Sep 9, 2014This game is Fantastic. It reminds me of the first Assassins Creed game, not because of gameplay but because of initial flack it receivedThis game is Fantastic. It reminds me of the first Assassins Creed game, not because of gameplay but because of initial flack it received from the gamer community. Will this new IP appeal to every player right off the bat? No, but it will develop a following that will look forward to any materials released later in the series.
This is an excellent shooter, with elements that let me adjust my character to serve my playing style. The class system is good, and maybe with more classes and customization this game could be "Legend". Currently most people are running the same character builds, and it makes it hard for me to have the identity that I want in a game like this.
The loot system is good, and could be better if there were more chests to open up. (Maybe I just can't find them). I can equip the guns I want to have, rather than most shooters where I am limited to a very few types of arms. So this easily beats out the vast majority of Shooters I have played when it comes to playing how I want to. Which is important in a game like this.
Something this game could add to make the experience more personal would be player houses, or pets. This game should be more about individuality.
This game has excellent music, and the voice acting from Dinklage is nice fan service for the nerd community.
The levels can feel repetitive, but if you have ever played an MMO it is not as bad as the vast majority of them. Skyrims dungeons were mostly the same, but that did not stop it from being a great game.
This game feels better when playing with friends, and if you lack friends you can meet people to form sorties or make guilds. Occasionally Solo players will be forced to sortie up around Boss Time, and that can be annoying.
Overall Bungie delivered exactly what they promised, a fresh new IP with great gameplay. We can always ask for more, but that does not prevent this game from being one of the best games of the year.… Expand

But for me personal I can say I'm enjoying it a lot, I've had lots of time to play the game and find all the good and bad. First off this is a very nice looking game, just don't look up close at the textures.The vistas and landscape is where it really shows the lighting and shadows. The game-play is very comparable to Borderlands , It gives you a some what open world to explore and grind over and over for those legendary pieces of gear. Just like Borderlands this game is best played with friends, You can go without but you will free like you are missing out. Destiny gives you a fair amount of missions to complete and repeat over and over, as well as strike missions witch will end in a boss and almost always give you some kind of gear. By the end of the game you are left to basically repeat story/strike missions to complete bounties and hopefully have some kind of super cool gear drop. There is also the crucible (Player Vs Player) that you can play from the just about the start of the game, But is definitely best played at level 20+. Bungie recently released there first raid mission as well called "Vault Of Glass" and with all those things to complete once you hit max level it leaves with with a fair amount to stuff to do. But once you have played the missions to death, are tired of the Crucible and can't get a raid group together you are kind of bored of it all. It's not the feeling you want , luckily Bungie is adding new DLC and Events to keep people playing.
If you are a fan of Borderlands/Diablo or even Halo you will enjoy this game to some extent, but this game is definitely not for everyone and won't be enjoyed by anyone who hates grinding for gear or halo type multiplayer.… Expand

I downloaded the gameThe way i critic things, 5 points gos to how well the game is playable. I would give it a 10 out of 10 if i can play it. I downloaded the game on launch day, and can't play it at all. I contacted psn, and said it was on my side! With Comcast this is on bungies side. I have never played the game yet since it came out. It get the following Error codes: Weasel, Banana. Centipede, Cattle, and finally the most common one to me BEE. I got to the character screen, beat the prologue then from there I get error code Bee, Cattle or Centipede and have to start over. I borrowed my friend's game disc to play and it still doesn't work. I went to my friends house to play it and when I start playing, I get error codes. I even made a new psn account, try borrowing my friends ps3, AND EVEN SET MY PORTS, DMZ MY PS3, GOT A NEW MAC ADDRESS & EVEN BOUGHT A NEW ROUTER FOR GODS SAKE!! Bungie says nope, hmm lets give him error code bee teehee. I'm sorry Bungie but why the hell did you curse me lol xD From What I saw on youtube this game is awesome. I wish I was there to play it.

The lead writer quit a year before release, one of the major composers was fired without cause, and the remaining developers are completely out of touch with their community. The longer you play, the more you realize how small and devoid of content the game is. Almost all of the promises made by the developers have been broken, and it is clear that they do not value the time invested in the game by their players. Do not buy this game.… Expand
