"Bungie's biggest game of the year is finally here and we have been taking our time these last couple of days playing through the massive FPSMMORPG in order to score it properly." PS4.sx
Its a shame most people seem to not like the story, I thought it was quite good, but then again I have never played Halo which is another title this is being compared a lot to.
I think what people don't realize is most of Halo's first writers have long since left Bungie ages ago. This Bungie is a different company now tot guys who slaved over the original Halo.
An honest respectable review. Can't fault the story is somewhat weak, but those who haven't played Halo will really enjoy this a lot.
Halo is one of my favorite games... And I still love destiny... Not sure why people can't seem to do both
I totally agree. I love Halo and I love Destiny.
I love both games too. My only fault with Destiny is the repitive missions. But I love the graphics and really like the music. Still, there's plenty else to do, like strikes, raids, a new event for the crucible lined up this weekend, and another from next week.
I have been reading so many mixed reviews on this, I think when a game is so hyped up, it can only lead to disappointments for many, but I still prefer this to Titanfall any day.
Games are completely different... Not sure why they'd even be compared
Yet another game that has fallen to the media hype. I don't think Bungie would care though, they have already sold 500 million units, so all these reviews maybe pointless at this point.
They may have sold well, but may not be so lucky selling a sequel. The game at best is average, I think most people really wanted to love this game, but if you've already played Halo you pretty much played this. Except its just a larger sandbox and MMO capabilities.
I think they will sell well with the sequel. it may not be out for some time and maybe by then they would have tweaked the games story.
Pate, You just described an awesome game.
@patelsanjeed I did want to love this game, and I do love this game as do millions of other people. Stop treating your own opinion as the majority's.
Why all the long reviews abut this game? Its a simple run point and shoot MMO. Theres nothing particularly cutting edge about it. The PvE was boring, but the PvP is great and what many will most likely be playing long after the campaigns and end game missions.
I really like destiny... its the best FPS i have seen and played in a while. The MMO element is great. The story is forgettable sure, but that could always be tweaked with future updates.
I keep seeing people complain about the story and calling it "forgettable". It seems to be the biggest complaint. But lets be honest with ourselves. Most games do have forgettable stories. Its rare that a game comes out with a fantastic story that has gameplay to match.
I think maybe Last Of Us spoiled us for story, it's hard to live up to that standard of story telling. I don't think Destiny's story is so bad, but then again I actually quite liked Watch Dogs story too lol.
A few days in and I am still having too much fun to care about reviews now. Bungie/Activision has my money and i am not disappointed one bit.
nice detailed review. the PVP is what i look forward to most in the game.
A real let down mate. I don't know if i was hoping to see more after the Beta, but not much here.
i reckon a 4/5 is a good mark for Destiny. The game is solid.
The criticism on quiters in PVP is another reason why I think this game failed. When you only have 6 vs 6 that one or two missing person is freaking huge. This isn't BF4 where a team with 28 can easily hand a team with 32 players it's ass. But can we really blame the people who quit losing matches when the game frequently place lvl 6 players using white weapons vs lvl 20 vets in purple gear?
Yeah that's just so frustrating, stupidly unbalanced.
Gunna Start to get after it this weekend!! Ps4 add me so we can meet up. PSN: TBK4LIFE555
