There's a big difference between over-powering the player and making the player become empowered in a game. We break down the fundamental differences in combat between Destiny and Bungie's first baby, Halo: Combat Evolved.
Heres the only diffference you need to know. Halo lived up to the hype, Destiny did not. Good little read though.
I've enjoyed the core combat mechanics of Destiny far more than any Halo game though... (Note: I did not say it's a better game) The main reason I'm still playing is that it's so enjoyable to move around the maps and the combat feels so good. It's not like I'm sticking around for the stellar story.
What core combat mechanics besides the powers. Playing Halo is like a chess match (multiplayer)as each gun counters something else. Shit, some pistols counters whole vehicles. That what I mean destiny does nothing of the sort.
I was referring more to the overall "feel" of the combat. The weapons seem to have a weight to them and they're just enjoyable to use. Popping off headshots with the handcannon is beautiful. It's a testament to how great the combat feels that, despite all the complaints, you haven't heard people ranting about it being 30fps instead of 60. Agreed on your other points though.
@OOMagnum I have to disagree with you. I'm having more fun playing Destiny than I have in a long time playing games. I'm super happy with it.
The fact is though plenty of people thinking Halo didn't live up to the hype generally wont have played it long enough to know anyway. To suggest that Halo1 didn't live up to hype in the minds of those that bought an xbox for it is nonsense because it was absurdly well received and helped sell the xbox as much as it did
It's bar none the most important launch game a console has ever had, Xbox may not be here without it. I was a PlayStation 2 guy, but my friend had me over one day and we played the game on legendary starting from the beginning, once I hopped in the warthog for the very first time I was hooked. I left his house that day, went to the store and bought an Xbox and a copy of Halo. My PlayStation 2 was never again turned on. That says it all right there.
Destiny is like a blown up Halo ODST firefight with 30 minute bosses and powers. Overall feel is nearly the same. Halo is just a much better executed game.
Lmao.....There IS NO COMPARISON other than Bungie being the creator of both. DESTINY WILL NEVER BE IN THE SAME ballpark as Halo. Destiny WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO COMPETE WITH HALO. not in Story, Lore, Universe or multiplayer. Not gonna happen. If your happy with your purchase of Destiny then good for you. If your having fun with Destiny then good for you. But Destiny is not will not EVER BE HALO. Destiny is anywhere from a 6.5 to an 8.0 Halo has never received anything lower than a 9.0 Lol. Whatever blah blah Destiny this blah blah..If Destiny was a Xbox ONE exclusive...lol you Sony fan boys would be ripping it apart right now. But since Bungie has sacked your little weenwee's, MOST not all but most Sony fans are blinded by there purchase.
