For all the vitriol we hurl at Wii shovelware and farming-centric Facebook games, we often forget the class of electronic entertainment most deserving of scorn: The Flash promotional game. No, not a game promoting The Flash (honestly, dude could use some love right now) but rather those diminutive, ugly trifles that litter official sites of movies and (in some cases) fast food restaurants.
So understand that when we say, "This Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Flash game
is actually kind of good!" it comes from people who expect the worst from this particular breed. That said ... it is
kind of good, right? In an overly complicated Canabalt
sort of way?
