Summary: Warrior Within is a direct sequel to Sands of Time, effectively making it the "middle child" of the original trilogy. Sequels often suffer from one of two problems: either it's a complete rehash of its predecessor or it becomes darker and edgier. Ubisoft decided to go with the latter option, to an unpleasantly extreme point.
Summary: Prince of Persia: Sands of Time was a classic. Winning game of the year was destiny. Speaking of destiny, there is a lot of that in Warrior Within. Any way to make a quick buck. This is, of course, referring to how ubisoft can not help make a sequel to the masterpeice that is this game's predecessor for profit. But Warrior Within isn't wuch a bad game overall. However, there is much that could be improved. What really caught me was the story.
A great game on its own, but fell short as a PoP franchise.

Summary: There are a lot of mixed reactions about Prince of Persia: Warrior Within. Some people say the game is great. Others say it isn't as good as its previous instalment, The Sands of Time. Without sounding like a moaning pansy, I must say that I'm more prone towards the latter. Warrior Within is a great game on its own, but for a Prince of Persia franchise, it fell short because of its eagerness to please a wider audience.
Summary: In general, the game is good but I wouldn't buy it at its current market value... First off, the game took me 10 days not only to finish, but also to complete, which is not very long as I don't pull all-nighters or stay up until the wee hours of the morning to play games. I say anyone good enough and serious about finishing the game as soon as possible could easily pull it off within 2-4 days.
Summary: This game is more challenging than PoP Sands of Time, longer, and somewhat buggier. I enjoyed the time I spent with it, but very close to the end I was prevented from finishing by a known and widely reported bug. (A time portal fails to operate.) Apparently the solution is to start the game over from scratch, but I lack the time and heart do the whole thing again.
Summary: Every holiday, I buy a new game for my husband and we play together -- with his hand at the controls. We enjoy more RPG type games than hacky slashy stuff. I am sad that the music in Warrior Within is more heavy metal than beautiful, that the scenes are less well-lit and not as stunning and that there are half-naked women that scream alot when you are fighting them -- for 30 minutes in a row. If you are a good fighter, you get to call the woman, "[...]," etc.
Summary: I have played this games first level in it's early stages, and it wasn't that bad. If the final hasn't changed too much, I will get it. Be warned, there is intense violence and lots of blood. I don't know why the producers had to put so much blood in it, as well as a half naked girl. If you have a mature kid under 17, you should consider this game. Otherwise, be heisitant.
Summary: Literally only been playing this game on my PS3 (HD Trilogy Edition) for around half an hour and can honestly say that up til now I am not enjoying it at all, ok fair do's the prince still does things like drinking water, climbing and running across walls but that's where the similarities end, everything is so much different and darker (maybe that's what the producers of this game wanted) but I don't think they've made it better at all.
