It took me 1 to 4 hours of game-play each day for 2 weeks to finish Prince of Persia: Warrior Within. On some levels I had to look into it's game guide that I download in some foreign language to help me figure out what to do next. Although, I couldn't understand a word it was written in, but it had ample number of screenshots, which turned out to be enough of help.
The Game is Awesome! Although the game plotline is not like as Matrix good, but it was ok. Actually the Game-play and the state-of-the-art graphics overwhelmed all of the game's inadequacies. I really liked the new free-style combat system the designers added. But, the thing/feature that gave me a rush was when every time I made the prince run sideways on the walls.
The Prince in the Warrior Within is more rugged/bad-ass looking than from the past versions. Don't you think he looks more Shitte in this sequal of the game? ;)
Completing the game, all the videos got unlocked. I was a little surprised to find out that the game designers were mostly French-Canadians. The last game I played designed by Canadians was Need For Speed 3: Hot Pursuit. I think Canadian game designers really know how to make good games. Keep up the good work eh!
At the end of the game, I was reading the credits. When the part about the voice talent rolled on, I noticed only one familiar name from the list. It was Monica Bellucci as the voice of Kaileena (Empress of Time). The rest of the cast was unfamiliar to me.
I just found out that UbiSoft is working on Prince of Persia 3 and released a E3 trailor on their website.
And on an unrelated note: My blog got mentioned on Sepia Mutiny on their "Kitsch Idol" post. Now why would any respected blogger mention such a lame blog like mine on their blog? Anyway, thanks for the honor Sepia Mutiny.
