Legacy of Kain: Defiance | ActionTrip Retro Review

Hard-core fans will love the story and eventually, if they're persistent and patient enough they'll get over the horrendous controls and camera and other gameplay drawbacks mentioned in this review. Those of you who are new to the series will undoubtedly be disappointed by the fact that Crystal Dynamics hasn't done a MUCH better job at porting Defiance to the PC. (Legacy of Kain: Defiance, PC) 6.9/10

6.9 for lok defiance? no way dude. much higher. great end to a series with twists and turns no one saw coming. best voice work in a series ever.

one of the richest most elaborate and twisted stories told. to me, only 3 games stories were timeless classics, Legacy of Kain, Metal Gear Solid: Solid Snake and Final Fantasy VII.

I very distinctly remember my playthrough of this game...
The last two hours or so were incredibly engrossing both story and gameplay wise, and provided a satisfying end to the Soul Reaver franchise. Everything prior to that however was pure, routine-based filler. So many elements of the game were recycled over and over again; it was infuriating.

The last act saved it.

Really? Why can't anyone who reviews games (especially old games) solely compare it to games of their time? This game (for it's time) did everything right, from graphics, to voice acting and story telling.

You can't complain about things like shoddy camera control when the game is as old as it was.
6.9 is not what this game deserves and shouldn't be done justice with way the writer served it.
