    A. Story
    =============
    	
    	Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2, picks up where the first one left
    off. Kain and Raziel are in Moebius' Chronoplast chamber, having a
    heated argument. Kain jumps through the time portal and slips into
    Nosgoth's past. Raziel must follow the evil Kain through different
    times in Nosgoth's history, and stop him from destroying everything in
    his path. Basically, this game is just like the first Soul Reaver,
    except there are new friends and foes, and new power=ups for Raziel and
    the Soul Reaver. Raziel also finds out more about his past as a Sarafan
    Warrior, before Kain resurrected him and his Sarafan Brothers, to be
    his sons, his Lieutenants in an evil empire.
    
    =============
    B. Controls
    =============
    
    	Although I hate "Controls" sections in Walkthrough/FAQs, I'm
    putting this in for those unlucky people who rented the game and didn't
    get a manual:
    
    Left Analog Stick: Move Raziel
    X Button: Jump/Swim
    L2 + X Button: High Jump / Underwater Speed Burst
    Jump (X) + X in Mid-Air: Glide using Raziel's Wings
    Square Button: Action Button - Light attacks, pick up items, open
    doors, etc.
    Triangle Button: Heavy Attacks
    Circle Button: Hold to Devour Souls, Tap Twice to Activate / Deactivate
    the Soul Reaver
    L1: Block Attacks
    L2: Crouch
    L2 + Square Button: Drop Weapon
    R1: Sneak / Auto-Face Enemies in Combat
    R2: Look Around Mode (Hold R2 and use the Left Analog Stick to look
    around)
    R2 + Triangle Button: Fire Projectile (Hold R2 and the Triangle button,
    and use the left analog stick to aim. Release the Triangle Button to
    fire.)
    Select: Access Menu. From here you can Shift between planes, look at
    the map, and summon the Soul Reaver.
    
    ===============
    C. Characters
    ===============
    
    Raziel - "Born" to Kain as a Son and a Lieutenant of his Army, Raziel
    is really a Sarafan Warrior whose tomb Kain raided. Kain resurrected
    Raziel and the other Sarafan buried with him, and made them his "sons,"
    who were to help him rule his empire of Nosgoth. Raziel, unfortunately,
    evolved before his master Kain did (Raziel grew wings at the beginning
    of the first game), and was thrown into the Lake of the Dead, destined
    to burn in the lake for all eternity. By some luck, however, the Elder
    God, a giant squid who dwells within the Abyss of the Lake, saved
    Raziel, giving him new life, and the ability to absorb the souls of his
    defeated enemies.  This is how Raziel became the Soul Reaver.
    
    Kain - Kain, born to noble parents, and thinking himself invincible,
    became a vampire after being murdered by robbers. When Kain was
    resurrected, he found himself to be a vampire (see Blood Omen: The
    Legacy of Kain on Playstation.) At first, Kain made a decent attempt at
    healing Nosgoth by destroying the corrupt sorcerers who were poisoning
    it. But Kain became power hungry, and decided to rule Nosgoth rather
    than save it. He resurrected Raziel and the other Sarafan Warriors as
    his "sons" to help him rule this land.
    
    Moebius - Moebius is the controller and watcher of Time. He controls
    the Time Portals, which Kain is using to jump between eras. He is a
    deceitful little man, with an agenda of his own. He is not to be
    trusted.
    
    Vorador - An ancient vampire who roams the land which Raziel first
    finds himself in. Raziel feels that someone is watching him the whole
    time he is there, and later encounters Vorador outside of the Dark
    Forge.
    
    Ariel - The Balance Guardian, who was murdered. She now haunts the
    Pillars of Nosgoth.
    
    Elder God - The giant squid from the first Soul Reaver. He is both
    Raziel's savior, and his executioner. He saved Raziel from the Lake of
    the Dead by transforming his broken body into its new, soul devouring
    form, forever condemning Raziel to walk lands of Nosgoth, searching for
    the remaining vampires
    
    Janos Audron - An ancient vampire, and the 10th Guardian of the Pillars.
    He is the only Guardian still living. He explains Raziel's destiny to
    him, and how the Soul Reaver was forged.
    
    ==============
    D. Reaver Guide
    =============
    
    Dark Reaver - The first elemental power that Raziel acquires for the
    Soul Reaver is Darkness. When the Soul Reaver has been recharged in a
    Dark fountain (they look like bowls with dark, purple light), it
    becomes the Dark Reaver. You can tell if the Dark Reaver is active by
    looking at the bottom left corner of your screen. If there is an
    eclipse symbol (the moon over the sun), the Dark Reaver is active. You
    can activate items with Dark Reaver symbols on them by using the action
    button while the Soul Reaver is in this state. Raziel can also activate
    Dark Reaver altars, which look like Purple Flames coming from spots on
    the ground. Shove the Dark Reaver into the altar to activate a Dark
    Bridge, which Raziel can walk on. The Dark Reaver's projectiles can
    also be used to blind the Sentry Eyes located around Nosgoth, for a
    short period of time.
    
    Light Reaver - The second elemental power that Raziel acquires for the
    Soul Reaver is Light. When the Soul Reaver has been recharged in a
    Light fountain (a bowl with yellow/white light), it becomes the Light
    Reaver. This is represented by a Sun symbol in the lower left corner of
    your screen. You can activate items with Light Reaver symbols on them
    by using the action button while the Soul Reaver is in this state.
    Raziel can also use the Light Reaver to shoot the Pink Orbs found over
    some doors, which are activated by the Light Reaver's projectile.
    
    Air Reaver - The third elemental power that Raziel acquires for the
    Soul Reaver is Air. When the Soul Reaver has been recharged in an Air
    fountain (a bowl with a bluish light), it becomes the Air Reaver. It is
    represented by a circle, with three U=shaped symbols attached to it, in
    the lower left hand corner. You can activate break weak walls using the
    Air Reaver's projectiles, and also you can activate Air Reaver altars
    with it. The Air Reaver altars look like the Air Reaver symbol, and
    will be located on the ground. Plunge the Air Reaver into them to
    activate an updraft, which Raziel can glide on.
    
    Fire Reaver - The fourth elemental power that Raziel acquires for the
    Soul Reaver is Fire. When the Soul Reaver has been recharged in a Fire
    fountain (a bowl with a flame coming out of it), it becomes the Fire
    Reaver. It is represented by a fire triangle, with a circle in the
    middle. It can open doors with the Fire Reaver symbol on it.

    E. Glitches and Precautions
    ====================
    
    ==============
    Sarafan Stronghold
    ==============
    	This new glitch comes via email from Carrol Curtis
    (carrollj@tds.net). Thank you, you were the first to be able to give me
    detailed information on how this glitch occurred!
           "I found another glitch! It is at the very start of the game when
    Raziel finds the physical Soul Reaver on that tomb. Well after Mobieus
    leaves and and the doors shut and lock, I tried to go back in. I jumped
    and held forward and just went through the locked gate, right through
    the lock at the center of the double doors. Well, guess what? You
    guessed it, there is no way out! Had to restart and watch all the
    opening movies again and redo all the battles."
    
    ========
    Dark Forge
    ========
     This is the only major glitch in the game, and it's a very annoying
    one. It seems that if you mess with the Ravens (the birds that turn
    green and disappear) outside the Dark Forge, and then enter and
    complete the puzzle, you will have no way to exit the forge. There are
    two solutions to this:
    
    Method 1:
        Replay the Dark Forge, taking extra care not to disturb the
    Ravens on your way into the forge. Complete the puzzle, and you
    should be able to use the Dark Reaver to open the door and exit.
    Doing this will still enable you to view the cut scene between
    Vorador and Raziel.
    
    Method 2:
    	Open the door to the Dark Forge, and, while the door is open,
    switch to the Spectral Realm and proceed into the forge. Make sure
    you get a good, long way away from the open doors before you switch
    back to the Material Realm. This will cause the game to leave these
    doors open. Solve the Dark Forge puzzle, and then, before exiting
    the forge, switch back to the Spectral Realm. This will prevent the
    doors from closing when you approach them, and you can exit the Dark
    Forge without any glitches. Completing the Dark Forge in this manner
    will NOT allow you to view the cut scene between Raziel and Vorador.
    
