    Amen for number 2 and number 5. I still think it'd be more awesome to bring back Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain and that style of gameplay rather than the later games.

    "History abhors a paradox." I'd like the reboot to keep the (mostly) impressive writing and dialogue, along the lines of Soul Reaver 2.

    Just give me Blood Omen 2HD and I'm set...

    I'd love a defiance remake

    When I got into The legacy Of Kain was because of Soul Reaver & Raziel. So I dont agree w/ Number #2, No RPG for Me, Im sorry. If any, Blood Omen = RPG, Soul Reaver = Action Adventure.

    They'd probably replace Tony Jay with Jim Cummings, since Square is apparently already having him replace Jay as Judge Frollo in Kingdom Hearts 3D(don't quote me on that; that's just what it says on wikipedia).

    uncanny the only thing i was gonna ask for was the original voices and it's number 10 i'm amazed lol

    Please for the love of god don't put any stupid moral choice's in there. With something as plot heavy as LOK in can only end in ruin, OK there was one in the first but they smartly made it non canon as it would have mucked up a large part of the plot. Oh and cliff rangers are cool as long as your doing more than one game, just make sure there's some epic event leading up to it. If anything I hope they use the time travel heavy plot to make a reboot that's not strictly a reboot.

    I want to see something more akin to The Witcher 2 with a touch of Dragon Age: Origins. Blood Omen as a full on AAA RPG would blow me away.

    They were just recently in Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Is that not enough for you guys?
  • anthonymccann - March 27, 2012 4:16 p.m.

    They were character reskins that used recycled voice clips from the Legacy of Kain games. Fuck no that's not enough. In fact that's nothing.

    I enjoyed Blood Omen quite a bit, and for some reason never finished Soul Reaver, even though it's the kind of game I've played a lot of in the years since. Neither game rebooted would be nearly as groundbreaking as the originals, but the setting is great, and could fit in nicely with modern action RPGs.

    The original was incredible! It had a great story mixed with a interesting world. The sequel and the Soul Reaver games seem like they forgot what made them so great. They focused more on the action than they did on the story or exploration. I really hope they focus more on Kain story right after Blood Omen than The Soul Reaver story.

    the legacy of kain/soul reaver series is probably my ultimate favourite gaming storyline of all-time...i absolutely adored those games, and would love to see something really good happen with them. Raziel's voice-acting was so enjoyable to listen to, along with everyone else. but especially his.
  • gilgamesh310 - March 27, 2012 7 p.m.

    The Legacy of Kain series is easily one of my favourite series in gaming. I love the story and think Kain and Raziel are easily two of gamings best characters. I agree with most of the points made. A game with combat similar to Dark Souls and platforming similar to Prince of Persia could be fucking amazing. I don't entirely agree with the concept of two games being rollled into one though. The There is very little filler in the games, especially with regards to the story, so I wouldn't want to see them trimmed down. Metal Gear Solid 4 would probably be better with about half the story content cut out, but that definitely isn't true of the Soul Reaver games. I appreciate the article though. I

    Out of interest I have been working on Two Legacy of Kain books. The first picks up right after Defiance with Kain trying to find a way to truly defeat the Elder God. The Second involves more of the cancelled 'Dark Prophecy' which when I wrote my sequel, had been found on the web. So I combine the two but took out the bit concerning the Elder God seeing as I wrote it in the first story. It wasn't done half heartily either. since 2003 to 2006 I researched everything about Legacy of Kain and surfed numerous fan websites to read what the fans wanted as well as my personal 'wants'. However, about a year ago I lost the first story but luckily I had printed back up. So lately I've been re-typing and rewriting the first story. I have a title of: Legacy of Kain-The War for Nosgoth. The sequel is Legacy of Kain-Rise of the King to tie in with the ideas put forth in the 'Dark Prophecy' . The Sequel is only 10 chapters so very short by modern standards but it should give a 'finished' out with Kain finally returning the Pillars to Vampire Guardianship. :)

    I meant to say the Dark Prophecy 'Hadn't' been found on the web!!
  • big0jeff - March 28, 2012 12:15 p.m.

    I was just thinking the other day how cool it would be for them to make a more updated Blood Omen game. No Soul Reaver bullshit!!!!! Compared to Kain, Raziel was a pretty lame character plus the platforming in those games kinda sucked!
  • Relayer71 - March 28, 2012 5:11 p.m.

    The "game that started it all" was the best of the damn bunch. Brilliant writing, voice acting, amazingly atmospheric music and sound effects, great story. The only knock against Blood Omen I have is it was a bit clunky (playing it now on the PSP and though load times are a bit faster, it's still clunky as hell). I would buy an HD remake of that game with an overhauled U.I. any day of the week. Only played 2 of the sequels and they were disappointing, though the first sequel, Soul Reaver, wasn't bad. But it was too much Tomb Raider.
  • H2A2I00 - March 28, 2012 5:34 p.m.

    I love the suggestions you guys put forth, but I kinda liked the cliffhanger endings. It gave me a reason to be excited for the next one and really set the tone. Granted, I rather have a complete ending in the final game which would leave me with no questions so that would be nice. Besides that I hope the reboot goes like you hope instead of a brand new story/cast of characters. It just wouldn't be the same without Raziel and Kain and their struggle with destiny.
