Destiny Review (Activision)

What It Is

Destiny from Activision is a T-rated, first-person shooter game. It's not the type of game we typically review at TTPM, but considering that the game is the best-selling new franchise ever, the chances are good that the kids in your life are talking about it. We thought you might want some information to help in your decision as to whether they should be playing it. The game revolves around the player shooting and killing aliens in a story that is told through mission-based levels that occur around the Earth and surrounding planets. You can play the game on your own or with other people online. As you progress in the game, you continually upgrade your character's level and weapons, which is done through a clear and easy to follow menu system.

Is It Fun?

Destiny's graphics, effects, and sounds are top notch. The game has an interesting, post-apocalypse story, and characters that mix science-fiction and fantasy with a touch of horror.

Who It’s For

The game is rated T, meaning for ages 13 and up, because of the animated blood and violence, both of which are mild compared to other T-rated games.

What To Be Aware Of

You will encounter other players in open areas of the game, including expansive battle arenas and The Tower, which acts as a base and market for the game characters. Those interactions are fairly limited. However there is also an online multiplayer mode called The Crucible, where players compete against other players in team-based battles. As with any online multiplayer game, you have no control over the language used by other players.

Destiny is available for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
