MY SISTER AND I recently purchased the HD remake of the "POP Trilogy"; playing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time really got me thinking about an issue that's been brought up constantly in regards to this particular game. The Combat/Battle Mechanics. For all the praise SOT has gotten, the biggest problem everyone appeared to have with it was the combat. And as two people who've never really thought to complain or take issue with it (either because we don't know any better or just plain never saw it as a problem), it strikes us as, well, weird.

For the literal ten years we've played this game, we've experienced no problems with the fighting mechanics like we've had with the platforming (i.e., The Prince responding at the last second and missing the ledge/pole and falling to his death when we press, tap, "caress" or mash the x button). He always responded accordingly, did what we wanted and typically never did anything stupid unless it was a error made on our part. It's probably one of our favorite aspects of the game despite acknowledging that the combat system does indeed improve tremendously in games like The Two Thrones or Forgotten Sands. but why exactly is/was it awful to everyone else?

March 22nd is going to be a big day for Ubisoft, on that day they will debut not 1 but 2 different boxed trilogies. On the one hand they will release Prince of Persia Trilogy HD. Now re-mastered in High Definition are three classic Prince Of Persia titles, exclusively for the PS3. Digitally enhanced HD and 3D graphics heighten the experience of adventure and improve overall gameplay. Included are Prince of Persia: The Sands Of Time, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones all in HD.

Unsurprisingly, Ubisoft announced today that two new HD collections are in the works. The Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia series will each see a trilogy of its games re-released in high definition for the PlayStation 3. Both were rumored last year after retail listings popped up, with Ubisoft later confirming them.

Splinter Cell Classic Trilogy HD will include the original Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory all on one Blu-ray disc or as a download from the PlayStation Store. The 'classic' part of the title is most likely a clarification that it includes the first three games in the series rather than a suggestion that a second HD collection could be in the works. Three more Splinter Cell games have been released since Chaos Theory, but one (Conviction) was an exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PC and another (Essentials) was only for the PSP.
