Critic Reviews for Destiny 2: Forsaken

After a precarious first year, I'm finally enjoying Destiny 2 again. It feels good to have it back.

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.

Destiny 2's Forsaken expansion is dense and rewarding, though it does require a bit of patience.

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.

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.
