The game starts with you returning to your home only to find if underseige and filled with more thugs then you can shake a stick at.

Another new feature is the " Speed Kill" which, with a couple of well timed button presses, will easily take care of any enemy. Two thrones keeps with the same sick aerobatic formula as the other two which makes it as fun to watch as it is to play. So all in all, two thrones makes for a thrilling finale and should be played by any fan of the prince of persia series.
