PCGMedia - Defiance review

Defiance, as it stands, is a stunningly uninteresting game; cynically cashing in on the popularity of popularized sci-fi games like Borderlands 2 in order to tempt gamers to purchase premium bolt-on content and XP boosts. It is another example of a developer ticking all the boxes, offering the minimum, and throwing together something marketable. This wouldn’t be such a bad thing if the game were any good. (Defiance, PC) 2.5/5

Yep. £34.99 on steam (typical pc game price £29.99) plus a bunch of overpriced pay to win shit built in. Glad I didn't buy this shit, feel sorry for suckers who did. Suckers.

I think you need to fix your face first before making comments on N4G.

I feel sorry for the suckers (you included) that bash a game without knowing the slightest bit on it. There's no pay to win microtransactions in this game. No subscription either. So for an MMO $60 is reasonable.

This game is awesome and VERY, VERY fun to play. Some areas generic, yes. But the fun level is through the roof.

lol this guy is trolling so hard, the game is no pay to win whatsoever. the only thing u can buy with solely paid currency is cosmetic clothing which has zero impact on gameplay.

i would have to agree it isnt pay to win

I'm not here to discredit the authors opinion, but I absolutely love this game so far.

It feels exactly how I hoped it would(twss).

If you like what you've seen of the game, go for it.

I've had a blast playing solo, which is the best compliment I can give to an mmo.

Co-op amps the fun up sevenfold.

I really hope that the show is good, because the game sure as hell is.

100% agree with ya buddy, I can'T get enough of itT this seems to be (although not me)a case of people hating on this game for many stupid reasons including the graphics not being great, I can't help but feel that this game deserves alot more respect. If I had to sum it up in one word it would be "fun" which puzzles me as I really can't understand what people are missing.

Im also enjoying it very much. Just got done playing for a few hours in fact.
SolidDuck  +   911d ago
Ya I think it's really fun so far.
I knew it would flop (much like the TV Show).
DeadPixel  +   909d ago
How has the TV show flopped when it's not been aired yet lol

Haven't posted in a while, but this game is fun. Turn on number damage, play around with modding weapons for cool effects, jump on a dune buggy and ride! Its not a typical MMO, its not a typical shooter, so due to its hybrid nature its getting a lot of flak. But I m enjoying it for what it is. 20 hours in and thats good for me as I jump from game to game like nobody's business.

Ive only had it for about two days so i still have some playing to do but ive enjoyed the game so far. A 2.5 doesn't seem fair.

This is a great game! Very addictive and some great teaming of players online.well worth the $60 cost.

What a Joke review.. He starts out by saying this is a cash in on Borderlands 2?

LMFAO this game has been in development for 5 years..

this is an awesome MMO and even at launch I wouldnt rate it lower then 8/10

He also says PvP feels tacked on? ya right, he must be getting smoked.. Theres like 4 different maps and pvp modes.. The combat is surprisingly balanced to a degree


lol what a pathetic joke review

4 maps isnt a lot.

There are no classes you can spec however you want, the choice is purely cosmetic.
RogueSmurf  +   910d ago
added following to clarify reasoning

"SyFy could have helped out reception of the game through allowing the title to expose more of the lore, but because they're clearly showing how in control they are, Defiance currently feels like an expansive albeit cheap third person shooter, with bare-bones third person shooter mechanics, that basically servers as a marketing campaign for the main event: the show. Iterative weapon customization and time-trials aren't distraction enough from the fact that Defiance - whilst great on paper - is fundamentally mediocre in execution, which is why it gets an even score."

Guy sounds like a upset pc head the way he bashes the game for doing the EXACT same missions as other pc mmo's.

as soon as he bashed the graphics I knew he was a pc head.
