Legacy of Kain: Defiance Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Defiance is by no means a flop to a great series, but it isn’t exactly a step forward. While it is nice that gamers can control both Kain and Raziel for the first time ever, the compromise of the control scheme takes some of the unique aspects away from what fans have experienced in the previous games. The graphics are above average, but I still expected more from Crystal Dynamics due to their rich past and other masterpieces.

Legacy of Kain: Defiance

The Armchair Empire

  • Excerpt: The Legacy of Kain series is a testament to how a compelling plot and good voice acting can truly enrich action games. That's not to say that the games haven't had their problems. They've been critically drubbed for issues such as their "kung-fu movie" style fighting -- no matter how many thugs, thieves or creatures of the night our protagonist encounters in an alley, they all wait patiently for their turn to fight.

  • Excerpt: Building upon the previous plots in the series, Defiance effectively acts as a culmination of both storylines. Way too convoluted and detailed to go into right now, I’ll simply say that newcomers to the series should probably run out and track down the other titles before jumping into this title, because you’re missing out on film quality storytelling.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: It will be nice for many fans to finally get an ending to the game, whether it is good or bad is up to the individual. I consider the ending a mixed bag. It does leave itself open for the possibility of another game so perhaps we'll still see more from the series.

Legacy of Kain: Defiance

Game Over Online
15 December 2003
  • Excerpt: Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but in the case of Raziel and Kain, that meal will probably come with a seething side order of contempt. The two anti-heroes of the Legacy of Kain and Soul Reaver series have tracked their enemies (and each other) across Nosgoth and even time itself, seeking retribution for the crimes committed against them. But this is much more than a simple vampire story.

Legacy of Kain - Defiance

Gamecell
28 August 2006
  • Conclusion: All in all, I really liked Defiance; it plays well and although the story won't set the world alight or tread any new territory, but it does pull a surprise or two, and it is enjoyable to follow to see what happens next. Switching between planes as Raziel is still cool, and the added feature of two characters to play with mixes things up nicely.
  • Pros: Nice levels, good combat and non-stressful game-play., Good use of Xbox's graphical and audio ability.
  • Cons: Erm.... the series hasn't really changed much over the years?

  • Excerpt: En av verdens mest kjente og fryktede mytiske figurer har gjort populærkulturen til et mer spennende sted gjennom bøker, filmer og dataspill. Mer populær enn sin hyggelige fetter varulven, og utvilsomt mer sexy enn zombier. Han har blitt spilt av store navn som Tom Cruise og Brad Pit, og blitt rundjult av blonde tenåringsjenter. Vampyrer er monstrenes rockestjerner med stort drag på damene og skikkelig sting i bittet.

Legacy of Kain : Defiance

XboxFrance
20 July 2005
  • Conclusion: Plusieurs années après son apparition, la saga Legacy of Kain nous révèle enfin son dénouement. Toujours aussi riche, le scénario regorge de réponses à nos questions et c’est avec une pointe de tristesse que l’on assiste aux dernières minutes de cet épilogue. Graphiquement splendide et doté d’une ambiance sonore réussie, Legacy of Kain Defiance nous propose des combats parfaitement chorégraphiés ainsi qu’une jouabilité par moment crispante.
  • Pros: Des environnements de toute beauté et des personages charismatiques, Le scénario toujours aussi riche et passionnant !, Les combats jouissifs avec Kain et les nombreux puzzles avec Raziel
  • Cons: La jouabilité lors des passages de plate-formes !, Les musiques répétitives sur la longueur, Difficile pour un profane de comprendre toutes les subtilités de la saga !

  • Conclusion: Wer befürchtet hat, die Serie entwickelt sich zu einem reinrassigen Hack´n Slay, dem kann ich Entwarnung geben. Es gibt auch in Defiance genug Rätselkost. Besonders die Abschnitte mit Raziel erfordern einiges an Kombinationsvermögen. Eine gute Orientierungsgabe sollte man allerdings mitingen - in den später sehr weitläufigen Szenarios wird eine zuschaltbare Karte häufiger vermisst.
