A New Trilogy Comes With Only One Good Game Inside

My review for the classic Prince of Persia series:
Concept: Take all three of the games from a famed series, mix it into one, and have only one game really worth playing. Fight sand monsters, travel back in time and mess with the time line and the world to satisfy the Princes mistakes.
Graphics: I guess they were okay for a PS2 games and the games are in HD capability. Plus, constant character redisigns for the Prince and his allies.
Sound: Three different voices for the Prince and most of - if not all -of the main characters. Not only that, but very different soundtracks are heard in the games. Expect some bland music for The Sands of Time, Rock music (including Godsmack's Stand Alone) for Warrior Within, and some middle eastern like music for The Two Thrones.
Playabillity: Acrobatics work fairly well and improve as the series goes on with new added features. Combat works well enough but it's nothing special and it can get frustrating when your enemies have some unfair advantages, such as attacks you can't defend against and it deals a lot of damage. The whole time line thing in Warrior Within can get pretty confusing. The combat really gets good in The Two Thrones when they add stealth kills to the game and easier and more fair combat.
Entertainment: Revisiting a series is always fun, usually. Really, the only great game was the Two Thrones whereas the others were not anything remarkable. If you want to know the old story of the games, then play it. If you liked the whole series (for some reason) and want to play it again, then you should definetly get this one to.

I thought this would be a great game since I've heard so many people compare it to the uncharted series. If the games were in fact more like uncharted than the platform of button mashing and memorizing sequences on the controller, I think I would have enjoyed it more. The first game (sands of time) was the only one that I could fully make it through and enjoy. The other two were terrible when it came to the enemy and I felt a complete waste of time. I've heard the last one they made was more like the first, so I will give that a try
