System, Music, and Graphics
First, the graphical and gameplay aspect. In this area, Destiny shines. It is well polished, graphically impressive, and easy to handle. The music is top notch.
This is where the game is the weakest. MMO-wise, it is pretty terrible. You cannot type to chat. You are limited to 4 emotes mapped to a controller button. It is difficult to form a party with people. People in your party might not have headsets plugged in and won't hear you or be able to talk with you. They can wander off and not really help you at all. The process for joining or forming parties is cumbersome. In the first 20 hours of playing, I have had 1 person join my fireteam (even though I had it open to all and invited people often). So socially, it is an single player game where you see other people are playing. The Tower area advertised as a social hub really just has people standing around dancing. There is no way to communicate so there really isn't any other way to interact. I found it immersion breaking to see people just dancing with npcs. You are told the galaxy is threatened by darkness, but have people breaking that dark atmosphere by dancing childishly.
Rpg-wise, Destiny flops terribly. Almost nothing is explained or resolved. There are three playable races...but what are the Awoken? Are they aliens? Are they evolved humans? You'll never know. There are multiple alien attacking races.Read more ›
The short answer is no. If you come into the experience hoping it will be the next halo, you'll be sorely disappointed.
That's not to say Destiny is a bad game by any means. The gunplay is solid and the art direction is wonderful. Unfortunately though, I don't foresee this game having much staying power beyond a weekend or two, as there simply isn't enough substance here to really push you to play beyond those initial 20 hours or so.
For starters, there isn't much respite from the incredibly repetitive missions. Pretty much every mission involves touching down on a planet, walking or riding to a instanced area, and then slowly pushing forward through waves of samey enemies until you reach a waypoint, where you hold down a button and your "ghost" companion gives you some vague or nonsensical plot information entirely through speech. At which point, you return to your ship so you can do it all again (But not before sitting through up to a full minute of loading screens). I've played for 20 hours so far and I have yet to play through a mission that deviates from this structure.
The levels themselves are beautiful and wide open, and you can often find loot boxes in little alcoves off the beaten path, so traversing them can actually be quite fun. Unfortunately you'll be visiting the same ones over and over and over again.Read more ›
I've loved Halo in the past, and had a great deal of respect for Bungie's work in general, and I think it's fair to say that I was more excited for this game than just about any other. With a strong mechanical backbone, Destiny's shooting feels good; much like you would imagine from Bungie, but unfortunately, that's about the only positive thing I can say about the experience.
While the game offers an interesting premise, it quickly devolves, leading to a story that literally goes out of it's way to tell you that it isn't going to explain anything that's going on. (An actual line from the game is, "I don't even have time to explain why I don't have time to explain what's going on.") It doesn't matter if you hire good voice actors if you give them awful lines to read. You will finish this game with absolutely no idea what you did or why you did it. I guess for all the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on this game's development, no one could be bothered to give the script a once-over.
And maybe you're thinking that the storyline won't matter. You're going to play the game for 100+ hours, so who cares if the story is any good, right? Well, I've got bad news for you. You're going to be replaying the same things A LOT. There's an amazing, surprisingly small amount of content in this game. You can easily see every environment there is to see (And you can bet you'll see multiple missions in a row that you go to the exact same places), in a matter of hours. Even once you get to the end game content, once you figure it out, all there is to do is replay it in the hopes of randomly getting better equipment.Read more ›
