Console games have had a bad reputation on the computer, but the truth is you can find some magnificently well done ports that you really donít care on what it was originally developed. Enter Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, a third-person number that boasts a spooky plot, some interesting twists to gaming conventions, and loads of frenetic action.
You take on the role of Raziel, first-born vampiric son of the evil god Kain. After a millennium of loyal service, Raziel makes the mistake of growing creepy looking bat wings without Daddyís approval. This angers the big guy, and he expresses his displeasure by tossing Raziel into the Lake of the Dead (vampires arenít much for swimming). Centuries later, Raziel is awoken by an unknown Elder God who is upset with the way that Kain has been hogging all the human souls on the world of Nosgoth. He offers Raziel new life if he will promise to use this second chance to kill both his former brethren and Kain.
