Destiny 2 - Warmind Reviews
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.
Taken as a complete content drop, Destiny 2: Warmind, Season 3 content, and update 1.2.0 have been enough to get me playing Destiny 2 actively again and loving every moment. The new Mars patrol space is bigger and more varied than I anticipated, with plenty of secrets to keep me busy. While the brief campaign didn't do much to impress, Bungie managed to give plenty of reasons for players to log back in and continue playing. Warmind is the next step in the right direction on an ever-evolving journey.With the flight path corrected, I'm confident in Bungie's ability to really shake things up with the September expansion/update, in order to make Destiny 2 a game that players can really love again.
An abbreviated campaign is entertaining but limited in scope, while the subsequent pursuits are tailored to a satisfying if glacial curve of powering up
We can only hope that Bungie will have learned the lessons of the first Destiny and give us the things that we desire, and not just what they planned a long time ago.
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.
While Destiny 2: Warmind doesn't solve all of the title's problems, it's a refreshing change from the barren landscape the game had become prior to the expansion. Warmind gives more to do and restores the familiar itch to log in every day and complete some quests or grind missions. If you left Destiny 2 out of boredom or a lack of content, then Warmind might offer enough engaging content to warrant a return. Flawed as it may be, Warmind is still enjoyable overall and a step in the right direction for the future of the franchise as a whole.
A good effort but doesn't manages to do enought to right the wrongs of Destiny 2 nor the previous DLC.

We're not there yet, but on the right path. Like Osiris, I wouldn't say Warmind is an expansion worth purchasing if you haven't already done so in a Season Pass. Much of the quality of life improvements aren't locked behind Warmind's DLC paywall but are general roadmap updates open to the entire playing community. Unlike Osiris, which was completely missable, I would recommend playing Warmind if you got it. Go ahead and jump in and give it a try. There is good fun to be had with the new exotics and masterworks, a grind to keep you busy a few hours per week. The game is better and this is the first real sign that the Year 2 expansion might finally turn the corner and make Destiny 2 something like the game Destiny 1 left off with. It's such a shame that this sequel could even get as low as it did, but I really do feel it's on its way back, and the game is in a state now that its worth being a part of that ride again.
Destiny 2: Warmind is the new beginning that the franchise needed and the community hoped. The ranking system in the Crucible and the Escalation Protocol are satisfying and very challenging. The only regret is that the main campaign of this expansion could have been more in-depth.

Warmind, the recent DLC expansion to Destiny 2, is a great step in the right direction for Bungie, but it does fall short in many ways.
Destiny 2: Warmind tries to do just enough to appeal to hardcore Destiny 2 fan base and doesn't seem to have enough for casual Destiny player or anyone who may have fallen off the franchise. From the brief campaign to the tedious level grind, it's hard to Destiny 2's second expansion full-on recommendation.
Destiny 2: Warmind was a chance to regain the trust of Destiny fans, sadly like the previous one is just subpar. Individually set at $20, the content is not worth the price tag, you will probably fall quickly in the same routine, and will be left with 1-2 month saying simply: now what? I'm extremely worried about the franchise now and really hope this is not the road Bungie is going to keep on going with.
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.
Warmind isn’t the content I wanted it to be. But it does give a positive sign that Bungie is trying. Is it repeating some mistakes of the past? Sure.
Bungie still has to return players to Destiny 2, although the content of Warmind looks very promising from the outside, but when you go into it and try it for longer, you feel that the main game problems are still in this expansion, an expansion you will try for two weeks But you will leave the game again after that.

Destiny 2: War Spirit offers little content and barely any fresh ideas - a mini-DLC for die-hard fans.

When it's all said and done Warmind left me feeling mixed.
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.
Unfair rewards and poor balancing make Warmind seem like a step back.
Destiny 2: Warmind is a standard expansion for the series with all its pros and cons. It doesn't try to fix the major franchise' problems, even despite numerous complaints from the fans. On the other hand, it features the same brilliantly working mechanics and cooperative fun.
