Defiance is 1 of the best games I've played in years.

I think this is pretty much the only MMO i have come to like, not many people who act like jerks and just ruin your gaming experience by being total ***** I have had alot of bad experiences with MMOs in the past and Defiance came like a much needed relief in terms of MMOs. I have not encountered any bugs at all except for one little thing where a random quest didnt quite finish but a quick relog fixed it. Really enjoying the story overall in it aswell, on my 3rd playthrough on my first character at the moment along with my brother and cousin.

I actually love Defiance. I play whenever I can and I'm in a great guild with a lot of fun people. In fact, our guild founder placed 2nd in the whole "get your character on the TV show" contest. So you're not alone in liking the game, you just have to remember that what most people are upset about is the fact that, to them, the game lacks content. Once you've done all the Story and Side Mission plus all the various Challenges and what not, the only things left to do really are chase Arkfalls, run Sieges or do PVP, and to some people that's just not enough, especially for those people who paid the original retail price

Well, you got lucky, becasue I've hit quite a few bugs. From faulty Arkfalls (the Hellion's body is in mid-air and the glands are near impossible to hit) to glitches that send a player back so far on a co-op map that the group has to quit the run and start over. I've even had Sieges get stuck. Hell, right now there's a glitch that makes it impossible to complete one of the Volge Persuits. But I expect bugs in an MMO, and like you I've never really been a fan of MMOs in general. Partly because I dislike subscriptions and partly becasue I'm often prefer to play solo.

But Trion is fixing the bugs as they get reports of them, and it's still a fun game to play.

While i generally agree with this point I've got to say thats because Defiance really isn't an MMO in the original sense.
It's set in an open online world but the player interaction is so incredibly rudimental that there is basically no room for the usual issues many MMOs suffer from.

But to get back to topic, while i never really understood the mentality of flamers they are in every game especially in the online genre.
The people simply enjoying the game don't really have a reason to raise their voice because... well they like the game.
People who come to dislike it often feel mistreated or misinformed in some way and tend to start discussions about it.

I like Defiance over nearly every other MMO-style game I've played because:
A: It doesn't just kill me because I'm not at X skill level (It kills me because I've made a tactical mistake... Like running into a Dark Matter Arkfall with a cluster of Ark-Enhanced gits)
B: I don't have to listen to a bunch of chinese goldspammers and 13 year olds whining for groups, gold or help.
C: People on Defiance automatically help each other without needing to talk. Alot of the times I've played an Arkfall with around 50 people and not a single word was spoken. Everyone fought together, healed each other and rezzed without speaking to each other. Awesomely powerful stuff.

Oh, and there is the whole 'Wizz bang shooty fun without feeling like I HAVE to grind to level up' aspect too.

What FarleShadow said. Defo my favourite game of the year so far. That said there's several I've bought I thought were decidely meh despite rave reviews.. different games grab different people, I guess. Not worth sweating about.

What I do find find totalling baffling is the after-sale marketing. I play more than enough to justify paying a little for a new outfit or two purely for eye candy, but the prices are just extortionate - and you still have to pay for the bloody hat on top! Pay-for lock-boxes, as anyone who has played for a while will know, are a total waste of time. So who is buying that stuff?! Likewise the upgrade kit. Pack half a dozen outfits (hats and shades included!) for a tenner, though, and I'd be queuing up to pay.

i have 100 hours plus in, its a great game. just riding around jumping in arkfalls, volge fights and all of that seems something easily after a hards days work:) its just so relaxing

you mean, your discussion.
Milisim Sep 20, 2013 @ 6:02pm 
I have 240 hour sin and still love it. Im taking a break from it right now though due to DLC offering no new content and im kinda burtn out alittle... but I bought the seaon pass and cant wait to pick it up again soon

It may be repetetive but what MMO is not repetetive in its own right? This game is a breath of fresh air from the traditional, press 1-9 + shift + Ctrl keys and watch the bar go from 0% cast to 100% cast... at least here you know, if you shoot your going to shoot... not wait for a cast bar.

I remember the advertisements for Global Agenda, that was the best description i can give to this game essentailly, no Cast bars and no Mages... i like this game because its fun in terms of exploring and you can have a decent amount of fun with friends no matter what level they are.

you can always die from seemingly low level characters, even in duels or deathmatch or even in open world you can die, its not like your going to tank for them and not worry about your shields dying.

the game has its ups and downs, but thats any other game in its own way... at least here you can play a shooter without having to deal with the voice chat system that ruins the fun.

I love this game, been playing since start. i dont get the hate either
CyberDown Sep 20, 2013 @ 10:00pm 
I bought defiance over bioshock infinate...was gonna buy one TPS game.

Got way more game time out of defiance (recently added it to steam btw) than i would have with bioshock...and defiance is a game ill go back to..where bioshock i wouldnt have after beating it.

Its a pretty fun guild wars 2 but with guns.

Lacks a long mmorpg storyline though...youll burn through content kind of quick...but its still a good game to putz around on and do all the side stuff and challanges...

Its certainly not an unfun game, nor was it ever...i think the games biggest issue is that Trion made it, and they make MMORPG games, and so a lot of MMORPG players tried it expecting that...and it kind of was but wasnt a good mmorpg...where its a really good TPS game that isnt based on pvp matches ect...

so you had a lot of "this game sucks im going back to wow" kind of hate thrown on the game...and it really is a good alternative to GW2...and that community is really savage with tearing down other it got a lot of heat from those people.

The only thing they did wrong was offer it for the xbox, yeah they got more sales but if it was just PS3/4 and PC everyone could have played together like with FFXIV...and that is awesome imo...shame microsoft doesnt allow that.

For what they are charging now for the game...if the sound of driving aroudn running over bug monsters, jumping your car or atv off cliffs, and comming across 75 people and some massive enemies sounds interesting...and you like PVE based TPS would be stupid not to pick this game up for its price...most of the cash shop stuff is looks or repainted cars/atvs you can get in game (and you can unlock deco stuff from clearing content) Lock boxes can be bought for rewards from doing the dynamic events so there is zero reason to pay for them (no you dont need keys to unlock you oddly enough use keys to buy them, which drop in game)

Oh and a really cool and diverse set of weapons...i think i have something like 110 weapons in my inventory and i only have duplicates of a few (game has in interesting level up think on weapons which gives it a bonus but then stopps advancing your character weapon skill if used so spares with no XP is must)
