"Soul Reaver 2: Legacy of Kain" is a story-heavy action-RPG developed by Crystal Dynamics and published in 2001 by Eidos Interactive. "Legacy of Kain" follows the main character Raziel as he travels through time in an attempt to gain answers about his own destiny. Because "Soul Reaver 2" is an older game, it often has trouble--or an outright inability--to function on newer operating systems like Windows XP. Fortunately, several fans have banded together to create a patch that solves that problem and allows Soul Reaver 2 to be played in Windows XP.
