    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.

I keep going back to it. It’s always there with new content WEEKLY! Always updating and changing. You can always expect it to cater to gamers. It’s still full of new things that I’ve yet to discover. There is tons of exclusive content that is time sensitive. But overall it’s the community that makes it amazing. Everyone is there to help each other get that BREAD! Expand

    If you came here looking for an actual review or score, then focus on the reviews from the critics and not that of the user reviews. AnyoneIf you came here looking for an actual review or score, then focus on the reviews from the critics and not that of the user reviews. Anyone here that rated below 6, most likely didn't play the game. I mean seriously, how terrible must a game be for it to be below 6? Anyone can watch a quick video on youtube and write about **** that sounds true, by not even playing a single minute. Secondly, I feel some try to make up for all the 0s, so they give it a 10, which it certainly is not. But I can tell you one thing, from someone that has not yet finished the game, this is a massive improvement from D1. There is much more to do, the cutscenes look great and the story is presented in what is expected of a game. As an avid player of D1, my biggest concern, back then, was content. D2 delivers and brings a lot of new to the table. Perhaps what I like most, is the fact that Bungie tried to keep all the fans happy by listening to what they had to say about D1, and improve on that in the new game. If they keep on doing this, the game will just evolve going forward. For me, I am satisfied with the direction it is going. Bungie is planning to keep us, much, much more busy in the months to come and I find that extremely pleasing. The game is great and it is definitely worth a buy! Expand

    I used to be a dedicated Destiny player. I was really looking forward something new but it is a dissapointment. I would consider buying it when they put more content into it next year, maybe.

    Is this a joke?

    Am I in crazy land?

    It's the same DAMN GAME as Destiny 1.

    Yes fans will say - sure of course what did you expect we just want more - but there is zero innovation.

    Dark Souls series is 3 (or 4 if you count demon's souls which you should) brilliant games that all look better over time and introduce so many new tweaks and updates to the core gameplay that it feels like a newish game each time.

    Destiny 2 feels like Destiny 1, looks like it, plays like it, Nothing new, nothing interesting. I'm halfway through the campaign and I'm just pushing forward. It's so easy, such a joke of a game. Please, no more Destiny. $60 gone forever :(((((((

    1 point for cool new dance emotes.
