Destiny is a game that has been majorly hyped up over the last year, and it's release has stirred up a lot of mixed feelings. Understandably so, when the model Bungie used to create the game was highly ambitious and difficult to pull off. Mixing multiple play styles and genres, from First Person Shooter, Hack and Slash fighter, Role Playing Game, and Massively Multiplayer Online templates they have created a highly unique game.
While this model is not in itself flawed, the execution and capability of hardware makes this a very difficult thing to make a really great game. Gameplay appears solid at first, but unfortunately grows highly repetitive and stale fairly quickly. I am a story driven gamer, and multiplayer for me means co-operative play. Destiny definitely does it's best to deliver co-operative play. It's easy to jump into the game and play with your friends. It rewards you for working together, and punishes you for abandoning each other.
I did not play the multiplayer versus Crucible, because it's just not my kind of game to play versus on. All in all, there are a lot of things to cover on this so I decided to do a podcast covering all of the pros and cons of the game. But, if you don't wish to listen, here's the final verdict:
I give Destiny a 6/10, with plenty of room for improvement with DLC.
