    Is anyone playing it? Seems crazy hyped, but I'm not seeing it from the videos and user reviews. Sounds like a mishmash of Halo/Borderlands/WoW.

    I'm sure I will get suckered into purchasing it at some point, but it sounds like the level cap is low, and there isn't a ton of content.

    What say you folks?

    I haven't really seen much gameplay but it seemed like a Borderlands clone. Hard to beat those games. great feel and gameplay.

    And I loved Borderlands, but there was a ton of content, and it took about 2 playthroughs to max out a character... Destiny I'm hearing isn't quite like that.

    I didn't enjoy the Alpha and ended up cancelling my pre-order. I might pick one up when it gets cheaper.

    Played for the first time last night.

    If you were expecting a revolutionary game. It is probably going to be a meh.

    If you were expecting a solid story, easy and fluid game play, and a combination of a few elements from other top games, then you will be happy.

    It plays like Halo.
    Looks and feels like Borderlands
    Story like Mass Effect
    MMO like WOW.

    The most impressive thing to me is that you can feel just how big this game could get. There really is no limit to the DLC expansions they could add. Will be cool to watch it develop.

    Fun game, and that is what is most important.

    I gave in and bought it.

    Reviews are dead on. Combat is actually good, especially if you liked the feel of Halo's shooting.

    The rest of the game is very shallow. I didn't even realize that I won't be able to participate in the big 6 person Raids because they don't have matchmaking. You have to have 6 friends, near your level to participate. Lame.

    Gonna stick with it in hopes that they release new content every few weeks and the game builds out more.

    I hate this game because I keep playing it.

    I'm up to level 23 now. Running all blues, and still mostly playing solo.

    The story is garbage. So many design decisions are simply retarded... but the combat is fantastic, and I still find myself booting it up every night for about an hour.

    Halo is much, much better. But this has the skinner box components that draw people into the grind, like Diablo 3 or WoW.

    Seems pretty accurate.

    My addiction to it is quickly abating. I'm pretty maxed out on level, and everything now is grinding the same **** over and over. I've killed the Devil Archon like 20 times.

    I haven't had a chance to play as much as I'd like. Currently level 13 (so pretty low) but really like the combat mechanics. Agree the story is kinda stupid (I'm still not entirely sure what the story is about). That said, the game is a lot more fun when you're playing with others. I which there were more areas where you could link up with other players organically, instead of inviting them to a fireteam.

    IMO, the PvP options in the Crucible is a lot more fun than COD. I usually hop in there when I get sick of grinding out the levels, win some free **** and watch my team lose because my kill ratio is below 0.25

    Was gifted this game yesterday. Is it worth playing or should I take it back for $60?

    My addiction broke this weekend, i haven't turned it on since Sunday, not sure when I will turn it on again. Not sure how many hours I played.... 20? 30?

    It isn't a bad game. There are a lot of fun hours to be had with it. If you have another game you REALLY want, then maybe return for that game.... but other then that I would keep expectations low and keep the game.

    Ahhh man. I wish I looked at this sooner. I bought the game but luckily I haven't unwrapped it yet. Any recommendations for PS4.
