...as are early reviews. Verdicts so far are that weapons = good, sorry/missions = ... oh dear, not again.

I liked the missions. Didnt outstay their welcome, and there wasnt really that much story. Par for the course with Destiny really.

Weapons are pretty cool. Love the update to sunshot now, which can kill mobs very quickly.

Mission 1 was pretty good and the last  was also good.

 

The middle not so much, especially as we had to grind levels to be able to start one of the missions because we didn't have any XP boost tokens... Still no new enemies, although the Hive are icy now.

 

Reusing areas AGAIN is just taking the piss.It's not like they haven't had time or extra money from the micro transactions to create new content. And still it was too short.The music is better though as that was an area that I felt was lacking in the base game.

 

No new full raid, which is where I've had the most fun playing this game.

 

I'll play for a while to get some new gear and attempt the raid lairs, then I think I'll probably go back to Destiny 1 to play the 2 raids I never finished.

 

I definitely will not be preordering the new content, and I'll wait a while to get the consensus on whether it's worth getting.

 

Underwhelmed.

What areas were re-used? The one mission on Earth?

Im with you on the re-skinning of enemies and the new music was cool.

Pro tip to anyone else needing to level quickly; equip a ghost that grants extra xp if you have one, purchase a fireteam medallion from eververse for 50 dust and play the story with those. If not levelled enough do heroic public events. The grind was only 20 minutes, and contributed to two of the milestones at the same time.

Once you try the raid lair you wont complain about lack of raids. With the last one it felt like a new area, and probably only a little bit shorter than the Crota raid from D1. I havent tried the new endgame activity yet so cant comment.

Im not sure what you were expecting for the dlc. It was never going to be a huge update.

From what I've heard the 2 dlc's were developed in tandem with the main game so there's not going to be a big overhaul until possibly the next one.

Risk runner, sunshot, hard light and even skyburners oath all feel pretty good. Liking the new level ups and it really pays off thinking about your loadout. If only they could
Do more with that, than only have it as a temporary problem while youre UP.

If that's the case then I feel even more ripped off.

 

Yes the Earth area Yussry.

 

I just feel that they have no idea what they're doing. They'll be shoving out the next dlc at £20-£25 each the same as they did with The Taken King and Rise of Iron. I don't see why they followed the same Road Map as the previous game. There was a massive backlash for the first 2 dlcs on that game too, until they redeemed themselves with a fairly meaty expansion.

 

There have been no lessons learned(by them or me) This time round they've been getting all the extra cash from micro transactions, so surely they could've hired more people to do the work needed to bring the dlc up to scratch this time round.

There are many problems they have with satisfying demand for content. Apparently D2 got re started 10 months before release so they had a lot to do with no time. Crazy that they did the same as D1. This meant that there was not enough time to make the dlc as impressive as it should have been as the main devs started work on the September expansion. This time they brought in other studios to help, but still not good enough. However, these two dlcs are much better than Crota and House of Wolves. At least there are new planets to explore which there werent until TTK launched.

Ill go out on a limb here and say that year 1 of D2 is loads better than year 1 D1; its just that they made the game more casual so there is less end game, and forgot about what made years 2 and 3 of D1 good.

The schedule, no doubt forced by Activision is to blame here.

The only real enjoyment I've got from this game is actually playing with buddies. The game itself is a great shooter but the way they have treated us consumers is fucking tragic. Totally agree with Wayne on this.

I tried destiny 1 when it first came out. It was ok but not great. I dipped in at the mid way point but it was only at the end that I got into it properly.

Sadly it looks like that's how D2 is going.
