Destiny Review | gamrReview

gamrReview's Nick Pantazis: "Hype is a cruel mistress. It’s a powerful tool to push pre-orders and interest. Hype creates positive word-of-mouth long before a game’s launch. It also makes a product which can never be what it was promised to be. Destiny is such a product. The promises were grandiose, the expectations through the roof, and it meets almost none of them. What it is, though, is very fun."

Better than a 6/10! that's just way too low. IMO it's a good game, and i really had fun playing MP on the beta. My score for me though is 8.5/10. Just my 2 cents.
There's only problem i have with it is, it's too freaking empty!!!!!

Beta was free that is why you had fun. When you pay for a game your perspective of looking at a game can go one of 2 ways. Either:

1. You will defend its genuine flaws till death


2. You will find flaws with the game that you overlooked in the free beta

Seriously stop defending your purchase on every review of Destiny.

These people are fighting themselves to say it is good, that is why they spend more time coming on reviews lambasting the reviewer defending their purchase.

If you really think it is an 8.5 then you would be comfortable with that opinion and not feel the need to come on and defend it against another opinion.

With this much hype even a score 7.5 appears to be an disappointment.

There is only as much "hype" as you let get into your brain. The game is what they explained it to be before launch. If you expected more then you made up expectations for yourself that they never promised.

I was not hyped at all for this game bit even I know it was way over-hyped. Activision and Sony saw to it that damn near everybody believed this was the biggest and best game of the year.

how can any review be objective when the first line is about hype. You dnt go in expecting a 10, then deduct and deduct as you realize its not perfect. The score should be based on the game's merit alone, and this game is fun as shit and technically very impressive. If this is a 7.5 im left wondering what deserves an 8?

Just traded and got it for $10. I'll judge it for myself.
