From UbiSoft Entertainment:
Hunted by Dahaka, an immortal incarnation of Fate seeking divine retribution, the Prince embarks on a new journey on a cursed island. Only with courage and the mastery of new combat arts can the Prince emerge victoriously. As the Prince, you can develop your own fighting style by manipulating the environment and the enemies. You can even use new projectile attacks and Sands of Time powers to rid the lands of deadly monsters.
This demo for Prince of Persia: Warrior Within contains the opening movie and the ship level from the game.
per prior reviews, the graphics are copacetic. not worth purchasing a game just for graphics. if you want spectacular cinematography see the movie 'the painted veil". i couldn't justify investing time in this demo. - see cons
i'm tired of playing this genre game where you have to hack beasts and goblins and such. it's stupid. click click click click ad infinitum to kill ghouls that don't die after you hack them once. ridiculous. then the game is too linear.
i didn't enjoy the game because of the game itself. repeated clicking to kill monsters that drop out of the woodworks just doesn't do it for me. no save option in demo. this is the height of bad game play because once you fall or die, you have to restart the same linear hacking sequence. no options to stray from the storyline. then, as mentioned in prior review, couldn't save game in demo. i'm going to try it one more time to see if i can just run past all the obstacles.
Prince of persia warrior within is a excellent follow on from the sands of time and continues this brilliant story line
the graphics are some of the best in-game graphics you will see,and the sound is just as good
graphic card wise this will play with a geforce 6200 and upwards and a radeon 9250 upwards,and the sound will sound best played through a sounblaster audigy allthough onboard sound is good(realtek ac-97,n-force)
one of the good aspects of this game are the ingame hints and guides,showing you the correct buttons to press to do certain jumps and fighting combo,s
the ingame video sequences are probally some of the best you will see in a p.c game allthough a decent processor is needed to get the best playback(pentium 4,athlon64 3200+)
well done ubi-soft on a excellent game with addictive gameplay(unusual in a action game)and a allround brillliant game
allthough the video sequences are very good,they can seem a bit long,and sometimes get quite annoying...apart from that nothing
I love the gamepad support they have.Great graphics and sounds.The gameplay is nice and tight.Sometimes I just mash buttons and cool stuff happens.
There are alot of frustrations, just basic things like wall hopping(and falling to your death) can lead to playing the same part over and over.Although the prince has many great moves the enemies are kind of repetitive.although it has great gamepad support the help baloons are all keypad and mouse references.Sometimes I just mash buttons and cool stuff happens.
The most amazing feature is the freeform fighting system. The Prince has about 70 different moves and hits he can perform, and the player can chain up any series and combination of these moves. Throwing enemies, jumping off them, stealing their weapons, breaking necks, cutting limbs, kicking, pushing, stabbing... it just goes on and on. Plus the whole thing is controlled with only four "action" buttons, WASD for movement, and the mouse. Within half an hour, you'll have mastered the controls.
Second, the graphics are excellent. Of course, to enjoy them you'll need a pretty beefy graphics card, but that's beside the point :)
Third, the demo lets you play through the first level of the game, which, by the time you finish it, will make you want to scream "Noooo! I need moooooore!" and go buy the game ;)
I can't think of any noticeable problems with the demo (other than its length).
