Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Review
3 August 2010
Excerpt: With Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands on Wii, Ubisoft managed to resist the temptation to port over the Xbox 360/PS3 game and develop the game uniquely for the Nintendo console instead. This isn't a cut down port of the game that's available on Xbox 360 and PS3, but a version made to make the most of the platform. With ideas all of its own and some impressive production values, this Wii exclusive might well be the best version of Forgotten Sands you can buy.
Action game features bloodless violence, parkour stunts.

Summary: Parents need to know that Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is an action game that involves frequent battles against humans and fantastical creatures, all clearly evil. The game’s protagonist uses his sword, fists, and magic to stylishly carve his way through as many as 50 enemies at once, though there is never any blood or gore.
Excerpt: A long time ago, in a console generation far far away, a prince took a platforming journey through the Middle East that captivated millions of people and secured fans for a lifetime. However, the prince started taking many more adventures and began to tire his fan base out. He took a break, came back as a cartoon, seemingly retired, then burst onto the next (current) gen platform with a vengeance via Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

Excerpt: The games industry was fast becoming a rather broken record for me, particularly with how the ports of big budget high definition titles always turned out on either the Nintendo DS or the Nintendo Wii.
Is Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Worth Remembering?
19 May 2010
Excerpt: 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 reinvented over the last ten years.
Pros: you long to play a more polished version of Sands of Time, you're a newcomer to the series
Excerpt: Cher may have sung about her desire to turn back time, but it was Ubisoft that made it a reality. Now they're using the ability to rewind and restart to skip past the minor speedbump that was the rather easy 2008 Prince of Persia and restore the series to its roots. Roots, in this case, being the evergreen Sands of Time, which landed on PS2 , Xbox and PC . Forgotten Sands is a sequel to that game, though you wouldn't know it.
Pros: A return to form for a classic series., Some fiendish level design., Exploration is a thrill.
Cons: Later sections require a lot of patience., Slim story and dull characters., Nothing to do with the movie.
