Review: Defiance (This Is My Joystick)

In a nutshell, you are an Ark Hunter looking for fame and fortune. Ark Hunters are folk who clamour over the treasure contained in Arkfalls, giant pieces of a destroyed alien mothership that regularly make planetfall and spawn spectacular and terrifying beasties. You quickly meet a chipper Irathient (read: sort of Klingon) girl called Cass who introduces you to the world and the Von Bach corporation; both your company paymasters and your reason for being there.

It quickly becomes clear that although the plot is intriguing, it is muddied by the limitations of an MMO framework. It’s tough to strike the right balance between personal journey and universal goal and Trion Worlds don’t seem to have managed it. T (Defiance, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) -
