      Great Game!

      I would highly recommend Destiny 2 to any gamer because it has a magnificent storyline that allows you to delve deep into the characters and conflict, and also provides great graphics. Destiny 2 overall is a great game for a very nice price. The storyline of Destiny 2 correlates to the story of the first Destiny. Although the enemy races have not changed, the enemies that you come into contact with have a back-story, and are very fun to go against. The story starts off with allowing you to know the feel of the game, and choose your character and what you want to represent. As the game progresses, the enemies get harder, and loot is easier to access. The storyline has a main line, and then you have the side quests and patrol missions, which help you get certain loot. Take for example the Rat King pistol that you have to receive by doing quests. In order to get the Rat King, you have to do strikes, which take quite a bit of time to do and complete. Once done, you have an exotic weapon that affects the damage you do to enemies. In my opinion I love going to different planets and moons in Destiny 2, and seeing how they depict how each planet and moon looks. Another very interesting thing about Destiny 2 is that they come up with storylines all the time, and make them as Downloadable Contents (DLC) for people to play with. DLC’s come out very often, and are jam packed with a bunch of amazing guns, planets, and outfits. One thing that I am concerned about, however, is the way the exotic quests, and quest in general come about. I applaud Destiny 2 for trying to make the game as diverse as possible by giving different people different quests, but it is hard to acquire a quest that you would like. I also feel that when you acquire a quest, it is difficult to find people to do it with. Take again, for example, the Rat King. You have to complete the Nightfall Strike in under I believe 6 minutes. The thing is, however, you have to have other people with the same Rat King quest. If you are a solo gamer and have no intentions to play with others, it will be quite hard for you to do certain quest and also get certain loot. Raids require at most 6 people, and are quite tough if you have anything under 5 people. The catch is, raids give you extraordinary gear and loot. So, if you end up not being able to do Raids or Strikes, you fall back on powerful gear and loot. Overall, the storyline and everything associated with it is exceptionally well for a good price. The graphics of Destiny 2 are amazing. Compared to the first Destiny, Destiny 2 has amazing graphics. When on PC, you can also change the graphics from low to ultra, and depending on your computer, there are more options for that. I feel the best graphics is either on the PC or PS4. The PS4 has amazing graphics for Destiny 2, it is very clear and you can change the options, as well. The price of Destiny 2 does not end at $60, however. You have in-game micro transactions like DLCs and buying a currency called Silver. Some people argue that DLCs and buying Silver are a waste of time, but Destiny 2 does not force you to buy those things. The DLCs are if you would like to continue with the story, or a completely different story from the original story. If you would not like to purchase the DLCs, you can still do Raids, Strikes, and multiplayer. The micro transaction, Silver, is also very much not needed. If you want a cool looking ship, new dances, shaders, guns, or armor, then you can go to get Silver to get that stuff. They do not force you to buy anything else, so I personally think Destiny 2 is perfect for the price they have presented. Destiny 2 is definitely a game to get if you want to play with your friends or even random people! I recommend getting the DLCs associated with Destiny 2 as well to make it an even better experience.

      Great Sequel to my Favorite Game

      I'm going to assume that readers of this review have read other reviews that explain the objectives and mechanics of this game in greater detail, and stick just making comparisons to the original Destiny game. In a nutshell: The gameplay feels identical with regard to control response, button layout, etc. The storyline of the game is much easier to understand and follow in D2 than in D1. The visuals in D2 are even richer and more varied than in D1, which IMO had great visuals to begin with. A lot of the Player vs Enemy combat sequences seem to have more enemies attacking at any given time, with more waves of enemies to fight, resulting in much longer battles and more player "deaths". Not better or worse than D1, just different. Without giving away any spoiler details, I'll just say that the one Raid currently available is more similar in length and complexity to Crota's End (meaning: shorter and less complex) than to the other three raids in D1. Up to you whether you think that's good or bad, or irrelevant. The Raid has a lot of fun parts that require a lot of interaction within the team, overall I give it a thumbs-up. The one area of the game I am not thrilled with at this point is the "loot system". This is actually two separate issues: 1) As anyone familiar with the game knows, playing the game rewards you with "loot": gear that increases your Light level, which increases your character's ability to inflict and withstand damage. The problem is, in D2, once you get to about 270 light (out of a possible 350), most of the loot you receive gives you gear that is BELOW the Light level you are already at. To be fair, I haven't done a lot of research on YouTube, Reddit or elsewhere yet to see if there are more effective ways to level up. But as of now, it seems like grinding hours of Strikes and Crucible in D2 will not raise my light significantly. 2) the Loot System has gotten more complicated. In addition to weapons, armor, ships, sparrows, emblems and shaders, loot now includes weapon and armor mods, each of which can be applied to a single piece of gear a single time. Shaders can now be applied to weapons and ships, in addition to armor, but each shader is a single-use item, and can only be applied to a single piece of gear. After hours of grinding, you end up with a much larger and more complex inventory of items to sort through. OK if you're a dedicated gamer, Not so appealing to the casual gamer. On the overall i really enjoy this game, but unless i find ways of raising my light level more efficiently so that I have a hope of remaining competitive in events where light level is a major factor, this game might not hold my interest for three years like D1 did.

