First I’d like to say that I’m an avid gamer that will play all types of games. Saying that, I really like the concept of Destiny. The game play is good. The graphics are very nice. Interaction with other players as far as fighting and coming up on them is okay.
Chat is lacking. You can’t chat with somebody unless you’re in a fire team with them. When you go to a section of the game/mission and you get put into a Fire team, you still can’t chat with them at that time. That really bites. I haven’t seen a way to trade items with other players or even sell them. I might be wrong about that. I may not have seen them yet.
It kind of doesn’t make too much sense to cap the standard level at 20 and then say if you want to go above 20, you have to get material items with the light aspect included. It makes sense to some degree, but not completely. How is it going to effect the leveling when the Expansion comes out? As the game grows, what is the effects?
The missions that you can play on the portals are pretty short and sweet. They are an easy way to get some experience under your belt. I have run across a few sections of the game take for instance on Earth there are some areas that have high level enemies and there’s nothing there. Hopefully the expansions will take care of this issue.
I guess the main thing that is a draw back for me with Destiny is it was broadcast as a way to play with other players and have fun doing it. For me, I do not have many friends on PlayStation network. I only friend people who play with me and we play well together.

I’m always on the hunt for others to join me on my games (my username is moviex73), but the lack of open chat text or voice communication between players to me makes me feel that even I’m in a group I’m still playing solo. Also, there are sections of the game that are designed as group verses group and player verses player. In order to level up, you have to compete in these areas and since I don’t have a lot of experience playing online with other players or against other players due to our Internet status (trying to fix now.) I find it hard on these types of levels.
Overall Destiny is worth buying and playing because of the promise of things that are going to happen in the game later on. I know what some people say, take what the game is not what they say. However, when it comes to the powerhouses of Sony and Bungie together you can’t go wrong in my opinion.
What are your feelings about the Destiny game?
