Summary: Blood Omen 2 is a good game overall, which is hard to find these days. The story is intriguing and the characters are interesting. Let's break this game down: GRAPHICS: I give the graphics 3 out of 5 because I don't believe the graphics are to the standard we expect of an X BOX game. The graphics don't look much different than the PSX.
Summary: I'm sure there are many gamers out there who, with enough imagination, will find something wrong to say with any x-box game. I'm not one of those people. I found the game really fun, and I recommend this game to any one who likes games who are challenging but accessible. I'm sure some will find that this description doesn't deserve à Five star rating, and maybe they are right. But the truth is I wish more reviews were more honest (from the heart) and less technical.
Summary: I started the SR series with Legacy of Kain (SR2). I was sadly disappointed in Blood Omen 2, which has none of the ingenuity or artistry of the SR series. So I settled in for an action game, and was disappointed in the fighting engine (very tricky, and often results in your character getting killed from behind). Halfway through the game, emphasis seems to switch from action to lever-pulling, as you have a series of nonsensical puzzles to solve.
Summary: The Blood Omen series is very different from its sister series Soul Reaver (which I highly recommend). Don't get me wrong, this game is pretty cool at times. But I have a hard time getting past the lame combat system ( you have to hold down the left trigger and then press ONE button to attack). The blood drinking is cool, but the meter gets annoying. You have to constantly drink blood or the meter will run out and you'll die.
Summary: Kain is back to reclaim the high throne! Cast down from power by a mysterious warlord centuries ago, Kain reawakens in a world he barley regonizes. His armies slain, his vampire brethen nearly extinct, Kain is one of the last of his kind. With an agenda of vegence, Kain shall unleash a wicked wrath to uncover the plot that threatens the land he seeks to conquer. Execute fierce and brutal combos with battle-axes, swords and other heavy metal weaponry.
A good game, though the first Blood Omen was better

Summary: Kain finally returns in Blood Omen 2, but this latest installment in the series is missing some of what made the first Legacy of Kain such an enjoyable game. Gameplay is very straightforward. Kain must progress through the world of Nosgoth by killing his enemies and solving puzzles. This is where some of the problems come in. Combat is all right, but Kain has very few options available to him. Attack, block, grab, and that's it.
Summary: Blood Omen 2 boasts incredible graphics, great scenery, well designed enemies, an excellent combat and ability system, a great base story, and some of the most frightening images ever to grace a game. Unfortunately, it also boasts plot holes big enough to drive a truck through for the Legacy of Kain series officianado, ridiculous glitches that have no place in games of today; like enemies backing into, or falling dead into, walls, and the inexplicable inability to toss...
Summary: Much of what I'm about to say has probably been covered by others, but I'll try my best to make things concise. This game could have been quite good, but unfortunately has major flaws that make it more annoying than anything else. I found some difficulty with the controls. While all games require an adjustment period to get used to the new controls, these are combersome no matter what.
