Personal review
A bit different foray in the game series compared to the others. Blood Omen 2 is tells a small part of Kain's history and storywise is set quite far apart from the rest of the series. This was the most disappointing part of the series, even though the game itself was enjoyable enough, it diverged too much from the main plot of the series.

You play the role of Kain, recently recuperated from wounds done to you two hundred years ago by a Sarafan Lord, though you remember little of it. So you set out, weak as you are, to get back into conquering the world. But the aim here is only to get your sword - the Soul Reaver - back and get your sweet revenge on the Sarafan Lord on the way. This all happens roughly four hundred years after the events of Blood Omen, and unspecified number of years before the events of Soul Reaver.

According to Wikipedia, the events of Blood Omen 2 took place _because_ of the events in Soul Reaver 2. The time-twisting and paradoxal time-altering done there was apparently the cause of this.
