Picked this up on PC so I could play through with a friend. We’re at level 15 now.
Starting to get a little iffy about this whole thing due to the lack of enemy variety - feels like we’ve been fighting the Flood and the goblin guys aimlessly on Titan for ages. I actively avoid those sporadic battles that happen around quest-givers because they’re so unfulfilling and bland.
Strangely, the solo missions you’re occasionally forced to do look a lot better than the rest of the game, almost like they’re Halo missions. I wonder why they’re able to do more with those segments than they are with the open-world stuff?
On the plus side, I love the magnum and adore the shotgun. Both feel great and are super satisfying to blast aliens with. Also enjoying the sword, though I wish there was a lot more to it than just “auto targets to nearby enemy, press attack.”
I have a lot of friends saying that the core game is really lacking and was clearly pushed out the door early, and that the actual “good stuff” is in Taken King and Forsaken, which is $30 bucks. I’m considering it, but I don’t love the idea of Bungie getting money for severely under-delivering on the core game.
