New players will find a game that offers a ton of great content and the fantastic gameplay this game has become known for. Veterans can breathe a sigh of relief that this is the expansion that the game desperately needed, even though it’s held back by roadblocks built to slow your progression. This is the first true expansion for Destiny and it’s the culmination of all the potential the original game showed when it first released.
This is very close to the same competent but flawed shooter you played last year. Brand new players should probably jump on this opportunity to try the game out with the "Legendary Edition," which provides the base game, both DLCs, and the Taken King expansion, but anyone who hated Year One will only find the improvements to be incremental at best. Slowly but surely, Bungie is morphing this chimera of a game into something more presentable.
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.
