Defiance

ActionTrip
4 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Even with the lack of documentation that tended to frustrate me to the point of logging out of the game, the fast gun play and loot drops keep bringing me back in. The missions that tie into plot lines of the TV show are interesting and have made me consider watching a few episodes (though I have not done so yet).
  • Pros: Fast sci-fi gunplay in a massive online setting, free online play, lots of loot drops, lots of missions and challenges in game;
  • Cons: Lack of documentation makes parts of the game a mystery forcing players to search out details online, clunky facial animations, annoying bug sometimes forces missions to be dropped and rerun to be completed.

  • Summary: Not exactly the cross-media revolution that was promised, but there's a decent (if flawed) third-person shooter inside this light MMO structure.

  • Conclusion: A serviceable third person shooter with MMO elements, but not ready for prime time yet.

  • Excerpt: It may not seem like it, but Defiance - the new MMO/action game from Trion Worlds (most famous for Rift and End of Nations) was one of 2013's most intriguing titles. The game made a lot of lofty promises - Defiance would finally bring a worthwhile MMO to consoles, and perhaps more importantly, it would create a complete immersive world in conjunction with the new Sci-Fi Channel series of the same name. They failed.

Review: Defiance is an ambitious MMO, that was clearly designed for consoles

GameZone
20 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Defiance is an ambitious experiment, a crazy cross-media promotion that brings together a television series and a massively multiplayer video game. Still, regardless of the two mediums sharing the same timeline, they are, for the most part, separate experiences. So what can Defiance bring to the MMO table that will entice those looking to trade in their broadswords and plate mail for high tech ATVs and electric pulse rifles?

Defiance (PC)

  • Conclusion: I will start off by saying I enjoyed Defiance very much. The seemingly infinite amount of random loot and fast paced bullet slinging action had me hooked from the jump (the rocket-powered ATV that acts as your mount helped with that) and the near endless customization kept me playing well into the night. Picking up a dungeon group and simply laying into mobs for 15 minutes or running across a zone to join in on an ArkFall is addicting in that way all MMO players love.

  • Excerpt: What Defiance does well, it does well enough. This is basically a wide open playground dotted with activities, almost of all which come down to shooting a bunch of dudes, and sometimes pressing a button once you’ve shot them. But lots of shooting. Gratifying shooting with as many different guns as you like. Light machineguns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, shotguns (three flavors!

Defiance review

  • Excerpt: Around a dozen hours into my time with Defiance, I realised that I was having fun. Not the kind of fun that warrants an unreserved recommendation, but I had acclimated to the vagaries of Trion’s sci-fi MMO shooter in such a way that I was getting something out of it. My early impressions, however, were not good. When I started playing, I scooted around on a quadbike and blasted mutants and noticed all of the game’s faults.
