If variety is the spice of life, Destiny is a Korma.
I have only been playing for about five hours, so take my musings with a pinch of salt. However, I am bored of the structure already, and that is worrying for five hours of gameplay. It reminds me of the first Assassin’s Creed game; it is good looking and works well technically , but my, oh my, it is repetitive.
My girlfriend pointed out that all I was doing was the same as any other game. By this she meant that it looked like – beyond the superficial makeup of the game – COD.
And she was right. All I was doing was shooting things – attacking, attacking, attacking.
I haven’t bought COD since Black Ops, and with good reason too. I am bored of simply shooting wave after wave of the same enemy just to grind through some sort of rank progression.
Still, the feedback from shooting a gun in Destiny is very good and grinding has as much appeal as any other game that involves grinding. So if you like a good grind and shooting countless same-faced enemies in the face, this is the game for you.
