Destiny, your thoughts?

Destiny, your thoughts?
Gameplay: 9/10
Music: 9.5/10
Story: 2/10
Social interaction: 1/10 (they need to patch this asap)

It's a great game, I'm enjoying it immensely. It has 2 major flaws, no voice coms unless you are already party-ed up, which for a quasi-mmo where you are constantly grouping up with people to beat bosses together, aint ideal… When you can't tell them to not stand somewhere because it spawns really annoying adds… That should have been picked up in beta.

The storyline is threadbare, mass effect this aint. Sure you get lore through 'cards' you earn, but you then gotta go on the web to read those. It could have been done a much better way, even having them available to read in game would have been better. As it was I had little idea why I was shooting what I was shooting, other than that they were trying to shoot us…

As I said it's a fun game to play, just don't expect much by way of a story. The pvp (apart from no coms) is about right. At range: Less health than in halo so you're not unloading entire clips into them, having to reload before you can finish them off, but not like ghost-recon where a scratch to the leg kills you instantly. Melee range is another story. Things don't last long in there. The super-powers system is good, unlike cod it doesn't rely on getting streaks, but it still rewards better play. Some of those 6 class-restricted super powers though need a bit of tweaking, some are leaps and bounds better than others.

Music is phenomenal, what else would you expect from bungie?
Nemo me impune lacessit.

A decent story
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

That's frustrating. I had been tempted to buy a PS4 in 2015 or 2016 just to get Destiny. But ever since I played the original BioShock on PC, I've always loved story in my games and can never stand campaigns without a really good one. So this is really disappointing.
Luke: You don't believe in the Force, do you?

Han Solo: Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen *anything* to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. 'Cause no mystical energy field controls *my* destiny. It's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

Destiny is Awesome, maybe once they patched a few things like the coms it will be an epic game
