Able to wield immense power, players battle humanity’s enemies and must reclaim that which was lost during the collapse of mankind’s Golden Age. In a story-driven universe, Destiny’s saga unfolds through grand tales and sweeping adventures by immersing gamers in a bold new world filled with cooperative, competitive, public, and social activities, all seamlessly connected. Destiny incorporates Bungie’s trademark grand scope, sci-fi storytelling and adventures with visceral first-person action gaming that takes place in a burgeoning, cinematic universe. Additionally, Destiny delivers a unique social gaming experience to consoles by offering players a connected, living world that they can explore, combined with vibrant social spaces where they can congregate and celebrate achievements, and share remarkable adventures grouped with friends or solo.

    Destiny is a good FPS from Bungie. However, it isn't the definitive fusion between shooter and MMO we expected. Great gunplay, good enemy AI and full of content, but missions can get too repetitive and the endgame needs more variety of objectives.

It's one that's going to evolve and grow over time much like a MMO so its hard to give it a final score. The game wont appeal to everyone, but its far from being as bad as all these low scores suggest. Expect this to be a larger and richer game in the future as the universe expands. Expand

It's a highly fun game and there is still more for me to look forward to. I think a great deal of people giving the game a poor rating bought into the hype surrounding this game. I bet they are still playing it though. Expand

I do like the game however you are basically forced into replaying the game over and over. This is something I am not a fan of, it is rare I will replay a game. I have put a total of 5 days game play in and like many others I found the game far too repetitive. The multi player crucible falls very short of what you would expect with many games being laggy and when you are not lagging yourself you can tell the other players are suffering from lag.

    The game in short was released incomplete and it shows after completing the campaign. The more you play the more the holes show. Not enough content, broken loot system, no in game comms, no looking for group in game. I would recommend giving it a miss if you are undecided. I can not see the 10 year plan for the game working as the start is just not good enough a AAA title it is not.

The enemies are not very challenging and as long as you aren't hip firing the game will guide your reticule towards your enemies head. The AI doesn't seem too advanced for the most part enemies either come straight at you or duck behind cover in both scenarios they die quickly. The atmosphere is almost spooky at times resembling an Alien film and being rushed by half a dozen mutants in the dark is definitely fun. In all so far I'd say the most fun was pressing the right button on the DPad and having a dance off at the tower. Which probably says a lot come to think of it.

    Now the MP. Not only do you have to unlock this feature but you then have to unlock game modes within it as you go. Level 5 Unlocks the first mode but I wouldn't advise going in there at that level unless you want to be destroyed repeatedly by higher level players. As far as the way it plays it's basically halo with mass effect (the original mass effect) powers in a PVP scenario, which isn't a good thing. Heavy weapon drops, campers with high powered weapons a few vehicles and well you've probably played halo before so there's no need to explain.

    Random messages from randoms kids sending requests for you to join their clan people dropping out it's the same old same from Bungie on this one the only difference is you'll need to pay for an XBL subscription to play it and there really isn't a good reason for why that is btw.

It is beautiful and the gameplay is pretty entertaining at first, but it quickly becomes super repetitive. After hours of play you start to realize that the only reason you are playing is so that you can find better gear. You will spend hours replaying the same exact missions over and over in the slim hope that you will find a sweet gun.

    I finally put down the controller when I realized that I was trying to find better gear for multiplayer and realized that I didn't even like playing multiplayer. Back to COD for me, in my mind the only multiplayer FPS worth playing.
