    Bungie has delivered an experience that, down to the last bullet, is truly satisfying.

    Long story short, Destiny 2 - Forsaken delivers the ultimate Destiny experience. Its few QoL and balance flaws won't stop you from enjoying a couple of gorgeous and well-crafted new areas, as well as a dark, immersive story and a game-changing new raid. Probably your best chance to come back and stick around for months, maybe years.

    By far the best expansion Bungie has released to date.

    Even though the campaign is short, the story is thrilling and prepares the players for some interesting upcoming events. Thanks to two new areas, a new raid, and the brand new Gambit mode, Destiny 2 earns a better handled expansion.

    For the average player, this expansion has a much longer tail than previous iterations of Destiny 2. The variety and flexibility of activities established in the base game still work to make grinding a good time, and Gambit adds a consistently entertaining mode to the roster. The endgame, while difficult to reach, is also where the most satisfaction can be found.

    With a darker, more nuanced story, loads of activities, and clever tweaks to its core systems, Forsaken vastly improves the quality, quantity, and structure of content in Destiny 2. It's expensive, especially if you don't own the base game, and it could still peter out if the raid is bad or the DLC is as poor as it was last year. But as of now, Destiny is officially fun again.

    Destiny 2 Forsaken is a whole new game, a whole lot of game, but it’s also the exact same game. It's "fun" – Destiny always was – but it's a loop of endlessly increasing numbers and loot and numbers and loot and more numbers and not enough numbers and I just don't know why I'm doing it anymore.

    Forsaken is what the game needed. There's so much stuff to do, every day I have a reason to log-in. If you liked Destiny (1), you'll love Forsaken.

    Simply breath-taking. It's an amazing expansion and it breaks me to see that 90% of the negative reviews are from people who want to hate onSimply breath-taking. It's an amazing expansion and it breaks me to see that 90% of the negative reviews are from people who want to hate on Activision or haven't even played the campaign yet. The Narrative is unlike anything we have previously seen on destiny, the feel of the came is crisp (the new weapon system and TTK changes make sure of that), and for the first time in destiny history, there is a pvp-PvE mode. Just because Bungie made massive screw-ups (the curse of the disappointment and a less disappointing Warmind) we need to remember that they orchestrated one of the greatest franchise of video game history Halo. Let's not forget that they also made The Taken King, which it is seen and Destiny 1's savior. What I am trying to say is that Bungie is capable of creating an iconic and Forsaken is nothing short of a masterpiece. Oh, and for those oblivious who say that the expansion is overpriced and that you have to pay 150$ if you haven't got the expansions, there is a bundle that you can buy for sixty bucks that include Destiny 2, Curse of Osiris, Warmind, and Forsaken. In my opinion, that IS worth the sixty dollars. Take a look at the taken king. It was also 40$ and only included 16-18 GB of content. Forsaken is ALSO 40$ and it has 47 GB OF CONTENT. That is almost enough to make Forsaken a stand-alone game. Therefore, be happy that you got a full game worth's of story, content, lore, equipment, and exotics for just 60 bucks.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Forsaken is the newest expansion to Destiny 2, bringing Lots of content including great new story. Bungie Listened to the community and fixed many problems, in terms of weapon slot options, stat randomization, pvp ranks introduction, new activities (gambit), bounties etc. The gunplay is deeply satisfying, while you're playing in many different breath-taking environments (hours' worth of rewarding exploration) with gorgeous visuals , playing through new content, which lasts for hours. The game is available on most platforms, and is open to casual and serious players while bringing a challenge to everyone, either with pvp or the endgame raid.

    However, the grind can become repetitive and sometimes I struggled to see the endgame and the point of continuous repetitive grind, once I had done everything (takes a long time to get to this point). Also, it is quite expensive and bungie killed the only interesting character in the destiny universe, Cayde-6.

    The latest updates are a gamechanger. Especially in terms of weapon slot options, stat randomization. pvp ranks introduction, new activitiesThe latest updates are a gamechanger. Especially in terms of weapon slot options, stat randomization. pvp ranks introduction, new activities (gambit), bounties etc. The overall gunplay (now packs even more punch), extremely beautiful graphics and audio, unmatched-breathtaking skyboxes and landscapes, quality exotic gear are enough to keep you entertained for some time. The new location grants a lot of space, they started to put much more emphasis on the lore. Still best part being the endgame raid activities and pvp - which unfortunately require you to have a solid fireteam thats still quite hard to come by. The RPG mechanics aren't as complex as in case of Warframe but it feels like they are back on the right track once again. Despite the still existing flaws introduced at its initial release its easily among my current top 10 games.

    Standing on its own and ignoring the pricing this expansion is really good, by far the best one in Destiny 2.
    So why a 6 and not an 8 or 9 or even 10? The fact is that this does not stand on its own making the price point issue a valid one, you are basically buying the game again in order for the game to become what it should have been 1 year ago, you are paying them to add content so that it now is close to the amount it should have been on day 1. But greed is good, right? No, it drives customers away and to be honest only a few of those I played with in the beginning seem to even consider this expansion.
    Destiny 2 simply launched with to little content, amount of maps, the size of some, the strikes and so on and so forth. The raids on the other hand has always been great in this game but not everyone raids.
    There are a list of features that should have been in the game day one, like how gear and upgrading now works. The daily and weekly bounty feature is how it should have been long ago. Those I think are outside the expansion so at least something.

    The good.
    The story is by far the best one in Destiny, it could easily have been longer though so a missed opportunity even though it is the best.
    The new areas are good, adding a zone for max-level players with a high gear level is a good move.
    The addition made to the subclasses are well done.

    The bad.
    The price, at a lower price like say 20$ without the season pass and 35$ with the season pass and this would have been an easier sell. As it stand I am not going to recommend that anyone buy it, wait until they drop the price.
    While the story is good it is a missed opportunity in how most part of it could easily been made longer and more engaging.

    What else to say? Bungie once again does what they did in the first Destiny. So I guess that in Destiny 3 they will remove all these features and again sell us a game with less content then it should have.
