    When all is said and done I like the Warmind expansion more than Osiris. It features more likable characters, a more entertaining story, and way better post-game activities. It probably won’t change anyone’s opinion of Destiny 2 – so if you like the gameplay, graphics, sound (amazing score as always), and the story up to this point, Warmind does a great job pushing that experience even higher.

    Warmind effectively rounds out Destiny 2’s first year, and represents a franchise in a strange period of transition. The game seeks to maintain some of its successful new features, like better destinations and clan integration, even as it simultaneously tries to recapture some of the magic and investment that characterized its predecessor. The weapon is aiming at the right target, and now it just needs to hit that precision shot.

    Destiny 2: Warmind is the new beginning that the franchise needed and the community hoped. The ranking system in the Crucible and the Escalation Protocol are satisfying and very challenging. The only regret is that the main campaign of this expansion could have been more in-depth.

    For Destiny 2 fans, Warmind is a good addition to an enjoyable game that doesn’t break the mold, but makes some incremental improvements that make it a worthwhile purchase. For everyone else, there’s little in the expansion that’s going to excite or hold attention if Destiny 2 wasn’t already doing that, making it an easy skip.

    Destiny 2: Warmind is still not the expansion that returns those disappointed with the trajectory of the game.

    Warmind seems to indicate that Bungie is serious about getting Destiny 2 back on track, although a lot of that could be the result of better updates between expansions, rather than any real excellence from the expansion itself. Still, Warmind is a significantly better expansion than last year's Curse of Osiris and brings back a little of the mystery that made uncovering secrets in the original title so compelling. The Destiny 2 experience might still be a little off, but this is a pretty good place to jump back into the action.

    Like its predecessors, Destiny 2: Warmind struggles to justify its price tag thanks to a throwaway campaign and some incredibly tired mission design. The quality of Destiny's core gameplay is still clear to see and the expansion as a whole is dotted with a handful of high points, but it ultimately just feels like the game is purposefully treading water until September's big arrival -- and that's simply not good enough.

    The people complaining about this game are the same people playing FTP Fortnite and base all of their hobbies on what's the most popular. IThe people complaining about this game are the same people playing FTP Fortnite and base all of their hobbies on what's the most popular. I base mine off gameplay and off of good mechanics, graphics and sound. Destiny 2 is a well-rounded and underappreciated package, and this DLC is a great extension to the people that stuck with it like me. Expand

    I have been an avid Destiny player since day one of Destiny 1, and I have not played in a few weeks due to many of the issues that have beenI have been an avid Destiny player since day one of Destiny 1, and I have not played in a few weeks due to many of the issues that have been repeated throughout the community. If I were rating the UPDATE including the changes unlocked for all players, this would be a 10. Although many of the improvements are separate from the purchase of this DLC, I feel that they complement each-other in a way that elevates the new content beyond its' admittedly lackluster campaign. This update is aimed at endgame content, not story. If the story was amazing and double the length, it would still be burned through in 1-2 days and we would go back to mourning over lack of "reasons to play". I feel that the purpose of the DLC was to catapult you through a few missions and set the stage for the new endgame grind in the form of Escalation Protocol, collectibles and the pursuit of masterworks. They certainly could have made the story content longer and more meaningful while still supporting the endgame, but if I have to choose, I will gladly take longevity. Please note, no review will really be complete until all of the content is released. We have yet to see the new Raid Lair, and if it is anything like the last one it is well worth the $20 price tag by itself (in my opinion). If you enjoy the core of the game, the gunplay and the grind, this is more to sink your teeth into. If you are looking for a drastic overhaul of the core gameplay, I suggest you wait for September when a more comprehensive rework is expected. They are likely to release expansions 1 and 2 along with the September content in a bundle, so that may be a better choice for anyone who is in that camp. I do not think this is a masterpiece by any means, but I do think that a lot of hard work went into this content and it has breathed new life and excitement into the game for me. Expand

