Blood Omen 2: Legacy of Kain is an action-adventure game developed by Crystal Dynamics and Nixxes Software, and published by Eidos Interactive. It is the fourth game in the Legacy of Kain series. Although chronologically it is set between the events of Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain and Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, the events of the game did not occur in the original history, and only took place in Nosgoth's history due to a paradoxical time-altering event which took place in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2 which distorted the timeline.

Background Layering

Background texture (thick clouds and moon) stays statically fixed in front of foreground and obstructs the view, making the game difficult to play.

Audio Issues

Audio glitching on start screen, 2 to 3 seconds of music plays, then loops. Fixed with new AX-HLE merge.


This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.

Test Entries
Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
3.5 Windows 7 x64 AMD X4 @ 2.4GHz AMD Radeon HD 6550 No FMVs show/sound only, sound and game play is very sluggish and the top half of the screen fails to render. Sound will speed up and overlap if paused. Virtually unplayable. SniperWolfMGS
4.0.2 Windows 7 x64 AMD X4 @ 3GHz AMD Radeon HD 6950 Intro FMVs don't show (sound only). Top half of the screen renders clouds and a moon on top of everything (should be in the background) but the UI. Frame rate is playable, but the clouds/moon issue needs fixing in order to further test accuracy of emulation (or play for that matter). RaiMage
4.0-3933 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i7-960 @ 3.6GHz nVidia GeForce 580 Intro video play fine, but layering of clouds/moon still an issue. Kolano
