Demanded patch downloads prior to every session. Gaming very glitchy, froze often, and was continually kicked off server. Initial patch took an hour and a half to dl. Gaming redundant and boring. This one is simply not worth the effort it demands and I would sum Defiance up in one word "garbage." Don't waste your time.
This game, like many other reviews state, is off a bit. THe game is great when it comes to ideas and don't get me wrong. The free roam is great. But I couldn't get past playing it for an hour and a half before I put it back in the sleeve. I was disappointed to find that barely any players could be found and there really doesn't seem to be interaction when there is. So here are my pros and cons:
Massive free roam for an "MMORPG".
Graphics are decent.
There are really no instructions.
Hard to know where to go as once the tutorial is done, a whole bunch of quest pop up.
Player customization lacks quantity of items.
Combat system is absolutely DREADFUL.
Enemies re-spawn very fast.
Freezes a lot and not because of the disc.
