Defiance Review | Gaming Trend

Gaming Trend: "Check out the show, by all means – it looks like a refreshing, shoot-‘em-up romp through the distant future – but at the end of the day, I defy you to play this thing and enjoy it for more than fifteen minutes." (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 67/100

Might not be the best game in the world. But, but more fun once you get into it. There's more variety of weapons as you go on. At first you only see a few types of weapons, but as you level up you find a lot more variety. I've seen about 5 kinds of grenades (standard one, one that fragments, one that burns that area for several seconds, a snare, and a flash-bang so far), and several types of missile launchers (standard / homing missile, one that fragments upon impact, one that sticks to the target and explodes a few seconds later, and one that you can fire into the air and fragment it to rain down grenades when you hit reload), just to name a few. Hell, even found a double barrel shot gun that fires sticky exploding rounds.

On the PS3, I've only had 1 patch. Also, does no MMO ever have any patches? Guild Wars 2 releases minor updates at least once a week to fix any bugs or for maintenance, and WoW has patches every so often as well. Patches to fix bugs are always nice. The only problem I've love fixed that'd bump the game from a C+ to a B tor me would be DCing issues (and not from my connection as I've never DCed from the PSN and my comp/phone/roommates comp has yet to DC at all when I've had problems). Though still not as bad as trying to play Diablo 3 when it came out and lagging /dcing in single player repeatedly.

As for lack of people, the starting area after a bit tends to be dead for a reason. Everyone is out exploring the rest of the place, doing group events, etc. I always see a ton of people around arkfalls and it doesn't take long at all to get into a co-op match.

p.s. What MMO / online open world game has shown you every type of enemy, every variety of weaponry, etc in the first 20 min (the time it took the reviewer to stop playing, which is pretty much the intro to the game and maybe first few missions)? I know Guild Wars 2 starts you off pretty much with your races evil faction and the surrounding indigenous enemies (Flame legion, ghosts of ascalon, grawl etc for Charr). Unless you're Sylvari, you don't really see any undead till much later.

If they iron out the bugs, it'll be worth the $60 for a non subscription mmo.
