2008 brought us a new and revamped Prince Of Persia game that had nothing to do with the fantastic Prince Of Persia trilogy that came out on the Playstation 2 and Xbox. While some (like myself) liked this new take on the series, others were put off by the drastic changes. I really liked the new PoP but felt that the platforming sections were too simplistic and I really missed the myriad of puzzles from the older games. Ubisoft saw fit to bring us back to the old trilogy with The Forgotten Sands. Why bring us back to this world? Probably because there was a Prince Of Persia movie hitting theaters. Lucky for us, instead of getting some cheap movie tie in game, we are treated to another adventure with the Prince we grew fond of in the previous console generation. Playing this game was like visiting an old friend that you haven’t seen for a while and finding out that you still really enjoy their company.
