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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jump on the hype train... 14 Oct. 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation4|Edition:Standard Edition
Ramblings of a gamer...

Originally I wasn't going to review this game for two reasons.
1) So much has been said about Destiny that I wasn't sure if I could add to it.
And...
2) There's a lot of gamers sticking up for Destiny who'd be willing to chase anybody who says otherwise with a pitchfork and torch!

But here goes...

Destiny...

Six years in the making and with an alleged budget of $500million...how could it go wrong?

Maybe I should've listened to my spider-sense when I was asked in Game whether I'd like to buy the expansion pass for £34.99!!
"Wait, what?? Why am I expected to pay another £35 on top of the £55 I just spent on the game, on the day of release???
Is there something they're not telling me? £35 is a price of some games anyways but this is dlc (downloadable content.) Am I missing something here?"

You see, Destiny was supposed to be the next big thing. After all, it was in the hands of 'Bungie', a very competent developer who had spent years making the game. And they had a ten year plan for this thing.

But then the reviews came out, and most of them have not been good.

Perhaps this is why Activision waited to turn on the multiplayer servers for reviewers AFTER the game launched.
Because if Activision allowed early access to reviewers and if these reviews were released on launch day, no way would Destiny sell more than $325 million worldwide in its first five days.

You see, the truth is...Destiny was overhyped.

There you go, I said it...
This is my personal opinion mind, so anyone who does enjoy the game good for you. But for me? I want to play a game that pulls me into a believable world to explore either on my own or with friends.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shoot, loot, repeat... 30 Oct. 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation4| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Initial feelings of 'this is a well made entertaining game' were quickly replaced with 'im sick of doing the same things over and over'. A flawed game that could have been so much more

Platform for Display:PlayStation4|Edition:Standard Edition
From the creators of Halo and the publisher of Call of Duty comes Destiny. With an unprecedented variety of FPS gameplay, Destiny promises to deliver an incredible story set within a newly-imagined, always-connected universe filled with action and adventure.

Simplistic “it’s like X mixed with Y” comparisons don’t really add up when attempting to explain what Destiny is, or why it’s worth playing. It borrows from many well-established gaming destinations, but the climate of each is wildly different, and often incompatible. It’s a complex production that boils down simply to this: Destiny is a mechanically excellent, visually evocative FPS housed within an under-developed RPG framework. The endgame might hook you for the long haul once you fully understand it, but Destiny is ultimately unable to be all the different games it’s trying so hard to be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Destiny, the biggest let down of the year so far! 10 Sept. 2014
By MrE TOP 50 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PlayStation4|Edition:Standard Edition
Destiny is one of the most expensive games ever made along with being the most highly anticipated, sadly the game does not meet the hype that Bungie and Activision have pushed, before i talk about the bad areas i want to talk about what the game is about.

Essentially Destiny is an online only first person shooter that has 3rd person perspectives along with an MMO style of play. You play the part of a "Guardian" to which you can customise and select one of three different classes, sexes and so on. Essentially a giant sphere called the traveller came to earth and nearly gave its life to fend off the "darkness" which tried to consume earth. It's saving grace was to give a small amount of power to guardians (you and fellow players) in order to fend off the darkness which has returned but to also travel to different planets to do the same there.

The first thing to say is that in typical Bungie style, the graphics and scenery to this game are truly stunning, in many ways it does remind me of playing halo, probably because of the space connection and the fact that several of the vehicles and weapons do have a halo-esk look and feel about them, some may disagree with me on that but it is my personal opinion. Everything starts back at a place called the tower, which is where players gather to trade, upgrade and indeed interact with others and is the sole 3rd person perspective area of the game, from here you can then go to your ship (you get one early on which looks pretty basic but it does nothing more or less than any other ship in the game as ships are purely a vanity item. You only really see them during loading screens).

4.0 out of 5 stars Its a shooter Jim, and its just as we know it. 4 Feb. 2015
Platform for Display:PlayStation4|Edition:Standard Edition
I am coming at this from a slightly unusual angle, in that despite being an Xbox and XB360 gamer before jumping ship this generation, I never really bought into the Halo franchise. I didn't like the 'feel' of the guns, and found Masterchief uniquely bland. Every new title I bought, and every one left me underwhelmed.
To be honest, if I hadn't been given Destiny as an xmas gift, I would never have tried it as the idea of another Bungie Sci-Fi shooter left me cold.

How wrong I would have been, and how glad I am that Santa got me a copy!!

Firstly, I think it fair to say that Bungie have not recreated Halo, but rather this game owes its existence almost entirely to the Mass Effect franchise. Craft design, environments, class and level up systems, FMV sequences, soundtrack/score- its all eerily familiar territory. But what isn't here are the annoying overheat mechanics, and ropey squad AI.

The character development is handled nicely- on each planet, several missions are available, along with free roaming where you pick up non story mini missions that go towards your experience and ability trees. So if the only story mission available is suicide for anyone less than a level 12, and you are level 10, you can just go rogue and have great fun blasting the bad guys for giggles until your level is such that you stand a chance of furthering the story.

The choice of classes, armor and weaponry is impressive, the ability to generate a speeder bike (in all but name) almost anywhere and jet about is tremendous fun, and the FPS control system really is as slick as it gets.
