Preview - Legacy of Kain: "Blood Omen 2

Sometimes it's more fun being bad than good, and no one is worse than Kain - the master vampire from Blood Omen, released in 1997 - who chose to rule the world of Nosgoth through terror rather than die for its salvation. It's 100 years later in this action/adventure sequel to Omen (Legacy of Kain was an offshoot, not a sequel), and a mysterious force has stripped Kain of his powers and killed his vampires. Playing as Kain in the third person, you'll have to stay in the shadows of the Gothic landscape as you rebuild your supernatural powers to reclaim your dark rule.

Blood Omen 2 promises a deep world with smart characters and fast yet precise fighting controls. Kain will be able to sneak up behind hapless humans and ravage them for their blood or dispatch them with a sword, but you must be careful - if the human prey sees the gruesome vampire coming, they'll run away shrieking for help. The plasma will flow again when this game rises from the dead.
