Destiny provides some excellent looking character models but lacks any detailed customization features.
I got into the alpha and I'm amazed at how underwhelming this game is. I'm sure it's going to ride the hype train and the Bungie name to success, but it didn't show me anything worth paying 60 bucks for.
Because all the delays. This game should have been a 2013 or even a 2012 title. It looks like an aged game already. We have seen it so many times in previews and videos over all these years and so its here and ....well...
"...and videos over all these years..." What are you talking about? If I'm not mistaken, Destiny was presented to everyone last year. As for Destiny, this game hasn't convinced me, bit sceptical about it. Maybe because I'm not into MMO's.
Are people seriously complaining about the content in an ALPHA build? Wow Of course.its content deprived, its an alpha build, stop acting like the final game will be just this Pick ur favorite game, and now remove 98% percent of it, pretty underwelming isnt it?
Yah, 1 planet for the alpha which is the starting planet and highest level is 8 out of 20... Yah, the full game will be so underwhelming... Make some friends and explore the world / try the raid out. The full game is suppose to start when you hit 20, which is also when you can do the 6 man raids. There are also3 subclasses for each class (only 1 of which is unlocked in the alpha), which should provide variety within each class.
Limited? It's an Alpha. cramgaming.com...well that explains. Even the level cap is set low. ITS AN ALPHA. That said its rock solid stable and a blast to play.
You do realise an Alpha isn't a final build right? They aren't charging $60 for this. But I do agree, I understand its limited content but its not very fun at all. You Americans should be greatful games are only $60, in England we pay £50 a game, which is $84.80. :(
Exactly!!! Honestly Destiny has become the game to hate since the budget reveal and now people just seem to be hating on it because a lot of other people are doing it when they next to nothing about the game.
I realize it isn't the final game, I realize that it is only a small slice of the whole pie. And I'm not even saying it is terrible. It was just sort of "okay" to me. Hell, I'll probably end up buying the game, still, as I'm sure at the very least it would be fun to play with my friends. I'm not hating on the game, I'm just sort of "meh" about it right now.
it feels like a borderlands-halo-mass effect cross. I could see myself putting some hours into it with co op.
I love all three of those games... Count me in.
"I love when Sony fans get all butthurt " taken from one of your comments... so yeah your critique of the game is believable.
What does that have to do with anything? That was in response to some idiot blabbing about sales figures, this is a conversation about a multiplatform game. You think I'm biased to the point where I will badmouth a game I could play on my Xbox just because I'm currently playing the Alpha on PS4? That doesn't even make sense. It's sad that you are so hurt by me saying it's "underwhelming" that you have to comb through my comment history looking for ammo to "prove" that my opinion is invalid. Wow.
it shows you have hatred towards SONY and its fans. its easy to see where someone stands with their comments history buddy. a closer look at your comments history and your initial comment could even be considered trolling. you sure love down playing a lot of things SONY...so again your comment about how "underwhelming" the game is to you is moot. have a nice day kid.
Kid? That one always cracks me up. I'm probably old enough to be your dad. lol And saying I don't Love a game is trolling? So in your perfect little world everyone has to agree with you at all times, or what? Just because I like to counter some of Sony fanboy stuff that gets posted on this site doesn't mean I hate every game on a Sony system, especially one that it is multiplat. You realize that just because I'm playing the Alpha on PS4, if I were to come out and say that the game blows, I would be talking about the Xbox version as well, right? I don't get why you would even think any different. But whatever floats your boat. There is obviously no point in arguing with you.
western games usually suck at character creation/customization. korean mmos excel in character detailed creation. hopefully release build of destiny will impress us.
LOL @ all the PS Ponies trying to make this into a flamewar over playstation 4 like this is their game. Its a multiplat and even if it wasn't, if its underwhelming, its underwhelming. For the record as well as soon I saw gameplay of this game I called "MEH" as well.
At least somebody gets it. You'd think this was a Naughty Dog game the way they have claimed it as their own.
Played it and felt pretty underwhelmed. Voice acting is pretty bad lol. Game play Feels is halo mixed with borderlands. But it just felt average. Def not a single player game.
I thought Peter Dinkledge did a really good job voice acting as the robot. He didn't ham it up like clap-trap. He kept it somewhat robotic, but still had personality.
All I hear is Tyrion. Which really isn't a bad thing at all.
@NiteX It's like when Nolan North using his regular voice in Uncharted, then everyone else wants the same thing. Even though he do such amazing work like in Batman as the Penguin.
