    imagine my pain I dropped 90 bucks on this title, would have been better off wiping my rear end with the bills.

    Still not worth it. I regret deeply paying full price for this POS. The show isn't too bad tho.

    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.

    At this rate the servers will be shut down in 3-6 months..,

    I don't see Defiance lasting more than 6 months before being shut down or going through a major game design overhaul. Its just a bad shooter with some rpg elements. Its similar in design to Tabula Rasa but not as good.

     

    So in short I would not recommend this game to a friend even if it was free.

    This game is great only if they fix the not being to play with friends bug/Phasing. 

    Also, Tabula Rasa was THE WORST MMOFPS EVER MADE.

    I know it was the worst MMOFPS ever made that was my point...

    keep in mind this was built for the consoles, just so happens they ported it over to PC.  I think it was a good attempt at trying to bring something to the console markets that is otherwise non-existent.

    the idea was innovative, material was like the 3rd generation of saturday night live

    the show and the game are total crap. the ui, game design and lack of useful chat function just makes it feel so solitary in nature. its a single player game trying to be a mmo

    Im still debating to get this or not.I did play in the beta.Price wise,if this last's say a month.10euro's it's not bad at all
  • RattenmannRattenmann ReitmehringPosts: 510Member Uncommon
    Not going to last a month tho. If you are really resistant to a swallow game it MIGHT last you untill after the tutorial is over and you notice that the content is already over.

    MMOs finally replaced social interaction, forced grouping and standing in a line while talking to eachother.

    Now we have forced soloing, forced questing and everyone is the hero, without ever having to talk to anyone else. The evolution of multiplayer is here! We won,... right?

    Is there enough of a game to keep you going or does boredom hit fast?

    cmon , for 9,99$ ? what you looking for... exchange for real life?

    only EVE is real MMO...but I am impressive with TSW

    That is my point, especially if you like the show, for $10 if you put 20 hours in your basically paying .50 cents per hour for entertainment.. and there is more then 20 hours of content between the main mission, side missions, tv missions the races/rampages and arc falls.

    If you don't like shooters of any kind, sci-fi and expect this to be a typical MMO, then yes.. this game isn't for you, but for $10... anyone complaining about that price is either a kid, or needs a new job.

    Looks like Defiance's Cash Shop sales are not delivering the desired income and/or it's not retaining players. Truth is, the CS is so optional that nobody probably spends a cent in it...

    It's a pity really, the TV series and MMO link-up was a novel idea. However, it flopped as a "feature" because the link was very superficial.

    Perhaps the next attempt will be more successful, but I doubt we'll be seeing it soon.

    I just tried it out using the 72 hour free trial , I did not enjoy it enough to play past a few hours of time. I did not like the UI or the game play itself. Looks like an interesting idea but poorly implemented.

    the game is boring, once u get leveled there is almost nothing to do .. PVP is a bunch of people bunny hopping around so you cant target them .. so you end up having to use shotguns, or full auto weapons .. the city of defiance isnt even in the game .. only san fran .. and it doesnt look like san fran sept they have a bombed out bridge .. thats it .. i had high expectations, what a let down .  IMHO!
  • RoxtarrRoxtarr Freeland, MI, MIPosts: 1,122Member
    I beta tested it and didn't think it was worth the $30 or $40 it started at. Might be worth $10 though, I might pick it up.

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    After looking most UK stores have it between £15.99 & £34.99 still, only Steam & Origin have it at £6.99 - but I don't really want steam or origin so I'll wait till the price filters through to the rest of the retailers.

    Ya me and a lot of others don't care that the city of Defiance isn't in the game (San Fran is no where near St Luis, kind of weird its so far away) but the reason you don't see anything naturally related to San Fran aside from a blown up bridge is because the world was teraformed. 

    The arch in St Luis remained , but that is all.. rest of Defiance is a dust bowl... some of the city is in the mines below the city of Defiance though.

    They are offering a 72Hour PC Trial

    Just for info :)

    I tried repeatedly to express my concerns for the title and even provided some game design one sheets... it didn't matter.

     

    The game ended up a sadly shallow experience when it could have been so much more.

    Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

    BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    Exactly....still overpriced.  At $5 maybe...

    Just because every car has similar features doesn't mean that Ferraris are copies of Model Ts. Progress requires failure and refining.

    Maybe this is a better way to go at the TV/Game tie in?

    Quantum is exclusive to xbox one, no one I know will touch that console when the PS4 hands down is the better box.  Especially when you look at what you have to do with all the Microsoft restrictions.  CCP could not even work out a deal to get their console game on their service.  Has to tell you that dealing with them is a real pain in the butt.
