I’m really into games preservation. It’s important. So, I was quite surprised to see Crystal Dynamics’ Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver had been temporarily pulled from the Steam store by its new owners, Square Enix. The Steam version of Soul Reaver is a tedious chore to get working; it’s not something I can recommend in its present state. There are fixes for the patient, but even when applied there’s no guarantee you won’t run into more problems. My hope is that Square Enix are working to make it playable again, which would be just wonderful.
Because Soul Reaver is something of a Gothic masterpiece.
