Defiance Review (

Thanks to bad server problems and a lack of genuine gameplay and presentation, Defiance feels more like an MM-no than an MMO. (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 4.5/10

Stopped reading at MM-no.

This game is the perfect co-op game for me and my roommate.

4 is a bit low; a 6 sounds about right as it is merely an above-average game at the moment that, due to it being able to have massive updates because of it being an MMO, can eventually be raised to a 7 or 8 if the right moves are done.

Seems a bit harsh. We've went for a more MMO friendly way to review...well MMOs

Im startin to wonder should I even rent this game or should I just use that reserved GF slot for the new dead Island game. I know one thing If it starts to average a 5.9 I'm removing from the list.

Don't listen to these reviews. The game is a ton of fun. Sure, it doesn't have the best graphics around and the weapons aren't as in depth as I'd like, but overall it's a VERY fun game. Seeing how there's no subscription, I'd suggest renting it. You just might be surprised. There's a ton of content to be had here.

Alas, I too hoped their servers were up to par with more seasoned MMO.

It's barely past the first week. With that said the servers where more stable than Sim City and I can assure you that EA put a hell of a lot more money behind that game than the Defiance people had.

I played the beta and it looked very promising. I'm disappointed it fell short of expectations but these online games can be tough for developers to manage as it's hard to anticipate volume and unforeseen issues once it gets to the masses. I'm sure it will get better with the TV Series tied to it.

Very harsh review...are you sure you played it right. I am hooked on it as well as thousands of other gamers. It has a few kinks to work out, but is getting better every day. They even awarded loyal gamers with extras...I guess you did not get anything...LOL

This game is a 9

This game is pure fun, yet it keeps getting these low scores because apparently the game needs to have some sort of deep emotional connection for people to enjoy it.

I can tell you all this, I look forward to playing this game everyday and I enjoy my time playing the game. It's simple and fun.
