Summary: I bought this series and the volume does not work with it. Forgot what company I received it from. When I went to go return it in the mail I did not see another copy of it ever, and I did not see any money pop up into my account again. I was very disappointed. Still am, because I would love them for my collection.
Summary: The Sands of Time trilogy is one of my personal favorites of its era. Each game is brilliant, but flawed in one way or another. The developers developed the habit of over-correction in the course of its development. The first game, The Sands of Time, has a story, atmosphere and character development that is genuinely magical. The gameplay is mostly great, and the Prince controls extremely well, for the most part. The platforming is fluid, responsive and fun.
How Did This Make it Past Quality Assurance? Abysmal Sound Makes it Unplayable

Summary: As one of the few gamers that never played the original Prince of Persia releases, I eagerly anticipated this HD Trilogy and purchased it yesterday after a significant price cut. Even with the price cut, this collection is a blatant slap in the face to gamers. The sound quality in all three games is atrocious, to the point of making the games completely unplayable.
Summary: I could go into a lot of things but I will keep it short. This game (3 games) is the biggest waste of money I have ever spend on amazon. It is poor all round, the only good thing is the music and the concept. Do yourself a favour and go buy a game that doesn't suck.
Summary: Don't get me wrong, the Prince of Persia games are fantastic, and some of the best games in the 6th console generation, but this review is based purely on how well they were converted to HD - terribly. Firstly, there's a huge lack of consistency in graphical quality, with some objects that have been improved and others that have been left alone. This makes the games look ugly, and every single part of them looks out of place and strange.
Summary: Unfortunately Warrior Within has some pretty bad problems in it which are hard not to notice - there are some weird sound problems, there's a very loud sound that plays over Kaileena talking in one cutscene twice for a short while, the camera angles have been altered from the original PS2 versions which means the characters' eyes are nearly chopped off the top of the screen, and the camera being behind a red curtain in one cutscene.
