I've played a bit of Destiny at a friends and read the lore. I'm dying to play but I'm not at a point where I can justify an HD TV and a new
Get the console for the other games that are available. Destiny is not what you would expect. From all the promises and build up to the game I
expected a huge, exploration based FPS with a deep and long story line. I expected to be spending ages building my character's gear and exploring new
areas and playing end game content. But I obviously had too great of expectations.
Before I rant I want to say the music in Destiny is truly impressive. Big thumbs up to the composer. And the graphics are great. The game is beautiful
to look at. The controls and gun play is probably the best I have experienced and it is that reason only that I spent as long as I did on the game
(which was only about 2 weeks after buying it)
There isn't really any lore in Destiny. There is no story, no character development, terrible voice acting and the game is incredibly small and
The story is around 8 to 10 hours from start to finish. Most of the characters don't even have names and the areas to explore are not that big. They
are beautiful but small. The missions are repetitive having you do the same things over and over. All the guns look the same.
Once you finish the story and get onto the end game content you realise there is no end game content. Just 1 raid.
All you can do is the same strike missions over and over and over that you were doing through the story anyway but on a harder setting. You can do
bounties, which let you go back to places you have already been and kill so many of the mobs you have already killed or collect things. This allows
you to gain reputation which can lead to epic gear that looks exactly the same as the lower sh!tty gear.
You can change the ship you fly. But you cant fly it. You can only look at it as part of a loading screen while the missions load.
There is no communication. The only way to talk to anyone is if you join a fire team. so you have to randomly invite people out of the blue and hope
they join your team before you can speak. The tower (central safe zone) only allows 16 players per instance and there is absolutely no trading what so
ever. So if you pick up an epic chest piece that is not for your class and somebody else has something that they cant use but you can, you cant trade
You will have to buy all the future downloadable content in order to see more story. But even then it will probably be in the same places you already
know with the same mobs you already killed.
To get the full game as intended and the best experience from it you may have to wait 12 months and spend over £100 over all.
I wish I never bought it. There is absolutely no reason for the producers to do this to a game. I don't blame Bungie I blame Activision. With games
like Skyrim, Dragon Age, Grand Theft Auto 5 you pay £45 and you get hundreds of hours of gameplay. Masses of customisation to your characters. Areas
so big to explore that you can get lost I feel like Activision are laughing at everyone who has bought this game.
Destiny was probably a huge game during development, but has been chopped up into pieces. a quarter of it was released in September for £45 and the
rest will be released periodically for £20 each time. Players have actually stumbled upon locked content that is hidden on the disk for future
I don't mean to hate on it so much but I was so disappointed considering everything we as gamers were promised. I guess I am just giving you a heads
up since you are fortunate enough not to have wasted your money on it yet. I would advise against it. GTA5 is out on Tuesday which will give you far
more value for money. and Dragon Age Inquisition is out 4 days after that which again will be a far better investment.
