I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about this game. I've noticed that they are all reviews on either the beta or the console version. I chose to ignore the negative reviews and purchase the game for pc and wow. It is so much better than the reviews from others stated. Like i said though, those were reviews on the beta and console versions. The graphics on pc are great for an mmo. If you have the hardware it looks amazing, the lighting effects and shadows are very well done, the character models look nice and the textures are well refined. A few glitches here and there. The gameplay is great, i was hooked right away, the story is pretty well written, not amazing but better than Star Wars: The Old Republic. The game plays like guild wars 2 meets borderlands. The leveling system is different but not in a bad way and so far the community of players is very good. You don't deal with others at all unless you want to and during Arkfall events it gets pretty intense and its great fighting alongside 30 or 40 others. Overall a well developed game with a few bugs that i'm sure will be ironed out soon. Actually, after i installed the game it had a 10gb patch that took over 5 hours to download (due to server overload at the time). I have had no issues with connection or lag in game. If you like mmo's or even a third-person shooter with a nice story and cool customization options, this game is for you.
Defiance PC Beta
I Played The PC Beta Of Defiance And Its Really Fun. Already Preordered For Xbox 360. Has a great story too.
This game is a role model for other games. The map is huge, Good character creation, Smooth combat, Epic guns, Ark falls are insane!, And you get sweet vehicles, Fall damage pssh not here, And infinite grenades which is a god send. If you liked Borderlands and are on the fence about this game I would hop on over and pick this game up!
Great for trying something new.
I my self think's this game is for more of people who played MMO's (Massive Multiplayer Online) before but there not hardcore players, but there also not casual. You can play with friends, or if you want you can solo it. But before buying this and or any game do more research than just reading reviews on one site, visit other review sites. Sometimes you can find games for alot cheaper and or even free. I think there's a free to play online trial actually on the defiance webpage.
Just about right
The game is a good one. Plays like a cross between Guild Wars 2 and Borderlands. Since I loved both of those games this is a great combination. There is co-op and also matchmaking which makes the game great to be online with friends. Lot's of friends.
