    not for me

    I tried this game out because they're basically handing it out for free to anyone who will take one. (PS Plus included it as a 'free' game recently, and I got three free copies from Best Buy with the purchase of other games.) It is a very pretty game, but after playing for a couple/few hours, I realized there just wasn't anything I liked about it, so I quit. The game lets you create a custom character, but then it forces you to play in first person, so you rarely even see your character. I don't like playing in first person that much anyway, but when so much of the "rewards" aspect of the game goes to customizing your character, why would they make it so you don't even see your character during most of the gameplay? This is a perplexing choice to me. If I could have chosen to play in third person, I might have liked it more. Even if all you're interested in is single-player content (like me), the game requires a connection to the server, which means that you have to have good, reliable internet, and it means that whenever the Destiny servers eventually get shut off, the game will become 100% unplayable. Probably because this game is focused on multiplayer, you're not able to customize the difficulty. I reached a point where I couldn't get past a certain enemy, and that's where I stopped to realize that I wasn't enjoying the game at all and quit. If I'd been able to set it to an easier difficulty setting, maybe I'd have pressed on farther. My brother loves Destiny, so it obviously works for some people, but it didn't work for me. The fact that they're giving the game away like Halloween candy to try to convince people to buy the expansions tells me I'm not the only one who feels this way about it. If you're not super-duper into FPS wild blasty games (methodical sniping was not an option at all for any of the content that I got through), think hard about paying any money for this game.

    Wtf?

    Very strange game. Playing through felt like a bad essay. The story was nearly pointless. Very very short game. The coop play does not make it more fun. Pros: 1. great guns, melee combat is really fun. You can pretty much knife the whole group of enemies if you want. 2. Over and over, the game made my stomach drop when dropping far distances. It felt like I was on a roller coaster and uncharted is the only other video game that has done that. 3. Graphics are good... 4. Safe game for kids & teens and I think it would be great for a kid who is just starting on video games. Granted, this game feels like a bad coop Ratchet & Clank. 5. Having dogs rush me on nearly every mission was quite repetitive and almost ruined this game for me.... though this game is not the worst and not the best. Far Cry Primal is the worst game. Cons: 1. The video game Bloodborne is better because the coop system works better and the enemies are sometimes hard enough to require help, they add small details to the game, and most of the bosses are unique. 2. this game leaves a lot to be desired. It was obviously rushed and didn't have the loving details that some games like Bloodborne have It is unfortunate that the game has good graphics but such a poor plotline. 3. I'm not a veteran gamer but this game makes me question the taste of a lot of my friends... really don't understand the appeal when there are so many other games that make coop fantastic. I can't recommend bloodborne enough, especially for coop!! Get it!!

    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.

    From the Perspective of a Solo Player

    Just to be very clear, I did not play with other people during my time with the game. I only played this game by myself. From that standpoint, I wouldn't recommend Destiny 2. The controls and gunplay are really good, but the story is pretty bad, and there isn't really much going on beyond the shooting. Destiny 2 feels like a game that exists for people to hang out in rather than a game that exists for players to go on an adventure in. There is a lot of repetition that doesn't exist in other shooters that seems to exist to create a grind to go through with friends to keep playing the game even though what you're experience isn't all that great past the core shooting. If you like single player shooters, you would be much better served playing Wolfenstein 2, Doom, Prey, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and Dishonored 2.

    Gets Old Fast

    I played Destiny 1 for hundreds of hours with friends and had a great time. For the first few hours of this game, I thought they had fixed a lot of the problems from the first one, like the story and simplifying some of the weapons. But unfortunately, they went too far and this game just wasnt fun after the first few hours. Everyone in multiplayer used the same guns because only a few guns stood out as better. The campaign was good but short and after beating it, side missions really weren't worth playing. All of the extra activities were very repetitive and didnt result in anything but guns and weapons you already have. So after beating it and getting your character to a high level, there wasnt really anything to draw you in or make it fun to keep playing. The multiplayer was repetitive very quickly without enough game types to be interesting. Skip it.

    Solid Gameplay, Lack of Content

    Received Destiny 2 for free via a promo for buying another game. Game is fun with solid gameplay. Bungie, the developer, know how to make a shooter. Story is a step up from Destiny 1 and it's lack of narrative. However, it still seems lacking in content. At this point, there are 3 expansions, that I would need to buy separate, and some and game missions are locked out to me since my level is capped off at a lower value than is needed to participate in them. Getting the original version with no dlc for free is great, but I'm not willing to spend the extra money required to get access to otherwise locked content. As of this writing, the 3 expansions can be had for $60. Plus there is another annual pass that costs $35 that will cover expansions releasing in 2019

    I have complicated feelings here. The gunplay and feel of the game is top-notch, which is a credit to Bungie. That being said, I don't particularly think they learned from the problems of the first game. It seemed much easier to 100% and get all the items for this game. The classes felt balanced and I had fun playing co-op with friends. However, the lack of late-game content that isn't paywalled is a dealbreaker for me, and the raids only seem worth it if you've already got a group of guys together to play with. I'd recommend if you have guys to play with, but if you're thinking of this as a solo game, I think you're better off in your Call of Duty/Battlefield games.

