EGMR writes: "Destiny is the mother of all mixed bags. You've got a fun shooter built on rock solid mechanics with a gorgeous art direction and a great PvP offering, but you've also got an abysmal story, excessively repetitive and unrewarding quests, a barren and lifeless world and a poor endgame. In that way it's a contradiction. It feels like the foundations of a much more substantial game, yet at the same time I can't see what that substance is or will be. As of right now the only reason to stick around is the Crucible, and however long that lasts is up to you once real competition releases. Destiny is ultimately the product of far too much hype without the required pay off, falling dramatically short. It certainly won't be in my mind come the year end."
