Really Bad

Average with too much Hype

It's a basic open world third person shooter with an MMO feeling. But the problem with the massive multi-player aspect is that there are way too many people trying to play it. That in turn causes the system to crash and kick me out all of the time, besides the freezing up and other players lost in the atmosphere. Always makes me feel like there's a hacker trying to get into my stuff.

I played Defiance for 2 hours yesterday because I was really bored and had bought it 3 days ago. This game, while a little buggy (but VERY PLAYABLE), is so enjoyable! It reminds of Borderlands with more customization, car choices, mods (as in weapon modifiers), and objectives to do. The story is flowing really well, and I can't believe it runs so smoothly for how many people can be on one server. By the way, if you don't know already, it is an MMO RPG, or massive-multiplayer-online role-playing-game. You can play with friends or complete randoms, and still enjoyment is to be had. The only drawback is the bugginess, but it still runs better than Fallout Games, and I don't know if that's because I am playing the game after 3 major patches, but hey... who cares. People who judge a game on the first day are not very wise...

Overview
======================
There is without a doubt a faction of people craving a MMO on consoles that will like this game and say it is great regardless of its issues.

I really wanted to like this game, but I couldn't find any real reason to play it. The concept is great like Dust 514 is, but the execution is 2nd rate at best.

The graphics are pretty bad. There is no story per se. The controls are not that good and there are frame rate issues. There are just so many games that do a shooter better (this is just a neat concept that they failed to achieve).
