    Destiny 2 - Expansion I - Curse of Osiris is a good addition to the Destiny 2 package. It brings a lot of grind to the players, but the rewards are nice and intriguing. It adds more depth and fun to the PvP portion of the game, which I think needed it, and provides some new strikes to keep the fun moving forward. I hope in the coming months with the coming changes to the game that there is more added to this first expansion, but as it stands it is worthy of your time and money.

    Despite what may seem like an overly negative review, I have to admit I’ve had a great time playing through The Curse of Osiris multiple times with different characters.

    The Curse of Osiris is overall OK as a DLC. The new Vex weapons are really flashy, although Mercury is quite a small planet. Knowing more about such relevant Guardians as Osiris and Saint-14 is really interesting, and the new Raid will give you several headaches. We hope that the second DLC doesn't cut content for those who decide not to buy it.

    With so little actual new content on display here and a story that ends up being little more than a fart in the wind in terms of the Destiny mythology, there’s little to recommend here even for players desperate for reasons to jump back into the game.

    Far from fixing some of the endgame problems with Destiny 2, Curse of Osiris gave us a disappointing campaign, brief contents and mediocre activities.

    A pretty disappointing piece of DLC. We hope that Bungie will learn the lesson and make a better game in the future.

    Unless you’ve already bought this as part of a season pass, don’t waste your money on Curse of Osiris until Bungie actually changes direction, and I’m not talking about executing their proposed changes which painfully miss the mark yet again. The base game of Destiny 2 is a great shooter for 50-60 hours of solid content on your first play through of a redemptive story. But there is no endgame to keep going beyond that and there isn’t anything packaged into this DLC than enhances that initial experience. At this point, if you’re desperate for a looter/shooter then either fire up Destiny 1 again, watch Anthem videos on YouTube and hope for a brighter Q4 2018, or else maybe go give the Division a chance. It had a dumpster fire launch but can be had on the cheap now and I hear it’s become a very good game in its current state.

    Man we got Conned... Again..

    The game is Beautifully set, the Mercury map is absolutely stunning. However the campaign is terribly short (1hour 45minutes), poor final boss fight with really no challenge, Story explains basically nothing about Osiris or why we should really give a damn because they don't develop his character enough in this story, Bungie said they would focus on the Vex and Ikora more. They partially did. However I learned nothing I didn't already know about the Vex in the campaign, and Ikora isn't any more likable than before, they tried to make her funny but it didn't work she's still very dry. This was called the Warlock expansion.. We didn't get to learn anything about where warlocks got their powers... and where are the giant Black Triangle ships we saw at the end of Destiny 2's campaign? Is that gonna be the next DLC? I sure hope so cause that certainly sounds better. If you don't wanna waste $20, save yourself the money and wait for the next DLC cause you've really missed nothing. Think you'll get your moneys worth watching someone on Youtube Play the campaign. It'll only take as long as an average Movie, and with the $20 you saved you could actually got to a Cinema and enjoy yourself. 4/10 (Great Setting, that Bungie once again did nothing with)

    Its the most underwhelming DLC that I have ever played for a $20 price. Zero story and character development, stupid dialogs that addedIts the most underwhelming DLC that I have ever played for a $20 price. Zero story and character development, stupid dialogs that added nothing to the lore but one single new boss that potentially be a raid boss, other than that its the same enemies (with a new skin! WOW!).

    No life improvements, boring grind and no weapons/armor to fight for!

    Foolish enough I bought the season pass, and that's how far I will go with this game. Do not buy this game until they have a "The Taken King" revelation and add great life improvements to the game, if not don0t even bother. $100 to the trash.

    Not nearly enough content to justify the price. Vanilla D2 has so many issues that I would have paid for simple tweaks and fixes before INot nearly enough content to justify the price. Vanilla D2 has so many issues that I would have paid for simple tweaks and fixes before I paid for 3 hours of additional content. The visuals on Mercury are amazing, however... just wish there was more to do, and that Bungie focused less on microtransaction monetization and more on core gameplay (especially fixing the extremely flat PvP experience), QoL issues (vault space an issue after 4 years?), and proper end-game progression.

    Underwhelming, disappointing, EA'esk - the type of content update you would expect from a Free-To-Play game.

    Easily the most shallow, empty, hyped LIE of a DLC I have ever had the misfortune of wasting my money on.

    For $50 (AUD) you will get about 60 minutes of gameplay (yes, most people say 2 hours, but honestly, MOST of that 2 hours is spent in loading screens.), some reskinned guns & a feeling of regret.

    I'm not annoyed, I got a few hours of fun out of Destiny 2 with my mates, but honestly, this whole game is borderline scam, borderline No Man's Sky. Bungo have phoned in this entire game &this DLC is nothing but a cash-grab.

    If you play games solely for music or art-styles, 100% grab it.

    But if you play games for a challenge, problem solving, progression, engaging PvP, engaging PvE, story telling, collecting, grinding or just sitting back to blow some things up with inventive, powerful weapons. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME OR DLC.

    You WILL regret it, you WILL feel bad & you SHOULD feel bad.

    Literally made an account just to post this honest feedback about this DLC / game.

    Well, I understood why D2 was made instead of D1 got new DLC. And I was admiring how smart they disconnect D2 and D1 the way they did.Well, I understood why D2 was made instead of D1 got new DLC. And I was admiring how smart they disconnect D2 and D1 the way they did.

    Turns out. D2 is BS.
    PVP terrible.
    PVE I felt im weak than ever.
    No east egg or any lure based collection fun.
    Everyone holding same gun.

    Cya bungie.

Intrigue, suspense, the universe at risk! These hooks were took place amongst beautiful set pieces in a new area. Just as I got settled, ready for more ... it was over. I found this to be really disappointing, especially as half of the missions took place in areas from the main game (iirc 4 in total, 2 on Mercury, 2 on planets from the core game). Due to the fact that one of my primary complaints about the core game is that the campaign was too short, this paid for DLC added pretty much absolutely nothing.

    In addition to this, there are only a few more adventures, and only one Public Event on Mercury, which is tiny. Furthermore, for players who don't buy the DLC, they are locked out of a lot of content they had access to during the core game. It's an absolute travesty.

    This is all surrounded by the fact that the content added to the ingame microtransaction store, Eververse, is huge, which shows what Bungie is really all about.

    I'm a first time, and last time, Destiny player. Never buying another Bungie game again after this.
