    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.

    A good jerking party game, with some kind of plot and a little pumping. Not interesting pvp.

    This game was a disapointment. I was hyped and the game was hyped beyond anything realistic and also game magazines or online journals haveThis game was a disapointment. I was hyped and the game was hyped beyond anything realistic and also game magazines or online journals have rated this game very high (88 here). So I expected a game that is keeping you motivated playing it. The story is weak, linear nothing unpredictable any turn. So a 1st grade could have written the story.
    Also the story is the only thing worth playing in this game, then you may have some fun in getting to highest power level. Thats it then - you are done and nothing left over to do anymore. The loot shooter or in more generic looter concept has been hidden behind paywall and does not make any sense in a looter. You want to find loot and feel rewarded for the grinding. However the game modes does not support this. You do not get anything rewarding from strikes or from PVP or from Raids. So why bother playing it and grinding over the same mission again and again and again? It is just booring and you simply do not get all the outfits and loot and weapon increase you would expect from a looter. So that is where the whole game fails.
    Bungy does make the same mistakes again, that has been done with Diablo3 in the early years - trying to get money out of a looter by putting the main principle within a real money store. That does not work, cause there is no reason to play it anymore.

    Beyond that, ethically questionable to put more then 50% of all items behind a paywall within full price game with DLCs . Also limiting the possiblity to get this items for free in a looter does not make any sense and is pure greed.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Patético, en la línea de Blizzard y Bungie en los últimos años. Juego malo, repetitivo, carente de contenido, CARISIMO, aburrido, con micro-pagos, con mil expansiones cada 2 meses para sacar las perras. Lleva apenas 2 meses en el mercado y ya tiene una expansión con sus 20 eurazos. Cogéos los machos.

    No lo compréis, es BASURA. Que se hunda Blizzard y su codicia.
