I'm surprised you'd call that out. There were some awesome visuals -- the Arks, the landscapes -- but the Volge army was the fakiest-looking thing in the whole pilot, like a video-game cut scene (though maybe that was the intent, since this is a "transmedia" crossover with an MMORPG).
I wouldn't say that was the "intent". Game developers would love to have photorealistic games; the tech simply isn't there yet. Since Defiance isn't a deliberately stylized game (along the lines of The Wind Waker or Journey), they'd probably it rather looked as realistic as the live action does.
