    It's the same great game from late 2005, but it has certainly aged. The graphics, while solid, don't look feature that "new look", and though the controls are fun, it really doesn't add enough to justify a purchase unless your parents are the "No M games until your older" type. Buy the game if that's the reason, because you really missed out on a spectacular adventure.

    If you haven't played "The Two Thrones", Rival Swords is definitely worth a look. [May 2007, p.84]

    Rival Swords is the same game as "The Two Thrones" with added Wii controls that sometimes better the experience and sometimes worsen it, but if I had to choose, I'd take a traditional control setup to the new gesture system.
  3. Rival Swords is much the same game as "Two Thrones," which means it's still good, but it's nearly a year and a half late to the show.
