Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame packshot image
Similar to the first Prince of Persia, the character explores various deadly areas by running, jumping, crawling, avoiding traps, solving puzzles and drinking magic potions. Prince of Persia 2 is, however, more combat-heavy than its predecessor. In the first game, enemies appear only occasionally and are always alone, while in the sequel, up to four enemies may appear at once, sometimes flanking the player, and may even be instantly replaced by reinforcements when they are killed. As in Prince of Persia, the trick is to complete the game under a strict time limit that passes in real time. Lives are unlimited, but time cannot be regained except by reverting to a previously saved game. In other areas, more significant improvements have been made. The graphics are far more complex than the simple look of the game's predecessor, the areas explored are larger, and the variety of backdrops is greater.

Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame

GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 970 4GB Performance Review

Booting up Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame with the 6 year old GeForce GTX 970 4GB looks like it will get a very strong 140 FPS. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

When looking at the recommended requirements for Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame we can see that this GeForce GTX 970 4GB is far better served running it on Ultra even at 4K, where it would achieve 45FPS. But it could cost around $7.33 per FPS at 4K. Compare this to Ultra 1440p, which is a more reasonable $4.34 per FPS.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 970 4GB solution can play Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 45 frame rate, whereby we see 76 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 100 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $3.30, 1440p costs $4.34 and 4K costs $7.33.
