Review: Destiny

Activision has teamed up with Halo gods Bungie to create, well, what next-gen is all about, apparently.

Taking ‘epic’ and slapping it in the face with a huge amount of creativity and a dash of Mass Effect seen-it-but-still-impressed-by it sci-fi scope, Destiny is an open world space opera that’s incredibly hard to ignore.

First-person, third-person, RPG, actioner, blaster, everything elser, Destiny is like a hopped-up on Haribo but nevertheless really talented show-off at a party.

Your really very bespoke character – who’s still defined by thinly veiled gaming tropes – crosses galaxies, takes down empires and upgrades the hell out of him/herself until you’re left whispering ‘Darth who?’
