  Very good

This was the first prince of persia i played and was pleasantly surprised. The hp and level up system is fun and the game isnt that hard so you dont get stressed when you die unlike some games. The main reason for this is you have a limited re wind time function. This is a slightly altered yet new ability in the series. Overall good fun 4/5

Ive had this sitting on my shelf for ages when everybody migrated to BF3 from Gears 3 i thought id give it a go, glad i did, its amazing has me hooked im getting towards the end now but as above if anyone can finish in 3-4 hrs id be suprised its a good 8-10 if you play through properly. well worth the price tag.

  Must Buy !!

A brilliant game short but is good for 10 a bit short but the boss battles and graphics make up for that if your a fan of the prince of persia film buy this!

This game brought back so many memories from when I was a kid. shame it was a pritty short but oh well I paid less then 10 pounds for it. Gameplay is brillient but they could of made the combat a bit harder and added more combos etc. But overall more than worth the money I paid

  Great buy for under a tenner!

Good points
-Platforming is really good, with the inclusion of powers such as freezing water.
-In the latter stages, combat is fun with different types of enemies and when powers become available for the prince.
-Loads of enemies in the screen at one time.

Bad points
-Predictable story.
-Combat is easy.
-Graphics is uneven, at some stages it looks brilliant and other stages looks a bit dated.
-Quite short, even with the enemy waves after the game is complete.

Overall it is a good buy for only 8.99, some easy achievement points to be had and a bit of fun along the way. What makes this game stand out to others has to be the platforming.

this game is epic in it's awesomeness, I'm glad the designers of the franchise decided to go back to the original story, and the new upgrade system gives it a great new twist. however the controls are a bit glitchy, this isn't much of a problem but it can mean that you make mistakes whilst playing. i would have gave it 4.9 stars but that isn't and option. this is a great addition to one of my favorite gaming franchises of all time

This is an absolutely awesome game. It is such an improvement from the rubbish prince of persia game that was before this. It has gone back to its roots of how the game was in Sands of Time and is really fun to play. It is for all fighing and action fans and, of course, fans of Prince of Persia. Graphics and cinematics are amazing and the gameplay is great fun! The only problem with this game is that it is short, its about 3 - 4 hours worth of gaming, but what a 3 - 4 hour use of time! It is really good. I love this game!

  Short but Sweet...

After the last PoP release being a bit of a let down (to put it lightly) "The Forgotten Sands" brings back everything good about the series. The cinematics, graphics and gameplay are all top notch, the only let down is the longetivity.

With my last Xbox purchase being Final Fantasy 13, the 7-8 hour storyline in TFS seems woefully inadequate.

After completing the story, there is very little to do. The challenge mode adds a nice twist, but it all feels inadequate to justify the game being around 40 pounds. I'm very glad I waited until the price dropped.
