easy to jump into fun
gamestop really needs to glance at these reviews and remove the ones from people on bad connections and trying to play games on cheap machines. this review is for the pc version only. im using a mid range machine, and the games runs like a champ, graphics are nice, no server problems so far, sounds great. this game is very easy to jump into and enjoy even for the more casual player and can be fairly challenging, theres 4 different classes each with special and upgradeable EGO abilities, weapons gain experience and can be modded, you get an atv mount very early in the game that makes travel easy, theres no kill stealing, you can jump into a fight and help somebody out on the side of the road and still get drops, the random ark fall events are pretty entertaining. defiance isnt your traditional mmo, i dont know what staying power itll have in the long run but there is NO SUBSCRIPTION FEE, so youre dropping the same money that you would for any other game on defiance thats still evolving. if you have a decent internet connection and a decent rig, and enjoy gunplay give it a try.
to those that like the ME series this blows it out of the water get them guns and run just finished my first multiplayer raid with over 60 playera and it was Great!! a must buy for scifi fans play the game watch the show.
Patching on this game is horrible, don't think you can buy the game and start playing 30 minutes later. Not going to happen. Wish developers would finished the game before they launch it. I D/L Diablo3,LoL and Swtor all at the same time in 45 minutes. This game took over 5 hours. don't buy unless you have patients..
Not even close to being good.
I was tired of board and sword MMO. But this game was the worst first person shooter MMO. If you like scifi the show is great but the game gets very boring and reaptive very fast. At least the sword and medievil fantasy mmos make a better play then this. Please do not waste your money just watch the show.
Need friends for fun
The game is pretty fun but is incredibly hard if you don't have friends of a party of players because the game will throw 50 enemies at your lone self and they keep respawning which makes the defend missions nearly impossible. The gun are also kinda boring and repetitive.
Best Scifi MMO on the market
I was tired of board and sword MMO, then I found Defiance. Great 3rd person shooter in a MMO. Guns have different effects like fire or lighting, gunplay is tight. The story goes hand and hand with the tv show that launches soon. I watched the 15 min preview to the show and have already seen a great tie in to the game. If your are a gamer and a scifi nut this is a game for you. Do yourself a favor and buy it now.
No Good, Can't Connect
I had high hopes for this game, I even convinced a friend to go out and buy it with me so we could play online (PC Version, I actually bought the hard copy). I have not yet been able to connect to the servers and play. I initially assumed there was a patch and a server restart. So I waited. My friend bought the game and was able to log in and play just fine. So I went back to troubleshooting. I have tried going through each of their troubleshooting steps (delete the patcher log, make sure my region was correct, re-download/install the client), then I went on to disable my firewall, anti-virus, update everything possible, dmz my router, reinstall the game and download the 2 hour patch again, submit a trouble ticket and day 2, I am no further now than I was when I bought the game. I really wanted this to be a fun distraction and didn't have a lot of preconceived notions, just run around and shoot some stuff with a friend. I can't even do that. With only a few hours to play now and then, I didn't want to sit here all day trying to get it to work. I hope that I can get to the bottom of it, but at this point, this is on the to be returned stack unless I can resolve it in the very near future. Disappointing.
Great game! Fun and exciting!
I really enjoy playing this game. It's fun, new and exciting! I have been looking for a new game for a while. After being disappointed with other games and there expansions, it is a great feeling to find something new and exciting!
Great MMO with no Monthly Fee
I have spent 60 bucks on plenty of games. But I can not remember the last time I got pulled into a game like this. Until I unlocked the achievement for 5 hours of PVP play >.<. That was on release. Gameplay is awesome! 3 times of multiplay with matchmaking. 2 deathmatch, 6v6 or 8v8 first team to 50 kills whens. Then there is a world PVP 32v32 node capture. It goes on right in the real world. And the last is the "flashpoint" or dungions called co-op. Team of 4 go in and kill stuff together. Plus the main story is HUGE! Over 20 major parts. Has all the voice acting that SWTOR had but less of it so you enjoy it more. I am having trouble going back to SWTOR to get ready for expansion because I just want to play this.
