Destiny - Your Thoughts

SDLiam Avatar

Hey HUKD,

What do you think is Destiny so far?

I'm a level 8 Warlock in the Beta and have played PvP a decent amount too.

I think the game is good but also very hyped, over rated and just nothing revolutionary.

The Good:
It feels like a more mature Borderlands
The graphics are great
Enemies seem to be smart
Exploration is fun and you are rewarded for it
Solid online experience, no slow down etc

The Bad
It feels like a more mature Borderlands - yes this is here twice. This game is nothing new or revolutionary
Some guns can be lame, for example I hate the pulse guns
Only 3 player co op
PvP is weak and the announcer sounds so bored

What are your thoughts too?

Very similar to your thoughts actually. I like that the abilities I've seen so far too.

Pvp commentator is a little boring but I like the voice it reminds me of idris elba.

All in all it seems really solid to me but is certainly missing something.


I am a fan of the abilities and how there are more than just one you can activate. Like golden gun and the knife throw.

Its a nice game but can be vastly improved! However they still have time to do so and as a games tester, I can say that the final build will probably be a little different.

Personally I'm enjoying it and will probably buy it
#4
I didn't like it to start, but once you get above level 4 it starts to be enjoyable, im interested in the competitive multi-player, i missed out on the moon mission last night, but overall i will pick it up in September,

It's a Beta. Hopefully they'll improve it a little with finishing touches / redo some character voice overs.

Spent a couple of hours on the xb1 and ps4 versions last night to get the reward.

I have it pre ordered for ps4 but might change that to xbox one. The ds4 controller is just not good for this game for me. The left click run on the stick is killing me it's not right. The triggers are dam awful on the ds4 as well. The actual precision from the sticks on the ds4 in moving left right up down is stunning though and feels more precise than my xbox one controller sticks but overall it's crippling my hand/arm/etc so much so I had to stop playing.

Probably will keep ps4 preorder and maybe get the digital version of it on xb1 to split across my 2 xb1s

Not too keen. Too similar to Halo for my liking, which I didn't really like either.

I haven't played Destiny myself, but from all the trailers, I thought it looked too similar to Halo, so I'm not hyped for it at all. I only liked the first Halo game personally, and thought every single one that followed was crap.

Don't really like it, probably because I do not really understand the game.
Glimmer? So you need this to buy stuff, however best way to do so is search round boxes... which doesn't make the game fun.
Personally do not think anything is explained very well.
Cannot do well on multiplayer at all, can't kill those ships.
Seems like people are going to be VERY overpowered with armour and gun upgrades... basically the people who play it a lot will be amazing, and if you don't you haven't got a chance

I like the campaign, but hate the multiplayer already.
OP, I don't rate the graphics much to be honest

Not going to buy

disagree I've played Alpha and Beta and in both it is pretty simple to kill people in interceptors, shoot them in the head with a sniper or body. Glimmer can be made by selling stuff, doing missions, killing enemies, dismantling weapons. PVP they level the armor and weapons, Iron Banner is the game mode where those stats come into play. But I think you may have forgotten that this is a loot and upgrade kind of game, there is inevitably going to be some differences between people's gear. Gun upgrades for example do not make much difference, having literally just played with a 57 attack auto rifle and then upgraded it to 62 it made minimal difference. I hope this helps, but you are entitled to your own view :)

Its massively like Halo, But....... it has that feeling of the first one, even in the beta the music kicks in just right and the waves of enemies are not too much yet challenging. the sparrow bikes are very halo, as are the things like spider tanks.
#13
Never played Halo so can't compare
I did enjoy the Beta though and from what i saw not many glitches etc.. so hopefully a few little tweaks here n there and we should be good to go in Sept.

Wasn't overly impressed with the mouse curser instead of just toggling your stick to the next choice like in most other games.. Or having to hold down buttons until the circle was filled before the action happened (spawning your sparrow etc)


I only had a few days playing and got to Lvl 8 Titan and never tried the other two character modes, think i would have been better as the Hunter class, doubt i will use the Warlock as their defence is pretty poor compared to the other two.

overall i enjoyed the game and i can see myself buying it (maybe not on day one though?)
#14
Found it very addictive, and the Strike mission with Friends was fun. Even if it did take 2 hours...

