Destiny Alpha Impressions

Max Level: Destiny, Bungie’s first venture into game development since their permanent departure from the blockbuster video game franchise, Halo – with 2010′s Halo: Reach being their last entry in the series. Ever since the release of Halo: Reach, Bungie has been hard at work on their new first-person shooter IP, that has the potential to transcend the genre to new heights, heights that Halo couldn't even reach (pun not intended). Since Bungie has made nothing but Halo games since 2001, some gamers feel that the AAA game developer has become too accustomed to producing Halo games, and that it will negatively affect their creativity. After playing the alpha for Destiny, let me be the first to say that you have nothing to worry about. (Bungie, Destiny, PS4)

I hope it improves over the alpha. it was the only part that felt lackluster to me

My friends and I are really looking forward to this game. The only other one where the MP looks even near as awesome is The Division. See you on the inside fellow gamers. :)

Rainbow Six : Siege looks better than both combined.... IMO

I have been having a hard time playing anything else since the Alpha ended.

I'm so ready for Destiny, it was refreshing. And the dude above talking about the PvP, you gotta remember it was only one match type. I didn't find it stale or lackluster. If you didn't play it right and capture/fight for the points than I can see how it could be lackluster. Seemed to focus on teamwork more. You can't just go off and do your own thing.

They should fix the radar though. Like when your crouched or don't shoot they can't see you. I'm pretty sure it shows up when they come near every time.

It was very refreshing, indeed.

The alpha was just the exposure that I needed. I wasn't excited for the game, and I had no interest in doing a pre-order. Truthfully, I didn't really have an opinion formed on the game. Then I got that alpha and now the game is at the very top of my most wanted list.
