Prince of Persia: Rival Swords is the second (after Prince of Persia: Revelations) action game about the titular Prince initially prepared exclusively for PlayStation Portable. While the other game was based on Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, released on stationary platforms, this new production is based on Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones.
The main hero actually causes the creation of the Dark Prince from the Sands of Time. You can control the two unique characters with different fighting styles, appearance, etc. Obviously, you can traverse oriental environment (specifically, the region of Babylon), jumping between rooftops, running through narrow streets of the city, and exploring dark dungeons. There are also levels in which you are driving a chariot and fighting enemies at the same time. Moreover, the game features simple logic puzzles perfectly fit into gameplay.
Thanks to wireless Wi-Fi connection one can also enjoy the multiplayer mode, in which two players assume the roles of the two protagonists and compete for the best time score. For example, if one player activates a switch in his level, the rival has to face a new trap or obstacle.
