Defiance Review | The Game Scouts

Jeff Ellis: When I was asked to play through Trion Worlds’s MMORPG...TPS, Defiance, I was admittedly skeptical. The game was developed side-by-side with a SyFy original series of the same name. I have never been a fan of the misspelled channel or anything that it has put out and am not afraid to admit that I went into my playthrough of Defiance with a negative bias and a desire to scoff at everything the game did wrong. Perhaps not so surprisingly for some of you, the game is actually loads of fun and forced me to swallow my sci-fi elitism more times than I care to admit.

The gameplay and value should be higher in my opinion,ime a massive fan of this game and its funny how positive reviews are now finding there way through now people have spent a bit more time with the game.I agree with the sound they could of worked a bit harder on that one.I do believe trion are listening to gamers as problems are being sorted things will improve all the time.

I love this game too. It's a great game, that only wants to be a fun game not some moral lesson.

It's great how whenever someone writes a review for this game, people who actually play it for more than 10 hours step in and say how good the game is to play.

With that said, I love game and it's definitely a 8 or 9 to me.

I'm at EGO level 500 and I'd give it a solid 9/10 as well. Very close to a 10 actually.

Lol yeah. I actually have to resist the urge to comment on most of these. I don't want to be seen as someone who is desperately trying to convince people.

Question, if I may, for you people who actually likes it: do you guys like it for pvp or coop pve? I only ask cause the thing I like the most is pve, and I've read a lot of complaints from reviers about pve getting really boring really fast due to the lack in variation.
Pve is the whole selling point for me, so, is it good from that aspect?

Heisenburger1805d ago

I absolutely purchased this game for co-op pve. I haven't even gotten around to trying competitive.

Idk. Almost every game is repetitive technically. If you have a friend(with a headset) to roll with and what you've seen looks good, then go for it.

I really don't understand all of these reviewers who have been playing an MMO by themselves.

Though actually I quite enjoy playing solo. But co-op is where it's at though.

InMyOpinion1805d ago

I've only tried PVP once, so definitely PVE.

The story missions can get kind of repetitive in the beginning, but there are so many other things to do once you unlock some 4-player co-op maps etc. Sometimes I just roam around freely and jump in to help people with ongoing missions.

Then there's side missions, races, contracts, goals, rampages, hotshot challenges and tons of other stuff to be done.

The short answer - I've only played PVE (for around 40 hours or so) and I'm far from bored yet. :)

cleft51805d ago

I love the pve stuff. People are getting bored because they play the game like crazy doing the main quest, which isn't short, in days.

I find this game to be very chill and full to mess around in pve wise. Than you can easily switch over to co-op 4 players raids, regardless of whether or not you have people with you. Or you can jump into some massive pvp. All of that at the touch of a button.

To add to this, there is a massive amount of side quests and challenges to do. I love this game and best of all, no monthly fee.

I bought it for PvE and I love it. Main missions, episode missions, side missions, rampages, hot shots, time trials, random events... There's so much to do with PvE I've barely spent any time with PvP so far.
