Good to hear. I still have a billion other games to play, (including FFXIII) so I might grab this laters, prob on sale. I still haven't played the PoP before this one either. ::

As far as I knew The Sands of Time was known to have annoying combat, and I thought the reviews mostly talked bad about the combat but praised everything else. Now comes Forgotten Sands with it's rather easy combat and 90% focus on platforming and people/reviews complain there is no combat depth.

You just can't please people.

I am having a blast with this game, personally. I'm flying through it, which I only do with games I really, really like.

Beat the game... had an absolute BLAST with it. The second half is extremely intense as you have to juggle water freezing, platform creation and a mid-air jump power all back and forth in and out. It gets mind-bending.

There is also a very Half-Life 2 super gravity gun moment toward the end, and the final battle is epic. Loved the game, shame no one seems to be into it.

I know this games timeline occurs between Sands of Time and Warrior Within but i want to finish Two thrones before i get this game as TT is the only one i havent completed and i am going through it now. The less said about Prince of Persia (2008) the better.
