If you like a good platformer, look no further. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a great addition to the great PoP series, and goes back to the old gameplay of the Sands of Time. While the game is very enjoyable, it is very short. I beat the game in 6 or so hours, and on the normal difficulty I can't see it taking more than 8. The combat is rather bland in the game, but the puzzles and platforming make up for it-although they can get repetitive occasionally. Another fun thing about the game is that via the uPlay application you can unlock several new things like experience boost, a new game type, and even play through the game with Ezio's outfit from Assassin's Creed. Overall, the game was fun, but was a little too short.

The game is similiar to all the other prince of persia games, mainly the ones for the ps2. I was hoping for something similair to the next gen prince of persia with the fighting style. They tried this new fighting system and it just didn't seem to flow nicely. However all and all it has all the elements that I have grown to love in the prince of persia games.
