I agree with three things: Firstly,Destiny is a very big project , it will be up for TEN YEARS! That's freaking huge! Of course we can't have everything right now, it will keep getting better and better.
Secondly,it's true some reviewers (be them be journalists who gets big bucks or gamers who likes to troll everyone) just spit their poison to destroy a game reputation. But you don't have to listen to them.
And finally... Just play the game. Don't trust people's advices blindly, it's always better to see for yourself.
BUUUUT! I think some things still need to be said about this game.
Playing with others is hard as shit. Not only can we only make fireteam with 2 others people but it's really hard to speak with them. I won't talk about the fact it's not great to play with strangers (it's not Bungie's fault and it's true in a lot of games) ,but I think the system could have been a LOOOT better.
The missions are truly repetitive...Of course it's hard to make every mission unique with a game as big as this , but couldn't they do any better? No seriously. It's almost always : land , go from A to B ,killing enemies in the process then it's done... You could say the same for borderlands for example,but I would disagree. Borderlands always had a unique twist we never saw coming! Destiny became too repetitive after a while... I surely hope the DLCs will bring some great missions! And because of that,leveling is tedious... It feels like it takes too long for the game to really start! And when it does,it ends very quickly since the level cap is fairly low! It will surely improve like a good handful of RPGs did ,but 30 is not a very high cap... 50 is more common,and more fair!
I won't speak about the story,because even if right now it's nothing really special, I think the game will improve and deliver it during it's ten years lifespan! Nothing to rush then (even if right now,it's not very interesting)
The environnements aren't what I espected too! They are marvelous,beautiful. My jaw dropped when I saw them,really! But even if (again) we'll probably see a whole lot more in the future,I feel like we don't see enough. After a while,the landscapes seems too similar,which is quite sad because the game take place not in a city,not on a planet but on a WHOLE STAR SYSTEM! That's quite sad we can't see more of it right now.
THE FREAKING LOADING TIMES! I'm not very impatient, I can wait. But even if the universe is big as hell so it takes time to load... It's too long. WAY TOO LONG for a late 2014 game. And even if they were so long,why not have a little something for us? Like maybe small infos about the game,the universe,the enemy races etc... A lot of game do that during their loading times,and it's always a good thing to learn a little more!
Speaking of content and variety , I think enemies and weapons should have done better too... That's definitely something we'll see in future updates,DLCs,expansions and games,but having a little more from the very beginning would have been really better. I mean... There's a handful of weapons yeah,but without thinking about the bazillions guns of borderlands...could they add some more? And speaking of "quality over quality" ,Bungie is the company that gave us amazing and original weapons : grav-hammer,needler,plasma sword,the fuel rod gun... Why do we get such classical weapons? The only original weapon we get are the fusion rifles ,who are a nice and refreshing way to kill ,but even if with such a great game it would be hard to make every weapon unique: was it so hard to make a few of them really different? And it's the same for the enemies! When I saw the wikis of the game,I was like "oh,that's fine,we get 4 enemy races with 4-5 enemy types each,that's great! I can't wait to see the rest of them!" except it was ALL of them... What the hell? Again,we can't ask them to give us hundreds of different enemies right now,but after a while,it feel really tiresome to always shoot at the SAME EXACT THING. I don't ask for hundreds of enemy types,just a bit more variety.
And don't say something about "the game will grow bigger" no. I think that after so much development time and the money they spent , they could have done something more interesting. I was almost sure that the game would never live up to the hype,and I know a lot of these flaws will dissapear as the game will evolve! But some things are just unforgivable. The problem is Destiny had a lot of promises... Destiny is not a bad game at all. But it's not the great,no what am I saying...THE FANTASTIC game it should have been. So yeah, of course the game will be better in the future,but that's no excuses... You can't just say than a decent game is amazing because it WILL be amazing. It should be amazing from the start,even more when it promised so much.
(Oh,and the french version sucks ass)
