Reviewed: Legacy of Kain: Defiance
Producer: Eidos
Required System: Xbox / Playstation 2

One major thing missing in many games -- sometimes noticeably -- is decent storyline. Crystal Dynamics, working with Eidos Interactive, has been a small but vocal force working to change that, with the Legacy of Kain series. Originally a one-shot game (Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain) by Silicon Knights, the storyline was taken up and expounded on by Crystal Dynamics, giving us the awesome Soul Reaver series and a slightly less powerful, but still fun, Blood Omen 2.

Despite the good storyline, gamers of various groups have found things to not like about the line. The gameplay in Soul Reaver was fun, with some annoyances for those who don't like block puzzles. Soul Reaver 2 had some upgrades but lacked boss battles. Blood Omen 2 grated on gameplay fans of the Soul Reaver line.

Enter Legacy of Kain: Defiance, which was originally Soul Reaver 3. All in all, this game has what it takes to become a classic -- the fighting system is fixed, boss battles are present, storyline is everywhere, and players will surely enjoy it.
