Review: Defiance | Xboxer360

Jamie of Xboxer360 writes, "Not many TV show tied-in games have achieved great success, in fact you could say the only game to do so was Telltale’s The Walking Dead, whereas Survival Instinct showed us exactly how not to make a TV tied-in title. Well now it’s Defiance’s turn to show what it’s got, with the TV series set to premiere on Monday 15th April on the Syfy channel.

Set in the San Francisco Bay area, the world does not appear as we know it, with a terraformed environment and alien inhabitants known as Voltans, now sharing Earth with the human race. Defiance is an open-world third-person shooter MMO, a lot to say I know, but that’s exactly what it is. You are an Ark Hunter, not a Vault Hunter although there are a lot of similarities to Borderlands. Employed by the famous Karl Von Bach (CEO of Von Bach Industries), it’s your job to search for advanced and expensive alien technology." (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 74/100