    	On a side note, I was told on AIM that if you re-enter the Dark
    Forge, and then exit it using the Dark Reaver after leaving using the
    method above, you *will* get the cutscene between Raziel and Vorador. I
    don't know if the potential to get stuck in the Dark Forge is still
    there the second time around or not.
    
    Thanks for information regarding this glitch go out to:
    
    Craig - JRRTolkienNut@aol.com
    Knightshade Dragon - knightshade@qwest.net
    Mr. Faididi - faididi@hotmail.com
    
    And thanks to everyone else who emailed me that they were having
    problems getting out of the Dark Forge. Without you guys, I would never
    have believed that there was a problem with the game, since I made it
    through glitchfree. Also, if I forgot someone in my list of thank-yous,
    let me know so I can give you the credit you deserve.
    
    ========
    Fire Forge
    ========
    	This one comes straight from an email from Aaron Trionfi
    (trionfia@sbcglobal.net). Thanks a lot for the detailed information
    regarding this glitch, as so far no one had been able to tell me what
    the heck they did to enact it!
    	
    	"...I came across an interesting one (glitch) while completing the
    Janos Audron puzzle.  If you look closely, you can see where the air
    currents will materialze once you complete a level of the puzzle. With
    this in mind, you can actually activate the currents with your Air
    Reaver before they materialize!  Although you can't see the wind, you
    can still float up to the next level!  I did not realize this was a
    glitch until after I completed the puzzle (an alternate way) only to
    place the last key in the wrong side of the last door (the game did not
    like this and refused to unlock the door!).  I had to start the puzzle
    over."
    
    =============
    F. Walkthrough
    =============
    ======================
    1: The Time Streaming Device
    ======================
    
    <Opening Cut scene>
           Raziel and Kain are where the first game left off, in the
    Chronoplast chamber. Raziel and Kain argue for a while, and then Kain
    leaps through a time portal and goes into Nosgoth's past, where it is
    still undamaged. Raziel follows in pursuit, but Moebius pulls him out
    of the time stream so that he does not slam headlong into a battle with
    Kain.
    
    ============================
    2: Sarafan Stronghold
    ============================
    
    <Cut scene between Raziel and Moebius>
           Moebius describes Kain's plan to confront Raziel at the Pillars
    of Nosgoth. Moebius describes Raziel's heritage as a Sarafan Knight
    before Kain resurrected Raziel and the others as his sons. Moebius
    forces an alliance between himself and Raziel. Moebius also shows
    Raziel the power of his staff, which can halt a vampires powers, by
    forcing the Soul Reaver to disappear, unable to reappear until Raziel
    is out of it's range. Moebius gets Raziel to resume a quest to destroy
    Kain and "embrace your Sarafan heritage."
    
           After the cut scene has ended, proceed to your right, through the
    large double doors. Proceed down the hallway, and defeat the two guards
    in it (don't forget to suck in their souls after defeating them). This
    will cause the gate to rise so you can exit through the door at the end
    of the hallway.
    
           In the next hallway, defeat the single guard, and exit through
    the door on your right. You cannot exit through the gate at the end of
    the hall yet. In this next room, defeat the single guard and proceed
    through the door directly across from where you entered (the only other
    exit).
    
    <Raziel Cut scene>
           Raziel looks around the stronghold and sees stained glass
    depictions of his heritage as a Sarafan Knight, as well as statues of
    the Sarafan Knights.
    
           In this large courtyard area, you must defeat three enemies to
    raise the gate, which lowered at the end of the cut scene. Proceed to
    the gate and shift to the Spectral Plane. Walk forward until Raziel
    passes through the iron bars. Proceed to the Blue Portal in the middle
    of this room. Feed on the free souls in this room until Raziel's health
    has fully recovered, then stand on the Blue Portal and shift back to
    the Material Plane.
    
    <Raziel Cut scene>
           Away from Moebius' staff, Raziel's Soul Reaver returns, and
    Raziel understands how Moebius' crusade against the vampires had been
    so successful. With Moebius' great power, vampires would be crippled
    and powerless, and at his mercy.
    
           In this new room, part of the Cathedral of the Stronghold, there
    are seven enemies, which you can slay, though it is not necessary to
    kill them all. At any rate, proceed through the large iron doors
    directly in front of where you appeared after the cut scene.
                **** WARNING: PLEASE READ "Sarafan Stronghold" IN THE
    GLITCHES AND PRECAUTIONS SECTION OF THIS FAQ BEFORE PROCEEDING ONWARD!
    THANK YOU! *****
    
    <Cut scene between Raziel and Moebius>
           Raziel finds the chapel in which the tomb of King William the
    Just is laid to rest. Moebius got Kain to slay William to start the
    genocide against the vampires. Raziel finds the original sword, the
    Soul Reaver, broken in two but still containing it's soul. Raziel's
    Spectral Soul Reaver absorbs the power of the broken blade, and nearly
    kills him. Raziel becomes the Soul Reaver's helpless pawn. Raziel
    accuses Moebius, who suddenly appears, of setting this trap for him.
    Raziel moves to kill Moebius, but leaves the old man, once again in
    pursuit of Kain. Raziel can now summon the Soul Reaver at will.  His
    life gauge is also much smaller than at the start of the game. If the
    Soul Reaver is over-used in its new form (there's a second gauge next
    to your life gauge, it kind of curves around it), it will begin to feed
    on Raziel's health.
    
           There is also a cut scene in which Raziel looks at a Stained
    Glass portrait of the Sarafan Knights killing an ancient vampire, by
    ripping his heart out. The Sarafan protected his heart, known as the
    "Heart of Darkness". They wanted to make sure the evil power contained
    within it would never escape.
    
           Exit through the door on the left side of the room. In this
    hallway there will be one guard to defeat. Exit through the door at the
    end of the hall.
    
    <Raziel Cut scene>
           Raziel is in a chapel, which is a memorial to himself and his
    former Sarafan Knights, before Kain transformed them into his sons, his
    Lieutenants. Raziel reflects on how righteous he was, and how vile he
    has become.
    
           Defeat the enemies in this room to open the gate, which was
    lowered at the end of the cut scene. Proceed up the spiral staircase
    that is located on the left side of the room, and exit through the door
    on the upper level.
    
    This hallway contains no enemies, so just run through it and out the
    door at the other end.
    
    ===========================
    3: The Southern Lake
    ===========================
    
    <Raziel Cut scene>
    Raziel looks at Nosgoth in its original form, before Kain destroyed it.
    
           Jump off of this ledge, and swim to the left, until you reach a
    piece of land with a set of gears on it. Raziel will illuminate a loop
    on a post, which are the game's checkpoints. If you're killed in the
    Material World, Raziel will return to the nearest checkpoint. Walk up
    the ramp in front of the gears, and activate them. This will open an
    underwater passage to your left. Swim through this passage, and head
    left until you reach a low piece of land. Raziel will now discover
    "ancient obelisks". These are the game's save points. Activate them to
    save your game. Now, walk back towards the water, turn left, and jump
    up onto the raised land. Now, crouch and jump up to the higher piece of
    land. Now, run forward and glide across the gap to the next piece of
    land.
    
           Now just follow this path, defeating enemies along the way.
    Eventually you will wade through a small river and activate another
    checkpoint. Turn around, and you will see a staircase to your right.
    Proceed up this staircase, fighting the enemies along the way.
    
    <Raziel Cut scene>
           Raziel notices how the impaled vampires along his path look more
    like oppressed townsfolk than the ruthless hunters of his era, and
    becomes disgusted at this persecution.
    
           Upon reaching the gate, defeat the enemies around it, then hold
    the switch to remove the bars holding it closed. Now, proceed through
    it.
    
    ==================
    4: The Pillars
    ==================
    
    <Cut scene Between Raziel and Kain>
           Raziel discovers that Kain was born to be the Balance Guardian of
    the Pillars, to replace Ariel, after her assassination. Kain murdered
    the rest of the circle to restore balance to their corrupted pillars,
    but failed to destroy himself and finish the restoration. Kain avoided
    this, as it would annihilate their species, as he was the last vampire.
    
