Purchased? No.

There was a theme of lacking hustle from the developers that told me to keep my wallet away.

Yes.  I bought it and didn't care for it one bit.

Release a game with a very large established fanbase from 10+ years of bnet history when the market was still emerging and the casual base had not yet been established, thus ripe for harvesting a momentious self perpetuating playerbase people never leave because they have X hours invested in their characters, and their friends and everyone else plays anyway. Not discounting Blizzard quality... but WoW's success is as much about perfect timing as it is quality, if not more so. - Derros

Got it for 30% off or something. It's fun but buggy ...probably not a game to play more than a few months as a casual. Overall I think it was worth it.

Yea I definitely find it worth just as much as the box price of any other game I have played and more so than some.

The more you know, the more you know you don't know.

For the is just about right. Fun with friends. Don't live in the game like so many seem to wish to do.

I was in the proper 'always on' beta for the game for months and didn't buy the game after.. if that helps.

I'd honestly say wait for a sale, if that's why you're asking.. but some people seem to love it so.. you could be one of them.

The thing is... you're important to a lot of people.

Bought it from a cd-key shop for  a decent price and I would say I disliked it more than I liked it... just because the feeling of progression felt a little off alongside a direct copy of Borderlands style, couldn't have that. It was smoothe though.

I didn't buy it, because I didn't like it when I did play it.  Heh.

I actually played Beta and loved the game. The entire franchise is entertaining to me. The mechanics we're well set and smooth and the story was well written!

If upon login you see a bunch of UI buttons that allow you to queue for stuff, quit immediately.

IMHO it's quite possibly the worst MMO ever made.  If someone plans to reply to that, keep in mind the 'IMHO' part of that statement.  

At this low point in MMO gaming, I refuse to play even the shiniest turd.

First few days I played it really loved it, minus a few things.  Three weeks later got a refund on my season pass, uninstalled and will never play again.  Defiance is like the opposite of a game that grows on you.  At first it hits you hard and within no time you're bored out of your mind and sick of it.  Well, at least that was the case for me.

Bought it, played it once and was so disappointed that I shelved it. It's not entirely bad, but if I wanted shallow twitch play I can

play CoD or Halo.

I would like to give an opinion on this post, but if I agree I will offend people who disagree. While if I disagree my comment will be seen as inflammatory. Either way I will get banned by this site full of the most delicate flowers in online gaming. Ban people for giving honest opinions... beautiful. Unfortunately I still like the articles.

What it does it does well. It just needs to do a hell of a lot more to give it longevity and depth, which now worries me as the layoffs occurred. If there is any game out right now that needed more content and NO LAYOFF's its Defiance.

Bought it liked it, really liked the leveling feature. Areas are not out leveled, this helps with exploring and immersion.  However, the chat was so bad, that after I finished the main story I just left. Not being able to communicate and see that the world is alive makes for little to do at end game. But played it for 70+ hours for 60 bucks. That is a hell of a lot better than most sp games coming out nowadays.

The missing chat window is the bad part of the game for me. I don't know how they can fix that with console players running around because they can't all type.

I'm 25 or 30 hours in and I love how much better this is than most mmos - vehicles move fast, critters have AI and attack ranges are long. Also, no trinity. For me this is much closer to a next Gen MMO after EQ1 than Wow or GW2 or SWTOR. Assuming their cash shop doesn't try to nickel and dime me, I'll likely be playing this for awhile.

I tried the beta and disliked everything about it... I love the show on the other hand, can't wait to watch tonight's episode. It's the highlight of my Monday evening.

I think the game is absolutely worth the box price. Especially if you enjoy doing side quests.


However, that said, I don't find any reason to log on anymore. But I do think the initial play-through makes it worth $50
