• Review Destiny 2 (PS5) - A Solid Update for Hardcore Players

    No time to explain

    A lot has changed for Destiny 2 in the three years since release. After launching as a full-priced product, it decided to take the free-to-play route in late 2019. After teaming up with Activision to bring both the original game and this sequel to market, Bungie cut ties with the publisher to do it alone. And after expanding the...



  • Review Destiny 2: Forsaken (PS4)

    The cycle repeats

    It's hard to shake the feeling that we've been here before with Destiny 2: Forsaken. When The Taken King hit the original Destiny and propelled the game to a point where it once again felt complete and compelling, it was a welcome addition after months and months of frustration. It's the same story with Destiny 2, a title that's...


  • Review Destiny 2 (PS4)

    Bet the farm

    Republished on Wednesday 29th August 2018: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of September's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. Three years after the release of Destiny, here we are with a whole new title that's framed as a direct sequel. Hopping to a fresh release was Bungie's...


  • Review Destiny 2: Warmind (PS4)


    Destiny 2 is in a slightly better place than it was when the awkwardly average Curse of Osiris launched late last year, but that doesn't mean Warmind can be let off the hook. This second expansion is another lacking effort from a team that seems worryingly bereft of interesting ideas. Much like Osiris, Warmind marks another...



  • Review Destiny: Rise of Iron (PS4)

    Can't teach a Young Wolf new tricks

    Back near the end of last year, Destiny was in dire need of a revamp. The release had stagnated to a point where many players had simply stopped coming back to Bungie's sci-fi creation, with the game's first two expansions – The Dark Below and House of Wolves – doing little to reinvigorate the title or fix its...


  • Review Destiny: The Taken King (PS4)

    New monarchy

    It's been a rocky old road for Destiny, but it's finally found some smooth terrain with The Taken King – the title's biggest expansion to date. The new content marks the second year of Destiny's life, and with it comes the realisation that Bungie has taken a rather large step forward in crafting something special. It's undoubtedly...


  • Review Destiny: House of Wolves (PlayStation 4)

    Pack mentality

    Where The Dark Below seemed to stumble around in the, er, dark, Destiny's second so-called expansion, House of Wolves, clearly aims to right the wrongs of its predecessor. Alongside the shooter's most recent patches, the newest slice of downloadable content does its best to make meaningful, positive changes to the shooter's formula,...


  • Review Destiny: The Dark Below (PlayStation 4)

    We can see the bottom

    It seems like you can't go a single day without seeing someone criticise Destiny. Bungie's shooter has been nothing if not divisive, but for all its flaws, many still enjoy scouring the same missions and maps in the hopes of buffing up their Guardian. If you're one of these players, then it goes without saying that this...


  • Review Destiny (PlayStation 4)

    Guardians of the galaxy

    Expectations breed negativity, and Destiny's long awaited launch has suffered for it. Despite making more money than we dare to imagine in its first 24 hours on the market, Bungie's latest project has attracted the ire of many players since its servers went live. After what feels like an eternity of hype and huge marketing...
