This time the Prince has to face his own fate, as his life is threatened by Dahaka, an incarnation of the unchangeable fate. The perilous journey (which is in fact an attempt to escape from death) takes the hero on an accursed island.
Most of gameplay mechanics remained unchanged – you still run and jump traversing in-game levels, avoid tricky traps, use different mechanisms, etc. The game’s atmosphere is much darker than of the previous part’s. The prince looks more mature and the locations he visits are ominous (old gardens, a graveyard of ships, a Persian boat, a huge castle, etc.).
Combat got much more emphasized than previously. Bloodthirsty monsters and enemies stand on the Prince’s way, whom you eliminate using a new Free-Form Fighting System (combines strikes into combos, you can even snatch enemy weapons from their hands). Besides, the creators modified the system of attacks over a distance – you can throw swords at enemies.
