    As much as i love the LOK series, Soul Reaver 2 made me a bit sad. The lighting was REALLY bad, Puzzles were way to easy. But there were comebacks. The graphics Amazing for a early 2000s game, Although the game runs a little shorter then the first game it is more linear driven (I wanted to see more of the world) the areas were just beautiful and it really feels like your in the game.

The music, you can only hear it if you pay close attention, because it blends itself SO well with the game. If you are fans of the series will love it, COD fans won't understand it, and Artists will try to draw Raziel and his Soul Reaver. Expand

    It's well rounded, it's improved in marked areas over its predecessor ("The Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver"), and the graphics, sound, and production levels are all high.
  2. The game also sustains virtually no loading times, despite its faithful recreation of a ambient gothic world. Even with the impressive graphics, the game still runs smooth as silk.
  3. A textbook example to other console developers on how to write videogame prose.
