    Destiny 2 Bastion of Shadows is like coming home: it's played like always and it's very, very fun, but with the new armor and weapon systems, Bungie manages to create a deeper system, and the seasons promise to entertain us for a long time. It's not as big as expected, but it's a good start of Bungie flying by themselves.

    Shadowkeep sounds like a love letter to the fans. Lots of plot revelations, a beautiful moon to explore and many new challenges, this expansion has many qualities, despite a very short campaign.

    Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is the first strong opportunity for Bungie to spread their wings and give us the experience it wanted to from the beginning. Returning to the Moon is a blast, and the narrative for Shadowkeep’s campaign is interesting and engaging, setting up for something truly epic in the future. The core gameplay isn’t exactly reinvented and it doesn’t need to be. Shadowkeep offers just enough new content to keep us satisfied until the next update and there are plenty of secrets to uncover. With cross-save, all new gear, revamped armor, and the finishing blows added to what was already a solid shooter, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is a worthwhile successor to the Forsaken update and a genuine treat for anyone who loves shooters.

    The hive are a bit spikier and the buildings are covered in Fallen graffiti, and it has to be said that the Moon is more decrepit and crumbling and new areas have been added, but when it comes down to it things are not so much new as buffed up and rolled in a bit of glitter.

    Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is a big step in the right direction for Destiny, even when it feels like the first chapter in a larger story and subjects you to a brutal grind.

    The humanisation of Eris Morn, a once bleak caricature shrouded in mystique, along with a number of brave narrative turns help Shadowkeep along to a thrilling conclusion that sets Destiny up for another year to come. Though the core tweaks haven't all landed, Shadowkeep takes a beatseat to only two before it in terms of delivering rounded, high-quality expansion experience.

    Destiny 2: Shadowkeep elevates the gameplay, but falters on a storytelling front.

    The lore of the series is confused at best, but Shadowkeep does an excellent job at presenting a simple problem, the Darkness is coming, and getting you interested in seeing what the outcome will be.

    Destiny 2 is still easily one of the best shooters on Xbox One. Taken as a whole, its eclectic blend of strikes, night-devouring raids, and exhilarating PvP action outguns most of the competition with ease. As for Shadowkeep, despite some welcome additions, its reheated campaign reeks of a rush job that needed a bit more cooking time. [Issue#184, p.88]

    Shadowkeep impressed me much less than Forsaken. I hoped that after parting ways with Activision Blizzard Bungie will be more ambitious than to mostly recycle the content we already know. [12/2019, p.76]

    The new gameplay feels much better and the story finally is building up to the bigger story that the destiny universe holds. To those sayingThe new gameplay feels much better and the story finally is building up to the bigger story that the destiny universe holds. To those saying the story sucks, I want to say that the story of this year is too large to be told in one campaign. This story will span the entirety of this year and probably for the rest of destiny 2 Full Review »

    Same old regurgitated pve full of bugs and pvp is horrible. No logic to matchmaking whatsoever. Pvp is a joke and total waste of time.Same old regurgitated pve full of bugs and pvp is horrible. No logic to matchmaking whatsoever. Pvp is a joke and total waste of time. They should be ashamed and embarrassed. Bungie has turned out to be one of the greediest developers ever. Players are continually used as beta testers, virtually every aspect of the game is bugged. Launch was horrible. This game should have been included with the previous release which should have been included in the previous before that. Literally the same bugs as season 1 two years later. If you have purchased every aspect of the game you’ve paid $200 and it’s not worth $10. The only ppl who like it are hardcore fans of the series. This game can not hold a candle to better developed games. Don’t waste your money and stay away from this toxic franchise and community Full Review »
