Oh man, now that’s a true classic game. Crystal Dynamics’ Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver has been re-released on GoG and is priced at 5.99 euros. As with all GoG titles, Soul Reaver is compatible with both 32bit and 64bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. In case you have not played this classic game, players take the role of Raziel, one of Kain’s lieutenants. Raziel has been “blessed” with something no other vampire has, wings. Kain, being evil and jealous vampire, punished Raziel for this gift. Jealous Kain tore off Raziel’s wings and cast him down into the Lake of the Dead. A millenium has passed while Raziel lay forgotten before he is brought back to existence by The Elder God. He becomes a soul reaver with one purpose and one purpose only: to kill Kain.
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver continues the story from Blood Omen in a very clever and interesting way while also adding many new gameplay features. One of those improvements is the ability to shift between spectral and material plane. Both worlds overlap each other in a way that allows Raziel to overcome obstacles in one world by simply shifting to the other. But beware, because both of those planes are anything but a safe place and something that is harmless on one side can kill you on the other. Soul Reaver is a chapter in a series of masterpieces. With a gripping story, fluent gameplay, and a number so unique features it is clearly one of the most prominent tiles in the gaming history and it is surely worth checking out.
