Game Review – Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

Jumping, wall running, jumping some more, hanging off cliffs, swinging, dodging swinging axes, rolling under spinning blades, and scaling walls of various surface types, yes this is a Prince of Persia game.

I’m just a guy who really likes racing and racing games.

My current favorite racing titles? Need For Speed: Shift and Forza Motorsports 2 (Forza 3 didn’t really do it for me).

That being said, the combination of being a racing fan and writing game reviews has come with a penalty; the eternal wait for Gran Turismo 5 has been unbearable.

With a firm release date of November 2, 2010 the wait may finally be over.

Has the development cycle been so long that the game has stagnated, been passed by other franchises in design and performance, that it will release with a whimper and a groan?
