Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris Reviews
Sadly, Destiny 2 : Curse of Osiris offers a really short and unsatisfying campaign. The story is unengaging and the whole content feels a bit weak, even if the new raid deserves to be tried.

It's disappointing because the foundation is there. I can't help but feel that there just wasn't enough time to fully flesh this expansion out.
Destiny 2 and its expansions are all tough to review for this very reason. I've got some frustrations with Curse of Osiris–mostly with the lackluster campaign and unvaried patrol space—but it has largely pulled me back in to my traditional weekly ritual of completing various milestones in Destiny 2. How long that will last remains to be seen, but the immediate future looks promising.
Curse of Osiris is a thin first DLC for Destiny 2, uninspired and filled with playful boredom - apart from the new Mini-Raid.

A pretty disappointing piece of DLC. We hope that Bungie will learn the lesson and make a better game in the future.

Full of repetition, "Curse of Osiris" feels like a step back for "Destiny 2."
Destiny 2's first substantial piece of DLC may look pretty, but it's a surface fix that misses the mark on truly pushing the series forward.
Curse of Osiris is a great example of how not to make a paid DLC. The product looks like it was stitched together from some previously discarded elements. It should be free, especially since the developers promised more frequent content updates this time around. Bungie should learn from creators of The Division (a great free DLC) or Horizon (great paid The Frozen Wilds).

For better or worse, Curse of Osiris is more of the same.
A good addition to the Destiny 2 package.
"Curse of Osiris" looked like a promising story expansion for Destiny 2. Sadly, except the artists, no one in Bungie knows what they should do, so we got an exceptionally lousy DLC with a price tag much too high.

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris feels like rushed DLC that was never expected to fix what the glaring problems with the base game. Rather than attempt anything, the lazy additions come off as what would in any other game be added in a free content patch, a skeletal selection of missions and events that are both minuscule in scope and forgettable at the same time.
The Curse of Osiris lives on highs and lows: on the one hand the quality of the contents, on the other the quantity, too small to represent a consistent introduction capable of shifting the balance.

Whether this will suffice to keep players engaged until the next expansion hits remains to be seen. I think it's safe to assume the potential for randomised rolls on weapons and perks will be ameliorated by Bungie's heavy-handed approach to the weapons system for the sake of striking a balance between PvE and PvP.
Soon to be mentioned in a "not working as intended" faux apology, Destiny 2's Curse of Osiris DLC is just bad. It offers nothing of substance and wastes all of its good ideas while asking you to pay $20. Skip it if you value your sanity, raid lair or no raid lair.
Aside from small additions such as new ‘Masterworks' variations of weapons being available and the requisite cosmetic items, players can also tweak the look of their armor sets by completing tasks in-game or take part in a kind of ‘raid-within-a-raid' which again just reuses the environment from the first major raid.
In the same year we got great expansions like The Frozen Wilds for Horizon Zero Dawn, Defiant Honor for Nioh and In The Name of the Tsar for Battlefield 1, it's amazing how dull Destiny 2 – Expansion I: Curse of Osiris is.
Destiny 2 may well be worth playing again in the future, but as it stands, you’re better off waiting for the inevitable Taken King–style year two refresh.
Curse Of Osiris Is very fun on the first playthrough, however playing through the story on a second or third character can be very tiresome and not very fun. The raid is the biggest addition to this DLC and is the best part, if you haven't already bought the season pass and are on the fence just think, did I enjoy Crota's End? If the answer is yes then I highly recommend this DLC. If you played Destiny 2 for its story, then this DLC will disappoint you and I can't recommend it to you.
Seeing how Bungie approached the Destiny 2 expansion matter, I have low expectations from the next DLC that should arrive in the coming months and you should too.
