Zavvi's POP1 Prince of Persia discount code has just gone live- and it currently provides the cheapest price for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of The Forgotten Sands. It'll save you a quid compared to...well, Zavvi themselves- though HMV also retail at £17.95 if you're wary of Zavvi's customer service. Whilst I've never had any problems, there are a few horror stories out there.

Matt's full review can fill you in with the details, but suffice to say that The Forgotten Sands offers a solid yet uninspired Prince of Persia outing. Slotting into the seven year canonical gap between Sands of Time and Warrior Within, this game fills niftily retcons in an entirely new story revolving around the Prince's need to clear up his brother's mess.
The mess in question is a horde of slavering sand zombies that are laying waste to the kingdom. Whilst the series' trademark fluid and creative platforming is back on form, the combat is extremely sluggish and feels like filler material. Plus, you'll find it difficult to shake the constant nagging realisation that you've played this game before... only better. Still, it's a handy little game that's a steal at this price- though we'll keep you up to date if it continues to slide into the magical sub-£15 zone.
Thanks to andywedge at Hot UK Deals for spotting both this voucher and this deal well ahead of time.
