Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
Community Spotlight: X360A Takes On The Prince In His Latest Adventure

Last Wednesday X360A, Ubisoft and a ton of community members (both from here and the Ubisoft forums) took to the streets of Reading to partake in some wall-running and sword slaying action. No, we did not dress up as pirates and attempt to take back the town- we all know what happened last time we tried that - but we did descend upon the town's Gamerbase to play Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands before next week's worldwide release.
As usual wherever there is a scoop, I'm there with our camera, however, some say I'm easily lured with the promise of pizza. Regardless, a good chunk of you got a good 3 hours hands-on time with the game and we were there to ask your opinions. A great night was had by all - yes, we're speaking for those that went - so check out us invading people's privacy and sticking a camera in their face. Go us!

Hmm... I'm with Rich.
This just screams Movie tie-in, it looks dodgy, the prince does not look like the prince, it looks rushed.
Once again, looks like they didnt even try with the chevos.

Im skeptical, i would have preferred another one of the 08 version, but this just looks like ANOTHER Bad movie game tie-in.

I only think this is a tie-in because he looks just like Jake Glynhall.

Also, semi on-topic - doesn't the release date need to be changed on the PoP:FS page?

Haven't really bought any of the PoP game's due to the fact that they don't interest me.

I think it looks really good. The last POP for me was just a megafail, you spend a whole level repetitively collecting some white orbs simply to encounter one fight which is impossible to lose anyway. I'm just glad to see POP return to its roots.

Although I will wait for it to go down in price which will be very soon I imagine.

The originals back in the day of SNES etc was classics, they did a great one on the PS2 (Sands of Time) and then every game since has been pretty much a let down in my eyes. I'm trying to avoid all the hype on this till i can give it a rent and try it out for myself. Made the mistake of hype following (and been an old favourite of mine anyway) with CoD.

I agree with Big Rich, just for any of you North Americans in case you're thinking about buying it tomorrow: definately rent it first. Quite glad I got the chance to play it there as I might have bought it otherwise. I may borrow it from a friend or rent it at some point bit it was just a bit too short and repetitive for me. Plenty of easy achievements though.

I reckon Dan Webb could beat the Prince at an arm wrestle in less than 20 seconds.

@#20 - I think they mean cash-grab, rather than tie-in =P
