Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

 

While the HD systems are receiving a new Prince of Persia title that fits into the narrative gap between last generation's The Sands of Time and The Warrior Within, the Wii version of The Forgotten Sands is a stand-alone story with its own unique...

more innovative platforming action; custom-made for the Wii; SNES Prince of Persia contained on the disc as a bonus

serious camera issues; monotonous combat; over-reliance on chaining magical abilities seems forced at times

This game comes from a strong pedigree. The original Prince of Persia game was trailblazing in terms of being the first game to use any form of motion capture, and Sands of Time had a rewind button way before Braid. The backbone of the game, the Anvil...

Did the untold story from the Sands of Time trilogy need to be told?

Ubisoft felt the need the re-open the Sands of Time storyline and this is mainly for the fans of that series. The core platforming mechanics are back and they are better than ever and provide an exceptional for the most vetted Prince of Persia...

A long time ago, in a console generation far far away, a prince took a platforming journey through the Middle East that captivated millions of people and secured fans for a lifetime. However, the prince started taking many more adventures and began to...

Only pick this game up if you are a die-hard fan of the franchise or are just wanting a very challenging platformer to add to your collection of “games that make me want to break my controller". The lack of multiplayer or co-op support really break...

It has become trendy for developers to release significantly different games on the Wii in comparison to what we see on the other two consoles. In some cases, the change pays off, and in others the final product is just a mess. Prince of Persia: The...

Nice visuals ; Excellent puzzles with great variety in difficulty ; A lot of additional content

Combat still the series' weakest aspect ; Camera often poses a problem ; Very slow-paced story

Once you get past the issues stemming from the camera and the typically bland combat system, this edition of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a worthy title for your Wii collection. If you haven't played the series in a while and are looking...

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Review

 

In many ways, the Prince of Persia series is the quintessential example of how videogaming has progressed over the years. From 2D, turban filled platforming of the late eighties to the 3D enemy-laden world of 2010, but still retaining the recognisable...

Regular and logical checkpointing; Tense and fun horde battles; Larger set level design requiring a bit of grey matter combined with nimble controller use

Audio dropouts; Bland corridor trap sequences; Rinse and repeat boss battles; Polish issues, including crashes and level leaks

Boring combat threatens to ruin your fun, but exciting platforming and strong artistic design make the prince's latest adventure well worth playing.

Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Review

 

Seemingly abandoning the remake of Prince of Persia, forgotten sands ties in with both the new movie, and with the older ‘sands of time' series- is it a [...]

Backgrounds ; Some great set pieces ; Ties well with film

Shiny Prince ; Control issues ; Combat

"Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands" is an odd choice from Ubisoft. They have seemingly abandoned the previous remake, to go back to a less characterful prince, who looks a bit odd. Whilst there are some great set pieces, and the core platforming is...
