Prince of Persia: Warrior Within is an action adventure game and a part of the vast Prince of Persia series which includes ten titles overall. Sands of Time precede it and followed by The Two Thrones


All the big titles in the series feature pretty much the same mechanics: 3D platforming with a heavy focus on the fighting elements and parkour. The game is the first in the group to have a non-linear structure with the protagonist returning to the previously visited areas and opening hidden paths with the new tools acquired along the way.
The fighting system presents wielding two weapons at a time with the latter being divided into two main categories: melee — primary weapons and throwable — secondary ones.


The events depicted in the game take place seven years after the previous game in the series — The Sands of Time. The narrative centers around the antagonism of the protagonist of The Prince and Dahaka — the mystical beast, hunting him because he released the Sands of Time in the previous installment.
The game features two endings: a canonical "good" one the storyline of which is transferred in the next chapter of The Prince's journey and the "bad" one. The difference lies in the Water Sword achievable through gathering all the collectibles for upgrading the life meter.

ABSOLUTELY NOT recommended ... Simply the bigget piece oh♥♥♥♥♥♥I've ever bought on Steam ! Totally unplayable ! I have never seen a game with so much bugs ! Tried 10 times and 10 crashes on different moment during the tutorial fight / intro scene. Even after having fixed the bug of the cutscene CINE0102.bik (steam file bugged) , I keep having other crashes on "loading" page after this cutscene. Money lost & no playable game! DO NOT BUY IT , even when on sale.

Very good Game with good Atmospheres and super Soundtrack that you want to hear again. In Addition, it has a good Level Of difficulty, which does rise from the half of the Game. There are also good Boss Battles that everyone has a new tactic to defeat Him. In addition, you can unlock several Ends, but you have to do certain Tasks in the Game. You have to have collected all Life Upgrades to trigger a different Ending. Despite its Age, you can't say anything to the Graph, as I Think it has been well preserved. I give the Game a good 10/10.

Better than it's predecessor in every way, after only a couple hours of gameplay this feels like the ultimate Prince of Persia in 3D. Combat finally feels good and is well integrated with the landscape (You can use traps to dispose of enemies like in the original 2D game). The darker gothic feel also suits the more oppressive mood with tougher foes and traps. Also the time manipulation aspect is now usefull for puzzles and the slow-mo actually allows you to move faster during combat. There's a plethora of weapons each with it's own stats (and not only stronger swords like in the previous game) that allow you to tackle different enemies in different ways (you can even throw weapons now and decapitate foes). Get ready to unleash your warrior within in this island of death!

Beautiful classic With one of the coolest Intros of gaming history. The Story is Exciting and gripping to the End. Gameplay is also Fun and quite solid, although there are also a few monotonous Thirst Stretches. All in all, Heut Is still a beautiful Game, with a good Soundtrack and generally good Sound Backdrop. Minus Point, however, is for the Waste Of Shadee. The Lady is mega badass! With awesome design and unfortunately becomes absolutely wasted, there could have been a lot more in it!!! Otherwise, the Game crashed a few times while Loading, Sound dropouts gabs at congate videos and Opponents are often dripped in. These then stood around motionless but were not vulnerable. The Control Menu is also unspeakably bad. Just proving the Buttons on the Controller is already a small Challenge. How someone could program that intentionally remains a Mystery. Ubisoft's usual incompetent halt.
