Best Prince of Persia Games

The Top Ten
1 Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

Warrior Within has the best environments, best terrains, and puzzles to go through them, best battles, most smooth fighting experience provided by best combos, and best alternative ending. The story totally binds you, pretty much in dark with a demon you have to run against, can't fight it, a strange empress, a black character throwing things at you which is finally revealed to be? Spoiler here.

It's best, and if you reach the alternate ending, the storyline turns out to be awesome.

My first 3D PoP game (I played the original too)! Much better and satisfying gameplay than PoP: Sands of Time, darker storyline with cool background music and challenging puzzles.

PoP: TT was good but somehow easier and less challenging than PoP: WW although it had some nice additions.

PoP: 2008 was something refreshing and different but not for everyone. Very good game on its own.

PoP: FG, now I haven't really played much of this game, watched it on Youtube but I already see that this one too isn't much of a challenge. It looks beautiful and the story is fine but it's missing something...

2 Prince of Persia The Two Thrones

This is a brilliant game with both a compelling story and gameplay. The gameplay is much more refined, adding the Speed Kill and the Dark Prince sections. The new enemies and bosses just add more and more to the game. The soundtrack gave me literal shivers. I could feel my heart racing when I was at the Towers (sections before the Vizier Boss). The bosses were also quite unique, and the Vizier Boss was an absolute blast.

Now, the story - it is brilliant! I loved it. The characters were so great, and I just loved the heck out of the conversations between the Dark Prince and the Prince. This game continues directly from POP WW, having the Prince return to his hometown, Babylon. Kaileena gets kidnapped, and the Prince tries to find her until the Vizier stabs himself with a dagger and becomes immortal. He transforms from a human to a... whatever the hell that is? It's like a demonic, golden, human-sized butterfly of death. Long story short, you travel through the dangers of the sand monsters, meeting Farah, and then killing the Vizier.

Overall, this is a great game with a great story and gameplay. It is what I believe to be the best POP game and the best game Ubisoft has released to this day.

3 Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

This is an immortal masterpiece, the only Prince of Persia game genuinely artistic. Other PoP games are good, but commercial rather than artistic. The Sands of Time is the only one that mixes an original argument, fantastic gameplay, and a convincing love story.

Warrior Within can have better combat, but the story lacks strength and originality. As a consequence, Warrior Within relied too much on the graphics and will look too old in 10 years. The Sands of Time is immortal, since it does not depend on the graphics but the story.

4 Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

This game brought action-parkour to a new level! Though there were annoying bugs at places where you don't want them to be, like The Baths, The Observatory, and the gates to The Final Climb, the game is just awesome. The graphics and interface were amazing, while the interaction with elements like time, freezing water, and the add-on powers like the whirlwind, ice blast, flame trail, and the stone armor were more than brilliant.

Ratash, the antagonist, was a great villain challenging the Vizier and the Dahaka. His chase was one of the most awaited parts of the game. Razia was a great sidekick for the Prince, especially after becoming the Sword of Djinn. Love the game!

5 Prince of Persia (2008)

Prince of Persia (2008) is one of the best games I have ever played. It is a game that focuses heavily on the story and the world, both of which are brilliantly executed. When I reached the end, and the full meaning of the story hit me, I was blown away. It is beautiful, but it is a sad, harsh beauty, and really makes the player think about what it means.

A lot of care has been taken in creating these characters, and the way their relationship develops is great because it is simple. This really is a game that everyone should play once in their life, and I hope that we can see more like this in future years.

6 Prince of Persia: Rival Swords

I have given my vote to both Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones and Prince of Persia: Rival Swords as both I played are similar. Since mostly I have played 'The Two Thrones', but still, I thought both seem to be the same, so thought of giving my contribution to both the games.

7 Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame

Pretty poor graphics, but an excellent game! I can say this is just the best Prince of Persia ever made. Great history, great characters, great maps. This game is one of the best EVER MADE. Who didn't play this game, just does not know anything about games!

It's short but intense. I love the fighting sequences with temple guards - much improved from the 1989 ones. The only thing that was frustrating was laggy jumps sometimes, but maybe it depended on my version of the game.

I think that it is the best game, and it is my favorite game. I like it.

8 Prince of Persia (1989)

How is this game so low on the list? It's clearly a masterpiece. It deserves at the very least to be in the top 5. Awesome graphics and animation for the time, simple but challenging gameplay, and a joy to play.

I think this PoP has what others lack, especially the music and how neat and natural/real it is.

9 Prince of Persia 3D

It is the best PoP game ever. It had the original prince, which was way better than the new one. As we all know, old is gold. It had great graphics at that time. Old games are better than new ones. PoP 1989 is also better than Warrior Within.

This was the first game I ever played. I loved it when I was a kid. It's truly the hallmark of all the rest of the series.

I wish they would release the same game with modern graphics and background loading.
