Prince Of Persia: The Two Thrones Reviewed

Mac|Life 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. Mac|Life gave Two Thrones a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

Instead of the original’s touchy controls, Two Thrones rewards experimentation by helping you along. The game gently guides you on huge leaps between ledges, keeping the movement fast instead of punishing you for imperfect input. The Prince scurries laterally along walls, runs straight up corners into backflips, dangles off overhangs, and otherwise keeps his feet moving. The controls gradually build until you’re comfortable vaulting off nearly anything, giving players a sense of accomplishment. ?Be warned that a gamepad with two analog-style joysticks is practically required—you won’t get far using a keyboard and mouse.

We enjoyed moving through 3D puzzles, but frequent fights add to the fluid style. Instead of just swinging swords and blocking against frequently appearing monsters, you’ll launch them off walls, deploy elaborate two-handed combination attacks, and even vault over enemies to swipe from behind. The Prince is Buster Keaton as he’s busting heads. Superpowers add a little of The Matrix, letting you occasionally slow down or rewind time. And while it’s cartoonish, Two Thrones earns its Mature rating, since this often-violent movement is its centerpiece.
