    PC is without a doubt the definitive way to play Destiny 2, if you have a system that can handle what the game demands of it. Now that the game has launched across the board, updates and new content will be available on all platforms at once, so PC players don’t have to worry about being left behind. As long as Bungie continues to support the game and ensure that the PC community isn’t ignored in favor of the PS4 or the Xbox One family of systems, Destiny 2 is a game that I will be playing religiously for years to come.

    Though it is held back by a severe lack of social options and PC-specific sandbox tuning, Destiny 2 on PC looks and feels like the best version of one of the best games of 2017.

    The PC version of Destiny 2 replicates the amazing gunplay the first game is known for. The visuals are gorgeous and the environments are so expansive that there is hours worth of exploring to be done. There is a huge amount of content to keep players entertained and almost all of it can be replayed with worthwhile rewards to be gained. This title lives up to its predecessor and has surpassed it in almost every way. For those looking for a casual shooter with a great story or for those who want to challenge themselves in raids and competitive PVP, this title caters to a wide audience making it a great experience all-round.

    Destiny 2 is an excellent game on consoles, but this is the best version.

    A co-op FPS by nature, by being structured and marketed as MMO, Destiny 2 unavoidably gets compared to games from both genres. Its MMO side is simply insufficient due to the lack of content. If Bungie could adopt the subscription model, this game would have simply been just an expansion of the first one, as they are as close to each other as World of Warcraft expansions are to each other. However from the FPS standpoint, Destiny 2 is ticking many boxes. It is correct in its core mechanisms, it has juicy gameplay and it is a worthwhile title that should have been a bit more ambitious with its design.

    PC gamers needn’t worry they missed the first game, as the superior sequel’s endless loops of addiction feel far more honest and rewarding than the flawed original.

    All the elements are there: you’re gunning down massive hordes of baddies and you’re doing so with outstanding visual fidelity, a variety of weapons, and you’re able to cause this mayhem using big, explosive abilities. But, a bit too much of Destiny 2’s action is watered down by long cooldowns, the lazy sit-behind-cover until you’re full-health again, and the way enemies completely lose their ability to aim once your health hits the blinky-red portion of the on-screen life bar. The stakes always seem so low, the rewards so random and barely earned. It’s not a bad game, but it’s not one that lives up to the lofty expectations set by the way it’s marketed and talked about by its fans. Miles wide, but an inch deep: Destiny 2 is not the game it should be.

I love it! I bit like division but first person/scifi/fantasy/post apocalyptic.

    I use discord and other things and have not been banned, that's BS. Devs even admit it, there just blocked from working in game. Also, the low reviews just seem like salty gamers wanting things perfect in their own terms. If you want a game warranted of these zeros, see the new SW Battlefront. I dig destiny 2, a lot.

    Destiny 2 is a game with a weak single player experience, weak main story, underwhelming gunplay, but entertaining cooperative and PvPDestiny 2 is a game with a weak single player experience, weak main story, underwhelming gunplay, but entertaining cooperative and PvP content. Unfortunately, that good stuff comes all at the end game and you'll have to dredge through the 5-7 hour story to get there.

    Destiny 2 plays like a cross between Borderlands and Halo. It's a story driven shooter with repetitive level design, samey reskin enemies, and randomized loot. As you progress through the game, you'll travel freely between different planets in the solar system. Each location has an open world area with public events and side quests. When you start a story mission in these areas, it's instanced. When you reach level 20 (max level), you'll return to these same areas to complete daily and weekly activities and challenges for randomize loot rewards. This can all be done cooperatively or solo and none of it presents any real challenge to a seasoned FPS player.

    Player movement and enemy animations/behavior is very similar to Halo. Jumps are long and floaty as if there's low gravity. What's disappointing is character movement doesn't factor into class abilities or combat with one or two rare exceptions. It's simply there to serve as a way to navigate weak platforming sections. Enemies will sometimes juke to the side or drop a shield, but this doesn't increase their threat to the player. It only serves as an annoyance to increase the time it takes to kill them. Most enemies seem to fire the same slow moving energy projectile weapons. While enemy factions are thematically different in appearance, it quickly becomes clear they are just different models for the same type of enemy with similar abilities. Weapons variety seems weak. There's a sufficient variety of weapon types, but not a lot of options within those categories. Many weapons simply feel like reskins of weapons in the same category with no sufficiently differentiating characteristics.

    The story is incredibly weak and predictable. Having not played the original Destiny, I had no grounding for who the main characters were or why I should care. The writing for character dialogue vacillates between self-important melodramatic posturing and hipster tier cringe (I'm looking at you Cayde-6). All I could gather from the story is that Guardians are religious zealots who worship a giant sphere which has visited earth and granted some people magical powers and immortality. In short, the Cabal did nothing wrong.

    End game content and PvP are pretty fun. Strikes are Destiny's version of raids where you and other players go through much more challenging levels and boss fights to get better loot rewards. Revisiting some of the open world story mission areas to do side quests is sometimes entertaining, too. Doing these gives you tokens you give to a local story character for, you guessed it, loot rewards.

    Destiny 2 is not worth full price especially considering there are going to be at least two paid DLC expansions. If all you want is a good coop game with your friends, Destiny 2 isn't a bad choice, but it may not have long term value for you. Don't buy it for the story.

    Content you originally had in the base game, no longer available unless you buy DLC.

    Curso of Osiris DLC was complete garbage, 2 hours of content, and very repetitive because they didn't have time to create any assets, so they just re-used everything over and over.

    Once you play for a few hours, you are locked out of the fun content for the rest of the week.

    У игры есть неоспоримые плюсы: графика, геймплей и потрясающий саундтрек. Правда в этой ложке меда намешали бочку дегтя.
    Игра страдает от отсутствия реиграбельности. Вы пройдете налеты, подеретесь на pvp и все. Карты что там, что там ограничены, новые добавляют ооочень редко и то только из-за того что паршивци с reddit возмущаются.
    Вот тут и кроется главный недостаток - возмущение сообщества. То опыт порежут, то еще что скроют. Создается ощущение что не ты решил поиграть в игру, а тебе дали поиграть после долгих уговоров. Команда Bungie считает что игроки этой игры немногим лучше скота, и отношение к ним соответствующее - как к скоту. Думаете EA сосредоточение зла? Нееет по мнению Bungie у вас вообще нет прав. Нет серьезно у них в правилах прямо написано, что они могут заблокировать ваш акаунт без объяснения причин, и по своему желанию.
    Отвратительно. Никому не советую тратить деньги на игру, поскольку нет никакой гарантии, что вы сможете в нее играть.
