Blood Omen 2

Game Description: You are the vampire Kain, the most evil figure ever to appear in a video game. Cloaked in stealth, you will move through crowds unseen, travel stories above the peasant herds on which you feed—leaping from rooftop to rooftop—and use mind control to overcome vampire-proof inventions. The combat choreography in Blood Omen 2 unfolds with dancelike precision as Kain engages armies of demons and humans alike.

Blood Omen 2 – Review

While being a reviewer isnt always easy, sometimes its even tougher when youre also a fan. Its our job to look at games objectively, but were still human. We all have our preferences and tastes, and theres nothing more miserable than seeing a series you love go down the drain with a rotten sequel. As if that wasnt painful enough, reviewing such a game forces you to thoroughly examine every single aspect of it, instead of having the luxury of deluding yourself into thinking it really isnt all that bad.

Blood Omen 2 – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

Mad Maestro! – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Violence

Mad Maestro! – Second Opinion

Despite my relatively low scoring for Mad Maestro!, I actually liked it. Perhaps it was the offbeat nature of the premise or maybe Im just a sucker for cutesy Japanese games, but I definitely liked it. While writing this review, I was originally going to give it at least a point or two more, but when I sat down and took a good, hard look at the game, I couldnt really find justification for scoring it any higher than I did.

Mad Maestro! – Review

When it was announced that Mad Maestro! was going to see release outside of Japan, there was a fair amount of head-scratching in industry circles. While its true that Mad Maestro! is a music game, and music games are experiencing a steady rise in population, what really strikes a chord of wonder is that Mad Maestro! centers around classical music.

Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver 2 – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence

Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver 2 – Review

Sometimes great games have bad stories, and sometimes great stories accompany bad games. However, I have never seen this distinction become more acute than with Soul Reaver 2 for PlayStation 2, Crystal Dynamic's long awaited sequel (actually third in the Legacy Of Kain series) to their 1999 vampire epic.

Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver 2 – Second Opinion

I think Matt did a great job pointing out the good versus the bad in Soul Reaver 2, so there's no need for me to elaborate on any of that. But I would like to expound one of his points—the balance between story and game, which is Soul Reaver 2's most glaring flaw.
