As a huge science-fiction nerd and a fan of shooters, I went in really wanting to like Defiance and its new universe. Thing is, it’s just not very good. Rare well-designed quests are overshadowed by a host of others that feel phoned in, and though the fundamentals of shooting are competent, weak enemy AI makes the PvE combat a bore. Respectable PvP combat goes a long way, but not far enough to make Defiance a recommendable experience.

Despite the tedium of the missions, Defiance has a ‘one more go’ thing going for it that other shoot and loot games (COUGHRiptideSPLUTER) don’t. It’s a grindfest, but one that becomes pretty immersive, should you be willing to give it a go – particularly if you’re of a derivative sci-fi bent. Although we still advocate the systematic punishment of the person that wrote ‘saucy little vixen’.

That solid core is a rock worth polishing. Even with its blemishes, there's a lot of enjoyment to be had in the creaking world of Defiance 1.0. Its creators have banked on the "fun shall overcome" school of game design which, with exceptions, Defiance achieves. I only wish it didn't have to overcome quite so much.
