Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

Other than being somewhat repetitive, it's a mildly fun game. It actually makes you think; how do I do this or how do I get there. You have to use your surroundings in a parkour-like manner to navigate from level to level and room to room, which is very fun, and my kids enjoy watching dad run along the walls and such. It's great to hear 'you did it dad!' when you make that impossible wall run-leap-run up-leap-swing-swing-grab and climb when from a normal perspective it seems impossible. Overall, it's a fun game, and I would probably buy it, but not at full price.

I am a casual gamer who just got back into playing video games after a 5 year absence. It is difficult for me to get into games these days because they seem excessively complicated but not this game. I loved the original Prince of Persia so I took to this one right away. For the casual gamer, it was easy enough for me to get into, but this game sets you up. Starting you off nice and easy then BAM they hit you with challenges that will at times make you want to go into the fetal position, but by then you are hooked and you have to finish. I enjoyed the challenge of knowing when to use the right technique or when to move fast or to be cautious. This was not easy. On many occasions I ended up hitting the wrong button. All in All, I finished the game in 3 days. A challenging but fun 3 days but this is definitely a renter and not a keeper. As much fun as the levels were, I don’t want to go through them a second time.

This Prince of Persia is a prequel-like of the series -- Bringing the sands of time back into the title, the gameplay and storyline resemble older Prince of Persia title - Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within...

The game is a step back from the other Prince of Persia release. You go to point A to point B(just like the Playstation 2 versions); there is no roaming selecting which area to go to first.

If you are new to the game -- This title is a lot like Assassins Creed. You run threw the world traversing. Climbing, running up walls. The game originally started out on the first Nintendo but not as difficult.

You play as the Prince of Persia... [Not the same story as the movie]
In this story the prince is off to his brother's Palace. Without a warm welcome he found the palace is under siege and what begins as a ordinary visit, becomes aiding the falling Palace.

Ubisoft, why did you re-mesh up a older title?! This game is completely step back from some older titles of the game. The gameplay outline is very rhetorical and the story wasn't as interesting as the last Prince of Persia.
If you added more polygons to PoP: Warrior Within, a couple new control elements, and a few HDmi shaders... You have the Forgotten Sands.

The graphics are not New Gen at all.

I've been playing this game and every turn of the corner is predictable... This is very unlike the Prince of Persia series.

The fighting is pretty boring, there is no tactic... just hit square as fast as you can.

The game isn't captivating and continuing isn't as enthralling. I am forcing myself to continue playing. Storyline is pretty stale, aswell.

Throphies are easy to collect and once you get timing right you run threw the game easily.

You will probably find the game isn't nothing like the previous one, but if you played the versions on the GameCube or Playstation2. You will think it is an old game just re-made.
