    Destiny 2 is an epic: a story with an ever expanding scale made greater by the heroes of whom the story is told with tragedy, struggle, and redemption. It is very fitting that the score to accompany it must be, too. And it is. There were moments that I had to put the controller down and simply listen, taking in the scope of what I was experiencing.

    Destiny 2 is a perfect evolution of the original´s concept. Campaign is solid and full of CG sequences, the new activities, progression system and raid complete a unique experience between FPS and MMO. And Bungie brings the best gunplay back.

    Destiny 2 is a massive and rewarding game that offers the potential for hundreds of hours of fun and discovery with friends. Quibbles aside, Bungie has crafted a fantastic follow-up to a wildly popular formula, and one that no other developer has come close to equaling in sophistication. Many of the streamlining choices welcome a new crop of Guardians into the mix, but also make this new game more playable and understandable for even returning players. As I settle in for what I hope to be another several years of adventures, I hope Bungie can nail the elusive balance between depth and accessibility.

    There’s a lot to enjoy here both solo and as a co-op experience. Any fan of Destiny 1 should take a look at this game, and anyone that has had interest in it but hasn’t pulled the trigger on it just yet should rest easy knowing that while it has a few issues here and there, Destiny 2 is a great game that champions over the first game in so many ways. I highly suggest it to both FPS and RPG fans alike.

    For the more casual - OK, more sane - player, however, Destiny 2 is almost a triumph. It is a game much better at explaining itself, that wants to be enjoyed and understood, and is happy to reward players for simply being there. [Dec 2017, p.102]

    Destiny 2 isn't perfect, and I hesitate to recommend it for solo players, but for anyone that hopes to play in a group - there really is nothing else like it. I can't say if there's enough new here to draw returning players to the game, but Bungie has done nothing if not craft one of the most beautiful engaging co-op experiences of 2017.

    Even if Bungie backtracks on some of these horrendous missteps, there’s evidence that the dev team is either flailing around without a clear idea of the experience they want to present, or even worse, they’re happy to offer the least amount of mediocre content possible until the player base starts pushing back. When free-to-play titles like Warframe and Let it Die seem monumentally more generous and offer vastly more entertainment value than a triple-A sixty dollar release built with a budget large enough to feed whole continents, it’s clear that something has gone horribly wrong.

Im unbiased, just a guy who bought it off the shelf and started to play the game. So I am now at Lv20, light level 210, and I have to say, the game is bloody brilliant.

    The thing about Destiny is a lot of people were burned by the first game. The first game was indeed average, but it does not mean this one is as well. Give it a chance, and come to your own conclusion.

    I play a lot of games, and honestly, Destiny 2 is one of those rare games that I think about when I am not playing. The trolls describe this as a dlc, but if you think back to Taken King, you got around 4 main missions and a few extras, such as a new raid, and a few other items. This game is a full blown, completed experience. 4 brand new planets, great campaign, strikes, raids, crucible, adventures, lost sectors, high value targets, patrols...you would never get all that in a dlc. ever. Unless you are CD Project Red.

    Campaign is great. Opening mission is phenomenal, including your rise to power again after the fall. The final few missions are also unbelievable. The middle parts of the campaign are great too but don't quite reach the heights of those bookmarks.

    Oh and the soundtrack. Listen to 'Journey' on Youtube and tell me thats not epic.

    Go home trolls. You lose this time. Buy the game.

However, the little improvement they made is ruined by the fact that they added micro transactions to a full priced game that's going to have paid DLC in the future, thus ruining the point of playing.

    I am writing a review based off of the beta and Bungie's pricing strategy... C'mon Bungie... get with the program. I was a huge fan whenI am writing a review based off of the beta and Bungie's pricing strategy... C'mon Bungie... get with the program. I was a huge fan when Destiny 1 came out, was imperfect, but new and refreshing. I Played D1 for quite a while, once I got the majority of everything I wanted from raids I would play Trials. But what really urked me the wrong way was you have a ton of micro transactions, along with already charging for DLC... $100!?!? for part of the game now and more later? Yeah right... There is a reason Overwatch got game of the year... Awesome Story, Patches thing regularly !Listens to the damn players!, and Oh! what do ya know? all free DLC! AGAIN GET WITH THE PROGRAM, Paying for the Queens DLC was just a reiskin of quests you already had, Whos brilliant idea was it to say, "Oh! lets take a quest, make all the enemies another color, and sell it as new content!." If you ask me keep micro transactions for people to make their character look cooler, like armor skins and weapon skins, or dope ass emotes, but not engrams. Stop listening to share holders and start listening to the damn players. Overwatch was so good if they make a game about pigs riding ponies in the amazon I will probably buy it because it will have free DLC's and a good story line. Are you taking notes Bungie? Expand
