Prince Of Persia: Forgotten Sands Debut Trailer – Sandy And Samey?

POPforgottensands

We got our first glimpse of Ubisoft’s latest Prince Of Persia title The Forgotten Sands this weekend at the VGAs and the reception to it has been mixed. Forgotten Sands is clearly making a move back to the last run of games that began with Sands Of Time, pasting over this generation’s Prince title. We doubt that is any true reflection of Ubisoft Montreal’s efforts last year; rather it is an admittance that the old style games fit more comfortably with the upcoming Hollywood adaptation starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

But as we say reaction has been mixed. Many people disliked the new direction the series took last time out in terms of art style and once again the look of Forgotten Sands is getting criticism from fans. Over on the official forums there is much concern over the new character model (who seems like a half-way meeting of the original prince and Gyllenhaal, but not exactly either of them), but still some hope that at the very least Forgotten Sands will over a significant challenge to seasoned POP players.

We’ll hold our judgment until we see the game itself in full flow, but right now there must be some people at Ubisoft who feel as if they’re damned if they do and damned if they don’t with the POP franchise.

Anyway, take a look at the debut trailer for yourselves and make up your own minds. Enjoy.
