    With the release of The Witch Queen, Bungie has taken Destiny 2 several steps in the right direction. The length of the campaign is nearly perfect and when coupled with higher difficulties as well as replayable campaign missions, Destiny 2: The Witch Queen delivers a stunning experience of rewarding gameplay that values a player’s time investment within it. All of that would be incredible on its own, but these are backed by incredibly well-developed stories and mysteries that have yet to be uncovered. It is a truly awesome thing to be a witness to!

    Challenges Forsaken for the title of best-ever Destiny expansion, and has much stronger foundations to build upon. Destiny 2 was already in a good spot, but Witch Queen represents a new peak for Bungie's oft-imitated, never-dethroned looter shooter.

    The Witch Queen is a masterful expansion. An almost totally perfect symphony played by an orchestra that seems to have finally found an optimal direction. Destiny 2 fans have something to rejoice, but above all to play, as the approach to Lightfall has just begun and we can't wait to find out what will be hiding in the upcoming seasons.

    There's still work to be done on the game at large, but The Witch Queen is a massive step in the right direction. The campaign alone is worth the price of admission.

    Just as The Taken King was the Destiny ‘version two’ relaunch the game so sorely needed, The Witch Queen boldly elevates Destiny 2 into a richer space fantasy. Without taking any risks beyond giving players more options in how they build their Guardians and wreak havoc, Bungie has iterated what may safely be Destiny 2’s best year yet. Until Bungie gives players significant new additions of enemies and characters, Destiny 2 may have peaked for now.

    I am both impressed and happy with Destiny 2: The Witch Queen. A lot of the content is very good, and there are also some moves being made that make me excited for the future of this game.

    This is a good expansion, a solid foundation for the next year of updates, and a lousy place for newcomers to start. [Issue#370, p.108]

    I quit destiny after Beyond Light because of how painfully average it was.

    My friend ended up peer pressuring me into buying Witch Queen and I must say. The story in the Witch Queen rivals that of Halo Reach from 2010. I haven't seen story telling like this from Bungie in ANY OTHER destiny expansion. It blows the Taken King and Forsaken stories out of the water.

    The missions and side content is also FINALLY not a total drag. Everything you do has meaning and is engaging in some way.

    데스티니는 매번 실망을 줬고
    쉐도우킵, 빛의저편에서 보여준 가능성은 데스티니 프랜차이즈가 이제는 몰락하고 있다는 것을 보여주고 있었다. 마녀여왕은 기대감과 불안감속에서 출시되었고, 그 결과는 7년동안 이뤄냈던것보다 단계가 올라가는 느낌까지 주게 되었다. 헤일로에서 보여줬던 겜플레이 및 스토리 구성을 드디어 데스티니 시리즈만의 것으로 만드는 것이 성공했다. 전설 캠페인은 불합리한 도전정신보다는 다크소울하고 같은 결에 익숙해지고 도전적으로 플레이어을 이끌게 해주었다. 심안 시스템을 그렇게 좋아하진 않지만 캠페인 자체에 템포는 마치 레이싱카를 타듯이 진행되었고, 로어로만 이야기를 풀면 번지는 직접적인 스토리텔링까지 이제는 선보일 수 있게 되었다. 그리워하던 테이큰킹은 이제 떠났다. 이제는 마녀여왕이라는 확팩이 새로운 토대가 되어 데스티니 시리즈를 빛내줄 수 있다고 생각한다. 아직 만듬새가 부족하고 버그도 있는 부분이 있지만 데스티니는 원래 이렇지 않나

    This is an amazing game, the new witch queen campaign is jacked and the new legendary campaign is great for hardcore players like me. I amThis is an amazing game, the new witch queen campaign is jacked and the new legendary campaign is great for hardcore players like me. I am amazed by the way they have picked up weapons and brought them back from the dead. PVP is a much better experience now that op weapons have been nerfed though the last word remains. Pvp is going to get much better now that Bungie is giving PVP some love. I can trust Bungie they have always lived up to the hype in recent times and have never fallen back on a promise, ever since the darkness of Activision destiny 2 has expanded and embraced the MMO RPG genre. now weapon crafting is so smooth and balanced it's amazing. good job Bungie Expand

    Absolutely amazing content . Feels short but when you consider the additional content besides the campaign it's really not. Crafting is wellAbsolutely amazing content . Feels short but when you consider the additional content besides the campaign it's really not. Crafting is well introduced, and easy to understand. A welcomed feature. It forces you to try out new guns which was the objective and not just stick to one. Additional dungeons have a raid feel to them and are longer and satisfying. All in all great new fresh content . Long live destiny Expand

    Que devuelvan las expansiones que han robado a la gente. Lo de Bungie es un atraco en toda regla.
