    This is easily the better sequel, a firm improvement on "Warrior Within." So why the long face? For the simple and saddest reason of all: ennui. [Christmas 2005, p.100]
  2. Two Thrones just lacks that special spark. Thus it is difficult to think about Two Thrones without feeling regret.
  3. We're glad to see Ubisoft spare their Prince from becoming a pauper by ditching the dreary aesthetic, but the minor improvements along with too many familiar gripes keep this game from being king.
  4. 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.

    Having been a fan of the POP franchise for the longest of times, playing the old games and unlocking everything there was with The Sands of Having been a fan of the POP franchise for the longest of times, playing the old games and unlocking everything there was with The Sands of Time, and Warrior Within, this game just satisfied me on all fronts and put a nice warm feeling in my stomach as I watched the end movie play. Wonderfully done, adding in enough of the two previous games to make The Two Thrones triumph. The 3rd installement brings the magnificant unique touch of POP, and as always, delivers hard on the most important aspect of a game in my eyes, gameplay. From whipping your daggertail round and round as the dark prince, to using speed-kills to defeat enemies as the noble prince, it just doesn't get old. Also did I mention the manic and wildy entertaining chariot races? Or the suberb job on the frantic boss fights? There is just too much to go over. Beautifully made enivorments are made even better in The Two Thrones. The story also fits the game and it feels as though it has purpose, not just some lame tale made to make a trilogy, thus making some measily money. Ubisoft really paid attention to what needed to be done and took time and care with the game, and it all shows as a final product. I have gone only over a small portion of this timeless epic. Be sure of it. If you enjoyed the last two, or have always enjoyed POP, it would hands down be a slap in the face, a crime better yet, to not play this game. Impressive Ubisoft, very impressive.
