Now here's something you probably didn't see coming. Eidos Interactive's and Crystal Dynamic's well-regarded and classic platform, adventure, RPG-style action game is getting the re-release treatment on Steam. The PSX classics helped shape a genre, and now new-school gamers get to experience some of that golden-era goodness.

Each of the games have been optimized for release for today's PCs, which means you don't need boot disks and memory managers to trick the games into working. The releases include Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2 and Legacy of Kain: Defiance. Unfortunately you don't get the original Legacy of Kain that started it all way back on PC.

Nevertheless, the original Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver was one of the more highly regarded PSX titles released during that generation. The mix of puzzle elements, striking combat and Kurt Harkland's amazing soundtrack for the game set it apart from any and everything else on the market.

Unfortunately, Soul Reaver 2 and Defiance were lost in the shuffle of the PS2's massive library. But now you can experience the games that star both Raziel and Kain in the epic vampire saga. You can check them out right now on Steam.
