, very underrated. The acrobatic platforming is amazing, mixing up powers like freezing water, making parts of the ruins reappear and rewinding time, some sequences are hard and may require flawless timing. Sadly, the story is not the best with some average combat but I do recommend this game.

The only Prince of Persia game I have played more than 5-7 times. I know it doesn't seem that way, but that's because I first owned it on XBOX 360 before selling it a long time ago and purchasing it on sale on here about a year later.

The Prince of Persia is back, and he's smoother than ever. With a new engine for the series, new visuals, new gameplay, you'll be hooked. I think besides having one of my favorite characters ever lead the way again, the other part that got me hooked was the upgrades and the upgrading system itself. I really like games that have this, even if it's minimal. I don't like being stuck with the same set of skills and powers for the entirety of a video game.

The Prince is sent to study alongside his brother, Malik, in order to become a great leader. On arrival, he notices his brother's kingdom under attack again, only this time it's much worse. He is forced to rely on a mythical army to stop the invaders of his kingdom. He releases the army, and not only are the invaders turned to sand, but so too are his soldiers. The only thing that's stopping The Prince & Malik from turning are the amulets they acquire from when Malik released the army. Find out more by playing this amazing game.

I really like the smoothness of everything, from the combat to the parkour we all know and love. The Prince is also able to upgrade powers he later acquire and uses, his health, energy, attack power, and more! If you're like me, and you want to stay protected during a fight, so you don't have to scavenge too much for health and energy, then upgrade the power that armors you.

I recommend playing this game with a controller. My logitech gamepad works great with this. I don't know about the xbox 360 wired controller.

The developers were able to combine SoT & WW into one fantastic game, and I couldn't have kinder words about it. I only wish there was some kind of epilogue DLC, where The Prince runs into something he has to deal with on the journey back home to his father. That would've made the game even more epic.

I look forward to more Prince of Persia games.

Overall: 10/10

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a disappointment. While it haves great graphics, interesting story and some great puzzles, It is terribly easy and it haves some bad issues and glitches. Even the game launcher is a failure, a letdown launcher, because of some terrible issues while launching.

I was a big fan of Sands of Time when it came out but never really bothered with the series except for trying out the reboot "Prince of Persia". This is the first one I have bought since SoT and I'm definitely glad I did.
I'll admit I was fairly sceptical about buying this game and it would never have come to my attention if it wasn't on offer but I own it now and I don't regret it. The game has an alright story, it's nothing special but the characters never acted unreasonable or stupid which I kind of expected.
The graphics aren't too bad considering it came out in 2010, definitely nothing special although the facial animations were pretty good, at least for the Prince anyway. The voice acting was also pretty decent, the characters were convincing except for the occasional interruption of a puzzle by the Prince inner monologuing about how to solve it.
The parkour was up to the usual PoP level and with a few very welcome additions. The abilities to freeze water and teleport makes for some really interesting gameplay and adds a time element to the levels. However even though I could never place my finger on why, the sense of scale and feeling of progress wasn't as strong as in SoT. I regularly lost track of why I was going the way I was and the heights weren't brought to my attention very much. Luckily this didn't really take much away from gameplay.
The combat conjured some very mixed feelings. It started out being very boring, just chopping at enemies and moving on. I was really dissapointed to see my favourite elements removed since SoT. No longer did I feel like I was taking down bulky enemies through agility and manuevering, now I was the bulky one and I could chop them down in a few swings. But as the game went on and I experimented more and more I found it was decently varied and not as bad as I first thought. But then something happened, I was given a powered-up sword and for the first five minutes I got a kick out of killing enemies in one hit. But then I realised any and all strategy it once had was gone.
The game started out as expected but entertained me throughout until the final boss, a clunky giant with lumbering swings and poor reactions, pretty standard and very boring but forgivable.

Overall I really liked this game, if you have never played Prince of Persia don't go for this one, start with sands of time. If you are a fan then buy this one, it's actually pretty good.
