    Many folks view this title as the highpoint of the POP franchise- but I found it a step down from Warrior Within in many ways. The basic puzzle platforming was still there- but gone was the time travel motif that, IMHO, was the best part of the earlier game.

    Some specific gripes: - I *hated* the voice acting in this game- and particularly the writing for the voice acting. The

    Overall an enjoyable game, although it is really a glorified console game. Graphics are a tad dated on the one hand, but on the other hand it makes for a game that can be ran well, unlike FEAR or Doom 3. The controls are difficult to get used to. I wished that the camera angle was fixed to following behind the character and free look was activated by a keyboard button.

I wished that the camera angle was fixed to following behind the character and free look was activated by a keyboard button. It is difficult get your bearings when facing off with multiple foes because of the always-on freelook, but the attack moves and combos are great, a lot of variety. The save system is the biggest flaw. You can only save every so often at certain points. There should be a quicksave feature, because some of the acrobatic/climbing/jumping maneuvers are difficult and have to be rehearsed until you get the hang of it, and if you fall to your death, you are sent back a bit, and have to repeat the same maneuvers which you had done previously. Fantastic music, I actually keep the volume for the in-game music turned up, unlie the irritating thmuping music in Half-Life 2. Nice cut scene graphics as well. The only bug I have encoutnered is that the mouse cursor in the in-game options menu occasonally freezes, requiring a restart. Expand

    What is prince of persia, the two thrones? It's the best 3D prince of persia game. Having been developed before video games because mainstream garbage, it has decent difficulty, unlike the new prince of persia games. And it feels good to play something that isn't crap nowadays, so I try old games. It's fun if you like the genre of jumping from ledge to ledge, as in tomb raider, if you haveWhat is prince of persia, the two thrones? It's the best 3D prince of persia game.

And it feels good to play something that isn't crap nowadays, so I try old games. It's fun if you like the genre of jumping from ledge to ledge, as in tomb raider, if you have no idea what is this genre then pick up the game even more because it will be a fresh awesome experience. The combat system is the worst part of the game although it is good that you can kill enemies instantly in this prince of persia, by backstabbing them strategically. IF you fail to do that, you have to have a boring battle with them, so i guess that's incentive to get it right! The levels are creative, well done, there are some challenging puzzles, the levels are never repetitive, and yes the game is actually challenging which is very well appreciated. The graphics are outdated at this point but who cares. Although the levels aren't repetitive the basic game mechanics somewhat are, this game has the feel of good without being great. Expand

    I really like prince of Persia but after playing the first 30 minutes of two thrones I just had to right this review. First of all, the cut scenes are beautiful but then ones you start playing YOU LOOK LIKE A STICK! your arms are pencil thin and you body is huge. but probably the biggest thing is when you start playing it says "use the right analog stick to move the camera" UH last time II really like prince of Persia but after playing the first 30 minutes of two thrones I just had to right this review.

  1. Even though this series has had its bumps along the way, the end product was completely worth it.
  2. The great talents at Ubisoft have done it again with this one folks and I don't think this is the last we will hear of the Prince of Persia.
  3. The main problem I had here in Two Thrones was, amazingly and sadly enough, the environments! In a franchise that held a high standard for level design, Two Thrones features bland and drab colors that are just uninteresting in so many ways.
