Excerpt: The prince has come home to his kingdom and found that - surprise - it has fallen victim to an evil wizard.

Conclusion: The rest of the gameplay is executed with standard controls, like the Nunchuk's control stick to move the Prince and the B button to wall-run. The only complaint I have about the ported controls is the fact that they set the camera on the Wii-mote, by tilting it left or right and up or down.
Excerpt: Prince of Persia: Rival Swords is an updated version of last year's Two Thrones and the series' second appearance on the PSP. Although the series' last outing, Revelations , was a faithful translation, it was riddled with bugs and long load times.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I can vaguely remember when the first Prince of Persia game was released. Complete with sputtering PC speaker sound effects and 8 bit colour, it was the coolest game after IBM’s Alley Cat (go and Google that up).
Summary: Two Thrones gets double dipped for the Wii, but is it still worth playing a year and a half later?
Pros: Wii controls add a lot of depth and a fun new way to play POP; the platforming sections are as fluid as ever; quite possibly the most well written and acted story in video game history; the dark Prince is badass.
Cons: The graphics haven't aged well; aside from the wii controls, this is the exact same game that you've probably played a year and a half ago, with 3 times the current price tag; the chariot races can be frustrating.
Summary: Prince of Persia Rival Swords, based on Prince of Persia The Two Thrones. takes advantage of the Wii remote and Nunchuck, allowing players to clash swords with enemies, execute speed kills and perform the Prince's well-known acrobatic moves such as running on walls.
Excerpt: But time passed, and soon the 3rd game of the trilogy, Two Thrones, came out. I missed that, but it seems UbiSoft is not going to let me go that easily because, as if they wielded the Dagger of Time for their own ends, they have turned back time and re-released Two Thrones once again on the PSP.
