A look back at the PS1/Dreamcast classic Soul Reaver and the Legacy of Kain series as a whole and how it holds up to day
I have this on the dreamcast, it is awesome
I would be keen if there was a HD compilation
I think an HD collection is unlikely.. though not impossible for the 2 Soul Reaver games and Defience.. even Blood Omen 2 could be easily HD updated but the blood omen would probably be the hard one to update.. I think it was all pre rendered sprites, not 3d. But I'd definatly buy that collection!
I did, when it came out and several time post. What are my options now?
You should really consider playing "Soul Reaver 2," I think.
I played that game way back on ps1 I think. It was pretty awsome, it was always one that I wondered why it didnt get a reboot. Well, if there were any follow ups to this I never heard of them anyway.
Soul Reaver was wicked, I still remember that cool FMV intro too. My favourite part was when you shifted between two worlds, the whole world would bend and distort in front of you which was pretty impressive for the PS1!
Reboot this game plzzz...
The whole Legacy of Kain series is a pretty special brand that is in dire need of some updated TLC. I'd stay away from Raziel for at least 2 or 3 titles and tell really spin Kain's tale. I loved the first one and even still have my copy but admittedly I was more than a little disappointed when the Soul Reaver series came out because I wanted to be in control of Kain.
Great game. Could have a reboot
I used to over this on dreamcast. Too bad the video is showing the lower resolution ps1 version. It looked so much smoother on dreamcast.
GreAt games but I always loved the original legacy of kain blood omen best. Great top down action rpg. Turning into bat, wolf and mist was so cool. And the cgi was amazing at the time. Vae victis
Never liked it.
gameplay wise perhaps not the most creative but story and character development, sounds and art direction is as mature as it gets in gaming or in any other media, Legacy of Kain qualities are unlike anything else. a timeless classic in my dusty old book, everything from Amy Hennig is so far.
A reboot would be highly welcome. Should have rough graphics and be heavy with particle effects to boot.
Dude this is the best sh*z ever...Amy Henning did an incredible job at this one. I also loved defiance that came after this. The way that story ended, man.., I got so into the characters of both Raziel and Kain. Incredible!!! They seriously need to do something about this franchise.
Soul Reaver is an awesome game, Raziel is one of the best videogame characters ever, & I am only disappointed I never finished this game. I played through a fair chunk of it, but just ended up with so many great games on PS1, that I never got back to it when I got stuck on a bit. I would love a new one that recaptures how great the PS1 game was, as it is simply too hard to look at games on 2 going on 3 gen, old hardware now.
