    Videogame worlds are rarely this rich and addictive. No matter your pleasure - story-based campaigning, co-op comradeship, or adversarial annihilation - Destiny delivers on all fronts. Frighteningly, this really does have the framework of a 10 year obsession. [Nov 2014, p.68]

    Even with its stumbles, the initial release of Destiny is a colossal achievement in interactive design, integrating a number of differing genre elements into a smart and unified whole. Bungie’s latest futuristic opus is one of the first true event games of this new generation, and while it still has room to grow, it’s worth your attention right out of the gate.

    Destiny suffers from a serious case of rough edges. A number of elements, from the repetitive mission design to a weak early game, are a lot rougher than expected from an otherwise polished game. There isn't one glaring problem that detracts from the experience, but a number of minor issues hurt the game. Beneath those flaws lies an extremely enjoyable MMO-styled shooter that plays excellently, looks great, is extremely addictive, and has a strong and varied endgame.

    Destiny, isn’t just set in space, it an allegory of space. It is beautiful and fascinating, but oh so cold and immense, and the past engulfs everything.

    If you just accept that it was always going to be about multiplayer shooting, and the rest might be underdeveloped gravy; you’ll probably have tons of fun. And if you look to the future and see what Bungie has created – a very solid foundation – you should be excited by what the team will deliver in the coming months and years.

    You won't find better gunplay and online features out there, but at the same time you wont find much to do in this huge project that seems to need tons of new and better content, improved writing and some of the "magic" Bungie failed to include in the initial package.

    In its current state, Destiny feels unfinished and unfocused, but I imagine that things will be looking quite different in a year's time.

The thing I liked about Titanfall back when it came out was the level of freedom of movement it gave you with the double-jumping and wall-running and everything after that felt lacking but at the same time Titanfall had a twitch shooting style that I can't get into for some reason. Destiny from a competitive multiplayer perspective has that freedom of movement, although in a slightly different form, but it also has a shooting style that still feel like halo in such a way that I can get into it and have fun.

    I also love the strikes and how they are set up such that you can jump into one with two other random people and have fun. just about the only thing I wish it had was more strikes.

It doesn't add anything new really, it instead adds things from different games and combines them in a sleek and fantastic way. It doesnt do anything new but what it does do is excellent Expand

    Firstly let me say that this is not Halo for PS4, it may be my the same team but it's missing that extra special something that the originalFirstly let me say that this is not Halo for PS4, it may be my the same team but it's missing that extra special something that the original Halo had in Floods (get it? *sigh*).

    The solo campaign is long, over uses the same maps and is as dull as a very dull thing that was left on the shelf of Dull R Us. Saying that however it does have it's moments as a multiplayer game. Not the online deathmatch kind but the 'let's sit and play the story together with a mate' kind of multiplayer.

    Forget the online matches, it's poorly matched to players of equal skills and as much fun as CoD (not fun at all).

    It looks very nice indeed on the PS4, and the controls and handling are spot on. I can't fault that side of the games development at all. I cannot attest to the games longevity at this point but in small short burts it does have it's moments.

    So grab a friend, play together, loot together and have fun together.

Enemies are all mindless walking turrets with varying amounts of HP. Missions are repetitive. The "open world" is sparse. No NPCs. No random events. This game is essentially an FPS with all of the worst elements of MMOs thrown in...5/10. Expand
