I love them all. The Two Thrones is really underrated. A good mix between Sands Of Time and Warrior Within with hugely improved boss fights, better platforming and the Dark Prince but the ending was a bit weak.

Sands Of Time is probably my favourite but the more gory combat and switching back and forth between the past and the present in levels was awesome in Warrior Within. SOT and WW have very different aesthetics and atmospheres but I appreciated both of them. SOT feels more mystical and focused on relationships. WW is very Gothic and lonely. The Dahaka chases were fairly intense as well:

Edit: I forgot to say that POP 2008 is also way better than most people give it credit for. The Forgotten Sands is decent.

I would love for trilogy to be remade.

Personally, I'm not sure a remake would really add much to the enjoyment of those games. Their controls are perfect and they still look quite good considering their age. The HD remasters on PS3 did the job. I just want a new POP game. It's been so long. Same for Splinter Cell.

I actually remember most people hating how edgy Warrior Within was compared to the first. Never got around to playing it myself, but played the first and third ones.

Hate it when developers just sit on ips. Either make it or sell it.

Assassin's Creed is the spiritual successor to the Prince of Persia games. Ubisoft pushed out "The Forgotten Sands" in 2008 that, despite being a good game, was quickly forgotten. By then Ubisoft was fully engaged with developing the Assassin's Creed series.

I had the Forgotten Sands. Despite IGN giving that game a score higher than a 9, it remains to be a staunch example of not letting a review dictate your purchase. No matter what, you could not DIE in that game. If you jump into a hole, the girl would autmatically save you every single time.

Til this day, im still disappointed i purchased that game for $60. It's a solid 8 at best

AssCreed is very mediocre compared to PoP games. The combat is dumbed down and platforming is repetitive.
The empty open world full of "checklist" is also designed to pad out the experience.

UnSelf, sorry I meant to say that "Forgotten Sands" was released in 2010, not 2008. The 2008 Prince of Persia "reboot" of sorts was artistically beautiful and elegant but not much of a game, if it could even be called that. Absolutely no challenge whatsoever.

Loved the hell out of this game!
