So you run, you jump, and you hit things with your sword. But in Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands you’ll be better at all of that if you upgrade. Starting on page 15 of the guide you’ll see the in depth coverage of the upgrades. Which comes right after the densely detailed combat techniques and right before the complete coverage of the Powers of the Djinn. There isn’t a trick that we don’t cover extensively. It’s all about the moves and we know all about them.
The combat coverage is the general overview of what you can do. In the Sand Army chapter beginning on page 21 you’ll find the specific techniques to be used against every enemy in the game. Along with all the techniques they’ll be using on you. Plus you get a rundown of their durability, attacks, damage output, and the first time you encounter them just to keep you on your toes.
The walkthrough is unique. The world of Prince of Persia is one of dizzying geography and complicated architecture. Our walkthrough keeps you oriented with specific screens and a handy locating ring to pinpoint the prince in some of the more visually busy areas. You won’t spend time bumping into blank walls or making forty attempts to grab an un-grabbable ledge. Check out page 47 for a good example, including the Achievements/Trophies box outs for each section telling you what’s in store on each level. Plus all 21 of the collectible sarcophagi are mapped and showcased, like on page 56.
