MG writers Stephen Hanley and Jake Mulholland get down and dirty with the Defiance PC beta to see what the fuss is about.
This game looks good
I was actually going to say that it looks about the same as City of Heroes, or any other 3rd person MMO from about 2008. MMOs can't look as good as their not-MMO counterparts... but this one honestly didn't look all that great even for MMOs. The shooting mechanics didn't seem exciting at all. It was drab to the point of my feeling like I could almost read the "Bob shoots an ugly mutant for 38 damage!" going on under the hood. With the vehicles, it kinda seemed like what a Halo MMO might be like.. a Halo MMO that would bury the IP.
