Born from a marriage between two of the most powerful giants–dare I say “gods”–in gaming, developer Bungie and publisher Activision, Destiny is a game that has had monumental expectations hoisted upon it, not unlike the legendary Grecian heroes of myth.
I make the reference because like all great heroes, Destiny serves as a pillar of excellence in many respects, but suffers from one unfortunate, tragic flaw that keeps it from perfection. With this latest effort, Bungie seems determined to step out of the shadow of Halo, but does the game live up to the hype? You’re a busy gamer with planets to see and bosses to kill, so I’ll give it to you straight: the answer is both “yes” and “no”.
