    Defiance is so good that one cannot even express how amazing it is in 120 characters. Boo-yeah.

    I couldn't wait for the next Legacy Of Kain/Soul Reaver game after beating Soul Reaver 1 & 2 to see what happens next in the story. I must say gamespot were pretty rough on the score. 6.9 is WAY too low, but they do have... Read Full Review
