It is Borderlands with armor upgrades.  That is the best way I can describe it. It is an ok game but it is nothing people haven't seen before. There is a lot of go fetch and go kill quests in between the main story line just like any standard mmo. Flying from planet to planet is cinematic and really disappointing.  The public events they have is pretty much like Guild Wars 2 which is pretty disappointing.  Having only 3 professions at launch is disheartening. The story is pretty good but Bungie has always told good stories. I don't see the need for multiplayer because it just gets in the way of making this a good single player game. Still on the fence about cancelling my pre-order but I wouldn't personally go out and buy a special edition of this game. I'm not sure it will be worth it in the long haul.

Interesting, this exact problem is what I feared for this game. Either way, if they decide to release it on PC I'll probably pick it up, because why not. I'm not going to buy a "next gen" console made from parts from yesteryear to play it though, especially if it's like every other open world shooter out there. Time will tell what Bungie can do with Destiny, but it better have a good release or we will end up with another Defiance here.

If it doesn't come to PC I won't even be looking at it. I don't know how ppl can play a fps game without a keyboard and mouse. If it is like what you are saying it is. I would love to play it.

It's going to be a great game, but for some like myself expectations are through the roof and it just will never live up to what I've pictured. I played the alpha and watched beta, I can tell this is a game that I will be done playing in 3 weeks if I were to purchase it. It's a good game still, but for me it's just not going to live up to the hype.

Next-Gen consoles support mouse and keyboard.....

 

I personally find the game to be fantastic. It is like Halo evolved to a solid all around experience. Strikes (Group finder missions) are challanging and fun. The pvp is engaging and visceral. I am having a blast personally. Sure, it is nothing that hasn't been done before, but it is well done in every aspect.

Yeah I would stay you are right. It will not take long to finish the story and all you will be left doing is doing a bunch of fedex quests and get into some pvp if that is what you like to do. Other than that i think this game will be short lived for most. You finish the game and set it aside until the dust starts to accumulate on the box.

I played it for the first time yesterday and had quite a different experience.

I found it Halo online. I only reached level five due to doing a lot of exploration and spending time just wandering around. Mobs were very much Halo style and the AI also seemed straight from Halo.

What I did like was the variety of weapons, though I only discovered three different types, Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle and Hand Cannon... I did find multiples of each that had their own characteristics.. i.e.. faster fire rate but low damage etc. Think COD weapons.

The events were as you say straight from GW2, which isn't a bad thing for me, casual and easy to get into.

The story line was good enough as it had a few tough encounters that you couldn't just run into blindly. I needed to use cover etc. I also like the fact that if you went exploring the same map you could find elite mobs that were of an obvious higher level and ripped you apart... bit like early Everquest, though I am not in any way comparing this to EQ :)

I was a tad disappointed with the Character advancement side. Once you level and get experience I had to spend it on the next skill in line rather than save points towards a different type of skill. Much prefer a choice.

On a whole though I have to say I found it an enjoyable game that for a console is a breath of fresh air. Felt like a user friendly MMORPG.

And also it is still Beta remember :)

Well I guess I would disagree. To me this was Halo on steroids! You have a lot of halo, some borderlands and some mmo aspects. Not sure about the "fetch quest" but I got to level cap ran the story as far as the beta allowed, did the open quest area, grouped up and did devils layer and not once did I have to "fetch" anything. I had to kill some guys and collect items from them, I had to investigate certain areas, but "fetch" nope not true.

 

Devils layer was intense from the beginning to the end.  Epic battle after epic battle.  The difficulty was there I do think the boss battles last a little too long though.  Just going around and looking at all the items you can get (mmo aspect) from armour, guns, mounts, ships, emblems ect ect the customization looks to be plentiful.  This was a beta that showed us less than half the game (capped at level 8) I have not had this much fun in a shooter/rpg in a long time.  Can't wait for it's release.  

I am sure there will be people who will love this game but for me personally the game has no heart and soul to it. I f you think it was Halo on steroid then please give me Halo 5 Guardians instead. I would rather have the real thing.

I doubt players were expecting anything different from this title. I wasn't.

Single player console games have more freedom than this MMO. it is sad how the word MMO has become equivalent of 'restrictive' both on PC and console while single players games are getting bigger and offer more freedom to players.

