Destiny, developed by Bungie and published by Activision, is an online-only first person shooter game.
You wake up from “death” as your little ghost words it, and your first few tasks are basically to give you a feel of the game. You must fight through the fallen. Each planet you travel to, has it own little specie of enemies. To me, Destiny has a Halo type feel to it. Although the two games are very different, the graphics, guns and music are similar.
You’ll get taken to the Tower which is the only place the guardians are able to protect. I absolutely love this game. It came out in 2014, and now has 4 expansions available. Bungie’s creation of destiny is amazing. The graphics are detailed, smooth and just overall perfect. My favorite part of destiny is honestly leveling up and receiving new gear. On each planet with each fight, you can receive encrypted engrams and you can pick up enemy gear. You take the encrypted engrams to the tower to have them revealed. You have a chanced to get legendary and rare items. The strikes are probably my least favorite. I’m sure some people enjoy them but I personally find them too long.
The story line is a lot of fun. With each mission, you level up, and achieve goals. You collect vanguard points, which you can use to buy higher leveled gear at the tower. With each expansion, comes more items, and objectives. You collect glimmer from each mission and you can use glimmer to buy/upgrade your ship and sparrow. Sparrows are so much fun to ride but so tedious. They super sensative to control and you’ll probably find yourself driving into walls or structures a lot. I know I definitely drove into everything and I still do!
When you first play destiny, you have a few different specie choices for your character. Human, Awoken, and Exo. The Classes are Titan, Hunter, and Warlock. With each class, comes different capabilities. I always choose Hunter
because its my favorite.
If you’re looking for a new first person shooter, on different planets, I would definitely recommend Destiny. You always have something to do and items to collect. Give it a go!