           Kain disappears after the cut scene. Walk behind the pillars to
    get the next cut scene. Now, shift to the Spectral plane to open up a
    path directly behind the pillars, and proceed down it. Once you reach
    the Blue Portal, shift back to the Material plane. There will be
    another cut scene, in which Raziel thinks he is being watched. Now,
    activate the checkpoint on your right, and proceed onward down the path
    in front of you. There will be another cut scene, in which Raziel sees
    a figure much like himself, painted on a door. Use the Soul Reaver to
    open the ancient door.
    
    =============================
    5: Subterranean Ruins
    =============================
    
           Now, enter this newly opened path. The door will close behind
    you. Fight the (somewhat hard to see) Shadow Enemies as you follow this
    path. You will enter a room, which looks much like the pillars on the
    surface, and another cut scene will play out.  You will discover the
    Elder God is still present in this world, and will have a nice little
    homecoming with Raziel. Straight ahead of you will be a save point.
    Now, dive underwater and search for a tunnel with lights on the
    entrance.
    
           Follow this tunnel, and emerge amongst more of those wonderful
    shadow creatures. After killing them, turn around and head up the ramp
    on the left side of the room. Jump to the ledge (there's a small gap
    between the ramp and the next ledge) and proceed down the path.
    Eventually you will end up at another pool of water. Dive into it, and
    follow the underwater cavern that is lit. Proceed on until you find a
    wall that can be climbed (you won't need to climb it since you're
    swimming.)
    
    ==================
    6: Swamp
    ==================
    
           When you emerge, you will be treated to another cut scene. Now,
    proceed forward and activate the checkpoint. There will be a few
    enemies here that will need a good slaying, and then you can proceed to
    the right by following the "stepping stones." The mud in this area is
    quite thick so try to fight enemies on dry land. You'll reach a door,
    which Raziel will kick down. Raziel will then have a small cut scene in
    which Raziel realizes Vorador is the person who is watching him.
    Proceed down the path that was opened, when Raziel kicked down the
    door. There will be a few enemies here. After defeating them, proceed
    around this area until you come to another arch, like the doorway
    Raziel went through after knocking down the door. You'll know when
    you've found it, as there is a save point located there. Proceed left
    from the save point, down the wide path, fighting the enemies as you
    go. There will be a small cut scene in which Raziel talks about "a
    passage to the north, which is obstructed and too high for me to
    reach." To the left of this area, there is a wall, which Raziel can
    climb. Head up it, and jump down on the other side of this wall.
    Proceed down this path, until you reach the ruins on which you saw
    Vorador. There will be a short cut scene. Now, use the Soul Reaver to
    open the door in front of Raziel (as you approach the door, you will
    activate another checkpoint.)

    "E: Glitches And Precautions" ABOVE BEFORE APPROACHING THE DARK FORGE.
    THANK YOU! *********
    
    ===================
    7: Dark Forge
    ===================
    
           The doors will close behind you, leaving you in an empty hallway.
    Head down it, and use the Soul Reaver to defeat the guard in front of
    the door. Pick up the shield, which will be floating near you in
    midair, and place it on the door to open it. Proceed down the hallway,
    and then shift to the Spectral Plane to pass through the gate blocking
    your path. Pass through this room then head right until you find a Blue
    Portal. Shift back to the Material Realm. Head back to the gate that
    you passed through, and climb up the wall on the left side of the room.
    There will be a short cut scene with Raziel. Head up the stairs, and
    slay the enemy at the top with the Soul Reaver. Now, glide across the
    room to the pillar with the platform on top. Now, Glide across to the
    platform with the stairs, in front of the pillar. There will be a short
    cut scene, while Raziel looks around this room.  The room contains
    mirrors, which you must turn to open the doors located around it room.
    
           Drop down, and turn the mirror until it opens the room on the
    right. Go down this hallway, and at the end, Shift to the Spectral
    Plane to pass through the grate. You should end up in a large room with
    a tree, holding a platform, in the middle. Locate the Blue Portal and
    Shift back to the Material Realm. Climb one of the Climbing Walls
    (located at the North and South ends of the room) and Glide out to this
    platform. Now, shift to the Spectral Plane. The room will twist, and
    the Platform you are on will rise up, so that you can glide across to
    the hallway in front of you. Once across, stand on the Blue Portal, and
    Shift back to the Material Plane. Use the Soul Reaver to defeat the
    guard, and then pick up the shield, which is floating near you. Use it
    to open the nearby doorway. Proceed down this hall, and then use the
    Soul Reaver to shoot open the Ceiling, which is over the mirror. Grab
    and Drag the Movable pillar to the center of the room. Then turn the
    mirror to face it.  If you did this correctly, there will be a small
    cut scene showing the shadow cast by the pillar. Now, jump on top of
    the fallen pillar piece to the right of the mirror. High jump to the
    top of the pillar, and glide across to the open passage. There will be
    a short cut scene.  Pick up the small mirror, which is held on the
    platform. Now drop down and head out towards the main room. When you
    approach the door with the mirror symbol on it, it will now open for
    you. Now, head on back to the main mirror room. Walk into the room and
    the door will close behind you. Head to the back of the room, and place
    the mirror on the holder, which resembles the one you removed it from.
    
           Now, go and turn the large mirror until it opens the room on the
    left. It will open a door guarded by a gate on the left side. Shift to
    the Spectral Realm, and pass through the gate. Find the Blue Portal,
    shift back to the Material Realm, and find the Climbing Wall. Climb it,
    and head back towards the mirror you passed after coming through the
    gate.  Turn the mirror by the gate towards the mirror in the main room
    (face it forward.) As you approach the ledge, there will be a pillar,
    which can be moved. Drag it to the center, and it will cast a shadow
    you can walk on. Walk out to the center platform, using this shadow.
    Use the Soul Reaver to shoot a projectile at the glowing spot on the
    ceiling in this room (its over the mirror that's on the platform.) Once
    this opens, turn the mirror until a passageway opens. High jump and
    head down this passage. Move the sundial to the right until the light
    shines down the hole, hitting the small mirror you placed. There will
    be a cut scene, and the large blue crystal in the main room will ignite
    the Soul Reaver forge. There will be a short cut scene, and Raziel will
    shove the Soul Reaver forge. You will now posses the Dark Reaver, and
    your life gauge will increase.
    
           Now, shove the Dark Reaver into the door behind Raziel, and there
    will be a cut scene where Raziel explains the elemental wells around
    Nosgoth. Now, head towards the far back door, and shove the Dark Reaver
    into it. Shove the Dark Reaver into the last Soul Reaver door, activate
    the checkpoint, and enjoy a cut scene between Raziel and Vorador.
    
    ===============
    8: Swamp
    ===============
    
           Our goal now is to head back to the Southern Lake, at which point
    we will enter the Light Forge. I'll assume you can find your own way
    back to the Southern Lake, and I will pick up the guide from that
    point.
    
    ===========================
    9: Subterranean Ruins
    ===========================
    
           There will be a cut scene between Raziel and the Elder God. This
    is a good hint that you're going the right way, if you're confused on
    how to get back to the Southern Lake. This is also a good place to use
    the Save Point. Use the Dark Reaver to open the Exit in this Area, and
    enter:
    
    =================
    10: The Pillars
    ==================
    
           Activate the Check Point here once again, and proceed on back to:
    
    =======================
    11:  Southern Lake
    =======================
    
           Jump into the lake, and swim back through the passage that you
    opened earlier, using the giant gears. In between the four waterfalls,
    there is a small piece of land with a door on it. Use the Dark Reaver
    to open this door and enter:
    
    ====================
    12: Light Forge
    ====================
    
           As usual, the doors will snap closed behind you, and you'll be
    left in a long hallway. Fight your way through this hallway, and Glide
    out to the altar with the Purple flame in the middle of the large room.
    There will be a short cut scene. If you need to recharge the power of
    the Dark Reaver, go to the ground level behind the altar platform, and
    recharge it. Now, stand on the Altar and shove the Dark Reaver into the
    flames. This will activate a dark bridge over to the other side of the
    room. Cross the bridge, and then shift to the Spectral Plane to pass
    through the gate blocking your path.  Activate the Check Point and
    shift back to the Material Plane. Proceed forward and use the Soul
    Reaver to open the door in front of you. There will be a short cut
    scene while Raziel looks around the room. This is the main room of the
    Light Forge. Head to the back of this room, and shift to the Spectral
    Plane. Pass through the Gate blocking your path. Head forward until you
    come to a Blue Portal. Shift back to the Material Plane. Head back to
    the gate that you passed through just a few seconds ago, now in solid
    form.
    
