Soul Reaver's sequel is a gorgeous and atmospheric experience that efficiently follows up its predecessor and ties up many loose ends. The gameplay and combat have been improved greatly, though the platforming has taken a back seat in terms of importance. The story wraps up Raziel's individual story well and leads effectively into Defiance. That being said, the element of discovery is lacking as you've seen most of the environments already, and the story, wile good, isn't quite as personally engaging as the original. Overall, it's a great sequel, i just don't think it's quite as excellent as the original.
Third entry in the Legacy of Kain saga, Soul Reaver 2 is still a puzzle-driven action/adventure game. In this quest, Raziel travels back in time and meet the most iconic characters of Nosgoth History. Fight the Sarafan Order, vampire hunters and demons is your new "thing". Soul Reaver 2 is a great game that set most of the pieces for the saga great finale : Defiance. It's a must buy for every fan.
Every successful game (almost) has a sequel. If fact few years later here it comes, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2. The WoW factor (at least for me) it isn't like the first Soul Reaver, but I've really enjoyed this game, I found it a good sequel with nice gameplay additions, and improved graphics. Do yourself a favor (yeah another one, hehe), don't miss this game, or buy the bundle here on greenmangaming, you won't regret a single penny spent on them counting the hours you'll play this franchise even without buying them on sales. Now about the rabidchihuahua's review critic: Dear rabidchihuahua you can't complain about graphics in a game that it's 10/11 years old, really, it's just stupid (not yourself). You pretend that a 11 years old game has Crysis 3 graphics? You see the point I want to make? Every time I read a review of a old game criticizing the graphics I want to beat my head against the wall, really, it's completely unfair. You review a gold game for other reasons, you can't criticize the graphics since OF COURSE it's dated due to the age, even people, you can't compare a 70 years old woman to 20 years girl because it's unfair and undelicate at the start. Sure that a 20 years old girl is more beautiful, a nice body, and so on, but a 70 years old woman can't have the beauty of a 20 years old (well if you see Sophia Loren, a famous italian actress, this comparison it's not right in this case, there are exception in every thing) and the freshness, but she has other things that a 20 years old in any way can't have, for example the experience, the sapience and many other things. So don't treat wrongly a game just because the only "guilt" it has it's being old.
The graphics and music are haunting and deep. It was the story that compelled me to finish the game. I am enamoured by the whole medival story, the drama, torment and romance each character brings. At the end, it leaves you thristing for more.
At the time was the best, now is a classic that should not miss. Has nice story, the fights are entertaining, and has that dark that we like to gamers. Raziel is a great character endowed with personality. Very good in every way.
