Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is the fourth game of the orginal series started on PS2. But yet, this game is supposed to be set between "The Sands of Time" and "The Warrior Within". The Prince made his way to his brother, Malik, who rules a whole kingdom since many years. But the timing wasn't good, this kingdom is under attack and Malik has no choice but to try to summon the ancient and mystical army of King Solomon. That's his first mistake...

Miss-able trophies?: Got Walkthrough? / Untouchable / Invincible

- Start the game on normal difficulty then immediately switch to easy difficulty to earn the first 'n totally dumb trophy "Our Little Secret".
- I suggest that when it's done to get back to the main screen and start over a new game on normal difficulty to really enjoy the game (easy is way TOO easy).
- One playthrough is needed to earn most of the trophies. You'll unlock the last ones with the "Ennemy Tides Challenge".
- If you want to search by yourself before pickup this guide : you'll know that a sarcophagus is near when you'll see numerous little blue shimmering spots.
Unlock all other trophies.
Self explanatory: get all others trophies to get this ultimate trophy.
Purchase every item in the upgrade menu.
You won't earn enough XP to max out every upgrades at the end of the game. You'll need to beat some Tides Challenge 6 or 7 times to acquire your last upgrades and unlock this trophy. During the game, we'll need to have some specific powers to earn some trophies. First, buy every level 1 powers to unlock all related trophies as soon as possible. Second step is to max out the Stone Armor ASAP for Untouchable/Invicible and try to have unlocked the bonus time for the Water Flow power when you reach the last part of the game. The rest is up to you.
Find and break every sarcophagus.
The "most" difficult trophy of the game (yeah 2 stars, woh !). There's 21 sarcophagus and you'll need to find them all in ONE playthrough.
Not what it looks like
One of the easiest bosses you'll ever defeat. It has 3 attack sequences :
1- He summons a stack of mobs.
2- He tries to punch you.
3- He fires some explosives thunderbolts.
You can only hit him (his shining medal) while he tries to punch you.
Upgrade one power to level 4.
No need to have an offensive power upgraded to level 4 during your playthrough as the fights are incredibly easy but the Stone Armor is highly recommended.
Finish the final battle against Ratash without taking any damage.
Easy trophy if you have upgraded your Stone Armor up to level 4. Just summon your armor when you have to fight some summoned mobs and while Ratash tries to punch you and save your energy points when he attacks you with thunderbolts as it's incredibly easy to dodge them.
Prince of Tides
Complete the Enemy Tides Challenge.
Available after you beat the game. Very easy challenge: you'll have to survive during 8 waves of mobs but you'll start this challenge with every upgrades you have unlocked. Summon your Stone Armor and rush your ennemies.
Move on solidified water for 1 minute without using the Power of Time.
Very useless trophy except to test some acrobatic skills. Note that the Warter Flow power has a 10 seconds timer but a high recover rate so the Water Flow upgrade isn't strongly needed but it helps. Two methods to earn this trophy :
1- Right after you gain the Water Flow power, find a spot where you can freeze 2 water spouts. Grab and circle around the first until you've used 75% of the Water Flow bar. Now jump to the second spout, release and press again right before grabbing it. Repeat backward and forward until you earn the trophy.
2- When you reach the King's Tower, you'll need to climb an entire tower from inside. Step onto a switch to create 2 waterwalls. Freeze them and jump/climb until you are stuck. Continue to jump forward and backward between the two frozen walls and quickly release and press to refill your Water Flow bar.
This is Persia!
Kick 20 enemies off of ledges.
You have a whole playthrough to complete this trophy, try to kick as often as possible your ennemies to a ledge with until he falls.
Defeat Ratash in the Throne Room without taking any damage.
This fights has a checkpoint at the middle, be sure that you haven't lose any health 'cause you can't reload the checkpoint of the beginning of the fight. Your first encounter with Ratash : summon your Stone Armor and spam your saber's combos until Ratash jump to a higher place and tries to launch fireballs at you. Climb until you reach him (no need to activate the Stone Armor) and finish the fight with your Stone Armor.
Jump on enemies 30 times in a row without falling or using the Power of Time.
Right after the Sand Army is free, you'll have several opportunities to earn this trophy. Try to pack the mobs, jump on an ennemy's shoulders and immediately jump to another sand soldier. It needs a little practice but it's very easy : don't try to jump to an empty space, always aim for a place where a soldier is. This trophy is impossible to unlock if there is some soldiers with shields within the pack as they will make you fall as soon as you'll try to jump on them.
Perform 20 Aerial Slash attacks.
Aerial Slash : jump on an ennemy's shoulders and immediately hit the button to finish him off. Repeat 20 times in a whole playthrough.
And King of Blades
Kill 500 enemies with the sword.
Don't worry about this one, if you haven't earned it as you finish the game, you will have it when you'll go for the "Ennemy Tides Challenge".
And stay down!
Use the finishing lunge 20 times.
Kick your ennemies with until they fall, approach them and hit for a finishing blow. Repeat 20 times in a whole playthrough.
Break 100 vases and sarcophagi.
Break every vases you'll see until you unlock the trophy.
Attack from all angles
Knock down 15 enemies using the aerial kick.
Aerial kick : jump straight to an ennemy and hit . Doesn't work with shielded soldiers and massive mobs. Repeat 15 time in a whole playthrough.
Defeat an enemy by doing a power attack in the fifth hit in a combo.
Hit 4 times and hold it for the fifth hit for a power attack. The fifth hit must kill an ennemy.
Save the Prince's life by using the Power of Time.
The first time you'll use the Power of Time to save the Prince you'll unlock it.
David and Goliath
Finish 5 titans with the Aerial Slash.
The titan is a huge sand soldier with a big sword and his own health bar. Start to lower the titan's health until he's kneeling. Now jump on his shoulders and finish him with . Don't worry if you miss some opportunities because there's always a titan in the final wave of the "Ennemy Tides Challenge".
Death from Above
Finish off 10 enemies in a row using only the Aerial Slash.
You must use the aerial slash 10 times in a row. Do it right after you've freed the Sand Army 'cause the basic sand soldier can be killed with a single aerial slash.
Ding! Level Up!
Purchase your first upgrade.
Purchase an upgrade and you'll become sooooooooooooooo powerful (and unlock a trophy too).
Floors are for losers
Wall run for a total of 1/2 mile (805 meters).
Don't worry about this one, you'll unlock it very early during your playthrough.
Knock down 5 enemies with one kick.
Pack some basic sand soldiers and kick one of them to make fall several mobs with him.

Kill 50 enemes in a row without being hit and without using upgrade powers or the Power of Time.
There's a little trick for that. Play until you find a spot with about ten basic sand soldiers. Kill them, reload a previous checkpoint and repeat. It won't break your combo.
Swift as the Wind
Defeat 30 enemies using the Power of Flight.
You'll gain that power when you're on the Rooftops. You'll have many opportunities to kill a mob with it. If you haven't unlocked it as you finish the game, you can do it during the "Ennemy Tides Challenge".
