  1. The game isn’t perfect, in-fact I would be pushed to avoid calling it a poor version, but the mere fact that I am still addicted to it, and playing it must count for something in this world.

    The gameplay is a little tricky to get used to on the PSP, but once you get adjusted, you'll find yourself getting into the game's beautiful combat quite easily.
  3. As standalone PSP games go, Revelations is still among the most enjoyable you can buy, but those technical issues don’t do any favours for a game that may already be too confusing and challenging for total newcomers.
  4. The same incredible acrobatic moves and puzzles are included with this little bundle of joy, as is the story line that continues from the "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time."
  5. The biggest problem with Prince of Persia: Revelations is that it has no longevity once you've completed the admittedly lengthy adventure through once.
  6. 60
    The PSP version unfortunately doesn't have the polish and smooth gameplay of its predecessors and is hard to recommend, even to fans of the series.
  7. 30
    People wanting a game to get their teeth into will certainly find it a challenge although many will also be tearing their hair out by the handful. The one question on many people’s lips is why port Warrior Within, of all the games in the Prince of Persia trilogy? Why not simply begin with Sands of Time and start at the beginning.

    A superb game when it was called Prince of Persia: Warrior Within on PS2 has been made even better with 20 all new, extremely engaging levels that will be a must for die-hard PoP fans. For those who never played the PS2 game, an absolute MUST purchase. Expand

    Finally a reason to play my PSP! I haven't played it since Coded Arms came out (which I didn't play for very long because it pretty much sucked). I have not beat this game yet but it plays well and looks pretty good. They did the best job with the camera they possibly could. If you mute the voice overs in your option screen you will enjoy this game about 100% better (the Prince constantly whines "I don't have time for this" during battles which is painfully annoying). Also the soundtrack is buggy (sometimes it doesn't play at all), which isn't a bad thing because it is a little too Neu-metal. Under all the over-marketed "Poochie" attitude of the prince there is a cool POP game in there. Also, why has this game been out a week and no one has reviewed it yet? Expand

    God of War would have been a better port (hopefully). Sound is busted, and there isnt a good storyline. This was my first PoP game played, odd story at the begining had me wondering around with no clue why I could turn back time. Some of the environments are too tricky for the little psp controls, spent more time trying to make difficult run-on-walls to jumps, than fighting enemies. There is some satisfaction in the fighting combos. I really wanted this game to be great, but after 6 hours, I was glad I rented it. Expand

    Despite the name, this is Warrior Within squashed on a UMD disk. I say squashed because this really is a poor conversion of the excellent PS2 game. The random loading is just inconsistent, the sound seems to only work at random intervals while camera control is very limited in certain levels. The constant loading also takes its toll on the battery. Its a shame these flaws undermine the quality of the game. The graphics are fantastic throughout. The platforming is sublimely acrobatic as ever while exploration and combat are better than ever. Sadly though the aforementioned flaws linger longest in the memory. Expand

    Far, far too much combat. There has never been a satisfactory combat control system in any kind of platform game and this one is no exception. Sadly, puzzle solving takes a back seat to repetitive and tedious button mashing in this less than Princely offering. Expand
