Game Review: Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (Playstation 3)
  |  @   |  

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
PS3, Xbox 360
Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release Date: May 18, 2010

The latest installment in the highly-popular Prince of Persia franchise comes along with the recently released summer blockbuster movie adaptation, but they are not the same. The best decision that Ubisoft could have been made with this new game is to pass over the opportunity to use the star-power of Jake Gyllenhaal, and stand strong in the world and stories that they’ve created.

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands isn’t a prequel or a sequel but an interquel, taking place in between Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and Prince of Persia: Warrior Within. The story follows our nimble prince as he heads to the palace of his brother, Malik. When he arrives, he sees that the palace is under attack by some treasure-seeking enemies. After meeting up with Malik, the prince discovers his brothers intent to unleash the mystical Solomon’s army to help him in defeating his palace’s attackers and save his people. The prince insists this is not a good idea considering the uncertainty of a force such as Solomon’s army, but Malik proceeds with confidence.

Video Game Awards ’09: ‘Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands’ Trailer
  |  @   |  

Rounding out our coverage of the 2009 Video Game Awards, here’s the teaser trailer for the new Prince of Persia video game entitled Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and it’s an interesting prospect to behold.

Jake Gyllenhaal was on hand to introduce the game’s trailer, as well as a new (but mostly the same) trailer for his new movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The game is interesting because if you’re like me, you’ll wonder how this thing is going to play out. We all know the deal: movies adapted from video game titles are terrible and video games adapted from movies are terrible. So what happens when a video game is made that will likely be based more on the gigantic upcoming film that’s based on a hugely-popular pre-existing video game franchise? For example, as you will notice, Prince Dastan does look a tad more like Gyllenhaal in the trailer than he may have in the past. Things could go bad here, and they could go there very quickly. If the developers (Ubisoft, who have done the best of the game’s titles) stayed true to the old games this could be all the fun the others were, so let us hope and hope and hope.

You know the drill: head on over to watch the new trailer for Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and share your own thoughts!
