WALKTHROUGH - Chapter
1: Our Arrival at Babylon
After the beginning cutscene, roll under the door ahead
and head to the left. Jump and climb on top of the wooden
structure next to the fireball on the ground. Make a
series of three big leaps to the next few platforms,
then wall run to the fourth platform. Run directly up
the wall to the right after the wall run and shimmy
to the area on the left. Drop from the ledge and slide
down the ladder in the back.
Enter the wreckage of the building to the right and
climb up the column. Turn your backside to the second
column and jump. Climb up the second column and jump
again. Position your back to the wooden platform on
the side of the building (rotate the camera) and jump
to it. Climb to the top of the wooden walkway with the
railing, hang off the side closest to the column, and
jump to the column. Turn your back to the crevice in
the wall to the side and jump to it. Shimmy along the
crevice and drop to the platform. Position the camera
to face the small ledge above the crevice on the other
side, then wall run toward the small ledge. Jump to
the crevice and use it to shimmy across to the top of
the wall. Fall and grab onto the side of the wall and
drop to the rock below. Use the save fountain to save
Run down the ramp ahead and hit the landscape view
button to see some enemies around the area. Climb up
the ladder to the side and walk to the right afterwards.
After the cutscene,
you will be given the option to perform your first speed
kill. The Prince will automatically crouch and enter
a sneaking animation when approaching an enemy from
behind. To perform a speed kill, walk behind the enemy
until the screen becomes distorted then press the secondary
attack button to initiate the speed kill animation.
As the animation slows down you must press the primary
attack button during that instant to continue the speed
For the first few speed kills, the tutorial will
guide you through each strike animation, but for the
rest, you will need to time the primary attack button
Press the landscape view button to get an idea of where
to go next. Hop to the other side of the railing to
the right and jump to the column.
Pull yourself up to the ledge after shimmying then
jump to the next crevice and shimmy some more. Fall
down and walk along the next ledge, then jump to the
wooden platform. Get on the ladder, but don't slide
down just yet.
Wait for the guard at the bottom to walk toward the
ladder. Slide down the ladder and perform a speed kill
when he turns around. Run down the broken ramp and head to the
right. This next guard will not turn around so you will
have to fight him. Use this chance to get used to the
free form fighting system that is exclusive to the Prince
of Persia series. Block his attacks and counter. Use
the jump button to leap over him and strike him to knock
him down. Pick up his sword afterwards from his dead
Slide down the column and perform a speed
kill to the enemy up ahead. Wall run to the platform across from
the enemy and shimmy along the crevice up above it.
Walk further down the alley until you see a waterfall
in the distance. Wall run along the left wall then jump
while wall running to reach the ledge on the right.
Pull yourself up the first ledge then jump to the
next and shimmy to the next area. Climb up the ladder
and run up the wall to reach the window. After the cutscene,
wall run to the red curtain on the left. The Prince
will automatically sink his dagger into the curtain
and slide down to the next level. Walk into the open
area and three guards will charge you. Focus on one
at the start of the battle. Once one of them has fallen,
throw your weapon at one of the others for some major
damage, then grab the fallen guard's weapon to continue
the battle. Pick up a strong secondary weapon and head
to the building they came from.
Walk through the entrance and climb the ladder. Jump
to the next ladder once the top of the first one has
been reached. Turn around on the second ladder and climb
to the top. Run up the wall in front of the ladder and
jump to the ledge across from the wall as you reach
the top. Pull yourself up on the ledge then jump to
the ladder across from you. Climb the ladder to the
area above. After scaring the birds with the Prince's
ramblings, fall off the wooden platform. Jump to the
small ledge beside the door on the left and climb on
top of the building.
Inch your way to the other end of the roof and the birds
will automatically fly off alerting the archer below.
Wait until the archer goes back to his watch spot then
wall run using the left wall to reach the ledge up above
him. From the top of the ledge, initiate a speed kill.
The Prince will only go through one attack animation
for each speed kill done to an archer.
Approach the doorway and wait until the guard has
his back to the ladder, then slide down the ladder and
immediately approach him and perform a speed kill.
