Summary: When I ordered this game I was under the impression it was like the X-box version--with a good story and actual combat. I have never been so wrong. It's basically a platform with no real battle system and its all a very boring game. I traded it for another game the day after I got it.
Summary: What I like about this game, it's great for non-advanced players. For people who like the old-school style playing without too many buttons to push and easy too control, yet still a challenge.
Some extraordinarily unfair criticism leveled at POP:FS

Summary: I know few people will care to read this review for an overlooked PSP game written long after its release, but I felt I had to correct a few things from the other reviews. For one, this is NOT the 3D Forgotten Sands game available on 360 and PS3. Aside from the freezing of water and other time manipulation effects, this game has very little to do with that one.
Summary: I am disapointed with this game, after play the other games of prince of persia this ona is bad, a 2 D game, you can only go foward or back, up and down, no 3d game like the others, I recomend do not waste your money in this games.
Summary: I've played both Revelations and Rival Swords, so I am a little biased when it comes to Prince of Persia. This is easily the weakest of the lot. I've played a few levels of "Forgotten Sands", and I am pretty disappointed. This is a 2D side scroller, and a pretty weak one at that. The prince can only go forward and backward, up and down. There isn't much skill or timing to the jumps and climbing maneuvers.
Summary: This game is more about jumping and going through obstacles at the right time. This game is not really a fighting game. I'm almost half way of the game. IGN gave 6 out 10 as Passable. I like it. Some say the graphics are not that good, but not all 3D games are good neither. I enjoy this game more than Assassin Creed: Bloodiness for the PSP. Look at some trailers or gameplay on youtube before you decide to get this game.
