Excerpt: GameSpot’s Best and Worst of 2004 feature included a Dubious Honours category, under which they had a sub-category for ‘Most Baditude.’ Think of baditude as that fake brand of rebellion sold to fans of Linkin Park, or the kind for whom The Fast and the Furious is a docudrama.
Conclusion: also brings a marvelous soundtrack into the mix with music that is closer to the in terms of style. Sweeping tunes and atmospheric sounds flow in and out of the game at various points and the voice acting is second to none.
Conclusion: I'm sad that this is the last game, at least for a while, and I'm hoping that someday we'll see a continuation or a new beginning with the same style of gameplay. I would recommend that everyone who is a fan of the series give this game a shot, and that those of you who haven't been fortunate enough...
Pros: All of the highs of the last games in the series, wonderful gameplay, puzzles, and animation, improvements to combat from the last two;
Cons: Same old engine although this is more a fault of the aged consoles the game runs upon, AI has room for improvement, Farah isn't as sexy.
Summary: Consider this the grand finale of the Prince of Persia trilogy, because it is. The Two Thrones is easily the best game in the series. It takes the best elements from The Sands of Time and the best elements from Warrior Within and mixes them all together, creating the basis for the final installment.
Pros: Everything, this is the ultimate conclusion to the trilogy!
Summary: With the third installment in the current
series, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones restores the atmosphere of the first
game and blends it with the speed kills from the second. Playing as either the
good prince or his darker alter ego, players will find an excellent array of
puzzles and action.
Excerpt: The prince is back in what is touted as the finally installation of this current gen trilogy. The first game was a surprise hit and had everyone awaiting a sequel. A year later the Warrior Within was released and even though the critics praised it, there were a lot of fans disappointed while about...
Pros: Good Graphics, New Additions, Dark Prince, Great end to the trilogy
Cons: Occasional Glitching, Over fairly quickly, Repetitive enemies
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.
Conclusion: Apex is a solid racing title that does fall a little short in some of the key aspects of the title. The computer AI is probably the biggest problem, this is what holds the game back from being a solid simulation, and this is what also holds the game back from getting a top-notch score.
