Your ghost finds your corpse and the player are allowed to take charge of their character. The character is given choice to three unique classes: the warlock, the titan, and the hunter. The titan is the heavy hitter of the group based around going in loud and with guns up. The hunter is the sniper of the group based around hitting with critical headshots from a medium to long range. Lastly the warlock who is based around using magic and modern firearms to deceptively takes down any opposition. Each classification of guns works, as they should. This is also the first Activision published FPS in which quick scoping doesn’t work.
The campaign is very intense. The player will know that it’s a fight when they are outgunned and outnumbered, but still stand a chance. The player should also stay away from multiplayer, as it is a cluster of over powered weapons and abilities. Four types of enemies are currently in Destiny. The Hive, the Fallen, the Cabal, and the Vex. The Hive is more based around looking like they are undead and very old. The Fallen are four armed mercenaries and pirates. The Vex are mostly robots that you have to shoot in their power core, which is based in their abdomen, or they don’t go down. Lastly is the Cabal, the big space turtles of the group. Each race of enemy is unique on how they look and the weapons they carry, but the A.I. [Artificial Intelligence] in this specific game is not very smart. It either tries to swarm the player or overpower the player from a distance.
The armory that the player wields surely makes up for the brain dead retarded A.I. The first gun isn’t very powerful, but the weapons just get better. There are shotguns, hand cannons [revolvers], auto rifles, sniper rifles, scout rifles, LMGs [Light Machine Guns], rocket launchers, pulse rifles, and fusion rifles. All feel reliable except for scout rifles, which should never be used. The armor each class has is different and unique along with the cloth that each class wears. The Titans have the most armor then the Hunters have the next, and finally the Warlocks have the least amount of armor.
The mechanics in Destiny feel really similar to that of Halo very stiff, but responsive. The game runs well with no movement lag. The game looks good, but does suffer some texture pop in which isn’t a major problem. Destiny is a shooter that compares to that of Call of Duty, Battlefield, and even Halo. This game deserves an 8.5 out of 10, a shooter that any shooter fan should pick up. Become legend.
