I was able to play Destiny 2 for about an hour and a half today before having to head out for some last minute business travel, so you’ll have to forgive the short post here as I toss out just a few very early impressions.
These impressions are strictly about the ‘feel’ of the game and the ‘look’ of the game. They’re the superficial snap judgements one forms within minutes of playing.
Destiny 2 is a very nice looking game. In fact, one of the nicer looking games I’ve played recently. I say that as someone who appreciates stylized graphics. I don’t think Destiny 2 will win any awards for technologically advanced graphics or anything, but I still think it’s beautiful.
What I like best about the way it looks is that it runs just as smooth. My computer is now over 3 years old which means it’s ancient in computer years. That’s like 21 years in doggy years, and 100 years old in computer years. Much longer and I’ll have to take it out back and put it out of its misery. Speaking of which, I think a power outage we just had yesterday forced my audio to get stuck at one level: insanely high. Something must have shorted.
Anyway, the game runs perfectly. I have no complaints at all about performance. The game runs smooth, controls smooth, feels good playing, etc.
Jumping is a little floating at times, which is more of an observation than a complaint.
Gunplay is top notch. I wish more games would control and feel like this. I don’t understand why we can’t have a Battlefield game that feels like this.
Looking forward to getting back home to log a few more hours and give you my thoughts on the actual gameplay and story.
