GamesRadar: "Fighting computer-controlled monsters is one thing. Fighting against other players? That’s the true test of a shooter’s strengths. Any annoyances with hit-detection, controls, latency, or what have you become blatantly obvious the moment another player is the one shooting back. Being able to see just how well the shooter element works is what made us so excited to check out the PvP in Defiance, Trion’s upcoming MMO/shooter hybrid."
