After hours of downloading and installing patches, I was so ready to finally play this game. I managed to get in a few hours and was really starting to get into it. Then the server issues started and I could only play about half the times I tried to connect and play. Most of the server outages were on Sunday night when my time was most free to play.
What I did play was really good and I could have easily played this game for weeks, but quickly got frustrated with not being able to get on a server and play when I wanted to.

First and foremost, console based MMO's are a huge task to get functioning correct and with Defiance its been a bit of a struggle. That being said, when its good its really good. I find myself being enveloped in the game, questing with my buddies or taking on an Ark Fall.
It is a free to play MMO so it's going to have its fair share of issues. If you can look over latency issues and server quips, you'll find an above average console based MMO.
