9.5 Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown

 

It has been a LONG time since we’ve seen a proper Prince of Persia game. Back in 2020 Ubisoft had announced a remake for The Sands of Time, that quite frankly looked REALLY bad.

8.0 WarioWare Move It

But is that enough to bring players back? My initial opinion on Sonic Frontiers is that it was a diamond in the rough. It…
