ThisisXbox: "Whilst Destiny is a promising first entry into a story that will eventually span a whole decade, it doesn’t feel completely original because the lingering history of Halo still lives on. Maybe it was hard for Bungie to let go since the first similarity between the two titles is the noticeable companion of a Ghost in Destiny that resembles Guilty Spark in Halo. The two are very similar in their technical purpose of how they interact with certain in-game objects with both other comparisons easily made between rifle weapons, pulse weapons, enemies and level design. Halo’s Grunts with their all-in guns blazing approach could easily be identified as the flying robots who scour the nearby areas for your ass! Maybe for other console players Destiny is a whole new experience, but for Xbox fans – it’s a case of having been there and done it all before (cough cough Halo: ODST / REACH) only now it is part MMO-esque."
