Performance

On average, you can expect between 10 and 20 frames per second. The minimum I got was 5 and the maximum 30 frames per second.

Essential configuration

Go to the game's folder and open the file Hardware.ini with a text editor, set the value of VertexShaders11 to 0.

Settings

Set the resolution to 800x600 (or 1024x600, using the Universal Widescreen Patcher - if the HUD is out of place, exit the game and then start it again, that should fix it).

Then choose high texture quality, medium effects quality, bilinear filtering, no shadows, no water effects and no v-sync.

How much I played

From the beginning of the game to getting the Serpent Sword.

Issues

Mostly against Shadhee I guess, in sequences where you have to mash the attack button repeatedly, having a framerate of 10 or less makes you always lose but if your framerate if above 10 you can win easily.

SHOULD YOU PLAY IT ON A NETBOOK?

YES
Prince of Persia Games are awesome. And the performance on a Netbook doesn't absolutely suck.
