Gaming Age (Sep 19, 2017)
At its core, Destiny 2 takes everything you loved about the original and cranked it up to 11. The graphics are flashier, the sound effects are louder, the content is meatier, and the overall experience is better. Plus, there is a ton of stuff to do after you see the game’s ending credits. Some nice surprises also await, but it’s the stuff we all know about: the Raid the Nightfall Strikes, and yes, even Xur, that will extend your play sessions throughout the next few months until the first expansion hits in December. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with Destiny 2, and yet after playing for almost two weeks I still have much to discover. Bungie has delivered a feature-rich experience that’s not to be missed!

If you avoided the original Destiny because of its launch issues have no such fears with Destiny 2. And if you’re just curious about Destiny 2 and want to play casually you can find plenty of quick, satisfying things to do while enjoying some of the best art, sound design, music scoring, and shooting mechanics in the video game industry.
TrueAchievements (Oct 03, 2017)
Destiny 2 takes the groundwork set out by its predecessor and refines some of its rough edges, especially in terms of its plot. Bungie hasn't changed the fundamentals of the game but has made it feel a lot more accessible to new players. They've increasing the number of activities there are for players, although the grind does eventually set in. That said, it doesn't quite feel like a sequel. There isn't much in the way of brand new content — a lot of what has been added is the same as before but just repackaged in some way. The title does still have plenty of room to grow and if its life cycle is anything like that of the original Destiny, the game may look and feel different in two years time. With two expansions already on the horizon, we may even see a few changes in the very near future.

Destiny 2 brings the same excellent gunplay and the same game loop, but adds more mission variety and a decent story. There are lots of other little changes as well, but also many of the same problems that players leveled against the first game. Despite its problems, Destiny was a great game, and Destiny 2 follows suit. Fans of the series and newcomers can both jump in, safe in the knowledge that they will have a damn good time.
Way Too Many Games (Oct 23, 2017)
For all intents and purposes Destiny 2 is absolutely a sequel. It expands on everything from the SP experience and the MP experience, creating a bigger and better game but it is still not perfect and left me with some head scratching design choices. Not only is the grind ruined, but there really isn’t a point to get up to the 350 level cap. Playing the Raid on prestige mode isn’t going to offer you any overly great rewards, Iron Banner isn’t based off stats anymore so it’s essentially just a slightly more competitive crucible match. Somehow Bungie made the early grind a blast and more streamlined, but at the same time ruined the late game grind that all the hardcore fans loved about the first. As seen in recent news this is why some of the player base is leaving. There’s just no reason to keep playing and grinding, which is a shame because it nailed just about everything else. Destiny 2 is already in deep need of extra content.
IGN (Sep 15, 2017)
Destiny 2 is a blast out of the gate thanks to its excellent co-op shooter gameplay and strong storytelling in the campaign. Not all the features I’d expected to find are here, but it does deliver the same kind of highly social gameplay and rewarding, loot-driven progression that helped the original keep me hooked for hundreds of hours. The main concerns right now are a few bugs and lack of event options, but I’ll definitely be sticking around to see this big, action-packed universe develop over time.

Sans être révolutionnaire, Destiny 2 fait le travail que l'on attendait de lui. À savoir, corriger les nombreux défauts d'un jeu qui possédait des bases très intéressantes. Toujours aussi envoûtant, grâce à son impressionnante direction artistique et la beauté de sa bande-son, Destiny 2 propose cette fois une expérience solo digne de ce nom, sans rien perdre de son aura en multijoueur. Épique, seul ou avec des amis, le jeu est tout simplement plus riche, plus complet, mieux pensé. Ce qui fait toute la différence. Si vous aviez aimé le premier épisode, on voit mal comment vous pourriez ne pas succomber à sa suite. Reste la question de savoir si le jeu plaira à ceux qui avaient boudé Destiny, en 2014. Le jeu est certes plus long, plus garni, mais le concept de base reste le même, avec au centre du gameplay, le loot et le grinding.

If you want a shooter that gives you more activities--and guns--than you know what to do with, Destiny 2 is your game.

On first impression, there's a lot to love about Destiny 2, with stunning graphics and a much more accessible single player experience, but until we're running raids at 2am with a clan full of fellow Guardians, we'll have no idea if this has succeeded or not. In terms of what I've played so far, there's not much to worry about.
The Guardian (Sep 14, 2017)
Everything you hated about the first three years of the game has been refined, removed, or reappraised, and the game that was left was one that makes sense from toe to tip. And then Bungie added in just a little bit of extra bullshit, focused on endgame micro-transactions.

If I had to compare Destiny 2 to anything, it would be like trying to rekindle a relationship with an old flame. It might be fun for a while, and it could even work out, but at the end of the day it’s just more of the same. With this being said, if you enjoyed the first game, you’ll love (or at least enjoy) the second. While I don’t regret buying it by any means, Destiny 2 lacks the magic that kept me yearning for more on our first excursion.
