A review of Defiance for Xbox 360 by an MMO noob ¦ TruTechNoid

This isn’t a 100% complete review as the sheer size of the game and massive amounts of missions would take an age to complete, so let me share my initial review of this ambitious third person MMO and maybe guide you in the right direction, but before I begin let me explain a few things, this is an online ONLY game and requires a minimum of 10GB free disk space to play. Defiance is directly linked with its namesake the upcoming SYFY TV series, so be sure to keep these things in mind before you buy to avoid any disappointment or confusion.... (Defiance, Xbox 360) 8/10

I know this isn't a complete review, but you wrote this and scored it based off 6 hours of play? It's an MMO, you've seen next to nothing.

And I stated all this in the review, so don't really see the point in your comment tbh

Point is, you shouldn't be applying a score to something you've barley played.

You shouldn't review a game that you haven't fully played. That's the bottom line.

What qualifies as fully playing an MMO then?? because if what you're saying is true then reviews for this game would probably take many months. This is an initial review (6-7 hours of mission gameplay) of the game intended to help other mmo beginners like myself.

Gotta go with deadpixel, can't really ever finish an MMO.

Damn fun game, I was very surprised.

Seeing as just above the score it says first impression score 8/10 I think the reviewer is valid, how else are you supposed to score an MMO really? When it is basically an ever evolving game. You would have to review the game every couple of Months.

Your bubble score says it all...

Already have the PVR set for the tv show see what its like first. I might go and rent the game first before I spend $60 on a game based off a tv show.

In the UK it's only around £30 which for an MMO that's got the potential to last is a very reasonable price and worth a shot :)

I've just bought it today and ploughed through it for a few hours and I do find it to be awesome....it can only get better in my opinion.

It's pretty good, especially for an mmo on a console... I've got about five hours in and I'm thoroughly enjoying it...

The review is good,explains things for people who have a interest in the game.Ime about 30 hours in and i would give it a 7 or 8 because of server problems at the start which seem to be a lot better over the weekend.The story missions are really good,which will only get better when the show starts.The weapons and mods work well together and there are loads of stuff to find.I found a gun today called an infecter ,when you fire it infects the ai with alien eggs which then attack and do damage to all around,so you get the picture with variety.There are tons of side missions to do and races.Shadow ops has 64 v64 online play which as far as i no is a record for consoles.The graphics are not as good as some games but the size of this one can not be matched for me.

This game is pretty dull, ninety percent of the time you are just holding right trigger and jumping around a bit.

It was fun at first but it's gotten old now and I'd like something more interesting to do.

Finally a decent review online all these sites giving this game a low score .In my eyes it gets nothing less than a 8.5 ..!!!! Great game alot of folks are sleeping on this title.
