    I'm not big on first-person shooters, or multiplayer games, and when I first played the demo of this game, I wasn't really into it. However, I kept hearing good things so when the collection came out, I decided to snap it up. I don't regret it at all - this is a great game with a fascinating narrative world, and really enjoyable to play. The multiplayer isn't overly intrusive - you still basically get to do your own thing, but there'll be other people just running around in the same world as you, doing their own thing. You can join with them in fire teams, or just stick yourself as I do. A few things - the game itself doesn't give you a lot of help in the beginning, so make sure to consult the many websites and guides out there. - get the app for your phone - it gives you a lot of the extra details, lets you read up on the history of the world etc with the grimoire cards you accumulate along the way. - I would recommend not inputting the codes for the expansions straight away - do the early missions and build up some familiarity with the game. Otherwise you'll get dropped in at level 40, and have a map full of missions to try and choose from. Some sites offer a chronological list of the missions and I would follow these.

    I purchased this game to play with my sister. We grew up in the N64/PS One and PS2/XBox era and with that there was a lot of couch co-op. These days, we live in separate cities and still reminisce on those days of our childhood and teen years. It's nice we can play games online, but this isn't my favorite type of game. It's a first person shooter, RPG. I'm very much used to single player games with more of a narrative and this game kinda bores me. The story isn't too strong and many of the missions feel repetitive. Some of the later expansions improve on that. My sister has beaten the game and states that the last expansion was really awesome, but I don't feel it. I really only play this game with my sister and her husband. However, just because this isn't my type of game doesn't mean I can't see it's strengths for those that flock to this. There are a lot of awesome things going on here. The vehicles feel organic, the shooting feels intuitive, the power ups are awesome to play with and do not get old, and the armor you can get --some of the best in any RPG. The story, though lacking is kinda cool. It's dark with a lot of mysterious elements, but the way its interlaced feels like an after thought.

    Finally feels complete

    I pre-ordered and played this game at launch. I even played it in beta, but it wasn't until now that this game felt like it was worth the buy. After a couple hours playing at launch and in beta, I felt that I hadn't received my money's worth. I finished the story mode within a day and a half of moderate play around my 9-5 job. The online mode was ridiculously unbalanced and I felt that I didn't even stand a chance in crucible or raids so I avoided them altogether. Without the exclusive gear from crucible or raids, or the friends to play in the raids for that matter, I was stuck at a low light level and got sucked into the loop of repetitive side quests and bounties that lacked any sort of "feel of accomplishment". It wasn't until one of my friends started playing again, now 3 years later that I was able to advance, and actually enjoy the other aspects of the game that I felt shut off from before. Destiny finally feels complete with Destiny - The Collection. It feels the way it should have when I spent $64.95 on the pre-order back in 2013.

    I'm not really much into first person shooters, nor playing deathmatch games. That said, I like Destiny. I think Destiny is a good game for the a casual player, because its not TOO difficult to get through. The creature AI isn't the brightest in most cases, making them fairly easy to pick off without getting yourself killed. Many times, if you're in a dungeon type area with doorways, the monsters won't bother to come through the doors. Lots of times, too, a monster can be staring you down, just out of their weopon range and you can pick them off with a sniper rifle; a lot of times their buddies won't even run for cover and you can pick them off too. There are separate areas for deathmatch arenas away from the quest area if you're into that. This is an ONLINE ONLY game. You MUST be connected to the internet to play. The quest areas will have other players roaming around as well, and you can team up to kill stronger creatures, or just do your own thing.

    This is the collectors edition of Destiny that includes the original vanilla game and all DLC/Expansion packs currently available. The game is very fun and addictive. The lore is incredible though you will have to do some reading online to get the full story. I have been playing Destiny since an Alpha tester back in 2014. As someone with almost 1100 hrs invested in this game I highly recommend it. I purchased the Collectors edition so that my son could play along with me as well on his own PS4. He loves it and so does his friends who have all decided to jump on at this point. For the $34.99 price tag this deal cant be beat! Unless you have a gamers reward club membership then its $31.99 :-)

    Picked up the game to play with an old friend. Only had it for a week i'm still playing catch up, there is an enormous amount of content available within the game. Even if you aren't a new play there are plenty of daily/weekly quests. This is a great time to buy the game it definitely has more than 60$ worth of content and replay-ability at this stage of its life cycle. The game does feel a little grindy but my little time playing i have enjoyed it more that i thought i would. This is also the first FPS i've ever actually gotten into, i don't play multiplayer competitively or ever plan to but the dungeon crawling and class system feels like a real RPG and thats what i am enjoying.

    Solo play review

    This review is for anyone considering this game as a solo play experience. The storyline is pretty standard MMO variety fair. You will level and upgrade your character to make progress. You're not going to get a deep storyline, but it's not bad for a game of this type. However, you are going to experience some game balance issues playing. Some of the missions are not designed with solo play in mind. The game isn't broken but you can expect to be frustrated and of course you will miss out on the group only aspects of the game.

