Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands really doesn't do the franchise justice. It has some interesting new puzzle mechanics, but so much more could have been done with them. It's the key problem with The Forgotten Sands, a lack of depth. The story is shallow, the puzzle elements are shallow, the combat is shallow and it also has next to no replay value. Add to that poor presentation, and The Forgotten Sands feels like a game that was rushed out the door simply to tie-in with the big budget Hollywood release, instead of a standalone product as it's billed.
