Review – Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
24 September 2008
Conclusion: Clearly this is the theme of Two Thrones: once bitten, it is too afraid to end the trilogy on a radical note. You play it more as a matter of habit than as something you are actively engaged in, and when something interesting does come along, it is gone before you can truly get into it.
Excerpt: Getting close to an unsuspecting enemy will cause things to slow down and go blurry, allowing the prince to initiate a very fast, and very stylish kill. His dagger will flash blue when the time is right to hit the attack button. If your timing is off, you'll bollocks up the sequence, and have to fight the enemy the old fashioned way, or else use a Sand Tank to rewind time and try it again.
Excerpt: On December 1st, 2005, Ubisoft released The Two Thrones , an exciting new chapter in the acclaimed Prince of Persia series. With The Two Thrones , it seems Ubisoft has tried to find a medium between the action-packed Warrior Within and the innovative puzzler of Sands of Time . The Two Thrones not only successfully does that, but also brings its fair share of new ideas and concepts to the series.
Excerpt: Ubisoft's Prince of Persia Sands of Time may well go down as one of the greatest games of this generation, and that proved to be a hard act to follow. Warrior Within performed better in the charts, but its focus on combat and a hard rock soundtrack didn't sit well with fans of the first game.
Excerpt: Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones is the latest installment from the classic series, first seen on the PC years ago in simple 2D sprites. Throughout the series and the subsequent change into the flashy 3D realm, the core feel has still been maintained, despite the much more fluid style of combat. The Prince is back again to face evil forces, and this time he has to deal with his own inner demons. Graphically, this is one sexy looking title.
Excerpt: With the new Prince of Persia game, The Two Thrones , Ubi-soft has not only revamped many aspects of the gameplay, with more attacks, combos, boss fights and so on, but they've also introduced a new and completely different playable character! Well, sorta...
Excerpt: Indeed, altering the past gets our Prince in trouble once again. His shenanigans in Warrior Within might've seemed righteous at the time, but Two Thrones opens up with our shaggy, young noble returning home to an empire under siege. The Vizier is alive again and essentially everything that was accomplished in Sands of Time has been reversed. Familiar characters don't even recognize our poor Prince, but that doesn't mean he's alone.
Excerpt: Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones (hereafter T2T) is the latest installment in the long-running Prince of Persia franchise and is the third, allegedly final part of the storyline that began in 2003’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and continued in 2004’s Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.
Conclusion: The best PoP yet, simple as that. A kick ass storyline and gameplay that fixes the mistakes of the past game while building on the strengths of it and the original, this is an experience that everyone should partake in.
