Just in case you didn't know - Destiny 2 is now free to play some content. You can get few campaigns, lots of single missions and access to pvp modes for free. The game is really cool and worth giving it a try. I missed it on release, but enjoying it now.

Love–hate relationship
Destiny 2 is an action MMO set in a single, evolving world that you and your friends can join anywhere, anytime, absolutely free. Offering several great dungeons and raids as well as a superb PvP. The game itself is free, but contains many paid DLCs.

Rating:
7/10. Its good, but has a few downsides that I cant ignore.


Is it worth buying?
The initial cost is 0$, so yes. However, if you have any plans whatesover on playing more of the game, you will have to pay probably 80$+. Is the dlcs worth buying? I would say it depends on the person. For a casual I would say its better to just find a new game, for those who really like destiny, its not a problem to spend a little extra on additional content.


Content & Replay Value:
Replay value when it comes to story I would say is close to 0, but the replay value of the pvp and raids are very good. There are at least 100+ hours of quality content here, and much more if you really enjoy the game.

Pros
1.
The gunplay is fantastic. Guns pack a proper punch. The handling feels solid, and there is nothing better than sniping another guardian in the head. The movement slightly differs from class to class but the mix of dodges and jumps provides more flexibility and a greater skill gap. There are certainly some balancing needed, however all in all I would say the gunplay is great.
2.
The dungeons and raids are a great combination of puzzles, combat, parkour and boss fights. To finish a raid you pretty much have to have a mic and communicate with your team, but as long as your team consists of your friends its gonna be a great time. However, if your team is filled with randoms, prepare for a horrible time.
3.
The uniqueness of exotic perks are truly where destiny shines. It can range from "Melee kills restore health for a short duration." to "Sliding reflects projectiles". These exotics can drastically change your playstyle and makes the replay value a whole lot better.
Cons
1.
Yes this game is free. However, if you plan on playing any of the end game, or have any cool or unique armor or guns, you will have to spend money on DLCs. Playing this game without any DLCs is like eating french fries without salt, its possible... but are you okay?
2.
If none of your friends play destiny 2, good luck with the end game content. You will be constantly reminded of how brain dead randoms can be. Also, playing destiny alone can be extremely boring. I personally NEVER boot the game if none of my friends are down to join. This may be very subjective but I can not play this game alone and not go insane.
3.
The general destiny community is pretty decent. Don't get me wrong, I have made some great friends through raids and dungeons, however the illusion of a friendly non-toxic community dissolves once you enter ranked PvP in any form. It is insane how many entitled bottom fraggers I have met. So many people join, don't say a word the whole game, gets 27 damage, and rages once you lose. PvP can be great fun, just highly unlikely to achieve with randoms. Now there are exceptions to this as well, just extremely rare.
4.
Destiny does this fun little thing called "Vaulting content" which in long terms means removing content youve paid for. This is extremely infuriating. Removing the less actively played content players paid for, vaulting them, and "maybe re-using them" is not an acceptable excuse and a certain way to lose players. Entire planets disappearing, huge storylines gone, several guns and armor pieces no longer able to acquire. This is very unfortunate for new players as they will most likely never experience those missions and never get their hands on the items.
5.
The matchmaking in this game is crazy. I can not tell you the amount of times me and my friend has queued for a match, and our teammate gets 0-25 damage per round, while every enemy has at least 3k hours in game and hits you the split second you peek. The matchmaking is truly a joke. You can not play this game seriously without having teammates before you queue.
Bugs & issues
As for ghost melee and the revive feature not working sometimes, its rather self explanatory. Sometimes when you hit a melee, it doesn't deal any damage and sometimes when you revive someone, they doesn't actually get revived. This can lead to you loosing a very intense fight due to something that shouldn't have happened, causing frustration, anger and maybe even sadness.
Technical
I use an i5 10400f with a 2070 super 8gb Vram and 32gb ram with a 280hz 1080p monitor, using a combination of mid to max settings and im sitting at around 180fps in pvp on average. It may drop down to around 140, but its never unstable or causes drastic fps drops. You will most likely not have any trouble with fps or performance if you have a decent PC.
Verdict: Good, but not great
All in all, Destiny 2 offers fun and satisfying PvP, unique armor and guns as well as fantastic raids and dungeons. Destiny 2 can be very enjoyable, but the negatives are too big to ignore. I give this game a 7/10.

The perfect description of a toxic relationship

Review from Steam

its like coke but costs more and gives you depression

Review from Steam

I'm sorry, Destiny 2. It's time we broke up. You have ruined my life, wasted my time with worthless grinding, and made me into an addict. Now, I can't stand you without thinking of all of the glorious times we had spent together. Goodbye, Destiny...
I'll see you again in 15 minutes.

I'm in way too deep. This game has taken everything from me and given me nothing in return.
Absolutely a pleasure to play.
