Prince of Persia Fanatic
4 Star Review   By member edleonstgo - May 26, 2008   

Strengths: Good story and action.

Weakness: Some parts of the game are boring. Is not comparable to PS2 Prince of Persia Trilogy games.

Prince of Persia - Rival Swords is an acceptable game for PSP. Great graphics and action is all do you need to spend a lot of time playing, especially my son. A few characters make the game boring in some parts of the game. In my opinion, Prince of Persia is one of the better games story created.

A decent port of another old PS2 game. . .
4 Star Review   By member MadWolfie01 - Jan 7, 2008   

Strengths: Good mix of fighting/platforming, solid graphics, some new content

Weakness: Toned down for T-rating, occasional sound/difficulty spikes, load times

The Prince of Persia: Two Thrones hit all of the home consoles several years ago to complete the Sands of Time trilogy. It offered a compelling mix of fighting and platforming action in addition to a decent storyline. Now, you can relive the final part of the trilogy (toned down to a T-rating and dubbed "Rival Swords") on the PSP. Like the Revelations PSP port of Warrior Within, Rival Swords does a fairly solid job of bringing the prince to the small screen with most of his original adventure. You do get a handful of exclusive new sand portal levels, chariot races and a multiplayer mode. Of course, you still have to deal with occasional load times and sound issues. While Two Thrones remains a decent game on the PSP, you do make some sacrifices to have it on-the-go. Series fans may want to try this out for the new content, but most people will have just as much fun with the cheaper PS2 port. Look for it on clearance or used if you must buy as you can easily get through all of the new content in one rental period.
