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

    There is a certain "been there, done that" feel that weighs everything down. That, plus a few significant design miscues, make for a game that comes up a wee bit short when compared to the often outstanding original.

    SR2 might stop you from using monosyllabic words, but I wouldn’t recommend picking it up for an action-packed gaming session. [Mar 2002, p.81]

    Soul Reaver 2 is a truly sublime plunge in a world so complicated it'll make your head pound. That said the plot, the story, the voice-actingSoul Reaver 2 is a truly sublime plunge in a world so complicated it'll make your head pound. 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!!! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game has an amazing and hard story, merged with great gameplay and soundtracks, which make, of this, another great game in the Legacy of Kain series.
    Somehow, this game makes you so satisfied when you finish the Soul Reaver's "expansion" that you feel very happy and very sorry when you complete the game, because you wanted it to last even more.
