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: 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!
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 .
Summary: My wife bought this on Friday, it's now Monday. the game has already been completed, with myself and our friend in attendance and lending the occasional hand. Total Playing Time = <10 hours !!!!!!? This is so much less of a game than it's predecessor. It is, admittedly, beautiful and brilliantly written like a super-stylish fantasy film but that is its problem.
Summary: Oh dear, what happened. There I was playing and I noticed something strange. No secrect areas, No bosses ( except a few simple demons the soul reaver can take care of), and no forks in the road. I mean the original game was vast. The bosses had imagination put into them, take the first boss where you had to lure him under some rusty gates then mince him. It just seems small, petite, not GRAND.
