agreed they overscore all their reviews:)

Aye ^

Honestly this is probably one of the few honest reviews IGN has done in a long time.

I guess Trion forgot to send them free swag.

 Exactly my thought!  I think in fairness it is a good game for Xbox and PS3, but mediocre at best for the pc.

Cheers!

Actually Defiance scored between 5-7 from close to 20 professional reviews now so it really doesn't matter what IGN says

To each their own. I've been playing MMOs since the early days of UO and have found few of them enjoyable. WoW and LOTRO were exceptions, but even those didn't last too long. The highly praised Guild Wars had me bored in a day. I'm enjoying Defiance. I also bought it knowing full well it wasn't an MMORPG. It's feels a lot like a multiplayer version of crackdown (loved it), which I expected it would.

As for reviews, if you want to know where to find them done right, check out shacknews.com and their podcast Weekend Confirmed. They're honest, provide a number of viewpoints (on the podcast) and don't throw out meaningless numbers and stars. They tell you what the game is like, it's pros and cons, and then throw in a little of their personal opinion.

Can agree with everything in the review.

This game is as much a MMO as Battlefield 3 is.

Hell, in BF3 I at least have a team/group that I am working toward an objective with.

A percentage on the review score would be based on the amount of advertising the developer spent with the site. Less money= slightly lower score than sites where the developer spent more.

The consensus of 5-7 in scores shows the reality though.

 

Based on my theory MMORPG will give Scarlet Blade will get a higher score here (mmorpg) than other sites even though its real rating should be 1.5 )

I bought the game when it was on sale a week or so ago for $33.

I haven't played it much, but the amount that I have played, I do not like.  It feels like a very cheap 3rd person shooter to me.  And the focus on PVE seems like a step backward if you have played any online first or third person shooters (APB:R included).

Not sure why but there is absolutely 0 falling damage in this game.  Not sure why that's a choice?  Did the Earth's gravity change or something?

For those that like it, good for you.  I'm not saying it's a bad game;  I just do not like what I have played thus far.

I don't know, the dialogue and the combat were still better than Forsaken World and that got a 7.3 somehow even though it was like playing with a Chinese finger trap in the dark, underwater.
