Destiny PS4 Review - A wonderful universe deep with content and endless opportunities for growth. Does it live up to the hype? The answer is simple.
Intresting. Well the review is okay, decently written. What's interesting are these tiny cracks exposing little spurts of review, because you know the dam is about to explode come let's say...Friday.
whether the reviews are positive or not-so positive the first impressions arent great. low scores and people openly bash the game together. high scores and people bash the reviewer and the game. When developers/publishers spend unwarranted amounts of money on hyping up a game that is no better than every other game, they are asking for backlash. They are the ones hyping it up. Nobody hates Destiny or Watch Dogs because they were popular. People were annoyed because their devs and publishers spent endless millions of dollars pushing it into absolutely everyones faces and wouldn't shut up for months about it, and then it's released and it's just okay. I can't be the only one who sits here and thinks, if only they spent that $xx million spent on marketing on actually making the game, it would have been better than okay. It's pretty stupid that people are actually rewarding devs/pubs for wasting so much money. The second the game is released, that 10,20,30 whatever million was instantly a waste. "Oh wow, this game is so great because of all those millions spent marketing, it really shows" - Nobody ever.
Good points. But you have to realise commenters on sites like N4G are the (very) vocal minority. Simple business and marketing rules apply. To Reach the not so hardcore gamer that is not so interested and invested in games that they read sites like n4g, you NEED marketing. Agreed the marketing budget for the franchise is huge (exorbitant maybe even) Look on the plus side, destiny might pull in more and more gamers into the hardcore zone thanks to the rpg elements and the deeper workings of the end game. I for one think Destiny is a hell of a lot better to have as the biggest shooter franchise than cod. inevitibly destiny will get 'ruined' and the vocal hardcore gamers will want something else. And so-on and soforth
" A wonderful universe deep with content " 3 classes 5 worlds lv20 cap lol...
I read that comment in the review and I was like... "Did we play the same game??" There's a decent amount of content, but it certainly isn't that intense.
Is it a easy Platinum?
@JoGam Sorry, I can't answer that. I played it on the xbox one version.
@JoGam Not even close.
Drive by comments: vintage "hate the big popular thing".
Yet i have over 1000 hours in DOTA 2, an even more popular thing.
You know exactly what I mean. does DOTA2 have the same mass appeal as destiny? Of course not. It's false equivalence.
The opening sales of this is going to be the tip of the iceberg, no amount of hate is going to slow this train, haha, but you can keep trolling in vain, its fun to watch.
I saw a level 23 and 21 yesterday
Mates, to clarify the issue of the extensive content, it is really a well developed game. The amount of things to do and ways to do it are vast. If you've been around in gaming you can truly appreciate the scope and delievery of this game. Might not be for everyone, but it is a great title with loads of entertainment. Everyone is entitled to an opinion of course, so feel free to continue sharing your voice.
when's pc version out?
Rumored March 2015
Its a game that controls really well, has a nice chunk of gameplay opportunities, and can keep you occupied for some time. Whilst it isnt a game changer in the FPS market, and isnt one of the best games of the year, you will still find yourself enjoying the game. Its a shame these games produce so much hype before release as it ultimately makes the game seem worse than expected. Whilst i was expecting more as it was from Bungie, its a fun game with awesome landscapes.
I'd say its one of the best games of this year. What've you been playing this year? (No Remasters)
As far as games released this year go, i agree. Very slim pickings: Dark Souls 2 The Stick of Truth I decided to go back and play some exclusives I missed on ps3 and xbox360. I picked up: Heavy Rain Uncharted 3 GOW 3 Also decided to replay the Witcher and The Witcher 2. Other pc games I've been playing include: Dues Ex Thief (original not that remake crap) Crysis 1, 2 and 3 Spelunky Games I will be picking up in tje next 4-8 weeks could include: Lords of the Fallen Civilization Beyond Earth Alien: Isolation Middle-Earth: Shadows of Mordor The Evil Within Gauntlet Will any of those be worthy of GOTY? Probably not but at least the drought is over!
The ONLY thing I can honestly say I am dissapointed with is the lack of "life" in the worlds. I mean the Moon is an amazing gameplay arena but when I look at the sky, it doesn't move, it looks like a water-color painting (beautiful, still) and I am not sure why, but it bothers me and seems lazy. Makes the sky look eerily dead to me. I hate that I've explored nooks and crannies of Earth/The Moon and find... nothing, no new/unique bad guys, no loot, no ammo, no chests. Just, empty rooms and caves and fields. That said, I personally enjoy the game right now at about 8.5/10 because playing it is really fun. The coop missions, strikes, etc. are all great and I enjoy my friends and I popping in and out of each other's games. Hopefully they add updates and add ons to liven up the worlds.
