After installing the game overnight, I started in a world where random people seemed to be walking around and doing things near me, but not with me. In a future world invaded by aliens you have to help different factions to fight the aliens and improve your skill set. The game has RPG elements, but also acts as a shooter. You are able to select the type of character you play; I went for a stealth character that could shoot from far away. Different characters work well as you can band with other players to tackle a situation using the unique skills everyone has. However, I found the community happier to hang out by themselves, thus leaving me alone most of the time.
What you get then is a large set of maps with not a lot to do, but grind along with fetch quests. I have not got my head around the massive online game yet and ‘Defiance’ does little to dispel my displeasure with the genre. I prefer structure and quality to my games, rather than endless possibilities I won’t bother to discover. To make matters worse, after installing the game for several hours a new patch arrived a few days later demanding another 5GBs. I don’t have superfast broadband so this would have been another odyssey of installing. Instead I removed the game from my hard drive, never to play again.
Over all it's good at what it does, the graphics are good but not great, and when it gets really busy in a area it tends to lag quite a bit. Defiance is not going to win game of the year but its not going to win worst either, it's not as addictive as other games due to the repetitiveness of the missions and games play.
I'm not a PC gamer. I have not played WOW or anything even remotely like it. For many good years I have co-existed with consoles and I intend to keep going that way until the day I can no longer play games.
Obviously, as some of you may fathom out, I have not completed Defiance. In-fact there are a million things I have still to do in the game. I thought I'd review my experience so far and hopefully it may help you decide if you like it.
The game will demand that you install it. Then the game will apply patches, as is normal on day one. This can take a while....well up to 30 minutes. Just be prepared and have at least 10GB hard-disk space available.
So, jumping into the game, we get a cut-scene and then it's off to the good old character creation screen. Options are moderate and there is a fine-tuning system for getting the face of your character to a level you are happy with. It will ask you for a character name: So long as no other player has picked the same name (kind of like the XBOX profile system) you can call your guy/gal whatever you want. I simply opted to use my Xbox name for easiness.
You pick a class which basically amounts to what weapons and outfit you begin the game with. All weapons in the game are accessible, so no class restrictions. The more you use a weapon = the more proficient you become in it's use.
When you first drop into the game a number of things are going to strike you, making you instantly aware of them.
Graphics. While not perfect they are standard, perhaps a little rugged here and there. Now this is forgivable given the scope of the game.Read more ›
The bit that qualifies it as an MMO (ie, the existence of other players in your world) is the most fundamentally flawed aspect of this game as all the enemies sync to the highest level player in the vicinity so you end up being massively under-levelled most of the time. I call it a pseudo-MMO at the top because it's not one persistent world inhabited by the same players but an instanced world that attempts to matchmake you. As such, you can't pick a server to play on regularly where a large community of players you come to recognise inhabits because it's ever-changing (and worse for it).
To fund the free-to-play model the game has also introduced micro transactions which, while understandably necessary, ruins ALL MMOs because the game loses balance and rewards those willing to pay the most - small monthly subs make for much better games, just ask anyone who's played FFXI, FFXIV or WoW - the real AAAs in this genre and leagues above whatever this was trying to be.
Other issues include - combat always feels exactly the same, it's both the worst shooter and worst MMO I've ever played, the world is WAY too small, every quest is basically the same and progression feels neither meaningful or rewarding.
You should avoid this game at all costs, it's terrible. Ultimately, you get what you pay for and here you'll get something better off on Facebook supported by ads.

This has to be the worst game I have ever played. It's so bad that you can now download it free from Xbox Live, which is a desperate attempt to attract more players. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Simon Reynolds
Knocked together by the makers of Rift to tie in to a sub-par sci-fi series. It's basically Rift with guns, little progression or story, little to keep you interested.Published 10 months ago by Andy Holmes
