Did You Know?


In an earlier stage of development, the part where human Kain fights back unknown attackers and then gets murdered, was depicted by a CGI video (like the ones in the rest of the game). In this version, human Kain is blond, because they had not yet decided to give him black hair as a human. Later, that video was replaced with a playable version of the attack and murder of Kain, because it didn't turn out as well as they had intended. The video was never included in the released disc and got lost forever in the vaults of Silicon Knights, with only a few screenshots of it being released in some early promotional material of that time.

[after Vorador's execution]
Executioner: We are free of this unholy scourge!
Moebius: Not yet, my friend. Would you be free of a plague if only one city was cleansed?
Crowd: No! No!
Moebius: Would you spare one wolf in the pack that has devastated your herd?
Crowd: No!
Moebius: Then let us destroy them all!
Crowd: Yes!
Moebius: [points at Kain] He is the last! Destroy him!

This has to be the best vampire game of all time!
17 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

This has to be if not the best vampire game of all time.Simon Templeman voice of Kain was brilliant.The voice acting was top notch.Even the storyline was pretty damn good.When you first play this video game you probbaly do not wanna play it in the dark.The intro is good to.Its all about a vampire name Kain.He was human but his assaliants killed him.He went down to hell and he got turned into a vampire.And then he went into a hatred where he will kill all is assailiants,he goes on a rampage and meets up with a spirit where he has to replace all 8 pillars by doing that he has to fight all 8 bosses,you can turn into a wolf,bat and alot of other things.The spells,armors and swords are all fantastic.Thats far as im gonna go.If your into a great and interesting vampire game Blood Omen Legacy Of Kain is on top of the list!
