It's an incredibly fun game. Wish the human face options weren't so weird...but s'ok...robots ftw.

I really want to like this game. It looks pretty, moves well. But the ai in this game is not really that good. Bungie were amazing at ai. It feels like enemies retreat all the time. Me and my friends are finding it really easy. So far its not remotely lived up to the hype for us. I'm a bit disappointed.

I've been playing it all day. This game could never live up to the hype. It's mainly a grind fest. I see lots of micro-transitions coming in the near future.

The problem is as follows.

PvP is pretty mediocre. The maps are to big for 6v6. Imo after playing titanfall it feels really poorly executed. The guns don't feel great the higher you level. The loot isn't a wow factor like in say Diablo 3 or even borderlands. Imo it doesn't do any one thing great. Cinematic stroywise halo is far far better. If you want an MMO there the new wow expansion and to be honest I'm now much more looking forward to borderlands in a month or so. The game feels like it had great ideas but failed to execute on any of them well. The best thing about the game so far is Marty odonells music. And they lost him and all. I am already thinking of trading this in for forza horizon 2. The story and side missions are already boring me. On the moon I cleared a bunker and then before I even left they respawned. It kills any sense of accomplishment. I know respawns are common in mmos. But in destiny it feels all so forced. This is bungies low point in the last 15 years.

I played the beta and that confirmed my worries that I would hate the game

tbh I don't do online gaming at all and was getting destiny because apparently you can play missions on your own but I just hated everything about the beta that I would not even want to bother playing it on my own.

the movements were not so good, the AI was bad and my friend got his today and he said nothing has changed from the beta and the AI is still bad.

graphically the game is so bland I could not believe it, I expected to be WOW but there is not 1 part in this game that looks WOW or impressive textures are bad in most areas too.
I know a lot will like it but personally I would not get this if it was £5 in the bargain bin..hell if I had playstation plus and this was one of the free games I would not even download it

My impression too. I've been playing with the sniper rifle...and it frustrates me to no end how they seem to notice that my crosshairs are on them even when i'm crouched in a bush 100yds away. They seem to sense it and just hide. Even on the Hard mode for story missions, they still just hide despite the hard mode description saying they would be more aggressive. As a lvl 4 warlock I was plinking down lvl 7 vagrants/knights with ease with a scout rifle. I like that they reward the headshot mechanic...but I feel like that if a lvl 4 is approaching a lvl 7...the lvl 7 shouldn't be running and hiding. Had they rushed me, I would've been gibbed.

I came in with zero expectations and still couldn't bring myself to keep playing after about 10 hours. It's all just.. empty, feels akin some iOS game.

I played the hell out of the Alpha, but once Beta came, i stopped after 1 hour and then deleted it, its that boring to me.

For a game that is a action RPG with classes (other than Warlock and Titan its not good), it takes ages for you to be able to use the main class special move, if not, its just a plain shooter with almost empty world with some decent loot going on...and the loot wasent all that good either, especially when you see everyone running around with just 3 classes and the gear looks for the most part, the same for each class.

Tbh, i dont see what the big attraction to this game is, i just dont.

in your opinion maybe but you don't speak for everyone!

After spending some more time with it and playing through some instances, my opinion has somewhat changed. I do think the storyline leaves something to be desired, but the instances are challenging and fun. The AI makes more sense once you get to later levels. Simply put, the enemies are actually rather smart. They wont charge you in small numbers, they'll stick to cover. Small packs of elites at later levels will stick to cover and try to flank you. However, if they have a sizable numeric advantage, then they'll charge all over your shiny metal ass.

I do agree the item system is a touch lack luster at the moment...really the only distinction is Titans are all metal, hunters have a cape, and warlocks have a hooded trench coat. Is it groundbreaking? nah, but its fun and a nice change of pace from other FPS.
