Most people would say that this game is so-so. I think it is essential in the Legacy of Kain series. Other than the original Blood Omen that started the classic series, this is the first game that you really get to play as Kain, even though it is in his younger years. It helps fill in some gaps on how Kain came to be. It helps to explain the whole line in Soul Reaver 2 in the end where Kain says "Oh my God, the Hylden." Had no idea wtf he was talking about before this game. In my opinion, awesome game. Sweet special attacks, like myst where you can walk up behind some one and cut their head off or let their guts spill out on the floor depending on the weapon.
