Destiny worth getting?

    I played the beta some time ago, but I didn't play it too long. I was wondering, since it's out, is it as good as the hype leading up to it was? I am hearing some lackluster reviews came out for it and I don't know if I'll purchase it yet. What do you all suggest? Buy now? Wait a few months?

    I'm holding out for the price drop myself. Guess we'll see how they handle DLC

    I didn't like it an hour in but I've come around. Been thinking about this a bit. Here's the thing, they are trying to break into some new territory here. Most shooters draw a line between story, which has a lot of cutscenes and multiplayer, which is about getting you in and shooting stuff as soon as possible. Destiny is trying to blur those lines in a way that hasn't been done a whole lot and people who like either of thoese extremes aren't going to be happy. A solo story person wants a lot more explanation, but nobody wants to wait out a bunch of cutscenes they have already seen because it's new for a coop partner.  

     

    There is story, and a rich world but it's best explored solo and the game supports that with lore, with going back to explore for loot chests and rack up bounties. It just doesn't feed it to you the way we're used to getting it. They strike a good balance. Borderlands did a better job of micro cutscenese for atmosphere and driving story through audio only and scripted game elements so that people who wanted to watch could watch and people who had seen it could keep blowing crap up but that came at a cost. When you teammed up with random people you felt a little disconnected. They might fly across the map or drop in and drop out. It was a bit of an anti-social multi-player experience.  

     

    I've been playing with docta09 and the game is about 10x better that way. Yet I still had a good time this morning going back through and exploring as described above. I also played my first challenge (can't remember what they are called) and wow that was cool. It did feel like it had two endings but it allowed you to tough it out by not making you start all the way over when everyone died.  Can't imagine what the 6 player ones are like. 

     

    Yes it has elements that feel like borderlands and like halo, maybe a lot of elements that feel like Halo yes it can be improved. Yes I think I'll be playing this for a few months solid. It is deep. I feel like I'm only scratching the surface so far.

    I'm a little further in and I take some of this back. There are some lengthy (and good) cutscenes and no way to skip past them. The enemies are starting to get a lot more varied. There are three different so far and I think a 4th in stuff I haven't gotten to yet. If you do coop online you really need a mic. There isn't a way to "vote" which mission you do next. So you might have different ideas about what to go after but you're pretty much at the whim of the party leader.  

     

    Still not regretting my day 1 purchase. I've only done it about 4 times in the last 6 years. ME3, Deadspace 2, Halo Reach, Halo 4. Haven't regretted any of them. Destiny isn't my favorite out of that crowd but I suspect it will keep me coming back longer than any of them with the exception of ME3.

    Played the PC demo and thought it was meh....It really feels like they reworked some of the Halo mechanics and visuals into this game. It just didn't feel all that different. Just my opinion on the demo, although reading CZ's review made my trigger finger itch... a little.

    Yeah, his review helped quite a bit. I really liked the beta for the small amount of time I played. I might eventually get it, I jsut hope my friends pick it up as well.

    That last bit is what I would wait for. I don't have any friends with a PS4 at all which is why I got it at launch anyway, but you definately want friends to play it with.

    The problem I have is hitting the wall on some of the elements I need to upgrade the armor. If this was a true MMO game that requires you to grind and grind for hours on end, then I'd be okay with it. However, I think it needs to be taken on a different approach when it comes to consoles.

     

    A player can only replay a mission so many times before it becomes really boring and a waste of a game.

     

    Yes, playing with actual friends, not randoms does make the game better. At the same time, I dont mind gaming with randoms.

     

    Is the game worth? Yes because it has great gunplay and looks beautiful. Also, no because you'll get to a point of boredom once you hit the wall where you can no longer upgrade your armor because of the lack of elements.
