    Exactly what was expected

    We all should know by now, even though we are all victims to it, that hype is a game killer. We see it with nearly every AAA title that comes out as these games are advertised almost as much as movies and millions of dol... Read Full Review

    What it gets right and what it doesn't

    Decent shooter, but lacks imagination and feels stale.

    Like many previous reviews have said Destiny is a well designed shooter with solid mechanics that is really lacking in every other department. I was pretty excited about this game since hearing about it a couple years ag... Read Full Review

    Only nice on the outside

    Very repetitive game. Do the same thing over and over. See the same areas over and over. Many enemies are just bullet sponges, that is the only challenge you will encounter. The story is lame and leaves many questions un... Read Full Review

    The Anti-Bungie Game

    Halo 1 is one of the first console shooters where I didn't feel completely alienated without mouse and keyboard. For someone who grew up with Wolfenstein 3D, Doom 1-2 and later the UT / Quake 3 combo, it was kind of shoc... Read Full Review
