While the story doesn’t quite match the brilliance of its gameplay, the game’s polished combat, gorgeous visuals, and engaging mysteries make it a must-play for genre fans and Prince of Persia veterans alike.

8/10

Returning to a 2D perspective lets Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown perfect its controls and combat while capturing everything that was great about the heyday of the series.

9/10

Prince of Persia boldly reinvents itself as a metroidvania, and it feels like it has found its new home.

72/100

A palatable metroidvania with a mediocre story, my biggest frustration with The Lost Crown is how long it takes to get to the good stuff.
