There is no denying Destiny was one of the biggest disappointments of last year; an awkward, disjointed jumble of half-baked ideas that only glimpsed the true potential of what could be. The Taken King might not make up for that first year and all of its shambling about, but it puts Destiny on a path that, as someone who spent all of last year whining endlessly to anyone who would listen, I can finally shut my mouth and just enjoy the game. If that isn't an incredible feat, I don't know what is.
Providing that the upcoming raid is strong and we see good support and content-rich expansion during Destiny’s second year, we could see this MMO-shooter go from a game beloved by a dedicated core of fans to one that excites the mass market for years to come. It got this RPG fanatic invested in a shooter for the first time since Hexen, and it might just hook you, too.
We enjoy it, and just as we've done for a full year now, we intend on revisiting the game regularly in the months ahead. Destiny is a great shooter, and The Taken King is a fantastic continuation and evolution of last years' release. It builds on the base game and improves it in almost every way, and while it might be pricey, it's an essential expansion for fans (and a great starting point for newcomers).
