Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris Reviews
A good addition to the Destiny 2 package.
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.
The storytelling lacks punch, the new play spaces aren't used to their full potential, and the endgame loop still has problems, but Curse of Osiris has more under the hood than first appears
Destiny 2's first expansion Curse of Osiris could've been a unique opportunity to tell an exciting story around a legendary figure of the lore, but instead added a disappointing amount of new content and bland story. It still is worth some praise on the front of couple of area's artistic direction, the new raid and some weapons, but even as a big fan of Destiny, it's hard for me to recommend buying this expansion.
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.
There's a fair amount of fun to be had in Curse of Osiris.
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.
Curse of Osiris offers little as far as content is concerned. The brief campaign is forgettable and treated more like hold-over content than a proper full expansion. The only real redeeming feature about Curse of Osiris are the Raid Lairs.
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.
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.

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.
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.

A lacklustre first offering that gets by on a few star turns and the same stirling gunplay.
Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris - not a bad expansion, which once again reminds us that the Bungie artists are one of the most talented in the industry. Shooting elemets are still great, but the reuse of content, a story full of monstrous dialogues and lack of motivation to play further after going through all the activities can disappoint old fans and players who have been waiting for new content for a long time. Now we can only hope that the real epic in the scale of The Taken King lies ahead...

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.
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.
The Curse of Osiris does not bring what Destiny 2 needs and does not solve most of the problems that the game presents. The new Raid and the campaign modes are interesting but could be better inserted into the game universe, and all the new content is not enough to be worth the price of the expansion.

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.
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 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.