    Game starts ok but there isn't enough content. Leveling is weird, you will be limited in how much you can progress per week when you hit 20 (which will happen quickly), endgame rewards are worthless, player vs player (crucible) is bad compared to Destiny 1. Google problems with Destiny 2 for a lot more detail or check out the Destiny page on Reddit. Player population dropping as people are fed up and there is nothing to do. Will be quitting as well. It's too bad as the graphics and feel of the game are great. A real step backwards from the final state of Destiny 1. A good example of why people should never pre-order games.

    Lost The Innovation And Fun

    As with almost every other game on PlayStation and Xbox all games are made safe now. No one tries to stand out and innovate their games. In the case for Destiny 2 it is more of an expansion pack of Destiny not a sequel. The campaign is meh at best and everything else is exactly the same as it was. The most change is the games user interface, it's faster and cleaner. If your looking for something new to play then try a Nintendo Switch. Especially if you've played OG Destiny since release you've already seen most of Destiny 2 already. At the core Destiny 2 is not horrible, it's just lacking any reason to want to play it.

    While your initial experience with Destiny 2 is almost sure to be a polished, fun time, it's the most loyal of players who are sure to feel truly punished by this game over time. I bought the top-tier edition with season pass at launch, and now there's...another expansion? And that expansion has a season pass? I'm sorry, but the full experience isn't worth that kind of money. If you're good with a brief, solo experience, pick up the standard edition as it's regularly available at sub $10.

    Destiny was a fun game. Destiny 2 is the same game, except it has a "2" in the title. Same enemies. Same races. Same classes. Same dull cast of characters trying to present a forgettable story. Yep. It's the same. Oh, don't forget the micro transactions and the fact that everything you can buy is never yours to own. Limited use shader, cosmetics tied to equipment you'll eventually quit using, etc Maybe the 2 comes from the revamped micro transaction experience? I don't know. This game is Destiny, too.

    I loved Destiny, it was really fun when it came out but when I realized how much content was being hold back it explained why it was so short with no story. If you wanna play a good shooter looter with story play borderlands 2. The game looks incredible but it is just not that rewarding. It has gotten better with Destiny 2 but the team has disbanded and this game won't be getting any support anytime soon.

    An FPS with a decent campaign and not much more

    Destiny has always been a shaky series. It has great shooter FPS mechanics, incredible potential for scifi fantasy lore, and great co-op and pvp. However, it is still a shell of a game when looking at the base game. It has a fun campaign on par with Titanfall 2's short but decent campaign. If you're looking for more of the same content over and over again, Destiny may be for you, but the eternal grind gets dull quickly.

    The game itself is good. However, it was on sale online and included a digital download of both expansions when you purchased the base game. Needless to say, they not only didn't give me the code for the download, but also gave the in store customer support guy a hard time when he called in to try to sort the problem out for me. Best buys customer service call center reminds me of Time Warner Cable- no service at all.

    Destiny 2 hasn't changed much from Destiny 1. I'm glad I received this game for free because it would have been a waste of any amount of money. The game really doesn't have any direction, there is a lot of grinding to level up and just wave after wave of enemies that NEVER stop! That is just rediculous! The developers put a lot of time into the visual appearance but not into the story or mechanics of the game.

    It just wasn't my taste. I prefer more strategy. This game just seemed like a run around and shoot, arcade style game. Good if you prefer that. I was very happy to have not had to experience any foul language during the short time I played it. One thing I totally abhor is the language they use in games these days. I'm prior military, I've had to endure enough of the foul talk... I sold this game after about 30 minutes of play time. Only lost 15 bucks.

    I got bored with the first game and didn't bother to finish it. Thankfully my cousin let me borrow it, This one I got because it came with spider-man and it plays the same way as the first one. Dialogue is boring and the best thing about this game is that I get to try out my strike pack ps4 controller mod on it and am very surprised it worked well with the game. In the end, skip this game.

    Combat and powers are fun, for the most part, but the absolute slog you have to go through in order to enjoy the game is far more than I am capable of handling. Add in the fact that you never truly own the whole game unless you buy every single piece of expansion, and you end up with a lackluster game. So much potential in this sequel that fell way short.

    Everything about this game feels like it was given little thought, at least to a point to where Activision felt it would cost too much. Really disappointed in this game and I hope someone from Bungie or Activision is reading this and realizes that sooner or later this whole money scheme that every major game developer is leaning on will collapse. Probably not going to play this game ever again.

    I got this game free for pre-ordering Spider-Man. I never intended to play this but decided to give it a go and to be honest I was quite bored. I don't really play well with others online. I prefer a single player experience. It felt like very other shooter out there. On the plus side it is very good looking on PS4 Pro.
