I'm currently stuck in "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" (Xbox) and was wondering if any of you could provide some help. I'm currently at the part where you fight the first level boss consisting of Farrah's father and a couple of his buddies. The problems I'm facing are: 1. I'm able to enter the boss room with full health. 2. Even though there is a water pool (for health) on the other side of the room, I can't use it after being hit. The Prince slowly walks backwards towards it (instead of running like a normal person would) because there are enemies nearby and he wants to be in a defensive mode. Whenever I am able to run, I can only do so for about a second because the enemies teleport into my path towards the water and I end up walking again (after losing more health). Whenever I do end up in the water, I usually can't drink it because R1 (the button to drink) is the same button as a defensive stance. So, instead of drinking, I end up standing there in the water with my daggar in the air. When I am sometimes able to drink, about five guys start slicing me up with spears, I cannot fight back and end up dead. Therefore, the water pool might as well not exist. 2. When the fight starts, there are five enemies - two red ones, two blue ones, and her father. Even though I can kill at least three of the red and blue enemies, they always reappear - even though I have "sucked" the sand from them. Also, whenever I am sucking the sand from them, the remaining guys come over and kill me. 3. If I am able to last long enough, Farrah gets killed anyway because she just stands there and gets hacked away at by the enemies instead of actually fighting back. When she dies, so do I. I've read a number of great reviews on this game which state that the enemies are pretty easy to defeat. So far, I'm finding this game harder than Ninja Gaiden. Some of you must have beaten this game, and I'm curious how you got past this point. I'm willing to give it a little more time, but not much. I don't have as much free time to devote to gaming nowadays and games like this are becoming a waste of time when others like "Far Cry" and "The Chronicles of Riddick" are out there screaming to be played.
