    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.

    대체재가 없다지만 심한 부분은 정말 이래도 되나 싶을 정도로 망가져있는 작품. 하나밖에 없는 루트슈터 MMOFPS라지만 다르게 생각하면 여지껏 유일하게 살아남았다는것만으로도 그 완성도만큼은 인정해야될듯.대체재가 없다지만 심한 부분은 정말 이래도 되나 싶을 정도로 망가져있는 작품. 하나밖에 없는 루트슈터 MMOFPS라지만 다르게 생각하면 여지껏 유일하게 살아남았다는것만으로도 그 완성도만큼은 인정해야될듯.

For the love of god, do yourself a favor and read the User Scores first before you consider buying this game.

    My biggest problem with Destiny 2 is CONTENT.
    I've reached what is in essence, the endgame for Destiny 2. It's only been less than 5 days, and I consider myself a casual gamer. For 60 bucks, you earn yourself a remake of Halo, where instead of fighting Elites, grunts, or brutes, you fight robots (sums up a majority of the antagonists) and mutated naked mole rats for 5 days. That alone should flare a red flag that this lack of content is unacceptable by any company. It feels like a half finished game, where the developers hastily threw in elimination side quests on steroids and called it content. The story itself lasts roughly 6 hours or less depending if you skip through all the action packed cut scenes. Once you run through a few "Public Events", you'll see they all follow the same pattern. Protect this. Move over there. Kill this.
    The class and subclass system are over hyped. They are all nearly identical, with differentiating factors being grenades and small stats. The only saving grace for this game is the game play. Again, it essentially feels like a remake of Halo with different lore. Not convinced? Look up Destiny 2 reviews on Youtube by original dedicated Destiny players, and you'll see the same response.
    Lets stop companies from pushing out half ass products.

    What ? 85 ? You must be kidding, what level of corruption is this ?

    The game simply has absolutely no soul. No real social aspect, like the way you need to interact with people is archaic, no real system that I could find to track down people to do raids and so on. And the pvp is such a joke with the hand cannon/controller abuse on the PC, the "auto-assist" or lets just call it what it is auto aim is a complete dump on everyone that plays pvp in the game. I did about 20 games tonight, out of those 20 not a single one was with out mass hand cannon spam and abuse, people simply never miss. And the grindy repetitive feel of the game as you progress and get these power soft locks (Until mostly grp activities are done) just feels like Bungie trying to draw out the game as long as possible. Such a shame, the game looks extremely well, its a master-peace on the eyes, sadly everything else is complete and utter dogshig. I as many here will not play this game again, nor anything else Bungie related, this is a insult on the playerbase.

    I haven't even played this game thanks to battle.net always killing my download and then it just keeps initialising the download but nothing ever happens. No fix I found is helping and the support seems to doesn't even try to help.
