  • Summary: Battles of Prince of Persia’s storyline takes place between "Prince of Persia The Sands of Time" and "Prince of Persia: Warrior Within." The game focuses on the appearance of the Dahaka and how the Prince, while trying to rid himself of the terrible creature, ignites a conflict between Persia and India by releasing an ancient evil that has caused much death and devastation. Players can battle it out from not only the Prince’s perspective, but also from that of several Generals who hold key roles in the conflict between the nations. Game features include: New depth in tactical gameplay: A host of original rules bring a fresh depth to tacticals games. Collect and trade cards: By advancing in the single player mode, collect money and purchase new cards to trade and make more powerful decks. Don’t like your cards? Trade them with your friends. Play any of the nine Generals in single player or in multiplayer. Create the army you want from any of the three factions and 27 units. Fully customizable multiplayer mode ensures replay value. Challenge someone who has the game or someone who doesn’t in either Multiboot mode or Hotseat. [Ubisoft] Expand

  1. This games intricacies are well worth the reward. [Feb 2006, p.111]

    If you hate turn-based strategy and card collecting games, this probably isn't for you, no matter how big a fan of the series you are. But if you can keep an open mind, or if you really want to learn more of the Prince of Persia back story, this is a fun game that has a lot going for it.
  3. The presentation could have been a little cleaner, especially with the colored box units that are present throughout entire battles, and the forced combination of touch screen and button control could be a stumbling block for some players.

    Battles isn't as multifaceted as Advance Wars, nor does it convey the fairy-tale personality of its console cousins, but we encourage you to look past the plain façade: there's some unexpectedly engaging gameplay buried under it.
  5. It’s all in the cards. Play the campaign to earn them and then use them to build your decks. [Mar 2006, p.91]
  6. Though the game's stylus-based controls are tight, and for a while seems to offer a nice distraction, it soon becomes a chore to pick it up at all. With little story incentive and no hope for variety, you probably won't make it past the halfway mark.
  7. 40
    A strategic card battler that's missing out on any fun, intuitive design, or, worst of all, a point. Stick to your "Advance Wars" and leave this battlefield empty.
