    PC is without a doubt the definitive way to play Destiny 2, if you have a system that can handle what the game demands of it. Now that the game has launched across the board, updates and new content will be available on all platforms at once, so PC players don’t have to worry about being left behind. As long as Bungie continues to support the game and ensure that the PC community isn’t ignored in favor of the PS4 or the Xbox One family of systems, Destiny 2 is a game that I will be playing religiously for years to come.

    Though it is held back by a severe lack of social options and PC-specific sandbox tuning, Destiny 2 on PC looks and feels like the best version of one of the best games of 2017.

    The PC version of Destiny 2 replicates the amazing gunplay the first game is known for. The visuals are gorgeous and the environments are so expansive that there is hours worth of exploring to be done. There is a huge amount of content to keep players entertained and almost all of it can be replayed with worthwhile rewards to be gained. This title lives up to its predecessor and has surpassed it in almost every way. For those looking for a casual shooter with a great story or for those who want to challenge themselves in raids and competitive PVP, this title caters to a wide audience making it a great experience all-round.

    Destiny 2 is an excellent game on consoles, but this is the best version.

    A co-op FPS by nature, by being structured and marketed as MMO, Destiny 2 unavoidably gets compared to games from both genres. Its MMO side is simply insufficient due to the lack of content. If Bungie could adopt the subscription model, this game would have simply been just an expansion of the first one, as they are as close to each other as World of Warcraft expansions are to each other. However from the FPS standpoint, Destiny 2 is ticking many boxes. It is correct in its core mechanisms, it has juicy gameplay and it is a worthwhile title that should have been a bit more ambitious with its design.

    PC gamers needn’t worry they missed the first game, as the superior sequel’s endless loops of addiction feel far more honest and rewarding than the flawed original.

    All the elements are there: you’re gunning down massive hordes of baddies and you’re doing so with outstanding visual fidelity, a variety of weapons, and you’re able to cause this mayhem using big, explosive abilities. But, a bit too much of Destiny 2’s action is watered down by long cooldowns, the lazy sit-behind-cover until you’re full-health again, and the way enemies completely lose their ability to aim once your health hits the blinky-red portion of the on-screen life bar. The stakes always seem so low, the rewards so random and barely earned. It’s not a bad game, but it’s not one that lives up to the lofty expectations set by the way it’s marketed and talked about by its fans. Miles wide, but an inch deep: Destiny 2 is not the game it should be.

    An absolutely mediocre experience for such a hyped-up game. Optimization is terrible, unless you have 970-980-1070-1080. The only thing thatAn absolutely mediocre experience for such a hyped-up game. Optimization is terrible, unless you have 970-980-1070-1080. The only thing that makes this game somewhat unique is what a ***storm of effects it is. Explosions, particles, pieces of rocks flying around... am I in a Michael Bay movie? Also, you cannot lower the effects settings if you experience huge framerate drops. Gameplay is a snooze-fest, Crucible is flawed and boring as well. Graphics are okay, nothing changed since D1 though. The color filter is gray and boring, nothing stands out that much. The only difference between console and PC version of D2 is framerate and m/k instead of a controller. Overall, from a visual/gameplay standpoint, it's spectacularly mediocre, but still not worth even a 5/10. Expand

Besides that there's a heavy dose of micro transactions, very little content and somehow it feels even more bland than the first Destiny. This is a game devoid of any passion for the medium, a cynical, uninspired cash grab that should be avoided at all costs. Expand

    Allow me to build this turd sandwich for you one layer at a time, like Bungie did:

    *Broken on release *Nothing fixed in subsequent 2 years
    Allow me to build this turd sandwich for you one layer at a time, like Bungie did:

    *Broken on release
    *Nothing fixed in subsequent 2 years
    *Constant barrage of MTX
    *Pay to win PVP (your level is locked to a lower one if you don't pay $60USD/year)
    *Almost no appreciable content till very recently and even then it costs more than AAA pricing
    *Launched on steam without enough servers for 1/4 the playerbase
    *No support whatsoever offered for any Bungie title or product
    *Game is currently unplayable for over 60% of the playerbase with up to 30% unable to access their saved games

    Just avoid this mess. Bungie IS activision these days, just without the QA budget.

    The beginning of the game is great. Very fun, despite server disconnects. Must port forward. Then black screens replace cut scenes. MustThe beginning of the game is great. Very fun, despite server disconnects. Must port forward. Then black screens replace cut scenes. Must restart. Until Titan. Black screen replaced with map and screen frozen. Rest of game inaccessible. Bungie support site general recommendations don't work. They say they can't offer support. They should say they "won't". Online searches yield no solution. Only redeeming fact is I bought only the base game and on sale. No more Bungie for me. Expand
