Introduction 

From the makers of the acclaimed hit game Destiny, comes the much-anticipated sequel. An action shooter that takes you on an epic journey across the solar system.
Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.

Game Story  
Destiny 2 is an online-only multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie and published by Activision. It was released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2017, followed by a Microsoft Windows version the following month.It is the sequel to 2014's Destiny and its subsequent expansions. Set in a "mythic science fiction" world, the game features a multiplayer "shared-world" environment with elements of role-playing games. Players assume the role of a Guardian, protectors of Earth's last safe city as they wield a power called Light to protect the Last City from different alien races. One of these races, the Cabal, led by the warlord Dominus Ghaul, infiltrate the Last City and strips all Guardians of their Light. The player sets out on a journey to regain their Light and find a way to defeat Ghaul and his Red Legion army and take back the Last City.
Like the original, activities in Destiny 2 are divided among player versus environment (PvE) and player versus player (PvP) game types. In addition to normal story missions, PvE features three-player "strikes" and six-player raids. A free roam patrol mode is also available for each planet and features public events as well as new activities not featured in the original. These new activities have an emphasis on exploration of the planets and interactions with non-player characters (NPCs) on the planets; the original Destiny only featured NPCs in social spaces. PvP features objective-based modes, as well as traditional deathmatch game modes. All PvP game modes are four-versus-four, a change from the previous installment, which featured six-versus-six, three-versus-three, and two-versus-two variants. Like the original Destiny, the game features expansion packs which further the story and adds new content and missions. The first expansion, Curse of Osiris, released in December 2017, while a second is planned for release in early 2018.
Upon release, Destiny 2 received generally favorable reviews from critics. The game received praise for its many improvements over its predecessor. The original Destiny received much criticism for its story, but Destiny 2 was praised as having a "more robust story" and an actual fleshed out villain.[3][4] As with the original, gameplay for the most part was also highly praised. Reviews were split on the recategorization of the weapons and the newer activities like the Adventures and Lost Sectors, but praise was unanimous on the exploration of the game world. Changes to PvP were welcomed by some reviewers, though others were critical for the mode lacking player choice. Destiny 2 won Best PC Game at the 2017 Game Critics Awards and received six nominations at The Game Awards 2017.

Destiny 2





















I'm a returning player to the world of Destiny. I really liked the first game, and my view on Destiny 2 will be more of the same - as it feels like a continuation of the first honestly. Destiny 2 feels more like an expansion v1.5 more than it does a complete sequel. Classes and combat seem to behave similarly as to what I'm used to. Destiny 2 seems more vivid, vibrant, and robust in it's visuals/graphics overall. Playing this game on a PlayStation 4 Pro, and a Curved 4K Ultra HDTV is absolutely stunning!
Areas & Worlds don't seem as barren as they were in the first game either. The inclusion of a map this time around helps a bunch in finding my way around. The map now pinpoints NPC locations, points of interest, and open world events that are currently happening. The open world events are great, as the map gives a timer when they start/end - so you can prepare accordingly.
One of the more noticeable improvements to the game are the Engrams. Engrams are now automatically decoded when you pick them up. You no longer need to store them, and go back to the Cryptarch to decode. Furthermore you no longer need to ensure that you're wearing your highest Light Level items (i.e. gear) to decode Engrams, in order to get better gear; The system automatically gives you the best chance of getting the higher Light Level items now (even from items stored in your Inventory).
Now for the cons - which are pretty much the micro-transactions this time around. I'll name a few here:
• Shades are now one-time use. Although they can drop randomly in the game world, they're a micro transaction purchase from the Ever verse vendor now.
• Sparrows (aka Speeder Bikes) aren't acquired until level 20. Although the Sparrows can be acquired randomly through playing the game, or through micro transactions from the Eververse vendor.

While the Eververse Trading Company vendor still allows the purchase of the in-game currency Silver, you can still purchase Emotes. Emotes were a known a cosmetic item carried over from the first Destiny, so that's not really a surprise. However, the decision to add one-time use shaders is surprising since the system worked well in Destiny... there was no need to change it. This manuever by the publisher is an obvious cash grab to players, regardless to the fact that shaders can drop in the game - that's not the point IMO. If you've played Ovewatch, the purchase of so-called loot boxes will be familiar to you; Bungie is going the same route here, with random emotes, exotic weapon ornaments, shaders, sparrows, etc. dropping from opening these boxes with the purchase of Silver (from real world money).
 

Verdict

The game feels more polished than the first game, and the exclusion of Grimore Cards was a good move. Game lore can now be learned in-game, without the need to use a website to look up information about what's happening with the story. Voice acting is superb, the music is wonderful & mesmerizing, and the cinematics are great. If you enjoyed Destiny, than you'll enjoy playing Destiny 2. If you're new to the franchise, you can still play Destiny 2 without the need to play the first game.

With regards to PvP, there is no longer 6v6 - as it's now 4v4. While this is a point of contention among veterans of the game, it doesn't bother me since I really don't like to PvP. However, with a smaller team, things should feel more balanced (hopefully) - and less overwhelming going against a larger force. I personally like the decision, and this change may make me finally give PvP a try this time around.

I give the game 4-stars overall, and I definitely recommend it. Especially if you enjoyed the first game. This is most certainly not a sequel though, but it's more Destiny goodness nonetheless. Two thumbs up!
