Defiance Review | GameCloud

Defiance is a transmedia experiment that promised players a massively multiplayer world that would co-exist in real time with a television counterpart of the same name. However, at the time of writing this review there have been two episodes aired and a major patch release, and so far the game has failed to deliver on this premise. If anything, the experience is only being hurt by its connection with the show, but it’s still early days, and there still lies the potential for this promise to be fulfilled. The game itself has a rugged charm that can be addictive at times, but it’s also full of technical problems. Unfortunately, the console versions have a lot more issues, so if you want the best experience possible, we recommend you play on PC. In time, it’s possible the game could grow to become a competitive place holder in the genre, but it’s not likely the potential of transmedia will be realised with Defiance. (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 6/10

This game deserves much better. It's so much fun and just gets better the more you play it. And after the last patch almost all the console bugs are gone. Which speaks volumes for an MMO.

I agree, all except for the "truck trolls", those fuckers who've figured out that if they circle the arkfalls in vehicles running down the hellbugs before they can weaken the crystal they can run down the timer and cause everyone to fail the mission. I can't see any way to fix this short of excluding vehicles from the arkfall zones.