    Perfect Opportunity to Jump In

    Destiny - The Collection is the perfect opportunity to buy into the game and have access to everything. Destiny is a fantastic shooter that can be played solo or with a group. When buying The Collection you receive an item that will automatically boost you to level 40. If this is your first time playing, I would highly recommend NOT using it. All of the content is fun and jumping straight to the end is a little overwhelming if you haven't done everything before it. All in all The Collection is a great value and a game everyone should play on this generation of consoles if they are a shooter fan.

    Awesome Game Play

    Destiny is probably one of the most addictive games I've played in a while. I'm head-over-heels for it! The story is very interesting, and the game play is really good about being rewarding. It gives you reason to play beyond the story and go after the multiplayer tasks. A lot of the fun is getting a group of friends together and doing a strike or playing entire teams in crucible. You can definitely play this game alone, but having a group to go all-in with you is the best. I haven't played a game that wanted me to go after every aspect like this one does. Give it a shot! It's a blast.

    I'm generally an FPS gamer, and tend to stick to one at a time. I had been playing Call of Duty games for years when my son asked for this for Christmas. After a couple weeks of him playing, I got into it. Now I cant stop. While the campaign is thin/short, it is extended dramatically by numerous quests and objectives, plus a fairly decent online multi-player complete with Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed, Domination, and other modes (although using Destiny names like Clash and Supremacy). Just played last night for a while and cant wait to play again.

    But only if you don't have the other expansions. After two years since the release of destiny they finally get it right with this version. No more weird light level requirements once you hit lv 20 and better gear to use during campaign without always having to go on raids for the best equipment . This game is worth the $40 price tag. Just finished the main story and started expansion one the dark below. This comes with the dark below, house of wolves , taken king, and rise of Iron giving you plenty of gameplay for your $$$

    Over all I really like the game. As a single player experience it's just average. But when you and your friends go into a huge battle with the AI it really is a fun experience. The graphics for its age are still pretty impressive. The frame rates never seem to dip. Just a constant 30fps. After a few sessions the game starts to feel repetitive. It's only saving grace is all the different locations. Overall I find destiny to be a fun and enjoyable experience. I just wish it was deeper as far as story and mission types.

    Destiny is a pretty good game. The quests can get repetitive, and I wish that there was more story to the game. But, it is a great co-op experience if you have someone to play it with. For solo players out there, I would suggest maybe looking into either buying the game for five bucks used and try it out. Then, you can always return it if you don't like the solo experience. As a solo player myself, I tend to get bored with the game, but the multiplayer is a section of the game that can be enjoyed by solo or team players.

    I bought the vanilla version of this game a couple years back and enjoyed every hour of it. I even got to endgame with the vanilla version and maxed out my character at that time (lvl 34). What kept me away from Destiny for all these years was the nasty business marketing plan Bungie/Activision had for all the outcoming DLC listed at a ridiculous price! I have to say that this is probably the best time to purchase this game and dive back into it. BOUGHT IT AT $24.99 WITH $5 CERTIFICATE! WOOT!

    This game is perfect for those who are casual gamers. For some 1st person shooters there a rather steep learning curve. Not the case with this game. For some reason the handling is simple, especially for those who find it hard to aim. Also, despite the misinformation about the DLCs not working, that is simply not the case. The codes work. In conclusion, this game is a must buy for most 1st person or multiplayer gamers.

    Best 1st Person Shooter

    I have yet to land on a 1st person shooter I like more. Yes, there are some flaws with the lack of story, but overall this game's mechanics and the idea of raids, strikes and crucible (pvp) are fantastic. I think this is the closest I've seen to being complete. This game is the new benchmark for game mechanics and I think this has help other games come out with better graphics and general game play and I hope it challenges other game makers to out do Destiny.

    I waited a long time to play this game and by the time I was able to play it most people had already been playing for 2+ years but when I finally got my hands on it I understood Bungie's vision for the future of shooters and video games in general. By far one of the best games I've ever played, what it laked in first year story they more than made up for with the expansions and with this collection available all in one place nothing beats it.

    Destiny at its core is one of the best games I've played this generation. Amazing visuals and controls make this game play like a dream. Where it struggles to deliver is in its end game content. Once you make it through the available missions the game slows to a crawl. Playing with friends is a blast but it may start to wear on you that it takes a lot of grinding to progress. If you're curious, this is the best way to take a look.

    Pros - Graphics are great with no framerate drops - Gameplay is fun and addictive, moreso if you enjoy collecting loot - Will keep you busy for longer than most games - A good game to play with friends - A nice variety in skill and weapon/armor builds keeps things fresh - You can get to max light level without having to raid now Cons - Short story - Repetitive grind for loot - Matchmaking can match you with people with bad connections

    I bought this game at release and wasn't impressed due to all the launch issues. I decided to pick up the new bundle with all the extra content to give it another try. My main reason was due to Destiney 2 being announced which made me want to play it again. I am very impressed with the game now that all the issues were handled. I'm sad that it took me this long to go back to it but I highly recommend it to anyone that is on the fence.
