    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.

I love it! I bit like division but first person/scifi/fantasy/post apocalyptic.

    I use discord and other things and have not been banned, that's BS. Devs even admit it, there just blocked from working in game. Also, the low reviews just seem like salty gamers wanting things perfect in their own terms. If you want a game warranted of these zeros, see the new SW Battlefront. I dig destiny 2, a lot.

    Destiny 2 is fun at first, but most of the characters are bland, the side missions are a grind fest, and the only real fun is in the main story.

    У игры есть неоспоримые плюсы: графика, геймплей и потрясающий саундтрек. Правда в этой ложке меда намешали бочку дегтя.
    Игра страдает от отсутствия реиграбельности. Вы пройдете налеты, подеретесь на pvp и все. Карты что там, что там ограничены, новые добавляют ооочень редко и то только из-за того что паршивци с reddit возмущаются.
    Вот тут и кроется главный недостаток - возмущение сообщества. То опыт порежут, то еще что скроют. Создается ощущение что не ты решил поиграть в игру, а тебе дали поиграть после долгих уговоров. Команда Bungie считает что игроки этой игры немногим лучше скота, и отношение к ним соответствующее - как к скоту. Думаете EA сосредоточение зла? Нееет по мнению Bungie у вас вообще нет прав. Нет серьезно у них в правилах прямо написано, что они могут заблокировать ваш акаунт без объяснения причин, и по своему желанию.
    Отвратительно. Никому не советую тратить деньги на игру, поскольку нет никакой гарантии, что вы сможете в нее играть.