      So hopped on the hype train and pre-ordered D2 because it looked like Bungie actually learned from 3 years of D1 disaster. They we're adding in vehicles, the vanguard would show up in missions, new enemies, and there would finally be a story. Didn't quite pan out the way i thought. There is a tank which is fun, but it only shows up in 2 missions, and the only other vehicle besides your sparrow is a few pikes here and there...and I guess there was that one interceptor in that one mission. But at least the Zavala, Cayde ,and Ikora show up in missions right? Ya the first one and then couple more but only for dialogue. Put away your dreams of fighting along side the vanguard Guardian, it won't happen here. There's one new enemy, yep the dogs. And other than the Cabal and Fallen which they put time into, they other enemies are the same as they ever were...and still just stand there waiting to be shot. There is a story and for the most part it's decent. The main antagonist is actually pretty interesting, albeit short lived. PVP is terrible. Ask anyone, they sucked out what fun there was for balance...which it isn't. Iron Banner was boring and didn't drop IB items most of the time. And to do the challenge you had to complete 50-60 matches to get...wait for it...an emblem. Strikes for the most part are pretty good. The raid didn't ship until a week after launch and doesn't give you anything special. So bottom line, after about a 1-1/2 months of casual play, I'm at max power level and have no reason to play. And everyone else in the clan has gone back to Overwatch, Borderlands 2, Halo 5...basically anything that's fun. So if you want this game, buy it on sale, and push Bungie to make better games.

      I had high hopes for Destiny 2, I really did. While I really liked Destiny 1, even preordered it, it ended up being a pretty big let down. I ended up just letting my son take over and at least it kept him occupied a lot longer than me. With Destiny 2, I log in the second day after release only to find almost everyone around me max level and almost max power. I try doing some crucibles at level 9, big mistake. There is absolutely no match making in destiny whatsoever, your ragtag team of level 10s WILL go against full level 20 premades almost every time. I get that i'm behind and naturally I shouldn't be trying pvp this early on, but I honestly didn't think after just 2 days everyone and their mother would be running around in full epics and exotics. Even with the infamous loot cave back in the day it took a while to get solid gear and levels, with Destiny 2 they pretty much took away all motivation to play since you're pretty much handed everything you need after only a handful of playtime.

      This game is good, but if you've played the first Destiny you've played this game as well. Mechanics are solid, gameplay is smooth, shooting is great, story is okay. It feels like what Destiny should've been, that's not to say this game is bad but if you were expecting a whole lot of "new" besides a new story don't get your hopes up. I didn't intend to purchase this game but it was on such a discount that I couldn't say no (under $10 USD). For the price I paid I've already gotten my money's worth but for full price or even half price you're getting Destiny with all the improvements you originally wanted in the original. It's the same kind of setup as well, you buy the base game here and then fork over $9.99 or $19.99 for the expansion packs. I don't actually know the price because I have no intention of purchasing the expansion packs. TL;DR If you loved Destiny, this game will feel and play the same way, purchase it. If you thought Destiny was great but need some story, purchase it. If you thought Destiny was alright but needed MUCH more, don't purchase it until it comes down in price with the expansion packs.

      Fun, But Still the Grind

      I have put in about 70 hours already and have had a lot of fun... but now I am to the point where it has become a very slow grind to get to a higher light level and it is just not as much fun anymore. It is the same as when I got to the end of D1 where I was maxed out and had nothing else to play for. The campaign is better than the first in that it has a real story to follow and you get actual exotic rewards for progressing. It is also not so long that it becomes too much. The PvP is where I spend most of my time now. I like the 4v4 (I am a huge CoD pvp fan and this gets it closer). Also, I like that auto rifles are now useful, while maintaining some balance with the others. There are still OP weapons that will likely be nerfed at some point, but overall I like the new pvp. Clans have helped, but this is still a game that is best played with a few friends. The most enjoyable activities (Trials/Raid/Nightfall) still require being in a party with a people, so if you are a casual gamer you will miss out on some fun stuff. All told, I like the game and think it is different enough to make it exciting for a while. It 's just not that new exciting game that D1 was, so the longevity of it is not going to be there for some people.

      IN GAME CURRENCY, pay to win, 1 less planet

      This is always the controversy with sequels... Do with stick with what worked before and just release more of the same? Or do we change how the game plays, like call of duty, and many other games, even GTA if you're old enough to have had a PS1. Basically they didn't change anything, maybe some adjustments with your skill tree, and using the gun or armour doesn't help level it up like it did before. And they made the fatal flaw of adding IN GAME CURRENCY! trade your real money for fake money to try and keep up with your friends, while this preys on the wallets of younger people, and people without the mental capacity to know that you should really not ever use real money for fake money, unless it's something that you only plan to do once, on the game that is your absolute favorite. to be objective, this game has the potential to be played long enough to make it worth it... I just wish they would NOT have done the in game currency, and maybe would've made just a little bit more changes to the game to make it different than the first. If you rent it, and love it, then buy it. but if you don't have a lot of disposable income you might want to at least play a friends copy or rent it, just try b4 U buy somehow

      Great Early to Mid Game Content

      Like Destiny 1, this game offers great mechanics and loot. Unlike Destiny 1, there's actually a story (which I'm not too invested in, but better than nothing), better loot drop system to make the grind more enjoyable and bearable, multiple public events that are displayed on the map rather than rely on timers (and the potential to turn it into a heroic event), really fun strikes, and a bigger map. You only have access to 4 planets and there are still boundaries/invisible walls, but there's a lot more depth to each map. It really pays to explore. Also, you don't feel like you're replaying each mission or strike as it offers new environments. Lastly, the ability to modify your weapons/armor/ghost/ships/speeders adds a good variety to how your character plays. As of now, I'm pretty hopeful to what Destiny 2 has to offer and am looking forward to the end game content. Bottom line, if you're playing for solo campaign, this might be a pass unless you enjoy being the random fill for strikes and raids or strictly enjoy PvP. If you're playing with dedicated friends, this is definitely a fun game to pick up.
