    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.

    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.

    It's destiny

    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.

    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.

    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.

    HALO-THE MMO

    not surprising given it's Bungie. Solid mechanics, if a little too steeped in the lore to explain exactly what missions you should tackle next (not surprising given it's Bungie). I enjoy it though. Do patrols if you need Glimmer. The lore seems a little vague and...full of itself. It doesn't really pay off for me as much as I think it should, or as much as it thinks it should.

    This is a review for the "Destiny: Collection" game for Xbox One. Great game and worth the money if you like games that take more time to complete (you definitely get your $ worth). Excellent if you play with others. At first, the game is great whether you are playing alone or with others. However, it begins to feel dull and slow after playing for sometime by yourself.

    This collection is a great way to get into the world of Destiny. I had never played Destiny before. This collection allowed me to jump right in. As far as the actual gameplay goes the story is a little hollow and jumbled together but still fun to play. It's nice to not to have to play against other players online and work together unlike most FPS today.

    A Good Send-Off

    The Destiny Collection is not only the best way for new players to experience Destiny, but also for veterans who are finally switching from the 360 and PS3 to the One and PS4, as every DLC ever is included. Destiny has had many ups and downs, but was an overall good game, and this is the best way to jump right in.

    The best value to start playing Destiny

    This is a great value if you don't own Destiny yet or if you didn't buy The Taken King DLC and need it in addition to the Rise of Iron DLC recently released. It still has some of the same old Destiny problems but it seems the developers at least are done making terrible decisions at the expense of the established players.

    Comes with all Destiny content (base game on disc, DLC code included for extra content) - if you want to play Destiny this is the best way to do it. Keep in mind the disc is required for play, though, so if you don't want to pop the disc in all the time you might want to go for the digital version instead.

    The game looks great, not being able to play the whole game solo is annoying. Also side quests like looking for dead ghosts and golden chest is not explained unless you have read a guide is also bothersome. Getting all the dlc's and the taken king is great however

    Bought this almost after a year It came out and man this must of been the most confusing game ever. I didn’t really understand if. Part 2 is our now, and so much better. I would say skip this one and just go into Destiny 2

    Great Bundle to Jump into Destiny or Catch back up

    I've owned Destiny since release and keep going back to play it. I took a break for a while, but when I saw this bundle I decided to jump back in because it was the cheapest way for me to get Taken King and Rise of Iron.

    Though it was hard to find the Xbox game section in store they had the best price of anyone else. Game works well. I’m satisfied with the extra expansion packs because I originally only had the regular game

    I received this for Christmas and haven't played very far into the game yet. But the gameplay is good and the story mode is interesting so far. The additional games are not on the disc and must be downloaded.

    I got the expansion thinking that I could start where the old game left off. Unfortunately I played the old game on the PS4 and have to start from the beginning on XBox. It's still fun the second time.

    After Bungie has gone through their phase of trying to charge for everything, playing this a second go around has been fun. Stopped playing Destiny 2 and went back to the original.
