The Warmind expansion is a change in gear from the usual. Warmind brings the promised grind from Bungie, but rewards the player for their efforts. People thought that the previous expansions were too simple, and they were right, so Bungie kicked it in the other direction and now we have gotten what we have asked for, even if it feels like it's too difficult. The balance between effort and reward is now a right of passage and something that is respectful instead of expected. Warmind is a good way for Bungie to begin to right the ship of their D2 game and make it closer to what was promised at the beginning of this Destiny journey.

Aside from the incorporated change that made previously limp exotics actually fun to use, it's clear that Bungie has a lot of work ahead of them.

Bungie promised big things for Destiny 2's newest DLC, Warmind, and has only partially delivered. Par for the course, really.

Destiny 2: Warmind is a step up from its last expansion, but still suffers feels repetitive.

By all means, buy Warmind, you will probably have a good time. But know that all you are getting is more of the same and searching for something new will only leave you unsatisfied.

Warmind is Destiny 2 at its very core - grandiose and beautiful but ultimately hollow and insignificant with a plot that's there just so it doesn't get fined. It may have some post-game stuff but there's too much repetition and bad world-building to truly get invested.

Like its predecessors, Destiny 2: Warmind struggles to justify its price tag thanks to a throwaway campaign and some incredibly tired mission design. The quality of Destiny's core gameplay is still clear to see and the expansion as a whole is dotted with a handful of high points, but it ultimately just feels like the game is purposefully treading water until September's big arrival -- and that's simply not good enough.

Warmind does little to save the end-game appeal of Destiny 2

Warmind is a new DLC that, without taking Escalation Protocol into consideration, does not bring anything new to the game. A 4 hour campaign with a dull story are not enough for the price of this DLC.

Destiny 2: Warmind is geared toward high-level players, but it offers little in the way of motivation while you grind levels to get to the endgame.

Destiny 2's second expansion brings a wasted story, a confusing and tedious narrative, an immense variety of recycled content, and once again shows questionable decisions by the developer. Players who are still interested in the game can let go of this expansion and wait for the next one that will surely come in the future.

When it's all said and done Warmind left me feeling mixed.

Warmind is a big let-down that threatens to wipe out any sort of enthusiasm for the game that might be left. After all, if this is what you have to look forward to, why keep playing?

Warmind brings back mechanics from Destiny 1 that players were after, but still doesn't deliver completely in terms of interesting, varied content. Still, it is more of a win than a loss for Guardians, if you are playing on PS4.

A predictably inessential expansion that adds nothing anybody ever asked for and completely fails to address the points fans have been complaining about for months.

Unfair rewards and poor balancing make Warmind seem like a step back.

A good effort but doesn't manages to do enought to right the wrongs of Destiny 2 nor the previous DLC.

A good, but not a great DLC for Destiny 2. Very few reasons here to return to the Bungie's online FPS.

Destiny 2 does have an identity once again, a solid bedrock upon which to build its future. But whatever Bungie has planned, it's going to need to be far sturdier than its latest collection of recycled content, uneven new events and a meagre amount of PVP content.
