Ultimately, however essential we say this update is, it’s only relevant if you’re a Destiny sceptic and haven’t already upgraded. If this is you, pick it up – the price is steep but there’s a huge amount of content here, plus you won’t fall too far behind. If you’re a new player, thanks to this update this is now one of the best ‘shared-world’ experiences out there – one that you’ll find hard to put down due to its stellar FPS mechanics, enormous scope and undeniable progression.
A huge improvement on the Destiny that we got at launch, The Taken King is finally the Destiny that people expected. A boost to the story, as well as new sub-classes for each class, new missions and new raids, everything about The Taken King expands and improves on the lackluster original Destiny adventure.
The voice acting, particularly from Nathan Fillion, is much more charismatic and has much more energy than in the original 'story'. Though still not particularly fantastic, the story added by The Taken King is solid and provides incentive to keep playing on and on. The gameplay is still as flawless as ever, and the levelling system is much simpler now the better equipment you have will dictate how high your level is.
The lack of matchmaking when it comes to raids is still baffling. Raids are the best part of Destiny, and will provide a much more purposeful end game for everyone if matchmaking was there. In fact, the end game content is the only thing preventing The Taken King from getting higher than a 7.
All in all though, a huge improvement, with even more potential.
Not your same old boring Call of Duty game. So if you're looking for something like COD this is not it. By the makers of Halo This feels "KINDA" Halo-ish. Gun play is great, supers feel great "superpowers" (if you're looking for something thats more based in "reality" this is not for you at all.) This is a Sci-fi, Fantasy, MOBA-Lite. The BIG problem is the story very open ended and not very detailed. Another problem is the repetitiveness of the game play you'll be playing the same missions over and over just to level up. You almost have to play with friends to get the full experience of this game. I had tons of fun because i really didn't care about the story (i don't play games for story) and I had friends who played the game. And i'm a **** for leveling things up. (From pokemon to RPG characters) I gave it a 7 because I know not everyone can get over those flaws.
I got this game for free at Best Buy, and was the WORST GAMES I'VE EVER PLAYED, even that i didn't payed for it, so bad, boring gameplay, borring story, even if you play with friend will be annoyed by it.
overall, decent game. I got everything for 75 USD, a good deal. And I GRINDED and grinded till I was lvl 40 light 260. Then I hit a wall, I couldn't get better because the next raids were too hard and the previous didnt give enough loot. so then I grinded, (i know, I did lots of grinding, thats what this game is about) Then the reason I quit, was because I went to ZUR, and I spent so much time getting those strange coins, and I got a random exotic heavy gun, I got a gallahorn, hurrayyy, if it wasnt year 2. That thiing only had 175 damage. After I saw the damage and then read it again, I closed the game and played everything but destiny. I liked the game but it is going downhill.
SummaryTo battle the Darkness and the Taken army, players get brand new subclasses with new supers. Warlocks now harness the power of an electric storm, Hunters carve a bow formed from gravitational void energy, and Titans summon a flaming hammer that can sear their adversaries from a range or deliver a devastating melee impact.
