    The Forgotten Sands is more than just a return to form for a long-running franchise: it's also one of the most gratifying platforming epics to come along in ages.
  2. Slick, challenging gameplay with brilliant pace, marred only by the average combat. [July 2010, p.88]
  3. With an interesting story and unique villains and ancient lore, you will be hopelessly captivated from start to finish each and every time you play this game.
  4. With solid platforming and tricky puzzles it's a long-awaited return to form for the Prince. [Aug 2010, p.92]

In the early sections of the game it may seem like it offers nothing new to the series but stick with it. Once you start getting the elemental powers the game really picks up, and you'll have an absolute blast. My only real complaints are that the combat is a little bit too hack-and-slashy, and the main story mode is fairly short. Still, it's great to see the old Prince back instead of the idiot from the 2008 PoP, and it's really nice to see that his acrobatics are still as awesome as ever. Full Review »

A perfect Prince of Persia adventure for anyone who likes video games. The game has perfect combat and a plot that will keep you interested until the end. The game is mostly dependent of you solving puzzles, with challenges being hard, but not too hard. Don't judge it for having puzzles, this is a very exciting, fast paced game with lots of combat. You will love it. Full Review »
