    Destiny and the flaws in game reviewing systems.

    CommonNinja said: I agree, they are being way to harsh on it.  Titanfall had almost no story or co-op modes, and a multiplayer mode missing basic features like private matches a launch yet got way better scores!! And it's not like you are paying more for Destiny either.  Destiny easily gives you 50-100 hours of fun if you really get into it, and its not like they are charging...

    The Fury said:Game reviewing is an odd thing. I thought I'd have a quick gander at Escapist Magazine's review section the other day (here http://www.escapistmagazine.com/video-games/reviews ) to see what games are getting and while Destiny got 3/5. Mountain, a game about a mountain, got 2.5/5 stars. According to Jim, it's only slighty worse that Destiny? That's not all, Clary Smith there...

If you want to kill warlocks do it up close, and titans from far away. It's called strategy.

If there is much to do in this game then how can COD get such high reviews cause the single player is trash and the multiplayer is not that great.

I am saying that there are reviews which are flawed and claim that reviews should not be based on: 1. Reputation of the company making the game 2. Publisher 3. Budget 4. What the reviewer wants the game to be as opposed to what the game is and what the target audience for...

I'm only pointing out that the reviewing system is flawed due to the fact that the...

Sure the story is not a masterpiece, but comparing it to Halo right now (4 games + books and movies and all that crap) is just stupid. That's what Bungie invited on themselves.

    Why write a paragraph about the flaws... isn't one line enough? you guys would probably be bored if I wrote something too deep and long anyway. "Maybe people are rating it based on a budget... (edit) Journalists* should review the game simply for what it is rather than what they expected the game to be. It's a game that bridges divides and invites people who didn't particularly enjoy FPS...

    I finally got a chance to play Destiny (for about 6-7hrs)... Most gamers would rate a game on four things, Gameplay, Story(less so for multiplayer focussed) and Visuals and replayability. I played the game and it was very enjoyable and addictive(that's coming from someone who isn't really an FPS fan). The visuals were beautiful and the story, while not deep like Halo or TLOR, is okay. I'm a bit...