           On one side of the room, there will be a mirror, which you can
    move by sliding it up or down. Pull the mirror away from the gate so
    that it unlocks the set of doors with the Sun on them. Proceed down
    this hallway until the gates close, and you have to destroy the enemies
    to proceed. You will get a large mirror. Place this mirror on the empty
    stand in the main room. Go down the hallway by this mirror, and turn
    the large mirror until it opens the sun door near it. Go down this
    hallway until you reach a gate. Shift to the Spectral Plane and pass
    through the gate.  There will be a short cut scene, which hints at the
    exit to this area. Climb up the pillars until you are high enough to
    glide to the exit. Proceed until you reach the Blue Portal, located on
    the left side of a long hallway. Shift back to the Material Realm. Head
    back to the room with the Pillars. Activate the Soul Reaver, and
    recharge it with the Dark Reaver power. Now, head back to where the
    exit you glided to is. The block in the wall between the two staircases
    can be dragged. Drag the block out, climb up, and proceed down the long
    hallway again. Head left at the end, defeat the guards, and plunge the
    Dark Reaver into the Altar. This will create another Dark Bridge. Head
    across it, and fight the Guards in the room at the end. Now you have
    the second small mirror, now jump down to the room below and place the
    mirror on the holder. Now head back to the main room, and back to where
    the mirror that slid up or down is.  Slide the mirror down away from
    the sun door, so it shines on the other mirror. Now, head down the
    hallway across from the mirror, glide across the gap. Now, use the Dark
    Reaver to open the door. That solves the first part of the Light Forge
    Puzzle.
    
           Head back to the room with the pillars and now, you can open the
    Dark Reaver gate that you had to pass through before. Head back down
    the long hallway, past the large mirror, and Glide across the gap, to
    where the statue with the Dark Reaver symbol is. Now, use the Dark
    Reaver. There will be a short cut scene with the statue lowering into
    the ground. Now, turn the Large Mirror so that it shines onto the Small
    Mirror on the other side of the gap (there will be a short cut scene to
    let you know they're lined up right. Now cross the gap again, and use
    the Dark Reaver to open the door that the Small Mirror is shining on.
    This will cause it to shine on another mirror, and solve another part
    of the Light Forge puzzle. Head towards the gate in Light Forge Room
    (the first gate you passed through.) There will be a short cut scene
    and the gate will open.
    
           Now, head back up the long hallway to the room where the Sentry
    Eye is (where you used the Blue Portal and saw the guy get zapped by
    the beam.) Use the Dark Reaver to shoot a projectile into the eye (its
    located over the Sun Symbol, on the Ceiling.) Once the eye rolls back,
    run forward and grab the sun symbol. Now, the eye will roll back, so
    get out of its shooting range as quick as possible. If you get zapped,
    you'll shift back to the Spectral Realm, and will have to shift back to
    the Material Realm, and recharge the Dark Reaver in the Pillar Room,
    and do this all over again. Now, run down the long hallway, with the
    sun symbol, back to the room with the Light Forge in it. Stand in front
    of the Light Forge, and place the sun symbol on the spot that looks
    like a sun. After a short cut scene, you will be in control of Raziel
    again. Walk forward, and thrust the Soul Reaver into the Light Forge.
    After another cut scene, you will have the Light Reaver, and a larger
    health gauge. Proceed to the door located behind you, and thrust the
    Light Reaver into it. It's time to make our way out of the Light Forge,
    and back to the Southern Lake. Pass through the door you just opened,
    pass by the Light Reaver recharger, and open the Gate behind it using
    the Light Reaver. Pass through the room with two staircases (the one
    with the Dark Reaver Altar which activates the Dark Bridge) and shoot
    the symbol over the door with the Light Reaver (there is a short cut
    scene which hints at this.) This will open the doors in front of you.
    Head down the hallway, and use the Soul Reaver to open the doors in
    front of you, allowing you to proceed back to:
    
    ======================
    13: Southern Lake
    ======================
    
           Swim back through the underwater passage (you'll need to open it
    again, using the gears like before) and make use of the Save Point
    before entering Moebius' Strong Hold once again. Once you're ready, use
    the Light Reaver to shoot at the Pink Orb over the partially submerged
    doors. This will open them up and you can enter the Stronghold.
    
    ===========================
    14: Sarafan Stronghold
    ===========================
    
    	Swim into the newly opened passageway. At the end of it, there
    will be a place to recharge the Light Reaver on the left side, and
    another hallway to your right. Head down the hallway to the right, and
    there will be a short cut scene showing the doors close behind you.
    Head down the hallway, defeating any enemies which you may encounter.
    Exit through the door at the end of the hall. Now you'll be in a room
    with several enemies. Defeat them all to open the next door.  Head
    through this door, and you'll be back in the Cathedral where the Soul
    Reavers merged. Head forward through the large iron gates, for a long
    cut scene between Kain and Raziel. Head through the door to your left,
    and down the hallway, until you reach the round room with all the
    murals on the walls. Find the exit on the right side of the room, and
    head down it. You will now be in a room where you need to defeat the
    enemies to open the exit. Once they are beaten, proceed through the
    opened exit and into the courtyard you where in at the beginning of the
    game. Defeat the enemies here, and head down the hallway in front of
    you. Exit this hallway through the doorway at the end, and you will
    find yourself in another room where the exit is locked. Defeat the two
    guards and the dog to unlock the exit, and move onward through it. Go
    left down this new hall, and out the exit. Go through the large double
    doors, to the left of the Light Reaver recharge point, and enter the
    room where the game began.
    
    ==================================
    15: Time Streaming Device
    =================================
    
    Use the Light Reaver to shoot the pink orb over the door on the left
    side of the room. This will open the door, and cause a cut scene
    between Raziel and Moebius. Raziel will transport himself back in time,
    and emerge in the Time Streaming Device in the past. Exit through this
    room's only door, and enjoy the cut scene. Raziel will activate a
    checkpoint, and emerge in a very different version of:
    
    ===========================
    16: Sarafan Stronghold
    ===========================
    
    After defeating the enemies in this room, exit through the large double
    doors, to the south.  Proceed forward, destroying enemies as you
    encounter them. Exit through the twisted bars on the right side of the
    hallway. The creatures in this version of the Sarafan Stronghold are
    Wraiths, and will exist in both the Spectral and Material Realms, so be
    careful.  Pass through the door at the back of this room, and head down
    the short hallway, and into the courtyard.  Pass down the hallway on
    the opposite side of the courtyard, and through the door in the room at
    the end of it.  You will find yourself in the round room that had all
    the paintings of the Sarafan Warriors on the walls. Head through the
    North exit, and defeat the two large enemies to remove the energy wall
    blocking your path.  Head through the twisted iron bars and you will be
    treated to a cut scene, where Raziel finds out that he is really in
    Nosgoth's future, instead of the past. Raziel decides he has to explore
    the era he is in, since Moebius has left him stranded. Head through the
    gate to the west, and forward through the great cathedral, and out the
    door in the back, to the West. There will be a cut scene between Raziel
    and Moebius' spirit. After the cut scene, exit through the door to the
    right, and head on down the hallway. Defeat the three large enemies
    here to remove the green barriers blocking your path. Swim back out of
    the stronghold and enter:
    
    ==================================
    17: The Southern Lake
    ==================================
    
           	Now would be a very good time to use the save point across
    from the entrance to the Sarafan Stronghold. From the save point, head
    back towards the lake. At the edge of the lake, head left, jump up, and
    then high jump to the higher platform. Glide across and follow the
    path, fighting the enemies along the way. Eventually you will reach a
    pillar on the right side of the road, which is slanted over a pool. Run
    up the pillar, and glide across to the ledge. Be sure to activate the
    checkpoint on the right side of the stream, the head left, up the
    stairs. Jump and Glide across the broken bridge and proceed onward down
    the path. At the end, open the large double doors, and enter:
    
