Excerpt: "TV and movie tie-ins tend to be pretty abysmal. There are exceptions, but often times tie-ins end up in the category of “shovelware”. In more cases than not, we find that these titles feel rushed. They lack the polish in almost every area of development. In general you get the sense the product team isn’t trying to make a great game, but simply trying to sell something on namesake. fortunately, Defiance is a deviation from the norm."
