From the Publisher
Hunted by Dahaka, an immortal incarnation of Fate seeking divine retribution, the Prince embarks upon a path of both carnage and mystery to defy his preordained death. His journey leads to the infernal core of a cursed island stronghold harbouring mankind's greatest fears.
Only through grim resolve, bitter defiance, and the mastery of deadly new combat arts can the Prince rise to a new level of warriorship and defend what no enemy shall take away - his life.
The sands of time in the Prince's life trickle slowly down the hourglass. The heroic warrior journeys to turn back time before his own fate becomes sealed in the stunning Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.
* New, complex combat system
* Multiple endings
* More than 50 weapons
* Manipulate time during battle

Hunted by a supernatural creature bent on destruction, the Prince is forced to live a life on the run. By releasing the Sands of Time, the Prince created a rift in the Timeline and spawned an immortal incarnation of Fate, known as the Dahaka. The Prince's fate is seemingly sealed: He must die. There’s only one possible way to stay alive: journey to the birthplace of the Sands of Time, find a way to travel back into the past, and stop the Sands from being created.

The Prince has no idea what's in store for him.

The Prince of Persia franchise has always been known for its mind-bending puzzles, booby traps galore, outrageous acrobatic moves and majestic artwork of an ancient kingdom. Prince of Persia: Warrior Within adds bone-slicing action into that recipe for success. The Warrior Within definitely comes out.

The scurvy opposition of zombified foot-soldiers and magical villains line up to get sliced and diced by the Middle East's one-man wrecking crew. The Prince's powerful blade will split opponents in two, vertically or horizontally. The Prince makes no bones about separating their heads from their bodies. Pretty gruesome way to go.

Although the blood and dismemberment gets most of the attention, it's the exciting combo system that takes center stage in the heat of battle. Watching the Prince battle is a lot like watching a kung fu movie. To be successful, he needs to use his environment to get the upper hand in battle. The Prince will run up walls, flip and slice. He'll grab a column and swing around it, slicing all within reach. He'll roll on the ground or flip off ledges to deliver a finishing blow. Combine that with a massive number of attack combos the Prince can perform, and you get a deep, deep fighting system. You don't have to use all the combos to be successful. Just find the ones that work best for your style and make your style his.

As the game progresses, the Prince learns valuable time-manipulation techniques that will help him exploit battle weaknesses of his enemies and himself. He will slow down his enemies while he fights at normal speeds. The Prince can also take back a bad attack or defense decision by rewinding time. As with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, this manipulation of time also applies to non-combat situations.

If you're impressed by the fighting system, you'll be equally impressed with the environments and puzzles, if not more so. Each puzzle has so many levels to it, if you think you're out of the woods, you probably aren't. The shift in time during the game also gave the developers a chance to delve into two visual styles: one of light and glory and another of darkness and decay. Changes made in the grandeur of the past will affect the state of the ruins in the present. When you return to the present, the layouts of palaces will have changed, forcing you to rethink how to get out of a situation. It doesn't take much to lose all sense of time with this game. Not in the Prince's world--in your world. It's a jewel of a game in every aspect, and the difficulty and intensity will keep you glued to your seat. It's the kind of game you can enjoy just watching while someone is playing.

Bottom Line
If you forgot to pick it up on your first chance, turn back time to the point when you were at the game store and pick up Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.
