2. Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones (2005)
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones concludes The Sands of Time trilogy, and thankfully it is also a great game in its own right. And while many fans were upset at how Ubisoft had turned the Prince into a cynical and arrogant character in the earlier Warrior Within game, the prince in The Two Thrones is more like his sweet self of the earlier games, but he must also fight his evil alter ego, the Dark Prince.
Because one of the gameplay novelties of this game was the possibility to switch between the normal prince and the Dark Prince, who was something of a badass in combat, and could take out several enemies at once with his new weapon, the daggertail. But the regular prince was no pushover either, as he could resort to the new stealth kills, letting him take out unaware guards in a violent fashion. The game also featured chariot races which required split-second timing and were not as much fun as the combat and platforming action, but the latter thankfully was as entertaining as ever in what is certainly one of the best entries in the Prince of Persia series to date.
