    Any way you slice it, three games of this caliber all bundled together on one disc are definitely worth the price of entry.

    If you've never played the PS2 Prince of Persia trilogy before, this is the perfect opportunity to do so. If you have, play it again; reliving the experience in HD is a glorious reminder of just what great games these are.

    Even if you have played through them already, the enhanced visuals and nostalgia are reason enough to take the journey back through these classic platformers.

    If you were hoping for a remastering that goes beyond a hi-def polygon upgrade and new 3D features, you're out of luck. If the minimal lick of paint isn't an issue though, you could do far worse with your money, whether you're new to the trilogy or simply clamouring to revisit Prince of Persia's heyday.

    An enjoyable history lesson that survives the test of time.

    An excellent history lesson for anyone who's finished AC Brotherhood. [Jan 2011, p.88]

    The Prince of Persia Trilogy is a great package, primarily due to the source material. Ubisoft has done little to improve the included titles for the new generation but thankfully they were as good as they were in their original forms that their overall quality still shines through. Whether or not you are a fan of the series, you will enjoy three excellent games brought together in this discounted package.

It had everything: smooth and clever platforming/puzzles, beautiful graphics, incredible soundtrack and unforgettable story. The characters, Farah and the prince, are some of the best i'v seen in videogames and the relashionship that grows between them during the game is one of a kind.so,Is it good today as it was back then? not entirely, but some things about it are timeless because it's a classic game. The other two games are, arguably, not as good as the first because they don't have the same atmosphere and innovation(The combat has improved though). none the less, these 2 games hold their own because the gameplay is better then ever and the story isn't half bad either. The setting and background of the games are also unique and add much to the atmoshpere. I look at the first game as a work of art and the other two as ''good enough'' sequals but looking at this trilogy as a whole it's almost perfect because you really can't find a better hybrid of action, platforming, puzzles and story. I suppose I love this trilogy more then others because I remember how it stood out against other series of games back then, attleast for me, and had me excited whenever a new game was coming out. If you don't mind the outdated graphics and love adventure games this trilogy is your best bet. If you have allready played the first game to the very end then, well, I guess you can just call me..... ''Kakolukia'' (and those who know will understand) ;) Expand

They were ugly, clunky and frustrating back in the PS2I don't know where all the hype about these 3 games come from. I honestly don't know. They were ugly, clunky and frustrating back in the PS2 games and nothing of this has changed on this new PS3 port. It is a nice opportunity to play the games - specially with the HD enhancement - which indeed gives a smooth quality for the games (specially the 2 Thrones). But that's it. Also, you have to install these games (what?), which makes no sense at all... I like to have this trilogy and give it a spin once and a while. And that's it. If you didn´t like these games back then, you are NOT going to like them now. Pick up the Tomb Raider trilogy, instead. It is a much better choice. Expand

It's one of those game I thought would be better left in the past as a good memory. I didn't want to lose that nostalgia. I was wrong. It's very fun to replay through the HD levels and it stood the test of time fairly well. I was never a huge fan of the 2nd installment as it felt to me like a hype sensation type of game but at the same time it still offers the same type of gameplay you've come to know and love. Expand

    The three games are great : Sands of Time is a milestone of videogaming, and both Warrior Within and Two Thrones build on this awesome gameplay, mixing platform, puzzles and a little of fight, to deliver similar experiences. There's no talk about the quality of this games, and having the three in one purchase makes the Prince of Persia Trilogy an affordable title that will occupy you for 35 hours more or less.

    But if you already played this game, this "HD" edition offers very small additional value, the 3D is horrible, the HD effect non visible, the trophies made in a lazy way (finish the game in the higher difficulty, doesn't unlock the trophies for the lower difficulties), really nothing "new" here and therefore no interest for previous Prince of Persia fans.

I don't know if this is because I have an old fat system, but it freezes every ten minutes or so. What I have played is a bit underwhelming as well. It's not especially HD and feels rather clunky. Why did Ubisoft put out such a lackluster products for such great games? What a shame! I'm returning this and suggest no one buy it until a patch comes out! Expand
