Defiance Review | Hardcore Gamer

Hardcore Gamer: A lot is riding on Defiance. For starters, it’s the first video game to partner with a television series to deliver a seamless, interconnecting experience in which what happens in the game world impacts the TV show, and vice-versa. This is a big deal for gaming in a broad sense, as not only does it have a chance to legitimize our form of entertainment as a viable kind of storytelling media, but also demonstrates the nigh limitless possibilities of fan interaction when it comes to being a part of their favorite make-believe world. Outside of this joint venture with television giant SyFy, though, this is also developer Trion’s third game to date. (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 3.5/5

Been playing this a little bit and it's just right there, a few more pushes and it could be something great.

Needs work to get it over the top! If it was an Alpha I would be impressed but it's a dam $60 game and luckily I'm playing someone else's wasted cash.

It all depends on Dev support and if they got plans to push Defience further along than what it already is cause the potential is there.

One major concern, it's a multiplat so I doubt any support will be given.

They already stated that there's a patch coming on april 15th and another one two weeks later (for console).

I will buy it tonight to play with a friend.

I give it a 9

You give it a 9?

Please PM me back why you think it's a 9

I give it a 6 but like I said if the content and support is there than yeh I can see a 9. I guess I compared it too much to Firefall which i would give a 9 but not Defiance.

I give it a 9 as well. I dont like playing MMO's on my pc, although I love Firefall. For a console MMO it really is a fun, addictive game. Good graphics, minimal lag, and the arkfall events are fun as hell.

I would give it a 8 as it has already eaten many hours of my life,but it does get a bit of lag now and again on the ark fall scenarios on xbox,if they keep making adjustments it might turn out to be one of my favourite games of the year.The graphics are ok for the size of it dont forget this is a first for consoles and its very addictive and fun to play.
