Defiance Review

Game Over Online
21 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Fans of Massively Multiplayer Online games, or MMOs, have had slim pickings on consoles since, well, always. It’s unfortunate, because there’s a massive audience that only plays games on their consoles, so a lot of gamers are missing out on the unique gaming experience that only MMOs can deliver.

Defiance (Xbox 360) Review

18 May 2013
  • Summary: Overall, is a good foundation for a console MMO. It’s a decent experience, but doesn’t break the mold in any new ways and actually doesn’t capture the full charm a PC MMO has. That being said, it is enjoyable to run around with a friend in to see the war-torn world of San Francisco.

  • Summary: In today's gaming industry, risks aren't taken nearly as often in comparison to past generations. Today's generation focuses primarily on the status quo. In most cases, developers use a standard formula that, while it may not produce the best game, or the worst game, the result generally means a...

  • Excerpt: Defiance is easily the most ambitious title of this generation of gaming. A video game that would tie-in with a brand new SyFy series while offering an online world where hundreds of players could play together and even team up for massive 64-player matches sounds too good to be true, but that's...

  • Excerpt: Hard to believe it’s been seven years since the debut of Final Fantasy XI , the 360’s first — and last — massively multiplayer game. The genre’s finally returned with Defiance , a persistent online shooter with some interesting and innovative concepts, plus no subscription costs in sight.
  • Pros: + Arkfalls and the overall persistent nature of the game are great.
  • Cons: ? Will the game live up to its potential in another year’s time?

  • Summary: Defiance is a difficult game to wrap your head around. That's not because it's all that complicated, but rather because it's just so much fun, even though none of the elements are done particularly well.
  • Pros: Exciting arkfalls capture the sense of a population fighting for riches, The lure of interesting new weapons is irresistible, Well-paced co-op missions, Great scaling and progression have you exploring the world early on
  • Cons: Depressing array of bugs intrude on almost every aspect of play, The shooting lacks a sense of power, Wonderless world and story, Jumpy frame rates, Unbalanced difficulty in story missions

  • Excerpt: In the initial impressions bit a few weeks ago, I said Defiance, for all its jank, had something. It had problems, too, but the game has grown on me during the weeks I've been playing it.

  • Summary: With the TV show kicking off this week, we’ll be able to see just how tied-in the two mediums are, and how much extra clout the series will afford the MMO. Potentially, it’s a risky venture but, let’s be honest, most people who bought the game will be tuning in to at least the pilot.
