Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown

PLAYED ON: Nintendo Switch

It’s been quite some time since Ubisoft released a title which a lot of players (& critics) actually enjoyed. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown emerges as a fascinating entry into the metroidvania genre and drawing inspiration from classic titles like Metroid Dread, it delivers a compelling experience that captivates players from start to finish.

The game's core mechanics, including movement, combat, and exploration and the fluid platforming sequences, challenging puzzles, and satisfying combat encounters are commendable. The ability to customize difficulty settings and playstyle through the amulet system adds depth to the gameplay, allowing you to tailor the experience to your preferences. Such small bits really enhance the experience as a whole.

Boss fights stood out as exhilarating highlights, providing thrilling challenges that test your skills and reflexes. While there were some occasional bugs, such as soft locks and frame drops, they did not diminish the overall enjoyment of the game.

Visually, The Lost Crown impresses with its vibrant art style and intricate level design. The world of Mount Qaf is richly detailed, featuring diverse biomes and unique settings that invite exploration. The addition of the memory shard screenshot feature enhances the exploration experience, allowing you to mark points of interest on the map and revisit areas with ease.
