Defiance Review [Capsule Computers]

Editor Joe Morgan writes,

"Defiance. It’s rare that such an ambitious project comes along. No, this isn’t a game based on the 2008 historical drama starring Daniel Craig. Defiance was designed as a third-person shooter MMO. Even more impressive is its union with the Syfy channel’s upcoming show of the same name that aims to unite two completely separate forms of media – television and video games. How well does Defiance hold up? Should you join the fight or rise up against it? Let’s find out." (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 7.5/10

Not bad, I think I might give this a chance. Its an interesting concept that seems executed well enough

Yeah, I had my doubts about this when I first heard about it. Certainly seems better than I had feared.

The game is really good. Ya 7.5 to an 8 is prob what I'd give it. If u u factor in everything, graphics , sound ect... But just in terms of fun and value it's excellent.
Myst  +   920d ago
Yep I figured this would be where the scores would fall. Still fun can even be quite addictive actually.

Exactly what i've been saying all along if you can forgive the not so great graphics. The game is a blast playing on your own and an even bigger blast with your buddy's oh yeah and the major arch falls are mental in a good way.

The ark falls are CRAZY! 200 people on ATVs rush to an area to take out this HUGE monster!? Love it!

I dont agree i give it a 9/10
militissanctus  +   920d ago
Hey, it's definitely a TON of fun. I agree with the reviewer, though - there are a few things missing right now.
VeritasJoe  +   920d ago
9/10? Wow, it's that good? I'm excited for the TV show too!

Everyone has their own scoring system for personal reviews, but I'd definitely score Defiance higher than 7.5. I guess it would depend on what system you play it on, because the 360 has the worst problems so far, while PS3's version is in the best shape. PC is in the middle. I say that based on what I've been reading in the official forums, posted by players and Trion themselves. I'm playing on PS3 and I love it, though I have run into some bugs here and there. The fun factor is through the roof in my opinion, and more than makes up for any problems I've had. I'd say 9 is not out of the question at all. I love the Ark Falls. Seeing multiple players get knocked into the air by a Hellbug Monarch makes me smile every time, even when it happens to me. I think over time the game will improve a lot, performance wise, but it's already one of my favorite gaming experiences this generation. I almost never buy Season Passes but I'm fairly certain I'll be getting this one.

I love the game but considering the rating criteria I'd give it an 8
A LIVING LEGEND  +   920d ago
I'm divided so far,it's like Borderlands meets DC online.
VeritasJoe  +   920d ago
It seems very Borderlands-ish from what I can tell - probably not so much of the crazy people though.
coaidant  +   920d ago
Errr so is it any good?
VeritasJoe  +   920d ago
I think a 7/10 on most scales is considered "Good", so I would have to guess and say "Yessir"
UntamedGunner  +   919d ago
Amazing game I'm loving every second great controls fun game play soooo addictive all the things an mmo should be
UntamedGunner  +   919d ago
I give Defiance 9.8 ya so a couple of B.S. problems but it's a new mmo that just launched GW2 WOW SWTOR tell me they launched as smooth glass but this is my opinion I love it so take it for what it's worth ( not much ) maybe but we sll have the right to our opinions
