Prince of Persia: Revelations review

Why is the warrior within so surly?


  • Beautiful graphics that rival PS2 title
  • Surprisingly decent controls
  • Evil chick in a metal thong


  • Too much fighting
  • not enough puzzling
  • Strange sound bugs abound
  • Camera is tricky to manipulate

Seriously, though. If you're going to port one of the console Prince of Persia games to a handheld, why choose Warrior Within? The red-headed stepchild of the modern Prince of Persia series was not only super-buggy, but featured an easy-to-hate hero (viva generic rage!) and fighting-centric gameplay that turned off most fans of the first game.

And Revelations - which is basically a director's cut of Warrior Within - has all of the same problems, with the added bonus of clunky camera control thanks to the limited inputs of the PSP hardware.

DescriptionWarrior Within was a good, but sloppy game. Revelations is more of the same.