    ===================
    18: The Pillars
    ===================
    
    	There will be a cut scene between Ariel and Raziel.  After the
    cut scene, if you try to proceed forward past the pillars as you did
    before, there will be a huge Wraith, which is not stunned by your
    attacks. Be very careful while fighting it, as it can kill you with a
    few hits. After defeating the Wraith, move forward on the path. There
    will be another Wraith, which must be defeated to remove the green
    barrier blocking your path. After destroying it, continue down the
    path. When you reach the Blue Portal, shift back to the Material Realm.
    Move forward and activate the checkpoint on the right side of the path,
    then continue on forward. At the end of the path, use the Soul Reaver
    to open the large door that has a large painting of a creature that
    resembles Raziel. Move forward through the door, and it will close
    behind you. Proceed down the short hallway to enter the:
    
    =============================
    19: Subterranean Ruins
    =============================
    
    	Follow the path forward, fighting the Shadow creatures using the
    Soul Reaver. Eventually you will end up at the second set of pillars,
    where the Elder God resided in the first world. He is still here, and
    there will be a cut scene between the Elder God and Raziel. Once the
    cut scene is over, two large Wraiths will attack you. After defeating
    them, you can use the save point located across from where Raziel
    stands. Now, dive into the water where the Elder God is, and locate the
    underwater tunnel, marked by the two lamps on either side. Follow it,
    and jump out when you reach the surface. Follow the path up the ramp to
    your right, and jump to the platform at the end of the ramp. Follow the
    ramp and the path as the twist upward, and then move downward. Use the
    Dark Reaver recharge point, and jump into the water surrounding the
    statue you see below you. Find the tunnel underwater, marked by two
    lights on either side of the entrance. Emerge from the water, fight the
    shadow creature, and then jump back in the water on the other side of
    the platform. Swim until you reach another tunnel in which you can
    emerge from the water. Jump out and onto the platform. Turn to your
    left, and jump up onto the ledge by the glowing crystal.  Now, glide
    across the pool of water to the opposite ledge. Follow the short path,
    and jump up to another ledge. Now, turn around until you see a ledge
    with Purple Flames (a Dark Reaver mark.) Jump and Glide out to that
    ledge, and then thrust the Dark Reaver into the altar (the hole on the
    floor.) This will cause a Dark Bridge to form, so that you can walk
    across to the next ledge. At the end of the path in front of you, there
    will be a large enemy, which you'll need to defeat to remove the green
    wall blocking your path. After removing the green wall, proceed down
    the path a little bit, and there will be a climbing wall on the right.
    Climb up the wall, walk around the edge of the hole you just emerged
    out of, and enter:
    
    ==============
    20: Swamp
    ==============
    
    	Walk forward and activate the checkpoint in front of you. Defeat
    the bizarre looking enemies using the Soul Reaver, and walk forward to
    examine the door to the Time Streaming Device.  There will be a new cut
    scene, explaining that your new goal is to break the seal, which is
    preventing you from using it.  Head to the right, and follow the
    "stepping stones" around, where you will encounter a human enemy.
    Defeat him, and proceed through the archway. Proceed in a large U shape
    around this area, defeating the enemies as you go using the Soul
    Reaver. Pass through another arch, and defeat the enemies here. You may
    want to use the Save Point, which is located in this area. Head to the
    right from the save point, where you will encounter more human enemies.
    Head down this path, defeating the enemies as you go. Eventually there
    will be a small cut scene, which shows that you can now pass through
    the mountains. Move forward, and climb up the wall in front of you.
    Head down the path cut into the mountains. You'll activate a checkpoint
    as you enter:
    
    =============
    21: Uschtenheim
    =============
    
    	Jump off the ledge, just past the checkpoint, to the area where
    the waterfall is. Defeat the five enemies here, then head to the left
    of the waterfall, and climb the wall. Head down the path directly in
    front of the large wall, where you will encounter two large enemies,
    which must be defeated to remove the blue wall blocking your path. Beat
    them, and continue down the path (the correct path has rain falling
    down into it.) When you reach the next cavern, defeat the enemies and
    either climb up the wall in the back, or run up the ramp to the left.
    Now, proceed down this path until you reach an archway, which looks
    like part of a castle. Use your high jump to jump on top of the
    archway. Defeat the two guards, and hold the lever to open the gate
    below. There will be a cut scene in which Raziel enters a small
    village. Once you regain control of Raziel, there will be a large enemy
    in front of him. Destroy the enemy and head down the street in front of
    you. Eliminate the enemies as you go, and at the end of the street is a
    save point, which I suggest you make use of.  Head back out from the
    save point, and move around the building which the save point is in.
    There will be a few enemies in this area. After defeating them, head
    left through the open gate, and follow the path. Destroy the large
    enemy to remove the green wall blocking you, and proceed further down
    the path. Drop down, and there will be about seven enemies trying to
    attack you all at once. Use the Soul Reaver to destroy them quickly.
    Now, jump up to the ledge on the opposite side of the room, and proceed
    up the ramp. There will be a large platform across a small gap, where
    an enemy is standing. Use your force projectile to knock him off the
    ledge, and then glide over to the ledge. Directly across from this
    ledge, there is a low ledge (you can reach it from the ground level)
    where an enemy with a cannon is. Glide, run, walk, whatever over to
    this ledge, and defeat him. Then climb up the wall behind where he was
    standing, and head down the path. Defeat the enemies here, while
    following the path. Climb up the wall at the end of the path, and
    defeat the two large enemies to remove the blue wall that is blocking
    your way. Continue along this path, and you will activate a checkpoint,
    and another cut scene will play out, involving Raziel and Kain. Head
    left from where you're standing, and get on the platform where the
    Light Reaver recharge is. Head up the platform until you reach a wall,
    and high jump up to the next platform. Now, head left, defeating the
    enemies until you reach a climbing wall. Climb up the wall, and two
    humans, and two very strong enemies will confront you. After beating
    the enemies, head to the end of the path and climb up the wall. There
    will be a Dark Reaver recharge here, and a few enemies. Head towards
    the door at the end of the path, and you will be confronted by three
    large enemies. After beating them, head up the stair to activate a
    checkpoint, use the Dark Reaver to shoot the Sentry Eye over the door.
    When the eye rolls back, run forward and use the Dark Reaver to open
    the door. Enter, and the door will close behind you. Welcome to the:
    
