  • WARNING!!! YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ A VERY DETAILED REPORT CARD!!! Overall I would give this game a B+ with the chance to jump to an A+ depending on what they do from here till the release of the full game. Below is my reasoning for this grade. Gameplay ( A+ ) - This game just feels great. Everything is enjoyable and the boss battles from the lvl 6 raid all felt pretty epic for a lvl 6 raid. Story ( B- ) - It might be too early to tell but I am not very impressed with the story at this point. Too be honest I am still not really sure what all happened in the Beta and I was very uninterested with whatever the speaker guy was saying. Not to mention the Beta was supposedly 10% of the whole game. Yes that's including the crucible but still we didn't get much story in the Beta for that to be 10%. I am giving Bungie the benefit of the doubt and not rating this section lower with hopes that they just didn't want to reveal to much in the Beta. Graphics ( A- ) - Nothing ground shaking here but still some very nice graphics. Also nice character, enemies, and weapon models. Music ( A+ ) - Bungie knows how to pick a great composer that is for sure. There were times in this game playing with friends where I asked them, "Is the action in this game seriously this amazing or is the music just tricking us into thinking it is?" that's how amazing the music is. Right on par with the Halo games. Multiplayer/Social aspect ( B- ) - This is another part of my grade that could make a huge leap if they make some improvements before launch. So why the low rating right now? Well let's first look at the pvp multiplayer. The crucible is not bad but it's also not great. However I am a die hard early halo fan before they started adding in armor abilities and load-outs (Halo 3 and earlier). But overall I did enjoy playing it and could continue playing it in the future. What multiplayer is missing is pvp raids. Add this and the grade goes up to a B+. So what's keeping it from getting in the A's? Well there is no social aspect in this game plain and simple. Unless you consider pointing, waving, dancing, and playing soccer a social aspect. If Bungie adds in proximity chat preferably through a console made chat pad that attaches to your controller that would help the grade. However they also need to enhance the number of friends you can play with when free roaming. Also once I see what clans can do in game I will be able give a more firm grade. If they do these things I would give this portion an A or A+. So I wanna give this game an A+ overall but there are still to many big things I need to see more about.

    • B good but not A worthy Gameplay is ok but the missions are not much fun to play. Balance for PVE it is quiet good balanced but PVP need some finetuning and not such stupid stuff like what they want to change for interceptor (moon will be out of balance after that change). Mostly stuff like missing recoil or to high recoil issues for some weapons or the location for Mars map capturepoints and so on. AI not the most stupid out there but also sometimes way to easy. Challenges: Destiny has some challenges that can be hard but never unfair so thats what helps a lot to play it for some hours. Story: Ok the storytelling is nice when it comes for storymissions but between them the lore is nearly not available. PVP: Very well balanced in the beta except the autorifle issue (the autorifle is way to powerful in the current state as it's accuracy is way to high for all ranges so there is no need for skill for it) Controlls: I hate console controlls for FPS! Maybe for a third person shooter but not for a FPS. Thats just the worst way to play a FPS ^^ I have nightmares of the way I need to aim to hit my enemy XD Give us the precission of mouse and keyboard controlls pls ;)

          • I gave it a B because of the issues with pvp, otherwise A++ loved it! I fell in love with the Halo universe and it looks I'm falling for Destiny.

            • B+ Bungie did a good job. There were some things that need improvement especially in matchmaking. Pulse rifles and hand cannons were pretty much useless. First Light was a little big for a 6v6. Not being able to communicate with the players I was teamed with was annoying. There needs to be some system matching players of similar skill together for more even matches. The radar is a little rough and hard to read.

              • A- or B+ Gameplay -- I wouldn't call it innovative, but for me it captured the same fun, dynamic gameplay as Halo. Story -- haven't seen enough to judge, but given what we know and what was in the Beta, looking forward to it. Graphics -- looked excellent on my 360 and will look even better on the X1 Music -- perfect as always; dampened by it being Marty's last work with Bungie Multiplayer -- hit-and-miss; the player-filled Explore was awesome, but lack of any meaningful communication really hurt it. PvP was a mess; needs serious weapon adjustments and larger games than 6v6 (I'll say again: [b]Big. Team. Battle.[/b])
