Destiny 2 is an epic: a story with an ever expanding scale made greater by the heroes of whom the story is told with tragedy, struggle, and redemption. It is very fitting that the score to accompany it must be, too. And it is. There were moments that I had to put the controller down and simply listen, taking in the scope of what I was experiencing.
Lessons were learnt and learnt well. The looming Darkness has not consumed Bungie at this point in time. Quite the contrary. Destiny 2 is the glorious self-rez fans have been praying for. Stop orbiting it and dive in, today.
There’s a lot to enjoy here both solo and as a co-op experience. Any fan of Destiny 1 should take a look at this game, and anyone that has had interest in it but hasn’t pulled the trigger on it just yet should rest easy knowing that while it has a few issues here and there, Destiny 2 is a great game that champions over the first game in so many ways. I highly suggest it to both FPS and RPG fans alike.
Although Destiny 2 requires quite a lot of grinding, the whole process doesn't really feel like a chore since there are so many varied activities that you'll rarely do the same thing twice in a month (unless it's a weekly activity, or you really want to). First and foremost, Destiny 2 does not frustrate players by placing parts of the end game under hard to achieve power level requirements. There's plenty of loot to gain and, more importantly, you're actually having fun while obtaining it.
The story and gameplay mechanics have greatly improved, and it sports many graphical upgrades. It's unfortunate that the enemy AI isn't more challenging, but for this franchise, the fun will always come from the end-game content. As long as players understand and accept that, they should snap up this sequel and prepare for another long adventure.
Even if Bungie backtracks on some of these horrendous missteps, there’s evidence that the dev team is either flailing around without a clear idea of the experience they want to present, or even worse, they’re happy to offer the least amount of mediocre content possible until the player base starts pushing back. When free-to-play titles like Warframe and Let it Die seem monumentally more generous and offer vastly more entertainment value than a triple-A sixty dollar release built with a budget large enough to feed whole continents, it’s clear that something has gone horribly wrong.
This game is a masterpiece, the best in its genre. Beautiful graphics, mechanics, very good extras. I've never played a better game. The creators of Destiny, Bungie studio is a very talented team, and under sony it will only spread its wings. A wonderful takeover, halo can hide. Microsoft, your punishment is not final. Kind Regards, Stinky
Used to enjoy playing Destiny (1 & then 2) daily, until I had a break from it. More important things got in the way than gaming.
Coming back to it was a costly nightmare of PlayStation Plus subs, 2 expensive DLC addons and grinding just to catch up with my old team.
Destiny is only value for money for enthusiasts who have plenty of time at disposal for one particular game and a couple of friends who play it also.
I’ve abandoned now it but had great memories playing it.
Ok if you haven't burned out on the looter-shooter-FPS-RPG genre, but be warned... you must buy expansions or else you can not accurately level past certain points in the game, and every time there is an expansion it's over in about 6 hours.
