The prince makes his way on the next generation consoles.
6 April 2009 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

Well not entirely true, the "Two Thrones" game for some reason was released on the Wii, and technically that prince is not in this game. However, the series has reached the newest consoles and I applaud their first effort that is rather good, though part three in the series is still the best one I have played. The story has a new guy lost in the desert searching for his donkey who has all the gold he got from a previous adventure. This character is by no means a prince, rather he is an adventurer who is about to get tangled up in a very difficult ordeal involving a princess. Well he meets a princess being pursued by men and he steps in. Which could be considered a mistake, however this leads him on a quest with the princess to revive lands in a kingdom tainted by a dark god. Once all the lands in this kingdom are healed the dark god who is threatening to escape will be imprisoned securely once more. There is more to it than that, including why the bonds holding this dark god are breaking in the first place, but if you play the game you shall learn yourself. Most of the game is the acrobatics one is used to from the last three games in this series. You do a number of climbs, jumps, and figure puzzles during this quest. The fights, while not many in number though are the highlight as they are very cinematic in nature and really fun when you hit a good combo. Do not worry about dying as I did not die the entire game. The princess sees to it your character stays alive and this may seem to make the game less challenging the thought of doing some of those lands without her make me cringe. You would be seeing a lot of game over screens that is for sure. The characters are good too as the prince is rather funny and has a better personality than the last one. You get to have some rather humorous exchanges between he and the princess. The problems in the game are just enough to make this game score an eight. One, it gets a tad repetitive when you have to go through the same area a couple of times to collect orbs. The ending is obviously setting up a sequel and is kind of irritating as you went through a whole lot to have the prince do what he does. It also just does not feel epic enough in areas as the end credits are a bit disappointing compared to part 1 and 3 from the previous games. There could have been a bit more enemies to fight as well as you kind of have to fight the same ones over and over. Still a good first effort so I hope this one does well enough so I can see how this story continues.
