** It takes place entirely in an alternate timeline created in ''Defiance'' and destroyed in ''Soul Reaver 2''. If you skip it you miss nothing.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: It's entirely possible that characters other than Raziel have free will. Free will seems to be a matter of existing outside the normal laws of time and fate, like Raziel and the Elder God do. As the Timestreamer, able to freely see through time and travel forward and backwards as he wishes, Moebius seems like he would fit the bill for that description. And he ''does'' seek to actively change history a couple of times, despite the fact that the series claims that's impossible to do without free will. Kain definitely gains the power at change fate by the end of Defiance, but what gave him that power is ambiguous with all he goes through in the final chapters. And if only a select few individuals get to have free will, don't you think [[spoiler:the Scion of Balance, the prophesied figure who will save Nosgoth]], would be one of them?

** Want to really crush the game? Just mind control a person and take them to a Wraithforge. Doing so, chains will descend to draw and quarter the poor victim. In return for this human sacrifice, the wraiths will give you 99 of whatever they make instead of the measly amount they normally hand out. Having 99 Hearts of Darkness almost guarantees you'll never have to retreat to your tomb.

* AwesomeMusic: The series is not really known for its soundtrack but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNWSDvDqm9g Ozar Midrashim]] remains memorable as its one iconic theme.

This is due to Blood Omen 2 being influenced by TWO canceled games that project lead Steve Ross had previously worked on. The first half of the game has elements of an unreleased Dreamcast title called Chakan 2 (a sequel to a Sega Genesis title) while the last part of Blood Omen 2 was influenced by a cancelled title called Sirens. Both unfinished games were entirely unrelated to each other hence the jarring differences when game elements were utilized in Blood Omen 2.

* EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame: A common criticism of the later entries in the series was that the gameplay had lost its way and they were only worth playing for the story. ''Soul Reaver'' is probably the only entry in the franchise in which the gameplay was praised just as much as the story.

** At one point during ''Soul Reaver 2'', the Elder God flat-out states that Kain will "seduce" Raziel if he isn't careful. [[ThatCameOutWrong Granted, that probably wasn't what it meant, but still...]]

* TheWoobie - Raziel goes through ''a lot.'' He gets destroyed and abused and manipulated so many times in so many humiliating ways that you can't help but feel sorry for him.

* FollowTheLeader: ''Defiance'''s combat system is obviously inspired from ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'', which had come out 2 years prior. When you think about it, it was actually one of its first followers, before ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' and ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' made everyone forget about it.
