    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.

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.This is one of my favorite video games.

    AWESOME! Spectacular! I had so much fun playing this game! I liked it better then the 2008 game because it wasn't so easy and really challenged me. It really went back to the beauty of the first game but in a totally original way. I really enjoyed the voice acting especially the Prince. Razia was beautifully done as well. There were times I didn't think Id be able to make it (lol the waterAWESOME! Spectacular! I had so much fun playing this game!

There were times I didn't think Id be able to make it (lol the water running) but I did and I was so glad it wasn't possible to cheat. The story is superb and beautifully written the ending was bitter sweet :(

    Thank you for making this game. Please continue with this series it is special.

    The Forgotten Sands is a game that has a lot of great ideas put in to motion. Most of these ideas have to do with the platforming aspect of the game, but there are some cool power ups and upgrades for the combat. Some of these ideas are freezing water so you can climb it, wearing stone armor so that no attacks hurt you, and rewinding time to save yourself from falling to your doom (or toThe Forgotten Sands is a game that has a lot of great ideas put in to motion.

Some of these ideas are freezing water so you can climb it, wearing stone armor so that no attacks hurt you, and rewinding time to save yourself from falling to your doom (or to save yourself from an enemies attack in combat.) The platforming is normally amazing, and very smooth. The combat is the best in the series's history. instead of fight 3 or 4 people (like in sands of time) you fight 30 or 40. The combat is faster paced and much more fun. Unfortunately the combat is never a real challenge. This game has excellent graphics except for the character models which have odd looking faces. The sound in the game is great. The main problem with the game is the lack of a story. 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.
