Destiny Review: Everything You Thought It’d Be | Technology Tell

Technology Tell writes, "Destiny isn’t the first game to straddle the FPS and MMO genres, but it is rare to see a title achieve that particular hybrid without compromising any of the core mechanics integral to the shooter experience. It feels like an FPS through and through, and targets a very large and divisive demographic; a demographic split on the relative merits of storytelling in video games."

yet, ANOHTER example of how stupid and useless reviews are now.. wayy too much fanboyism (or even haterism) involved with these. This one is pretty dang stupid..

Doesn't it get old trolling every Destiny article you see on N4G? Give it a break already.

Thought it was a solid game but there's way to many flaws for it to be A/A

"Destiny: everything you thought it'd be". I wholeheartedly disagree

...if you played the beta, it should be EXACTLY what you thought it'd be. the game is EXACTLY like the beta, anybody who bought into "hype", when the game was fully on display to everybody with $5, needs to get their expectations managed.

It's one of the most addictive games I've played in awhile. Love it!!!!

Just did VoG on hard last night. After 5 normal tries, i think, I needed my helmet for 30.

The beta was the game, which is the main problem. A beta is supposed to show you a small snippet of the game, but in actual fact, it felt like it contained half of the entire experience.

Based on what I now know, I would have been satisfied with just playing the beta and then I could have moved onto something else. Oh well, live and learn I guess....

I like the game, but a score of A/A is being too generous. The game in its current state is in the range of a B or B+ at best. Whether the game rectifies its various short comings with future updates remains to be seen.

Currently Destiny has the same metacritic score as Evil within, which is also BS.

A game with a huge campaign, co-op, multiplayer, integrated rpg system, almost unlimited amount of fun, should not be considered equal to a 10 hour linear single player game if they retail for the same price. But I guess metacritic is not really a good indication of a game's value.

King_of_Nothing1875d ago (Edited 1875d ago )

Metacritic is definitely not a good indicator of value! Regardless of how fun or good a game is, you can count on the negative types to come out in droves to smear it.

While I agree and love destiny, o do think different genres deserve to be reviewed on different scales etc.

As far as where I invest my money, it's easy to choose a game u can play for 100s of hrs.
