PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE TWO THRONES completes a trilogy that began with the fabulous Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time in 2003. The game formula -- lots of acrobatic feats and puzzle-solving in huge, beautiful environments -- was roughed up a bit for the grittier second installment, The Warrior Within. The Two Thrones mixes elements of both games, creating a more complicated and compelling protagonist. The death-defying gymnastics remain easy to control; The Prince also uses the more-complicated combat system introduced in the second game.

The Two Thrones is definitely a violent game, but it succeeds in mixing the best parts of the first two games. Mature teens and adults fans are sure to love it, while younger teens may be better off sticking with the T-rated first game.
