Excerpt: Kain is back and he has over 200 years of beauty sleep under his belt, but believe me, he ain't any prettier. He's still that blood-sucking, crate pushing, Nosgoth-dwelling, bleeding-heart romantic that we all know and love.
Excerpt: When I was little, I used to imagine that the ground was a boiling pit of acid that would eat me alive if I touched it. I’d jump from rock to rock, breathing a sigh of relief each time I delayed my untimely demise. Eventually, I’d fall. Then the game was over, except I’d play again.
Excerpt: Story: Blood Omen 2 is the fourth game in the Legacy of Kain series, but it's story takes place after the settings of the first game, 400 years after to be precise. After destroying the Pillars at the end of Blood Omen , Kain proceeded to amass a vampire army to rule over Nosgoth.
Pros: Graphics convey a great dark atmosphere, Voice Acting is excellent, Story is well written
Cons: Minor Glitches (sound skipping, occasional slowdown), Save System
Conclusion: If the weaker puzzle element is going to bother you opt for Soul Reaver 2. If you are not confused by the thought that a blood-sucking vampire can save the world this substantial adventure will take some time to play so you are definitely getting value for money.
Excerpt: Crystal Dynamics' fourth foray into the land of Nosgoth may be the best, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have plenty of problems. Come read what should be the largest and most detailed review on the web.
Excerpt: Since its inception in 1995, the Legacy of Kain series has been one of the more satisfying adult action/adventure series on the market. The series launched with the tale of the nobleman Kain, brutally murdered only to rise from the grave as a vampire, exacting his revenge on his slayers.
Conclusion: <i>Blood Omen 2</i> bringt <i>Crystal Dymamic´s</i> Vampir Saga konsequent weiter voran. Nachdem ich schon von <i>Soul Reaver 2</i> absolut begeistert war, konnte mich auch Kains neustes Abenteuer überzeugen.
