Summary: I got this game effectively for free when I traded in Lego Batman. It was cheap and got good reviews. It's a well put together product, but has some issues that hurt it. The biggest thing wrong with this game is the save points. You cannot save anywhere you like, only at certain shrines. Normally that's not a big deal, but in a couple sections of the game you'll literally go two to three hours without a save point.
Would be a stellar game if not for some major issues...

Summary: What you have here is possibly, the most wasted potential classic on the PS2!. Oh my god, this game, from the start is flippin' sweet!. Good graphics, great gameplay(story-wise), awsome gothic atmosphere, and for once, a camera that isn't problematic(Since it stays behind Raziel)(Put's Castlevania:LOI to shame)...and then from there, it's downhill.
Summary: This game looked promising, and it was inexpensive so I took a chance. It's an okay game: the graphics are good but not amazing, the storyline is okay, etc. I just really didn't get hooked on it the way I did with Devil May Cry, the Final Fantasys, and others. I also didn't play the first one, though it is not necessary to pick up on the story. If you like the first one, then you'll probably like this, otherwise I would say spend your money elsewhere.
Summary: I love the Blood Omen series. This game plays almost EXACTly like the first Soul Reaver, so the controls should be really firmilar. Everything looks great, and the sound and voice-over acting is top-notch. If there was a criticism to be placed anywhere, I thought the game was really on the shorter side. I honestly think it took me less then a week to wrap it up.
Summary: I enjoyed this game more for it's graphics and dialog more than it's actual gameplay. And I must say it was far too short. Soul Reaver for PSX was longer and you were more involved in the story. There was excitement and antcipation for a sequel that just confuses me and seems very rushed. They should maybe redo this came and call it a second edition or something. As it stands it was a bit of a disappointment. Great voice acting though!
Summary: i am a die hard soul reaver fan. when the first one came out on the playstation it was my favourate game and i enjoyed playing it over and over again.As for soul reaver 2 it started off very well but then it started to bore the hell out of me because all you do in the game is go back and forth back and forth over and over again with nothing new to discover other than to change your reaver into a different colour.another thing that really pissed me off is that it had no...
Summary: Well, I finally got the third installment of the soap opera that is the Legacy of Kain. Here, Raziel continues his pursuit of the enigmatic Kain, but begins to doubt the true intentions of his benefactor, the Elder God. Finally, we are introduced to the great vampire, Janos Audron, referenced heavily in the original Blood Omen... However, Soul Reaver 2 seems more intent on displaying the voice talents of their (very impressive!
A sequel with significant advances on its predecessor but with its own major problems

Excerpt: Did you play through hours and hours and hours of exceedingly difficult boss fights and the lengthy puzzles of Soul Reaver only to practically tear the game apart when met by the least wanted game ending ever... 'To Be Continued?' 'Cos I certainly did. I mean seriously, what game doesn't give you an ending in favour of 'to be continued?!' But good news! It continued! And two years wasn't too much of a wait and it was certainly worth it.
Summary: Soul Reaver 2 feels more like an expansion pack than a complete sequel. The PS2 delivers some high-quality textures making some parts look pre-rendered, and a few new flashy effects. But it looks very much like the same engine chugging away underneath. The voice acting is pure quality just as in the first game, but its totally wasted on the rubbish plot.
Summary: I have to say that I rushed out as soon as the game became available and couldn't wait to get cracking as I had enjoyed Soul Reaver so much . I now have to say that there are far too many movie clips to keep the story together and , although the game play itself is brilliant , it is over far too quickly for me .
