    The game is awesome, the only complaint i have is that it's hard as hell, maybe its just cause im not too coordinated.

    No doubt this is the best game ive ever owned and hopefully they shall continue making prince of persia games number one was awsome but mnot even close to as brilliant and if you gave it an 8 or lower id have to recall that you must have been in mentle class before.

    This is just simply a master piece just like the first game. If you gave this game an 8 or lower you don't know anything about videogames. SOME people say it is too much of the same in every level, they are crazy don't listen to them every single level brings something new and interesting to the game. The combat system is awesome the darker turn that the game took fits the This is just simply a master piece just like the first game.

I hate giving a game a perfect 10 but this game earned it. In conclusion I will always remember the prince of persia collection as the best games ever made. Expand

    This game has gone in a slightly diffrent direction by improving the plotline and charicter and also they have put more deadly and powerful moves that would be more realistec. also i am glad that they pushed up the age limit rating so they can fit more things into it.

    This game quite simply a masterpiece. The fighting has improved (as ubi promised); the visuals and sounds are great! The environements are gorgeous and the puzzles are quite unique. Although the story had potential, I couldn't help but feel that it was forced down on the players. There wasn't very much character devlopement going on and they needed some polishing.

But the real problem here were the GLITCHES! Boy were they ever frustrating. They were both in-game and in-cut-scenes! Well, overall; this game is awe-inspiring and stands as an amazing sequel to the Sands of Time. Expand

    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.

  1. 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.

    You get the impression that "The Sands of Time" was just a warm-up for the main event, a game that's familiar at first but soon reveals a level of imagination beyond that of the original, and displays as little room for error as one of the Prince's most daring acrobatic leaps.

    If you loved the original but found it too easy, then give The Prince of Persia: Warrior Within a go, as it's sure to please. If you loved "Ninja Gaiden" you'll definitely like this.
