oooo tough choice really :eek: cos there all good!!

I had to go with Blood Omen 2 cos I liked the dark gifts, and the different outfits Kain wore and the different areas too :)

I would have gone for Soul Reaver 2 but I didn't like the way you kept going back and forth over the same areas but in different times :(

Blood Omen. Good story, decent gameplay, and hours and hours of fun. (Not to mention that it's the reason why we're all here today). ;)

The coolest? Now, that's a difficult one.
Now, the best LOK game is Blood Omen but the coolest...

*thinks*

Sorry, but I really don't think of the LOK series in terms of cool. But I do think of it in terms of great, amazing, dramatic, gripping, tentative, etc. but not cool

Without a doubt, Soul Reaver 2. It was absolutely enthralling - especially the end!http://www.imagemagician.com/images/rook/wayfarer/eek.gif

I think Soul Reaver was the best of the series, I mean, Look at it. Its long game, has really cool move, and at the same time you run with a little blue guy (same with SR2 but this ones better). Although the graphic arent the best, i dont care cuz its the best one. It has the brothers wich is very cool. You get the abilities for the 1st time and you see how Raziel gets them, and even how he obtained the Wraith Blade.

Soo i go with Soul Reaver, One of the best games ive played...

I have to agree with them, Soulreaver is da bomb. First of all, I loved the story (coming back for those who seek your demise), the non-linear gameplay, dispatching enemies with your weapon of choice and the cutscenes of you taking your brothers' souls. This is the game that got me hooked on the series and the graphics to me were more than okay. :p

And the ending of SR1... tell me that didn't send any of you racing to CD, asking the release date for SR2. :D

Can I get an Amen... ?

SR2 for me.

Superior voice-over, gorgeous scenery, amazing puzzles even though the combat was lackluster. Plus it was my first game in the series. :D

And after playing the PC version and finding out about the PS2 extras, it's what compelled me to get a PS2. And that's how I first saw the SR1 intro. -drool-

I liked them all, but SR2 is the one for me.

SR2, for many of the same reasons Roxy just said. Except I started on SR. The quality of the voice acting is phenomenal... it's the best game in the series graphically... And no darned blocks! :p

I think Soul Reaver is the best game.


I think Sr2 is a shadow of what it could have been, I cant vote for that game even though I probably like it the best.

Here's hoping that Raz will encounter few block puzzles in Defiance.http://smilies.networkessence.net/s/otn/party/beerchug.gif

Amen to that! :D

I can see it now... escaping the hellish maze of the Underworld...

ELDER: Raziel... for defying me... you must arrange these forty blocks into the correct mural or you will never escape...

That is a good point, warp.

SR is a good game, but it's my least favorite in the series. Looking back on it, it's a bit repetative with the curse of the block puzzles, and tediously long, drawn out & boring at times. It's good for a replay now and then, but I could've been content with completing it once. **shrugs**

No one said it didn't have it's share of problems, but what it lacked in creativity with puzzles, I think it more than made up for in it's combat, story and everything else.

Besides, I don't think Blood Omen was that good a game :p

As I said, it was a good game, just not my favorite. (Nor is it the best thing I have ever played). The combat wasn't all that great and the story was good, just a little dragged out in parts. Sorry, but running around Nosgoth for hours on end, doing very little in the process, just isn't that exciting to me.

I'm sure that it has nothing to do with the fact no one has played it (in it's final released glory) yet. :rolleyes: :p ;)

if it was favorite in the series I'd go with SR2, but since it's coolest imma have to go with SR... I like the glyph spells, even if they don't get used that often (atleast i don't use them much) and the fact that it has the cool (in my opinion) boss fights... :)

Hey, no boots=no dice. It could've ended the poll right there with boots thrown in or a confirmed VV for old times' sake. Really, a shame.

So far Soul Reaver 2. the first was good , but SR2 took it to a whole new level.

It's a toughie... SR1 that game is the reason i'm still playing today. It had such a compelling story and i was sooooooo furious when it ended with to be continued :) I liked the landscape of SR1 in a world falling to pieces. SR2 had alot more thought put into the story and nicer graphics but i loved the idea of chasing Kain across the landscape and feeding on your brothers souls. SR2 was basicly chase Kain for 5 minutes then get confused at why you let him live, then spend the rest of the game running away from him 'cause he bugs you :D

The Blood Omen games were good but i'm a Raziel fan in the end. I like the idea behind him.

Oh its got to be said, i liked the block puzzles and really there wasn't that many of them. Most of the bigger ones were optional for extra goodies and you didn't have to bother with them if you couldn't be bothered. :)
