Defiance

Thunderbolt Games
1 May 2013
  • Excerpt: On paper, Defiance is a peculiar game. An MMO on consoles; one that favours lead and burning rubber over swords and sorcery, third-person shooting over strategic role-playing. Set against the backdrop of a SyFy TV show of the same name – a collaboration that hopes to engross you in more mediums than one. On the screen, however, familiarity lies at the heart of the experience, with a sprinkling of ambition tying it all together.

  • 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. Massively multiplayer novelty aside, what really matters is whether this expansive experience warrants the considerable time and energy needed to tap its promised riches.
  • 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?

  • 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. With weapons just being very slight variations on each other you never feel obliged to forage for loot, so the gloss soon comes off.

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

  • 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. A curiosity in terms of media convergence, but it rarely troubles the definition of 'groundbreaking'. Average from start to finish.

Defiance (Xbox 360) Review

canadianonlinegamers.com
15 April 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. As the launch date passed, and some time went by, Defiance’s servers have became smoother and I have finally been able to give it more playtime resulting in what I think is a fair review.

Defiance Edition Limitée

4 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Sortir quasi-simultanément un MMO et une série de SF basés sur le même univers peut sembler osé. Ça ne semble pas refroidir Trion Worlds, les développeurs à qui l’on doit Rift. Dans la jungle des MMO, difficile de se faire une place au soleil. Mondes médiévaux, contemporains ou futuristes. Sorcier, super-héros et chevalier Jedi. Les joueurs ont l’embarras du choix.

  • Excerpt: <p> Es klingt wie eines dieser typischen Werbeversprechen, die gerne vor der Ver&ouml;ffentlichung eines neuen Spiels verbreitet werden: Defiance wird etwas komplett neues bieten, was kein Spiel vorher jemals getan hat.

Defiance

gamereality.org
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. Sen sijaan Defiance on MMORPG-genreen perustuva massiivimoninpeli ja peli julkaistiin viime kuun lopulla, jo noin kaksi viikkoa ennen kuin kyseinen TV-scifi ehti alkaa edes Yhdysvalloissa!
  • 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, - Pelirahan kertyminen hidasta mikrotransaktioiden vuoksi

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 nå - nemlig Defiance . Spillet er knyttet opp mot TV-serien, som i et forsøk på å levere en franchise på flere plattformer. Et konsept som egentlig er et minefelt med tanke på alle de sjelløse spillmatiseringene av Hollywood-filmer som med jevne mellomrom dukker opp og forpester spillkulturen med dårlig underholdning.
  • Pros: Higet etter stadig bedre utstyr, gøy når det er på sitt beste, leken kontroll.
  • Cons: Stygg grafikk, mange bugs, kjedelig fortalt historie, sci-fi klisjéer, lite variasjon i spillmekanikkene.
