  1. With its amazing sound work, stunning musical score and easy to use control scheme, about the only thing you can complain about in this release is the length.
  2. 89
    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.

    Quite engrossing. [Dec 2001, p.91]

    It will charm the pants off you and spectators if you're fan of the series.
  5. Soul Reaver 2 has some excellent moments, carried through with superb narrative, an excellent story and some stunning visuals, however it’s just not enough for me anymore…

    Yes, at times it can be frustrating with its meandering, endless execution, but few titles can match its eerie atmosphere. [Jan 2002, p.81]

    As an aesthetic showcase, SR2 triumphs, but the mediocre gameplay will only appeal to fans of the first game. [Jan 2002, p.218]

    I haven't beat it, but so far the game seems great. The only thing that makes me mad about the game is the damn swimming controls. After I haven't beat it, but so far the game seems great. The only thing that makes me mad about the game is the damn swimming controls. After a while you get used to it though. I waited for this for a while after playing SR1, the game was everything I expected. Great graphics, voiceovers are good. Another thing that is okay but not great about the cutscreens on ps2 is that you spend most of your time usually watcing them. But I give it a 9. Expand

    Muito bom. Uma boa evolução de jogabilidade e de câmera, que deixava um pouco a desejar no primeiro Soul Reaver.

    If you liked the first game, you'll love this. The puzzles, the gameplay, the sound, they're all really good in this game. Although If you liked the first game, you'll love this.
