As we haven't been able to give you a proper review of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, our review version having probably been lost in some parallel universe, we will make it up to you by showing you the first 10 minutes of the retail version we were sent this week. Being in a pleasing mood this week-end, other videos will come if you guys want to see a bit more of the game. Enjoy! Update 2: Third part added.
This new episode in the franchise reminds a lot of the Sands of Time trilogy games, especially the first one, this as soon as the introductory tutorial sequence you can see down below. The platforming is then unsurprisingly pleasant, which cannot be said for the combat, that is actually about as (un)interesting as it was in Sands of Time. Compared with today's standards, it falls short of what is now expected in the genre.
Gaphically speaking, the game looks ok overall, nice in some cases, but the Assassin's Creed engine is clearly not used to its full potential. That being said, it is quite a fun game to play and in the few hours I have played so far, I have not gotten bored yet.
Apparently rather short (according to the different reviews), with only a normal and easy mode to choose from, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands may not be the AAA title hardcore gamers should not miss, but it is nonetheless an enjoyable game that is also faithful to the franchise. If the platforming of the 2008 Prince did not satisfy you, you might want to give this one a try.

@GriftGFX: the world needs to open up to pvp ie 8v8 etc. Use ARMA Wasteland mod for guidance and you have a sure fire hit but they won't even be thinking that far ahead. An open world game that looks (2 Hours ago)
we need another splinter cell...only few missions deep on blacklist and it's on backlog but damn that's a good game (2 Hours ago)
I really like the idea of GRW.. I wish the world was a little more interactive and the experience a little more varied. (3 Hours ago)
I'm definitely not getting it at launch if I'm ever playing it. (3 Hours ago)
But yea.. the beta didn't really aid my interest in the game. They may have missed the mark on this one. (3 Hours ago)
