Some free-to-play games are more polarizing than others, with some sides taking the stance of “great, totally non-exploitative implementation” and others thinking “total pay-to-win trash.” We’d like to see on what side of the spectrum the gaming public — and by that, we mean you guys — think of certain F2P games, and so we’ve invented something new called Love It Or Hate It?
Every week, we’ll present a new F2P game and give you the option of passing judgment on it. Then we’ll look back at it the next week and see what people thought. There are no prizes, except for the satisfaction of knowing you clicked on a button and made something happen. Really, what else do you need?
Last week, we asked for your opinion on TERA and the response was overwhelmingly positive, with 52% choosing “Love” with only 10% in the “Hate” territory. It’s probably best that I don’t state my own opinion on the game, so MOVING ON…
Let’s try something a little different this time: Trion’s open-world shooter TV-show-made-buy-to-play-gone-free-to-play game Defiance!
Pros: Open-world action, solid voice acting and cut scenes, variety of gameplay modes
Cons: Ties to show can be restrictive, questionable enemy AI
Tell us what you think of Defiance, and leave a comment below to expound upon your views!
