Prince of Persia: Rival Swords is a PSP re-release of 2005ís Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones that was featured on the PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, and PC. The game is the third part of the Sands of Time trilogy. For those new to the series, you play as the Prince of Persia (surprise?) in ancient Persia caught in a time traveling plot.
The game places as a third-person action game with a focus on acrobatic abilities. The third installment added stealth to the Princeís list of abilities in which you can silently dispatch guards. Part of the story is an enchanted sand that has caused the Prince to go schizo. Throughout the game, a darker personality will question what you are doing and at times the personality will even take over, transforming you into the Dark Prince. Once again, you will acquire sand that allows you to manipulate time (basically giving you a do over after you miss a jump or take heavy hits from an enemy).
Rival Swords on the PSP features additional content. Instead of automatically destroying sand portals in previous versions, the PSP game includes an additional minigame in which you dive into the portal to close it. The version also features a chariot race in which you navigate through obstacles and fight the Vizierís men. Ubisoft also gave the PSP version multiplayer game play in a mode to race through levels against your friends.
