Destiny 2 Reviews
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
The next time I can sucker a friend or co-worker into playing Destiny with me, the first thing I’ll tell them to buy is the Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack, and I’ll run them through the Grasp of Avarice dungeon. Not because it’ll earn them Gjallarhorn — the series’ most famous weapon — but because it’s the perfect showcase of how special Destiny can be when Bungie’s own passion shines through.
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.
If you want a shooter that gives you more activities--and guns--than you know what to do with, Destiny 2 is your game.
Destiny 2 is a vast improvement over the original Destiny. The shooting is still top-notch, Bungie has crafted grand worlds to explore, the environments are simply beautiful, and the delivery of the game's story is much better. The game still falters in when it comes to satisfying endgame progression and it's missing some standard MMO features. All in all though, Destiny 2 is a damned good MMO time, no subscription fee required.
Destiny 2 is an incredibly competent shooter that lacks a strong identity.
Destiny 2 has renewed my faith in Bungie, the series as a whole, and is easily what the first Destiny should've been as it fulfills on everything that it originally seemed it would be and more.
Destiny 2 commits a lot of the same sins as its father, but it succeeded in doing something the original never did -- make roaming around the open world fun and rewarding. It still has a lot of room to evolve with expansions and major updates, but the future is looking brighter than it once was.
Destiny 2 is a fantastic new beginning for one of the most popular online shooters out there, and I can't wait to see how it grows and evolves over the coming months and years.
Destiny 2 is a very continuist game, but that does not mean that it is bad. Thanks to a well paced campaign mode, a progression system from the MMORPG genre and a very polished style, Destiny 2 is as addictive and entertaining as it can be.

Destiny 2 is a perfect evolution of the original´s concept. Campaign is solid and full of CG sequences, the new activities, progression system and raid complete a unique experience between FPS and MMO. And Bungie brings the best gunplay back.

While there's still room for improvement, and for this universe to live up to its full potential, Destiny 2 makes undeniable progress, and reinforces the idea that this is a series we'll be playing for at least an entire decade, when all is said and done.
