Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Cast down from power by a mysterious warlord centuries ago, Kain reawakens in a world he barely recognises. His armies slain, his vampire brethren nearly extinct, Kain is one of the last of his kind. With an agenda of vengeance, Kain shall unleash a wicked wrath to uncover the plot that threatens the land he seeks to conquer.
Execute fierce attacks and brutal combos with battle-axes, swords and other heavy metal weaponry.
When weapon edges dull on bone and steel, turn to your Dark Gifts such as berserk and stealth to exact your lethal will.
In pursuit of power or just for the thrill of the kill, Kain’s lust for blood is inspiring.
Lead Kain through highly detailed environments of gothic nightmare; host to thieves, knights and demons of all sorts.

I think the greatest praise I can give this game is that it has managed to not age too badly. Kain's character has some excellent dialogue, and the game's setting has a surprising amount of depth, given its linearity.
The combat can get a little rinse-and-repeat, but the the series's staple use of enemy weapons can keep things reasonably fresh. The puzzles are also quite straightforward, but I felt they were there more for pacing than to provide a real intellectual challenge, so in that sense they work well.
I would say for the price it is going for these days, this game is good value for money, and worth your time.
