1.0 out of 5 stars Killer BUG kills the fun, May 22, 2010

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
After close to 11 hours of playing this game and being very close to the final battle, I ran into a bug that makes it impossible to continue the game. The game saves automatically and there seems to be no way to restart a specific chapter. The automatic checkpoint is not your last checkpoint, but puts you in a room with no exits. This is a room you passed by before, only both doors are now locked. I restarted, rebooted, but nothing changes this. The only option left is to restart the game and replay the 11 hours.

This is too bad, because the game itself is probably one of the better POP to come up lately. I don't mind replaying it sometime, but I do mind replaying it on these terms.

Even with this bug, I would have rated this higher than 1 star, but with Warrior Within having a similar issue, this is really sloppy work from the developer, especially for a $60 game.

How to avoid the bug: in the last chapter, there is a long section where you have to jump from one vulture to another, same as you did in the other chapters. At the end of this section, you have to make solid the block you need to land on. Try avoid falling and restarting in this area and will probably be ok once the game saves again.

I had this issue also. You have to go into the memory settings for the 360 and delete the autosave (not the "Backup" autosave). You still have to replay a lot of the game, but you'll still have all your upgrades.

I was going to suggest you do a few saves before going back to that 'buggy' area and hopefully you can load one of those saves and avoid replaying the whole game! Sounds brutal.

I rented this game last week hoping to finish it before return. This room you're talking about is exactly where I was trapped. I thought it was a bug and your review confirms this thanks.
