"Uneven but entertaining trilogy"
4 stars"

All three games share lush environments filled with entertaining jump-‘n’-climb puzzles. The first two games have separate stories, which the third game tries to tie together with partial success. Basically, “Sands of Time” was tremendously influential and beloved; “Warrior Within” tried to cash in on its success; and “Two Thrones” tried to repair the damage.

“Sands of Time”: very stylish, with the emphasis firmly on a charming story. Excellent soundtrack. A story-based game, framed around puzzles, and broken up by occasional and very graceful combat intended more as a diversion than as a challenge.

“Warrior Within”: an action game, framed around combat challenges broken up by occasional puzzles. The combat is still fairly graceful, but with the emphasis firmly on bad-ass combo moves achieved by random button-mashing. Story? What story? The stuff about exploring the same environment in two times is pretty neat in principle, but leads to a lot of running backwards and forwards before you work out where to go and in which time.

“Two Thrones”: somewhere in between the two extremes; adds the option of using stealth to take enemies by surprise, but combat has now lost all its grace and stylishness. (And why is the Prince wearing so much mascara?) The game relies solely on the environments for its looks.

All three games suffer from consoleitis, the first game mildly (save-points; you are required to exit to the main menu in order to quit), the other two very badly (combat by random button mashing; unskippable animations at every opportunity; loading screens take as long as the animation does, not as long as the actual loading).

"Pretty damn good adventure games."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Even though these games are a few years old now, the environments are still stunning. Together they contain hours of running, exploring, climbing. They also tell a very compelling story, something that most games lack these days.

"Excellent trilogy, disappointing packaging."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

OK, the games themselves are now quite dated. But nevertheless, they are still very fun to play and the combination between puzzle-solving and combat seems to be quite well balanced for most of the time. More puzzle solving then God of War for example, but also more child-friendly. Gameplay is fun, with different elements of aerobatics and free-running incorporated quite well. The games will also run on many set-ups, being a bit older, but as with many older games, if you have a decent rig, dial up all the graphics settings and it doesn't look too bad. The story is intriguing and I am looking forward to playing the second two having played only the first before now. It will also be a good lead-up to the forthcoming release of the new Prince of Persia. Two small complaints though. At times, they do feel slightly like ported games(which they are) and camera angles get a bit funky because of this. The other minor complaint is with the packaging. While the picture might lead you to believe you get one big case with the three games inside in their plastic boxes alas, this is incorrect. You get one box with three paper CD slip-cases(you know, those ones you thought died after Windows 95) and a small piece of paper with the System Requirements. Lovely. No artwork, no manuals. Gutted, guess you'll have to Google it?

"I wish I didn't have to work!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I watched the movie, which, while vaguely disappointing, made me want to play the games, and I have not been disappointed.

Filled with puzzles, traps, swordplay and a bucket-load of sarcastic humour, I've found POP to be both challenging and entertaining.

The story is narrated by the Prince, and as in the movie, he is very English-sounding. His sarcastic comments as he makes his way through the perils of the gargantuan palace make for a bit of light entertainment while you're trying to figure out where to go next.

The puzzles are a bit of mental exercise – figuring out which one of your Parkour skills to use and where: hanging from ledges, running up walls, jumping, dodging etc are all required to get around safely.

The traps are pretty brutal: saw blades, spiky poles, spike pits, falling stalactites…and just plain falling, will cause serious harm, and often death. The plus side is that the gore level is pretty much non-existent. Just a bit of blood splatter…

Having to control both the action and the camera angle at the same makes the sword fights one of the more frustrating aspects of the game. But it's fun to watch the Prince use his Parkour in interesting ways.

Graphics: they're not bad. Not exactly 5-star, but certainly better than some other recent releases. Be warned though, you need to make sure your PC meets the specs, my average video card means the video sequences skip fairly often, meaning I miss stuff.

Probably the biggest downfall of the game is the need to use both mouse and keyboard at the same time. I would love to put this on my laptop, but I don't see it working without having a proper mouse, rather than the touch pad.

I would probably rate this as a fairly easy game – on par with the Final Fantasy series, but with less mindless running around. I have only played Sands of Time so far, but I would say that by itself, it would take maybe a solid week of play to reach the end.

Awsome games great story, only bad thing is the conotrols. I find that on the pc the controls are frustrating and a lot harder to use fluently while in combat but apart from that great set!!

Description

This cool pack contains:
  • Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
  • Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
  • Prince of Persia: Two Thrones
The Sands of Time

In medieval Persia, Earth's mightiest and most mysterious kingdom, a king and his son defeat the powerful Maharajah, looting his palace of priceless treasure, including an extravagant hourglass and a mysterious dagger. What the Prince does not realize is that these two objects can turn their possessor into an immortal god, and give him control over time itself. Tricked by a dying Vizier bent on harnessing this terrible magic for himself, the Prince releases the Sands of Time, destroying a kingdom and turning its populace into ferocious demons. Now, it is up to the young Prince of Persia to call upon every resource and ounce of courage he possesses to save his kingdom and redeem his fatal mistake. Warrior Within: The Old Man said to the Prince, "Your fate has been written. You will die." Enter the dark underworld of Prince of Persia 2, the sword-slashing sequel to the critically acclaimed Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Hunted by Dahaka, an immortal incarnation of Fate seeking divine retribution, the Prince embarks upon a path of both carnage and mystery to defy his preordained death. His journey leads to the infernal core of a cursed island stronghold harboring mankind's greatest fears. Only through grim resolve, bitter defiance and the mastery of deadly new combat arts can the Prince rise to a new level of warriorship - and emerge from this ultimate trial with his life.
