    i find this game extremely boring, shame it wasn't on steam as id be eligible for a refund. I think i put in just about 2 hours
    Ok no offense but I'm calling BS here. Two hours? If true which I doubt that's your fault for not trying the free beta. You see this a lot these days. Someone jumping onto a forum claiming they put in an hour two hours or whatever and claiming the game sucks or it's boring.  It's very hard today to make that conclusion without showing your bias or agenda.  

    Nothing wrong with not liking a game but try and keep your obvious bias agenda out of it.  
    I actually did play the beta and "somewhat" enjoyed it. I'm not even sure why i bought it, I was very "meh" about the game. To be honest im not sure if your questioning whether i actually own the game or just making a case that im a fool for buying a game i didnt enjoy.... If its the latter i'll agree with you. Regardless i find the game boring extremely boring, Thats a FACT and my opinion.
    So where did it fall short for you compared to other semi-bullet sponge FPS? I'm not questioning that it didn't click for you or the validity of you opinion, but I do find it surprising given how the shooting and guns work amongst its peers.

    The gun play rivals most arena or map based team shooters. It's super realistic shooting and physics like R6:Siege or BF1, but there are 1 and 2 hit headshots, weaker enemies die to fewer hits while bosses have shields and armour to wear down first. There are varied tactics and reasons to use every kind of gun and type (kinetic, energy, power). Cover matters. It's fast and fluid much like a Quake game, but not that crazy frenetic.

    I can understand it not being a favorite but boring to the point where you wished for a refund did surprise me.
    The only 2 fps games im currently playing and enjoying are Rising Storm 2 Vietnam (Great vietnam era shooter) and Borderlands 2 


     Why do i feel like im being put on trial for simply not liking destiny 2 lol

    Am i the only person here who has ever put a few hours into a game and simply not liked it?

    I said I'm not criticizing your choice. It's a discussion forum. You called the game extremely boring which I found odd so I asked why you thought that and then explained why I think it's at least on par with every other major shooter in its category. You don't have to agree.

    If you make comments like "It's extremely boring" with no explanation on a game discussion forum expect people who don't share the opinion to engage with you. I don't know how I could have phrased the question in any softer, safer, or more respectful manner.

    I found the game a lot of fun when I was making progress. Then I got all 3 classes to that gear wall where you only increase on weekly resets. After one night I'm left with nothing to do because 100% of the loot that drops from strikes, events, vendors, and lost sectors is useless.

    I found the enemies to be incredibly dull in both appearance ,repetitiveness & difficulty the whole loot & gear system feels like a copy paste from destiny 1 and the  enviroment i was in felt very restrictive and on rails (Rat in a maze from hub to hub feel. Now maybe all this changes past the 10th or 11th hour but unfortunately Im bored to tears and have no desire wasting 6 hours of my day to find out "if the game gets good"

    Destiny 1.5, as it should be called, is not worthy of being called a new game. It's an xpac at best. An xpac that wipes your player and forgets completely the entire world you started in. It's easy mode in the extreme. Pretty much all of the story content you can just run past stuff and ignore it. Re-used models, same engine, small group content quickly exhausted. Standards are dropping even further if this is what AAA games are going to look like.

    The shooting mechanics are solid, but Bungie should have those down by now so not really surprising. And stop calling it an MMO. If you're going to call it GW 1 with guns then at least own the fact that GW1 was a Co-Op game not an MMO. There is nothing MMO about Destiny 2. Even the developers say it's not an MMO. Duh!

    So glad I didn't waste money on this one. If anyone wants to watch a real review of Destiny 2, watch this:

    You have quite the opinion on something you admit to never playing.  Video game forums are the only place on Earth this mentality is somewhat accepted. I can post a YouTube video claiming how great the game is.  

     Just to point out the crying you just did in this one post is more words then I have ever typed in my entire life on a video game I never played.  It's pretty pathetic kids cry this much about something they never played and or plan on playing.  Move on buddy there are plenty of other games out there for you.

