Destiny is great fun, don’t get me wrong. But it’s rather simple fun, whether you’re a casual mostly single-player gamer like myself or whether you like to team up with friends and tackle larger missions. It just needs a bit more going on in its world, and a bit more back-story going on in the actual game instead of on Bungie’s website. In this video, Honest Game Trailers on YouTube has a friendly dig at the current state of 2014’s biggest gaming “eh”.
“The storytelling of Halo, the scope of World of Warcraft, and the cooperative fun of Borderlands… may eventually get patched in. But until then, prepare for gaming’s hottest 7 out of 10: Destiny.”
It’s all in good humour, obviously — like me, the guys at Smosh Games are big fans of Destiny‘s beautiful visuals and vaguely addictive gameplay — but takes careful aim at a few of the title’s most annoying features and bugs, including but not limited to the lack of matchmaking, Peter Dinklage’s monotone voice acting, and the game’s seemingly random and haphazard engram decryption. At least that last one was patched out the other day.
