It's kind of hard for me to review this game because there are so many things I like about it, but a handful of things that make me shake my head and wonder what Ubisoft was thinking. In my opinion this is the third best Prince game out of the five that start with the Sands of Time game. The Sands of Time is still my favorite(I wish they would make a reboot of that one graphically) followed by The Warrior Within, then the last Prince of Persia on the PS3, lastly The Two Thrones. So, what to start with... the good or the bad... let's get the bad out of the way.

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.

I'm a big fan of the Prince of Persia series, so this game was highly anticipated for me. I bought it on street date and played for about six hours. The next day, I finished it in another 4 hours. Needless to say, I was a bit surprised that the game was so short. I played the two challenge arenas and beat them both in an hour. I repeated playing the "waves of enemies" level until I got my character leveled all the way up. I was curious if I could play through the game with all the abilities unlocked- no dice. You can only have one save game and there is no level select after you finish to try to get trophies that you missed. Basically there is no replay value.

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.

From the opening scenes these graphics look straight out of the movies. So far the prince has been trying to catch up w/ his brother in his fathers castle. It is the typical PoP type of stuff with lots of wall running and acrobatics. The swinging leaps from bar to bar look incredible and the controls are great.
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.
