In Blood Omen 2 you are the vampire Kain, the most evil figure ever to appear in a video game. You will move through crowds cloaked in stealth and unseen, travel stories above the peasant herds on which you feed, leaping from roof-top to roof-top, and use mind-control to overcome vampire-proof inventions.
The combat choreography unfolds with dance-like precision as Kain engages armies of demons and humans alike. The comprehensive menu of unstoppable attacks, nimble combos and special moves are designed to appeal to even the most jaded of fighting game fans.
The world that Kain moves through is a lushly detailed gothic environment that is not only gorgeous to the eye, but also alive with the soon-to-be dead. The AI behavioural response makes peasants and enemies variously flee, take up arms or remain unaware as Kain moves through crowds or charges, sword raised, into open areas.
