Destiny

I want to apologize for not posting a review last week. A lot has been going on but fingers crossed it’s all better now! I’ve had time to play Destiny. Oh man, I’ve been waiting FOREVER to write this review. I may be late but here I go! A heads up, this review may contain spoilers.

 

This review has been in the making for a while now, since I heard about the game I knew this would be a keeper. I’m going to say right now, this is in the top 5 games. I feel like the game is worth the money and will be worth it even more with the seasonal pass.

 

The storyline is different but has an eerie Halo feel. It’s almost like the same Company…Oh they did!! Well, It starts off with you behind dead and be revived by your Ghost, voiced by Peter Dinklage. I won’t lie, During the Beta I was super excited to hear his voice. I feel it was perfect for a Ghost! As you go on you discover more things about what had happened during the period you were dead.  The storyline is very detailed and doesn’t stray away at any point. It sticks with the story and character.  My one major complaint right now is that once you finished the story, you’re kind of stuck since there is nothing released yet. Now the game feels like a major grind.

 

Once you finish the story, like I said above. The game turns into a grind, especially if you don’t get to 20. You can chose to do patrols, which basically means  running around an area you have been before killing, collecting and transmitting data over and over again. I found them to be fun, then I didn’t have to grind them out for a level. Public events also grant a lot of experience as well. it’s just a matter of being there when they  happen. You can chose to do PvP for exp at any point in the story line. I’m all for PvP but my one down side is that they don’t scale down. If you’re a level 13 you may be paired with a Level 25. You can expect to get a little owned in that match.

 

You can unlock new spaceships and sparrows various ways.  Pre order gave you a new Sparrow, a red one. I like it except for I can’t take a hit to save my life on it. One wrong turn and it’s bye bye Birdie! To me, right now spaceship mods mean nothing in the sense of Purpose. They all just feel like a visual improvement. I’m hoping they add something where modifications actually mean something other then Oh hey my ship is prettier than yours.

 

Weapons have the same feel as they do in Halo and other Bungie Games. I haven’t noticed that you have to arch anything except grenades, and that’s OK to me.  It’s fun to look up at the sky, throw your grenades and watch them destroy your enemy. I do wish the cool down wasn’t as long though. But that’s OK. Gives me more time to kick butt and take names later.

 

For a console game, I found it to be visually pleasing. Some time if you turn your camera wrong, it goes out of focus on certain parts. For example when you’re in the Tower and you’re trying to see your character’s face, it becomes super blurry and all you see if two bright blue orbs glowing in the sea of fuzzy….Won’t lie, that kind of creeped me out the first time it happened.

 

Even with all of the problems I have personally with the game. This is one of the best comebacks I’ve seen from Bungie. It brought back old memories from Halo and well and made new ones.  My, honest, only problem is that cut scenes aren’t skipable. That’s annoying when You’ve already played through the story and want to go back through to help a friend out or even for the experience. Once you’re done with the quest, there you are stuck watching a cut scene that you’ve seen before. It’s annoying, but eh.

 

I give this game happily a 10/10. Just because I found parts of this game annoying or even unattractive doesn’t mean that you guys will. This has to be one of my favorite games for 2014. It has a high replay value as you can experience it as different classes. The community for the most part seems to be kind and polite. They help out when they can and they really work well together as a team.
