    Forsaken will persistently be a different game with new things to do and discover each and every week, and I don’t see that slowing down anytime soon.

    Regardless how far you've traveled in the Destiny universe, taking on this continued adventure is one you won't regret. The raid, which releases shortly after the Forsaken expansion, will surely be another great experience, if for no other reason than the loot it offers. Even without the raid, the rest is well worth the time and energy. The only thing holding it back is how the Destiny expansions work, which require all prior DLC to be purchased, including Forsaken, which will understandably be a turnoff for some newcomers.

    Bungie has done an excellent job in, not just creating enough content for the game’s fourth season and start of the second year, but in reviving a game that stuttered after its initial launch.

    Destiny 2: Forsaken moves the franchise forward by taking a step back, but the epic story and new content give players plenty to do, and once again sets itself up for years of intense firefights.

    Forsaken re-forges Destiny 2 with a dangerously addictive endgame.

    Forsaken is a buffed, Taken King-like, expansion and its exactly what the game desperately needed. It adds a lot of content (especially for the hardcore part of its community) with an enormous new Raid and well hidden secrets that are enough to keep the players busy until the next DLC drops in a few months.

    If this review reads like a roller coaster of emotions, that's because Destiny 2: Forsaken, like all things post-2010 Bungie, is lopsided.

    When I hung up my metaphorical destiny hat 2 months ago I thought id never come back/enjoy the game again. Forsaken has proven me wrong.

Forsaken has a good story by destiny 2 standards, the new areas, the bow weapon type, the new subclasses, random rolls on weapons and the new raid are all absolutely fantastic and some of the best content we've seen to date.

    Now if you're someone with even a vague idea of how Bungie works, you're asking "where's the catch". Well, the entire progression system has been completely trashed, pretty much every aspect of the game has been made more grindy, the number of activities has increased dramatically which is good because there's more to do, but bad because it's almost impossible to keep up with three characters in a week and not treat Destiny 2 like a job. Basic infusion has been made ridiculously expensive requiring planetary materials, glimmer, legendary shards AND masterwork cores. Exotics are rare again, but with the entire year 1 loot pool being lumped in with the new forsaken exotics don't expect to enjoy any of the new stuff anytime soon. All in all the experience feels like Bungie has pulled out all the stops to frustrate the levelling process and extend the grind knowing that forsaken needs to last them a year with only minor DLC drops to pad it out.

    All in all, if you can dedicate the time to Forsaken it's a fun experience and a return to form for Bungie, I just wish they'd stop trying to fix stuff like the progression system that was totally fine to begin with.

    Well ,here we are again,in the second era of the taken king,the dlc might be even be better and deserves higher,but with all the **** bungieWell ,here we are again,in the second era of the taken king,the dlc might be even be better and deserves higher,but with all the **** bungie pulled off they get -1 score
    positive
    + The campaign is good in destiny standards,but if it would have been a new halo campaign,it would have been garbage
    + The dreaming city is fantastic ,and holds many secrets
    + The raid is amazing and hard,but it also gives a pride of accomplishment.(get it?)
    + Crucible is finally fun again,and the graviton meta is over!
    + Weekly resets feel finally great again with so many stuff changing every week
    + This dlc goes up to 600 power level,if somebody now says this dlc is over in a week,he definitly hasn't played this dlc
    + A lot of the weapons are no reskins,which is a wonder
    + The corrupted and warden of nothing are easily the best destiny 2 strikes by a long shot,the 2 other ones are okay but are like every other strike( the broodhold boss is also pretty good do)
    + The new crucible mode is in my opinion,the most fun destiny 2 crucible mode
    + The new crucible maps are alright to pretty good
    + Edge transit is the best and most unique exotic of the game,and their are also other good exotics
    + They have the balls to kill a character
    mixed
    = malfeasance quest is a not fun and and pain in the ass quest,but because it is challenging,i gave it mixed
    = Gambit is fun,don't get me wrong,but the sleeper makes gambit half the fun
    negative
    - The RNG is this game sucks as hard as getting a good player in a gold pack in fifa
    - It also has to do with RNG ,but plz bring keys back for nightfall strike specific weapons
    - I again feels like i wanted more of the campaign
    - Crucible is not perfect because the base d2 maps were designed for 4v4
    - Blind well is literally archeon's forge and will die if there comes a new wave based activity
    Conclusion:
    The dlc is good,but not perfect,it kinda saved destiny 2 ,but it won't bring people to the game who hated it always in the first place,it is literally up to you or you want to pay 40 bucks
