Destiny Beta Impressions; Better Than Halo? | PlayStationing

Ben @ PlayStationing writes: "Countless gamers around the world are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Destiny, the new incredibly ambitious title by Bungie of Halo fame. Not only is Destiny the first time Bungie are releasing a game on the PlayStation platform, it is the first time the company has been free to work on a new franchise since the release of Halo: Combat Evolved in 2001, and it is clear that they intend to make the most of this opportunity. Bungie is trying a lot of new things with Destiny, and though much of what they are implementing into their new game is similar to what we have seen in other genres, rarely if ever have we seen it done so well. I have had the pleasure of spending the majority of my time since the launch of the beta on the 17th exploring the world Bungie has built and getting to experience a small sample of what is in store for us when the game final releases this September."

Really detailed preview, sounds like the beta was quite big.

andydalum1509d ago

Yes and no, it was a decent size for a beta not anything to crazy it more showed the potential than anything in my own opinion.

Finding enemys in places you couldn't even harm yet, the PvP was done decent i think, the exploring was fun, side missions got old fast.

iNFAMOUZ11509d ago

i didn play it, the beta, nope, i want my first experience to be the full thing on the 9th

xer01509d ago

I can't say if it's better than Halo, because we're waiting for the finished product.

But it's a LOT of fun.

I'm excited for the release :)

PVP wise... Not even close, Bungie couldn't recreate the same magic in terms of competitive multiplayer.

Strangelover1509d ago

It was Bungie who created Halo, not 343i. They can recreate whatever they want and make it better than Halo.

TheBoy1509d ago

I know, that's why I said, "RECREATE" and what they've made in Destiny in terms of PVP is nothing short of casual, generic and mediocre and it's no surprise, it's Reach Era Bungie, not old school Bungie.

Septic1509d ago

Yeah but it doesn't look like they have bettered Halo's PVP at all.

marlinfan101509d ago (Edited 1509d ago )

yeah i felt the same way. i hardly even played pvp during the beta and I'm normally a huge pvp player. halo MCC will fill that void

gaffyh1508d ago

I think Strangelover's point is that they could if they wanted to. The game has a 10 year plan, so there could be plenty of updates.

I agree. All Destiny's PvP did was get me excited for the Master Chief Collection.. lol.

TheBoy1509d ago (Edited 1509d ago )

Same here, after seeing Halo 2 Remastered, I have zero hype or desire to play Destiny PVP, new era Bungie have lost the magic.

Budobear1509d ago

I'm excited for the Master Chief Collection to but I think its a bit early to say that the Destiny PvP has failed. We only saw one limited game type, no doubt there will be more on different maps etc.
I'm trying to think of my least favourite Multi-player halo map now and failing, but just imagine if you'd only seen one game play type on an ok map from halo before you played the whole may not have impressed either.

Just a thought

Yeah well I never liked halo but I absolutely loved the destiny beta!
