Most Recent Review - Destiny 2 by Jason1637

Campaign: The campaign for Vanilla Destiny was not that great and lots of people were bummed out by the weak campaign and lack of content in the first game. Bungie listened to this criticism and overall they delivered a great campaign in Destiny 2. Not going to spoil anything but the story is that Ghaul and the Red Legion launch an attack on Earth and the guardians are not able to defeat them so a few of them end up escaping. You are one of the few guardians that were not able to escape and you are almost killed because you lose all your powers. Throughout the campaign you must return the light and defeat Ghaul and the Red Legion.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018.
