    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 was going to come back after a short while, but the glory of the past was going to the clerk's warehouse...
    It seems difficult to find a game like this in the first-person root shooter genre in the future, but it is incomprehensible from the point of view of a paid user that the purchased content disappears.

They rehashed the same armor pieces/guns with different colors as "new content" and called it a day. They put ZERO effort into designing interesting new mechanics/loot/gameplay elements/maps.

    This game is pretty on the outside(for marketing it's perfect) and disgusting on the inside(once you actually play, it's obviously just a cash grab). The art is beautiful, but why wouldn't it be? That's all you need to sell a game nowadays to people, pretty graphics and good music.

    Obviously if the base game was good, why would anyone buy DLC (thinks bungievision).

    This game could've been great, but money. They decided to re-release Destiny and remove everything good about it. It seems that Bungie looked at how The Sims can release a new game with zero features so that they can sell them later as expansions.

    However Bungie seems to have forgotten that they are not selling their game to teenage girls. They dumbed down every system, they made all the loot the same, they made it so the "casuals" aren't overwhelmed, but are casuals really as stupid as Bungie thinks? I think they aren't.

    Just because your testers are middle-aged men who never played a game in their life, doesn't mean that an average gamer wouldn't be able to figure out how your game works. Even casuals aren't as stupid as this game thinks they are.

    I wish any of this meant anything, but in the end, they made their moneys and they will continue their **** business practices until they run out of people who buy their games/micro-transactions.

    I am never going to buy anything that has the label Bungie/Activision EVER again. Fool me once... I can do without playing your generic ****.

    If the first game was on released today on PC, not a single person would be playing Destiny 2 after finishing the story. That's how empty this game is.

    This game is a total waste of money. Bungie just doesn't care about players. We can always hear from them: "WE'RE GONNA LISTEN, WE'RE GONNAThis game is a total waste of money. Bungie just doesn't care about players. We can always hear from them: "WE'RE GONNA LISTEN, WE'RE GONNA LISTEN", "WE ARE LEARNING A LOT". No. They are ignoring all the feedback from their players, because they think they are right and they treat us like we are stupid.

    Balance in this game doesn't exist. Shotguns, jotunn, shoulder charge, spectral blades etc are ruining all the fun in PVP because they are easy to use. Why do snipers have flinch, because they are easy to use? Look at jotunn and machine guns, they are MUCH easier to use and they have almost 0 flinch! WHY? Because Bungie doesn't care about balance in their own game... If you're masochist, crucible is perfect for you, enjoy!

    ]Updates? Hmmm... One update every 3-4 months? Really Bungie, are you that slow? Btw great job nerfing shotguns in PVP, they are exactly as powerful as they were before, good job. Now we wait another 4 months and they will "nerf" it again! Maybe let's buff the damage and reduce the ammo reserves! Great idea! (no :))

    DLC? Annual Pass? You mean just so much long, tedious grind? Oh yea! That's content for Bungie! When we ask for a grind NOBODY WANTS TIDIOUS GRIND. NOBODY. But you - Bungie, always think about us and give us those long, amazing grinds, and you want us to do stuff and play missions that we played a thousand times already, then we have to get some 200 glowing **** by doing 500 strikes or 1000 public events or jump 50000 times inside of patrol, BECAUSE THAT IS FUN, RIGHT? Amazing work Bungie. Good job again. AND thank you for the best DLC "Grind Armory" btw.

    Bungie don't care about anything in their game. The forge matchmaking is a joke, sleeper nodes are **** enhancement cores are a cancer, op weapons at crucible.

    I can"t belive I paid for this. Its just a big "enjoy the game or f*** you" to all the players.

    If you enjoy that game, good for you! I'm happy that someone can enjoy this. But as long as I stand on this world, being a D2 player with more than 500 hours in the game, I advice you to stay as far as possible from this terrible, terrible game, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, don"t repeat my mistake, if you'd like to have a good, balanced game that you can enjoy playing, then go and buy something else.

    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.
