A decade after Brøderbund developed and released Prince of Persia 2, Ubisoft released several more out of this successful game franchise. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is the latest game from Ubisoft. If you have enjoyed playing Prince of Persia (2008), chances are that you may not like The Forgotten Sands. The latest release is similar to Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. In The Forgotten Sands, you will spend a lot of time jumping from one pillar to another, thinking about how to reach that end of a room. And, unlike Prince of Persia (2008), you are pretty much alone in the entire quest. Personally, I liked Prince of Persia (2008). After finishing the entire game, I don’t have a good overall impression over The Forgotten Sands.
So what I don’t like about The Forgotten Sands? Yes. The graphics are good. Unless you are a fan of The Sands of Time, however, you will get tired of repeating the same sequence. In this game, you explore a big room by jumping from a pillar to another to reach the other side. Then you will go through a hallway into another room, avoiding traps. Then you will fight some low-level enemies. Occasionally, you run into a level boss, which is weak. Actually, the same boss will show up again and again.
This QuickTime gameplay video covers part of The Works, the entire level of Fortress Courtyard and ends at the beginning of The Fortress Gates. The gameplay video is almost 54 minutes long.
