Just wonder ..

Out of experience with this site, the more hyped game is often the worse ^^ (i.e. WoWP <-> WoT)

 

So is Defiance comparable to FireFall at all ?

Or is it more like PS2 ?

I don't know but i love strawberry as well as vanilla. Both taste amazing to me. Why do i have to choose one over the other?

By the way more hype doesn't always mean bad..look at GW2 for example.

It's different, I wouldn't compare them too closely and look for which one is "best".

Defiance is largely skill based. Firefall's Frames are more class based so there's a different dynamic right away. The only thing they have in common is that their both Third Person PvE shooters. The character progression is totally different.

One may suit a persons playstyle more than the other, but for me personally, I intend to play both. There's no reason why anyone shouldn't, they're both fun.

I've been looking at both games for a while.  In my opinion, FireFall has more potential to be better because Red 5 has been doing a lot to make it a more fun game, including scrapping systems that were lackluster and rebuilding them from scratch if needed.  It sounds like they have been steadily improving the game as well, but still have a ways to go. The video from Red 5 at PAX East talks about their work and plans.

It's going to be a matter of preference.  Both games are questionable as of today.  Defiance may only be fashionable for a short time, and FireFall is not even done yet.

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

Firefall is f2p as I remember.

 

I keep away from f2p games. I hate I have to use my wallet every frigging time I want to do something.

I know that Defiance has a cash shop but Defiance is not P2W where you have to pay for respec etc.

PS2, Defiance, and Firefall are all different. 

PS2 has no PvE content at all. It's basically a large RvR game with guns and vehicles both land and air). I personally like the game. 

 

Defiance is a MMOTPS with PvE and PvP (Focus is on PvE). There are a great number of things to do. You have the main mission, the story missions, side missions,time trials, rampages, emergencies, hot shots, "Dynamic Events", random encounters, Team PvP, Deathmatch PvP, World Bosses, Co-op maps, and more :P I personally like the game. 

 

Firefall is actually is somewhere in between the two to be honest, but I actually don't like it. Some will find it more appealing, some will not. I don't like the artistic style of the game and while it sounds like there is a lot of variety in the betas I didn't find a great deal of variety in the content. It's not a bad game, it just isn't a game for me. I do recomend you check it out for yourself. Hop in the beta or play it when it launches since its a free to play.

Going to give the nod to Defiance. It's an actually released c ame that has been fun so far. Firefall is still an idea as far as I'm concerned and Firefall is p2p , once I find out p2p I no longer care what comes if the game.

You can't compare the 2. When in doubt, play the F2P one and wait for the other one to start a trial.

Feel like trying Planetside 2? Get a headstart with the starter kit!

It's a strange thing. Defiance is an actual mmo with all the trimmings. It has all the deficiencies of an mmo as well. Firefall lacks the content of an mmo but plays a bit like Unreal Tournament.

I would say Defiance is better simply because it has more content, is further along in development, and has a clearer design goal.

I don't think Firefall will ever get anywhere as they don't know what the hell they want.

Its a matter of opinion and preference.

To me Defiance has much better PvE, much better game engine, and I just have more fun playing Defiance.

Also its nice to see my nephews playing it for hours last night on XBox, which they couldn't with Firefall, as they don't have a gaming PC.

Also talked to my neighbor this morning she said she found her husband passed out in front of the TV with Defiance still running lol! 

Anyway, I will check out FF again when more stuff gets added, feels really unfinished to me.

Exactly...however both games do have some similarities but over all i enjoyed both. Firefall is lot more focued on PVP side though and Defiance on PVE side.

PVE was very lacking in Firefall when last time i tried it.

Firefall has progressed a lot now. Thing is they don't have a lot of money like Trion. It is a small development house and that is why they are going slow. Moreover they are trying to make PVP side more fun than PVE. So if you like playing PVP more i would say Firefall will be more to your liking.

I wouldn't play Firefall.. and it's free.

I'd be happy to play Defiance.. but I have other things I am playing at the moment.

I'd say Defiance is 'definately' better than Firefall. I've played both in the betas and Firefall didn't even come close.

There is some truth here. Red 5 seems to be confused about what FireFall is, and I often wonder if the game will ever make it out of development since they keep re-writing things.  On the other hand, I do like that they don't feel obligated to keep lackluster systems in the game just because they already wrote it.  We see a lot of that these days, and it sucks.

These (FF and Def) are my current main MMOs. Seems to be the age of the shooty MMO but thats not bad!

 

I wouldnt look too hard at comparing them. They both are MMOs and use guns but the feel and play is different in both. Jetpacks give FF a faster fight. Jumping and jetting to safe spots to unload on .... yes... more bugs.  Also I think something to note about the new firefall (update 0.6) the weapon set up reminds me very much of LoL. while the games are very differant, You have your main weapon and then 3 skills you can change and then an "ULT" that repends on your class/frame. Also its good to note that FF you have a realy ability to change the world... or at least for a short time.

Defiance is much more grounded (no jetpacks... duh :) but thats doesnt make it less fun. The number of guns and mods is wonderful! The game feels a bit like Rift at times with a twist but thats not a bad thing. the archfalls are just like Rifts but it looks like everyone gets their own loot so no loot stealing! Oh... and the atvs and such give Def a great feel. i spend so much time just riding my atv like a loon! :) ... The only thing at this point that frustrates me about Def is the chat... how hard is it to get the chat system and menus right? I just dont understand things like that. how can you have Rift with a smooth easy to use social system to this awful crap that is utterly useless. My friends and I talk on IM for now and bypass the ingame chat. Im sure they will fix it but... ugh

Welcome Home

Hello

 

Firefall is currently all about the potential.  At some point if everything works out perfectly, Firefall will be a beast of an MMO, however it has been a work in progress for many years and continues to be so.  You can take that as you may, either as a sign that the dev are truly dedicated or the the devs have no idea what they are doing and seeing what works.

Defiance on the other hand is all about the production, the game runs smothly, has a number of game systems in place (PVP, CO-OP, Dynamic Evnets, Quest tied into the TV show.)  The game can not and wil lnever have the potential that Firefall has, but it apears that the devs have a grasp on what they want their game to be and the current game is 'more' complete.

 

The question you asked is what game is better, neither, they are diffrent in scope, production and point of development. 

 

Welcome Home

Rev.

I've played both and they feel different.  Defiance feels more like a console shooter and more serious where Firefall is repetitive jump boot flying combat and a lot more silly fun.  I think you could play both of them, Defiance being your more serious play time and then Firefall just to blow off steam and goof off.

No bitchers.
