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.

I purchased Destiny in September when it came out. At first it seemed fun so I recommended it to my husband and brother, who also bought copies. with the addition of two playmates however Destiny went from fun to almighty fun! The game really comes into it's own and has a different dimension with you have friends you can play with however if I was playing alone I would not think the game was anything special. I was going to knock a star off for that as I think you should be able to have a very good experience either way but I have got such good value out of destiny (I probably played for around 450 hours already I worked out and I still find it fun) that I can't give it anything less than 5 stars. Yes it's not totally perfect but it's closer than most!

Saying that, now there is matchmaking for strikes so even with no friends you are easily teamed up with randomers in the same position that you can choose to speak to or not (it doesn't matter either way for your completion of the strikes). There is also a huge PvP element but I don't like PvP so I didn't even play that apart from few times in the beginning. My brother who does enjoy PvP however plays it a lot. All in all, though there are a few things that would benefit from a change, Destiny gives you a lot of choice in your playing experience, you can play with friends, with random people, versus friends/random people or on your own. Each seems to be quite fulfilling but it's no big deal if you don't try them all (for example I don't like the raids or the PvP so I don't play those much, but I have completed the story mode with a hunter and a warlock character, I regularly play the daily missions, nightfall and strike playlist in addition to bountys and patrol missions with friends.

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.
