The prince's high-flying adventure is marred by camera issues and weak combat, but the excellent platforming is still loads of...

The Forgotten Sands is, as noted, an absolutely unnecessary addition to the franchise in the literal sense, as it contributes almost nothing to the story vault of the series. The migration to HD was also a choice the reason for which can be hard to...

The new Prince of Persia game is a return to the core gameplay of Sands of the Time, which is most certainly a very good thing; although there's not much in the way of innovation to freshen the offering. In your quest to save the kingdom or...

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a return to the old style platforming seen in Sands of Time. Using a tried and tested combination of combat, platforming, and the odd puzzle it does do a pretty good job bringing players back. Sword combat is...

Prince of Persia's had somewhat of an identity problem this past decade. If you count Prince of Persia 3D, The Sands of Time, and 2008's Prince of Persia, The Forgotten Sands marks the fourth time Jordan Mechner's classic puzzle-platformer has been...

The new Prince of Persia is a 3D platformer on autopilot mode. You run, jump, and swing around a castle, occassionally stopping to kill sand skeletons, all while trying to get some place (usually to where ever your brother is) without any particular...

Forgotten Sands is much better than the 2008 Prince of Persia, but still not as great as Sands of Time – the game it so obviously seeks to recapture the spirit of. The story and visuals are unimpressive, but the combat and platforming are good enough...

By TechTree on 60

The original Prince of Persia games were a hit due to their exciting platforming sections and puzzle solving aspect. Although the Prince was often seen performing superhuman tasks that were beyond the capabilities of a mere mortal, such as running...

Forgotten Sands is a thoroughly enjoyable game that challenges both brain and...

A stellar return to form for one of the biggest names in action/adventure gaming, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands serves as the best series instalment since 2003’s The Sands of Time....

By Evergeek on 70

As the umpteenth outing for the looooong-running Prince of Persia franchise, it's hard not to describe the newest chapter, The Forgotten Sands, as anything but "predictable," which seems like something Simon Cowell might say were he a game critic...

International Review By Alt om DATA on 80

Nu er det op til vores prins at redde verden fra den forbandede hær af levende døde og dæmoniske væsner. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands er en kombination af sværdkamp, magi, klatring på mure og gådeløsning. Det er et spil, hvor der er fokus på...

International Review By megazine.se on 70

Vi börjar det här med ett stort erkännande. Jag älskade det första 3 Prince of Persia spelen. Riktigt mycket. Man skulle kunna säga att det var Sands of Time som fick mig att faktiskt börja spela TV-spel igen på allvar. Uppföljarna var inte dåliga...

Prince of Persia on taas tänä keväänä aktiivisesti näköpiirissä. Edellisestä pelistä ehti vierähtää vain reilu vuosi, kun teattereihin höökinyt leffa sai Ubisoftin taas tykittämään prinssiä pelikauppojen hyllyille.Peliin mahtuu kuitenkin yllätyksiä....

International Review By GamerLobby on 73

Prince of Persia: Die vergessen Zeit ist ein Spiel dass es verdient gespielt zu werden. Auch wenn es nicht unbedingt das beste Spiel ist, macht es viel Spaß sich durch den Palast zu bewegen. Ja ich gestehe, ich habe bisher keinen PoP-Teil gespielt,...

International Review By Daddeldepot on 79

Ich muss gestehen: Ich liebe Ubisoft. Ich liebe die Art wie sie ihr kreatives Potential bündeln und neue Wege gehen, um den Spielern eine unnachahmliche Erfahrung zu schenken. Ich kann mich auch mit dem neuen Kopierschutz anfreunden, welcher mich ein...

International Review By PCMweb on 80

Prince of Persia – The Forgotten Sands is een waardige Prince of Persia game die de fans van de originele Sands of Time trilogie zeker zullen waarderen. Desondanks blijft het wel een beetje een herhalingsoefening met weinig...

International Review By OnlineWelten on 78

Hangeln, klettern, springen, ausweichen und alles noch mal von vorne. Die alten Tugenden schimmern auch durch die vergessene Zeit, was aber leider kein Start meiner ultimativen Lubhudelei sein soll. Viel eher sind damit die Annehmlichkeiten damit...

Perserprinsen er tilbage i aktion, og også denne gang er det sand, der skaber problemer. Vi har spillet efterfølgeren/forgængeren The Forgotten Sands, i trilogien der nu består af mindst fire dele.Det ser ud til at spilbranchen endelig har fanget, at...
