Prince of Persia The Warrior Within

When I first started I expected to be You as the Prince has to jump, swing and do your usual platforming tricks to get to where Elika has to use her magic powers to heal the fertile grounds. Nice and simple! It's the Prince's and Elika's job to heal lands known as fertile grounds to restore power back to the Tree of Life and stop the evil god Ahriman escaping.

With the Tree of Life destroyed, Ahriman begins to infect the kingdom and its lands with Corruptions. The basic story premise is Elika's father and ruler of the kingdom destroys the Tree of Life, which contains the God Ahriman. The new cell shaded design is an instant win, for me, and the new Prince and his sexy side-kick Elika both look stunning. The Ubisoft team have gone with a completely new art and graphical direction, with the game looking like a beautiful painted canvas.

Now the Prince is reborn on the new generation of consoles with the Prince of Peria on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the trusty PC. Lastly the Two Thrones melded these two important elements into one great game, finishing off the story brilliantly. The first Prince of Persia - The Sands of Time was a platforming gem, whilst The Warrior Within took the fighting mantel. The last reincarnation of the Persian Prince on these platforms were fantastic. The Prince of Persia games have been around since the days of the Apple II and have graced previous generations of consoles like the PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
