This walkthrough was not made for profit, please don t take it and repost it elsewhere without my permission. This walkthrough is pretty preliminary just to get you through the game. I ll try and tell you where to swing/walk/jump in stepby-step fashion and how I defeated tricky folk like Shahdee in huge battles. I put in all the secrets I stumbled across, but I m writing it as I m playing the game the first time, so it s about as clear and straightforward as I can make it. You can e-mail me with more secrets, hidden chests, and power upgrades, but I may ignore you. Again, the primary purpose I have here is to help those who just don t know where they re going. Somewhat Important Note: I ve been reviewing what I have written here, and apparently I m dyslexic, and have occasionally confused left with right. If I said left somewhere, and you don t see it, just try right. I mean, how hard is that, anyway? Gameplay Overview The symbol in the upper left corner is your fantastic health bar, once a long blue bar, now a circular blue bar. Don t let that drop to nothing. There are also six sand wells that show how much sand you have available to you. The enemies that leave sand behind are automatically sucked up by Prince when he s close, so no more need for dagger-finishing moves. The crescent moon thing is your eight-second timer for things like Rewind and Slow Time. If that s at zero, there s really no point in activating your powers. The weapon frame is just to the right of the life circle. It will show you what secondary weapon you re wielding and how much durability it s got left, if you re even holding one. Sword maneuvers are listed at the bottom of the FAQ. I m playing on normal, on the GC version. I don t know if things are different for you on hard, and some features may change with each play-through (sand in bottles, sequence of buttons to activate portals, etc.) I thought a cool feature was the fast-forward through scenes by clicking A; it s more interesting that the usual


feature, just thought I d mention that.

The GC has it s share of glitches, the ones I encountered are mentioned during the walkthrough. I ve heard some talk that the GC is slightly better than the other consoles in terms of number and variety of glitches, but I don t know firsthand. The graphics are quite good on my Cube, and I didn t find too much in that area to complain about. The sound will occasionally fizzle the voices are not there, or out of synch with the action. That s probably the most common problem you ll see in the GC version. The voice acting is painful, anyway, so maybe not hearing it is good. I hope you played Sands of Time, because most of the moves you learned during that game are used within the first fifteen minutes here, and the story stems directly from the last one anyway. And, hey, if you didn t play the first one, where were you, anyway? Storyline Overview At any rate, the story is as it says in the manual: our Prince, having unleashed the Sands of Time in the previous game, and thus mangling the timeline, is now pursued by an invincible, and very irritable, monster called a Dahaka, bent on his destruction. In a desperate move, the Prince consults some standard WOM (Wise Old Man) and learns of the Isle of Time, where he intends to travel back in time and prevent the Sands from being created by the mysterious Empress of Time. Also, as the manual states, the Prince is much different in this game because he s been unable to eat or sleep due to the beast chasing him night and day for the past however long. That does kind of make you grim and unfriendly, but our Prince now looks like he s been dipping into the crack. That s just personal opinion. Walkthrough -----------------Welcome Party (The Boat) After that interesting intro movie, you ll find yourself captain of a beleaguered vessel, and see the infamous M-rated scene which introduces you to your scantily-clad friend (and her ass), affectionately referred to as Time Bitch. No really, her name is Shahdee. Important Fighting Tips (some basics): The tutorial section will probably help you out here more than I can, just remember that you want to pick up weapons you see on the ground by hitting X. See the references below for fuller info on the possible combos. Remember, block with R. R is your friend. It will save you from about anything they can dish out, even many back attacks. Another good one from Sands of Time is A(toward enemy)+B+B, which will enable you to jump over one monster and slice him in the back, allowing you to escape from the midst of a dangerous fray and take them on one at a time. The tutorial will also introduce you (hopefully) to the A+X+X method of hitting people and stealing their weapons at the same time. It s very cool, but it can be very slow, so look out for other approaching enemies. My personal favorite is from Sands of Time also the ever-useful

