An Honest Review on Destiny (for the X Box One)
Destiny, an FPS futuristic video game available on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC was officially released on Tuesday September 9, 2014. Costing 500 million dollars to make, this video game currently holds the record for being the most expensive game to make – before this came out, GTA5 held that record. It has also been said that it cost more to make than the ever so popular Hollywood film “Avatar.” With all that being said, it better be a kick butt game …
So is it? Was the game worth all that hype? Was it worth standing in line at midnight? Here’s my honest review on Destiny for the X box one version…
It’s fun! Hands down, I honestly believe this game is up there with Halo. With this FPS, you travel to distant worlds in order to fight against the darkness and the fallen. You’re placed 500 years into the future and you have no idea what happened.
You have a choice between three characters:
Each class has their own abilities and different ways of doing things.
The hunter once prowled the wastelands with his/her eyes on the price. The hunter excels in close combat kills with the dagger.
Titans are pretty cool too – they build the Wall and went above and beyond to defend it. Now, they stand in the same place, protecting the area. The Titan is a tank who can use ever weapon, but they are also capable of protecting their friends. The titan has an impressive array of defensive and offensive skills they can use.
The purpose of the Warlock is still a mystery, but they are eager to discover the truth and will go above and beyond to do so. They have some pretty powerful magical attacks!
In order to find your favorite class, you should personally try each one of them, then go from there.
I personally love how big the game is! It is one of the biggest game on the X box one and has so many different planets to travel to, not to mention the fact that it has a ton of new missions to do. Literally, there are hundreds of different missions. Yes, in the beginning, the enemies may get a bit boring, but as with any game, as it progresses, the enemies will become more of a challenge.
I also like the PVP aspect behind the game – who doesn’t like a little bit of PVP here and there? Honestly, I’ve been playing the game since day one and don’t think it is ever going to get boring. If it kept its hooks in me for hours, then Bungie obviously did something right with it.
Why do I enjoy the multiplayer experience so much? It’s fun and has different forms of play from competitive PVP to Co-Op. PvP is exciting and there’s even a reward loop!
The game may be hard for the average gamer, but in my opinion, that is perfectly fine, because challenges is what makes games fun.
As for the controls, they’re super easy to use. I found they are a lot like the Halo controls. It goes without saying, Bungie knows how to make their FPS games and they obviously know how to make the game controllable for the players.
The music is epic, like any other Bungie game on the market. I found that it is a lot like halo, but even better (I never thought I’d say something was better than Halo). The SFX is also amazing and isn’t over powering, like it is on most games. As far as the graphics goes, to date, Destiny was the most expensive game to make and it’s on the X box one, of course they’re great!
As for comparisons, I’d have to say it is unlike any other on the market. I normally do not say this, but I recommend buying it over renting it, because if you were to rent it, it’d be a big tease.
Many of my friends have said that it is similar to Borderlands, however, I don’t really see that, besides the loot based gear system. I believe it has a more traditional MMO core than what people are giving it credit for. It has the same structure to major MMOs, like World of Warcraft. With the stores, faction heads and quest givers, there’s no denying the fact that this video game is built more like an MMO. It’s an honest attempt to weld WoW and Halo.
If you like to travel open worlds and do what you want, but you like FPS at the same time and you love games that allow you to customize your character and gives you the ability to find and upgrade armor and weapons, then yes, this game is for you. This game definitely stands out from the crowd.
