Expert Verified By

Ubisoft Developers Outdid Themselves This Time!

Story Highlights
  • Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown has exceptional user reviews on Metacritic.
  • The game eclipses the likes of Assassin’s Creed 2, Far Cry 3, and Splinter Cell Chaos Theory.
  • This release is now Ubisoft’s best user-rated game on Metacritic.

Prince of Persia is back in form, producing a compelling entry as fans await the much anticipated Sands of Time remake. Following a somewhat controversial reveal, Ubisoft’s latest take on the series has been an undisputed hit.

While critic scores for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown are enough to convince any longtime fan of the series to try the stellar Metroidvania, user reviews tell a similar story. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown boasts Ubisoft’s best user scores on Metacritic.

Why it matters: Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown has led to renewed hope in Ubisoft’s games. Until recently, many began to consider the studio’s titles formulaic and uninspired, but this entry shows the developer’s potential for greatness.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown shows a user score of 9.3/10 on the platform. Compared to major Ubisoft hits, this score is significantly higher. Recently, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora became Ubisoft’s best-rated game among modern releases.

However, it still ended up falling behind major hits like Assassin’s Creed 2 and Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. Looking at the scores, the following are some of Ubisoft’s best-rated games on Metacritic by user scores.

  • Assassin’s Creed 2 – 8.8/10
  • Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – 8.4/10
  • Assassin’s Creed 4 – 8.2/10
  • Splinter Cell Chaos Theory – 8.8/10
  • Far Cry 3 – 8.4/10
  • Rayman Legends – 8.8/10
  • Prince of Persia Sands of Time – 8.7/10

Despite the gaming giant’s rich legacy, we have been unable to find many Ubisoft games rated 9/10 or higher by user scores, so Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown beats past games by a fair margin.

Breaking away from Ubisoft’s traditional open-world design, this 2D Metroidvania presents a more focused approach. With meticulous level design, a combat system that is both accessible and deep, and around 20-25 hours of content, Prince of Persia has found a new life on modern platforms.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown User Reviews on Metacritic

Looking at a few of the reviews, users have praised the art direction, combat, traversal, and level design. Some users have also pointed to the inclusion of a Persian dub, a first for this long-running franchise.

We reviewed Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown last week, and our impressions were not too different. With a score of 9/10, the game earns our badge of approval, and you should consider trying this Metroidvania refresh till Ubisoft works on the Sands of Time remake.
