Absolutely superb game from Crystal Dynamics, story driven 3rd person adventure game. The mechanics are similar to the Zelda games and more recently Darksiders. You work your way round the world, and enter various dungeons, in each dungeon there is a specific weapon or skill you get which you need to be able to get past obstacles in the world to get to new areas.

There are 2 sequels to this game and 1 spin off that features Kain, the story on these titles is so good it is one of those games you keep going back to every few year to play through again.

Funnily enough the Dreamcast version is only marginally better than PS1 version, the main characters look sharper in detail and there are less jaggy lines in the environment but that's it, I also have this on PC which looks nicest but given its age and technology at the time PC is only slightly better than the DC version.

Mind you controls are funny, with the PS1 version you use L1 & R1 to rotate camera left and right, PC is mouse or assigning to a joypad button. The DC verrsion though you either hold both triggers for free look which is also aim once you get the reaver blast but to straighten the camera behind you then you have to use the D Pad left and right which is no good if you are fighting something.

Another game I had for the ps1, which was an amazing achievement with what they did on that console. Obviously it will be a lot better on the Dreamcast though.