    Did I say I had never played it? No, I said I didn't buy it. That doesn't mean that I don't have access to a friend's copy which he kindly allowed me to play through before I made a decision on whether or not I would buy my own copy. After several hours of mind numbing repetitive boredom I started checking out reviews from sources I trusted to see if the game improved as it progressed and what I found only confirmed my fears.

    So, yes, I'm glad I didn't buy this game. Luckily for me I had a friend who let me have a good long play of the game so I could see for myself if I wanted to spend the money on it. It failed to impress me completely. That WAB video I linked is pretty much what I thought of the game after trying it out for myself, but he just does it in such an amusing way I thought some of the forum goers here might enjoy it.

    But thanks for the personal attack, the assumption that I'm a "kid" and your recommendation that I move on to another game. 1 out of 3 is better than none I suppose.

    It was hard to be hyped about Destiny 2 after my lackluster experience in the first title. /Shrug

    Its just not worth the asking price on today's market, imo.

    Its the first FPS I have played in a while and I like it. It reminds me a lot of Tabula Rasa for some reason (not saying it is or meant to be or why but there just something about it that echoes that game and I spent many hours in TR). Its simply just fun right now (I am level 9 and just over 100 power and taking my time). The journey has been fun so far. Not sure where it ends or if I would like it but the ride has been enjoyable.

    If you look at my post history you'll also see that I played the beta weekend and posted on here after that event, when I voiced my concerns about content. After that beta weekend I certainly wasn't going to pay the asking price for a game I already had doubts about. You're damned right I sought out a copy I could review before I made that decision.

    By your response I'd hazard a guess that your a fan. Good for you. I don't particularly care if you believe me or not. I don't care if you agree with me or not. I'm entitled to my opinion and to voice it, just as you are. But I'll do it without attacking anyone for their differing opinions. You might consider showing the same courtesy.

    It does give me a Tabula Rasa vibe at times with the assaults and such. That game was way ahead of its time in both major incarnations.

    I'd like to thank all the naysayers who significantly lowered my expectations for this game going in. Made it a pleasant surprise when I found that I fully enjoy playing the game. But then I'm a filthy casual these days, and I can see why hard core players who burn through content would be disappointed.

    For those who are on the fence, aren't hardcore players and haven't played Destiny 1, I'd fully recommend this game. Maybe look up some youtube videos to brush up on what happened in Destiny 1 though.

    I agree with the review - I give it a solid 8/10

    people complain about longevity... for me the 40 hours I played were fun to me.

    That is well worth it to me, I didnt expect anything more



    people like you are the reason why video games get worse and worse every year.

    Lol way to assume everything based on my post.

    I played Destiny 1 at my friends house put about 60 hours in and that was enough for me to get my fill

    I played D2 at the same friends house and had my fun for around 40 hours. 

    I simply managed my expectations - and I am the problem?

    I didnt purchase either game.

    I love it. On of the best shooting mechanics i have ever witnessed empirical wise. Everything is smooth and run great on old PC.

    Havent this much fun shooting since forever :)

    I love Destiny 2 as a game (I never played the first one). Sadly, the game is mostly dead. Lots of players running around on Earth, but once you leave Earth the game is basically dead, so the public events that popup are basically pointless. Stay away from this game if you expect to group up with people past Earth.

    I personally give it 6.8 its an ok game, left a lot to be desired for, too many stops telling you to wait before you can progress and the devs add content in drops to make the game last longer. I'm done after just a few weeks.

    I've already stopped playing and gone back to Warframe. The shooting in Destiny 2 is really good but it falls short in almost every other category when comparing it to Warframe.

    Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

    Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

    D2 is just ok game and you can give the game 8.5 for just shooting. Overall it is 6.5 at best. But Spin Doctors are paying a lot of money to make fake ratings just so they sell an extra copy. On the other hand Warframe will get more players cause now everyone compare this 2 games and Warframe defo deserve 8.5. Whole review was well paid or the writer is just a fan boy (or both).
