The gameplay is addictive and satisfying, polished to a mirror sheen. The universe is breathtakingly beautiful, taking players on an epic journey throughout the solar system. While the world of Destiny feels fully realized, visually speaking, its characters and story feel like rough sketches. With a $500 million budget and the promise of a 10-year lifespan for the game, gamers rightfully expected more. But if you can manage your expectations, look beyond the hype and see the game for what it is – a very solid shooter with the possibility to become something much greater in the future – you’ll likely have a lot of fun with Destiny.
