I won't say i care but i do take them into consideration before i am about to buy a game.

 I do find it interesting that the professional reviews see more in the middle ground, wheras user reviews are either positive or negative.

I think that shows why some people still prefer critic reviews, they tend to be more tempered with both pros and cons, wheras users will just polarise one way or the other. Im sure most of the 9 and 10 votes are just because those players think its unfair that others are downvoting it, rather than the game actually being worth that. And vice versa for the 0 and 1 scores.

It's just funny all the "die hard" fans are trashing IGN at the moment, while the majority of gamers are giving DEFIANCE a "mediocre" rating as well.

Have not played, but seen gameplay and read reviews from both critics and players. It seems that a fair rating for the game seems to be around 60-70 for Defiance. It is also the rating I would give for the tv-series based on the first episode.

Yup. I think metacritic should retain numerical scores for critics and just give users the thumbs up or down option.

IMO, the game IS mediocre.  But it's still a game, and it still is making me have a little bit of fun.  Rift sucked at launch.  I came back a year later and subbed for 18 months.  Who knows where this'll end up.  I got caught up and bought the Ultimate edition (I also bought the TOR collectors edition).  The difference is I already played this MORE than TOR.  Soooooooo what does that say?

As for Metacritic, I sort by review but then I scan through a few of each.  You get a good general idea about games that way.  Some games, I don't feel like waiting for reviews on.  IMO it's kind of like comedies at the movies.  YOU KNOW the critics generally give them a low rating.  Even ones that'll make your sides hurt from laughter.  So you take it with a grain of salt.  In general you can find the truth somewhere in the middle.

You seem to know a lot about what people do.  I look at those too though, surprised you didn't know that already.

Just about as funny as people choosing which side of that fence they wish to stand on, depending on what suits their current agenda.

Nothing wrong with IGN when they thrash something I agree with. If I disagree then IGN Is a worthless corrupt review site.

 I can agree with a medicore score. I like the game, and the TV show. 

 I don't feel that the game had any bonus points from these reviewers for stepping away the normal, and trying something new.

 Why do I think they should? Being the first to do something isn't what typically sets the standard in this industry. It's usually the second or third person that took the first design and improved the crap out of it. 

 How many of you can name the first graphical MMO? There were technically two, and I won't deal with the argument of which one of those two were first, I will take either answer as correct. 

Hint: Do not go by what Wikipedia say, they are wrong.

Not so nice guy!

if only review sites were consistant with how they reviewed games.   that defiance score is probably about right.  swtor has an 85 on metacritic.  reviewers need to be just as harsh or as easy on every game.  and not throw out 95 to every new big budget game.  that way when they do give a 90 people will say 'wow a 90' i might have to check that out.''  i do visit metacritic when looking into a game,  but i tend not to look at numbers becuase they meaningless.  i read the reviews and see what is being said.

I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

As a MMO, Defiances stumbles quite a bit.

 

However...

 

As an always-on, CO-OP/PVP TPS, its quite a bit of fun.  In short bursts here and there, the gunplay is more than fun enough to keep me coming back.  

 

However...

 

For my MMO fix, I have TSW and Rift and (crossing fingers on FF14 2.0).
