European versionIn the European version, sand monsters can't be cut in half or lose their head.
ReferencesShortly after meeting Farah for the first time, the Prince talks to himself, wondering why she doesn't remember him (from the first game). The Dark Prince responds to him that they are better off without her: "Perhaps a few arrows in the back might remind you."
This is a reference to the first game that the developers stuck in. Farah was notorious for "helping" in combat by shooting arrows at everyone, including you.
Or as others have called it, she uses a "Bow of Friendly Fire."
Wii versionUnlike the other platforms, the Wii version has an ESRB Teen rating because the bloody sequences have been toned down. Enemies bleed sand instead of blood.
