From the Manufacturer

Destiny

From the creators of Halo and the company that brought you Call of Duty.

In Destiny you are a Guardian of the last city on Earth able to wield incredible power. Explore the ancient ruins of our solar system, from the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus. Defeat Earth's enemies. Reclaim all that we have lost. Become legend.

Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. Long ago, it breathed new life into our system. Rain washed over Mars. Fresh air cleansed the skies over Venus. Soon after, humanity raced into the black, and colonised these newly remade worlds. It was a time of miracles – a great Golden Age.

Game modes

Crucible: competitive multiplayer

Enter the Crucible to hone your competitive skills against other Guardians in arenas that span the solar system. Victory will earn you rewards and reputation.

Patrol: on-demand adventure

Revisit the worlds you have discovered to aid the City in their exploration efforts, seek out valuable resources in order to upgrade your weapons and gear, and link up with other brave Guardians roaming the frontier in search of action and adventure.

Strike: cooperative multiplayer

Form a Fireteam, three Guardians strong. Infiltrate an enemy stronghold, cutting through wave after wave of enemy ranks emboldened by their fierce, battle-hardened leaders. Confront an enemy worthy of only the bravest Guardians.

Tower: third-person social space

Home of the Guardians, the Tower is a third-person social hub where you can regroup, rearm, and form new alliances before venturing beyond the safety of the City’s walls.

Story: epic campaign

Destiny features a rich, cinematic story, centred on your quest to discover and explore the remains of humanity’s Golden Age. As a Guardian, you must venture beyond our walls into a wild and dangerous frontier, and take the fight to ancient evil forces hell bent on our destruction.

Raid: cooperative adventure

Raids are the ultimate test of your strength. Team up with your fellow Guardians and take on huge bosses and tough puzzles to unlock exclusive loot. If the pressure is too much, you can leave and resume the fight later.

Story

Our Golden Age

Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. Long ago, it breathed new life into our system. Rain washed over Mars. Fresh air cleansed the skies over Venus.

Soon after, humanity raced into the black, and colonised these newly remade worlds. It was a time of miracles – a great Golden Age.

Hope in the darkness

It did not last. The Traveler had an ancient enemy. A powerful darkness that found us here on Earth, and nearly destroyed us.

No one knows exactly what happened in those final moments, but we know this: we survived, and we owe our lives to the Traveler.

We rise again

In our darkest days, Humans, Exos, and Awoken found the Traveler where it made its last stand, low above Earth, silent and immobile.

We built the City – our last – within its protective veil, fighting countless wars to keep its peace. From that dark age, Guardians were born.

A new frontier

Now, a new era has begun, and the only hope for our future lies in unlocking the greatest mysteries of our past. You are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth, able to wield some of the Traveler's incredible power. You are taking this mantle just as a new day dawns. Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks have finally returned to our long-lost worlds, only to find out we are not alone.

I'll pre-face this review with this fact: I did enjoy playing Destiny. I have a lot of criticisms of it and I think it was hugely disappointing - but it was simple fun. If you have a few friends to play with, you'll get the most out of it. This isn't in any way a bad game that you should avoid, it's just one you should lower your expectations for and consider whether you'll be happy to pay full price for it.

It's not secret at this point that Destiny has an identity crisis. It wants to be an MMO at it's core, but through the medium of a story based first person shooter. It also wants to be a loot-driven RPG and a competitive multiplayer game. Whilst these components do fit together in a meaningful way, they each feel somewhat neglected and minimal. The result is a game that has lots of different ideas, but doesn't really do any of them that well.

So starting with the story missions, Destiny never picks up pace from the lacklustre beginning to the whimper of a finale. The writing here is completely poor, with no explanation or reason given to any of your actions nor the context of the world that you're exploring. Peter Dinklage's role as ghost, your portable exposition device, feels cold and lifeless. Perhaps it was an attempt to mimic Steve Merchant's hilarious companion from Portal 2, but without the good writing it falls entirely flat. I also never felt entirely pulled in by the worlds you'll get to explore. Sure, the vistas are incredible and if you look on a next-gen console the graphics are sharp and striking. But they rarely feel like much more than a palette swap of each other, with the same meaningless rocks and mountains with the same ultimately drab dungeons that permeate each.

What only works in the game is the mechanics(gunplay+moving) as it's quite close to Halo only faster and the random cooperation between players has a nice touch.
What does not work? All the rest.
The story is completely forgettable and the narration in how it's presented is "The Event" bad.
The levels while beautiful feel lifeless and bland to me and that will only be amplified because you replay the same locations endlessly.
The looting feels like a chore.
To appreciate the missions you need to be lobotomized.
The enemies are the epitome of boredom. Some you can connect to Halo races in how they behave sometimes but it doesn't deliver a really entertaining fight. It's all about hordes shoot em up. A FPS version of Galaga.
The actual user interface outside the game(Tower/Traveling) feels like a misguided chore sooner or later as the only effect it has is stretching the game experience and waste the gamer's time.
This game requires no intelligence. If playing repeatedly the same things without any problem solving is something you enjoy it might be the right game for you. But if you've enjoyed Halo's atmospheric campaign with its chaotic dramaturgy and the satisfaction after accomplishing things look elsewhere.
It's an utter disappointment for a studio with the profile of Bungie. It's even worse if you realize it took them 6 years to deliver this incoherent train wreck.

Can you enjoy playing it, yes, but in a mindless guilty pleasure kind of way. A hollow candy stick.

If people tell that DLCs will "fix it" forget it. That will only add more of the same but that's not helping whats fundamentally wrong with the gameplay.

3/5 or 6/10 from an "objective" point of view. From a subjective POV which includes expectations and promises by Bungie I give this a 1/5.

I'm not the biggest FPS fan, but I was genuinely disappointed by Destiny. After playing the Beta and having a good time with a buddy, I was excited to play the full game but within 2 days of getting it...it was on the shelf ready to gather dust and my salty tears. How disappointing.

If you played the Beta there is no need to get the full game. The Beta IS the full game really...ok there are 3 more locations in the full game but the enemies, missions, and side activities do not change. It might as well be called "Grinding: the game of grind!", because that's what you have to do...that's all you can do... You'll max your level in a couple of hours then spend more time than you actually have available grinding to find a helmet that has "light" attached to it...and when you get it, it's for a different class.

The voice acting isn't great, the story is shallow and unless you spend hours reading the online codexes (which you can do in game) the story makes very little sense. Bungie say Destiny is a ten year plan...yeah, a ten year plan to make money from suckers.

The game looks great, the skyboxes are made with love and some of the weapons look cool. It's a game made by people that had good intentions but lost it's way. It's a good weekend distraction. Nothing more.

Harsh review? Sure, but it's true.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good at first.. 22 Nov. 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox One| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
When I first got this game I loved it until I realised Bungie are not what I remember them to be in the fact that they made a campaign that does not make sense until near the end as its just all messed up as they cut so much from the original storyline so it wont make sense.... then there's the fact that Bungie just put a barrier up in certain places of the campaign just to then sell them areas in DLC packs priced between £12-£20 per pack in which Xbox only gets access to half of the content at first and then unlocks the rest at a later date.... Multiplayer is ok but not the best in my opinion..... I hope this review helped.
