Control issues aside, Warrior Within really is a magnificent sequel.

Prince of Persia: Warrior Within HD Review

by on May 11, 2012

Warrior Within – originally a 2004 console sequel – has both style and substance, and aside from a few control issues, it works superbly on the iPad.

The Prince, having released the Sands of Time from an oversized egg timer, is now being pursued by a beast called the Dahaka. On consulting an expert, the Prince finds that anyone who releases the Sands of Time must die, so the Dahaka must restore the cosmic balance by killing him.
And it looks great. Despite being a port of a six-year-old game, the rich grandeur of the exaggerated Persian architecture looks particularly dramatic on the iPad’s superb screen. Within this environment, you play out a balanced mix of platforming and combat.

The Prince can run, jump, roll, run along walls, climb, clamber and swing his way across almost any obstacle, stringing together moves in spectacular fashion. The same is true of his combat skills. Wielding blades, the Prince can hack, slash and lunge through enemies as well as string complex combos together.

The only downfall is the controls. Acrobatic movements can be tricky to pull off because it’s hard to ‘feel’ the virtual stick. But even with this problem, it’s another great iPad game.
