Summary: Great show. Horrible game. It takes up an insane amount of space on your hard drive, and you can only play online. There's no way to pause the game if you have to take a quick break. Watch the show and enjoy it, but don't waste money on this game.
Needs internet connection to work....unfortunately

Summary: I actually have not gotten a chance to play this game yet, because it does require an internet connection (I didn't realise it would), which I do not currently have right now....guess I should have read more about it before I bought it, but luckily I got it cheap, so I'll hold onto it until I can play it. It does look fun, I have seen gameplay footage on Youtube, and I do enjoy the TV series. If it had offline gameplay capability, I'm sure I would give it 5 stars.
"Watch the TV Show. Play the Game." The ultimate way to keep me immersed by this MMO exprerience.

Summary: What [else] can I say about Defiance? This game is a killer. This is my first time playing a game that is more of a multiplayer game than a stand-alone player type entirely. I like how this game connects itself gratefully to the series in terms of its tone, themes, and visuals. It was great timing for the game to come out around the same time the series did during its first run on SyFy last year but I didn't really get the game until its currently running second season...
Summary: I wasn't expecting to have fun but I did. A lot of graphical bugs and weird stuff that happend. Massive update in the beginning somehow I got thru it took all night and day to finish but my internets not so fast a good trick I found was to power cycle your modem. It restarts it or somthing sorry not a tech guy but that cut wait time in half. Unsurprisingly nobody uses their Mic or atleast nobody knows how to actavate their chat function. Area chat is mute by default.
