The majority of my experience with Destiny 2: Forsaken over the last two weeks has been overwhelmingly positive. I think the addition of Gambit, the change up of gameplay design and leveling, the raid, and the sense of scale with the two additional maps has really notched the entertainment value for this series up quite a bit. Forsaken truly is the best thing that has happened to the series. They do need to get crucible cleaned up, though, and sooner rather than later.

Forsaken is by far the best expansion Bungie has released to date. It offers some great storytelling, fun new subclasses, and weapons, reworks some existing systems to make content more accessible and has even progressed in making the whole experience fun. Despite still trying to find the sweet spot with endgame grinding, Destiny 2 Forsaken is worth the purchase price and offers fans of the series a satisfying experience from start to finish.

Between the fun new story, excellent new game mode, and the buckets of new loot and equipment, I can seeDestiny 2 fans having a lot less to complain about… for now.

Changes to the core systems, meanwhile, take two steps forward and one step back. The game's long list of improvements is paired with the return for grinding for grinding's sake. Check back later this week for our final impressions.

All of the new modes are quite fun and the grind for loot has been greatly alleviated by much-needed Sandbox changes. Whether your new, a veteran, or returning player, Forsaken is a milestone in the Destiny franchise.

Forsaken's initial story salvo is entertaining, but there's still work to be done a year into the sequel. Given that the MSRP of everything so far has added up astronomically ($59.99 for the base game, $24.99 for the Season Pass, $40 for Forsaken, $34.99 for Forsaken's season pass) it might be a hard pill to swallow. If you're ready for a guaranteed momentary thrill ride pony up, otherwise you can continue to wait it out to see if the momentum continues.

The Forsaken puts Destiny 2 into the good path again bringing an interesting story and some good ideas to the mix, plus fixing some of the game's mistakes.

This isn't a definitive verdict. There's still a whole lot to do and see in Forsaken, and if we've learnt anything from Destiny 2 it's that this is a game that changes and evolves – or sometimes fails to evolve – as you keep pushing through the endgame content. How many of us raved about Destiny 2 in the early days? Yet right now Forsaken seems to be taking Destiny in the right direction, giving us that killer combination of Halo and Diablo that we've always wanted.

Destiny 2: Forsaken succeeds in returning lost glory to Bungie's shared world shooter, with Gambit mode being the star of the expansion. The end-game looks promising, though it's uncertain how things will shape up in the future.

Destiny 2: Forsaken rights a lot of the wrongs from the original game. It is the game that Destiny 2 should have been right from the start, and because of this, it becomes a lot easier to recommend again.

Destiny 2 Forsaken is a step in the right direction for the title but under delivers in the story department. If you like Destiny 2, then this expansion is for you.

Forsaken is what Destiny 2 should've been at launch, featuring a new PvP mode, a serious story filled with intrigue, and fairly compelling characters. While this is the best that Destiny has ever been, improvements can still be made

In the grand scheme of things, if you can afford it, Destiny 2 is now easily the best shooter on the market. I absolutely love where Destiny 2 is now, and hope the Forsaken expansion is a glimpse at things to come.

Destiny 2: Forsaken still fights with some issues from Destiny 1 but manages to take the place as probably the best Destiny Add-On so far thanks to a gambit mode that offers surprisingly lots of variety, a really motivating storyline and lots of small new features like the Dreaming City Area that will also keep veteran players excited till the upcoming raid.

Destiny 2: Forsaken is shooting and looting at it's best. Taking down Uldren and conquering the Dreaming City is an absolute blast. And with the changes and additions to the sandbox, there are more ways to be a badass than we've ever seen before. Destiny is back, baby. And this time it's in it for the long haul.
