Graphics: Come on Ubisoft! This is 2010, not 2005! The graphics on Forgotten Sands should have been much better with the technology that is available today. Ubisoft is capable of making beautiful games. I'm not sure what happened here. It's not terrible, but it is below par for action/adventure games of this day and age. What this game needs graphically is a nice polish. It some levels it is graphically beautiful and in others it's kind dull and pitiful. It's not a huge disappoinment and it doesn't detract a whole lot from the game, but it is something that needs to be noted.
Story: It's pretty much the same kind of story that took place within The Sands of Time game. I loved the story in that game, but the problem here is it's been done before. Couldn't they come up with something a bit more original. Again, it's not a huge disappointment and it probably won't detract away from the fun you're going to have playing it, but it might was well not even have a story. I found myself not really paying much attention to it.
Gameplay: First, let me say the Prince, as in the other Prince games, moves with acrobatic grace. However, that doesn't help the combat system.Read more ›
The story is ho hum. His brother is slowly turning into an all-powerful monster and you know that's who'll you be fighting. The graphics look great sometimes, but more often they look like a polished ps2 game. The camera gets locked into bad positions that hinder you from solving puzzles and hurts you during combat. The combat is very repetitive and button-mashey. Did I mention the puzzles aren't very hard?
There are some positives. I will always enjoy running on walls and leaping all over the place as you do in the other games. Two new elements are added to the prince's powers that jazz-up the platforming in a very rewarding way. I also like that they got rid of the "balancing your character on ledges and beams" mechanic that has been tired since Tony Hawk.
If you're a fan of the series or just curious, do your wallet a favor and wait until this game is $30 or less. Otherwise you may be trading this back to Amazon like I will.
Swordplay and enemy fighting seems pretty basic with options to kick, stab or hold a button down for large attacks. The sound is incredible and save icon seems to appear often. I will update this as I go along in the game. So far - lots of fun, smooth controls, great graphics & sound with lots happening around you.
Lots of classic themes that you've come to love w/ the poP series - timed doorways, lethal traps, retractable spiked floors, problem/puzzle solving and finding hidden treasures to upgrade items at your choosing (health,rewind time,sword power and unlockables). The freezing of water is way cool and really makes you think about how to get through certain areas. There is also another Dharkara (sp?) type of creature following you around the outside at times. The only thing missing i've noticed is the slowing down of time option. The prince possibly could of used a few more detailed features on his charcter but the game surroundings make up for it I think. Your blue and red power up orbs seem to be at random so it makes gameplay a bit more interesting as far as recovery goes.
BTW - the version I have came with an exclusive Sandwraith skin and it looks like you may be able to unlock a skin of Enzio from Assassin's Creed later in the game. Has a UPlay option in the game where certain happenings get you certain points to use later on as upgrades.
