Prince of Persia Forgotten Sands: First Look video with gameplay footage

The poor ol’ Prince has had a rough time of it. The original Prince of Persia is widely considered to be a solid gold classic, nobody liked the 3D one much, there was the godawful decision to turn him into a murderous emo in Warrior Within, there have been a string of mediocre spin – offs and sequels, and the most recent cel – shaded instalment split opinion pretty much right down the middle. But just look at the gameplay in this video.

The best PoP game of the last generation, and arguably the best of the series to date, was Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Sumptuous visuals, perfectly judged sound design, an enthralling story that even managed to avoid a ‘happily ever after’ ending, and smooth as silk acrobatics and combat. Judging by the gameplay footage seen here, Forgotten Sands should be closer to that game than any of the others.

After watching the game in action and listening to the devs natter on, we’ve got high hopes for this game. But will looks turn out to be deceiving? Time will tell…
