Destiny 2: Lightfall reviewed by Travis Northup on Xbox Series X/S & PC, additionally obtainable on PlayStation.
Lightfall is a disappointing enlargement with a marketing campaign that falls flat on its face, an underwhelming new vacation spot, and just a few new standout actions to tackle. But Strand and the brand new Tormentor enemy are nice additions to the sandbox, and a few of the endgame actions, together with the raid, are a blast. No doubt Lightfall’s shortcomings are made extra painful by instantly following The Witch Queen and its sturdy post-launch updates.
It's a dark souls game now with the difficulty change
Agreed — $100 for this update?! no thanks.
But is it truly worse than shadowkeep… Despite it being confusing and very abrupt, the campaign is still probably the third best in D2 behind Forsaken and Witch Queen. We play a game we hate to love… and know historically has been bare bones through each dlc release. The level design and new content provided has been climbing, its definitely 2nd best next to Witch Queen.
They gave shadow keep a 7.9 and this a 6??? Sure it's worse than the witch queen but worse than shadow keep??? 😂😂 What a joke
To be honest I’m unsure if the strand subclass in new for Titans. The strategies we employ haven’t changed we use the same exotics in the same way at the same times. All in all strand in general 10/10, titan strand 5/10 because it’s powerful
4:00 new melee ability is pushing it for Titans. It’s the same melee ability
IGN be like YEAHHH we are so excited for DLC & bungie sponsor them to immediately give the score 6 nice LoL
lol @ 3:18 every single expansion guardians spend the first 2 months invisible. Why does that keep happening?
I'd give it a 6 or 7. It was fun and interesting, but kinda shallow. Makes sense after The Witch Queen. That DLC was deep af
Handcannon in DPS phase?
6? That’s generous.
Maybe they took some pointers from Steve Danuser
This guy's gameplay is piss poor
Can’t even bring myself to complete the free Lightfall first mission. For me, Destiny is tired, incoherent and long passed its sell-by date
It feels like the subclass was supposed to be released last expansion, but didn't make it.
So they made rushed new expansion to introduce it.
Handcannon in Raid DPS phase?
Your 5 rockets: "Am I a joke to you?"
What crazy is warframe is trying something different and unique with their upcoming update. While destiny 2 doing the same thing for 3 expansion.
Hard disagree on Neomuna being disappointing. There's diverse indoor and outdoor metropolitan area, a beach/cave area, the return of vex-land, all awesome-looking and fun to explore, and there's a bunch of different public events and little puzzles all over the place. And the lost sectors go way harder than in previous destinations. No idea what more you could have wanted.
This expansion introduces the first "strand-type" sub-class
The raid though. Nezarec didn’t stand a chance to the funniest weapons for dps. The explicator guy is genuinely scary though.
This is such a massive burn, especially after Witch Queen.
Lmao at the invisible gun/guardian glitch making its way into the review footage.
It's seriously making crucible unplayable right now
Expansion was extremely lackluster
Ain’t no way they gave it a 5 last week now they want to change it up lmao
This is an extremely harsh score.
So basically the current asking price is not worth it..wait for sale..
Destiny 2 disappoints again.
would you say your rating would be better if you weren't bad at the game
people still play this game?
“Finally gaining momentum” wut lmao
