In the time of the Blood Omen, Kain, a nobleman-turned-vampire, killed the members of the Circle of Nine, until he had to choose between his death and the salvation of Nosgoth. Or his life and the continuation of the Vampire race. He chose to live and took control of Nosgoth. After a millennium, Kain's lieutenant and right-hand man, Raziel, evolved faster than Kain. For his transgression, Raziel was cast into the lake of the dead where he endured an eternity of suffering. Raziel was destroyed as a vampire but reborn as a Wraith. Now Raziel has returned to Nosgoth to destroy his brethren, and take his vengeance out on Kain. Written by J Hoffman/R.Keys

Great gaming fun
28 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a rare game in that it doesn't have much replay value as it is a completely linear game, but I still love coming back and playing it over and over again. The storyline is great, the voice acting is impeccable, the dialogue is profoundly eloquent and the level designs are amazing, they complement each other perfectly. The drawback to this game is that there are many block puzzles that are too numerous, tedious and a little tiresome after a while. There is a noticeable emphasis on using the environment to defeat enemies which is a little something that games need a little bit more of. But you should give this game definite consideration to adding it to your game library.
