Video game review: Destiny

Destiny Review PHOTOAt first, Destiny is filled to the brim with sci-fi action and adventure. Sadly, that’s only at first.

The game became extremely repetitive after just a few hours of playing. There was no variety in the gameplay and it felt like I was doing the same thing over and over.

It was also impossible to play a player vs. player match because the games aren’t balanced. This means that if you’re a new player, you’ll have to play against people who have already beat the game, which means they have much better gear and can win much easier.

One cool part about the game is that Peter Dinklage is the voice actor for your ghost, which is a small robot that follows you around and helps you throughout the game. Disappointingly, he sounds really bored and his tone of voice carries a “can I get paid already” kind of feeling.

The story for the game explains how you are one of the “Guardians of the Light,” and your enemies are known as “The Darkness.” As cheesy as that sounds, I liked it. The “Light battling The Darkness” made Destiny feel like more of a sci-fi fantasy game and less of a war-based, blow-everything-up kind of game.

I loved jumping into Destiny, but by the end, playing the game took more labor and less fun. I would give Destiny a 7 out of 10 because the game had great potential, but the repetition and unbalanced player vs. player greatly took away from the experience.
