Can anybody please tell me how I am suppose to beat the warrior?? I have had no issue with the others but I just can't overpower him. I know there's a trainer but it doesn't help because if I use it it messes upthe game at the 4 pillars part of the ormazd tower.

I have tried for 5 hours to beat him and I am really getting frustrated. Any help would be really appreciated.

You must push the guy out of the platform, make him follow you to the edge and your attacks will make him fall down.

Just started playing and man does this game look good at 1920x1080 + 4xAA! The only thing that's bothering me is that it's too easy. Is there any way to crank up the difficulty level? Really wish they had incorporated a checkpoint system instead of just having Eleka save you all the time. Game is really fun though!

The game was fun, but now that I finished the PS3 version I won't be buying the PC version unless it's under $15 on the PC. I was thinking about buying it with the current Steam sale but I just can't do it for what the game offers. After I was done I had no interest at all to play it again. I looked at some of the trophies I was missing and I just didn't care.

Originally I thought that the no dying thing was a bad thing, but in hindsight it really doesn't matter cause if you save constantly with a save system, or do a back from a checkpoint like system, it is essentially the same thing. So I wouldn't really take points off it's score for it. Though IMO I think the Sands of Time game did it the best. You can die so you see this death animation, which I think is essential to the PoP series, but when you do he is telling a story so he goes "oh wait that's not how it happened, let me tell that again." I thought that was brilliant.

My biggest gripe with this game is the flying minigame. You can invert the y-axis but it's not inverted during the flying parts, that is so retarded. It's like it was put there on purpose so that people who are use to airplane like Y axis controls can spend forever screwing up this little simple mini game and banging their head against the wall. This one also just screams it needs multiple endings, but it looks like there is only one . I do get why the ending is the way it is and it makes sense especially if you talk to each other a lot through the whole game, but come on one ending with this kind of setup is an insult to the player IMO. This should have easily had 3 different endings and all could have ended in a way that would setup a sequel.

Anyone know of a way to force the refresh rate to 50 in this game? My current hdmi cable sucks(I get loads of lines streaking across the screen when using 60Hz) so I need a way to force it to 50.

Ok played through 6 levels and collected all the light seeds(except for the ones I need powers to reach), but it seems like the collecting part takes four times as long as the level itself. Wish it were the other way around... :-/ Hate having to collect things - especially if it's all for nothing(would have been cool to be able to upgrade your sword/stats/combos after collecting say 100 seeds). But no...

The no dying part is very lame but otherwise the game is fun. I like how they implemented the jumping controls, ideal mix between player control and automatic movement. Much better than Assassins Crap for example.

The PC version is brilliant. 1080p, 8x AA and constant 60 FPS. Plays great with the 360 controller.





Yeah if I had your system I'd buy it on PC too but alas I don't have that much money to be throwing on my computer every 6 months. I love PC gaming and don't deny that your SS do look a little nicer than my 360 version but I guarantee at your settings I would not see a constant 60FPS on my system and it's barely a year old and I didn't skimp that much it cost me a pretty penny to upgrade.

Anyways glad your enjoying it and I picked it up Wednesday on the 360 and I like it a lot. I like it even more since I got it on sale for $39.99.

Why are you doing it then if you hate it? Only reason on PC to collect them all is for the prince skin unlock. You only need about half of all the seeds to get the power plates powers. And you get most of them going from one place to another, I only had to do a little back searching for the 3rd and 4th power plate,

Btw I'm running this maxed with 8aa 1280x1024 (amd 5600+, 4gb ddr 2 800, hd 2900xt 512) Not new hardware, game runs like lightning.

LOL I thought you had to collect them all! But I am kind of a perfectionist, so I can't leave something at 50%. Guess I'm going to do this one level at a time! That way the game lasts longer and I don't get frustrated.

Finished the game in 17 hours and didn't look for all seeds (got around 700). I took my time and enjoyed every dialog with the Elika.
