Did you play far enough to get the water power wysiwyg? That is when the game gets crazy and different.

This game will go down as one of the most underrated games of the year if you ask me. It starts kinda slowly but the game doesn't have an imbalances and it just keeps plugging along ticking the right boxes.

Sands of Time did have frustrating combat and for me it was one reason the game could never be in the great game category. Forgotten Sands combat is great fun and pretty smooth. I think the game looks pretty damn good too - no idea why some people complain about the graphics. The platforming is much less about waiting for things to happen and more about pressing the right buttons, in that way it keeps the game flowing nicely.

I second NarcissistZero's comments about getting this game if you enjoyed Sands of Time, it's a good match. If anybody is interested I wrote a review for it

buggy piece of ****! last time i buy an ubisoft game...i think these morons spent more time on their DRM than making sure the game didn't have bugs. i've actually had to lower the resolution at some parts of the game because when i grab a column in the bath the game can't deal with it and i end up holding the air.

Never had that problem... one of the smoothest, best working PC ports in a long time.

The game starts really, really slow. I almost quit, because it looked they dumbed everything down, but after you get the water power it gets a lot better. Still not as good as the other three, but a very solid 7/10.

Completed it yesterday. I enjoyed myself but the game is to damn easy and not challenging enough. Also far to short for my liking it was over when i was properly reving myself up. Very good game but it could have been a lot better though

It is short, but I got it cheap... $50 for it is way too much, and $60 on console is ridiculous. For the $25 I paid on amazon though, I got my money's worth.

I got it for 17.99 of Amazon and that was the 360 version. Nice and cheap and you know what, the game looks damn good to.

I read there is no blood in-game.Just some blue sparks which look totally out of place.Is the game available in a censored version or something? I saw it at EB yesterday and almost grabbed it.
