    Lets tackle the bad points only: The puzzles are too easy, draining victims for a bigger health bar becomes a chore, and the need to build up your health bar means that you will almost never approach a situation stealthily even if you wanted to. On the up side it's a lot easier to hack old games so there's probably a way to give yourself a massive health bar from the beginning.

    Notice that I rated the game highly despite these criticisms, and note the things I didn't complain about: I never once said that the game was boring. It's fun, relaxingly paced, the story is compelling, and the dark atmosphere all make this game a joy to immerse yourself in despite the fact that it's now showing its age.

    On that note I should mention that if the game is crashing and you're running Windows Vista, 7 or 8 on a 64-bit PC: Try setting the affinity for CPU 0 only, rather than both. If you don't know how to do that, Google is your friend!

    Un juego mas de la saga, tampoco es equiparable a los Soul Reaver, buena historia, aunque inferior, sigue la historia de Blood Omen. Protagonista Kain, no tan carismatico como Raziel, y un gameplay divertido.

    After two moderately interesting "Soul Reaver" sequels, the "Legacy of Kain" series ahs finally been stripped of any worthwhile gameplay, storyline, or atmosphere, leaving only a classic example of a dull, unimaginative, soulless game design... Please someone put a stake in the series, because it's done. [Sept 2002, p.80]
  2. It isn't quite as great as fans of the series would like, but it still should be given a shot. It's also worth playing to those lonely for another vampire game or wanting a change of pace from all the first-person shooters.

    The sluggish, redundant, and infamously formulaic combat makes Blood Omen 2 a sloppy action outing, especially when contrasted by the recent brilliance of "Jedi Outcast." And what it fundamentally lacks in this department, it fails to make up for in adventuring.
