    Once again, it exemplifies the very definition of a boundary-pushing video game.
  2. As promised, the battle system has been much improved, and the game looks absolutely stunning. [Feb 2005, p.111]
  3. The acrobatics alone make Warrior Within a must-buy. Rounded out with superb character design and vast Myst-like landscapes, this Prince is another winner.
  4. But fans of the last game will be glad to know that the levels, traps, and puzzles are once again masterpieces of design. [Jan 2005, p.126]
  5. Builds on the weaknesses of its predecessor, but at the same time falls short of its strengths. All in all, this is a great title that offers something entirely new to a series that didn't really need it.
  6. The demanding learning curve is absolutely perfect...An essential purchase for patient gamers everywhere.
  7. The tone of the game has gone from an Arabian Nights fantasy to something akin to a Marilyn Manson music video. In dark and grimy settings, the once gallant prince curses and jeers as he swings his sword at demons whose decapitations are lovingly shown in slow motion to a soundtrack of screeching guitars.

    There are improvements in Prince of Persia: Warrior Within but the one improvement that really stood out is combat system in the game because there are more moves in the game. Expand
