Average User Score: 5.6Sep 12, 2014I expected so much from Destiny - The adverts, the marketing in general made me feel like I was going to be playing an open world HUGE gameI expected so much from Destiny - The adverts, the marketing in general made me feel like I was going to be playing an open world HUGE game with thousands of objectives.
It falls short of that massively, but didn't disappoint completely - which is why I giving it a hefty 7.
- The game starts with next to no storyline, around 8 hours in (including repetitive side quests) I had no idea what the point in everything was - Cool the darkness is coming, cool im a guardian, so what? What's the point in "the traveller" and the massive orb in the sky that was advertised if nothing really happens there?
- Gameplay is flawless to be fair, variety of guns + AAA feel to the gunplay, just repetitive shooting though, so it can get a little dull.
- Music is perfect, brilliant theme + quality action packed big songs.
- Quests - nothing to do OR repetitive boring gaming, no variety.
- Monsters - predictable, im fighting the same 4 races of mobs, with the same predictable movements.
- WHY IS LVL 20 THE SOFT CAP!? Make it lvl 50 with faster lvl ups - then the game wouldn't be completed in a day - DUDE IM LVL 17 AND IM ONLY ON VENUS!?!?!
Now then - lets see what could be added:
- More open world
- Varied Quests
- More understandable storyline w/memorable characters that pop up
- A MARKET SYSTEM!? HELLO ITS AN "MMO" KIND OF GAME
- More player choices with levelling up
- level system per weapon, maybe stats for mining in the open world etc to sell for money
- more mobs with less predictable movement
- more weapons to tailor the style of game
- balance the multiplayer with loadouts so everyone has a fair shot - i get why they did it the way they did, but it's hardly fair guys...
This is a small review, loads missed out - but definitely a 7/10 - been playing for hourssss so I can't fault it for entertainment, here's to hopefulness on Destiny 2… Expand

This game is absolutely amazing, and will go down in history because 5 yearsYou cannot compare this to fallout, because its nothing like it. This game is absolutely amazing, and will go down in history because 5 years on, it still looks beautiful. The open world it delivers is massive and full, wherever you go there is something, which shows how refined the game is and how much effort was put in, the graphics are amazing for the time and the storyline keeps you captivated. I like how the story takes you all over the world, which makes the RPG even bigger because of movement, and in between walking you stumble across more and more caves or ruins and you HAVE to explore them, it side tracks you so much, you find yourself nowhere near where you wanted and another 5 hours of game play in the bag. There are obviously flaws, i will get onto them later. The AI are one of the best AI in a video game and they respond completely to your presence. I like the character designs too, there has been so much thought put into everything, the amount of things you can be..it makes your character different to your friends, and not many games can deliver that. The sound is absolutely amazing off memory, the music when you are battling through the wilderness is perfect, creating a brilliant mood that you can delve, making you believe you are in the game. The flaws, like i said earlier, is that there isnt many battles with more than one creature, imagine the game with epic battles with more than 20 enemies at once? it would be superb, the greatest...but I think thats down to FPS, the game would not run with masses of enemies attacking at once. It isnt a massive problem, but its something i wouldnt mind in it, because the game is still amazing without it, and its such a minor problem when you look over the entire game. Everything has a unique design which makes you believe you are there. Summing up the game, it is a definite buy, if you dont enjoy this game at all, not even for sound/graphics then you are a fool, this is an amazing game which definitely by-passes Morrowind and shows that the developers (Bethesda) are constantly evolving for the better, one of the greatest games ever. Undoubtedly 10/10. - FlubbaJubba… Expand
Average User Score: 6.5Jun 11, 2011Reviewing this game fairly, it is a brilliant storyline and there is alot to fight, there are never any slow downs and you are always doingReviewing this game fairly, it is a brilliant storyline and there is alot to fight, there are never any slow downs and you are always doing something, the type of enemy you are fighting changes often, which is very good because you never get bored. The combat system works well and there arent many bugs i have come across, the graphics are decent - nothing revolutionary but they work well and deliver whats necessary. Sounding in this game isnt an issue, as its clearly not the greatest there is nothing terrible about sound except for when a werewolf "howls", the standard howl would have made it realistic (as realistic as werewolves are). There are numerous boss battles, some of them are very annoying because of the difficulty, even playing on easy is going to annoy you against a boss as they can hit you 500 times in a second. Back to the story, its a very good story that has never been touched upon, the ideas are all there, its just a shame that a massive budget wasnt set in, if the graphics were peaked, everything perfectly designed and nothing rushed, this game would be amazing...actually amazing, i really enjoyed this game and would recommend it to anyone who doesnt care about the small things, just enjoy a great story line and alot of things to fight. Although its nothing ground breaking, you have to admire what Spark Unlimited did here and play the game for story and shooting Mythical Beasts. A very good game that needed another year in development for extra graphical improvements and better AI… Expand

This game running on xbox just isnt as good, everything runs well but things are dubbed down, i play it on pc on max settings and it is incredible. The online is my favourite part and is definately one to keep gamers playing because there isnt anything thats overpowered as of now, everything is well tuned and the maps are very nice to play/look at. They also removed camping which is an amazing achievement and i hope for it to be displayed in other games in the future… Expand
