1.0 out of 5 stars FROM PRINCE TO PAUPER... 11 Jun. 2010
By NeuroSplicer TOP 100 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
It was only 2008 when UBISOFT was praised as a gamer's publisher, a company that respected and listened to its customers - while the usual villains (...EA and 2K GAMES) found themselves at the receiving end of their wrath. Well, what a difference two years make!

BEEN THERE. DONE THAT.
The gameplay on this new installment of the PRINCE OF PERSIA series is as stale as pita-bread found in Baghdad ruins. Running on walls, twirling around poles and jumping from handhold to handhold has been done again and again. Innovation may be in short supply in the current gaming industry but why was there a need to add yet another game to the series since no new ideas were available? It feels like yet another cookie from the cookie-cutter.

AS *NOT* SEEN IN THE MOVIES
Seen the blockbuster movie and loved it? Well, do not expect the game to have anything to do with it. Instead of a Jake Gyllenhaal you get a cross between Jack Black on a crash-diet and an aggravated Marky Mark (yeah, no matter how much he tries, he will always be remembered as Marky Mark). And, it may be just me, but I do not remember Princess Razia having such a pronounced...underbite!
More importantly though, the graphics are not up to par and they make the game look like a much older title. The cut-scenes look great - but this only emphasizes how much wanting the gameplay is found visually.

CATCH THE SOAPS - PERSIAN STYLE!
Selective amnesia and evil siblings must be the most overused plot trick in soaps. True, most games do not require a great background story to work and be fun. Some rare masterpieces do but it is not an absolute requirement.
Then again, at times, Mario saving Princess Peach over and over seems to have a deeper plot than FORGOTTEN SANDS.

3.0 out of 5 stars is it someting new or something old?? 18 Jun. 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
when i first installed this game i was excited about a new sequel to sands of time, however after completing it i realised that i am playing something i have already played. sure it has a new storyline which is intriguing and the addition of more enemies and obstacles make the player constantly alert but it still feels very basic. the combat system is simplistic such as the one in the sands of time and the enemies are both few and very easy to kill. this game is not challenging at all for players. it only took me one attempt to kill Ratasha whereas in warrior within it still sometimes takes me several to kill the Dahaka.

overall i have to say i enjoyed the addition of the powers of nature and the new storyline but definitely felt that the game play could have been less repetitive, more creative and a tad challenging.

3.0 out of 5 stars Prince - Forgotten Sands. 9 Mar. 2014
By Sally
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
I would imagine the game is perfectly OK, but it will not work with Windows 8. My fault, I should have known, but thought I would try it anyway. Never mind!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ruined by painful camera positioning 30 Aug. 2014
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
This looks like a great game at first, until you realise that you're always running at a diagonal to run straight ahead, because too much of the time the camera will not position behind you and the controls are relative to the camera. That not only ruins the immersion, but also makes it painful to play, instead of fun. It's a shame, because apart from that it was looking like one of the best in a very good series. If they'd only stuck the camera behind you...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Return To Form 8 Mar. 2011
By smit
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played all of the Prince Of Persia games since Sands Of Time, I was pleased that The Forgotten Sands has returned to the formula that made the series great, lots of long platforming sections, interspersed with combat vs hordes of enemies and the occasional boss fight. The combat is quite basic compared to The Sands Of Time, Warrior Within and The Two Thrones, the huge array of moves you could carry out has been replaced by just a handful, the combat moves are upgradable in an rpg, xp point accumulation fashion. Although the combat is quite basic it is fun and satisfying slaying through the hordes of enemies the game throws at you, at times the numbers of enemies on screen are huge but the game retains a good framerate despite this, even at the busiest times the game runs smoothly.

Graphically the game is attractive without pushing any boundaries, various shades of brown dominate the colour palette as you would probably expect from a game with magical sands as part of theme.

The much criticised Ubisoft DRM is a downside as it requires you to be constantly connected to the internet to play, I'm not a fan of this style of DRM but i'm not so opposed that i'll avoid buying and playing games that I enjoy because of its prescence, it's annoying but not a game breaker, once connected and in game you hardly know it's there.

All in all The Forgotten Sands is a solid addition to the POP series, it does nothing new but the game is fun and although the combat may offer little challenge,it is still fun and satisfying, some of the platforming sections are tricky and some may require repeated attempts to clear but frustration in this game is rare. Recommended to fans of the series and newcomers alike.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Really enjoyed the last one but this one - replete with showstopping bugs that ought to have been found in QA testing and the inane DRM (literally you need a constant connection to the internet - there is no 'offline' mode for single player like Steam games) which boots you to the desktop gracelessly should your rooter reboot or your wifi drop - is extremely short by comparison and pretty much a rehash of the same game. It's a great shame as perhaps another months QA testing and a *sensible* DRM system would of made this a much better experience. I'm really struggling to justify buying Ubisoft titles given the DRM imposed - and given the bugs apparent in this latest release that's not getting any easier.

Invest in your customers, pirates don't want to buy your games regardless!

A super game to play, according to my daughter, who has all the previous ones. A little more difficult so far but it's certainly holding her interest.
