I know this game gets mixed reviews since it branched off from the Legacy of Kain series, but as a kid this game shaped my world. Graphics are fantastic for its time, the cutscenes are even better. Gameplay can be a little redundant, but is still rewarding. The theme and story of this game are phenomenal, and the emotional depth is just riveting. I highly recommend this game. You may need a walkthrough for certain parts. I know I still do and I've played this game and finished it at least five times.
