The fanbase was shocked when UbiSoft announced that the third part "Prince of Persia - The Two Thrones" had to be censored for its European release. Only the American version was released uncensored. At least this goes for the US first editions which are the US PC Version on CD-Rom (3 Discs), the US Xbox Version and the US PS2 Version. The later released US DVD-Rom version has the same censorship like the European version and most likely this applies to every worldwide DVD-Rom release of the Game too. Because the PC-Version of the Game was released within Europe on DVD-Rom right from the beginning, it seems like UbiSoft just took this European DVD-Rom version and then used it for the US Re-Release on DVD-Rom.

In the European UbiSoft's message board, all threads which talked or even slightly hinted at this topic were immediately deleted. Until this day, UbiSoft lost a lot of popularity because of this behavior.

There are not too many games where fans extensively rumored about the censorship as with this game - especially because of UbiSoft's weird behavior when it came to this topic. A few of these rumors included:

- the missing ability to cut of body parts or to split enemies vertically - slightly less blood - several female looking statues were altered (e.g. no more breasts)

After a detailed comparison we can tell you - the last 2 rumors are complete shenanigans. Enemies do not lose any less blood and the statues all look the same. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