For me to buy it, with the epic Q4 game schedule there is, there will have to be some extensive reviews showing how massive this game actually is. Too many dead ends in the Beta, Old Russia gets incredibly boring, I am worried that longevity is an issue.

And yeh, PVP was awful.
#15
Borderlands comparisons again zzzzzzzzz
#16
I'm level 8 exo hunter playing on a 360.

its a competent enough game at what it is but the hype has blown it out of all proportion people willbe moaning when it gets released, its no RPG massive online shooter, its just halo again with a rudimentary levelling system and a small hub to visit merchants and things.

it is so painfully halo, same controls, similar football robot things, same bog stranded not very scfi weapons, same enemy A.I and virtually the same design, so the grunts have a mohawk and are tall other then that they are the same meeklings best dispatched by a blow to the head, vangard things are just the elites, there are even transparent ones, those other things trall or whatever = the flood. Banshee is now a star wars speeder that can be summoned at will, its just so halo, just another halo in all but name even the music and tone of the narrative is halo.

I rather liked halo so I'll get it but they really need to muzzle the marketing department.

challenging? The only hard bits apart from the impossible crucible crap which I find boring anyway and will avoid, is the beetle tank and eyeball but even they aint hard if you just alternate between cover and shooting. Most of the time I'm just messing about exploring, I just walk up and stab most enemies its easier, saves time.
#18
When does it end by the way? Will it be up for playing until release? I've had one hard lock crash and about 7 kicks off the server since getting it friday.

finished yesterday as far as i know.. ?

It's gone from xbox live today you can't download it anymore but if you already have it you can still play it the servers are still on I was playing it earlier until about 6, the moon is locked again tho they relocked it at around 11pm yesterday.
#21
Well its 2.20am now, I went on the 360 to see if the game was still on, turned out they'd turned the beacon mini missions back on, I do hope they turn the moon missions on again tomorrow.

anyway point is its still active, its just not available to download on live anymore, at least on 360 anyway.
#22
I loved it. Couldn't get enough. Huge Halo hater here. Can't wait for it to come out. Definitely no Cod this year.
#23
Heard online moon was back last night. Although it was probably just unlocked to them that were on it originally.

Once i had gotten a good assault rifle i started to enjoy it, agree with OP that the pulse weapons need tweeking, one hit kills ruin the game

i hate the announcer on the game mode where you capture the points

I've never understood why they don't have hundreds of variations of things they can say at this point on games instead of a limited repertoire of 10 at most.

They will have to change him, how he says things for the final game as it's pretty bad

But why play a game that is trying to be Halo, It's not going to match up.

I can see destiny being the same as watchdogs, Price drop quickly.

so are you going to buy the next halo because its halo even when its not made by the same team? Do you buy all the CODs when only the Infinite Ward ones are any good just because its call of duty?

Did any tenchu fans other then me buy shinobido on ps2? I feel like I'm the only one that did, no one else seemed to have heard of it even though they claim to love tenchu and moan that the series turned rubbish, seemingly unaware that the licence was sold after wrath of heaven and shinobido was the original teams way of doing a tenchu without getting in trouble with tenchus new owners.

which is exactly what bungie have done too.

Yes i will buy the next Halo, As i like the Halo franchise, As for COD...... LOL i haven't bought that since MW2

Don't do Playstation....

I think i have answered your question's
#37
I won't be paying full price for this. I will wait until it comes down as after playing it, it reminds me of a larger Borderlands. Not overly impressed as of yet and the multiplayer is the same old same old. Reminds me of uncharted 3 multiplayer. It's a great looking game but it is not groundbreaking nor is there anything here that hasn't been done before. I would give this a current 6 or 7 out of 10. And I am a level 8 warlock.
#38
I agree as is I'd say it deserves about a 7/10 but what we see is only a small part. Don't trust reviews I'll wait for normal people to reward.
#39
It's basically Halo with a bit of Borderlands.
