Gorgeous guns, a glittering universe, and a great port. Destiny 2 is an endgame away from true excellence.
Destiny 2 is a blast out of the gate thanks to its excellent co-op shooter gameplay and strong storytelling in the campaign.
Bigger and better - but there's not enough genuinely new for Destiny 2 to achieve greatness.
Evolved beyond what anyone imagined, Destiny 2 realises the FPS-RPG dream with a richness, warmth, and player-minded benevolence that needs to be played to be truly understood.
Despite a disappointing story campaign this is a notably improved sequel, whose endless loops of addiction feel far more honest and rewarding than the first game.
A riveting campaign adventure that ably transitions into a cyclical game of progression, cooperation, and competition
Destiny 2 is very similar to the original, but a variety of tweaks and additions make it a far better experience.
As an overall product, Destiny 2 is an incredible feat.
This is clearly a high point, the highest since The Taken King launched nearly two years ago. It's a red-carpet welcome for new players and a slightly bittersweet payoff for those of us who've been there from the start.
