Summary: This was a great game and lots of fun. I rated it 5 stars for fun and entertaining. I only rated it 3 stars overall because in the middle of the game, there's some kind of fluke whereas the character has a mind of his own and starts sword fighting for no reason at all. The only way to control it is to take the battery out and then put the battery back in. I do not have problems with this in other games on the Wii.
Summary: Graphics are the main issue with game in Wii, trying to be too realistic makes them look chunky. The constant sound of the Wii reading the CD is also annoying, but bearable. Gameplay is good... at the beginning at least, but to activate any of the "powers" you are given, you have to shake the Wii controls endlessly, and finally they really become repetitive and boring. :( The story is long enough to keep you playing for days, that's a good thing.
Prince of Persia standards slipping away like sands
10 June 2010
Summary: This review is for Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (Wii Version) If you've played any of the other Prince of Persia games, you might be dissapointed. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time - had an awe inspiring storyline, and a rewind time feature, that easily made up for it's average fighting. Prince of Persia: Warrior Within - Improved upon the fighting 10 fold, kept the rewind time, and lessend it's storyline from perfect to excellent.
Excerpt: Without the punch and power of its HD brethren, many games ported onto the Wii from the Xbox and Playstation undergo changes - and this is certainly the case here. That said, this is no quick cut-and-shut job. Far from it, Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands for the Wii is an entirely different game to the versions on the other consoles, with its own unique storyline, setting and characters, all tailored to the specific quirks and demands of the hardware.
Pros: Cleverly tailored for the Wii, plenty of hours' play in the game .
Summary: This game looks great. Beautiful textures and design. It plays fast too, I could see no slowdown at any time. The puzzles are good and the usual P.o.P. exploring and acrobatics are as good as they get. The new "sand" powers are good fun and a breeze to use, they definitely add to the gameplay. The game is quite big with some nice extras, so it has some excellent things going for it. The downside; well the first is not so much a downside as neutral. That is the combat.
Summary: really fun game but its so different from the ps3 version and I cant get all the consoles out there just to get another version of this game i wish the designers wouldn't make different formats of the same game so different but i have no complaints other than that
Excerpt: Having being spoiled by the majesty of the Sands of Time, this game had a lot to live up to. It's not a bad game but it's not particulary good either. Combat is terrible with some truly bizarre mapping for the action commands. The puzzle platforming element is better and occasionally hints at the level of quality in the earlier games. For people unfamiliar with the mechanics there is a helpful guiding blue light to show the available options for movement.
Conclusion: Good game, great graphics for the wii. However if you are a prince of persia fan like I am, this game does not compare to the other original three; sands of time, worrior within and two thrones. I was also very disapointed with the ending as the storyline throughout was very vague and then was not resolved at the end. Other than that i would recomend it.
