Top Critic Average
Destiny 2's Season of the Drifter gives you some compelling weapons and armor to chase while adding a renewed focus on storytelling. It's unfortunate, though, that the only unique armor is tied to Gambit Prime and that while acquiring Thorn you hit a wall near the end of the quest.

This big year-two expansion irons out most of Destiny 2's wrinkles and offers some of the most mysterious, enjoyable content the series has seen so far.
Most every task the game has set before me has been entertaining, challenging, and rewarding. Yet I feel my former student's weariness mixing in with my usual optimism. There's always something else to go do, but on the other hand, there's always something else to go do.
Forsaken is a bit of a reset for pretty much everything about Destiny 2, and it's one that gives me hope that the franchise is making a turn for the better.
