Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown has garnered exceptional reviews long before its official release on January 18 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series S/X, PC, and Switch.

The Long-Awaited Return

After years of dormancy in the iconic franchise, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown marks the return to the series in a bold 2D format. Notably, this installment deviates, with players taking on the role of Sargon, tasked with the mission to rescue the prince. Despite early lukewarm responses, Ubisoft’s decision to allow reviews a week ahead of the release showcases their confidence and the game’s potential impact as one of the year’s early releases.

Accolades and Praise

The game’s current standing on Opencritic and Metacritic with a solid score of 86 from 61 reviews speaks volumes. Renowned gaming site Gamespot awarded it a remarkable 9 out of 10, hailing it as a transformative entry in the series. The expressive commendation from Gamespot recognizes the game’s seamless connection and confident execution, positioning it as the new identity of Prince of Persia for the foreseeable future.

Resounding Acclaim

Michael Damiani of Easy Allies echoed the sentiment, praising the game’s successful reinvention and its potential to elevate the Metroidvania genre to new heights. Additionally, IGN’s Phil Hornshaw lauded the game’s ability to capture the essence of the series while excelling as a traditional Metroidvania with refined controls and a stylish feel. PC Gamer’s Mollie Taylor acknowledged the game as a palatable metroidvania but pointed out the slow start as a notable drawback. Push Square’s Stephen Tailby highlighted the game’s rewarding gameplay, blending the series’ 2D roots with the time-bending powers, and reimagining the franchise in a refreshing manner.
