I think this is a fun, long lasting game, however, I think there are some issues with it that make it only good, instead of great. First, the camera angle switching in the middle of a movement could be better. I also think the controls are a bit lacking, in that the prince doesn't always go the direction you are pushing. Gets very frustrating at times. Some camera angles don't allow you to see the enemy (such as while wall running). Other than these glitches, the game has a good story, good music, and is ultimately fun, so I would recommend a playthrough.
I loved this game. It has everything that the first one did. Now the combat is even better. There are many combos, even more athletic abilities and sand attacks. In this game the Prince is darker. To bad there is no one to help him like the first one. The game is beautiful! You can use secondary weaponds. It also has a good story too. The only real probles is there is no 2 player modes, it can be hard to find the next area, and you have to redo some areas. Even with all those probles it is my favoret game.
