Macworld's Game Room has published a new review of Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones for Mac. The game features a third-person perspective, special combat moves, and the time bending abilities fans of the series have come to expect. The Game Room gave Two Thrones a score of 3.5 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

The Two Thrones also relies on the idea of "speed kills," a way to quickly dispatch enemies by sneaking up on them and entering a small mini-game where you need to time your button clicks with the glint of the knife. Think of it as "Simon Says stab now." Both the light and Dark Prince have different attacks and speed kills, but successfully nailing the Dark Prince's speed kills is by far one of the most satisfying elements of the game. You can hang from a rope and strangle an enemy with his chain-whip or sneak closer and do it up close. Since most of the enemies are sand monsters, there is surprisingly little blood.

One of the biggest drawbacks of The Two Thrones is the camera system. The game gives you buttons to center the camera and enable first-person perspective, but these are clumsy tools for navigating wide-open temples with dozens of obstacles. Particularly when jumping from platform to platform, the camera seemingly decides to invert its perspective at will. The stealth combat, which is normally one of the game's strengths, becomes difficult because the camera will choose an angle where you can't see the patrolling guard.
