Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is looking really sexy, despite the Prince's mawkish cartoon face. In fact, it's looking so good that I'm convinced Ubisoft's one-button Prince of Persia from 2008 was just a sinister marketing scheme, all convoluted to make Forgotten Sands look that much better.
This video definitely tells PoP fans what they want to hear -- a familiar control scheme, an atmosphere similar to Sands of Time, and classic time-manipulating abilities all work together to make Forgotten Sands look like the game Ubisoft should have released the last time around. So yeah, that's good.
Seriously though, the Prince looks like a stuffed animal gone wrong.