wall-jump attack. Move toward a wall, with B (you could use Y also in this game) and jump back out with B for a fast, hard strike at whatever stands in your way. It will get you out of a fray, knock down one or more enemies, and does plenty of damage. The other varieties of wall-jump, listed below, are also good, and are very cool-looking. Learn t hem, because I ll forever be telling you to use them. Kill everything in sight and keep moving to your left across the deck. Eventually you will fall through to the lower levels. Make your way forward and dispatch enemies however you see fit. Experiment with the pole-swinging kill, which looks very cool, although it may be a move the Prince learned from the strip joints he frequents. Just hit B or Y while heading toward a column. Make a 180 out of the room with a pole in it, through the waterfilled corridor. Don t forget to drink here if necessary. No logs are beams will hit you, don t worry. After an impressive display of acrobatics, Prince is now on Shahdee s boat. Kill everything in sight again (you need the practice) but don t take too much damage. Keep making your way to the left, to challenge Shahdee to battle. Shahdee Battle Tips: So this battle was tough, seeing as you don t have sand yet. Don t worry, you re not alone. Shahdee is a HUGE step up from those fools you ve been fighting so far. Shahdee makes some huge combos, so you d better get used to blocking. Prince has better reach and better acrobatics, though, so use that to your advantage by coming in swinging from a distance. As soon as she blocks any of your hits, you d better start blocking, because she s about to counter. Also, you sometimes get your hilts crossed hit B repeatedly to shove her off and then follow up with more hits. Once you get her down to three-quarters health, she slices you a good one. You only need to get her to about one-quarter health before she knocks you out. After that, you finally get to see what s going on and why. Or at least you get an idea. The cinematics are good, though. They will all be saved to your Extra Features, also, so you can rewatch it any time. The Isle of Time (The Beach) You wake up on the beach, and grab a stick in place of your sword. Still makes a steely hiss when you draw it though. Oh well. Slap some crows around if you want, but they don t do you any real harm, and make your way up the beach. There s water on your right if you need it. Head towards the stairway entrance at the end of the beach on your right, behind it there s an artwork chest. Climb up the stairs by just moving Prince toward the ledge he climbs automatically. Now, as the tutorial suggests, jump across the next few chasms with A and drink/save if you want at the fountain. Jump up onto the ledge and edge around to your right. Hit X to hang and scoot under the big rock. Jump across and grab hold of the handholds there to edge around to your left (it s that green mossy line in the rock behind you). Whip out your stick and bash those crows if they give you any crap. Climb up onto the ledge when you can, and jump back (hit A and push the stick away from the wall). Move over and haul yourself up onto the next

Run up the wall to grab it. and he blocks well. but not along the wall with a big hole in it. Run along the wall to the mossy area. Run back the way you came to catch hold of a ledge that you can barely see. you ll probably want some of that. Practice a few times if you need to. You also gain the Spider Sword. then run up the wall and jump back to get to the next one. as instructed by the tutorial. Remember this room. Once he flies off. It s not too complex. I m going to generally assume you can do this kind of simple stuff from now on. and he just showed back up at the ground floor. since you have no sand powers to speak of. Don t go back for water I did that. Jump across the chasms to arrive at the next courtyard. but I don t see why. duh. Wall-jump him if you like. I ll probably call it the room where you met your first crow guy for your reference. There are bottles with sand in them in the hall. quickly jump back for the column. Run across the wall over the next chasm. Climb up the ledges and jump back for a hanging column.platform. There s a fountain on your left after you enter. or at least be able to recognize it. Go up the stairs and let yourself down over the side to the grassy platform. health-wise. Jump to the next column and then only the platform. and from there. You may as well get in the practice. as it s pretty self-explanatory in most cases. head to the ledge to the left of where you came in. You d better be good at this running along walls business before long. Roll underneath the hole in the door up ahead to fight two more ghouls. so your best bet is to jump over him or counter his attacks. Perhaps we will be back later. Aim yourself properly (back toward) the next column and hit A to jump. Climb up the large stairs until you reach a big iron gate. The door back in the courtyard opens. If you re in trouble. try moving the camera so it s right behind Prince so you are moving in the right direction as you run. He ll turn a smoky yellow and . Welcome to the Fortress Entrance. then run across to the platform underneath him. go after her. after you dispatch of the four ghouls. If you find yourself running sideways along the wall instead. Just hit A before Prince falls to his doom. Climb over and hop down into the courtyard. to the platform where the crow guy awaits. Jump for the next column. keep blocking and walljump when you get the chance. Trust me. you ll have to learn the skill of running along walls then jumping back. get on top of that and run up the wall. We ll be back later much later. The crows here have coalesced to take their vengeance on you. The enemies regenerate in this game. At the next chasm. then to the platform where you ll finally kill that crow guy. but you don t have to fight Shahdee again yet. This guy flies. Jump onto the low column you see there and climb up. On the right edge there s another artwork chest get it. Beat him a second time. At it s left is a stone block. Run up the next wall. because I ll probably suggest you walljump everyone during the course of this FAQ. Run along the wall to the opposite side.

I ll leave all that up to you. since water starts to become scarce after a while. I m generally going to ignore the weapons racks and other weapon issues if you want one. This can be anything from you falling into a bottomless pit. yadda yadda yadda. so move on into the hallway in front of you. anyway. but it seems to be stuck. climb up the pillar across from the pole and run up its face to grab hold of a hand hold at the top. use these powers for the good of mankind. Run through the curtain of water to your first portal room. Edge by some more vertical guys (I went past the left one.