The archer in the back will not notice anything
so you can speed kill him after the guard. Climb through the open space that
the archer was guarding and climb the ladder. Fall to
the area below to find a
Walk along the wooden platform outside and wall run
on the left wall then jump to the next wooden platform
across from the wall in the distance. On the second
wooden platform move to the end, next to the piece of
the building that is trailing from the wall, and get
on the small ledge. Drop and hang on the ledge and shimmy
all the way to the next platform. Walk across the beam
to the ledge on the opposite side and follow the ledge
around the corner. Stand at the tip of the broken beam
and jump to the other beam tip. Roll under the broken
wood to enter the next area.
Hit the weapon rack against the side wall for a better
sword. Walk out onto the tip of the beam and jump to
the top beam above the enemies.
Move to the center of the second beam and as the
archer turns his back to walk away, initiate a speed
kill on the guard below the beam. After the kill, immediately
rush behind the archer and perform another speed kill.
Walk to the right side of the beam and
drop down to the second beam. The birds will fly off
and alert the enemies but they will still not see you.
Run up the steps in the side area then run up the wall
and jump to the beam. Pull yourself up and jump to the
second beam. Walk across the second beam to the area
ahead. Jump to the beam in front of you and stand on
the tip of the beam that is trailing ahead. Now for
something a little different - jump toward the gap in
front of you and the Prince will automatically spread
out his arms and legs to suspend himself in the gap.
The gaps are much like ladders only with different animation.
Hold down to slide down the gap then drop once you reach
the bottom. Two guards will automatically be alerted
when you drop to the street below. Fight them off and
take one of their weapons if needed.
Go around the corner and jump to the beam on the right.
Walk to the right side and jump to the piece of the
beam above. Walk to the end of the small beam and leap
to the gap up ahead. Climb up the gap and pull yourself
up on the side of the building. Look up ahead, in between
all the flames in the windows, and you will see a single
beam. Jump to the beam and walk to the part of the beam
that points toward a gap. Leap in between the gap and
slide down it.
Press right or left to turn around while inside the
beam and initiate a speed kill on the guard below.
Go up the stairs and walk into the next area. Use the
landscape view to see some enemies below. Once the Prince
goes into his crouching animation creep toward the birds
in the distance until they fly off. This will alert
the enemies below.
Wait until the enemies go back to their normal stances
and jump to the beam above the guard. The screen will
distort as you grab on. Pull yourself up and initiate
the speed kill. Sneak up behind the archer and speed
kill him as well.
Climb up the ladder and walk out onto the beam. Use
the beam to jump to the railing on the other side. Right when you grab on an Archer will walk
by in the distance. Wait for him to walk over to the
wall and walk back, then pull yourself up and sneak
up behind him for a speed kill. He's by himself so don't
worry about alerting another enemy. Roll under the broken door to get
to the next area. Save your game at the save fountain
across from the burning building.
Walk to the back of the burning building and run up
the side of it to reach the roof.
Use the right wall to wall run then jump while running
to reach the beam across from the wall. Pull yourself up immediately as
you grab the beam and wait for the screen to distort
then strike the guard below with a speed kill.
Sneak up behind the archer for yet another speed
to the beam and then leap to the area across from the
Run all the way up the stairs until you reach the dead
end. Run up either the right or left wall and jump to
each side of the wall in repetition (wall jump). Wait
for the Prince to hit each side of the wall then tap
the jump button again until you reach either of the
ledges above. At the top, grab onto the second ledge
above the right ledge and walk to the side of the building.
Climb up to the wooden platform up ahead and walk to
the end of the beam facing the group of beams in the
distance. Jump and pull yourself up onto the first beam
then make your way across the rest by jumping. When
you reach the balcony across from the guards hop over
the railing and hang from the side.
Jump to the small ledge in the black area
of the building across from you. Fall to
the second ledge below the first and the screen will
distort. Start the speed kill immediately after the
turning guard faces away from the one below you (rotate
the camera to see him). Right after the first speed
kill immediately sneak behind the second guard and start
up another speed kill.
Enter the area to the left and walk out onto the small
beam. Jump to the crevice across from the beam and shimmy
to the next small beam. Jump to the next beam and leap
to the area across from it. On the other side, go to
the end of the walkway and wall run on the right wall
then jump to the beam across from the wall while running.
Jump toward either the right or left wall and jump off
the wall to the beam above. Walk toward the middle of
the beam and jump to the room with the fire in the background.
Save your game at the save fountain.
