Product Description

Product Description

Legacy of Kain: Defiance is the next instalment in the multi-million selling Legacy of Kain series. For the first time in the series both Kain and Raziel will be available as playable characters in all of their blood-sucking and soul-devouring glory. They are pitched against the Hylden; a force so evil that these two embittered rivals must unite. Taking on the role of Kain and Raziel in alternating chapters, you must battle through a world loaded with conflict and intrigue in order to defeat the dark forces that threaten to condemn the land of Nosgoth to eternal damnation.

Legacy of Kain: Defiance focuses much more on combat as Kain and Raziel confront hordes of monstrous enemies in fierce, fast-paced battles. The completely "revamped" combat system promises to be accessible, responsive and satisfying, allowing for non-stop action and thrilling combo moves unique to each character. The inclusion of the new "telekinesis" feature plays a fundamental role in not only deepening the combat system, but level and puzzle progression as well. A redesigned in-game camera offers dynamic views of both the action and breathtaking environments.

Review

"Elegantly-honed combat action and the power of telekinesis make Defiance the finest instalment yet. 8/10." -- Official PlayStation 2 Magazine

"The best of the brood... worth sinking your teeth into." -- GamesMaster Magazine

The Legacy of Kain must stand as the greatest fantasy epic in the popular media that is the least known. The Saga of the Pillars of Nosgoth deepens and reveals more and more fascinating backstory with every passing episode.
Legacy of Kain: Defiance is the game in which the two strands - of Kain, the blood drinker and Raziel, the Soul Reaver - are united, with both characters playable for the first time. Soul Reaver (1) was the first 3D game in the series, and introduced some really original gameplay, most notably the shifting between the Material Realm, the day to day world of the living, and the Spectral Realm - where walls, floors and pillars would distort and shift, sometimes revealing new paths to inaccessible areas. In his pursuit of Kain, Raziel had to find and defeat each of his brothers in brilliantly designed boss battles. In addition there was the Citadel of the Humans, which was not directly related to the plot, but where your behaviour to the humans would determine whether they worshipped you or fled you in terror. Nothing did the ego more good than to watch NPCs fall to their knees at your appearance! However, the depth and beauty of the storyline and the visciousness of the battles was sometimes at odds with the oddly prosaic puzzles that had to be solved for Raziel to progress. Sometimes it seemed that Raziel's saga was advanced not by his ability to switch between realms or his prowess with the Reaver blade, but by his talent for solving jigsaw puzzles! Soul Reaver 2, heavily anticipated (and even more so after it was cancelled for the Dreamcast) was expected to be bigger and better than Soul Reaver 1, but transpired in fact to be little more than a transitional game designed to deepen the backstory of Nosgoth, but very little else.

The LOK series has to be one of the most well thought out and in-depth story lines for the PS2. I would deffinatley recommend plaything through all of the games (starting with blood omen 1). My favourite has to be Blood Omen 2 however, Defiance comes second. The combat system is simple and easy to master and also looks really cool. As well as this there are puzzles as well which means the game isn't entirely fighting. All I can say is I truly hope that they make another and if you play through the games you will too. A must have game!

Legacy of kain spans over five chapters from Blood omen1,2,Soul reaver 1,2 and Defiance. ps2 fans can be happy to know that you can get all of the Legacy of Kain series on ps2 and I recomend you do because if you know northing about the story then Defiance is abit of a leap forward. By going throught the story you see how Kain and Raziel came to be and why they fight each other. Because Kain is much older than Raziel the Blood omen series is set before Raziels time. In the Blood omen series you see Kains change into a vampire and Kains rise to power in Blood omen 2. In Soul reaver you see why Raziel hates Kain and why he wants revenge. I my self have only completed Blood omen 2 and Defiance Because the voice acting and story are so fantastic by playing thought the Legacy of Kain series the story begins to build by the time you have got to Defiance you will have to know how the story ends. Unfortunatly I know how the story ends but because in Defiance you play as both Raziel and Kain I wanted to know more about Raziel so i have bought soul reaver 1 and plan to by Soul reaver 2 and Blood omen 1. So my advice to you is buy the game if you have played thought the series or at least half the series but not if you havent played any of them. (please note that Blood omen and Soul reaver are on ps1 not ps2)If you have played thought the story you probaly have a favirate character mine is Kain.

Another fine instalment from Eidos. Any fan of the LOK series will find this game just as good as the last instalments. Also, I see no reason why a newbie to the LoK series will dislike it too!!
The story follows on from the end of the last game, Soul Reaver 2. It follows both of the two main characters of the series, Kain the vampire and Raziel the Wraith. Both battling to find their destiny in the land of Nosgoth.
There are a few differences in this game form the previous ones. One of the best parts of this game is the fact that it follows both Kain and Raziel, both being playable characters and they both follow their own story and both have their own unique characteristics. There is a new combat system too, that introduces a cool new combo system along with some new and old favourite moves. Kain has his vastly improved telekinesis abilities where you can have fun telekinetically throwing your prey around the screen, and Raziel can shift between the materiel realm of the living and the spiritual realm of the dead.
So who will win the battle of the Soul Reavers? The blood thirsty Kain, with his material Soul Reaver blade, or the soul harvester Raziel, with his spiritual Soul Reaver blade.
Buy it, play it and fulfil Kain and Raziel's destiny!!
