IGN writes: "The platforming in Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands brought back that feeling of wonder. If videogames weren't a 12-month-a-year hobby these days, I'd gladly drop whatever knitting class I would have taken up to leap around in this game.
Set in the seven-year period between Sands of Time and Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within, The Forgotten Sands has the Prince team up with his brother Malik to stop some folks from invading Malik's kingdom. When things get rough, the brother unleashes a sand army that turns the tide in the brothers' favor, but it also turns everyone in the kingdom to sand and basically declares war on the boys. Fortunately, they're protected from the transition to sand by the medallion they each wear, which also gives the brothers mysterious powers."
