    Eh. Fun but not great.

    So my review is only average because while playing this by the time I had reached the end I found that I really did not care at all about the story or what was going on in the slightest. The entire story was just not engrossing at all. Every time, of the very few times, the main villain was shown I had zero interest at all in what he was saying and was just waiting for him to shut up his stupid monologues. The actual gameplay is still very well done and very fun, with the class variety being a blast. The public events are well done and offer a good variety of challenge, especially with the heroic modes that can be triggered by doing certain conditions. Now on to the actual public events. The dialog for them is an absolute nightmare. The game is built around the idea that players are going to be doing the same events OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER, yet they all have a single dialog chain that occurs when they trigger, so you get to hear the exact same words to the point of insanity. Each event should have 30, 40, or heck 100 different possible dialog chains that can occur so you do not feel like you are hearing the same thing so many times that it drives you crazy. When I played the drop rate of items and character growth was at a reasonable pace. Not too fast, and not too slow, with a good amount of rare items appearing. For the would I recommend this to a friend. This fits very much into the... maybe category. For my friends that love grinding and loot hunting ad infinitum I would recommend it. For the rest I would definitely not recommend it.

    Fun game, but not worth $60

    Went into this game not knowing anything. Haven't played the first one, so I wasn't sure what to expect. PROS: Game is well optimized. Gameplay is smooth. CONS: Lack of content, the endgame is nonexistent. The social aspect of the game of the game is nonexistent, you have to use Bungie's forum/third party sites to get groups (aka Fireteams) going. There is no public chat in the game. There's a player hub where you can see other players...but you cannot talk to them. Well, you technically can, but you have to adjust a setting that by default is disabled. From what I've read, some quality of life features that they implemented in the first Destiny did not make over to this Destiny. Theyv'e removed features that was in the first game just to implement it as microtransactions. The game has been dumbed down. They're trying so hard to balance the game around PvP (which runs on a P2P network, where other players have DDoS other players), that it's affecting how fun the game is. Meh.

    Such a disappointment

    Long time gamer of Destiny 1. Excited for Destiny 2. after 2-3 weeks, no more content to play...the game had such promise but ended up being such a disappointment. other than that. The game plays and looks great on PC!! especially playing in 4K ;) I would definitely prefer playing on PC over console any day. Another negative part of play on PC is that some times matchmaking takes a long time in any game mode. Regardless of how much i feel the base game disappointed me. After many updates (that should've already been in the game to begin with) it's getting better. And becoming more like the game i enjoyed over the years. For anyone that hasn't played the game, i would still recommend it. For those that put in hundreds and/or thousands of hours on Desinty 1. I would not recommend until the Forsaken update releases.

    Honestly, I really don't understand all the hype around this game. It's decent, don't get me wrong. It just feels generic and bland though. I mean, just in the first couple levels it became obvious that textures and models are recycled constantly. Is there more than 1 model of a junk car in this game? The junk cars are everywhere, but they are all IDENTICAL. I've played indie titles with way more polish and variety than Destiny. Also, it's WAY too easy of a game, and there is no difficulty setting at all. It's one difficulty level for everyone. All those complaints aside though, I have to concede that the shooting mechanics are good and the game-play feels tight. There might be a good game here, but of all the millions spent in the budget for this game, I think the lion's share went to marketing and voice-acting (which isn't even great). It is what it is.

    Destiny 2 has the fluid movement/combat one would expect from a AAA game and decently impressive visuals. However, once the shock and awe of playing a new game are over and you have reached max level, there is not much to do. You have a plethora of side quests, treasue hunts, and public events to hold you for a time but these become repetitive. You end up falling into the rut of logging in once a week and completing the weekly quests. There is not much depth to the game and that becomes apparent fast. I enjoy games where you get gear and upgrade said gear/ get new gear. However, Destiny 2 misses the mark on quality content to sustatin a thriving player base and as stated in the review summary. Real old, real fast.

