To be honest, this game isn't a 5/10, as the games mechanic is really good, all the issues with the game can be patched in. as of now, i think a 6 or 7 fits the game, as the gunplay is really well made, but i believe the game can rise higher in score as the content patches come. Such as raids.
...uh-huh. Yeah. "Really good fun" apparently can't make a game good these days...
It's more than a 5 out 10, I've played many a 5/10 and they don't come close to Destiny. It seems many are reviewing the game against their expectations of Bungie rather than reviewing the game. Quite a few are loving it judging by the hrs they have put in, plus the game is better with friends.
I was in the camp that the game is a 6. Over the week I've started enjoying it more and more. It's an amazing product, they just utterly dropped the ball on a lot of things. But it's no 5... Come on. 7-8 minimum.
I am with you. I was thinking a six until I got to Venus and the missions started getting a bit more interesting. I think the more vibrant locale may have helped along with the mission length. Now I am beyond 20 I am enjoying it a hell of a lot more than I was. The story (if you can call it that) didn't grip me in the slightest through the first 20 levels. Mainly because it isn't really there. I am however greatly enjoying the tougher raids and grinding for light. It definitely has issues that I hope Bungie addresses (the lack of an in game version of the Grimoire is the biggest one for me) but it is good. And it keeps me coming back. I don't really like handing out numbers but in its current state I think a 7 is fair. That to me suggests it is good but needs work to make it great.
What's gonna happen in a few months when a very linear, non-RPG element, very accessible [casual friendly] game called CoD comes out?? Can't wait to see all the 9's thrown around by reviewers for that.
I wont be surprised if COD:AW is actually pretty decent since new developers are making it and an Oscar winning actor is involved with it. I am trying to hype COD:AW a little by telling myself that it is not a new COD game but it is a new IP called Advanced Warfare made by the guys who made Dead Space 1.
COD beats destiny in every way. You all can bitch and moan about COD, but when you buy a COD game you know what you are getting and people buy the heck out of it no matter what the reviews say. It's a blockbuster franchise so the few pittly amongst the millions that love to play this game ignore the useless minority that slam COD.
Another ouch score.
Another lol wut score, judging from the friend and relative reviews I've gotten. They all love it.
Well INSIDE GAMING (MACHINIMA) gave DESTINY a 43 out of 10 ! They said, DESTINY has a ton of "fun factor" on today's episode of "INSIDE GAMING DAILY" .
Realistically the game is a 7 but with the understanding of how much money they put into the game & what they claimed it to be prior to release I can understand why reviewers are giving it these lower scores & it's kind of understandable.
It's definently not a 5. More like a 5.5.
5 out of 10? That's extreme. And nowadays, extreme = click bait... everyone is entitled to their opinions, but a 5/10 hardly demands people's time or holds interest. The mechanics alone put this above a 5/10. Assuming the game grows organically (not using paid DLCs)... this could be a long running title. If everything costs money however, people will grow tired of Destiny faster than we should.
You can't give Destiny a 5 and call yourself Honest Gamer. It is very easily a 7-8 game. Personal mileage always varies, but to be so blatantly harsh is a desperate call for hits.
Its most definitely atleast a 7, highest a 8.
