Since no one else will say it; Destiny looks dissapointing

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Since no one else will say it; Destiny looks dissapointing

they promissed world of doom but all we got is cod in space...

Wow, the game's barely out and the hate's out in force already. I wish I could say I'm shocked, but I was honestly expecting this. Just goes to show how stale and boring the gaming community has gotten.



Yup, I did not buy it when I heard of people finishing the campaign in 8 - 12 hours :-/

Add to this that this game require an online connection, so it means that one day the disc will be useless...

Where did that 500 million $ go?

All this and the forced PS4 parity with the XB1 version ... at least give us an option to see how it runs with an unlocked frame rate!

Is there more content planned? like missions you can do later? I am not interested in constantly re-playing the same "levels" in MP mode, even less in a competitive mode.

I guess I am not the target audience for this game (there seems to be a lot of people buying it, so I am not worried about their future).

Wait you got the game? After slamming it for months?


I dont know where I have been slamming it for months, but my hype was reserved but I certainly was vocal of my criticisms, including the exclusive deal which I hated from the start. 

Yes I have the game, I really doubt I will bother completing it though. 

People defending the content have to admit that in the long run, playing the repetitive mission, locations and objectives is going to get boring. 

I still haven't hit the stage that I reached in the Beta, maybe another hour or so, but if things dont improve, I don't see myself playing this game. Like I said, there isn't anything bad about the way the game plays except for the way you select missions, but there just is no long lasting appeal for me to continue playing it. 

There have been plenty of games in the past which offer very little story but still do a great job at keeping you comming back for more, Borderlands is the perfect example. unfortunately Destiny doesn't have a fraction of the charm or variety. 

As Pug said, its a game to play in short doses , but I already have the perfect game for that; Titanfall.... 

You've been negatively vocal, yes, which is what he meant by: "slamming it" and why he's confused as to why you bought it.

OT: I've not been disappointed.

It's a good game.

Not great, not amazing, and not the game of the year by a long shot, but they're just my opinions and everyone is entitled to their own.

I find it quite repetitive and the world whilst pretty visually, is fairly sparse.

I'm not a fan of the multi-player at all but that could be because I'm more fond of tactical shooters like Battlefield and I hate twitch shooters like COD.

I can see why people are disappointed with it though. It was hyped up almost as much as Titanfall and we all know what happened with that game.

Recent replies are fresh though.
And I'm not talking of just here either.

The 500 million went into the nonexistant tv spots and other marketing. 



I'm sure the multiplayer is good enough, but I'm trying to stay away from multiplayer games and so I haven't really looked into Destiny, but apparently it's a big deal.



 Been away for a bit, but sneaking back in.

Seriously all previews we got from this game weren't great, mostly were mixed and one said it was boring. Bungie throws around all these buzz words about how massive and epic everything is, and the art style AND the gameplay looks EXACTLY like Borderlands, which has much more character than anything we've seen so far.

 

This game doesnt look fun at all, it lacks identity, and just a half hour ago a poster on NeoGAF who's played it via being a journalist accidentally talked about he MP while he was drunk. Basically calling it a CoD clone with small maps and being underwhelming. I have yet to see a preview of this game that shows it'll live up to the hype, I have yet to see gameplay that tells me it will. This game looks like a worse version of Borderlands, nothing unique about it other than the MMO functionality. 

 

Honestly it's dissapointing because before we got actual footage Bungie talked the game up so well, making it seem as if it was gonna be a game changer, I'm sure it'll sell but I'm willing to bet it flops review wise. And no, I'm not a butthurt Microsoft fanboy who's mad at Bungie, I'm a primary Sony gamer and even I see this game as bad. 

 

Currently has a 75 on metacritic and lowering, I called it.