    =====================
    22. Air Forge
    =====================
    
    	After the cut scene, head up the stairs to your left or right,
    and use the Light Reaver recharger behind either wall, to turn the Soul
    Reaver into the Light Reaver. Now, walk out onto the middle platform
    (the one that juts out into the room.) Stand on the Light Reaver symbol
    on the floor, and use the Light Reaver to shoot a projectile at the
    gold, glowing area on the pillar in front of you. After the short cut
    scene, glide across the gap to the platform directly across from you.
    Shift to the spectral realm, and pass through the gate. Head down the
    short hallway, and to your right. Activate the checkpoint that's near
    the Blue Portal, and then use the Blue Portal to shift back to the
    Material Realm. Head down the hall, and two large enemies will
    materialize, blocking your path with a blue wall. Beat them, and
    proceed into the next room. Beat the enemies here to get a Blue Air
    Forge symbol. Pick it up, and use it to unlock the door in front of
    you. You will activate a checkpoint as you walk into the room. You are
    now in the main room of the Air Forge. After the short cut scene, drop
    down the ledge below, and locate the door with the Soul Reaver symbol
    on it (if you land all the way at ground level, climb the wall with the
    Soul Reaver symbol on it, then head down the hallway in front of the
    climbing wall and you'll find it.) Use the Soul Reaver to open the
    door, and enter the room beyond it. The door will close behind you.
    Defeat the enemies here to get the next Blue Air Forge symbol. Use it
    to open the door at the other end of the room, and proceed down the
    hallway behind it. There will be a short cut scene to give you an idea
    of where you need to go.  Shift to the Spectral Realm, and climb up the
    block that slid out of the wall when you changed worlds (the block I'm
    referring to has a carving of a face on it, with something that looks
    like a ball below it. The block is on the left side of the room; don't
    use the right one, unless you already have the Light Reaver.) Use this
    block to get up to the next level of the room. Now, use the blue portal
    to shift back to the Material Realm. To the right of the portal there
    is a Light Reaver Recharge, and to the Left there is a staircase. In
    the middle of the wall on this side of the room, there is a vent
    blowing air. Stand in front of this while facing the opposite side of
    the room. High jump, and glide to the opposite side of the room.  To
    your left is a Dark Reaver recharge, and to your left is a set of
    stairs. In front of you is a vent similar to the one that was blowing
    air on the other side of the room, but this one is closed. Use the
    action button to open it, and then use the Dark Reaver recharge. Glide
    back to the other side of the room using this newly opened vent, and
    head up the stairs. Shoot the Sentry Eye with the Dark Reaver, and run
    past it, up the stairs, and down a small hallway on the left. There's a
    Purple Flame altar here. Shove the Dark Reaver into it to activate the
    Dark Bridge. Cross about halfway over the Dark Bridge, and then glide
    down to your left (to the side with the Light Reaver Recharge.) Open
    the air vent on this side the same way you opened the one on the other
    side. Now, glide back across to the Dark Reaver recharge side, and head
    up the stairs. Use the Light Reaver to open the door. Now head up the
    stairs and to the right, and cross the Dark Bridge. In this darkened
    room, use the Light Reaver to shoot the small, glowing yellow spot
    towards the ceiling. This will illuminate the room, and cause blood to
    flow from the mural on the wall. You can now take the Blue Heart from
    the Mural. Head back to the main room, and drop down to the lowest
    level. Head down the path with the two Blue Stones on both sides of the
    entrance, and place the Blue Heart in the body, which is on top of the
    Blue Air Altar. This will activate the Blue Wind tunnel. Now, head back
    to the main room, and climb the wall with the Light Reaver symbol on
    it. Head down the hall, and defeat the enemy. Now, use the Light Reaver
    to open the door. Defeat the enemies here to get a Blue Air Forge
    symbol, and use it to open the door. Head down the hallway, and climb
    up either the left or the right side of the structure in front of you.
    Head out towards the Purple Flame altar, and then shift to the Spectral
    Plane. High Jump, and glide across towards the right ledge on the
    opposite side of the room (you can see the Blue Portal over there.) Use
    the Blue Portal to shift back to the Material Plane, and then locate
    the Dark Reaver recharger. Use this to change the Soul Reaver to the
    Dark Reaver. Glide back to the other side of the room (or jump down,
    and climb back up) and use the Dark Reaver to activate the Dark Bridge.
    Now, use the Light Reaver recharge right behind you to change the Dark
    Reaver to the Light Reaver, and head across the bridge. There are some
    pillars near the front of this platform, which you can high jump up, to
    get up to a higher part of the blowing air. Turn around until you face
    the exit which was in the cut scene (you can spot it easily, it's a
    dark room with a gold ball glowing towards the top of it), and high
    jump and glide across to the room. Use the Light Reaver to shoot the
    glowing gold spot. Walk forward after the cut scene and take the Green
    Heart. Head back to the main room once again, drop down to the lowest
    floor, and head down the tunnel with the Green Gems on both sides of
    it. Head up the Green Altar and place the heart into the body. Now, the
    Green Wind tunnel will be active. Now, head back to the main room, use
    the Dark Reaver recharge, and climb up the wall with the Dark Reaver
    symbol on it. Head down the hallway, defeat the enemy, and use the Dark
    Reaver to open the door. Defeat the enemies in this room to get a Blue
    Air Forge symbol, and use it to open the door in the back. Climb up the
    wall, either on the left or the right, and jump over it (this will
    allow you to avoid the Sentry Eye, which is located on the other side
    of the open doorway directly in front of you.) Head over to the left
    side, hop up, and shove the Dark Reaver into the Purple Flame altar in
    the ground. Run across the Dark Bridge quickly, as it only lasts for a
    limited time. At the end of the bridge will be a block in the wall,
    which you can pull out. Pull it out, and, when the Dark Bridge fades,
    it will fall down. Move the block until it is against the front wall of
    the room, in the center (opposite the Sentry Eye.)  If you have a hard
    time finding this place, look around for a Dark Reaver symbol on a
    gate, which is just above your head. You need to use the block as
    something to stand on to open this gate. Once you've found it, use the
    Dark Reaver to open the gate. Stand in front of the Light Reaver
    recharge located inside the gate, and use the Dark Reaver to blind the
    Sentry Eye. Now, quickly, use the Light Reaver recharge located inside
    to change the Dark Reaver to the Light Reaver. Now, run as quickly as
    possible past the Sentry Eye. Head either left or right, and climb back
    up the pillars of this wall. Stand so that you are in front of the
    blowing air, facing the exit, which the cut scene showed you (it's a
    dark room at the top of the area, with a small yellow glowing dot in
    it.) High jump and glide across to the room. Use the Light Reaver to
    shot the small yellow glowing orb. Grab the Orange heart, and run back
    out of the room past the Sentry Eye (there will be a cut scene showing
    the eye roll up, so you know it's safe to run past it.) Head back to
    the main room, drop down, and head down the hallway with the Orange
    Gems on either side of the entrance. Head up the Orange Altar, and
    place the orange heart into the body. After a short cut scene, the
    Orange Wind tunnel will be active. Head back to the main room, and jump
    and glide. Hold glide and the wind tunnel currents will carry you back
    up top. Land on the giant, open-mouthed snake, and look around. You
    will see to statues on the walls. One with a yellow orb in it's mouth,
    the other with a purple. If you have the Light Reaver, use it to shoot
    the yellow orb first. If you have the Dark Reaver, shoot the purple orb
    first. Then, drop down to the bottom floor, and change Reavers. Glide
    back up to the top, and shoot the remaining orb. The Air Forge will now
    be active after a short cut scene. Step forward and plunge the Soul
    Reaver into the forge, and gain the Air Reaver, along with a larger
    life gauge. Proceed towards the door that closed during the cut scene
    (it's directly behind Raziel.) Notice the large circle on the ground,
    surrounded by three smaller circles? These are the air altars. Plunge
    the Air Reaver into the center of it, to activate an updraft. Glide
    upward, and you'll find a round pipe over the door. Land on the pipe,
    and walk through it. Drop down on the other side. Head down the hallway
    to activate the next checkpoint. When you reach the door that is
    cracked, use the Air Reaver to fire a projectile at it to destroy it.
    Pass through the opened doorway, and head back down to the lower level
    in this area. Use the Soul Reaver to open the Soul Reaver door that is
    in front of you.
    
    ======================
    23: Uschtenheim
    ======================
    
    You're now back in Uschtenheim. On your way back through Uschtenheim,
    you'll encounter a closed gate while trying to reenter the city. Just
    high jump up on top of the wall, defeat the guards, and hold the lever
    to open it. It's also a good idea to use the save point here, since
    you've done so much and haven't been able to save lately. Head towards
    the gate that you originally entered Uschtenheim through. Hold the
    lever on the left side of the gate to open it. You need to head back to
    the Time Stream Device in the Swamp, so head back to the Swamp, and
    I'll pick the guide back up there.
    
