Game Review: Destiny


This week’s Game review is of the recently released Bungie-developed, Activision-published, Sci-Fi FPS RPG title called Destiny.

Destiny is a beautifully built world that is easy to navigate for many first time open-world game players and a story that for a first title in a series is easy to understand follow as it slowly given to you follow through the campaign. With the choice of 3 guardian types you can pick the character that reflects your play style as The Hunter offers a strong shooter and agile speed to move around while The Titan offers a physically strong character who can receive large amounts of damage while dealing it back, The Warlock is more suited for players who want to uses the elements and fight from a distance.

Even though most game reviews put the game as a short adventure, this is far from the truth as the main story may be short but the game is built up for the long run and built for people who enjoy working away collecting and improving their characters and weaponry. The game also offer a largely competitive online multiplayer which allows you to test your loot and collect more against others online players with 4 competitive game modes.

However the game is held back by its small amount of content and short story that most typical players would start to become bored of as the weapons system isn’t that unique as it shared by games such as Borderlands. But as the saying goes "It’s quality, not quantity that counts" and Destiny achieves this with all of it features.

Overall the game is great for the fans of the RPG genre and even though most reviews are only up to the point of the ending of the campaign it was made to be played further beyond that and for that I would give Destiny an 8/10.
