Ubisoft's Babylonian hero has graced Sony's handheld before, but his PSP debut was less than memorable. Prince of Persia: Revelations was just a port of the console title Warrior Within and its only exclusives were a sluggish framerate and some annoying sound bugs. Thankfully, Ubisoft has put more effort into the official sequel. Prince of Persia: Rival Swords is not only based on an all-around better console effort, The Two Thrones, but the port to PSP arrives with genuine exclusive content and a decent multiplayer mode. Some unfortunate technical issues (not to mention inherent problems with translating a game designed for consoles to a handheld) remain, but Rival Swords is mostly a welcome addition to the PSP library and a title worth investigating."
