A graphical display unprecedented intended for next-generation consoles, with gameplay and a class system that promises to revolutionize the genre. The creators of this new title, are the same as the famous Halo franchise, so it sure is a great success. In Destiny, we will select one of the classes available for combat, each with their own abilities and advantages, and get into the battlefield in multiplayer matches where only the most skilled survive.
This limited edition includes lots of content, both physical and digital. The highlight of this edition is that it incorporates the season pass of Destiny, which will give us access to all the downloadable content and DLC that will be launched, as the two future expansion: Destiny: The darkness of the abyss and Destiny: House Wolfs. It also includes the Field Guide "Ammunition and weapons" with detailed information of all the weapons, equipment and armor we have available in Destiny.
As ingame content, we have access to a special skin for the Spectrum class, a unique emblem and an exclusively variant player ship that we will cause fear to our enemies. Without any doubt, Destiny is destined to be one of the most impressive releases of 2014, featuring a graphic and gameplay level unprecedented in Next Gen.
Destiny Limited Edition is also available on PS4.
Personally I’ve found the experience to be a visceral and engaging one. I’m a huge fan of the mythical sci-fi fusion and have eaten up the planetary environments -- on a visual level -- like they’re going out of fashion (though I can’t really buy cars being on Venus, Bungie).
Bungie’s new game is not as gigantic or revolutionary as that hype may have led some to believe. In fact, it has several features that feel like missteps or problems. But that doesn’t change the fact that the more I play it, the more I love it.
Destiny is a confident, solid, sometimes stunningly beautiful shooter with RPG mechanics that add longevity and depth, and the beginnings of what could be an incredible online universe. But it feels like the tip of the glacier, and I’m not sure it’s a good thing to be more excited about what a game might one day be, than what it is actually is.
It's not quite the epic space-faring journey we were expecting, but for the time being, we'll sit back and enjoy the ride.
Destiny stays quite enjoyable as long as it has something new to offer, but this ends rather soon leaving us with a well-crafted repetitive shooter and a disappointing story. The lacklustre competitive multiplayer doesn't help either, so it won't probably be what will keep players attached to the game. Here's hoping Bungie will keep the game relevant by constantly adding new events that won't simply be fighting more of the same enemies in the same environments.
Destiny feels like the key elements of an FPS and an MMO gently resting shoulder to shoulder, instead of being fused together in a truly creative way. It plays and looks great, and offers many, many hours of entertainment to anyone okay with repeating the same tasks, but it isn’t exactly the game-changing science fiction epic we felt it was aspiring to.
A multiplayer shooter that cobbles together elements of massively multiplayer games but overlooks the lessons developers of such games learned many years ago.