Hahaha Halo 5 is a joke. There is no Halo without Bungie. Halo Wars was made by 343 industries and sucked. Halo 4 same developer and it was just Call of Halo.

Hmmm. I guess opinions really do differ. I thought Halo 4 was the best one since the first Halo, and I put many hours into Halo Wars as well, was one of the only good console RTS games out there!

Unfortunately, as a Halo fan, I have to agree. Halo 4 story was tolerable, but the gameplay just was as good as 3. Destiny has the smooth gameplay of Halo that I loved.

Ah I didn't think about that. I was always far more into the online component of the Halo games, I don't think I have done a campaign in since 3.

What's really disappointing to me is the MMO community and this view of new games. Does something have to be completely new with never seen before elements to be enjoyed? Can we not just enjoy a game for what it is based on it's own merits rather then comparing it with every gods-damned game that came before it? 

 

It's like a game comes out, has a quest hub and people say "well, fuck this game... been there done that, I'm out" and move on. Holy Jebus fucking christ on a pogo-stick people... is this what we've become? I read these forums everyday and actual quake and shutter for the developers. There is no way to make people happy. I mean... at all. 

 

I'm a fan of movies and comics. I can't tell you how many times I see a movie and based on the fact that every plot has been done to death, I can kinda figure out where the story is going. Does that mean I don't enjoy the movie? Nope. It absolutely doesn't. I watch the movie and judge it for what it is. If I enjoy it, I enjoy it. Same goes with comic books. I read comics all the time that recycle things like crazy over and over. I still enjoy them. 

 

What I'm saying is that I personally can enjoy the shit outta a game, even if it's a clone of another game as long as it keeps me interested. I think the sad fact is that a lot of you flat out hate the genre and just don't want to admit it.

I'm actually sitting here at work because I cant wait to finish to have another go.

Reason = because its just like a lot of other games I have already played. Loved Halo, this game plays the same.

Love FPS games, this plays like one.

Love exploration, found plenty to do so far.

Love a tough game, hmm not so tough but there are tough mobs I have came across and I am hoping once it's released we will see more hidden mobs etc.

I'm a fan of movies and comics. I can't tell you how many times I see a movie and based on the fact that every plot has been done to death, I can kinda figure out where the story is going. Does that mean I don't enjoy the movie? Nope. It absolutely doesn't. I watch the movie and judge it for what it is. If I enjoy it, I enjoy it. Same goes with comic books. I read comics all the time that recycle things like crazy over and over. I still enjoy them. 

 

What I'm saying is that I personally can enjoy the shit outta a game, even if it's a clone of another game as long as it keeps me interested. I think the sad fact is that a lot of you flat out hate the genre and just don't want to admit it. 

You are well within your right to like a game others don't like. I don't see a problem here or why you are angry at people for not being okay with recycled game design? If we truly hated the genre we wouldn't be playing other games in the genre either.

I just don't understand the point of this rant. Of course not everyone is going to like one game.

Originally posted by ThomasN7 It is Borderlands with armor upgrades.  That is the best way I can describe it. It is an ok game but it is nothing people haven't seen before. There is a lot of go fetch and go kill quests in between the main story line just like any standard mmo. Flying from planet to planet is cinematic and really disappointing.  The public events they have is pretty much like Guild Wars 2 which is pretty disappointing.  Having only 3 professions at launch is disheartening. The story is pretty good but Bungie has always told good stories. I don't see the need for multiplayer because it just gets in the way of making this a good single player game. Still on the fence about cancelling my pre-order but I wouldn't personally go out and buy a special edition of this game. I'm not sure it will be worth it in the long haul.
What's really disappointing to me is the MMO community and this view of new games. Does something have to be completely new with never seen before elements to be enjoyed? Can we not just enjoy a game for what it is based on it's own merits rather then comparing it with every gods-damned game that came before it? 

 

It's like a game comes out, has a quest hub and people say "well, fuck this game... been there done that, I'm out" and move on.

I wouldn't let a handful of cynics get you down. Because literally that's all there is on this site at least; 5 or 6 people who shit on everything. It just seems like a lot more because they all chime in on just about every thread that allows them to post something negative. The actual majority around here is fairly positive.

I can count the number of actual gamers here on one hand.