    ===================
    24. Swamp
    ===================
    	Upon entering the Swamp again, you'll activate a checkpoint.
    Proceed forward on the path until you reach save point, which you can
    use if you need to. Just past that will be an archway, which you should
    pass through, then head in a large U-shape, until you reach the second
    archway. Pass through this, and follow the path until you activate the
    next checkpoint. To the right of the checkpoint will be the Time
    Streaming Device's door (near the edge of the room.) Use the Air Reaver
    to fire a projectile at the door, which will destroy it. Proceed
    through this newly opened pathway until you reach an Air Reaver altar
    in the floor. Plunge the Air Reaver into the altar to activate it,
    causing an updraft to occur. Use the updraft to glide high up into the
    room, and over the pit located in front of the altar. Follow the
    circular path until you reach another set of doors, which will slide
    open when you approach them. Walk through these doors, and you will be
    in the:
    
    ==================================
    25. Time Streaming Device
    ==================================
    	Walk up to the purple orb, which is the Time Streaming Device.
    Press the action button to activate it, and a cut scene will play out.
    Raziel emerges in an unknown era. Head out the doors behind you,
    activate the checkpoint, and follow the circular path around to the
    exit. Jump down, and then use the climbing wall in front of you to
    reach the ledge. Exit through the doors in front of you, and, after a
    cut scene, you will be back in:
    
    ===================
    26. The Swamp
    ===================
     	Head back towards Uschtenheim through the swamp (basically, head
    back the way you came, before you used the Time Streaming Device.) Use
    the save point if you need to.  After passing by the Save Point, there
    will be a cut scene with Raziel. After the cut scene, head right
    towards the wall. Locate the Air Reaver altar on the ground, and plunge
    the Air Reaver into it. Use the updraft to glide up to the ledge, and
    go through the opening in the wall. Follow the path, activating a
    checkpoint as you pass it. A little past the checkpoint, you will
    witness a cut scene in which Raziel sees the Sarafan Warriors. Use the
    Soul Reaver to destroy them, then use the climbing wall towards the
    right side of the room to make your way up the next path. There will be
    Sarafan Warriors here too. Head down the path, destroying the Sarafan
    Warriors as you go. In this next large room, there will be three
    enemies that shoot magic, and three with weapons. Use the Soul Reaver
    to destroy the ones using magic first. Now you can easily use your
    hands or a weapon to destroy the others. Either head up the path to the
    left, or climb the climbing wall in the back of the room, and follow
    the path along to the gates of:
    
    =====================
    27. Uschtenheim
    =====================
    	High jump on top of the archway in front of you, defeat the
    guard, then hold the lever to open the gate below. Enter through the
    gate, and there will be a short cut scene of Uschtenheim. Now, proceed
    to the opposite end of the city, towards the back gate. If you need to,
    use the Save Point in the middle of the city. When you reach the gate,
    hold the lever to raise it. Follow the path until you reach a large
    round room with four enemies. After defeating them, high jump up to the
    low ledge on the northwest side of the room, and climb the wall behind
    it.  Follow the path, and then climb the wall at the end of it. Follow
    this path, activate the save point, and watch the cut scene at the edge
    of Janos Audron's mountain retreat.  Jump down onto the frozen lake,
    and shift to the Spectral Realm. Jump down through one of the holes in
    the ice, and head North until you find a tunnel under the "water." Jump
    up in it, and shift to the Material Plane using the Blue Portal located
    inside it. Swim to the end of the tunnel, head upward; hop out of the
    water and into:
    
    =================================
    28. Janos Audron's Retreat
    =================================
     	Head to the center of this area. Look around and you will notice
    a Sentry Eye guarding something, directly in front of you. Avoid it and
    head left to activate the checkpoint. Run up the ramp, and follow the
    path around.  Move out to the platform in the center of the room, and
    then glide across to the platform where the Air Reaver recharge is.
    Recharge the Air Reaver, and glide back across to the center platform.
    Head straight, and follow the snow-covered path. At the end of the
    path, use the Air Reaver to shoot a projectile to destroy the cracked
    wall in front of you.  Drop down onto the frozen lake, and head left.
    Jump up onto the ledge, use the Soul Reaver to defeat the two Sarafan
    Warriors here, and then use the Air Reaver to activate the Air Reaver
    Altar located on the ground at one end of the ledge. Glide up to the
    next platform, defeat the Sarafan Warrior, and use the Dark Reaver
    recharger. Now, glide back down to the frozen lake, and re=enter the
    passageway you had just emerged from. Head back to the center of the
    room, and shoot the Sentry Eye with the Dark Reaver. Run forward and
    grab the urn. Now return to the center of the room. Use the urn to
    scoop some blood out of the pool in the middle of the room. Now, go
    back up the ramp, and follow the path to the center of the upper level.
    Pour the blood from the urn into the pool located here. After a short
    cut scene, a ramp will appear in front of you. Follow this path until
    the next cut scene plays. Head down the ramp, and use the Light Reaver
    recharger. Now move up the ramp next to the recharger, and head to your
    right. Turn, and face the gap. Jump and glide over to the platform
    across from you. Now, move out of this platform, towards a door with a
    face and a red circle on it. Turn to face left, and look around until
    you see two pink icons suspended on chains. Move around until you line
    them up, and shoot at them with the Light Reaver. Assuming you have
    them lined up correctly, you will see a short cut scene, and the bridge
    will drop down. Now, head back to that side of the room, cross the
    bridge, and defeat the enemy to get the Red Shield. Use it on the door.
    Now, head back across the bridge, and turn right at the first
    intersection. Locate an urn near the wall, pick it up, and fill it with
    blood at the nearby pool. Now, head back across the bridge, through the
    doorway you opened with the Red Shield. Head straight, and use the urn
    to fill the empty pool. After the cut scene, head left and use the Air
    Reaver recharge. Now head back to the pool you just filled, and go up
    the stairs in front of it. Use the Air Reaver to unblock the path,
    where the cracked wall is. Continue down the path, and use the Air
    Reaver to break the next wall. Now, drop back down to the bottom level,
    activate the Air Reaver altar on the floor, and use the Light Reaver
    recharge. Use the Air Altar's updraft to head back up, and head through
    the first door you broke open. Locate the metal fence in this area, and
    stand to the left of it. From this position, locate the two pink orbs,
    on chains (like the ones you shot earlier.) Line them up and shoot them
    with the Light Reaver to activate the next bridge. Across this bridge
    is another empty pool, so take an urn and head back down to the last
    blood pool you filled up. Fill up the urn, and head back up, across the
    bridge, and fill this blood pool up. After the cut scene, head across
    the new bridge and use the Dark Reaver recharge. Head back, past the
    blood pool, and across the bridge, to the intersection. Turn right, and
    shoot the Sentry Eye with the Dark Reaver. Run past it, defeat the
    enemy, grab the Red Shield, and quickly run back before the Sentry Eye
    rolls over. If the eye does roll over, just jump down to the ground
    level before it has a chance to shoot you. In any case, head back to
    the sealed Red Door (it's on the second level, to the right, before the
    Sentry Eye.) Use the Red Shield to unseal the door. In this room there
    will be another empty blood pool, so, head back, find an urn, fill it
    with blood at the last pool you filled, bring it back here, and fill
    this pool with blood. Now, head back down to the Air Reaver recharge.
    Use it, and activate the nearby Air Reaver altar. Use the updraft to
    get back up to the 2nd level (you'll land right by the blood pool you
    just filled.) Now, walk up the stairs, and door right. Walk forward a
    little bit, and turn right (it's a gap between two "doors" on the inner
    wall.) Look around and you'll see a gold disc with the Air Reaver
    symbol on it. Use the Air Reaver to destroy this disc. Now, drop down
    to the ground level and use the Light Reaver recharge. Use the Air
    Reaver altars to head back up to the top level, and shoot the two pink
    orbs that were behind the gold Air Reaver disc (don't forget to line
    the orbs up, or they won't lower the bridge!) Now, turn left and head
    farther down this hall until you encounter a door with a Red Shield on
    it. Turn right, walk forward a bit, and turn left. There is a
    half=bridge here. A piece of walkway on either side sticks out, with a
    gap in the middle. High jump, and glide across this. Head left, and
    defeat the enemy with the Red Shield. Now, head left again towards the
    Red Shield door, and use the Red Shield to open it. Now, turn around
    and head back through the room where you fought the Red Shield enemy.
    Head straight down this hall, and turn right just past where you glided
    across. You'll notice two pink orbs suspended, one of them is swinging.
    Use the Light Reaver to shoot these. Time the shot so that they're
    lined up, and you'll drop the final bridge down. Now, head back to the
    area where you walked up the stairs to the third level. Head down the
    other hallway, and you'll encounter another Red Door. Face left, and
    glide to the ledge on the other side of the door. Fight the enemy here
    to get another Red Shield. Note that there is an empty blood pool at
    the end of this room. Turn around, and use the Red Shield to open the
    door. Now, find an urn, fill it with blood from the last blood fountain
    you filled, and fill the empty fountain. Now, find another urn, fill it
    with blood from the pool you just filled, and head across the bridge
    that just formed. Follow the path until you reach the next empty pool.
    Head up the newly formed stairs, and use the Light Reaver to open the
    door. There will be a long cut scene between Raziel and Janos Audron.
    You will now be in the:
    
