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

Total Xbox
18 April 2013
  • 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?

Defiance Review

Xbox 360 achievements
10 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Defiance is a mixture of one genre that is amazingly popular on consoles and one that isn’t, but perhaps should be. But the marriage is one that never quite seems to work as the shooting aspects feel far too underwhelming while the questing and side missions are too bland to keep you hooked.

Defiance Review

Hardcore Shooter
9 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Rift’s developer Trion has a decent second outing here with their TV tie-in. If only it had been released as an open world instead of an MMO.
  • Pros: Having access to a fully developed TV show lore bible has its perks, Gameplay is not bad at all
  • Cons: Good luck getting past the server queues, patches, and other MMO gatekeepers, Frequent disconnects, lag, and bugs, oh my

Defiance

Strategy Informer
23 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Defiance is an underwhelming MMO at best, but it does have one or two moments of distinction. The TV and videogame tie-ins largely fall short of the mark, and there are better online shooters out there to choose from.

Defiance (Xbox 360) Review

Canadian Online Gamers
28 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Defiance officially launched last week and as seems to be the way with most online game releases, it’s been unstable and difficult to get a solid play session in with the shaky servers being a problem area.

Defiance

18 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Defiance on varsin merkillinen ilmestys pelien rintamalla. Se on uuteen scifiteemaiseen TV-sarjaan perustuva lisenssipeli, joka ei – vastoin kaikkia odotuksia – ole pelkkä yksinkertainen toimintapeli, joka mukailee sarjan juonta lähes orjallisesti.
  • Pros: + Pelaajia riittää servereillä jo nyt paljon, + Pelaaminen on mahdollista yksin tai kimpassa, + Räiskiminen satapäisellä ryhmällä kerrassaan siistiä, + Idealtaan mielenkiintoinen ja laaja pelimaailma, jossa paljon puuhasteltavaa.., + Huikea pelaajamäärä! (ainakin teoriassa)
  • Cons: - ..Mutta mistä melkein kaikki on tavalla tai toisella pelkkää räiskimistä, - Audiovisuaalinen suoritus varsin keskinkertaista luokkaa, - Hahmonluontieditori ei tarjoa riittävästi monipuolisuutta, - Valikot kaipaavat hiomista ja selkeyttämistä, - Vihollistekoäly paikoin olematonta sorttia, - Peli...

Defiance

Gamereactor
23 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Den som føler seg bevandret innenfor TV-serier, har kanskje lagt merke til en serie som har sin første sesong i USA nÃ¥ - nemlig Defiance . Spillet er knyttet opp mot TV-serien, som i et forsøk pÃ¥ Ã¥ levere en franchise pÃ¥ flere plattformer.
  • Pros: Higet etter stadig bedre utstyr, gøy nÃ¥r det er pÃ¥ sitt beste, leken kontroll.
  • Cons: Stygg grafikk, mange bugs, kjedelig fortalt historie, sci-fi klisjéer, lite variasjon i spillmekanikkene.

Defiance review

Power Unlimited
20 April 2013
  • Summary: Er zijn zoveel fantastische shooters met goed uitgewerkte multiplayer modes, en ook het MMO genre kent genoeg concurrentie. Wat maakt Defiance beter dan de rest, het ambitieuze businessplan terzijde? Ik weet het na mijn speelsessies nog steeds niet.

18 April 2013
  • Summary: Nach Phantasy Star Universe und Final Fantasy XI ist die Liste an echten MMO's auf der Xbox 360 verdammt kurz. Wenn man sieht, wie die Konsole mit Defiance im Laufwerk teilweise ächzt und krächzt, dann weiß man aber auch warum.
  • Pros: interessantes Setting mit viel Potential..., riesige offene Spielwelt, unterhaltsame Storymissionen, jede Menge Nebenaufgaben..., Fahrzeug jederzeit und überall verfügbar, Charakter durch Perks und freie Waffenwahl ziemlich offen gestaltbar, Waffen und Ausrüstung modifizierbar, gute Menüführung, ...
  • Cons: ...das aber an vielen Stellen verschenkt wurde, unspektakuläre Spezialfähigkeiten, schwache Lokalisation, ...die nach dem selben langweiligen Schema ablaufen, minimalistischen Gesichtsanimationen in Zwischensequenzen, technisch ziemlich altbacken, kein Deckungssystem, teilweise sehr schwache KI, ...
