One of my all-time favorites, this game series has a great and intriguing storyline and interesting characters. The voice cast is one of the best in the game business. I first played Soul Reaver, and was thrilled by the gameplay, the sequels followed (SR2, BO2 and Defiance), but I never played the original Blood Omen, though I've been able to piece the story together, since there are a lot of references in the sequels. I agree that the camera is a huge minus for the last LoK game, but it doesn't bother me that much, since I concentrate on the storyline and the action, which is great.
Too bad there aren't any more LoK games, since Defiance didn't wrap the story up completely and the saddest part is that there probably won't be any more sequels, since the person responsible for the story in all LoK games isn't working for Eidos anymore.
