Destiny’s late reviews are justified

Lazygamer: Apparently, some rather heavily-marketed, RPG shooter with shared, MMO-esque worlds was released today. You won’t be seeing very many reviews for the game out today – save for one or two from mavericks who’ve ploughed their way through the game’s story without experiencing the game the way it’s meant to be played. Bungie has warned against day one reviews – and after playing for a few hours last night, I get their point.

Glad I cancelled my pre order order, between the repetitive beta and no reviews I think this game is gonna flop.flop flop.

qwerty6761531d ago

lol no it wont, it will sell amazing

no reviews means no one was swayed into cancelling their pre-orders.

Gamerbeyond1531d ago

lol, acti knew destiny will get butchered by the reviewers/ "journalists".

WalterWJR1531d ago

I never said the game wouldn't sell, I meant it's going to be a let down in general.

kennyg37391531d ago

He never said it want sell well.

Destiny's late reviews is the best thing to happen to games reporting.

I have with good reason become suspicious of some websites and their closeness to certain publishers and how they give out their scores.

Game reviews never influence my buying decisions. I am able to make my own informed choices. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Destiny will sell tremendously without reviews and it will convince other publishers not to overemphasise the importance of reviews or the reviewers opinions. Today we'll see an onslaught of 'First impressions' from everyday gamers who aren't paid to comment. The effect is we'll value YouTube personalities' previews more and hopefully these so-called 'journalists' wont think they are the most important part of the industry and well get more honesty.

This game wont flop. I stood in line last night for my copy and it was like that all over my city. Got home started playing with friends who all said the same.

Bs I still have a best buy gift card I was going to buy this game with until I seen no reviews. Still waiting.

Stallion1530d ago

With the mediocre fan reception, you're telling me it'll make back 500 million, the amount it needs just to be set even!? Lawl. Okay.

500 Million dollars!!!!

Nothing can go wrong with that.

Apex131531d ago

surly the money spent don't make it a good game. The beta was boring as hell.

tee_bag2421530d ago (Edited 1530d ago )

Obviously you're yet to realize good games come from innovation and talent. Plonking down 500 Million on the table might hire you some good talent but I won't guarantee a hit.

viperman2401530d ago

Guess sarcasm really isn't translated well in text form.

I thought me bringing up the fact that they spent half a billion dollars would signify I was being sarcastic. I guess you didn't see that sarcasm, it's understandable though.

For a game having such a huge budget, it sure ass hell doesn't feel like it does.

Even after playing the alpha/beta I don't see why so many are hyped for this game.

BiggerBoss1531d ago (Edited 1531d ago )

Would it make you happy to see the game flop? Why, I wonder?

This game will sell a ton, and there will be a lot of people that hate it, just like it is with any popular franchise. I'd wait until the actual reviews come in to judge it, or you know, you could actually play it yourself;)

WalterWJR1531d ago

No it wouldn't make happy to see it flop. I was expecting a lot more from this game, a halo quality story with with the added bonuses of a decent mmo. As far as I can tell we have neither.

Once again I never said the game wouldn't sell.

UnwanteDreamz1531d ago (Edited 1531d ago )

You are waiting to hear someone else tell you it'ts worth it? You figure that out while I play an awesome game. So what is your definition of flop?

vega2751531d ago (Edited 1531d ago )

@ bigger boss

I'm sure no one wants to see it fail or flop. But a lot of people are disappointed of the outcome of destiny.which is a reason people are canceling their preorders or just giving their opinion about the game.

As far as selling wise. There's no doubt destiny will sell. The problem with that is will it sell because its the best game out or did it sell on pure hype. I'm going for pure hype. It's borderland with better graphics mixed in with halo and a few other games.

CertifiedGamer1530d ago

WalterWJR apparently you don't understand how MMOs work and why Day 0 reviews don't make sense as MMOs require a nice number of players in server to get the experience as it is meant to be.

CaptainObvious8781530d ago (Edited 1530d ago )

Call me a paranoid, but I think some of the hate directed towards this game is coming from ms fanboys that want to see this game fail because it's been marketed heavily for the PS4.

Or am I way off the mark?

Yeah kind of feel sorry for the players who got caught in the hype hope they at the least get some enjoyment out of it.

Did any of you actually read the story?
The guy says he likes it, and he understands that Bungie wouldn't want reviewers to review a game that should be populated.

Mikelarry1531d ago (Edited 1531d ago )

Read the article when i can just troll on the internet and look cool for not liking destiny.... you must be kidding

My copy is waiting for me at home, i personally enjoyed the beta and i really liked what i played

Pogmathoin1531d ago

People are defending this like it is an Sony Exclusive, the same people who hammered 'generic' Bungie when they did Halo. Hard to review a game like this, honest reviews would be a month later. GTA online suffered at first, but once you ironed out the kinks, it was a much better experience. Never seen people on a site move the goal posts so much, as I do here. Get Destiny.... mess with it, enjoy it, take the serious after the first week or two when it would be much better.....

_FantasmA_1530d ago

Halo was unoriginal. It was poor mans, console version of Half Life. They even copied the needler. Destiny is a poor mans Borderlands with Mass Effect powers, stupid annoying Guilty Spark Ghost and added on multiplayer. The guns are too similar. There's really no point in leveling up just to replay the same levels again so that you can level up some more to play the same missions again. It has great potential. It does a lot of things, but it doesn't do any of them greatly.

WalterWJR1531d ago

I don't understand what needs being populated, the most humans on screen at the same time are 4 so what is the problem with reviewers just going round in a team of 4 the entire time?

UnwanteDreamz1531d ago (Edited 1531d ago )

You haven't played its amazing how many of you spread BS lies on here I played last night and can confirm that you are full of it. You canceled your preorder and yet your in here talking like you have played. GTFO

zagambe1531d ago

N4G is full of butthurt PC "gamers" and immature console fanboys. Read the article and then yapp shit.
