Prince of Persia: Warrior Within is a video game and sequel to Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. It picks up where The Sands of Time left off, adding new features, specifically, options in combat. The Prince now has the ability to wield two weapons at a time as well as the ability to steal his enemies' weapons and throw them. The Prince's repertoire of combat moves has been expanded into varying strings that allow players to attack enemies with more complexity than was possible in the previous game. Warrior Within has a darker tone than its predecessor adding in the ability for the Prince to dispatch his enemies with various finishing moves. In addition to the rewind, slow-down, and speed-up powers from The Sands of Time, the Prince also has a new sand power: a circular "wave" of sand that knocks down all surrounding enemies as well as damaging them. The dark tone, a vastly increased level of blood and violence as well as sexualized female NPCs earned the game an M ESRB rating.

Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
r7408 Windows 7 AMD Phenom II 720 BE @ 3.2 GHz ATI Radeon HD 4850 Works perfect ultramann
4.0-4733 Ubuntu 14.10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Almost perfect with default settings. I noticed one or two sound effects that were a bit louder than usual using HLE but nothing annoying. Pre-rendered cutscenes drop frames, though the severity varies and they always stay at 100% regardless. Game runs full speed at all times, and other than what's mentioned everything is perfect.

5.0-6243 Windows 10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Needs Disable Fog to fix multiple bugged particle effects, with seemingly no side effects. Audio is bugged and background music/dialogue cues are often absent or delayed. FPS will drop to 12 when accessing the memory card. Videos still drop frames (fluctuating FPS while keeping a stable VPS) but this may just be a GameCube video compression thing. The actual gameplay itself is perfect, and I was able to complete the entire game. Xerxes
