    Destiny 2: Forsaken is Destiny at its best. Many of the systems that players loved from the original have returned, and many features from Destiny 2 have been refined. If Bungie continues to produce expansions like this then Destiny will certainly last for ten years as promised.

    Destiny 2: Forsaken is shooting and looting at it's best. Taking down Uldren and conquering the Dreaming City is an absolute blast. And with the changes and additions to the sandbox, there are more ways to be a badass than we've ever seen before. Destiny is back, baby. And this time it's in it for the long haul.

    This update not only has improved Destiny 2 for those buying the expansion, but also for all players, regardless of the version they own.

    The Forsaken puts Destiny 2 into the good path again bringing an interesting story and some good ideas to the mix, plus fixing some of the game's mistakes.

    In the grand scheme of things, if you can afford it, Destiny 2 is now easily the best shooter on the market. I absolutely love where Destiny 2 is now, and hope the Forsaken expansion is a glimpse at things to come.

    Right now Forsaken seems to be taking Destiny in the right direction, giving us that killer combination of Halo and Diablo that we’ve always wanted.

    For the average player, this expansion has a much longer tail than previous iterations of Destiny 2. The variety and flexibility of activities established in the base game still work to make grinding a good time, and Gambit adds a consistently entertaining mode to the roster. The endgame, while difficult to reach, is also where the most satisfaction can be found.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I really enjoyed the game unlike most people, and knowing Cayde-6 as one of the more fun characters to be around it sucked to see him go, but the ending made up for all of it. You end Uldren the same way he ended Cayde and that's the most satisfying part about this dlc. Expand

    Simply breath-taking. It's an amazing expansion and it breaks me to see that 90% of the negative reviews are from people who want to hate onSimply breath-taking. It's an amazing expansion and it breaks me to see that 90% of the negative reviews are from people who want to hate on Activision or haven't even played the campaign yet. The Narrative is unlike anything we have previously seen on destiny, the feel of the came is crisp (the new weapon system and TTK changes make sure of that), and for the first time in destiny history, there is a pvp-PvE mode. Just because Bungie made massive screw-ups (the curse of the disappointment and a less disappointing Warmind) we need to remember that they orchestrated one of the greatest franchise of video game history Halo. Let's not forget that they also made The Taken King, which it is seen and Destiny 1's savior. What I am trying to say is that Bungie is capable of creating an iconic and Forsaken is nothing short of a masterpiece. Oh, and for those oblivious who say that the expansion is overpriced and that you have to pay 150$ if you haven't got the expansions, there is a bundle that you can buy for sixty bucks that include Destiny 2, Curse of Osiris, Warmind, and Forsaken. In my opinion, that IS worth the sixty dollars. Take a look at the taken king. It was also 40$ and only included 16-18 GB of content. Forsaken is ALSO 40$ and it has 47 GB OF CONTENT. That is almost enough to make Forsaken a stand-alone game. Therefore, be happy that you got a full game worth's of story, content, lore, equipment, and exotics for just 60 bucks. Expand

While notAt the story alone, I laughed, I cried, I felt vengeful and glorious. They expanded the world in the biggest way they ever have. While not technically part of the expansion they released weapon slot changes, time to kill changes, and uncountable quality of life changes that make the game an absolute joy to play. I was embarrassed to admit that I still played Destiny 2 throughout year one. Bungie kept dragging me along with a handful of decent changes in hopes that this expansion would fix the game. It did more than that, it made this the best version of destiny to ever exist. I will say, the reason I can't give it a 10/10 is the remaining lootboxes. They break my belief in the world far too often. They are bad for the consumer and while all of that is pretty bad in my eyes the game being good makes it less obvious. They have added a lot of things to mitigate the lootboxiness of it and I'm positive that if you play a decent amount every week and use your items wisely you will get everything (just like I did in season 3).

    Destiny 2: Forsaken was an impulse buy for me. Wasn't sure if I'd enjoy it, but I can say that ultimately I did.

    Destiny 2 has set the bar
    Destiny 2: Forsaken was an impulse buy for me. Wasn't sure if I'd enjoy it, but I can say that ultimately I did.

    Destiny 2 has set the bar very low for DLC; Curse of Osiris and Warmind, to put it lightly, sucked. Bungie doesn't seem to understand how to tell the story of Destiny's universe without excessively long exposition and a stack of cards that give you the really juicy stuff, but nobody's actually going to want to read.

    Story was nothing to be amazed at. I felt that the driving forces behind the story were ultimately hollow, and didn't ring true for a majority of the enemies fought. Speaking of enemies, the Scorn are a very welcome addition, the first enemy type that ISN'T A COPY FROM THE BASE GAME OF DESTINY 1. They are a real pain to defeat, though, and I feel like the faction really ups the ante from any of the other five.

    The new areas feel far more barren than other Destiny 2 areas, and that's saying something. Destiny has plenty of barren areas. Somehow, Bungie managed to one-up themselves in the worst way in that sense. Missions are still long, tedious and repetitive, and I'm sure this review sounds hopelessly negative.

    There are, of course, positives. Your light level rises rapidly throughout the DLC, giving you a sense of accomplishment at every turn, and I can say that Destiny 2 hit it out of the park with the addition of Gambit, which is the most fun I've had with Destiny, period. The price point is a bit of an issue, and I hope they fix that soon, but overall, it is an enjoyable experience. Would I recommend it over most other RPG shooters? No. Go play Borderlands if you want a loot-based shooter, it's superior in every way. But is it serviceable, and a positive addition to the base game of Destiny 2? Yes. The price is far too high, but should it go on sale or drop in any way, pick this up. It will provide you numerous hours of entertainment, until you finally realize Bungie doesn't know how to do a post-game grind whatsoever.

    This is the reason why gaming is being ruined nowadays. So Destiny 2 launched as some of the biggest s*** ever made in Video gaming history. IThis is the reason why gaming is being ruined nowadays. So Destiny 2 launched as some of the biggest s*** ever made in Video gaming history. I bought it at launch and sold it away within 4 days(NO JOKE). So let me explain what was so wrong with that game and what is wrong with this game. So Destiny 2 was supposed to be a massive revolution and was suppose to have an excellent story. The developers said something like, but not exactly, there will be so much story in Destiny 2 you will go crazy. Absolutely true BUNGIE. This game had so much s*** story it'll make you go crazy. On top of that, the microtransaction system was made to make you spend money. At this point, I have pretty much no choice but to accept these s*** systems, even though I would rather not, because fanboys would not let people who spoke out against the game. Not only that, the gameplay was so easy, like seriously you can beat it so easily. I know at this point I might as well go on the main game talk some of this **** on it, but I doubt anyone looks at that game anymore. This is the new s*** that everyone is talking about. I was hearing so many good things about this expansion and so I decided to buy it(Thank god I didn't buy the other expansions). And OMG. At first I thought they actually fixed this game...but I realized what they did later and was so disappointed. They did what they did in Destiny 1, in which they improved the game through the Taken King, but it was too late and it cost money, not a free DLC. This is what makes me realize that this game is a complete cash grab and please, if you love video games, or ever have, don't buy Destiny 2, this expansion and any other expansion. This is the review of an old timer that wants games to be great again. Expand
