Summary: So, to sum it up Defiance is basically DMC with everything other than the storyline/lore being horrific. The camera is infuriating at times and is more of a challenge than the actual game. The game-play itself is tragic, it quickly becomes an irritating platformer with dull, repetitive fights you have to deal with which you care not for. There are simple tricks to make most enemies incredibly easy and faster to kill specifically jumping and down-slashing.
Summary: Legacy of Kain: Defiance is by far the best in the entire series of Legacy of Kain games. The first thing you'll note is the very great graphics that this game brings, everything is beautifully detailed and clear, all running very smoothly and beautifully. Another thing that really makes this game shine is the fact that you can play as both Raziel AND Kain. Both characters are available, each with their own version of the Soul Reaver.
