Summary

An amazing piece of game with stunning graphics...

The Good

The game's Graphical Programming is quite advanced compared to the last game. The added Extras at the end of the game are very funny and the artwork is amazing. The fun during game play is Raziel's new found sense of humor, and his brother-like relationship with Kain is interesting. If anyone liked the last game, then I strongly recommend this game, it is also good for those who want a more involved RPG to play.

The Bad

The main let down of this game, for me, was the poor story line, and after the reviews that I had read in magazines, the main play graphics were annoying. I think the game's playing graphics are about the same as Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.

The Bottom Line

In brief this game is an amazing piece of work. The main story-line is about a young Vampire forced by a half-truthed revenge on his lord, who is lead into the past and is again mis-lead by the devious Moebius. Kain of course creates a paradox by bringing the two Reavers together.... the world lies on the edge of a knife as Raziel tries to over-power the Reaver to find out more of his past. The finale is a repeat of an earlier FMV, Raziel, caught between life and death, is forced to over-power the reaver, after killing his human self, he is again faced and caused to kill his vampire self. As Kain gives a warning we are left with a cliff-hanger as Raziel slips into the Spectral Realm to recover and continue this story in Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver 3.

Buy the Game to find out the entire story and to meet the Saraphan and find the truth about Moebius, Kain, Ariel and Raziel's bretheren.
