Having played Prince of Persia since the old days on PC then moving to the PS2 sands of time; which was a big jump for Prince of Persia, Prince of Persia : The Forgotten Sands lives up to the fantastic standard set by its predecessors.
In this game they have also added a new level of gameplay which asks upon the player to step up their gaming reflexes by having to employ quick and swift timing (including several times having to freeze and unfreeze in succession) to be able to sucessfully make their way through the huge maze obstacles that lie between you and your destiny. Along the way you also pick up a few new tricks like manipulating water, using the power of the elements including earth, wind, ice and fire and the ability to dash through the air at your foes at blinding speed.
All in all its not a massive leap forward in terms of the gameplay but parts of the game were excitingly challenging and well worth the purchase. Fans will not be disappointed with this latest installment of Prince of Persia
A definite two thumbs up :)
