Prince of Persia : The Forgotten Sands for PlayStation 3

In the last few months I have been able to play a few games, unfortunately, only a couple of them were good. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is not one of them.  It ranks up with one of the most annoying games I have ever played.  I will admit the graphics are nice, but then one should expect that when playing on a next gen console. However, even they get annoying because the environments are pretty much the same through the whole game.

I must admit thought I have not played any other Prince of Persia game but I can guarantee I will never play another one due to how annoying this one was.  I found the whole game very repetitive and truthfully not that much fun. You run, jump, swing, climb over and over and over and over and over and over again and again and again……..yes it is the whole game.  Every now and then you will face some baddies but it seems they are only there to break up the running, jumping, swinging, climbing to go right back into the running, swinging, jumping, climbing again.  So as you go through this game running, jumping, swinging, and climbing again and again hopefully the controls are kinder to you than they were to me.  Trying to time everything again and again and the turn back time doesn’t really help at all either.

The story is boring. The game is frustrating at times and just plain…yes ANNOYING.  If it was for the Uplay points I needed for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood I would have stopped playing this game sometime shortly after the first segment when I noticed it wasn’t going to get any better.

Parents, there is some violence. No blood, the creatures just turn to sand.
