    AMAZING! game.. One of the Best games in the Prince of persia series.. Very underrated! I dont get how people hate it, if you actually finished the game you will know its one of the best adventure games this gen! I recommend it to everyone who like hack'n'Slash/adventure games

    Amazing game overall, it is what I call the proper sequel to the Sands of Time with the Prince in a new adventure. The gameplay remains similar to the Sands of Time with some new abilities and powers that make the experience fun too. The challenge modes are fun and the uPlay integration is great to purchase some stuff for the game. The story is the only downside, it exists through the whole game but it's quite forgettable. Overall this is a must-buy for any Prince of Persia fan and a great entry to the franchise. Expand

    This is one of my favorite video games. 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. Expand

    I am so glad I decided to play this game. I didn't hate the last Prince of Persia installment, I actually enjoyed it, but it didn't nearly live up to the original Sands of Time trilogy. I'm glad to say that Ubisoft returned to the Sands of Time story (I believe this game takes place between the first and second game), and the game is a blast. The graphics are nice, especially during cutscenes. The music is perfect, and the voice acting is top notch. The story isn't extravagant, but it isn't bad by any means. The combat is incredible, especially when you start gaining your different powers. It is fluid and really makes you feel awesome when you are taking down many enemies. The platforming starts pretty easy, but the further you go the platforming and puzzles becoming quite challenging. My only two real complaints with the game are it is short, roughly 6-8 hours. Plus, after you beat the game you unlock a challenge mode, but I finished it in 5 minutes and it doesn't change after the first time. It is the same waves over and over. Although the formula is similar to the Sands of time trilogy and it is quite short, that doesn't mean you should not try out this Prince of Persia. I guarantee you it is just as much fun as the Sands of Time. Collapse

  1. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands has a lot of great puzzle-elements, but when it comes down to the combat, the game fails.
  2. Forgotten Sands may not be one of the most stunning games released this year, but just like the previous Prince of Persia games, Forgotten Sands knocks it out of the park with some of the most satisfying platforming you’ll see this year.
  3. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a fun platform and action game, but nothing more than that. It's a decent HD-reincarnation of The Sands of Time.
