    A delight on the senses...it's pretty damn fun to play.
  3. Soul Reaver was a very fun game, but I'm delighted to say that Crystal Dynamics' Soul Reaver 2 is more mature, imaginative, complex, and ultimately more fun than the original.
  4. The unique play mechanics of Soul Reaver 2, as well as its impressive graphics and excellent story, make it easy to recommend to fans of action or adventure games.

    The graphics are lush without being garish, and the music is haunting and evocative. [Mar 2002, p.61]

That said the plot, the story, the voice-acting and the lush visuals are all spot on however the control scheme and the constant backtracking may be appalling to some. Highly recommended for fans of the series!!! Full Review »