    With the time Bungie has had since the release of Destiny 2 you would think they would have taken on board fans feedback and bettered the gameWith the time Bungie has had since the release of Destiny 2 you would think they would have taken on board fans feedback and bettered the game just like the original Destiny. With Warmind it's essentially the same game as previous with very little story added in. The campaign is extremely short. The story is barely there. Bungie missed a real opportunity to build on the lore of Rasputin but it felt like they withdrew a lot of details. It just felt extremely repetitive again, it didn't feel like they added new content. Let's not end it on a low note. There is a new raid coming and just a filler like Expansion 1 so fresh new content there with some puzzles thrown in. Great new tweaks to exotics making it feel like they're 'exotic'. Has a great 80s-esque soundtrack and new strikes and difficulty raised on them. It just stings that Bungie had a massive opportunity here and just failed to pull it off. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. THE GOOD:
    Exotic weapons feel special again with the 1.2 patch.

    There are more things to chase for in the end game, like:
    - Getting max light-level is much more difficult (385)
    - Collecting data and nodes on Mars to unlock curtain loot
    - Ranked PVP in Valor and Glory

    The new Raid Lair "Spire of Stars" is fun and challenging to do, which will ensure that players need to spend more time to master this raid.

    THE BAD:
    The campaign takes 1,5 hour to finish and It contains 5 missions with 2 of those are strikes. The story line introduce 3 legendary characters that just gets thrown in your face with no build up to who they are and where they came from (Ana, Nokris, Xol).

    There is a new game mode called Escalation Protocol which you can do with 9 guardians. However, Bungie has not taken any effort to allow players to get a team of 6-9 guardians together in a fireteam to play this new mode. Instead, you can make only up to 3 members and hope the other 6 join you in the public space on Mars.

    The new weapons are from Destiny 1 that Bungie is reselling or re-skins from the base Destiny 2.

    PVP Matchmaking is still not fixed (solo players vs. clan groups)

    THE VERDICT:
    If you own the expansion (most of you), it is worth checking out this DLC and you might like the grind for a few weeks. However, do not expect any major improvements from where we were 7 months ago.

    If you do not own the DLC, it is not worth your time and money to jump in again.

    FINAL SCORE: 3
    This is just because there is finally a certain level of grind in the end game

    This game is utter garbage thankfully it was free on psn. I know I shouldn't complain cause its a free game but I am cause I can play WarframeThis game is utter garbage thankfully it was free on psn. I know I shouldn't complain cause its a free game but I am cause I can play Warframe free and Defiance 2050 and be more happy with that over this huge pile of dog $hit. How can bungie be happy for this game when its so disgustingly bad. Heck they added a new pvp mode called Gambit that should be with the base game NOT the dlc. The whole idea psn having Destiny 2 free this month was a money ploy to try and hook players into buying there terrible DLC. DO NOT FALL FOR THERE SCHEME THERE LAZY ASSES RUINED THERE OWN GAME. Around every corner screams MICRO-TRANSACTIONS. Lvled all calsses to 20 and there gears are 265 Llvl so people that thik i didn't give this game a shot please understand I did even with a friend and we were both falling asleep to how BORING this is the base game is so naked and you'd be a fool to support that by buying the dlc and those who did are part of the problem saying its ok for them to continually **** us.

    4 recycled missions..? (even shoter then curse of osiris...)
    - recycled content
    - recycled locations
    - recycled weapons
    - recycled mechanics
    - still no new enemies
    - recycled strikes ( one being ps4 exclusive... and only 4 total...)
    - Enemy AI is still a joke...
    - forgettable story. ( fighting the hive again... really?)
    - eververse is still a problem...
    - rather buggy and glitchy... (rushing content now?)

    It just blows my mind a studio like bungie with over 1000 people is turning out so little content and did not learn anything from curse of osiris. all the same problems exist (some worst), this should have been free, theirs no passion, contents still dull, still feels like a cash grab... not worthy of the "expansion". almost everything im saying is mirrored with curse of osiris. They should also be fixing destiny 2 before working on destiny 3. As i said before, games struggling and is in need of a massive overhaul and potentially new team. simaler to how final fantasy 14 1.0 became 2.0. https://youtube.com/watch?v=Xs0yQKI7Yw4
    highly unlikely though since activision and bungie are just riding out their reputation and milking their fans of what they have left. sad to see what bungie has become