    =================
    29. Fire Forge
    =================
    
           **** WARNING PLEASE READ "Fire Forge" IN THE GLITCHES AND
    PRECAUTIONS SECTION OF THIS FAQ BEFORE STARTING THE FIRE FORGE PUZZLE!
    THANK YOU! ****
    
    	Drop down, and locate the torch located at the back of the room.
    Pick up the torch, and ignite it on the open flame nearby. The room
    will begin to fill with blood. Floating platforms will begin to rise up
    from the ground. Glide across to each platform, until you reach the
    cauldron with the wood in it. Ignite it, and the Light Reaver recharge
    and three Air Reaver altars will emerge. Swim across to it and use it.
    Now, use the Light Reaver to shoot the large, pink crystal on the
    ceiling. This will drain the blood. Drop down, and use the Air Reaver
    recharge on the ground, before the blood drains back into the room.
    Now, when the room refills, pick any of the three Air Reaver altars,
    and thrust the Air Reaver into it (the best choice is the one farthest
    from the flame you lit.) After a cut scene, there will be three pillars
    with updrafts on them, at different heights. Use them to glide up to
    the next fire pot, and pick up a torch on the left or right side of it.
    Now, glide back down on the air streams (if you touch the blood at any
    time, you will lose the torch.) Ignite the torch on the flame at the
    end of the pillars, and glide back up. Now, ignite the fire pot. Now,
    if you want, you can swim all the way across the room. You can now
    reach the Fire Forge, but it's not yet active. To the right side of the
    Fire Forge is a save point, I suggest you use it since it's been awhile
    since you've been able to save. At any rate, head to the opposite side
    of the room (the end with the fire pot), and make sure you have the
    Light Reaver. Shoot the large pink crystal in the ceiling to drain the
    blood, and then quickly grab a torch and ignite it. Use the updrafts to
    glide all the way across the room, and land in front of the Fire Forge.
    Walk up to the center of the Fire Forge (a raised, round circle) and
    use the lit torch to ignite it. This will activate the Fire Forge.
    Plunge the Soul Reaver into the Forge, and, after a cut scene, you'll
    have the Fire Reaver, and an even larger health gauge. If you have not
    yet saved, do so now. Now, head down the hallway to the left of the
    Fire Forge, and use the Fire Reaver to open the door. There will be a
    cut scene in which you will see the Heart of Darkness ripped from Janos
    Audron, and Raziel will see his human self, which will in turn see his
    Soul Reaver form. You are now back in:
    
    =================================
    30. Uschtenheim
    =================================
    	After the cut scene, your new objective is clear: Head to the
    Sarafan Stronghold in this era, reclaim Janos Audron's heart, and the
    Soul Reaver, and restore the heart to Janos' body. Head off of the
    frozen lake, and you will encounter two of the large enemies from the
    future. After the cut scene, defeat them and continue onward. Work your
    way through Uschtenheim, watching the various cut scenes involving
    Raziel and the demons from the future. Use the save point in the town
    if you need to, and head back into the:
    
    ==================
    31. Swamp
    ==================
    	Jump down off the wall, and defeat the enemies here. Use the save
    point on the left if you need to. Just head through the swamp, battling
    the enemies, and watching the cut scenes involving the larger enemies.
    Now, activate the checkpoint and head back into:
    
    ============================
    32. Subterranean Ruins
    ============================
    	In this version of the ruins, the water has disappeared, and you
    will need to walk through them instead of swimming. Work your way down
    the path, into the room with the large statue. Defeat the large enemies
    here, and locate the Air Reaver recharger (it's on one of the walls.)
    Use it, and then find the Air Reaver altar in the middle of the room.
    Use the Air Reaver to activate it, and glide up to the ledge on top of
    the statue. Now, use the climbing wall on top of the statue to reach
    the top of it. Turn right, high jump, and glide to the ledge in front
    of you.  Head to your left, jump and glide to the next ledge, then head
    left again and glide to the final ledge. Jump up to the next ledge, and
    head into this room, and climb the wall located near the left side of
    the room.  Follow this path around, and head left, down a ramp. Follow
    the ramp and you should end up in a pool of water.  Swim along the
    path, and you will end up in the Elder God's chamber. Swim up, and jump
    out onto the platform. There will be a cut scene that involves the
    Elder God and Raziel. If you need to, use the save point behind Raziel.
    Otherwise, glide across the water in front of Raziel and through the
    doorway. Follow the path until you reach the large door with the Soul
    Reaver on it. Use the Soul Reaver to open the door. You will now be
    back at:
    
    ========================
    33. The Pillars
    ========================
    	Follow the path until you reach the Pillars themselves. Here,
    there will be a short cut scene involving Raziel and three of the
    larger demon enemies. You'll have to fight them before you can proceed,
    so be careful, since they're quite strong. Now, head up the stairs in
    front of the Pillars. Open the large double doors and pass through. You
    will now be back at:
    
    ============================
    34. The Southern Lake
    =============================
    
     Follow this path, defeating the enemies as necessary. You should know
    pretty well how to get back to the Sarafan Stronghold from this area by
    now.  At the end of the path, drop down onto the frozen lake. If you
    need to, use the save point to the right. Now, locate the Fire Reaver
    Recharger. It's located at the opposite end of the lake. Use it, and
    head back to the large doors, near the path to the save point. Now, use
    the Fire Reaver altar in front of the large set of doors. After the
    short cut scene, enough of the lake will be melted so you can open the
    doors. Now you need the Light Reaver. Head northeast, until you can see
    the Light Reaver recharger up on a cliff. Now, just located the lowest
    ledge, and jump up on it. Now, just jump up and across the ledges until
    you reach the Light Reaver recharger. Alternatively, if you high jump
    in just the right spot, near the ledge by the Light Reaver recharger,
    you will grab it and pull yourself up. At any rate, use it, and head
    back to the large doors, near the save point. Use the Light Reaver to
    shoot the pink orb over the doors to open them. Now, jump into the
    water, swim down the path, and you'll be back in:
    
    ============================
    35. Sarafan Stronghold
    ============================
    	Avoid the female enemies by swimming underwater. When you reach
    the end of the path, jump out to the right, and follow the hallway.
    There will be a short cuts scene of the door closing behind you. At the
    end of the hallway, go through the door, and you will be in a room with
    three enemies. Defeat them to raise the gate blocking the exit.  Go out
    the door, follow the hallway, and exit through the door in the left
    wall. In this room, there will be a cut scene with Raziel, the Soul
    Reaver, and Moebius. Raziel will now have the physical Soul Reaver, as
    Moebius has disabled your wraith blade. For a bonus cut scene, try to
    drop the Soul Reaver. For yet another bonus cut scene, press select to
    try to bring up the menu. Head out through the only available exit. You
    will now have to fight Malchiah and Zephon. Notice anything
    interesting? You're life won't go down no matter how much you get hit.
    After the battle, there will be a short cut scene with Raziel, as he
    realizes he is now invincible.  Now, find the short hallway with the
    only available exit located within it. You will be locked in yet
    another room, and after a short cut scene, you'll have to fight Dumah
    and Rahab. After the battle, go through the exit that opened up. Now,
    after the cut scene, you will fight Turel. After the battle, locate the
    only exit, and head on through. Go down this hallway, and through the
    exit. In this round room, you will fight your final Sarafan Warrior,
    Raziel himself. Now, the ending to the game will play out, involving
    Raziel, Kain and the Soul Reaver. This cut scene will explain the
    entire plot in one big splurge.

    what to tell you.
    
    Also, do not contact me to ask "When will you be updating your FAQ?",
    "Can you help we with this part.. I know the FAQ said not to contact
    you if it was past where you left off, but pleeeeeease?" or "Can I use
    your guide on my site" ... The FAQ is only to be on Gamefaqs.com or
    MeltMan.com. Thank you.
