Summary: As a fan of the first game back when it hit the PSX, I was eager to play the sequel. I never got the opportunity until nearly a decade later, and now that I have I'm honestly taken aback by how little fun I had with it. Save for marginally better graphics and puzzles that have been shifted by and large away from the banal block-pushing puzzles of the first game, Soul Reaver 2 is functionally indentical to the first.
Summary: What a huge disappointment. I loved Soul Reaver for PS, but this one is not worth it. There is nothing to recommend this game, apart from a Byzantine and contradictory story line, declaimed in junior-high-school-production-of-Shakespeare scenery chewing polysyllables -- and that is only fun because it's amusing to imitate. ("Alas, Raziel, you foolish and gullible puppet, your quest here is a futile exercise!" Well, that's what I thought, anyway.
Summary: One of the worst games i've ever played, the sound effects are awful, the combat is clunky and too easy, you can run past enemies easily and the puzzles are tedious, plus the game has no collectables besides the elemental soul reavers and it is very linear. It is an absolute waste of time and serves no purpose, it may as well just been a movie for the game play is utter garbage, sorry it's not one of my most in depth reviews for i got bored very quickly and based on what...
Summary: I recently purchased this game from Amazon, having really enjoyed SR1. I've now been playing SR2 for (playing time) a couple of hours and can't really remember having played a more frustrating, infuriating game. If you like your graphics too dark to actually see anything and you love going round in circles endlessly, then you'll love this game.
