GamesRadar

  • Pros: Combat is hugely improved, Traps and puzzles are a blast to run through, Interesting, endearing cast of characters
  • Cons: Too linear to allow much exploration, Boss fights are fun, but too simple, Ultimately too shallow to be a "real" Prince of Persia

Prince of Persia: The forgotten Sands Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
27 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Rather than being a continuation of 2008’s divisive Prince of Persia , Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is instead a side story featuring the prince introduced in The Sands of Time and having more in common with the more intricate earlier games. In a timeline sense, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is set between the end of the Sands of Time and the beginning of Warrior Within. It sees the Prince returning to his palace and finding it under attack.

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands – Review (Xbox 360)

Gametactics

  • Conclusion: The Forgotten Sands feels like a step backward in the series. Gameplay is uninventive and the combat system is weak. You’re better off sticking with a previous Prince of Persia or Assassin’s Creed.

  • Excerpt: After the Prince’s cel-shaded and ridiculously easy adventures in 2008’s Prince of Persia , Ubisoft have seemingly abandoned their new direction for the series, opting to revert back to the original Sands of Time trilogy with Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands . It may coincide with the release of Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney’s big-budget movie adaptation of The Sands of Time , but it has little to do with the movie (sorry, no sexy Jake); instead, filling in the gap...

  • Excerpt: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is one of the best games of the last couple of console generations. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands feels a little bit like a licensed game, made to make a little extra money off of a big summer movie, with the added quirk that it was a video game license already.

  • Excerpt: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands feels a little bit like a licensed game, made to make a little extra money off of a big summer movie, with the added quirk that it was a video game license already. The soundtrack's generic, the graphics aren't a big step up from the last generation, the new features are very basic cookie-cutter stuff, and the entire thing is basically a retread of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time .
