    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.

    Didn't play D1 on console, so D2 is an completely new experience for me.

    +Great art, backed by a well optimized graphics engine,
    +Simple but solid, fps story, that just works, backed by deep lore,
    +Memorable, well voice acted characters,
    +Comic relief quest givers on 2 planets(a great addition to generally serious tone of the game),
    +Great gunplay.
    +Music

    -Lack of social features(chat), really cripples any form of teaming up,
    -No matchmaking for endgame content/ the guided games take to longto set up,
    -For the repetitive endgame to work it needs to have choosable dificulities, right now the game is too easy for it to be enjoyable.

    Overall a recommended game for someone searching something different on PC. A good blend of PvE + co op and PvP. Usually it's all PvP + forced SP campaign.

    If your like this game and want more The Division from Ubisoft is a similar type of game.

    Based of ~60h of play time.

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.

    Cons:
    Unrealistic copy and paste reloads, unbalanced pvp in all categories, not solo-player friendly, ultra grindy, terrible story line, microtransactions, community is really toxic, upgrading gear is a grind, **** and expensive dlcs, a retarded refund policy, too much grind makes the loot not worth it,forsaken expansion is a joke, and super repetitive gameplay, game devs don't really listen to the community unless everyone **** about it, the graphics aren't that good even if you run SLI with latest GPU(I've tried, RTX 2080Ti)
    P.S: All those **** NPCs that keep talking through this repetitive **** needs to have a option to make them Shut the **** up without turning all the dialogue off
