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

Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB Performance Review

The experience of playing Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame through a 3 year old Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB is going to return a consistently high 140 frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

Playing Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 45 frames per second at that top scale resolution.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB card will play Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 45 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 76 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 100 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $3.99, 1440p costs $5.25 and 4K costs $8.87.
