The Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
The Gamers Temple
11 September 2005
Excerpt: By Gary Kearney OK, a couple of quick questions before I start with the review. First, did you play the first Prince of Persia (and no, I'm not talking about the one released 10 years ago.)? Second, did you like it? If you answered no to either question I must wonder why you play video games! But if you answered yes to both, then not only do I have hope for the world I must also ask you to stop reading this and go buy a copy of Prince of Persia:Warrior Within.
Summary: If it weren’t for Halo 2, then Prince of Persia: Warrior Within would definitely be among the top choices for 2004 Game of the Year. Warrior Within is everything we were expecting for the game plus some things we weren’t expecting. A truly great story, amazing gameplay, wonderful graphics, and by far the best sound in any Xbox game I have ever heard, easily makes Warrior Within one of the best Xbox games ever.
Pros: A great story, fun combat and amazing sound!
Cons: A few minor glitches and at times frustrating.
Summary: Ubisoft's Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
takes players on a darker, more dangerous journey than last year's brilliant The
Sands of Time. It plays very much like the first game, though the gameplay has
evolved with a sophisticated combat system. This is known as "Free
Form" fighting, and gives the Prince more freedom and versatility.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If you thought platformers were dead and action games were all looking the same, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within will prove otherwise. It's a breathtaking release that delivers in every category, and definitely warrants a spot in your library. A great weapons system, more mature theme and tweaked gameplay, plus Live for the Xbox version, should vault this game into console stardom. You owe it to yourself as a gamer to snap this up - right now.
Conclusion: A title that receives critical acclaim, yet fails to produce at the retail level is a hard to swallow, so I completely understand on why Warrior Within has changed much in just a year. Make no mistake about it, this is still a great game with absolutely stunning visuals, intriguing gameplay, and a cool story, but it may not be everybody’s cup of tea in terms of its new dank look or hard-edged feel.
Summary: Sans réinventer le genre, Prince of Persia : Warrior Within constitue un bon achat que vous ayez accès à Xbox-Live ou non et que vous soyez fanatique de ce genre de jeu ou non. J’ai adoré les différents effets spéciaux de ralentis lors de combats et les “retours dans le temps” qui sont particulièrement bien réussis. L’histoire est captivante du début à la fin et saura vous garder sur le bout de votre chaise des heures durant.
Pros: Le Free-Form Fighting System, qui ajoute au plaisir Les effets visuels tout à fait réussis La trame sonore
Cons: Les animatiques de qualité non optimisée pour la Xbox Le mode Xbox-Live
