ABSTRACT

Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain and the rest of the Legacy of Kain series can best be thought of as cult classics. Known for their dark and brooding tone, excellent voice acting, and twisting story, the games were often called RPGs, even though the gameplay itself places them more squarely in the action or actionadventure genre. Although the dark, violent, and occasionally problematic gameplay kept the series from achieving widespread success, the Legacy of Kain games – particularly Blood Omen and Soul Reaver – still maintain a devoted fan following.
