The graphics like the last PoP game was
great, PoP2 has improved on that making it one of the best graphics
game about. Lots of detail has going into it again like water,
light in effects, dust from very old walls.
The Sound is great and the music is excellent and interesting
playing asian-persia music mixed with a bit horror feel of rock
to it which makes fights more fun and amazing.
The controls are perfect and the use of powers and combos are
easy to use, those that have not played SoT may take a little
time to get used to it.
You go thought the game doing puzzles from time-traveling
past to present, getting in to some boss battles and been chased
by the Dahaka. The areas are massive and you have to work your
way up, down, around to get to doors, switches or whatever by
wall running, climbing, swinging and many more of the acrobatic
moves that the prince can do.
In between these massive puzzle room there
are different enemies which you fight. The fighting has been improved
allot from the last game where as you could do a few move of walls
and with your main weapon and using the dagger for kills, where
as in this there tons of move you can do which Ubi Soft call it
Free Form Fighting. You can pick up weapons of dead enemies or
do a steal kill and use it for lots of different combos. Plus
there are moves which you can do from grabs or running up and
over a enemies like throwing your second weapon, slicing heads
or bodies in half and much more. Where as in SOT you had to do
the final kill with a special dagger, you can use any weapon now
as you have the power in a emblem in your armor.
The powers are all most the same as SoT,
from slow-mo(used for fasted moving/timed traps and can be used
for fighting too) reverse-time (used for when you die from traps
or in fighting) slow-mo2(only for attacking, time moves slow but
you can do lighting attack moves) then there a Rage attack(used
for hurting several enemies at ones) plus 2 more higher levels
of that for more damage.
Gameplay has more bigger and better puzzles, lots of moves plus
lots of different 2nd weapons to find in classes of daggers, swords,
axes, maces and 5 special hidden weapons and the main weapons
of course which you get as you progress. Boss battles add to gameplay
Replay value is very high with a second ending to get, plus all
the weapons and chests to find with artwork of enemies and environments.
