Not only do you play the bad guy, but the vampires in the Legacy of Kain series are more likely to talk you to death than get around to chewing on your jugular. Blood Omen 2 is a sequel to the okay-ish original, whose greatest claim to worthiness is that it spawned two much higher quality spin-offs, in the form of Soul Reavers One and Two. The original Blood Omen was a top-down, 2-D, vaguely Zelda-esque action RPG that sold pretty much on the fact that you were the baddie and could run around drinking innocent people's vital fluids. This new game has the same concept but because everything's now in 3-D, it comes across as nothing more than a poor man's Soul Reaver 2. Despite the fact that there's just as much combat in this game as Soul Reaver, you're saddled with a very sluggish control system and the puzzles have been made much less interesting--90% of them involve pulling switches. The game is also incredibly linear and the graphics, although quite detailed in places, are nothing to get excited about. In short, if you're a fan of the Legacy of Kain series buy Soul Reaver 2 instead. If you can take or leave all the vampire nonsense then Tomb Raider is a much better entry in the hall of 3-D adventuring fame. --David Jenkins