    Lack of content

    I have over 1000hrs in Destiny. Completed every raid and have gone flawless multiple times on PS4 and PC. The enemies are re-skinned versions of D1 enemies. The subclasses are re-skinned with the exception of sentinel and dawnblade. Arc strider is basically bladedancer. The end games is boring. No random rolls on guns. No reason to play after you beat the game. PVP is broken. Players get killed behind walls/corners constantly and also get spawn killed a lot. Look it up on YouTube. $59.99 plus $20 for each DLC is theft. This game should not be full price. Buy this game in a year when it'll come with the DLC.

    The storyline is great, but the game itself is only slightly different from the original Destiny. PvP is still 6v6 and you need to have friends that play for a group, aka fireteam, to do the hardest content to get the best gear. There is only a LFG option for the lesser content. Only buy if you loved the original Destiny. Other then that you'll get bored waiting to for weekly get quests and a weekend only merchant for better gear.

    It's certainly a fun game, especially if you have people you know in real life to play with (there's no match making). But it certainly doesn't seem to live up to the hype of it all. The of game has a bunch of weird things, like glitches with graphical settings, and the quality of the in game voice chat is atrocious. I'll keep playing it but I don't think I'm going to sink much time into it after the story.

    A great shooter, a mediocre MMO.

    The shooting mechanics and environments in Destiny 2 are second to none. The other half of the game though is a dime a dozen with nothing special about it. Very fun to play, but the story is far too confusing and the leveling is nothing compared to any other MMO. I know they call this game a "shared world shooter" but it seems like they only do that because it doesn't stack up to a real shared world game.

    As someone that didn't play the first one, I had fun for a bit with this game until eventually things started to get a little tedious. I can't speak for how the game is now after all the updates and expansions, but at the beginning it was definitely not something that held my interest for more than a couple weeks.

    This is a seriously tight game. The graphics are top notch on PC. The gun play is tight and responsive. The main issue seems to be people go in expecting an eternal game where you can log in every day for years. This is not that game. You'll easily get 30 plus hours out of it before exhausting the content available at launch... then put it down and come back for the next DLC.

    The game is fun, the shooting mechanics are some of the best I've ever played. The problem is, like the original Destiny release, there is/was no content to back it up at the game's release. Now, almost a year later we are getting drip fed content, and some of the more nagging elements are slowly being fixed and patched out.

    Destiny 2 isn’t better then it’s predecessor but I can tell you one thing, it’s definetly better on PC then console. If you have a monitor to take advantage of the uncapped refresh rates, you won’t be disappointed. Aiming is also better. Wish the game wasn’t so broken I would rate it higher but can’t knock the game play or graphics.

    The game is fun but don't expect to grind in this version. If you liked grinding for gear perk rolls in D1 those days are gone. Most of the best cosmetic stuff is locked behind a loot box wall. Psychological gambling tricks remain ... slot machine sounds as the engram opens. Whee! Wish fireteams could be 4 people instead of 3.

    Destiny 2...Made some mistakes

    I'm going to give this game 3 stars for the simple fact that It wasn't made for the hardcore gamer. It was intended for the casual gamer that plays every now in then, because of the lack of content. I do believe that the new expansions will help suit this problem, so I would say give it a shot!

    Good gun play, but gets a little stale quickly

    Excellent engine, runs wonderfully. The guns feel good, but the gameplay does get stale after a while. Feels like the same handful of missions repeating over and over, and you max level out after 10-15 hours of gameplay, meaning you don't feel much progression pretty quickly. Worth a shot if you can get it on sale.

    At this point, the game is suffering similar issues as the original destiny. Lack of content. What is here is better than the first base game, and more refined. However, there are some differences between two games so do you research on the game. Great game, but not as much longevity or complexity as the first.

    I enjoyed Destiny 2 considerably. The campaign was albeit short, and there's little to do once that is finished. If you want more content after completion, you'll need to purchase the expansions. Still for the brief campaign, it was worth it at this price to play the game again on PC.

    Spoiler free* So far, this game has been a rinse/repeat of the first in the series. Much of what was in the original, is here as well. With a sprinkling of new features. You will have to buy the expansion pass if you don't want to spend even more for the individual DLCs as they release.

    Beware you need a Blizzard account to play. This will not play on Steam. For the price I paid, this was a great pickup, but doesn't include any of the DLC so it's really just the bare-bones version of Destiny 2. I'm recommending it, but not at full price.
