Prince of Persia The Lost Crown Reviews Roundup

What can we say about the Prince of Persia The Lost Crown reviews? Since its announcement, Prince of Persia The Lost Crown has caused a lot of buzz in the community. Many were clamoring for a return of Prince of Persia for current gaming platforms, but not everyone was so happy with the announcement of this chapter.

After the storm surrounding the remake of The Sands of Time, which no longer knows when or if it will be released, players were expecting the announcement of a “classic” Prince of Persia, which The Lost Crown is not. But how will the critics have received it? In this Prince of Persia The Lost Crown reviews roundup, we'll provide you with some reviews from some of the major international gaming websites, so that you can get an idea of what the game is (and isn't).


Attack of the Fanboy – 10/10

“Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is a superb Metroidvania that reignites the franchise in exciting ways and only gets better the longer you play it. Meticulously crafted platforming mixed with exhilarating combat makes for a game that is nearly impossible to put down.” [Read full review] – Christian Bognar

Press Start Australia – 9/10

“I thoroughly enjoyed The Lost Crown. It took me a little under 18 hours to finish the game with quite a bit of exploring off the beaten track along the way – and the next day all I wanted to do was pick the game back up to get to more exploring. It’s got compelling exploration, great feeling movement, engaging combat, and satisfying puzzles. Genuine innovation in the genre and smartly integrated accessibility features make The Lost Crown a game I heartily recommend.” [Read full review] – Steven Impson

GGRecon – 9/10

“It's tempting for me to say that Prince of Persia is back with the release of The Lost Crown and leave it at that. But that feels like a disservice to a game so boldly different from its predecessors because ultimately it's more than that. While it certainly still feels like a Prince of Persia game at the core, it stands on its own merits as a consistently brilliant and challenging Metroidvania experience, holding its own against some of the genre's very best.” [Read full review] – Tarran Stockton

Wccftech – 9/10

“Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown couldn't have brought back the series after its more than a decade-long hiatus in a better way. With an engaging story, well-crafted Metroidvania mechanics, and a touch of character-action games features in its combat system, Sargon's adventure will be remembered by fans for a long time, even with its minor issues.” [Read full review] – Francesco De Meo

Shacknews – 9/10

“Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown shows that this long-running franchise still has plenty of life left in it. The main narrative is sharp, with interesting twists and reveals about the universe at large. It’s only surpassed by the combat, which challenged me in all the right ways. The future of Prince of Persia may be uncertain, but Ubisoft just gave itself one hell of a blueprint with The Lost Crown.” [Read full review] – Donovan Erskine

Digital Trends – 9/10

“Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is the best Metroidvania since 2021's Metroid Dread. It sticks to the rewarding style of exploration that makes this genre great while ensuring that experience is as seamless as possible thanks to the innovative Memory Shards system and helpful Guided Mode option. All of that is held up by a backbone of silky smooth platforming and combat that's as easy or difficult as you want it to be.” – [Read full review] – Tomas Franzese

COGconnected – 8.5/10

“Setting aside the expectation that The Lost Crown is the next mainline Prince of Persia title will help players appreciate the game for what it is. The Lost Crown is a fun and engaging 2.5D action platformer. It borrows a number of mechanics from several years’ worth of recent Metroidvanias, but adds a few ideas and quality of life features of its own, too. Maybe best of all, it’s a game for both newcomers and Metroidvania veterans. Accept it for what it is and The Lost Crown is a solid and well-made game, with excellent mechanics, plenty of content and challenge.” [Read full review] – Mark Steighner

Gaming Nexus – 8.5/10

“Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown strikes a harmonious balance between combat, puzzles, and exploration, providing a satisfying blend for players. The shadow of the deluxe edition looms, introducing cosmetic items and early access at a questionable price point. Despite this, the core game experience remains untarnished, making the deluxe edition an optional, albeit somewhat disappointing, add-on. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is a delightful journey, offering a well-paced adventure that managed to keep me engaged from start to finish.” [Read full review] – Elliot Hilderbrand

TechRaptor – 8/10

“Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is a competent, action-packed metroidvania that mostly balances the rule of cool with exciting combat and responsive platforming. If you like over-the-top shonen anime, it’s worth checking out for the boss fights alone.” [Read full review] – Robert Scarpinito

Push Square – 8/10

“Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown puts its best foot forward with rewarding and satisfying gameplay at its core. Combining the series' 2D past with the time-bending powers from later games, this Metroidvania is a brilliant blend that brings the franchise back in a fresh new way. While it can sometimes look a little underwhelming, and the sheer size of the game threatens to slow its own momentum, the fluid, challenging platforming and combat are so fun that any shortcomings fade into the background. This is an overall great action adventure with a lot to offer.” [Read full review] – Stephen Tailby
