    Well worth the money

    Defiance is an exciting, fast paced shooter in an MMO world that is wholly fascinating.

    I have to admit that I am a tad bias. Defiance just so happens to take place in my own backyard, the San Francisco Bay Area. However, that could have also led to disappointment. Yet, despite some setb...

    Do NOT waste your time with this game. Wait until it hits your bargain bin! It is NOT worth $60!

    This is one of the worst MMO FPS games I have ever played. The animations are stiff and boring. There are no "take cover" animations. You see NPCs taking cover but you can't. The AI is non-existen...

    Defiance - a game that should have been made a lot time ago.

    Alright - I'm not going to beat around the bush here. I want to make this short, sweet, and to the point: Imagine playing Freedom Fighters - http://www.gamespot.com/freedom-fighters/ Excep...

    Fun, addictive, fast-paced and sometimes a bit repetitive, but fantastic!

    For a game shared with a TV show universe, you would expect there to be more of an introduction to what you are about to immerse yourself into. For Defiance there is very little to educate you on wher...

    Fast, Fun and Fantastic! Value for money!

    Great new game. Highly addictive and smooth gameplay. There have been a few hiccups since the launch, but overall the Devs are doing a great job. In my opinion it can only improve with time. The c...

    Worth checking out!<br />

    Great game. Hate all the uninformed/clueless/ignorant gripes about the game. Viable complaints (IMO): UI~ it's not very smooth but just takes a minute to get used to. Quick menu makes it tol...

    An MMO/Shooter/RPG/TV show prequel with massive potential on PC, but is weighed down by clearly being a console port.

    Rated on April 07, 2013 by jmace1

    Defiance is the latest MMO game from the Developers at Trion Worlds, the creators of the now free to play MMORPG, Rift. It's ambitious, it's fun, it's flawed, and it's ultimately a work in progress. S...

    Fallout+Borderlands+RAGE+Dash of HALO+Heavy Action=Defiance, and pure AWESOME!

    Rated on April 07, 2013 by groovus

    Right off the bat, Defiance has pulled me in from just the story, art direction, early videos. It was worth every penny I spent on it so far. I freakin love it. Its a MMO, but just enough different to...
