MMGN: Defiance is a bland but still fun co-op shooter. Played with that in mind, the hours will whittle away thanks to a never-ending stream of quests and side missions until the terrible AI drives you away. MMO players are likely to be disappointed by its many shortcomings, but console gamers have little else on offer. As for its transmedia experiment with the TV show, Defiance is yet to really demonstrate how the two will collaborate, and therein lies the untapped potential. For now, Defiance is an enjoyable experience that’s underdeveloped at every turn.
