Poll Destiny Beta Review Score (PS4, Xbox One) (98 votes)

1.0 - 5.0 (Things frigging broken) 7%
5.0 - 6.0 (Games next to broken) 1%
6.0 - 7.5 Mediocrity at it's finest 21%
7.5 - 8.5 Day 1 Buy 38%
8.5 - 9.5 System Seller 26%
10.0 Game of the Year 5%

If this gamer were released right now as a finished product what score would you give it.

(Obviously level cap would be removed, areas unlocked. I know you can't have first hand experience with these just guesstimate on how they would measure up based on your experienced so far.)

I'd definitely give it a 9-9.5

Game isn't perfect, but it's darn fun and pretty gorgeous. Can't wait for the full release in September. It's GOTY absolutely.

Yeah that last option should of been 9.5- 10 as there is 0.5 missing. I also maybe should of put an I don't know option since you can't see results without voting. My Bad.

Beta's are for testing purposes, they are not full games.

I wouldn't even consider it a demo. Those are usually near-finished products.

8.5 one of the best betas i've been in BUT content wise its lacking. why releasing essentially the same thing twice from alpha to beta? Is the game so small that they're scared of giving us more than one zone to explore? This is my biggest worry about the full game, a small mmo is a bad mmo, one that gets old after 1 week

I think its indeed one of the best beta in a few years agreed.. very fun and i thought it had a lot of content for it to be a full download game lol

anyways while its fun i think it has a lot of things that need fixing from the boring long ass cutscenes to long loding times to the boring bosses in co-op mode i mean seriously that tank took a long time to beat!.. basically it ended up being nothing but shoot, dodge and shoot i almost fell asleep fighting that tank

You don't say. When Bungie meant parity they certainly meant it, last gen with current gen loadings time parity---------------------------

It's called a hypothetical, Beta usually isn't worse than the actual release which is very close.

Average.

If the game was just more of this? it would be so unimpressive. Assuming it's the length of a usual mmo, or a rpg, or even Borderlands 2, where the fast hours are in the 20s, it doesn't have the enemy variety to stay strong for that long. It doesn't have the encounter design variety to justify that shit either. It routinely relies on Tyrionbot to either hack something or open a door, that required you to "wait" and provide "cover" and shoot waves of enemies, before you move forward and shoot waves of enemies.

It's fun on a mechanical level in a basic sense. You shoot gun, gun feels good, solid feedback, enemies themselves feel a little lively when you fight them. it relies heavily on not your mastery of a system, or expertise or skill, but your willingness to be compulsive for loot, upgrades, and number crunching. All the while still without the tactical depth of an actual actionrpg/mmo, because what you have here is a more straight forward shooter. It's more bonus than substantial play style switching build.

The game world itself while beautiful to look at, has nothing in it. What the **** can you even be invested in? Bungie's script? that's iffy at best right now. The actual environmental story telling? that's leagues behind the likes of what The Souls games have been doing in their series, or what Bioshock was doing in 07, or what Half Life 2 doing in 2004, or what Metroid Prime was doing in 2001. The environment itself may be painted with this rich history and all that jazz, but there is so little information to gather if you are the player.

Again it's a beta, so it's only really testing the basics and stress testing servers. But if the game doesn't have more variety, or at the least a bit more meat to the games universe: it's going to get boring quick. **** a decade, it might barely be fun for a few hours.

It looks good but I just dont see myself playing it as much as the games it borrows from such as Mass Effect and Borderlands.

Around an 8 or so only because it feels like it may get boring fast since it lacks variety. I got other complaints too but that's the major one.

How have Xbox 360 or X1 owners been owned??? This game is a MULTI-PLAT you idiot!!!!! Do you really believe that Destiny is a PS4 exclusive??? BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I see this game getting a 9 here at GS and probably an 8.5 Metacritic as I am sure there will be some 6's and 7's out there.

Based on the alpha and beta, i would give it an 8.5, great game! It looks good and plays like a dream, but its nowhere as deep and open as Bungie said it would be, and i see no reason for it to not run at 1080p60.

After Titanyawn scored a 9 I really think these reviewers get way too caught into hype. Destiny does not look like a 9.0 but I have a feeling reviewers will cave and throw around 9's like free candy.

currently a 7 .... I Cant imagine the game getting anymore complex.... it just feels like mmo-lite with slow halo gameplay without the same sort of charm. certainly not close to what people thought it would be.

That being said, it will probably score 8-9 .... just too slow and boring, and the boss mechanics are lame as hell... just super high health tanky bosses that shoot a powerful attack for you to avoid.... or waves.

Given how this game needs 15 million to break even, it's a very good guarantee many review sites will

A) Give overextended unbalanced game coverage with frivolous shows (gamespot/IGN).

B) Not go below an 8.

C) Have "launch day" events to promote the game giving the impression it's something universally loved and important.

Around the 80 metacritic mark would be my guess.

Its gets an 8 for me. The gameplay is really solid. The full game can go to a 9 depending how good is the story.

I admit the gameplay looks better than Halo, color me shocked. solid 8.

However, no off-line single player campaign, no buy.

Forced parity is my bet as the Xone does seem to have trouble getting the 1080p at 60FPS more than the PS 4.

Uhh Destiny has a single player campaign. And you're complaining about the iron sight aiming when it's nearly a standard feature in all modern FPS?

yes its standard in modern FPS and its sad.

however PC old school games still not use (or forced to use) iron sights. iron sights slow down gameplay

Well it looks like an MMO, it plays like an MMO and quacks like an MMO.....
