Game doesn't launch
I recently purchased this game as part of the full Prince of Persia Collection.
I played The Sands of Time and Warrior Within and they played just fine.
Now, since The Forgotten Sands is newer and requires Uplay, which I fiind incredibly dumb, when I launch the game from Steam, then get Uplay and launch it from there, I get a black screen, and the mouse cursor turns to the "loading" circle of Windows, and it doesn't move from there.
When I open the task manager it shows that the program is not responding.
I'm on Win 7.
About a year ago I had played this game on my PC from another source and it played fine.

Any ideas?

Same problem. Has anyone found a resolution?

Wont start for me either. I dont even get black screen, all I get is this error message, "There was a problem starting your game. Make sure you're not running any other games that use Ubisoft Game Launcher."

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the Game Launcher in every possible way to no avail.

Try to find ubisoft game launcher and put the cd-key Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
from the steam (right click the game) and put the cd-key to ubisoft game launcher you must register the account first .

I've gotten uplay to work just fine. I've managed to load the game up all the way to the point where Uplay boots up, i login and type my CD key, Uplay loads game information and synchronizes, then I click "Play" and Uplay says "Game running..." then immediately gives me th after action report. The game never even boots up. So i exit Uplay, try to boot up the game and I start getting the error again and uplay wont even load the game information anymore. This game is all sorts of screwed up.

U purchased the complete pack wort 15$ right? Does it have anything extra coz prices of individual games add up to 12.45$ and hence there shud be something extra in it worth 2.5$ right?

There is nothing extra. Buy them individually. In fact, make sure you buy the deluxe edition of The Forgotten Sands, because it comes with The Sands of Time and has DLC for TFS and only costs $5, then buy each game that you want individually
