    I love playing. I crave it when I'm not playing.

    You need an Xbox Live Account. I missed this. I was upset when I found out it was the only way you could play. I am anti online/group play. The game made up for it by being so much fun and the people are cool. If you like first person shooter games, this is for you!! It has aspects of a role-playing game. However, the game adapts to your playing style, within the limits of your character. For example: I am a Warlock wearing combat boots with a gigantic weapon. What can I say, I like getting in the mix. My armor is strong but, I have to keep my distance. You can play lone wolf. But, for big strikes the game will force you to go in with more than one person (strangers - if you don't have a group like me). My favorite strike so far: A few good people went in with me. We ended up in a dark room. I couldn't see anything but, red from baddies attacking me. I did what any seasoned gamer would do. I started twirling and attacking anything close by. I know my fellow mates were like, "What is she doing? Stop!!" I felt like I made a good contribution to the effort, ha! Note: If the baddies know they have you jammed up. They swarm. If you're lucky, someone will come by and lend a hand. If that kind person stays and/or more people show up, the number of baddies will grow exponentially. A short, simple patrol turned into crazy town because, one kind person decided to help me. A ship showed up and baddies jumped out. Yes, I stood there looking, “What, the..?” We got swarmed. So, more people jumped in to help. Oh, it went bad quick, fast and in a hurry. I don’t know how many people showed up, how long we were in the mix, who I saved. More importantly, who saved me. I do know, I loved every minute of it!! I am getting that gamer itch, “just a little game then, I’ll stop”.

    A departure from your standard MMO

    Now I will preface this by saying I dont have a ton of time in it just yet, but I will review what I have experienced so far. I come from a background of PC gaming exclusively and have very little experience with consoles, particularly shooters on consoles as I find it very difficult to aim with an analog stick. Unfortunately I still do with this game, however they've put a great deal of effort into making a fun MMO that can be experienced with your friends over XBox Live. The game looks great, the graphics are amazing and I look forward to becoming more used to the controls of the game. Being as this game has been out for some time now with multiple expansions, they have fortunately given new players a level boost so if you are playing with someone who has been around the game for a while, you have the opportunity to join them in their higher level missions sooner, rather than them waiting for you to level up. This is a great benefit and one I have already taken advantage of. Really my only criticism of the game isn't really the game's fault. Microsoft has said that mouse and keyboard support is coming to the XBONE but it has not yet arrived. I imagine this and many other games will become that much better once a mouse and keyboard can be used with them. I heartily recommend this game to anyone with an XBONE, especially if they have friends that already play it.

    Solid cinematic first-person, with some repetition

    The folks at Bungie have created a deeply intricate world for you to explore. Sure, sometimes things get repetitious, but all-in-all it's a solid shooter. Atmospherics are wonderfula, and the music is great. Playability is among the best... it's very easy to get accustomed to the "Destiny feel" and be disappointed when you return to other shooters. Some criticisms: - Some larger tasks (bosses) require a team of 6 players. Since the game will NOT auto select a team for your efforts, you need friends, who are ALL online together, to complete the big quests. The game will however auto-select a 3-person team for "strike playlists", but that's all the help you'll get. Why not the 6-man teams? - Some game elements are needlessly complex. There are probably 60-100 material elements that need to be collected, there are MANY different currencies with different purposes, there are buffs you have to apply before going into combat, and you'll often end up with so many complex tasks in your to-do list that it becomes overwhelming. - Traditional gamers (keyboard + mouse) will get trounced in PvP. But, nothing new there. Worthy of purchase, especially if you have friends who are on the same console.

    Destiny is the only console game that has held its replay-ability over the last two year AND STILL going strong. Destiny is the flagship games for consoles. It is by far, a MUST HAVE for ANY console player. I'm fixing to buy this as a gift and a few more for starting friends. The game is honestly the best game to come home to every night. There is so much to do in Destiny, it'll seem overwhelming at first. The economy is booming, so many quests, loot, strikes, raids, bosses, prisons, etc. Bungie is an amazing developing company that is community focused and dedicated to amaze the players. The YouTube and Twitch community is outstanding and never ceases to amaze me. Recently, the Destiny community raised over $500k to St. Judes hospital. The game is thriving like never before. Make memories, make friends, have fun.

    One thing I dislike about next gen gaming is the push for online multiplayer, and slow removal of local multiplayer. This trend has also affected the story line aspects of games. I hated Titan fall because the 'story' was clearly less important than just allowing players to blow each other up in giant mechs. I personally find it quite lazy. In Destiny these trends are still present. And at first I almost just gave up on it in general. But I decided I would play through a bit since I paid for it already. While the story lines don't have a strong presence like older games, they are well enough thought out and explained that they aren't difficult to follow if you want to. And not overbearing if you don't. It's not a bad compromise and it is exicuted well. Same goes for the 'forced' multiplayer, you're constantly seeing other players around but in most cases you don't have to interact if you don't want to. This game has done very well at appeasing many different types of gamers.

    Save your money for D2

    I'm not saying this is a bad game by any means, and with all the DLC it's a pretty good value, but... Destiny is not newcomer friendly. There are a lot of missions and activities that require you to have a high light level, which is only determined by your gear. So endless hours of grinding and hoping for better loot is what you'll have to do in order to get into some of the funner parts of the game. Even the newest update coming requires a light level of 380 with the cap being 400. I've been playing since Christmas and have not gotten to 380 yet. The other thing to consider is that Destiny 2 will be coming out this fall. The only thing that will transfer is how your character looks. So unless you really really want to play destiny, I'd save my money for the next installment, which promises to be far superior to the first game.

