How to play Prince of Persia on the Wii

By Spencer . December 22, 2006 . 6:53am


Ubisoft is bringing over Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones to the Wii under a new name, Prince of Persia: Rival Swords. Besides having some of the new chariot racing levels Rival Swords adds in Wii control. It looks like from these pictures you can throw the Daggertail by shaking the nunchuck and then pressing the Z button. Seems smart, but what about the free form combat system that the new Prince of Persia games are famous for? Are moves going to be mapped to different actions or are they going to be done just by swinging the remote rapidly? That’s not quite clear yet. Prince of Persia is known for having tight controls so I’m skeptical that a direct translation of the console game is the best way to handle the series. At the very least we can hope for realistic chariot whipping movements, that ought to make the racing levels fun.

    Man, I came home for Christmas and played on my brother’s Wii- he had stood in line 2 different times for hours in the damp and cold NY weather and was one person short each time of getting it, then finally 3rd time after about 2 weeks that it had been out he got one. He is in college, I am a working man and don’t have the time ( nor the cash now) to buy one. It would be radically sweet if I can win one from you guys.
    Okay now for the thought provoking, intelligent comment to earn me a chance at the Wii. Only in America would people of all ages camp out in tents, sleeping bags with heaters and thermos full of coffee for a Wii or an Elmo, not knowing if there are enough for all standing in line. Have our senses been corrupted ? Are we a materialistic nation? Would we stand in line for hours for a loaf of bread? This game Rocks!

    Maybe now we can get a dominatrix game. Seeing as how the whip function works so well.
