  • Summary: The Prince of Persia returns to his kingdom to find it decimated by war and turned against him in Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones. You can play as the time-bending prince or his evil alter-ego as he tries to return to the throne that is rightfully his. Now there are two distinct characters, each with their own abilities and backgrounds, as you explore the urban setting of Babylon. Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones adds new Sands of Time abilities and an all-new setting for the third chapter in the Prince of Persia story. Expand

  1. All of the game's elements mesh, from the music to the storyline, from the puzzles to the control system. I can't find anything nasty to say about this game. Ubisoft have certainly done their homework.
  2. The nice thing about sequels to successful games is that all the rough edges are buffed out, and The Two Thrones honors its graceful hero with impeccable controls and design.
  3. About as good as we could've wished for. It maintains the Prince of Persia feel of daring-do, while improving or adding variety in some areas, and discarding mistakes like excessive combat and marketing-spun attitude.
  4. The Two Thrones provides a satisfying conclusion to the Sands of Time trilogy, with a lot of the same puzzle solving and gorgeous environments you remembered from the previous two games.
  5. The designers have created exceptionally rewarding three dimensional puzzles.
  6. 80
    Compelling visuals, competent acting, totally appropriate music, and amazing animation married to great controls make The Two Thrones a strong action game. It might not be the king of the genre, but this Prince deserves respect.
  7. So I fought, each time sitting through an unskippable 30-second scene of the fight's start and then getting killed within a minute. I did this about 70 times. My body trembling from tension and exhaustion, I kept playing not because it was any fun but simply because it was my job, and when after three hours I finally won I experienced not victorious joy but simply relief that it was over. I felt all the considerable pleasure the game had given me had been taken back.

    Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones is the best game in the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time series. One thing that stood out is that the dark prince has his own combat system a part from the regular prince. The speed kill was a very good addition to the game and the blur showed you when you should execute a speed kill. Expand
