Yes. For once I think things are well justified.

No, it's a good game but far from Bungie's best work. I'm guessing a lot of the talent in that studio stayed behind and joined with 343i to continue Halo greatness.

Yep! A very well paced game.
So much intrigue :)

I was on PS4 and had a blast, but based on comments here I am wondering if the Betas were different based on platform.

God no and it keeps getting worse

Yeah you can knitpick a few things here and there(like every game) but it was the best BETA I've played in a while.

I'am now buying the game....I don't play much shooters.

Agreed, looking at it purely in Beta form, it was the best Beta I have also played. It did kind of kill my hype for the game overall, though. I got the Beta code from a friend and I will stick with my decision to just rent it via Gamefly and then decide later on for a purchase or not.

I won't lie I had fun with friends but I am extremely worried about the final version. First off the Xbone version had broken party chat and the PS3 had more social options then it (also it was extremely difficult to join friends do to random closed fireteams and joining on the tower was nearly impossible most of the time). Anyways the beta was simply lacking storytelling, no interesting missions and only fetch quests, PvP was awful, the weapons seem to similar (auto rifles were the only guns in the beta with unique variation the others felt the same), and the bosses felt uninspired and lazy. As I said I know it is a beta but I have many doubts for the final product considering this felt like a trial with a locked level cap

Careful that is not popular thought.

LAWSON72729d ago (Edited 729d ago )

Odds are they did not play as much of the beta to develop these doubts. I easily had 50 or so hrs and played every single day, and in the first 10-20 hrs while you are first witnessing the game you are caught up in the fun and probably do not get into the nitty gritty to develop a lot of doubt. I will not be a huge judge on the final game because all I played was a beta but I see loads of things that are potential shortcomings.

Since it is bungie I will hold my head up high on release and hope for the best, because as somebody who has witnessed their support for a game I know they are not talentless just I think an MMORPG/competitive shooter (yes even if you did not play it it is a huge aspect in the game) is not going to be an easy thing to tackle.

@Lawson

I think they are very valid points. I think what it boils down to is.. Does the hype meet the expectations? I am not so sure yet either. I think its perfectly OK to have reservations of whether it will be. I think we all hope for it to be. I know I do but hype can be a killer for just about anything. I enjoyed the beta on both consoles, however not all of my friends are equally excited as most people online. I am still picking up the game. My main concerns are Story, possible DLC milking and longevity. These are perfectly valid concerns to me.
