The Forgotten Sands is one of the BEST games in the Prince of Persia series, very underrated. The acrobatic platforming is amazing, mixing up powers like freezing water, making parts of the ruins reappear and rewinding time it's very enjoyable. Some sequences are hard and may require flawless timing. Sadly, the story is not the best but I do recommend this game over the 2008 reboot which has really boring platforming.

In this part of the Prince's most failed me two things. One of them is a struggle . Surely you remember the possibility of piss- free-hand in the Soul Warrior or two thrones ? It's not here . Here, as in the sands of time, prince breaks one combination ( True Power Attacki yet , but that does not change the fact of things. ) Can do 5 attacks on each combo attacks , attacking fast , strong , alternating , and as soon as we . But one thing I must write : Fight reminded not fight we remember from WW or TTW , but more hack n ' slashową , something the Devil May Cry , but it is more poorly . In almost all (except the Two Thrones ) Prince had a whole arsenal of weapons " indestructible ", these have changed with the progress in the game, here we are just ... Two Swords, phi ! You also can not take weapons from enemies , or crunched only one sword, for around 80 % of the game , and the rest , such that each removes virtually blow . What is new are the powers of the elements and RPG elements , as you probably know , so that I will not write anything , you will not need it ;) Here, too, nothing interesting. Opponents are so diverse , oh, so much so that I do not know if I counted 9 types . Szkieletorki - Clones , just like the rest . Interestingly , these powers are water-related and restructuring elements of the environment . While the latter was pretty cool , it is freezing and thawing of water, especially at the end of the game , and earlier, was able to bring me for the umpteenth time - . - . The worst thing for me was the length of the Forgotten sands game. The whole finished in about 7 hours.
To sum up : If you 're a fan of PoP , you can buy this part , but if you bet on the climate and length , catch the other parts, such as Warrior Within .
