  • Summary: The Forgotten Sands is a slick, edge-of-your seat adventure. It’s not as mesmerizing as the Prince’s previous engagements, but it brims with the same excellent acrobatic action. As the Prince scurries along walls and leaps from pillar to pillar, Ubisoft throws the player a curveball in the form of water-based platforming segments that warp the mind in the same way as the “pat your head while rubbing your stomach” challenge.

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Review

VideoGamer.com

  • Excerpt: People, apart from a small bunch including myself, generally didn't think much of 2008's Prince of Persia, so it's no surprise that Ubisoft went back to the formula that had proved successful in the past. The Forgotten Sands is very much in the same vein as the much loved Sands of Time and PS2/Xbox swansong Two Thrones. Even with fancy new HD visuals, though, can it live up to the memory of one of the great games of our time?

  • Excerpt: The last time out the Prince of Persia series went through a series 'reboot', introducing a new animated look for the game and 'can't fail' gameplay that essentially gave you infinite chances to get past the game's obstacles. With Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands the series has returned to business as usual, perhaps in an effort to more closely resemble the Disney movie that its release has been timed to coincide with.

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
15 July 2010
  • Excerpt: After the questionable design decisions of the last Prince of Persia comes a game which is supposedly much closer to the Sands of Time trilogy, as is suggested by the game’s name, and the protagonist who is actually a Persian prince, rather than a tanned American merchant. Forgotten Sands combines the two types of PoP to make a very enjoyable experience, the flaws of which are probably more down to a rushed release to coincide with the Sands of Time movie than anything...

Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Review

  • Summary: " Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands " is an odd choice from Ubisoft. They have seemingly abandoned the previous remake, to go back to a less characterful prince, who looks a bit odd. Whilst there are some great set pieces, and the core platforming is still cool, the game has some serious issues.

  • Excerpt: was clearly designed for mainstream consumption. But somewhere along the development process, the line between simplicity and stupidity began to blur.

Review: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (PS3)

Games Are Evil
17 June 2010
  • Excerpt: As any guy (or mother behind him) will tell you, first impressions are everything. When I popped in this latest PoP iteration, I was not initially impressed. This is not a good way to kick off my experience with the Prince. However, now that I’ve finished the game, I feel quite different about the entire experience. Let me explain. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is the latest chapter in one of Ubisoft’s most well-known franchises.
  • Pros: Nice “old school” feel of the PoP series, tests your timing skills
  • Cons: Bad first impressions, button mashy combat, the Prince’s bland face

  • Summary: Did the untold story from the Sands of Time trilogy need to be told?
  • Pros: Platforming is very active and even more a challenge than ever; Character modeling looks wonderful; Wonderful voice acting
  • Cons: Combat not as fluid as previous Prince of Persia games; Graphics are not consistent
