Prince of Persia Warrior Within for Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2)
This 3D action sequel features the multi-talented title character of the previous year's Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, who is now imbued with even more skills and abilities, and faces an even greater threat. Pursued by an incarnation of his own deadly fate, the acrobatic Prince must platform-jump, puzzle-solve, and swordfight through a quest that leads him to the surreal island home of terrible monsters that represent humankind's greatest fears. One major enhancement to this sequel is in the fighting mechanics, which are designed to allow the Prince to string together jabs and slashes into customized combination attacks. Developing these skills will be crucial, as the hero faces even more combat in this adventure than in his last. Supernatural abilities will also play an important role, and the Prince can employ his influence over the "Ravages of Time" to give himself a fighting chance against otherwise overwhelming odds.
