Prince of Persia The Two Thrones

I am currently renting this game for the Xbox from Gamefly and so far I am very impressed. The graphics and sound are very well done and the gameplay is what you'd expect from the series. There are puzzles to solve and traps to avoid. One cool addition is the ability to do a quick kill. This is very much like a stealth kill. You have to be unseen to attempt one and when you start the quick kill you need to hit the X button when your weapon flashes blue. You only have a small amount of time to hit the button. if you are successful you can kill an enemy in one or two hits. If you fail you'll have to fight the enemy the old fashioned hack and slash way. The quick kill comes in handy when you are low on health and want to avoid letting your enemies get a hit in on you. Also the Dagger of Time is back in this game. Now you can rewind time again like you were able to do in The Sands of Time. I have not been able to play as the dark prince yet but I feel i am close to being able to play as him. Something else pretty interesting is the voice of the prince is voiced by Yuri Lowenthal who voiced him in the Sands of Time and the voice of the dark prince is done by Robin Atkin Downes who voiced the prince in Warrior Within. Just something a little interesting since the prince is a much darker character in Warrior Within than he was in The Sands of Time. Anyway I am very much enjoying The Two Thrones and it is definitely worth a rental.