    Okay guardians, listen up! We all know how bungee does it. Releases different DLC's and we spend a lot of money on this game. This new DLC is a short one but a lot of cool things has been added. New worlds are open and leveling up just got easy but just for a bit lol. Anyways I totally recommend this game. Especially if you have a friend new to the destiny world. This is the game to buy because it will include all the DLC's from day one to present. So if you have buddy that recently got system, or both of you did then this is the game for you guy and girls. Keep in mind, this game is a lot more fun when you have your buddies online too and you'll need their help at some point. Totally worth it. Go get you some!!

    Played the original destiny, put in a lot of hours. First time a game made me go back to console gaming hours in a long time. The end game content was weak, so I quit. Didnt play an of the expansions, felt wrong having to pay for how the game should have been released. When I saw this, I thought it was a great value and way to catch up and go through some of the content I missed over the 12-18 months of release. You are way behind the grind buying this, but for casual gamers, this was a great value. Still suffered bad from lack of end game content, but good to see they are trying to listen to the community and improve.

    I can't tell you how much I enjoy this game. I have it on my XB360 and XB1, under 2 accounts. (Mine & Son's) The Collection has everything that game has to offer. If you are a first person shooter with an addition to increase your armor, weapons and light level. While being in a Massive Multiplayer world either being on your own working with other single players, or making and joining Fireteam (group) with old and new friends. It is a blast. This game is worth it and I highly recommend it. I been playing it for over 2 yrs and I hardly play anything else. Destiny 2 is in the near future and I know I can't wait for it.

    I originally bought this at best buy to try and use a 10% discount I had, but upon learning that 10% birthday coupon doesn't work with pre-orders...(system error) I was disappointed. Then once I got home I realized on the receipt that I was not given a code to begin playing the previous expansions as this bundle is supposed to provide. I then decided I'd just order digitally because it provided the previous expansions immediately which is th reason I wanted to buy the bundle in the first place and pre order.

    Gorgeous and fun game, though the story is a patchwork. The somewhat incoherent story of the game universe and Bungie's decision to make Xbox players wait for PS4 content were big minuses for me. I would've gotten this on day one and paid full price if not for the latter. I got the whole game and expansions for 40 bucks and that's about all I would be willing to pay for it. At the end of the day it's a fun time suck to play with friends while I wait for something better to come out.

    I bought Destiny the first day it came out originally. I was so excited and beat it and was so disappointed and angry. I vowed never to give the game any more money. Well two years later and I found the entire collection for a good price and I kept hearing people say that it was fixed and all the faults from the initial release had been fixed. I do have to admit it is much better and I really enjoy playing it again. i had forgot how beautiful the game was.

    There is so much content packed with in this game it's amazing how it got cleared for a 59.99 price tag. Each expansion was $30 when they first came out and this package includes them ALL. So much to do in rise of iron and destiny has a great community of helpful players so you will always have people to play with. Bungie adds new content every single week as far as weapons, armor, weekly missions and multiplayer etc. Great game from the opinion of a recreational gamer.

    Everything about D1 is fun and in D1 when you get a weapon they can’t nerf it anymore :) Plus you aren’t limited to once a week power ups plus the activities are so much more replayable. And for solo players it is fun whereas D2 was boring. I wish they would just add some new content to D1 and resell it as D3.

    Destiny, the Rise of Iron is an outstanding game. The only downside is that it comes with a digital code and is not loaded on the disc. I use my games on multiple stations with different xbox live gold accounts and as a result I would have to purchase this for each console I own. (24 in total) This would obviously make it a very expensive purchase. Outstanding content but I don't like the deliver. Best buy was great and exchanged the game I didn't open.

    Currently only level 15 in game however it has been a lot fun to play. PvP is definitely a challenge being a low level (even though they do a good job of stat balancing) do to the moves acquired upon leveling up to 40. Graphics are absolutely incredible but does lead to some slower load times and the initial download of the game took about 15 hours on a 20mb line. Coming from WOW this is a breathe of fresh air! Highly recommend it!

    As far as the game itself, it is a great shooter game to play. Game play is great and graphics are amazing. Story line is some what good too. In the beginning when game was first released the game lacked content as far as end game goes. Bungie appears to be taking this serious and I do believe that in a short period of time there will be plenty of game play available to keep the average gamer busy.

    I bought this after taking a hiatus from destiny after the second expansion and my friends talked me into coming back. Is it more of the same? Yes. Is it still fun? Yes. This is the complete package that lets you play as you wish and you can certainly get more than 60$ worth of value out of it with the amount of hours you can play. Just try not to ruin all of your personal relationships with the addiction that is destiny.

    After reading reviews and age recommendation for this game, we held off getting the game until our son was 10. This version of the game was great as it came with all of the add ons, that were add on purchases for the original version. Our son loves the game, but doesnt play as much as initially thought as his friends were already maxed out on the game and no longer playing as much. Timing is everything.

    Used to play Destiny for a while before the last 2 expansions. Even though my armor and weapons were pretty much obsolete, I was able to jump one of my characters straight to level 40 and still enjoy the game with friends who have almost maxed out at 400 light. It takes a bit of time to get there, but playing this game with a bunch of friends is the best way to fully enjoy the Destiny experience.
