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.
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

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...
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: Depending on whether or not you were one of the Prince of Persia gamers that absolutely adored the 2008 revamp of the series, the latest release of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (FS) is either going to be a big step forward or a big step back. There are, however, several side factors that play into this newest PoP release, the largest being the big movie blockbuster that shares the franchise.
