Overall, The Taken King is an experience that I feel will keep me engrossed for weeks to come. Secrets continue to be discovered and unlocked by the Destiny Community every day, and there is still a cache of loot to collect. While a couple frustrating features were simply repackaged, the attention spent on story and fresh content more than make up for it. Plus, the developers’ shift on how one can play Destiny, or what one can do in Destiny foreshadows a bright future for the series.
The story is presented better than ever, the new subclasses offer different playstyles and draw players together, and the grind is alleviated thanks to a plethora of post-game missions and the Dreadnaught patrol zone. We haven’t played the raid and are choosing to judge Destiny on the content that will be delivered to players on day one, but we have incredibly high hopes given everything we’ve seen so far.
The improvements to the user interface and quest system alone make the game so much more playable, but they quickly fade to the background once you dig into the content. The game is not without some minor annoyances, but the good far outweighs the bad. You couldn’t pick a better time to try Destiny if you haven’t yet. The Taken King is a testament to Bungie’s craftsmanship and its ability to listen to the feedback from the players who both loved and hated year one. The studio has given us a game that truly is legend.
