    Purchased? No.

    There was a theme of lacking hustle from the developers that told me to keep my wallet away.

    Yes.  I bought it and didn't care for it one bit.

    Got it for 30% off or something. It's fun but buggy ...probably not a game to play more than a few months as a casual. Overall I think it was worth it.

    Fun game when all I want to do is log in a blow shit up for a half hour or so.

    Yea I definitely find it worth just as much as the box price of any other game I have played and more so than some.

    For the price....it is just about right. Fun with friends. Don't live in the game like so many seem to wish to do.

     

    Let's party like it is 1863!

    I was in the proper 'always on' beta for the game for months and didn't buy the game after.. if that helps.

    I'd honestly say wait for a sale, if that's why you're asking.. but some people seem to love it so.. you could be one of them.

    Bought it from a cd-key shop for  a decent price and I would say I disliked it more than I liked it... just because the feeling of progression felt a little off alongside a direct copy of Borderlands style, couldn't have that. It was smoothe though.

    I didn't buy it, because I didn't like it when I did play it.  Heh.
  • nicariftnicarift douglas, WYPosts: 69Member
    I actually played Beta and loved the game. The entire franchise is entertaining to me. The mechanics we're well set and smooth and the story was well written!

    Yep.

    IMHO it's quite possibly the worst MMO ever made.  If someone plans to reply to that, keep in mind the 'IMHO' part of that statement.  

    At this low point in MMO gaming, I refuse to play even the shiniest turd.

    First few days I played it really loved it, minus a few things.  Three weeks later got a refund on my season pass, uninstalled and will never play again.  Defiance is like the opposite of a game that grows on you.  At first it hits you hard and within no time you're bored out of your mind and sick of it.  Well, at least that was the case for me.

  • DauntisDauntis Kansas City, MOPosts: 548Member Uncommon

    Bought it, played it once and was so disappointed that I shelved it. It's not entirely bad, but if I wanted shallow twitch play I can

    play CoD or Halo.

    I would like to give an opinion on this post, but if I agree I will offend people who disagree. While if I disagree my comment will be seen as inflammatory. Either way I will get banned by this site full of the most delicate flowers in online gaming. Ban people for giving honest opinions... beautiful. Unfortunately I still like the articles.

    What it does it does well. It just needs to do a hell of a lot more to give it longevity and depth, which now worries me as the layoffs occurred. If there is any game out right now that needed more content and NO LAYOFF's its Defiance.
  • DemalisDemalis Drumheller, ABPosts: 134Member
    Bought it liked it, really liked the leveling feature. Areas are not out leveled, this helps with exploring and immersion.  However, the chat was so bad, that after I finished the main story I just left. Not being able to communicate and see that the world is alive makes for little to do at end game. But played it for 70+ hours for 60 bucks. That is a hell of a lot better than most sp games coming out nowadays.
  • FennrisFennris White Plains, NYPosts: 273Member
    The missing chat window is the bad part of the game for me. I don't know how they can fix that with console players running around because they can't all type.

    I'm 25 or 30 hours in and I love how much better this is than most mmos - vehicles move fast, critters have AI and attack ranges are long. Also, no trinity. For me this is much closer to a next Gen MMO after EQ1 than Wow or GW2 or SWTOR. Assuming their cash shop doesn't try to nickel and dime me, I'll likely be playing this for awhile.

    I tried the beta and disliked everything about it... I love the show on the other hand, can't wait to watch tonight's episode. It's the highlight of my Monday evening.

    I think the game is absolutely worth the box price. Especially if you enjoy doing side quests.

     

    However, that said, I don't find any reason to log on anymore. But I do think the initial play-through makes it worth $50

    Console players are not on the same server as PC, so they could do something specific for PC. They may eventually, but I don't know of any interviews saying they will

    It's an average MMORPG and an average FPS. Nothing really that special. It's an OK game but that's about it.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Average MMO?  There's only one or two like it that I know of.  What do you mean average?  As for the FPS... again, only one or two allow for 50 people to be fighting in the same area for the same objectives.  You may not like it, you may not be impressed, but it's not just another shooter and it's not just another eq clone.

     It has almost no content within the game. I feel a bit scammed from this product. I essentially have to wait for them to add DLC to equate to a standard MMO. Yeah, that's right. I think this game has less content then other MMO's recently released. So not only do I have no content right now. But I have to pay for any additional content they release.

    Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

    I don't feel quite scammed , but am extremely let down by Trion overall with this game. Just not at all up to the standards I'd expected of them after Rift.

    I can see why it got in the 60's from PCGamer this month , it might be reasonable on the console side , but on the PC side , it's barely a passing grade for a full retail price game.

     I'm in no way happy with this game. I personally feel like there's significantly less to do in this game than just about any other MMO I've played recently. Heck I played Neverwinter Online and beat it within the first 5 days of its release and I'm more content with the content they had in it. The content went by fast but there was something new or unique to do every 5-10 levels.

     In Defiance, there really isn't much and if I want the game to feel like fully loaded game. I have to pay for the DLC and wait for it to slowly release. This game is a major let down and Trion will not be getting anymore of my money. I might be a nobody but I'd personally rate Defiance as a 3/10 on my scale. I expect better than this; especially when I have to fork over $60.00.
