    Return to the throne

    The grand finale of Ubisoft's time-twisting Prince of Persia trilogy comes to Wii.

    When it was released for the previous generation of consoles, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones didn't get nearly the attention it deserved. The stirring conclusion to the Sands of Time saga marked a return to grace for the series after the disappointing Warrior Within and delivered a platforming masterpiece worthy of its royal heritage.

    So it's only fitting that the prince's crowing achievement get a second chance when Ubisoft brings The Two Thrones to Wii. Though the content of the adventure is identical to its GameCube counterpart, a new Wii-specific control scheme will attempt to make your journey through Babylon more tactile.

    Features
    • Play and master two distinct characters: Wield the powers and weapons of two master warriors with different combat styles, attitudes and histories
    • Battle freely through Babylon: Dominate enemies on the perilous rooftops, dodge through chaotic streets and ambush pursuers in dark underground passageways
    • Immerse yourself in a dramatic story: Experience unparalleled depth in storytelling as you fight your way through a twisting tale filled with adrenaline, tension and discovery
    • Manipulate time to surprise enemies: Execute powerful attacks against entire armies by slowing down or rewinding time, or surprise them by using some all-new Sands of Time powers
    • Experience a masterful blend of gameplay: True to the Prince of Persia franchise, the game provides a variety of action combat, agility and story-driven puzzles – all masterfully blended into a rich gaming experience

    The Prince of Persia makes his way home to Babylon, bearing with him Kaileena, the enigmatic Empress of Time, and unspeakable scars from the Island of Time. But instead of the peace he longs for, he finds his kingdom ravaged by war and Kaileena the target of a brutal plot. When she is kidnapped, the Prince tracks her to the Palace – only to see her murdered by a powerful enemy.

    Her death unleashes the Sands of Time, which strike the Prince and threaten to destroy everything he holds dear. Cast to the streets, hunted as a fugitive, the Prince soon discovers that the Sands have tainted him, too. They have given rise to a deadly Dark Prince, whose spirit gradually possesses him.

    Fit for a King

    The Prince taps into his darker side.

    Get ready for a brilliant blend of combat, agility and story-driven puzzles as the renowned series continues with dark, new twists.

    Features

    • Play and master two distinct characters
    • New stealth tactics
    • Battle through Babylon's rooftops, bustling streets and underground passageways
    • Use your Sands of Time powers and attack entire armies by slowing down or rewinding time

    The Prince of Persia, a seasoned warrior, returns from the Island of Time to Babylon with his love Kaileena. Instead of the peace that he longs for, he finds his homeland ravaged by war and the kingdom turned against him. After the Prince is captured, cast to the streets and hunted as a fugitive, Kaileena has no choice but to sacrifice herself and unleash the Sands of Time in order to save him. The Prince soon discovers that past battles have given rise to a deadly Dark Prince, whose spirit gradually possesses him.

    The Two Thrones ties up the narrative threads of the two previous POP console titles (Sands of Time and Warrior Within) to deliver an emotional wallop that's amplified by stunning cinematics and classical score. Everything that made Warrior Within less magical (rock music, anachronistic one-liners) is gone. Not quite as in-your-face as Warrior Within, The Two Thrones is still pretty dark in tone.

    In addition to the traditional action-platforming elements, ambush tactics are incorporated into The Two Thrones. But unlike your typical stealth game, you don't have to creep up on your foes slowly. Instead, you can race along walls and platforms to strike with a simple button combination before your helpless victim realizes something's amiss. The button-combo battle system from Warrior Within is alive and well in this sequel, but the speed kills are more effective and, frankly, more satisfying.

    The Prince occasionally transforms into the Dark Prince, a malicious alter-ego armed with a dagger-tailed chain. Your brief stints as the Dark Prince feel much different from the rest of the game, introducing a sense of violent urgency as you hack and slash through foes, ripping the sands from their bodies to replenish your health meter.

    To further spice up the action, The Two Thrones offers a number of boss battles that are far more imaginative than those of its predecessors. Your opponents in each of these battles are a sight to behold, and determining how to bring them down requires some thought.

    The stunning acrobatics that made Sands of Time such a breakthrough are here in full force. Swinging from poles, leaping over obstacles and running along walls makes for an amazing -- Dare we say, poetic? -- gaming experience.

    Bottom Line

    The Prince brings you gaming at its finest. Always challenging, but seldom frustrating.
