A good addition to the Destiny 2 package.

A DLC that locks main game content? Yes, it exists, and it’s called Curse of Osiris. If you have the main game but not the DLC it has locked content that was previously accessible to you. Now locked behind a DLC paywall: Prestige Strikes, Prestige Raids, Trials, and the Platinum Trophy / 1000 Gamerscore. This is content you already paid for with the main game. The introduction of the DLC stole all of this away from base game players. Whether this is an ‘inventive’ way to push a DLC purchase or just a mishap, it’s a slap in the face to all Destiny 2 players and divides the player base. $20 is way too pricy for a 2 hour story and tiny new area. When a full game is $60, a $20 DLC should be one third the size, not one tenth.

A DLC that as is, is up there with House of Wolves as the worst Destiny add-on to date. It's a stop-gap solution meant to spackle some of the game's cracks, and the real coat of paint hasn't quite come yet.

A distinctly unambitious expansion that adds nothing meaningful to the parent game except a very short, and mostly dull, new story campaign.

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.

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.

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris is ultimately more Destiny 2 for those who want it, and that would be fine if it wasn't stuffed with so much squandered potential. For its asking price, there's no reason not to expect more from this first expansion. The story missions range from okay to insultingly dull, and the one truly interesting concept that Bungie introduces -- the Infinite Forest -- ends up being little more than a tedious shooting gallery. The most frustrating part of all this is that the developer has been here before, and it still insists on repeating the same mistakes all over again.

All I can really say is that Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris is sufficient for someone like me, an admittedly casual Destiny player. I've found it worth the price of admission, and satisfying once consumed.

Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris was wholly underwhelming, and I hope very much that Bungie steps their game up for the second expansion.

A short and easy story, dull assaults, boring multiplayer maps and a small social space. That means that The Curse of Osiris could have been great, but as it is, it's far from achieving that.

Gorgeous visuals and shiny new loot fail to make up for a short, underwhelming story which completely fails to take advantage of a potentially amazing Infinite Forest. Light on both content and innovation, Curse of Osiris is a disappointing first expansion.

"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.

Full of repetition, "Curse of Osiris" feels like a step back for "Destiny 2."

Don't buy Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris, and stop playing Destiny 2 until it gets a really thorough overhaul. This is my advice to you, and it comes from the heart.

Curse of Osiris expansion has a good story, but with repetitive missions, a small planet with few activities plus two new maps for crucible, weapons, Strike and Raid missions, at last we could say it's more of the same.

Curse of Osiris is a step back on the narrative level and a it has been very coward on the gameplay level. Great artistic style, new weapons and a new raid is what saves this expansion from being a disaster. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-ldb4'); });

Curse of Osiris landed in Destiny 2 with a thud. Its campaign and story are a bust, its new content is mixed and buggy at best, and it does nothing to address the community's loud cries for fixes to the endgame. The few redeeming features are its more challenging and varied Adventures, and the Raid Lair's puzzles and tough boss battle.

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.

Curse of Osiris continues to shine in both gameplay and presentation with its new Raid Lair content being some of the best we've seen.  However, a short campaign, and Mercury being so small with a sheer lack of activities to do, make completing the quests for new weapons and gear a bit repetitive.

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris has an excellent new raid and an interesting campaign, but is severely lacking in meaningful content and plagued by a host of larger issues that have yet to be addressed.
