Defiance is a game developed by Trion Worlds and the SyFy channel.
The Earth was terraformed during a war with the an alien encounter. Now, both aliens and humans are working together to restore the world.
Game installs and starts. All movies and audio are beatifully rendered.
What does not
Everything seems to work as expected (outside the server disconnects).
What was not tested
Anything outside the training, beginning, area.
Giving Silver rating for the server disconnects; however, these are not client side and the development team is actively working on this (4/2/2013). One this concern is corrected, I will re-evaluate the rating.

(12/9/2016) - Need to install Glyph now. Glyph installs well and works. As for Defiance, if using Wine-staging 1.9.23 it will work for a bit and give the connection to server failed mention. I caould play 9 or so minutes and put the video on my YouTube page.
Old way: I created a new 32bit PREFIX (deleted the beta one) and installed via winetricks: corefonts gdiplus ie8 msls31 pngfilt vcrun2010 winhttp wininet wsh56vb xmllite
