Somewhere in Arabian Nights-style Persia… You are a young lad who's been imprisoned in a dungeon by the wicked hand of Jaffar the Sorcerer who also happens to be the missing Sultan's unfaithful Grand Vizier, wishing covetously to take the ruler's place by marrying his unwilling daughter, who also happens to be your soulmate. Having thus disposed of you, lest you meddle with his evil plans for coup d'etat, he locks the princess in the castle tower and threatens to kill her if she keeps refusing him. It's up to you now to save the princess from impending doom, defeat Jaffar and finally bring peace to the kingdom of Persia. But first you need to help yourself out of this stinking place full of dreadful traps, pitfalls and certain unfriendly figures, and all you got is… precisely 1 hour!

Regarding realistic sword combat in computer games, what do you think of Die by the Sword?

Never really played it nor remember the name, but just watched a bit of it on youtube. Well, what can i say... the physics there seem to suffer somewhat. Surely, POP fight scenes only looked good for its own time, but that one... can't say it's any different from many other ones i've seen whose names i never properly register :)

I've never played it, either. Just sprang into my mind when I read the thing about realistic swordfighting, as I remember the reviews at the time being quite enthusiastic in this respect.
