Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown review scores are in and it’s 2024’s first hit game!

With Ubisoft having the Rayman Origins/Legends developers make Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, fans were hoping they could make this 2.5D action-adventure, platformer, metroidvania mix a smash hit.

That’s exactly what seems to be happening with Metacritic‘s average review score now hovering around 86%, for example out of 61 reviews for PS5. The Switch version has only 15 reviews, but is being even better received with a 89% average score. Fans have been quoted as saying they haven’t had this much fun with a Ubisoft/POP game, since 2003’s Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. Wow!

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown looks beautiful and runs smoothly on all platforms.

Ubisoft confirmed that the Switch version offers 60 FPS at 720p (handheld) and 1080p (docked), while the Xbox Series X and PS5 can run the game at up to 120 FPS (with a 120Hz TV or monitor) at 4K resolution. Xbox Series S delivers 60 FPS at 1440p, while PS4 Pro and Xbox One X can run the game at 60 FPS in 4K. Finally, PS4, Xbox One, and Amazon Luna offer 60 FPS at 1080p.

Xbox Series X runs it even better than PS5 at 120 FPS according to DigitalFoundry.
