Defiance Review | Nerdluster

Nerdluster writes:
Is there anything seriously wrong? Yes. There's lots of graphical and environmental bugs in the game. My character would get stuck in odd animated positions and then float around endlessly. Sometimes I'd just get plain stuck with no way out other than quitting the game and restarting. The hud is also very cluttered and often restricts the view of the environment. Only when the action breaks for a cinematic animation do we really get to look at the amazing world.

It's great that Defiance is free to play and its story continues to get better as I go along. I'm grateful also to be aiming and shooting instead of clicking a set of keyboard keys over and over again in a predefined pattern. It's fun to play Trion Worlds' interconnected game but I'd wish the two universes (television and video game) were more reactive to the events that take place in their counterparts. Even the illusion of such a dynamic would suffice. It's beautiful and well acted but gameplay bugs and homogenous classes really drag the enjoyment down.

kinda wondering bout this game. I'm kinda getting into the show, feel like I'm missing out on the FULL Defiance experience

I'm in the same boat. I own too much crap now (PC games and MMOs) to go ahead!

If you have a solid PC, and it sounds like you do, you can find a deal on Defiance for like $40 from Green Man Gaming. Apparently there are a bunch of coupons out there too, so you could end up getting the game half off. The game is pure fun and completely worth playing.

The game is really fun. The game is simple in many ways and the graphics are decent, but the game itself is pure fun. Honestly, the only reason I watch the show is because I love the game.

Don't let this poor reviews fool you, the game is pure fun. It's not Bioshock infinite or anything, but it's not trying to be either.

Defiance is a great game, I'm playing it on 360 and it all works fine, these reviews are misleading, the game has been patched twice in the last two weeks and it's solid as a rock.
Defiance is an MMORPG it's not an open world shooter like Red Dead Redemption or Saints Row, it's an evolving game.

Mutant is right this game is being improved every week! Its highly enjoyable, think Borderlands in 3rd person just waaaayyyyy better! I would say 87/100 is a better score. Game is awesome especially when you get to an Arkfall and theres 65 other people blasting the crystal. Story is good too!

It's not free to play. It is fun. That is all
