A step backwards from its predecessor, but still good

Steven Rinck, Amazon
23 September 2005
  • Summary: This is the latest (but hopefully not last) game in the Legacy of Kain Series. It is also the only game in which you get to play both Kain and Raziel. I was really excited about this game at first, hearing they had revamped the combat system, about the only thing not great from the previous games. The actual result was only really a slight improvement. They modeled it after Devil May Cry (A game near and dear to my heart), but its execution was not good.

Great storyline and characters, but needs more polish

  • Summary: Until now, the Legacy Of Kain games have failed to leave a positive impression on me. The storyline and voice acting caught my interest, but the gameplay and graphics were mediocre at best. When I heard about Defiance being an improvement over the last installments however, I decided to give the series another look. While it is true that Defiance sports better scenery and more exciting combat than it's predecessors, there are still some aspects that need refining.

Not as good as I remembered

Vincent, Amazon
26 February 2013
  • Summary: Played this game when it came out years ago, bought a second-hand copy again out of nostalgia and it didn't live up to the memory. The plot of this series is fantastic, but unfortunately the clunky controls, back-and-forth objectives and horrible (unadjustable) camera angles ruin the playing experience. Recommend Blood Omen 2 instead for fans of the series.

Fangs for the memory

M. Sockel, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Look, I've played all the Legacy of Kain/Blood Omen/Soul Reaver games from the PS1 onwards. And they are great - kinda a bit of Resident Evil but with more a supernatural bent. The graphics are always good, the stories engaging, and playability is excellent. As usual, LoK:Defiance suffers with a lack of replay factor, but that is just one niggle. What gets me, and I mean REALLY gets me, is the storyline.

flawed!

Chief., amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I would agree that LOKD is a stunning looking game. It is a worthy addition to the series in terms of storyline. the action is more or less linier, and whilst the combat soon gets repetative, you will rarelt tire of grabbing some poor shmoe and sinking your fangs into him or blasting him onto a spike with your tk. The real problem with this game is the sheer number of bugs in the programming.

Great game;but the story is starting to fall apart....

  • Summary: Before I start my review,I want to make it clear that I have played LOK:Defiance all the way through to the ending.I have also played through all the other blood omen/soul reaver games.But I have to say,the story just leaves the player with more questions. The few that are actually answered don't really make much sense. This story is just not that good anymore... It's become so complex,that it even goes against it's own storyline.(WARNING!

Legacy of Kain

gatoazul2, Ciao

  • Excerpt: La verdad es que Soul Reaver 2, the legacy of Kain tiene un argumento complicado, la historia del personaje se tiene que remontar a videojuegos anteriores a este y en principio es un poco complicada de seguir la historia, pero si hacemos caso omiso a ese aspecto pues es un juego mas de ir luchando y matando enemigos avanzando por diferentes mundos.

Dos en contra del destino

lokero38, Ciao

  • Excerpt: La habitual cámara tras el personaje que nos encontrábamos en todos los juegos de la serie, en este caso ha sido cambiada por una cámara al más puro estilo Devil May Cry o Resident Evil. Hasta aquí podríamos hablar de una visión más cinemática del juego. El único problema es que no hay mapa y en todos los juegos de Capcom esto existe para no desorientarse.
  • Pros: sus graficos y sonido
  • Cons: nada, es un juego muy jugable
