Trivia

At the end of the game, there was an alternative text for the argument between Mortanius and Anacrothe at the Pillars. In this version, when Anacrothe accuses him of being the circle's traitor, Mortanius more extensively explains his motives and admits to killing Ariel, whereas in the final version of the game, her murderer is left a mystery.

Quotes

[false ending]
Ariel: In his life, he was unknown... a petty noble. In death, he was unknown. Yet by choosing oblivion, he restored Balance to the land. Shades cast, no shadows.

God Dammit! the best game ever!
5 October 2003 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

The legacy of Kain Series is by far the best you can get! It is awesome!!! You just HAVE to play this game (Blood Omen). It's the very beginning of an excellent series. Worth buying it, I tell you. Although graphics are a little dated (the game is 2D), it does have direct3D lightning effects and such, and the game accomplishes giving each scenario its unique atmosphere. The great thing about this series is that there's a lot of background story, you'll be amazed. The story is compelling and you'll find yourself wanting to know more. Blood Omen is the game that started it all. Your best bet is to find it on ebay. You won't regret buying it.
