Entertaining but flawed
on 4 May 2009
I found playing the Two Thrones a mixed experience.
The storyline is entertaining enough to make me want to find out what happens in the end. The "speed kill" move is cool, and the graphics are good. The graphics are excellent, particularly the scary looking jawless boss. It's satisfying when you manage a particularly complicated set of moves. I'm showing my age a bit, but I also particularly liked the way some features from the original PoP game appear in the tower, like the doors (sadly, no skeleton baddy!).
Having said that, annoyances made me stop playing for days at a time. The save and restart points are too far apart. This, coupled need to do all the moves perfectly, means that you have to repeat long sections over and over again. Particularly frustrating sections are the sections with the chariot race followed immediately by a boss fight, and the really long Grand Vizier battle at the end; I'm close to giving up on it!
Overall, I thought WW was more fun, but 2T is a bit more atmospheric. It is a good game, but a bit more thought about the save points would have made it much more enjoyable.
Something that's puzzled me about both 2T and WW is that the Prince can run up and along walls, do massive leaps, somersaults, etc etc, but if a chair or barrel is in his way he can't get by it without having to smash it up!
