Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen 2

Four hundred years have passed since the evil vampire Kain damned the world in the original Blood Omen, choosing to rule the world in damnation rather than die for its salvation. Now Kain, who once controlled the land of Nosgoth with his vampire armies, returns to find his brethren slain and his dark powers stripped by a mysterious figure. To reclaim his rule and exact his vengeance, Kain must overcome legions of demons and dispatch armies of zealot soldiers in order to uncover the ominous plot that threatens the land he seeks to conquer.

Blood Omen 2, the latest instalment in the Legacy of Kain Series, is a mission-based action game with a focus on combat and stealth. An engrossing story drives the player through huge lushly detailed 3D environments. Kain starts the game with two supernatural abilities: “Mist” which shrouds Kain in mist enabling him to hide from his enemies, and “Fury” which is a combat special attack. Kain can then acquire new abilities by defeating the corresponding boss enemy that has that ability. For example when Kain kills the boss that uses a jumping ability to attack, Kain then gains the ‘Super-Jump’ ability enabling him to access treacherous new areas of Nosgoth.

Blood Omen 2 boasts an advanced artificial intelligence system that determines how characters in the game react to Kain. The inhabitants of Nosgoth react to Kain according to how he interacts with them and also according to how he has behaved up to that point in the game. If Kain mindlessly attacks people, this will attract unwanted attention, if he moves stealthily through the shadows the longer it will take for people to realise he is a vampire
