What Gamespot Users have to say about Blood Omen 2

    The Legacy of Kain series has an interesting past behind it. What started out as an isometric hack and slash game by Silicon Knights and Crystal Dynamics, spawned off into the Soul Reaver series by a different team and ... Read Full Review

    And if you thought Soul Reaver 2 was a rushjob, wait til you see this. Blood Omen 2 does not do its predecessor any justice. Even long-time Kain fans will be sorely disappointed with the way Blood Omen 2 turned out. T... Read Full Review

    Though convoluted in story, BO2 is a satisfying action game.

    I liked BO2, don't get me wrong, but it is a tough game to wrap your brain around. If you're unfamiliar with the LoK series, this shouldn't be the first in the series to play. Or maybe it is, since the story pretty muc... Read Full Review

    The omen has gone nuts

    Might, tall, evil, gorgeous. Such is Kain. Main character of what is one of the best vampire series ever. But every series has it's bad seasons... Blood Omen 2 takes place right after Blood Omen ends, in other words, ju... Read Full Review

    Unsatisfactory... Below average.

    If you have played Soul Reaver 2, dont buy this game. If you like Kain a lot, go ahead and try it just for the love of sucking blood from innocent citizens. Game play is below average. Graphics and sounds are alright. T... Read Full Review

    One of my favorites. Yet, it is HARD!

    Blood Omen 2. What a game. Yet,. when I first played it on the Gamecube, I took the disc and snapped it in two because of the utter frustration of one of its puzzles. Let's rate this amazing work from Eidos. Story: T... Read Full Review

    An extremely fun game...but there ARE flaws. Very very sad flaws (Warning...long read.)

    To be honest I would rather do Reviews to games I KNOW are 100% Good. Plus its easy because I have my own tastes in games and I can explain why I like them so much. And I am not saying this isn't a fun game ( have yet to... Read Full Review

    Vampire fans or Kain fans wont even find this game enjoyable.

    The Legacy of Kain series: known for its great story, superb voice acting, and the outstanding Kain himself. Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain was the first game that featured Kain himself, voiced by Simon Templeman. It was r... Read Full Review
