Want To Watch Amy Hennig's First Masterpiece? Then Check Out This Soul Reaver Playthrough

Uncharted fans will be able to see Amy Hennig's influence in this game, especially in the form of excellent dialogue based cutscenes and platforming areas.

Below is the introduction level, featuring the ill-fated Raziel as he is betrayed by his master Kain and thrown into the Abyss. The rest of the playthrough can be viewed at the source.

Such an amazing game. Now I feel the urge to replay it again. :O

It's sad to hear Tony Jay's voice though. It's a shame he won't be able to reprise his role as the Elder God if a new LoK game is ever made. R.I.P.

Although this game nails the atmosphere and tone, it stumbles horribly when it comes to gameplay. It can take hours to find out your next objective, the Silent Cathedral is horribly designed and there are so many annoying block puzzles.

I think the dev team did a lot of experimentation with Soul Reaver, so it wasn't as polished or coherent as other platformer games. SR2 fixed up a lot of that, imo. It was easier to navigate and Raziel usually explained where he needed to go. The puzzles were also better.

With that being said, I think SR's gameplay was alot better than the Tomb Raider series' gameplay...and at the time, everyone was talking about how amazing Tomb Raider's platforming and puzzles were. I thought the gameplay was clunky and awkward. :(

Love this game!
This is also from the same team that does Metal Gear series and the Berserk series. Excellent voice actors.

Now this is one game that deserves a remake / HD upgrade

Xof2844d ago


Just, no.

Why would you even think that?

The Legacy of Kain series needs a conclusion way, way, WAAAY before people even begin to consider bringing up the notion or remakes or HD ports.

Oh of course no doubt about that!!
