Looks pretty bland too me

Pretty uninteresting direction for Bungie to go with, yet another sci fi fps game series...Yeah I really cant say Bungie is cut out for triple A games anymore hell halo was only Triple A with The first game and halo 3, the rest just made for mp which makes them garbage games in general.

This is one gen I will be doing a lot of renting than buying. This game is a rent only so far, the graphics look pretty bad honestly, bigger maps doesn't always make for better games. The particle effects in this game look last gen, the models dont look even up to par with current gen either. They have been making this game for far too long and it has suffered greatly from this. They are not using true next gen tech, like frost bite 3 or anything like that. No destructive environments, no blood and gore, this game looks pathetic.

the game showed is not final so no one can talk about this game sucks, this game graphics suck, it is not a final product so stop complaining before you have real facts...

You are an idiot then, the game is pretty much finished no way in hell does it takes this many years to make a game no matter how big. The graphics we see in it now is the finished product. If they wanted this to sell they should have had this playable upon next gen release.

Bungie is no longer a company I care about.

i would say it looks a bit clean,rather than bland and since i really give no f*ck about the graphics,it's not a problem for me at all.And i would be surprised if an MMO/single player hybrid had top notch graphics...

It's still disappointing looking though, I dont see myself being wowed when this is released, you are lying to yourself if you say that the graphics or other physics are gonna show what the next gen consoles are capable of. It's another open world sci fi game, doesn't mean it will be a bad game in general just dont really expect it to be all that impressive. I'm tired of games suffering due to being released on multiple consoles, they should have just waited longer and focused on making halo a great series again, instead they just abandon it to that pathetic excuse of a dev 343 who ruined halo, just look at halo 4 it's just a graphic whore really and since there are no amazing new physics realistic gore, or huge environments to wage war on, or destructible things in general than typical small stuff.

I still say this game is rather bland looking.

to be honest all games are bland no matter how they make them. I play them to have fun. as for halo I found that series stupid anyway.

Hmm after playing the alpha I must admit it was a hell of a lot of fun, though I still feel it doesn't come close to next gen tech they could have easily just put this on the 360 you wont see a difference.

Does Bungie not know how to implement physics or something though? This game doesn't have any vegetation doesn't appear to move when you run through it, you cant blow anything up in the environment so it still feels pretty cheap for a game being prett much the most expensive in history you would think they could have put resources into making it the best looking game in history yet it looks rather generic. Just slightly better than borderlands really.

I'm gonna buy it though the gameplay matters a lot as well and has a much deeper story than their past games.

If the games fun then buy it by all means. This game is supposed to be going on for another 10 years (so they say) so the high budget might be because of that. That or they're squandering most of it. Graphics in my opinion should never be the only sell point for a game though. Look at indie games. Low budget low graphic games that are fun and have a high replayability (the good ones that is.) Destiny however should not be the case. "High budget should mean high quality graphics, high quality story and high quality gameplay." You can quote me for that if you want...

When you are as funded as Bungie is there really is no excuse to dumb anything down or take short cuts.

I will get this but I still say it's gonna be rather boring after a while. Graphically yes still looks rather meh, the animations though alright dont impress, physics are meh, the size of the maps so far that I've played are really not that large and lots of areas dont even let you use the speeder bikes I call them all that well. Enemies are pretty predictable only reason you die is because they have a much higher level than you so for me this game after I beat it likely gonna just shelve it for a good while.

Nothing in this game so far meets the hype and all the grandiose story elements.

If you rent it you will never complete it.

There have been a few attempts at this genre of game and all have failed to be anything close to what was expected or promised, borderlands is the best so far. I don't expect this game to be perfect, especially as devs are still getting a handle on the new gen, however this looks like it is a massive step forward from anything before and things can only improve. If they are looking to prolong this game over 10 years I expect a lot of big changes will happen over the years that will completely transform the games experience. If any of you played Diablo 2, that game was fairly boring until they release the expansion pack which made it one of the, if not the best game in that genre.

Yeah this game sucks I'm sick of it already I'm only level 6 but dont feel like grinding out to lvl 20 like most of the player base seems to have already done. Crap mp, crap story, crap next gen hardware.

Not interest in playing through the story it's so bland and boring.

It's a hot mess of mediocre. But hey, it's fun at least until level twenty if you don't mind that every mission is like a fetch quest and super repetitive. But dear god the game play outside of pvp after level 20 is a nightmare. You literally just play the same 6 strike missions from the story over and over for better gear but with everything being a higher level. And it's rng based for which strike you play as well. I played 5 last night, played the same one three times, twice in a row. I took my time and was level 20 by 20-21 hours into the game. My second character is level 7 after only 2 hours.

Yeah I dont feel like wasting 20 hours of my time on a mediocre game. Bungie should just give up making games they haven't done a good game in over a decade now. Halo Reach has a good mp for the most part but the single player is rather forgettable in terms of caring about the characters.

Bungie gets 2 thumbs down, they are no longer a game developer I wish success for, in fact considering how terrible of a job they did with this game I hope they shut down. Will never happen though they have too much money.

I agree with the OP. Halo 1 was the best Halo. It didn't have as good graphics as Halo 3 but otherwise it was the best. The story, music, maps, emotions, gameplay, enemies, everything was great about Halo 1. I played Halo 1 campaign something like a dozen times! That was partly because I had no money to buy games back then but also because the campaign was so great and involving. Halo 3 was also very good. I may even go back and play these 2 games again sometime. I loved them so much. I also thought Halo Wars was a pretty good RTS. All the other Halo games were mostly disappointing. They were not first rate.

As for Destiny, I played it for 2 days and I haven't played it again. I am not emotionally craving to play that game. I am just fine not playing it. Maybe I will sell it. Destiny is very poorly designed game. Whoever designed Destiny acts like they don't know much about how to design a game. They did almost nothing that game designers usually do to make games interesting. Destiny is a half-baked piece of junk, far from the triple A masterpiece that I was expecting.

Bungie should make a new Destiny game and fix all the problems. Then they should give it for free to all of us who bought the game. Otherwise they are jerks (putting it mildly)

Bungie is not going to fool me again. Next time they release a game, I will not buy it the first day. I will wait at least a few weeks to see the reviews and complaints about it and find out what it's like. I think there's a good chance I will never buy another Bungie game again.

Your post is based off destinys graphics? are you serious? and that's your basis for why the game sucks? goes to show just how stupid gamers can really be. I don't own destiny, I don't plan to own it. Just saying, your review is bland, and your reviews graphics are so last gen -.-
