Destiny 2 

 

You might think that since Destiny 1 failed so abysmally that we would pay no attention to the sequel. If you did think that then you were obviously wrong considering here we are. Day one Destiny 2 clocks in at around 31GB, which is no small amount of space. For those asking “isn’t Destiny 2 a FPS game?” Yes, yes it is, however Destiny 2 is a considerably more tame FPS compared to its counterpart-made by Activision - Call Of Duty. Destiny 2 is also an online only game, so watch your ISP charges, this is disappointing as it has a good story that you can play solo but you have to connect with Bungie servers in order to open the game.

The graphics in Destiny 2 are much better than they were in Destiny 1. Everything is so much brighter and less gloom and doom despite the story being gloomy in the beginning. Fair warning when you get precision kills on the cabal some unspecified liquid flies out of their helmet, but the cabal still has his head and the liquid comes out of what we call the Caballs which is how the cabal arrive in the first mission. Destiny 2 also has a nice soundtrack, but is a shame that all you can hear is gunfire when playing Destiny 2 in battle. Some of the only times that you can hear the music is when you are on the menu or when you are flying into a location.

Destiny 2 has you pick one of 3 classes: Warlock, Titan, and Hunter. Each of these classes has sub-classes - now if you don’t want spoilers then this is as far as you go - three per class they are as follow: Titan = Sentinel, Striker, and Sunbreaker, Hunter = Arcstrider, Gunslinger, and Nightstallker, and last but not least Warlock = Dawnblade, Voidwalker, and Stormcaller. I chose the tanky Titan, and in the beta gameplay we have on our channel I am good with the Striker. I was disappointed at the fact that I had to unlock the Striker and the Sunbreaker sub-classes, however the Sentinel grew on me. The Titan feels like Captain America, you can throw shields at your enemies, I know so original.

The story of Destiny 2 I found to be quite interesting. The story Destiny 2 is about you as one of the “Guardians” losing your “Light” which is how they explained your ability to revive at most times. The ‘Light” is replaced by a new system “Power” which is an average of your overall gear. My biggest problem with Destiny 2 that you have to beat the story in order to get a sparrow, which is like a speeder if you have seen Star Wars VI Return of The Jedi, this makes it so slow to get anywhere in a decent matter of time.

It took me at least 15 hours to do the straight campaign, which may not seem like much but the game has so much more. You have 4 planets that you can explore and do side quests on, tons of adventures, lost sector, and much more on the planets. Now I will be honest in order to gear up for the review I used 2 of the known loot caves and one of my own but I won’t have it being patched on me so I won’t divulge details. I also did public events on my favorite planet and are good old Earth in the EDZ or European Dead Zone. Overall Destiny 2 has many pros and cons such as the bandwidth needed as a con and the more tame FPS as a pro, once we get a streaming device Destiny 2 is a definite candidate, and for those wondering yes I did buy Destiny 2 myself.
