Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within is a third-person action platformer, originally released on sixth-generation consoles in 2004, and revamped in HD with trophy support on the PlayStation 3 in 2010 as part of the Prince of Persia Trilogy. The game is a sequel to The Sands of Time.
Taking place seven years following the events of The Sands of Time, the Prince is being pursued by a creature known as the Dahaka. After learning this is a result of releasing the Sands of Time, the Prince sets off to prevent the Sands from being created, hoping to escape his fate and appease the Dahaka.
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within on the PlayStation 2 received mostly positive reviews, with an average score of 85%, praised for its platforming elements and improved combat system, though criticized by some for the game's new artistic direction.
While Prince of Persia: Warrior Within could arguably be considered the more difficult game in the Prince of Persia Trilogy, it's not by a far degree. At least three playthroughs are required, one of which on Hard mode, with some collectibles to find and missable trophies which, if you're following one of the guides in our Links page, shouldn't pose much of a problem. Any average player shouldn't have too much trouble unlocking the platinum, hence the 2-star difficulty rating.
Expect roughly 20-25 hours for the Platinum, if done in three playthroughs.
The game will require a minimum of three full playthroughs, as the difficulty mode related trophies do not stack. It's up to you which route you take, but we recommend at least working towards the Undefeated trophy - completing the game without dying - last. This way, after having played the game twice already, you should know it inside and out, making this trophy easier. Also, we recommend doing this on Easy mode.
Also, you should NOT attempt to get the secret ending, and therefore the Black Sand trophy, on Hard mode, as defeating the Dahaka on this mode is quite ridiculous. Save this for your Normal mode playthrough - or even Easy mode, if you feel confident about defeating him AND not dying for the Undefeated trophy.
So, the roadmap we recommend is as follows:
First, play on Normal mode, attempt to collect as many trophies as you can during the playthrough, get all the life boasts, then defeat Dahaka for the Black Sand trophy.
Second, play on Hard mode, try to unlock any missed trophies if you can, defeat the Empress for the normal ending, and therefore the Royal Battle trophy.
Third, play on Easy mode and focus on not dying, for the Undefeated trophy.
If there's anything missing after that, then simply start up a fourth game on Easy mode to mop-up anything remaining.
