Very Good

Hello, When I entered this game in my Game-Q I thought I,d give it a try. I became impressed with it almost from the very start. This game was well designed, it rarely stays on one aspect long enough to get boring. It is not overly repetitive, Progresses with new angles of play as the game moves along etc.. There is more climbing in this, than Uncharted with Nathan Drake, I have not done this much climbing since I played Damnation, ( speaking of which I can not understand why Damnation got such pitiful ratings, to each his own I guess ). But all is not great with Prince of Persia either. I got to the end and gave up, because the designers went to far with climbing. Freezing the water falls, leeping from one to the other, having to do the phasing in and out matter or objects etc. etc.. By the last part of the game so many different buttons had to be worked in unison to get past something it had lessoned the fun of playing. But I would still give this game a thumbs up and I did enjoy playing it up to the end. As always thanks Game-Fly for being there to rent from and, See Ya! Billy in Samson.

Stay away at costs!

DO NOT BUY OR RENT THIS GAME! Particularly if you have fond memories of the PS2/first Xbox trilogy. This game is terrible.

The gameplay itself is horrible. All you literally do is jump about and fight the same 3 character types over and over and over. The character models would barely be acceptable for last generation.

The combat is atrocious; the Prince has like maybe four moves, tops. It's especially embarrassing when compared to the variety of moves he's had in past games.

It truly believe Ubisoft rushed this out to fulfill a contractual obligation. I spent $10 on this as a PSN download and regret every penny.

If you ever feel the desire to play The Forgotten Sands, you should either:

1) Rent or buy the HD version of the trilogy, or
2) Repeateldy beat your skull with your controller.

This game was a HUGE disappointment. Easily one of the worst games I've ever played. Stay away at costs!

Game with potential rushed and ruined at the end

Just as the title states, the scenes in the beginning seem engaging and curious, like this will be a good story game. Then you play and thoughout the game, the game play is fun, nice concepts. But towards the end of the game it seems like they didn't know how to end it or their funding was cut or something, but compared to how it started, it ended very rushed and poorly executed. I mean, the cinematography at the end wasn't even a movie! It was a series of pictures that explained what happened at the end. The end. Is the game horrible, no, but if you have other titles you consider playing, leave this one for last. I enjoyed the first 3 PoP games (Sands of Time, Warrior Within, and my favorite - The Two Thrones), but I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did the rest, if that helps you decide.
