I didn't even games this bad were possible to make. Horrifying sound effects. Terrible camera views. Bad controls. Storyline... And just about everything else you need to make a good. You failed this time Ubisoft. I can't understand how you like this game. DO NOT BUY/RENT THIS GAME. WASTE OF YOUR MONEY
Let me start out by saying that its a really good game, has something for everyone, and its involved enough where you'll be spending some actual time with it vs beating it in an afternoon and ebaying it the next morning. My only problems with the game are that they made no real improvements in the nearly two years since 'Sands of Time'. The fighting is a bit on the redundant and annoying side, the camera changes while you're in action can drive ya crazy, and there just isn't enough story development to draw you in. I know this is more of a noir chapter in the story, so the "scenes" lack the vibrant nature of 'Sands of Time' so the scenery isn't as spectacular, but that's by design as its a darker episode. Despite it being a lot of the same thing throughout the game, its still a great title, and a great way to tire out your thumbs.
It's a pretty good game. More moves, more combos, and more ways to defeat your enemy. Lots of extreme traps to pass by and the Empress is hawt, did I mention she was hawt? What I like about this game is that it was very interesting how they change the perspective of who the Prince was. He was young and royal-like from the first game to serious and tough guy in Warrior Within. What I didn't like about the game is that there were a lot of glitches, meaning the game is very buggy but I was still enjoying the game.
PROS A lot of good stuff of improvements More swords, combos, moves, etc. A challenging yet enjoyable game All the powers you can use just like the first game but this time they're better! (Except recall and slow time) Great graphics
CONS Very buggy Even though I like Godsmack's "I stand alone" song but the game did not capture my taste of Persian music The actor who originally voice the prince didn't take the role again and made the story of Warrior Within a completely different feeling...
Final thoughts It's a good game and it's the second installment of the Prince of Persia series. Rent it to live the moment or buy it if you're fan of it.