Man, there seems like a lot of people are underwhelmed by the Alpha judging from the Neogaf thread and the comments here. I am still keeping my pre order but hopefully the beta will be an improvement.
A must buy game, don't listen to the trolls above. Game looks great, even LevelCap said he was shock how good a console game can look so good.
I was always sceptical. I'm hoping to be wrong. Tell me you're having fun, those of you playing.
I was incredibly skeptical. I was telling my friends I wasn't going to buy it. After playing for 5 hours last night, I was hooked. I was still "Unimpressed" for the first hour or two. After which point, I couldn't stop. Multiplayer was a blast and the most fun I've had since Halo 2. I also had a ton of fun in the public events where we met up with another firesquad and we were trying to take down a giant spider-bot. Loving this game!
Thanks for your feedback. I will keep an open mind. It seems one just needs to give it a chance. :)
Unsurprisingly I see tons of 'it's like borderlands with halo meh' Since when has either been a bad thing?
Neither is a bad thing, unless you combine them and then make the world bland and boring, which is what Bungie seems to have done.
If they expect customization to play a big part then they need to completely revamp the character creation.
its most likely just a place holder so players can experience it, this is meant for feedback same as the beta except with a lot still not introduced to the players yet.
You do realize that unless you're in the tower, you're face is always hidden behind your helmet. There are no open face masks...
I'm not understanding what everyone wants out of the Alpha. This is pretty much a "we are no where near finished, but we love opinions so play what we have so far" situation. Day-Z did this same thing and people seem to love the crap out of that terrible excuse for a game. At least Bungie gave us something that plays great. Yes the game is like halo and borderlands. So? They are both awesome. This game feels very "next-gen" to me. Everything thing from the menus to the transitions to the feel of play gives me good hopes. I think it's great so far.
No where near finished? This game releases in September, right? That's only 3 months from now!
Yes, but this is an Alpha build, not beta. A lot changes between these cycles. Thus, there will surely be significant improvements (especially to the net code), before Sept. 9.
Exactly. The game is likely finished save for some last minute polish and minor debug. But I wouldn't expect any major revamp or new features that aren't already there. The game will be going gold soon...produciton, distribution. If the game is just 'meh' now...it's gonna be 'meh' when it launches.
The only reason they are calling this an Alpha is because next month is the Beta. If you think they are still going to do massive work on the game between now and September you are dreaming.
It's exactly what i expected it to be, and i like it. People should stop hype them self and each other.
Character customization isn't exactly the top priority when it comes to content for this game. Especially in it's Alpha state.
Not sure why this is any issue. the only time you'll see your characters face is at the Citadel, 95% of the time you'll be wearing a helmet. First time I was fighting the fallen and shots came over my shoulder from two players behind me I didn't know where there sold me on this game.
Uh, remember this is an Alpha. It's not about the look, it's about mechanics. Did anyone play the BF4 Beta? Looked really bad yes? Yet it looks gorgeous now...same difference. This is the way Alphas and Beta work. Hopefully they keep the customization limited. I don't want to spend hours in the menu.
Many people aren't liking the fact that the game is very underwhelming. I'm sorry but it is. I expected better. I was also thinking to myself: WOAH. Peter Dinklage in Destiny? He'll help me through it... nope. He was very bland. He's better in GoT. Way better.
A Ferrari is underwhelming with no gas in it right? It's an Alpha. They're giving us like 10% of the content. I just don't understand what people expected, the last game you'd ever play in your life or something?
It's an alpha. The game is due to be out within 4 months. I'm pretty sure they crammed all they can into their alpha, and if its underwhelming now, I get the feeling it still will be.
wow your way off on the whole alpha thing, we've only done 1 really semi major mission in the alpha and this is just in a cut off area of the earth map which we've only gotten to explore a small small amount of not to mention the other planets, i agree with you on Peter dinklage though, i feel like the love for that is from game of thrones hype, he was very very bland. I personally enjoyed the ALPHA build, didn't get to experience a public event like my younger brother but I already have some good experiences that I could possibly have never experienced in other games. It saddens me though because theres already a mass amount of people treating this as if its a full release and as someone whose moving towards game development this is disheartening, It's reminding me of what the animators of the animated series of Batman had to go through but with an audience that should know this is far from what you will get.
It's a alpha lol what are you guys complaining about? I think its got a ton of content for not even being the beta.
Yeeeah, I'll wait for the reviews before buying.
I wouldn't want to create my character play non stop over a year levelling my character up only for them to come out with DLC for new races, hair styles, other customization stuff and I'd have to start all over again to get a better looking character
I don't think Bungie would do that.
