...even though Blood Omen 2 doesn't measure up to its predecessors, it's a game worth playing.
I rented Blood Omen 2, and put the game in the PS2. My initial impression was not favorable. I thought at best this game deserves a 7/10. However, to see it through I finished the game. And even though Blood Omen 2 doesn't measure up to its predecessors, it's a game worth playing.
Well, let's get into the knitty gritty of this game, and disect it :)
As far as gameplay, there isn't much really. You have a couple of elements. Killing people and enemies to drain their blood, to increase your Health bar. Fighting enemies that fight you back, which is repetitive and boring as every enemy has a certain attack string. And you can block everything except certain unblockables which will only happen in a certain predictable string. So basically the fighting is mega boring after the first couple of times you encounter the same enemy. Then you have the puzzle element of the game. And that's not bad. The puzzles are fun, but not very challenging. So far I would have had to give the gameplay a 6/10. However, we have one more element of gameplay, and that is the boss battles. They are innovative, and super fun. So this boosts my grade up for gameplay to 8/10. As far as the controls, they are pretty responsive, and well put. As for difficulty, the game overall is not that difficult, although, you have to be pretty familiar with video games to be able to handle some of the bosses, and puzzles. So I would say difficulty wise its a 7/10 for a new videogame player.
The story is not bad. However it has a lot of loopholes, and you will face a couple contradictory elements. However, you will get to know Kain very well, and I have to say I have a new found respect for the character.
Music: Not much music.. So I can't comment on that.
Voice Acting: The voice acting is superb as always. And for that it would deserve a 10/10. BUT, there are glitches at certain parts in the game where the video and sound are out of synch. And going through messageboards, I have seen that many people have gone through this. My PS2 by the way works fine, I tested it with other games. It just seems to be a design flaw. For that I give the Audio 9/10.
The background graphics are amazing. The character designs are not bad. There are very few FMVs, maybe 2-3 in the whole game. The game mostly uses regular sequences (with the game characers lips moving, to simulate a scene), rather than FMVs.
As far as replayability, I would have to say this game has no replayability. When you finish the game, there is basically no point playing it again. Specially since the gameplay mechanics are fairly boring.
Now for the Big Question, which is should you buy this game or rent it? Well since this game is not very long, and has no replayability I do not recommend buying it. However since it is worth the play, I do recommend renting it. :)
I hope this review helps someone :)
I played this game on the XBOX. Tired of all those Billions of stupid sports and shooting games outhere? If you like dark and gothic games, this is the one for you! OUTSTANDING MUSIC, ACTING VOICES and graphics. Im not a video game junkie, but I like to have a selective variety of games that I like to play whenever I have time,,,,but this one, I couldnt put it down. The controllers are very simple to use, and the story line is also addictive/excellent, from the beginning, 'til the end. Not really want to get into any details, of what this game is all about, just because I want you to try it. Now that the new Xbox is out, this game will stay in my small collection, at least until my console kills over. Now is cheap BUY IT.
The story is good, nothing complain about the story, it is easy to play this game without a guide. However, this game is so violent, because you control main character as vampire so that's why you must kill and drink human or enemy's blood in order to survive and upgrade health bar. If you are interest in vampire stuff so I think this game is one of vampire games that you can play.
Blood Omen 2 is a fairly simple game. One of the first games out for the PS2, it has a simple storyline, good graphics (for it's time), and easy gameplay. The gore and violence is nice entertainment, and very many chapters of gameplay. Highly recommended.
