Games Reviews: Prince of Persia: The
Friday 28 May 2010
£29.99 – £49.99
Format DS, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360
When the Prince’s older brother unwittingly unleashes the army of King Solomon, it falls to the Prince to leap, climb and hack his way to a solution. To aid him is a Djinn who grants him the power to bound chasms, wield magical attacks and control time. Forgotten Sands has fine aesthetics and somewell-scripted puzzles, but is limited by lifeless combat and a lack of any real “wow” moments. There’s fun to be had, but there are better examples of the adventure genre out there; a prince yes, but one that falls short of being king.
