Defiance: A MMORPG to Try or Avoid?

My Review of Trion World's newest video game Defiance. Is it worth a look at or should you avoid it? (PC, PS3, Trion Worlds, Xbox 360) 6.5/10

Couldnt of said it better myself

No, its extreamly boring, repetitive and just generally bad.

On the bright side, the game is better than the show. lol
Baka-akaB  +   947d ago
I think just the opposite , a so far decent start for a sci fi show (but can it even survive more than 2 seasons with the way syfy is currently run ?) for a forgettable game
MysticStrummer  +   946d ago
I agree that the game is better than the show, though I like the show enough to keep watching and see how it goes.

I like the game a lot. It's something I'll play at least every once in awhile for a long time. My main issues with it are technical, but PS3 had the smoothest launch of all the platforms and I've seen improvements since then as well.
Soldierone  +   946d ago
Thats how I feel about the game, the issue I have is that its online based. So in order to "keep playing once in a while" the community needs to last.

I don't think the community will last too long to be honest. Terrible reviews are hurting it, and the hate train already wizzed through. The rest of the people will just get tired and move to the next game sooner or later.
MysticStrummer  +   946d ago
The hate train did indeed wizz through, but looking at the forums there seem to be quite a few people who like the game as well. Most of the hate seems to be about the technical problems, which are getting at least a little better, than about the kind of game it is.

As for people moving on to the next game, that's always a possibility, but people were playing Everquest Online Adventures and SOCOM on their PS2s well into the PS3 life cycle. There will be some sort of community as long as the servers are up, and if they get the technical problems worked out fairly quickly, they can start adding things. They say they won't spilt the player base, so new areas and enemies will be available for all. Since there's no subscription fee, that may keep players around and eventually bring in new ones. We'll see.

Omg stupid score i give it a 9 been waiting for a online mmo shooter
Baka-akaB  +   947d ago
Not to debate your taste , but this was hardly the first online mmo shooter .
THESHAUNZY  +   947d ago
you will have to wait a little longer for great one.

Not a good game, there are free to play games on pc that put it to shame. Maybe bungies mmo like game won't suck, but until then consoles just aren't the place for mmos. Yes I know it's on pc, but its catered towards the lowest common denominator.
Baka-akaB  +   947d ago
there have been a few and great enough mmos on consoles . Some of those even innovated for the genre as a whole .

That's not the issue , the quality of this particular game might be .

Another MMO failure that will be forgotten.
Faztkiller  +   947d ago
i enjoy the game arkfalls are a blast
RobAlmighty  +   947d ago
I bought it for 360 and then returned it the minute I finished the first PVP match. Absolutely terrible.
MysticStrummer  +   946d ago
Since Trion said for months before release that Defiance was a MMOTPS, not an MMORPG, I won't even glance at the contents of this review.

Defiance is a MMOTPS with some RPG elements, but it's mostly a shooter.

I think it's pretty damn cool with loads of potential still to be realized.
landog  +   946d ago
I'll try it in two months when its free to play...

it seems like most mmos, fun if you have a few friends to try it with, but probably loses its appleal quickly

very few mmo's are really good

guild wars 2 is so awesome though, and neverwinter online is freaking epic, tera is awesome, as is rift....i got plenty of mmos.....this game can wait as i far as im concerned...

when its free though, hey, why not
