Trivia

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.

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.
