"Fundamentally speaking, Destiny is a well-designed and approachable game. It’s filled with interesting mechanics, rewarding gameplay, breathtaking visuals, and fantastic online support. In fact, it’s arguably the most successful online launch of all time – props to Bungie! However, if you look more closely at the launch content itself, you’ll discover a lot of woeful narrative exposition and repetitive mission design. Does this mean that Destiny is an average game? Well, right now, technically speaking; sort of. Everything that is currently wrong with the game can be improved with updates and new content, and Bungie is one of the best developers when it comes to community support. Destiny was promised to be an evolving experience, and I am optimistic of it’s potential; even if it’s far from realised."
