Defiance

ablegamers.com
2 May 2013
  • Excerpt: There is something so special about Defiance that it transcends gaps in player skill. Defiance renders terms like “able-bodied” and “disabled” obsolete. Defiance allows players to be “just another player” as opposed to a player that might need something extra. Defiance doesn’t go above and beyond by doing this; the team at Trion Worlds responsible for Defiance didn’t do anything special by doing this, all they do is deliver the humanoid experience at its best.

Defiance Review: A world of trouble

PlayStation Universe
21 April 2013
  • Summary: The successes of Defiance are quickly overshadowed by its flaws. Trion Worlds promises that Defiance will continue to evolve and improve. I hope so: beneath the muck is a game that deserves better.
  • Pros: Solid gameplay, One of the only MMOs on PS3
  • Cons: Forgettable story and characters, Extremely repetitive, A lot of technical issues

Defiance is Borderlands: The MMO without the humor (review)

19 April 2013
  • Conclusion: To its credit, Trion Worlds is handling Defiance’s launch problems well. The company has kept players updated with a constant stream of blog posts on the official website, poking fun at itself along the way. It released a large patch to fix bugs and improve server and client stability. It’s also working to improve the game’s terrible voice chat. (Seriously, it’s bad. Use a third-party program like Skype to communicate with your buddies. You’ll thank me later.
  • Pros: Right now, Defiance is the closest thing we have to a Borderlands MMO. Its gameplay will feel instantly familiar to anyone who’s played Gearbox Software’s popular shooter on consoles or PC. It takes place in a not-so-distant postapocalyptic future where, after years of terraforming and war, enterprising souls called Ark Hunters scour the San Francisco area for valuable alien technology. As one of these hired guns, you’ll spend most of your time cruising the game world...
  • Cons: Defiance is a multiplatform game, and it’s clear some concessions were made while developing it for consoles, especially in the graphics department. PC players might feel like they got the short end of the stick when they see its lackluster textures and short draw distances obscured by fog. Facial animations are stiff; it’s as if everyone in the game was recently given a free Botox injection. On the plus side, it has some nice lens flare from time to time, and lower g...

Defiance review

GamesRadar
18 April 2013
  • Conclusion: "Defiance is a fun game to play, but there’s never really a good reason to play it." "Visually, this universe is realized with proficiency..." "In both PvE and PvP, the shooting mechanics are weighty and satisfying..." "It’s also worth noting Defiance’s death mechanic, which fails to elicit much from the player.
  • Pros: Tense shooting sequences with no shortage of enemies, Crazy-fun driving, An abundance of very accessible things to do
  • Cons: Endless fetch quests, Lack of rewards to keep you playing, Generic art style

Total Shtako | Defiance Review

17 April 2013
  • Conclusion: It remains to be seen whether or not the show will be successful. Early word from critics has not been exactly positive, which raises many questions. What happens to the game if the show is canceled? Will the Syfy Channel try and force the series to go on as long as possible? It’s not likely, since there’s so much money tied into this endeavor from so many places by so many entities.

Defiance

Playstation Only
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Defiance lijkt op het eerste gezicht een typische third-person shooter, maar er zit veel meer achter dan je misschien denkt. Dit project, dat al meer dan 100 miljoen heeft gekost en waar meer dan 100 ontwikkelaars vijf jaar aan hebben gewerkt, komt namelijk ook met een gelijknamige televisieserie. Het eerste seizoen, bestaande uit 12 episodes, zal wekelijks getoond worden op het Amerikaanse Syfy.
  • Pros: Goede vertaling van MMO naar console, Veel te doen..., Verhalende missies interessant genoeg
  • Cons: Weinig verschillende vijanden, ..maar de variatie is ver te zoeken, Ernstige bugs, Arkfalls missen de fun-factor

  • Excerpt: Defiance , almeno sulla carta, si presenta come un classico MMO, che differisce da molti altri esponenti del genere, per il fatto di essere approdato su console, contestualmente alla release su PC. Questo genere di gioco, infatti, è solito trovare terreno fertile solo su PC. Questa volta, però, gli sviluppatori hanno deciso per un rilascio in contemporanea anche su PS3 e Xbox 360.. Andiamo, anzitutto, a capire qual è la trama che circonda questo MMO.

  • Summary: Het idee van een game qua verhaal samensmelten met een real-life serie is echt heel tof. De gebeurtenissen in Defiance zullen met elkaar synchroon lopen en voor liefhebbers kan dit een heerlijke dubbelrol zijn. Echter, de uitwerking van Defiance is ietwat in de soep gelopen. Nergens overtuigt de MMO. Het schieten voelt niet krachtig, vijanden kunnen veel kogels hebben en missies zijn niet baanbrekend. Behalve de Arkfalls, waar je gigantische gevechten tegemoet gaat.
  • Pros: Arkfall-gevechten, Veel mogelijkheden
  • Cons: Technisch ondermaats, Grafisch ondermaats, Weinig gevoel in schieten, Sfeer
